Santa Anita Park

SA 6 (G2 San Felipe, 8.5f) #5 The Great One (4-1) did not show much in his first three starts but he really turn the corner in his last pair. He almost upset Spielberg in the Los Al Futurity (G2) late last year, and broke his maiden by the length of the stretch in a local flat mile affair Jan. 23. He figures to track Life Is Good and should be in a position to pounce if/when that one comes back to the field.

SA 8 (G2 San Carlos, 7f) #9 Tigre Di Slugo (5-2) could not catch Brickyard Ride at six panels last time and he did not have the best trip in that event. The added furlong of this race might allow him to reel in that rival, and I like the outside post and Rosario rides him well. The lightly raced 6yo gelding owns ascending numbers and really seems to be hitting his stride now.
