BELMONT // RACE 4 (2:33PM ET) // ALLOWANCE // 1 MILE (TURF)
EDZO'S PICK: #3 FETCHING (10/1)
Mare didn’t seem to take to good turf course in her last start, but still finished a credible third to a nice Chad Brown filly – no disgrace there while wide most of way. Hoping for fast pace to set up fast finish from this one. Win-place bet.
SANTA ANITA // RACE 1 (4:00PM ET) // ALLOWANCE // 1 MILE (TURF)
EDZO'S PICK: #5 TETRAGONAL (9/5)
She gets away from Madone (finally, after 3 tries), while first-time Lasix, second start off the layoff, adds jockey Flavien Prat, and gets speed to run at with Plum Sexy and Risen Lady in this race. All equals ‘Go Time.’ I will settle for 8/5 as a fair price on win play. Key in doubles as well and to start the early pick five.
SANTA ANITA // RACE 3 (5:09PM ET) // ALLOWANCE // 6 FURLONGS (TURF)
EDZO'S PICK: #2 NIMBOSTRATUS (3/1)
She’s back on Lasix today, and note the last two times this filly was on it resulted in a win and a second. She looks to be a one-turn filly on grass, so throw out last race around two turns, and her race prior puts her right there. Win bet.
