Santa Anita Race 2.   Post: 1:00 PT

1-Feeling Grazeful (2-1)

Maiden filly has four sprint efforts under her belt and should be ready to stretch out and earn her diploma.  The W. Spawr-trained filly has rising speed figures and enough early speed to use her rail post position to excellent advantage in a race that projects to have comfortable early fractions.  If she’s ever going to win around two-turns, it’ll be in her first try, and with F. Prat staying aboard she’s a logical top pick.

1-Hulk (7/2)

Seems to be an improving sort and ran a bit better than the line will show when pressing a hot pace outside before weakening late in a similar affair at Del Mar in early November.  Returning off a two month layoff, working nicely, and landing the good rail, the J. Mullins-trained gelding projects as the controlling speed, and given that type of trip could take control early and never look back.
