Santa Anita - 4th race - Post time 2:00 PT
1 - Allie's Pal (5/2)
Although she has being raised in class from a maiden $50,000 claimer into maiden special weight company, this quick juvenile filly fits strongly on speed figures and is likely to improve in her second career start against what looks to be a modest field for the level. The Jonathan Wong-trained daughter of Creative Cause displayed superior early speed before being worn down late while winding up more than 10 lengths clear of the others, and sports a bullet :36 1/5 workout (fastest of 11) since that race. At 5/2 on the morning line, she should be able to open up early and keep on going.
Keeneland - 9th race - Post Time: 5:40 ET
4 - Crazy Beautiful (5/2)
Had her two race unbeaten streak snapped when a much-troubled second in the Pocahontas Stakes at Churchill Downs last month after rallying into a severe roadblock at the head of that cost her momentum. She finds a likely spot to regain her winning form in the prestigious Grade-1 Alcibiades Stakes while stretching out to her what we expect will be her preferred (two-turn) trip, so at 5/2 on the morning line we'll make her a strong play in the win pool and a rolling exotic single.
