Santa Anita Race 6 - Post: 3:06 PT

5-Excelerina (9/5)

We loved the way this Irish import inhaled maidens in her U.S. debut last month over this course and distance when she lagged to the head of the lane and then quickened like a good filly while earning a solid speed figure.  This raise to first-level allowance condition should be well within her capabilities, so let’s strongly prefer the P. D’Amato-trained Irish-bred in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics. 

Santa Anita Race 8:  Post: 4:11

3-Cash Equity (5/2)

Makes his U.S. debut for a barn that has superior stats with these types of European imports and based on his French form this Phil D’Amato-trained colt should be hard to beat at this level.  Multiple stakes-placed in good company last summer, he has put together a series of training track drills that should have him plenty fit.  With F. Prat taking the call, you know this colt is extremely live and well-meant.
