Santa Anita Race 4: Post: 2:37 PT
5-Carroll Girl (3-1)
Was beaten less than a length in a similar affair last time out, gets blinkers, stretches out to nine furlongs, and faces six rivals, none of whom have ever shown any desire to be on or near the lead. This Richard Baltas-trained filly projects to be the controlling speed and given that type of trip the daughter of First Samurai should be capable of making the lead and never looking back.

4-Gritty Girl (3-1)
Looks very much like the quickest of the quick in this extended turf sprint over the flat course for starter optional claiming fillies and mares, and while she may be suspect over this trip – her only win came at five furlongs- the daughter of Street Boss may be able to relax early and then hold on late. At 3-1 on the morning line, we’ll key her in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
