Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Sunday.
Santa Anita Race 1
#8 Queen of Pompeii (3-1 ML)
First-time starters have struggled terribly this meet in turf sprints (3-80 coming into this week), and in a race loaded with them, the lean to experienced horses should be fruitful. Queen of Pompeii hasn't raced this year and comes off a long layoff, but that's been a highly profitable move for trainer Carla Gaines and turf sprinters overall this meet. Win bet.
Santa Anita Race 4
#4 Balladeer (3-1 ML)
Likely favorite Got Thunder has been defeated all 4 times as the public choice, and champion Beholder's baby QB One likely will be overbet off a third-place finish last time out. Perhaps overlooked will be Balladeer, a colt bred for distance and whose dirt races have been promising. Win bet.
