Santa Anita // 05-MAR

How about one more race card on this fine Saturday? Sounds great to us! We're finishing #SaturdayAtTheTrack down in Southern California watching the ponies at Santa Anita Park. Like Gulfstream and Aqueduct today, Santa Anita has plenty of action you are not going to want to miss: 11 races, lots of runners and 6 stakes - all graded:

Stakes Schedule:

R4: $200K San Carlos (GII)

R5: $200K Buena Vista (GII-T)

R6: $400K San Felipe (GII) / Kentucky Derby Prep

R9: $500K Beholder Mile (GI)

R10: $500K Frank E. Kilroe Mile (GI-T)

R11: $650K Santa Anita Handicap (GI) #BigCap Day

Make sure to check out Race 6 - San Felipe Stakes - as it is a Kentucky Derby Prep race with Derby points awarded to the top four finishers - 50-20-10-5, respectively. Will Cabo Spirit be able to add to his 4 points and climb the Derby leader board? We'll have to watch to find out!

Running conditions are looking great with firm turf, a fast track and temperatures right around 80 with partly cloudy skies. That sounds like Springs Break weather to us!

Need help pickin' winners? We've got you covered! Our #LundinLine top picks and best bets are below in this post. We use them to help narrow down the field while we're puttin' our tickets together. We also use it to help build our stables when playin' on the StableDuel App. They've got a $100 at Santa Anita today, so check it out if you're interested. TVG is also running a Money Back Special today for select races for even more changes to win! Check app for details. First post is coming up at Noon Pacific, so don't be late! You know what to do.

Let's check out today's Best Value Horse (BVH). What's our BVH, you ask? Our Best Value Horse is probably not going off as the favorite and is unlikely to go off with the longest odds. Simply put - our Best Value Horse is a runner our very own @TSDaveW likes with morning line odds around 7-1. This will be a horse that should be competitive, and if it hits, you'll be glad you played it! Odd, of course, change throughout the day, however, we're lookin' at Morning Line Odds when making these picks.

BVH for Santa Anita Park

Race #10 / $500K Grade I Frank E. Kilroe Stakes / 1 Mile on Turf / 4 y.0. & up

Beyond Brilliant (#3)

Twirling Candy / Summer On The Lawn

M/L: 8/1

Beyond Brilliant held off Cathkin Peak en route to a victory in the $400K Grade I Hollywood Derby on November 27th on the turf at Del Mar. The race also gave this 4 year old colt (by Twirling Candy) his highest Equibase speed of 108. He then followed that up with another strong and gamely performance in the $200K Grade II Santa Anita Mathis Mile on December 26th, finishing 2nd by a 1/2 length to Law Professor. Beyond Brilliant also earned an impressive 106 Equibase speed during that race. Drawing the 3 post today should allow Victor Espinoza to put him at or close to his preferred lead position. Starting the day off with 8/1 odds, Beyond Brilliant (#3) is today's Best Value Horse on today's card at Santa Anita Park. Best of Luck!
