The grade 1 Malibu will be run today at Santa Anita Park race 9 today. It should be a pretty contentious field with prices throughout. If you have a pick go with it, most likely it will pay well. There are a few horses in here that can step up to win this so if you have a better feeling take it. My picks:
KINSELLA- Top Pick. Should get a stalking trip with speed inside of him and a couple other horses that should show speed, Supreme Summit, Join in the Dance and M One Rifle. This colt has run well with 2 wins over firm turf which should translate well to this track. His two other finishes were over yielding and good turf, so maybe a couple excuses. Will have to step up in class to get it done but with Gomez and Pletcher together should be in the perfect spot to take this one.
MISREMEMBERED- Will be on the lead. Great post compared to the 12 post he had last out in the Clark H. where he finished 2nd. Cutting back in distance so he should be able to last. Morning line favorite should be pressured enough to set fast fractions, will it be enough to wear him down?
MYTHICAL POWER- Has done nothing wrong, finishing no worse than 3rd in 5 starts. Gets a hot jockey in Rosario and has been training greatover this track. Did not disappoint as the favorite in May in the Louisiana Derby. Coming off a layoff but should be able to be in a good position to get on the board.
The picks are 1,2,5
