Santa Anita 9 | 8:18 pm ET Maiden Special Weight for 3&Up F&M going 1 mi (T)

The last race on the card Sunday may be the best betting race, a full field of 12 run a mile on the turf and contention runs deep. FABLE did not get the best of the draw in post 10 and his trainer is not known for his turf runners, but the daughter of English Channel is worth a look and a bet at long odds. FABLE was a good second in her career debut on the turf at Fair Grounds this winter then backed that up with a second place on the main track in February, both times losing to a horse that won its next start. Brice Blanc in the irons and he can bring them home at a price. SERENE MELODY had run five races to start her career and was never worse than two length off at the half mile pole until last month when she was taken off the pace and finished well, beat just under two lengths. She should get some pace to run into with KRISTINITE the most likely to lead them by the wire the first time. She stretches out from a sprint down the hill and will take them as far as she can. Others to consider for any trifecta or superfecta wager are OEIGHTER, SWEET AS A ROSE and SMART TYPICAL. Tough race.
