Grade 3 Santa Ana Stakes
Saturday, March 26th (4:00 PM PT)
Santa Anita Race Track (Race 7)
Play #9 Carpe Vinum (12/1) to Win, Place, and Show
Handicapping horse racing is about projecting. You can't just rely on past performances. Leading jockey Flavien Prat rode Carpe Vinum last race, and said after he wants to ride her again. Unfortunately, Prat is in Dubai. Ryan Curatolo gets a 4 pound bug and he fits CV nicely. This horse needs more distance and finally gets it. Trainer Phil D'Amato was beaming after her last work and D'Amato is red hot--- winning 22% over the past 30 days. Carpe Vinum has the third fastest late-pace speed figure of this bunch. She's sitting on a huge race. Tremendous value. You heard it here first!
