Results, Saturday Santa Anita Race 9 — won $900

imgres9When the gate sprang open on Dec. 13, debuter Sleep Tight had a problem and broke slowly to lose several lengths. She didn’t quit, though, making a nice run through the lane to dead-heat for second. 

Today, she was stretching out from 6 furlongs to 7 and once I saw her break well, I knew I was in good shape. 

The race set up with #8 Silent Smoke, an 11-to-1 shot, setting the pace while being followed by favorite #10 Sunny Peace and #2 Sleep Tight.  But at the top of the stretch, Sleep Tight had nowhere to run, as she was being blocked by the pace setters who ran side-by-side.

Finally, jockey Michael Baze angled her out for room and Sleep Tight ran like she was shot out of a cannon. The race was never in doubt late, as she won by 2-1/2 lengths to #11 Tiz Salsa, who closed well.

I wagered $300 on Sleep Tight, who closed at 3/1 odds.
