Results, Santa Anita Saturday Race 5 — won $1,080

see-full-size-image1In this 10-horse field, five of the colts were between 5-to-2 and 6-to-1, which says to me that the public really couldn’t tell who the best horse was.

But soon after the race began, it became increasingly clear that #4 Wall Street Wonder towered over this field and may very well be a stakes horse. The Bob Baffert-trained second-time starter immediately shot to a clear lead, then really poured it on in the stretch to win by 5-1/4 lengths.

I bet $400 on Wall Street Wonder, and was eyeballing first-timers #2 Vanquest and #6 Bridging, but neither fell into the 10/1 to 19/1 odds range that I was looking for.
