The only horse that did not run inPro Race Consultants Review the Daisycutter is Tanda, who is coming off a win in the Grade 3 Redondo Beach over the main track at Del Mar. Tanda does have experience down the hill at Santa Anita having won twice in four starts. She finished fourth behind Separate Forest and Unzip Me in April, but that was her first start off a layoff of ten months.
Should Unzip Me not want the lead then Separate Forest has a shot to wire the field. She used those same tactics earlier in the year when she won three times in four starts over the course. She has not won since then, but could be best returning to her favorite course.
Broken Dreams and Givine are the threats from off-the-pace with Broken Dreams the preferred choice. Broken Dreams was making a late run in the Daisycutter, but five furlongs is way too short for her late kick. She has run twice on the downhill turf course with two second place finishes.
First post for Friday at Santa Anita horse racing is 4:00 ET with the Senator Maddy off at 5:02. Scheduled as race three the Maddy is part of the Player's Pick-5, which starts with the first race of the day.
