Santa Anita Race 6:  #2 Book Review - #11 Groupie Doll - #8 Dance to Bristol

Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint

The #2 Book Review hasn’t raced since the G1 Ballerina at Saratoga in August, but she’s proven quite capable of firing fresh in the past.  That last effort only netted her a runner-up finish, but it might have been good enough to win any other day.  She made up good ground on a track that wasn’t playing kind to that and just couldn’t get by a very good rival that did have the benefit of a slightly better trip.  She loves this distance and has done well at this track.  The morning line would have us believe that plenty of value is there as well.  The #11 Groupie Doll is the defending champ, the deserving favorite, and her best form towers over this field.  Whether or not she can run one of those races we got used to last year remains to be seen, but there will be plenty of speed in there for her to run at, so if she’s still got it, she’ll have every chance to show it.  The #8 Dance to Bristol is the rival that held off Book Review in the Ballerina.  Since then, she had her 7-race win streak snapped, but she still hasn’t finished out of the money in 22 months and has never finished worse than second at this distance.  The shape of the race should suit her perfectly as the speed horses all have questions to answer while dealing with each other.
