The Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf will be the 5th race on Saturday at Santa Anita Park.  It will be run at a mile and a quarter over the turf course for fillies and mares 3-year-olds and up with a purse of $2,000,000.  Post time is scheduled for 12:43pm local time (3:43pm ET).

Santa Anita Race 5:  #1 Dank - #7 Laughing - #3 Tiz Flirtatious

Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf

The #1 Dank is the morning line favorite and she will be the post time favorite come post time.  She’ll probably even be more heavily favored than the morning line suggests.  Despite that fact, it is very difficult to overlook this imposing filly.  Her one start in North America was a winning one when she made light work of the G1 Beverly D at Arlington in August.  In doing so, she eliminated the distance question and it is quite possible that her biggest obstacle will simply be overcoming the rail.  Her second biggest obstacle may come from the #7 Laughing who hasn’t let a foe by her in over a year.  She does have a way of making things interesting, but there are no style points for margin of victory in this game.  A case can be made that all of her races have come with an easy lead, but I can’t find anyone in the field that will be dying to wrestle that lead away from her.  Until she remembers how to quit, she absolutely has to be respected.  The #3 Tiz Flirtatious established herself firmly as the first lady of the turf on the west coast this year winning four stakes races including a local G1 at this exact trip.  She is the most likely winner if the favorite finds trouble and the leader gives it up.
