G2 Buena Vista S. (02/20/21)

Santa Anita, Race 7

8 Furlongs, Turf

#2 Mucho Unusual 7/2

Exits a win at today's distance that came back weak with a 64/71 with best Final Figures coming in at the longer distances. Runner could likely get covered up from the 2 post in this spot and need to work a trip late here. Better odds are usually needed to root on this type of runner.

#3 Warren's Showtime 5/1

Always in there trying, she has only missed the board once in 11 career turf spins. She gets back to her correct distance today after being left with a bit much to do late sprinting last out. Since the PLOW/REV combo last summer has put up the top Final Figure of the field for Del Mar mile spins and the Santa Anita form has been right there with these as well. Could get an idea setup today.

#4 Nasty 6/1

Strong performance holding the front last out on a 77/77 as the last three at the half mile call in that race finished up into the top half late. Should find it tougher establishing the same lead today against these and enters as the lightest raced of the bunch with minimal experience passing horses if needed.

#5 Red Lark 8/1

Triggered the TDL last out when trying longest of career so good look to properly adapt to that situation, but tall order to now set down harder for a flat mile from that move sitting at the bottom of the Average 4F Figure ranks.

#8 Charmaine's Mia 3/1

Finished up that Santa Anita sprint 6 points better than today's rivals' attempts to sprint here. That's a lot of room to relax and distribute her energy into completing the stretchout in distance. She asserted herself on a very good field last out and should have no problem making the flat mile off good-looking workouts as of recent.

#10 Heathers Grey 20/1

One of three to set a 78 Final Figure going a flat mile on this track. Needs to bring her very best stepping up to tougher here, but the odds offered are certainly there.
