Race Six
Scheduled local post time 3:37 pm PT

Selection: Soi Phet, the 5 horse:

The TFUS Pace Projector puts Soi Phet on a clear early lead in a race that it projects as favoring speed. This is often a potent combination, but when one is talking about a horse who has strong speed figures, the combination becomes even more potent. And Soi Phet has strong speed figures. The 112 that he just ran over this racetrack would hit very hard in this field, and he ran it in a Grade 1 in which he lost some ground on the turns and was up against horses who are vastly more talented than he. It was a game effort. If he can replicate it today at this lower altitude, he will be hard to handle, and if he can get actually obtain the clear early lead that the Pace Projector shows him having, his chances of replicating the figure go way up.

The Santa Anita racing surface has been quite hospitable to early speed at this distance lately. Let’s hope that trend holds today. Soi Phet is our selection.
