The first G-1 takes the stage and the price of poker just went up. When you have graded company at $2 million bones at stake, you can bet they all will trying. They didn’t get this far being a nobody.

In this heat, I like Stardom Bound. She has been tough out West, and her sire Tapit should fit the weeds. She likes the Santa Anita surface, and will set up perfectly for a last to first style. This will be exciting down the lane, and this Canadian should give us our monies worth.  If you get 2-1, it will be value.

Another worth a good look is: C.S. Silk. Her sire Medaglia D’ Oro wins 19% with first time turfers. She should be stalking, and after the victory in the Arlington Washington, she should be ready to fire. Dale Romans is a quiet winner. You won’t know he is there until he gets in the winners circle.

Rounding out my preview is: Persistently. Alan Garcia is named, and this guy can flat out ride. Her dam fires 100% winners as babies and should make a belated run to make the crowd jump. Her sire wins 13% of the time with turf first timers, and she had to alter course twice in her last race.
