Invicibella came back two races later to defeat Storming Lady by a half length in a $39,000 event. However, she couldn’t keep it going in her most recent attempt, showing 3rd at Santa Anita Park on October 16 for a $36,000 purse.

Fantasy Heat is 4 for 11 in her career, finishing 2nd, 2nd, 1st in her previous three attempts. She placed 2nd on September 25 in a Holly Hundy by a half length for a $59,000 purse.

Fantasy Heat responded with a neck win in a $74,000 event on August 15. Down all the way to $42,000 against this field, Fantasy Heat has to be the horse to beat.

In the sixth race at Santa Anita, there’s 6 furlongs of racing on the dirt. Joe Don Looney and Ascot Storm are going to run a close race. Both should be there at the wire jostling.

Joe Don Looney is 3 for 10 with a winning performance on August 12 in a $39,000 event. That was a win over Catbernay by a half length.

Joe Don Looney placed 2nd behind Baby Gronk by a neck for a $49,000 event on September 10. That was a good effort from Joe Don Looney, and another like that is going to put him close at the wire.

Ascot Storm is 2 for 5 in his career, and has finished 1st, 3rd, 8th, 6th, 1st in five attempts. He opened with a 4 ¾ length win over Finding Silver in a $55,000 race.

Then in his most recent, Ascot Storm defeated Diva’s Finale by 5 ¼ lengths in a $33,000 purse. Ascot Storm should have the upper hand on this field.

The Bet
(1) ASCOT STORM

Race 8

(1) Eda
-125 (4/5)
(2) Lady T
+400 (4/1)
(3) Cadillac Margarita
+3000 (30/1)
(4) Benedict Canyon
+400 (4/1)
(5) Shes Bout A Mover
+250 (5/2)

Post Time: 4:40 p.m. PST
Distance:6 Furlongs
Purse:$75,000

Race 8 covers 7 furlongs for a $75,000 purse. Benedict Canyon and Eda should have the best chance of doing in Sunday.

Benedict Canyon has finished 3rd and 1st in two races. She showed 3rd in a $70,000 event as a rookie on August 21.

Benedict Canyon came back with a win by a nose for a $70,000 prize on September 5. Look for her to go well, but Eda should provide a lot of pressure.

Eda has finished 1st, 2nd, 5th in three attempts. The filly won as a first-time runner on June 19 for a $61,000 purse.

Eda has been stakes racing since then, as the $550,000 Bob Baffert trainee placed 2nd in the $200,000 Sorrento Stakes (Gr. 2), and then 5th on September 5 in the $300,000 Del Mar Debutante Stakes (Gr. 1).

That was too tough, but down to a $75,000 assignment, Eda must get respect in this one.
