Exacta: Box 2,3,7

Small But Mighty is 3 for 9 this year, the most recent win coming last out by 4 ½ lengths here at Santa Anita, her 3rd win from her last 4 races, all the wins coming since the claim by Mitchell. Confidently raised in class from 7K to 12,500, it must be noted that the horse she beat last out came back to win at 21-1 on Sunday so she’s got a huge shot of winning her 2nd in a row as she did earlier this summer.

Angel of Mystery led by 3 lengths in the stretch last out and got nailed by a head on the wire over the track on 10/14, at 1 1/16 miles, so on the cut back to 7 furlongs she’s got a reasonable shot of being part of the exacta at the very least as she’s now been in five of six races this year.

Dave’s Revenge missed by a head at 6 ½ furlongs at the level over the track last out on 10/10, her 2nd runner-up effort in a row. Although she’s winless in 9 races this year she’s finished 2nd three times and like Angel of Mystery has a big shot to be part of the exacta once again, with a small shot to win if she improves off that last effort.
