Handicapping Picks for 09/29/2012

Hello all... so glad we're back racing under the gorgeous San Gabriel Mountains. There are few places we run in America that are more picturesque than Santa Anita ~ it's truly a gem.

Looking at the amazing card today, I think the very first stake is super interesting:

RACE 6: G1 Chandler for 2yo F going 1-1/16 mi.
We all know that 7-Executiveprivilege is a freak of nature. She's literally perfect (aka: unbeaten) and has proven to be gritty when it counts most (when noses are on the wire). But what has 9-Salamera done wrong? Not much against the best fillies on the east coast. Plus the "Calder shippers" angle was very successful at Del Mar and there's no reason to think it can't keep going. Also in the Chandler, I'd look at 5-Beholder and 2-Renee's Queen.

Enjoy what is sure to be a great day of handicapping!
