The final week of racing at Santa Anita begins with a decent Wednesday program that offers the potential for profit with various rolling exotics. The opener looks fairly competitive but we’ll zero in on #5 Megastar and #6 Royal F J in this maiden turf event. Megastar, second in his last pair, seems best when held up early and allowed to run late and should like this nine furlong trip. Royal F J keeps running second – he’s finished in the runner up slot five straight times – and while he may lack a winning punch he at least keeps trying and might get lucky eventually, maybe even today.
