No Guts, No Glory

With so much attention given the Gulfstream portion of the Sunshine Millions program this Saturday, we're going to take a rare look at Santa Anita and one of the Luck Pick 6 races, the Sensational Star going 6-1/2 furlongs down the Hillside turf course. We're taking a chance and looking for value with Compari vs. everyone's favorite Cal-bred Coracortado.

That sure to be odds on choice is coming off a monstrous effort under similar conditions and now comes back on relatively short rest beneath 123 pounds. Compari, back at his best distance on his favorite course, turns bac from a pace setting try at one mile and gets a switch to Mike Smith here. We're expecting a change of tactics and for Compari to get first run on the talented favorite.

Taking Compari to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with Coracortado.

Running Totals: (1014) 312-202-147 Total Dollar Return: $2,1563.80 [win selections only]
