Kurt Hoover’s Santa Anita Best Bets for Friday, Oct. 22 (Races: 3 & 5)

Kurt’s second-time starter selection was still “very green” last time out and did not start the race well but finished up strong.

Kurt is now looking for his selection to build off that performance.

“She’s run against much better, I think, in her last couple starts.”

Kurt is looking for the class drop to put his selection over the top.
