The Angels Flight Stakes from Santa Anita Park Betting Preview – Saturday, May 1, 2021

by Cole Paganelli | May 1, 2021 |

The Angels Flight Stakes is coming up on May 1, 2021, at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. This race will be seven furlongs in distance for three-year-old fillies on a dirt course. This is race No. 5 on the day, and post time is at 5:46 P.M. The total purse for this race is $75,000. There are four entries for this race. 

Betting Preview: Missy P

Missy P heads into the Angels Flight Stakes with very little experience. With 4-5 odds, this three-year-old Filly is the betting odds favorite to win this race. Back on March 12, Missy P won his first career race at Santa Anita and is back trying to make it 2-2. This horse is fast and has shown fast workout times.

This horse has been running since March 8 at Santa Anita Park during workouts. This horse has run both three-furlong workouts, four-furlong workouts, five-furlong workouts, and even six-furlong workouts. On April 16, Missy P ran six furlongs in 1:13.40, and on April 22, this horse came back with a 1:14.20 time. Most recently, on April 28, this horse ran three furlongs in 37.20 seconds. 

Betting Preview: Astute

Astute enters the Angels Flight Stakes with betting odds of 6-5. This three-year-old Filly started his young career winning two of his first three races. Back in October of last year, this horse won his first career race at Santa Anita. This horse has not raced since December of 2020.

This horse has shown speed in recent workout times and should be one of the top horses towards the end of this race. On April 17, this horse raced on a dirt course at Santa Anita, running six furlongs in 1:14.00 seconds. On April 23, this horse followed things up with a six-furlong workout with a blazing 1:11.40 time. This horse is the fastest in this race. 

Betting Preview: Stella Noir

Stella Noir is yet another solid horse running in this race. The three-year-old Filly is coming off his first career win on March 19 at Santa Anita. This horse compares rather well to Astute but doesn’t have much to evaluate other than workout times. On April 18, this horse ran six furlongs in 1.12.60 on a dirt course at Santa Anita and has proven that he can stay with the pack. With 5-1 odds to win this race, Stella Noir is not the biggest underdog but is rather comparable to the two favorites. 

Free Betting Pick

When evaluating this race, there are four young horses that do not have much racing experience, but for the most part, have performed well in competition. Astute is the fastest horse in this race, and I fully expect this horse to run well. This group of entries is rather small, having only four horses racing, so it will be interesting to see which horse starts the strongest and if they can hold on. Roll with the blazing workout times and take Astute to win this race.
