Of the 13 participants in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf, seven have never set foot on the Santa Anita track in a race. Three others have circled it once, and the best finish among them was third.
If you subscribe to a home-field advantage, the options are simple. Toss out Finest City, with a place and two shows in five tries.
That leaves Gloryzapper (15-to-1), with a victory and three seconds in four outings, and Tara's Tango (8-to-1), with eight of 13 career starts at Santa Anita. The record shows two wins and four others in the money.
