Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Friday, Jan. 9

Sorry just too many things on the plate to do full selections today. Be back at it tomorrow. I wasn’t real enthused about the card. There is a carryover in the Pick 6, but believe it will be hit.

Race 3: #3 Perfect Set (4-1)

This 5-year-old gelding was favored at this level one race back at Del Mar. This son of Pleasantly Perfect hasn’t run much on dirt, but his sire liked it. Trainer Art Sherman is 26% on dirt and 24% with horses off a 31-60-day layoff. Jockey Alex Solis stays aboard.


Race 8: #3 Kiss At Midnight (7-2)

Trainer Peter Miller is 27% with debuting maiden claimers and Decarchy is a good first out sire. Jockey Elvis Trujillo is 25% with Miller and have to believe this one is live.
