Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Monday, Feb. 16

Sorry no full handicap. Spent much of Sunday morning in the hospital.

Race 3: #8 Grandiose Tactics (4-1)

The one time this mare ran on a fast main track she won by 18 1/2 lengths. Yes, this competition is tougher but trainer Ron Ellis is 36% going turf to dirt and is 4-of-12 with jockey Tyler Baze.


Race 9: #4 Hazardous Dreams (turf only) (9-2)

This 4-year-old colt lost all chance at the start when he hopped and was off slow. Jockey Rafael Bejarano returns to ride and he knows the horse having ridden him two races back. Bejarano is 20% with trainer Jorge Gutierrez.
