Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita early opinions for Sunday, March 8

Working the desk last night and time change have done me in for full picks today. Check me out on twitter @Jeff_Nahill to see if I like anything else earlier on the card. Thanks for reading.


Race 6: #8 Pay the Fine (8-1)

The son of Square Eddie showed speed and faded in his debut last month. He should only improve off that effort and the Doug O’Neill barn seems to be heating up. Jockey Elvis Trujillo takes the mount.


Race 9: #1 Paythebank (12-1)

Trainer Eric Kruljac sends this gelding around two turns off a run down the hill. He put a good work into the son of Lemon Drop Kid (fastest of 138) and drops into a maiden claimer for the first time.
