Gulfstream Park West, Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita early opinions for Saturday, Oct. 17

Race 3: #1 Sutton’s Smile (9-5)

This filly has no luck when it comes to post position draws until today. She drew 9, 9 and 11. Finally, here she draws inside for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer and jockey Rafael Bejarano, who are a 35% proposition together.


Race 6: #7 The Gomper (7-2)

Tough to explain this colt’s last effort but trainer Jerry Hollendorfer probably has him ready to go here. Jockey Mike Smith jumps on and he is 30% with Hollendorfer.


Race 9: #9 Of Course It Is (9-2)

It appears to be a safe bet that jockey Tiago Pereira had his choice of horses trained by Phil D’Amato and he chooses this daughter of Yes It’s True. D’Amato is putting blinkers on the 2-year-old and he is 27% with that move.


Gulfstream Park West

Race 5: #6 Pursuing Fate (4-1)

This filly has been facing tougher horses in stakes races. She takes a drop in class for trainer Mike Maker and jockey Rafael Hernandez takes over.


Race 10: #3 El Kracken (4-1)

Trainer Ramon Moya is 47% when he takes a horse from sprint-route-sprint. He claimed this 3-year-old for $10,000 and keeps him at the same level. He showed speed last time out and should do so here again.
