Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, Jan. 2

Race 2: #2 Iambic (6-1)

Trainer Graham Motion has sent a string west this winter. This colt had no early speed in his turf debut in New York, but has the best late pace rating from Brisnet. Jockey Drayden Van Dyke knows how to ride this turf course.


Race 6: #4 Pulling G’s (5-1)

This gelding made his stakes debut with a fourth in the Fall Highweight at Aqueduct for trainer John Shirreffs, who returns home for the winter. There is a ton of speed in here which should set it up for jockey Victor Espinoza and this 6-year-old.


Race 9: #5 Architop (9-2)

This gelding has the top early Brisnet pace rating and drops to his lowest lever for trainer Richard Mandella, who is 32% third off the layoff and 25% with the addition of blinkers.
