Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, Feb. 14

Preview: There are a variety of races but not a lot of horses entered. Once again 5-day weeks aren’t good in California right now.


Race 1: #3 Mischievous Bull (8-1) 

This gelding pressed the pace in his debut and then tired. Trainer Doug O’Neill is 29% going MSW to a maiden claimer. The 3-year-old had a good recent work and jockey Flavien Prat stays on.


Race 2: #8 Rim Nick (5-1)

It could be a big day for trainer Doug O’Neill as he also starts this 3-year-old. This son of J P Gusto’s (25% sire first time turf) has the top Brisnet Prime and Class numbers. He had trouble at the break last time and there is a fast work showing so think will see Rafael Bejarano go to the front on the downhill turf course which has played to speed.


Race 8: #2 Decked Out (12-1)

Trainer Keith Desormeaux has been searching for right spot for this filly. She is a daughter of Street Boss, who gets 20% winners first time on the turf. Desormeaux is 21% third off the layoff and puts his brother, Kent, back on and the jockey must go to the front.
