Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, Feb. 21

Preview: Not a great card by any means. Here’s hoping there are some prices to be found. Apprentice jockey David Lopez has missed a week after an injury. No word when he will be back but he is named on horses.


Race 5: #9 Royal Banker (turf only) (12-1) 

They were off the turf on Friday so there should be some give in course. This gelding has a win over a good course so hope for some softened grass. The 5-year-old has some good works for his return and trainer Doug O’Neill is 20% sprint to route.


Race 6: #7 Hot Lightning (8-1)

This gelding just won against tougher go longer and trainer Charles Treece is 43% when he drops off a win. Mario Gutierrez keeps the mount and there is no doubt what he will do out of the gate, try to go to the front.
