Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Friday, March 11

Preview: Hope everyone likes sprint races because there are no two turn races on the card. Rafael Bejarano has finally overtaken Santiago Gonzalez as the top jockey on the dirt with 35 wins to 34 for Gonzalez. They are followed on the main track by Flavien Prat (21-117), Edwin Maldonado (21-110) and apprentice David Lopez (19-101).


Race 6: #6 Jamie Said No (8-1) (turf only)

Love the sire Cape Blanco on the turf and think his numbers will only get stronger. This colt had all kinds of trouble in debut, but trainer Doug O’Neill is 20% with second-time starters. Also jockey Mario Gutierrez jumps on.


Race 7: #3 Warrensdollarsigns (4-1) 

This mare just won over the track drops in class. Trainer Steve Miyadi is 6-for-12 when he drops off a win. Apprentice David Lopez jumps on and he is 18% with Miyadi.


Race 9: #6 Easy Going Evening (5-2) 

 This filly has the top Brisnet Prime rating and drops off to an all-time low. Trainer Phil D’Amato is 23% with maiden claimers an the 3-year-old gets a big jock switch from an apprentice to speed jockey Edwin Maldonado.
