Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Easter Sunday, March 27

Preview: Just an OK card with large fields hard to find. Jockey Edwin Maldonado has been on fire lately and Kent Desormeaux is in the process of changing agents.


Race 6 – SA

#8 Bandido Too (7-2): This gelding has been in the money 50% of the time on the dirt (8-of-16). He finished second at this level last time and cuts back a half-furlong. There’s a good work coming into the ce and Edwin Maldonado rides for Craig Dollase.


Race 7 – SA

#6 Justonetimebaby (4-1): This is a first-timer from the Richard Baltas barn, who is 29% first time turf and 26% in MSW races. There are two big works coming into the race and the sire Latent Heat gets 9% first time turf.


Race 10 – SA

#1 Papa Joey (6-1): We think trainer Phil D’Amato got away with one first time when he ran this gelding in maiden claimer finishing second despite a slow start. He now moves it up in class and tries turf for the first time. The sire Papa Clem is 13% first time turf and D’Amato is 24% going dirt to turf.
