Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Friday, Jan. 6

Preview: Don’t know what condition the track will be in with rain forecast for most of the weekend. I’m not even going to look at the grass races because I highly doubt they will be running on the green.

Race 2 – SA
#3 Sassy Ashley (7-2) ****
Our Eyes: Throw out that last race because this filly wants to go two turns and the connections got bamboozled by the racing office to run 6 furlongs. She has the top Prime and Class numbers from Brisnet so look for a good effort. – Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 5 – SA
#1 Delitefull Lady (7-2) ***
Our Eyes: This filly must beat a Peter Miller second-timer and a $975,000 purchase by Bob Baffert, but think she can do it with a switch to jockey Rafael Bejarano. – Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 4 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – SA
#7 Run Macho Run (7-2) *****
Our Eyes: Love this gelding. Just broke his maiden at Del Mar, has good speed and comes out of a key race with two winners so far. Should like the mud if it comes up that way. – Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 5 units to win, 7 units to place and 10 units to show.
