Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Friday, Jan. 13

Preview: Not sure they will even race on Friday after Thursday’s rain. Heard a rumor on Wednesday horsemen wanted to cancel Thursday and Friday. Santa Anita finally canceled Thursday in the morning when the rain didn’t stop. We’ll give it a shot but nothing is in concrete. My advice handicap for the next three days.

Race 2 – SA
#2 Midvale Magic (3-1) ****
Our Eyes: Dropping into a claimer for the first time and coming down from Golden Gate. Big jockey upgrade to Rafael Bejarano. – Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 5 – SA
#5 Lady Tapit (6-1) ***
Our Eyes: This mare comes out of a key race that had produced three winners so far and has the best Brisnet Late Pace Rating by 19 points. – Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 4 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – SA
#1 Julia’s Summer (15-1) ***
Our Eyes: This 5-year-old tries many changes with blinkers on, and comes out of a key race that has produced two winners so far. – Jeff Nahill
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Good luck.
