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.
