Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, May 21

Preview: I hope some of you hit Ransom he Moon at $9.80 or Wood Machine $21.80 on Saturday. In the Preakness, I had the right idea of a long shot in this crop but the wrong horse (I won’t talk about the ride).

Race 3 – SA
#5 Utana (8-5) ****

Might be a single in the Pick 5. The daughter of Curlin goes two turns for the first time and she is bred for it. Trainer John Shirreffs is 23% with first time routers.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 4 – SA
#6 Go for Bear (6-1) ****

Been away for 2 months. Drops to lowest level ever. Big jock switch to Rafael Bejarano. Worth it at the price..
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX 1-2-4-5 with 6.

Race 7 – SA
#3 Moon Kitty (7-2) ****
Has shown speed against MSW types and drops into the maiden claimer for the first time. Comes out of key race with two next out winners and trainer Peter Miller is on fire.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – SA
#4 Stringent (8-1) ****

Trainer David Hofmans goes back to the dirt with this gelding and he has won twice over the surface. A couple of big works showing.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX 3-5-6 with 4.

Good luck.
