Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Friday, May 26

Race 3 – SA
#8 Conquest Sabre Cat (4-1) TURF ONLY ****

The rails will be at 30 feet on the turf course which usually means speed will be tough and closer will have a hard time in the stretch. This gelding has speed and Flavien Prat takes over in the saddle.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 5 – SA
#4 True Valor (3-1) ****

This colt makes his debut in SoCal after facing tougher last year at Saratoga, Churchill Downs and Keeneland. Is not up for sale today coming off the layoff but should fit at the level. Trainer Keith Desormeaux puts blinkers on, maybe to keep his mind on business.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – SA
#9 Rafter One (5-1) TURF ONLY ****

This colt drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and trainer Mike Pender is 27% with that move. Jockey Rafael Bejarano jumps which is a big upgrade in my mind on the grass.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Good luck.
