Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Monday, May 29

Race 4 – SA
#2 Sweetwater Gal (3-1) ****
There was a time when trainer John Sadler was money off long layoffs, but he is now one for his last 29. Let’s hope it’s 2 for 30. This filly is dropping in class and comes out of a key race at Del Mar last year that was produced five next out winners.
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 6 – SA
#4 Virtual Currency (5-1) TURF ONLY ***
This filly makes her debut down the hill and has been throwing bullets in the morning. Leading jockey Flavien Prat has seen enough to take the mount. That’s good enough for me.
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – SA
#5 Elwood J (6-1) TURF ONLY ****
We know jockey Mike Smith only rides when he wants to and he takes this mount for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer (28% with Smith). Has speed and the price is right.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX 1-4-9-11 with 5.

Good luck.
