Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, Oct. 1

FIRST RACE: #8 Arch of Troy (12-1)
Trainer Mark Tsagalakis is 5-for-11 in turf races. This filly broke her maiden last time in good fashion at Del Mar and might just be this good. Worth a shot.

FOURTH RACE: #8 Tweeting (6-1)
This filly has been away since early in the Del Mar meet, but trainer Bill Spawr is 19 percent first off the claim and he’s 24% with horses off a 46 to 90-day layoff. Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith takes the mount and he’s 27% with Spawr and 3-for-6 together at Santa Anita. Should be forwardly placed early in the race.

NINTH RACE: #10 Malko
Jockey Flavien Prat takes over here for trainer Vladimir Cerin. Prat will likely go to the rail and swing out on the turn and make one run down the stretch with such a poor post.

Good luck.
