Santa Anita opinions for Thursday, Oct. 19

FIRST RACE: #2 Sassy Ashley (5-1)
Owner Jeff Bloom struck last week at odds of 20-1. Don’t think he’ll get that here, but this filly obviously likes this track the best with a 4-1-1-1 record. Go Back three races and she almost won at this level on this track going this distance. Bingo.

FOURTH RACE: #9 Streak of Luck (3-1)
This filly might be facing some tough first-timers in here but she has the experience and is dropping from a state-bred MSW to a maiden claimer. She is also coming out of a key race that has produced three next out winners.

SEVENTH RACE: #7 Aflewency (8-1)
Big jockey switch on the turf here are Hall of Famer Gary Stevens takes over for apprentice Evin Roman. This filly broke her maiden down the hill with Stevens in the irons and he is 3-for-10 with trainer Neil French. Look for an improved effort in this spot.

Good luck.
