Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, Dec. 31

FIRST RACE: 1. Rocket Heat, 2. Fly to Mars, 3. El Tovar. LONG SHOT: Trifecta.

SECOND RACE: 1. Matriculate, 2. Bear Skinned, 3. Top Brass. LONG SHOT: Chief of Staff.

THIRD RACE: 1. Green With Eddie, 2. True Valor, 3. Skeleton Pass. LONG SHOT: Thorpe d’Oro.

FOURTH RACE: 1. Tiffany Diamond, 2. Crimsoned N Clover, 3. Yalla. LONG SHOT: Sonnet’s Joy
This is a bad race. Maiden claiming $20,000. Anything can happen. You don’t know how close I came to picking 50-1 long shot Sonnet’s Joy. Now hear me out on this. Trainer Kenneth Nettles is 29% going from route to sprint and 38% going sprint-route-sprint so don’t be afraid to put $2 to win on her.
