Preview: I’m only doing the dirt races for now. There is suppose to overnight rain so the turf races certainly seem to in jeopardy on the card.
UPDATE: Looks like rain hasn’t hit yet and Santa Anita lists turf as firm as of 10:10 a.m. That could change. Turf race selections are for grass only and we’ve lost a couple of top horses due to scratches already on the dirt.
