Jeff Nahill’s Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, Dec. 26 (Opening day, first post 11 a.m.)

NOTE: With the rain, I have no idea what the track will do with the turf races. I have a feeling the first race will be off and the races 6 1/2 furlongs down the hill are in danger, too. I think the stakes races will stay on the turf, but check changes.

OK SO OFF THE TURF TODAY AND YOU CAN THROW OUT MY PICKS IN THE GRASS RACES. I WILL ONLY HANDICAP THE DIRT RACES FOR MONDAY AND EVEN THEN IT COULD BE MUDDY OR SLOPPY WITH MORE RAIN EXPECTED.


FIRST RACE (Turf only): 7-11-12-5

SECOND RACE: 3-1-5-6

THIRD RACE: 1-7-6-2You will notice a new trainer’s name in Ruben Alvarado. He has taken over Peter Miller’s barn, or so Miller says, so treat as if Miller is still training, but also watch how this barn goes.

FOURTH RACE: 6-1-5-3

FIFTH RACE: 6-4-2-1

SIXTH RACE: 4-2-5-6 (BEST BET)

SEVENTH RACE: 9-7-8-3

EIGHTH RACE: 4-3-5-1

NINTH RACE: 7-1-3-5

10TH RACE: 5-7-4-3

11TH RACE: 11-5-4-7 

Good luck. Stay safe.
