Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, March 21

FIRST RACE: 1. Yellow Shirt, 2. Lets Get Wild, 3. Dance Costume. LONG SHOT: Dim Lights.
Tough opener and remember 3-year-olds are facing older here. Trainer Doug O’Neill has YELLOW SHIRT (8-1) and SOPHOMORIC (6-1) in here. They are both 3-year-olds but I’m choosing Yellow Shirt because she is bred to be a sprinter and she has a race under her belt. Sophomoric is making her first start and O’Neill is 1-for-47 with horses making their racing debuts on the grass while he’s 15% with horses first time on turf with at least one race under them.

SECOND RACE: 1. Dr. Dorr, 2. Oliver, 3. Route Six Six. LONG SHOT: Mystery Messenger.

THIRD RACE: 1. Sassyserb, 2. Scarlet Heat, 3. Absolutely Perfect. LONG SHOT: Oh Pretty Woman.

FOURTH RACE: 1. Golden Victory, 2. Outright, 3. Rossman. LONG SHOT: Moana Luna.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Surrender Now, 2. Bound for Nowhere, 3. Voodoo Song. LONG SHOT: Murad Khan.
