Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, March 28

Race 3: #4 Hit a Homerun (8-1)

I don’t know if this 3-year-old is good enough, but this much I do know: trainer Steve Miyadi has won with at least two first-timers in recent weeks at Santa Anita and owners Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC bred this colt and they place their horses in reasonable spots.

Race 5: #8 Codacious (9-5)

This filly has the top Beyer Speed Figure of thos who have run so it’s her against any of the first-timers. She has shown speed each time and now trainer Cliff Sise shortens her up again. Oh, yeah, he gets a jockey named Rafael Bejarano to ride.

Los Alamitos Race Course opinions for Friday, Sept. 12

Race 1: #1 Ninnavee (6-1)

This 3-year-old filly has the top last race Beyer Speed Figure, granted it was at Ferndale, but trainer Quinn Howey ships down and expects this one to go straight to the lead from the rail. Felipe Martinez jumps on for the mount.

Race 3: #6 Tribal Mystery Man (7-2)

Trainer Robertino Diodoro does well in the lower maiden claiming and claiming ranks. He won at LRC with tow of his first three starters. This 3-year-old gelding had a ton of trouble in his last race at Del Mar, throw it out and he’s among the favorites. Barn rider Fernando Perez keeps the mount.
