Santa Anita opinions for Thursday, April 4

PREVIEW: OK, I got a little bored so here are some picks. However, I didn’t do the first or eighth races since Santa Anita is changing the surface on the first and the distance on the eighth. As for Senator Feinstein’s grandstanding letter this week to the CHRB, let me ask how much has PETA given to her over the years? It sure sounded like a PETA press release. PETA needs to worry about its own house. As far as Feinstein is concerned I suggest you email her office and tell her to mind her own business. When was the last time she was at Santa Anita, if ever? When has she been to any track? When has she ever been on the backstretch to talk to workers back there?
Just a word of warning I won’t have picks for Friday. Thursday is too busy. I hope to have picks for Saturday. Good luck.

SECOND RACE: 1. Monydontspenitself, 2. Baby Bear’s Soup, 3.Run Macho Run. LONG SHOT: Little Scotty.

THIRD RACE: 1. Drink, 2. Railman, 3. Palaleo. LONG SHOT: Red Valor.

FOURTH RACE: 1. Keystone Field, 2. Lomu, 3. T Bones Trick. LONG SHOT: Hackberry.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Smart Rachel, 2. Cinnamon Twist, 3. Party Hostess. LONG SHOT: Todos Santos.

SIXTH RACE: 1. Shining Through, 2. Vantastic, 3. Urban Light. LONG SHOT: Order and Law.

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Sea’s Journey, 2. Friday’s At Shady, 3. Pig Iron. LONG SHOT: Soul Owner.
