Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, Feb. 13

Preview: Good card with a nice stakes. Wish there were a few more entries in a few races. Tough to handicap some races where trainers have two entries because you don’t know which one is live. 129 more words

Santa Anita opinions for Friday, Feb. 12

Sorry so late. Bad card, but what are you going to do with five-day racing weeks? Maybe Santa Anita should just run four-day weeks, period, even on holiday weeks. 97 more words

Santa Anita opinions for Thursday, Feb. 11

Preview: Not a great card so tread carefully. As we said previously apprentice David Lopez is riding great and loses his bug at the end of March so look for him to ride as many horses as possible. 69 more words

Santa Anita opinions for Sunday, Feb. 7

Preview: Early first post and only eight races on the biggest football day of the year. Keep an eye on apprentice jockey David Lopez, who has been riding lights out lately and the bigger outfits are finally starting to take notice. 149 more words

Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, Feb. 6

Preview: Big Saturday card with four stakes on the program. Of course, Songbird will be everyone’s single and it’s hard to see her losing for the first time in her career. 167 more words

Brian's Derby Preps 2016: The Robert B. Lewis

 Santa Anita: The GIII, $150,000 Robert B. Lewis at 1 1/16 miles (Kentucky Derby qualifying points: 10-4-2-1)

#1 Let’s Meet in Rio (6-1): The first of two from Baffert may get ignored a bit with his more heralded stablemate Mor Spirit taking all the money, but he was a solid second in the local GIII Sham last month and drew perfectly for this two-turn run. 983 more words
