2022 New Year's Day Spot Play (best bet)

Santa Anita Race 7 (Grade 3 Sham Stakes)

Play #1 Mackinnon (3/1) to Win & Place

There is a good chance that #5 Degree of Risk will be scratched. American Pharoah's progeny have performed better on turf than dirt. With that said, Mackinnon is the best horse in this race. Has the highest Equibase speed figure and will be dropping in class after finishing 3rd in the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Juvenile turf. The two Baffert horses will attract plenty of betting attention. They are complete fades for me in this spot. Mackinnon has been working "lights out" on dirt with a strong and steady work tab. A huge buzz around Clockers' Corner. Mackinnon has the fastest late pace speed figure (110) in the race by a significant margin. This 3-year Colt can win on the lead or from off the pace. Hopefully, we can get 4/1 or better. Good Luck and Happy New Year!
