Santa Anita Opening Day best bets (12/26/21)

Race 6 (Grade 2 San Antonio) Post time: 1:40 PT

Play #5 Eight Rings (4/1) to Win and Place

Heavy rain this past week and overnight in Arcadia, CA, This means you will want to favor horses with early speed. Eight Rings needs the lead and should get it with a clean start. Bob Baffert and John Velazquez win 41% together, finish in-the-money 70%, while producing a STRONG +28% return on investment (ROI).

Place: #4 Hot Rod Charlie (6/5)

Show: #2 Express Train (7/2)

Race 11 (Grade 1 American Oaks) Post time: 4:20 PT

Play #4 Nicest (8/1) to Win, Place, and Show

Going Global is 4-for-4 at Santa Anita and will be a short price around 1/1. I see value in this 3-year old Filly by American Pharoah, trained by Michael McCarthy. The Ireland bred should appreciate the softer turf. I think the turf course will be yielding or soft, especially early in the day. It's going to be a cold day (by So. Cal standards) so I don't think the track will dry quickly. Heavy rain expected overnight. Only 54 degrees is the forecast high temp in Arcadia. Nicest has the fastest late-pace speed figure in the race. Along with his front-running style should set up "Nicely" for Nicest. Gate to wire. Huge Value!

Place: #5 Going Global (6/5)

Show: #1 Fluffy Socks (3/1)
