Saturday Santa Anita Recap: Dec 31
Sloppy (sealed) main track and two races were taken off the turf
course. Four wire-to-wire winners during the first half of the card (8f,
6f, 6.5f, 9f). The G1 American Oaks was the only race left on the turf
course (labeled good) and it was taken by late runner Decked Out (rail at 20 feet).
Kent Desormeaux, Corey Nakatani, and Martin Pedroza each booted home a pair.
Saturday’s suggested Early Pick 4 tickets from Santa Anita Park yielded one Primary winner (St. Joe Bay) and one Secondary winner (Solid Wager). Both of my winners dead-heated in the G3 Midnight Lute and Peter Miller saddled both.
