Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Friday (1-1)

Santa Anita First Race - Post:  12:30 PT 

6-Three Ay Em (3-1)

This genuine and consistent veteran owns excellent form over the Santa Anita turf course and looks capable of producing the last run in this 10-furlong first-level allowance affair for older horses. The E. Truman-trained son of New Year’s Day (that’s today!) continues to train like a happy horse, and in a race that probably will be slowly run early he should be able to secure a good second-flight position and then have every chance to seal the deal when it matters. 

Santa Anita Third Race - Post: 1:32 PT  

1-Nurse Goodbody (8-1)

Flashed ability in her debut last March when closing strongly but too late in a turf sprint over this course in a race that produced a career top speed figure. She’s been routing ever since – somewhat unsuccessfully – and today (finally) returns to a one-turn event that should (finally) bring out her best.  The daughter of Kitten’s Joy lands the good rail, adds blinkers for the first time, and has shown good spark in recent a.m. preps to have her primed for a major effort.
