Xpressbet analyst Jeff Siegel offers his top plays on Fridays and Saturdays.

SANTA ANITA RACE 4: Post: 2:41 PT 

6-Pretty Saylee (2-1)

Drawn comfortably outside and sporting the always-dangerous blinkers off angle, this daughter of Shackleford easily projects as the lone speed. In a field with suspect closers, she’ll have every chance to keep on going. Freshened since early August and showing a bullet half-mile drill (:47 2/5, fastest of 65) since raced, the Luis Mendez-trained filly is a logical rolling exotic single and play in the win pool.

SANTA ANITA RACE 8:  Post: 4:44 PT 

3-Posterize (2-1)

In his second start since being claimed for $25,000 at Del Mar, this Doug O’Neill-trained gelding drops a notch below his purchase level after finishing third in a race that was marked by torrid early fractions. The pace flow projects to be considerably softer today and a solid five furlong workout last week in addition to the monumental jockey switch to Flavien Prat should have him set for a strong effort over a track that has produced all three of his career victories.
