Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Friday (12-31-21)

Sixth Race – Santa Anita.  Post time:  3:00 PT

6-Got Thunder (6/5)

After finishing an excellent runner-up in a strong maiden sprint at Del Mar and working very well since that race, this highly-promising J. Sadler-trained juvenile should be a heavy choice to graduate in this maiden dash.  The son of Arrogate was used hard on the rail in that outing last month and today lands the cozy outside post while retaining F. Prat.  Simply stated, he’s the most probable winner on the program.

Eighth Race – Santa Anita.  Post time: 4:00 PT

5-Took Charge (2-1)

Earned a career top speed figure when winning a first-level allowance sprint at Del Mar last month and has trained in spectacular fashion since.  The R. Baltas-trained gelding looks more than capable of repeating on the raise, especially in a race that lacks his kind of early speed.  Let’s make him a good play in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
