Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Friday (3-19)

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet analyst)

Golden Gate – Third Race – Post time: 2:28 PT

1-In the Wind (7/2)

The even money morning line favorite Made In Karoo will be tough to beat, so let’s go for a better price with this lightly-raced Southern California shipper. The daughter of Big Blue Kitten showed some ability in her debut over the all-weather surface at Turfway Park last month and then was out of her element when badly overmatched in straight maiden company at Santa Anita. This maiden $8,000 claiming field should be within her range, and from her favorable rail draw she’s guaranteed a good ground-saving trip. If she’s going to be any kind of race horse, this would be a good place to show it, so at 7/2 on the morning line she offers a bit of gamble in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.

Santa Anita – Eighth Race – Post time: 4:53 PT

3-Alexander’s Dream (8-1)

Sophomore maiden finally gets a chance to stretch out around two turns and we suspect the Jeff Bonde-trained colt will make the most of the opportunity.  Bred for turf and displaying improvement in his first try on the sod last month, he finished with interest to be a good third while earning by far a career top speed figure. He’s worked well since so another forward move is likely, and projects to draft into a comfortable second flight, ground-saving position and then have every chance.  There’s good long shot value here at anywhere near his  8-1 on the morning line.
