Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Saturday (10-30)

Santa Anita Race 7:  Post: 3:37 PT 

2-Head Start (5/2)

Showed a bit of ability in a pair of maiden sprints at Indiana Downs last summer, her best effort coming in her debut in a dirt dash in which she finished a solid runner-up after pressing the pace throughout. A subsequent grass sprint when leaving as the 6/5 favorite was disappointing, so she shows up in California for new trainer M. Glatt in a $50,000 maiden claimer that looks well within her abilities.  A recent gate workout (4f, :47.3hg) was visually pleasing, so at or near her  5/2 morning line price she should offer good wagering value.

Santa Anita Race 8:  Post: 4:08 PT

8-Zero Tolerance (3-1)

Was especially impressive winning the Unzip Me S. sprinting on grass earlier this month, her second straight victory after being nosed out in her debut. The P. Miller-trained daughter of Mizzen Mast tries two-turns for the first time and on pedigree should get the trip, though from her outside draw she’ll need to get over and secure a decent early position to avoid losing ground. We’ll gamble that she’ll be able to duplicate her strong sprint form around two turns and play her at or around 3-1 in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
