Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Saturday (2-26-22)

Santa Anita Race 4 – Post time: 2:05 PT

1-Memes (4-1)

Forecast: This son of Practical Joke finished far back in a two-turn grass affair last month with a less-than-ideal trip, but in this seven furlong main track affair the P. Eurton-trained sophomore should be able to show his best stuff.  A recent gate work caught the eye, so with the addition of bug boy D. Herrera and the weight break that goes with it, he’ll offer good wagering value at 4-1 on the morning line both in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics. 

Santa Anita Race 8 – Post time: 4:10 PT

5-Set Sail (5/2)

Has done everything right in the morning and looks plenty fit and ready to score at first asking in this seven furlong affair for older maidens.  The son of Malibu Moon has good speed, so if he leaves with his field and avoids trouble, he certainly has the talent to handle this assignment.  Listed at 5/2 on the morning line, the R. Mandella-trained sophomore offers strong wagering value at or near that price.
