Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Saturday (2-6)

Santa Anita – Race 1 Post time: 12:00 PT

5-Ekklesia (5/2)

A close fourth in a hot race last month, the son of Raison d’Etat catches a field without much early speed and projects to be on or near the lead throughout.  A winner over this main oval during the fall season, the Peter Eurton-trained colt retains Flavien Prat, shows a healthy, steady series of workouts since raced, and based on the anticipated race flow shouldn’t have any trouble getting the trip. There’s value at or near his morning line of 5/2 in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.

Santa Anita – Race 4 Post time: 1:36 PT

2-Masteroffoxhounds (5/2)

Fresh from a romping win in a mini-marathon at Del Mar in November against a lesser group, this ex-Irish performer has trained superbly in the interim for Richard Baltas and seems set to launch an outstanding four-year-old campaign. The son of War Front should be within range of the likely pace-setter (and logical favorite) Acclimate to the top of the lane and then have dead aim and every chance when asked for best. At 5/2 on the morning line we’ll put ‘Hounds on top and hook him with Acclimate in a strong exacta box.
