Jeff Siegel's Best Bets for Saturday (3-12-22)

By Jeff Siegel  (Xpressbet analyst)

Santa Anita Race 3:  Post time: 1:30 PT

6-Carroll Girl (5/2)

Shows two strong recent races over the Santa Anita turf course, most recently when finishing a solid second at this same one-mile distance in a race that earned a sharp speed figure.  A repeat of that performance today should be good enough, and with F. Prat staying aboard and a healthy recent series of works at San Luis Rey Downs is another positive factor.  At 5/2 on the morning line, the daughter of First Samurai offers good value both in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics. 

Santa Anita Race 7: Post time: 3:37 PT

5-Travel Smart (5/2)

Sophomore filly has much in her favor in this starter’s allowance turf miler, as she exits a couple of stakes races (didn’t run badly in either) and is eligible for this race for having broken her maiden for $50,000 over this course and distance last fall.  She removes blinkers, adds Lasix, picks up Johnny V., and should benefit from faster-than-par early fractions to compliment her late-running style.  At 5/2 on the morning line, she’s a win play and rolling exotic single.
