Jeff Siegel, Xpressbet's racing analyst, provides his top plays on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, Candy Money finished third and Just A Bit Sassy ran out.
SEVENTH RACE – SANTA ANITA
7 – CE CE (4-1)
Lightly-raced but extremely talented filly tries two turns for the first time — she was fourth in the Acorn Stakes (Grade 1) at a one-turn mile last year — and based on her comeback win looks capable of being up to the task in a terrific edition of the Beholder Mile (Grade 1). The daughter of Elusive Quality could not have been more impressive beating a lesser field in a common gallop and has trained superbly since. She’s 4-1 on the morning line and offers value both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play at or near that price.
EIGHTH RACE – SANTA ANITA
6 – OUR ROMANCE (5/2)
After hitting the board in three of her last four races when facing tougher straight maiden foes, the Philip D’Amato-trained filly drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and should greatly appreciate this easier task. She’s also shortening up to a sprint and switching to the main track, so under these more favorable conditions the daughter of Archarcharch seems very likely to produce a winning effort. There’s value here at 5/2 on the morning line if you can get it.
