This Saturday, the winter meet opens up at Santa Anita. The card features a four-pack of stakes races. They include a pair of Grade I seven-furlong dirt sprints, the Malibu and the La Brea, supported by the Mathis Brothers Mile (GII) and the Daytona Stakes (GIII). Three of the four races drew double-digit field sizes…and what the Malibu lacks in field size, it has in star power, with Breeders’ Cup Sprint champion Runhappy in the field.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings, see who I like in Saturday’s stakes races at Santa Anita, and let me know in the comments what you think about opening day!
