Picks and Ponderings: 2017 Santa Anita Handicap Day Preview

Saturday’s card at Santa Anita is a huge one, and I’ve taken a dive into all five of the stakes races.

The card features a trio of Grade 1 events.  In addition to the Big ‘Cap, sprinters also get a top-level chance in the Triple Bend, and turf milers line up for the Kilroe.  The Grade 2 San Felipe drew a small field, but features a showdown of the west coast’s two marquee sophomore males: Gormley and Mastery.  And, the China Doll drew an overflow field of sophomore fillies to go a mile on the grass, a mix of proven stakes horses and newer faces.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s stakes action at Santa Anita, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
