A Case for, A Case Against – Santa Anita 2/13/21

A Case for A Case Against- Santa Anita 2.13.21  <–click for article

Pretty good card today at Santa Anita after a chalky start yesterday to the 4-day racing weekend (President’s Day Card on Monday). Special attention to race 2 today, where Karen Headley enters both Brace for Impact and Curry, her dad’s (Bruce Headley) last two winners before he passed away in January after at the age of 86, following a 60+ year in the industry. Wishing the connections, the best.

Today’s cases for and against start in Race 3 for me, where if you are a new reader, I make cases for some horses that may not be the obvious selections, and cases against some shorter priced horses that may be light on value. For each, I will “show the work” and highlight a few different tools and resources available to fans and horseplayers. No matter how you play them, hoping you enjoy the races todayand if you have questions on the article, feel free to reach out to me @RMcCarthy1 on twitter.

Today’s Spotlight Horses:

  • Race 3: Against Mount Pelliar (9/5)
  • Race 8: For Merneith (5/1)
  • Race 9: For Mind the Gap (6/1) Top play and single for me today.
