Bernier: How I'd play Santa Anita for Saturday, March 5


The featured event on Saturday’s nine-race program at Santa Anita is the Grade 3 Santa Ysabel Stakes for 3-year-old fillies, and the undefeated 2-year-old champion SONGBIRD will look to remain perfect on her way towards the Kentucky Oaks. Unfortunately, her presence makes that race very unappealing from a wagering standpoint, as I have zero desire to attempt to beat her. While that race doesn’t appear very appetizing, there are a few spots where I believe a few bucks can be made.
