Hammersly: Santa Anita pick three play for Saturday, May 9


Some big fields early on the card give an early pick three (races 2-4) some appeal, particularly because race 5, the Grade 1 Vanity, will apparently be reduced to a field a four. Beholder will reportedly scratch, leaving a very short-priced favorite in Warren’s Veneda. That makes the pick threes involving that race less attractive.
