McGee: Santa Anita pick four play for Saturday, May 28


It’s an interesting Saturday card at Santa Anita, particularly with a couple of the Cal-bred stakes assimilated into the late pick four (races 8-11). I’ll be relying on VELVET MESQUITE to return to peak form after being regrouped by Blake Heap as a single in the Fran’s Valentine (race 10) while also trying to skate by with just two horses, MONTEREY SHALE and TENGAS RANSOM, in the preceding race for statebred maiden sprinters. I’ll bookend the play with scatter-shots that hopefully cover all bases.
