Jeff Siegel’s National Prime Plays

Friday, March 19, 2021

Every Friday thru Sunday 1/ST BET handicapper Jeff Siegel offers his best wagering opportunity from a selected North American racetrack.  These “Best Plays” can take the form of a win wager, exacta, trifecta, or a daily double, pick-3, pick-4 or pick-6.


Golden Gate – Third Race – Post time: 2:28 PT

1-Into the Wind (7/2)

The even money morning line favorite Made In Karoo will be tough to beat let’s go for a better price with this lightly-raced Southern California shipper.  The daughter of Big Blue Kitten showed some ability in her debut over the all-weather surface at Turfway Park last month and then was out of her element when badly overmatched in straight maiden company at Santa Anita.  This maiden $8,000 claiming field should be within her range, and from her favorable rail draw she’s guaranteed a good ground-saving trip.  If she’s going to be any kind of race horse, this would be a good place to show it, so at 7/2 on the morning line she offers a bit of gamble in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.


Santa Anita – Eighth Race – Post time: 4:53 PT

3-Alexander’s Dream (8-1)

Sophomore maiden finally gets a chance to stretch out around two turns and we suspect the J. Bonde-trained colt will make the most of the opportunity.  Bred for turf and displaying improvement in his first try on the sod last month, the J. Bonde-trained colt finished with interest to be a good third while earning by far a career top speed figure.  He’s worked well since so another forward move is likely, and projects to draft into a comfortable second flight, ground-saving position and then have every chance.  There’s good long shot value here at anywhere near his  8-1 on the morning line
