Horse Racing, Santa Anita Park, March 30


Today at Santa Anita Park

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $40,000, Claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

2 Talktoomuch - Has settled into a comfort zone as a late closing sprinter; won and sliding down the claiming ladder for Mike Mitchell.

4 Linda Lou - Richard Mandella races very few culls; while he's trying to get ride of her, key vote comes from Joel Rosario riding.

Long Shot - 6 Missdealornodeal

Race 2 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $26,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

5 Tripped the Light - Been claimed in 5 of her last 9 races; biggest vote is she is reclaimed by Bob Hess.

2 Really Elegant - Speedball best chance of winning is bottoming out the field; plays catch me if you can.

Long Shot - 1 Living Our Dream

Race 3 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $58,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

7 Deity - Loses her jockey to the favorite, but Joel Rosario is a capable sub; she may fly with the turf rail out 30 feet.

5 Schiaparelli - Exciting debut win, albeit 10-months ago; the main question is fitness, she was stopped for some sort of problem.

Long Shot - 3 Princess Suances

Race 4 - 6 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

5 Folk Dancer - Tiny edge in a very pedestrian race; she won two races back, but is capable of doing even better.

6 Storm Magic - Claimed by a low percentage trainer Edward Freeman and cut back in distance; watch the tote board for clues.

Long Shot - 3 Flashy Traveler

Race 5 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $26,000, 4-year-olds and up

1 Clearance Clarence - The Jeff Mullins barn is in high gear once again; along with a big trainer switch comes Joel Rosario.

3 Warrens Wild Thing - Dead late closer figures to sit in arrears and come running late; Kevin Krigger is doing some good work this meet.

Long Shot - 7 Warren's Kong

Race 6 - 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

6 Salty Robbin - This one is for forgiving handicappers only; lost rider in last, but was competitive in this bottom class.

3 Smart Hombre - An auspicious loss in last at 2/5 odds; will be a better price today, but instills modest confidence.

Long Shot - 8 Kumite

Race 7 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $63,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

8 Red Defense - Parking lot post is a good stall down the hillside turf course; like the turn back in distance from a mile for this.

4 Victory Pete - Was a non-factor in the Big Cap, so he shouldn't even be tired; comfort zone on turf and facing this caliber.

Long Shot - 6 Mobilized

Race 8 - 6 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Sea John's Spirit - Was well bet in debut with Rafael Bejarano; second start is on dirt with Joel Rosario up, respect.

3 Royal Weekend - The class difference between Cal-bred MSW and $40K is not much; should good energy in her career debut.

Long Shot - 7 Mary Contrary

Best Bet - 2 Talktoomuch (race 1)
