Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, June 19


Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 - 5 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

1 Haleys Rainbow - FTS from the Kathy Walsh barn has been working well at Los Alamitos; we’ll be in Orange County in a couple of weeks.

2 Caval - This filly cost $150K at Keeneland and is from the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer; watch the tote board for additional clues.

Long Shot - 5 So You Say

Race 2 - 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Antinanco - Sliding down the maiden claiming ladder to this career low class; has run two decent speed figure races for Bruce Headley.

3 Juliet’s Tizzy - Tepid chalk in a wide open affair; Doug O’Neill barn also dropping to the bottom in search of a graduation victory.

Long Shot - 5 Sudden Rumor

Race 3 - 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Remarkable Moon - Third start off a 13-month hiatus; should show even more progress today in a wide open turf route scrum.

5 Another Sky - Was beating easier in a maiden claiming $50K; taking the biggest class rise in racing, facing winners for the first time.

Long Shot - 6 Scooter Bird

Race 4 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $60,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

5 Magic Mark - Sandwiched a poor race two back with two sharp victories; has shown he does not need the early lead to succeed.

3 Secretsatmidnight - Gets class relief from the Grade 3 Precisionist for this; might be a confidence builder by crafty Bob Baffert.

Long Shot - 2 Tiz Dynamic

Race 5 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $31,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds and up

4 Superboot - Was claimed cheap by Peter Miller and showed immediate improvement; key may have been a return to grass for this Euro bred.

2 Warrior’s Ridge - His two races down the hillside turf course are both positive efforts; like the way Kent Desormeaux is riding now.

Long Shot - 6 Aerial Dancer

Race 6 - 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $20,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Queen of the Hill - Was claimed for $8K by Doug O’Neill and has been very productive; dirt is clearly her preferred surface.

3 Fly to Freedom - Claimed four races ago by Peter Miller and has earned paychecks each time out; these are her friends at this level.

Long Shot - 1 Say’s Who

Race 7 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Dancer Humor - Mike Pupye has had an unlucky meet; most of his horses are live, but way too many have run second or third.

3 Maxx the Giant - Was in too deep in a fast paced hillside turf race; will enjoy the milder pace of this 2-turn mile on grass.

Long Shot - 6 Warren’s Cliff S.

Race 8 - 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Nonna Reese - Proven to be camera shy, but others appear too slow to compete; may inherit the lead if the pacesetter keeps backing up.

6 Point Endurance - A big edge for this filly is only 2 career starts; while others are sure to be too slow, this gal can improve.

Long Shot - 8 Run Rosie Run

Best Bet - 6 Queen of the Hill (race 6)
