Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, Oct. 24


Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 - 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Claiming $10,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Eltoninadress - Has been a consistent, albeit cheaper, claiming horse; tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

4 Long Legged Lovely - Steve Knapp has an MO of doing well with class droppers; this one clearly fits that bill.

Long Shot - 3 Psalm Sixteen

Race 2 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $33,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Golden Itiz - This is a red flag drop by John Sadler; still, if he’s at 90 percent he is the fastest horse in the race.

6 Motown Men - When Mike Mitchell is involved, you don’t draw a line thru him; sliding down the claiming ladder too.

Long Shot - 2 Half Strike

Race 3 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

1 Amy Jane - Like the cut back in distance from the red hot Peter Miller barn; don’t like the rail, but like the connections.

6 Bijoux - Favorite FTS from the respected John Sadler barn; key vote comes from top rider Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot -7 Galehorn

Race 4 - 1 mile, Purse $30,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, 2-year-olds

6 Still Unbroken - Speedball stretches out around 2-turns; interesting rider switch to the capable Aaron Gryder.

7 Pantera Rojo - Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming;

Long Shot - 1 Anythingtogeteven

Race 5 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $31,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Highly Rated - Been away nearly a year, but respect Carla Gaines barn; key vote from Rafael Bejarano only helps.

9 Lilly’s Perfect - If draws in off the AE, figures to be very dangerous; poor start really hampered her in last.

Long Shot - 5 Secret Cove

Race 6 - 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $16,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Hurry Home Cover - Like when horses win and run a slower Beyer speed figure; shows me they may have more in the gas tank.

6 Bob Consultation - Has an underappreciated resume on organic dirt; offers good value at 5/1 odds for a repeat.

Long Shot - 4 Russel’s Run

Race 7 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $51,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

12 Joeandbetty’sbaby - Must draw in off the AE list; like the parking lot post for going down the hillside turf course.

7 Tribal Spy - Outran her 51/1 odds when second in the Unzip Me; you may not like playing her at close to 7/2 morning line.

Long Shot - 10 Zanbo

Race 8 - 1 mile, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Kevin’s Kool Kat - Another Mike Mitchell live one on the card; ran a solid second in last overcoming a tough 12 post.

7 Lethal Miss - Dead late closer got a fast pace in last to set up her rally; will again be at the mercy of the early pace.

Long Shot - 2 Patriot C H

Best Bet - 1 Amy Jane (race 3)
