Today at Santa Anita Park: Mar. 23, 2014


Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 - 1 1/16th miles, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds

1 Rprettyboyfloyd - Lost a dirty nose last time out; Rafael Bejarano is serving a 3-day suspension, so Corey Nakatani rides.

6 Party Time - Part of a blanket finish with the chalk last time out; Bob Baffert give George Woolf winner Corey Lanerie a ride.

Long Shot - 3 Arkenstone

Race 2 - 1 mile, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

4 L X Sunrise - Like the cut back in distance where she should be stronger at the end; Saul Arias is OK by me, and offers value.

6 Warrenspoweroflove - Stretching out around 2-turns for the first time; should have tactical speed to attend the early pace.

Long Shot - 2 Lovely Instinct

Race 3 - 1 mile, $100,000 Dream of Summer, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

5 Unusual Way - Could lead a parade of chalk, or chalk to try and upset; did everything but win in a gutsy try at Sam Houston.

1 Halo Dolly - Consistent sort faces restricted Cal-breds tonight; she’ll save every inch of ground along the rail.

Long Shot - 4 Curvy Cat

Race 4 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $58,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

3 Baruta - Just missed in a big U.S. debut for Richard Mandella; big rider switch to the main man Gary Stevens.

7 Tizmetizyou - Been away since June, but showed talent back then; first time down the hill should be very interesting.

Long Shot - 4 Kyriaki

Race 5 - 1 mile, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

1 Include the Cat - Has lost two close calls under Brice Blanc, now switching to Joe Talamo; Peter Miller barn remains hot.

8 Legacy - Lots of chalk possible today, this one may offer some value; Drayden Van Dyke been riding in Phoenix on the dark days.

Long Shot - 2 Proud Vixen

Race 6 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $32,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

8 Lucky Primo - Tight call in a wide open affair; key for me is a huge class drop from the Cal Cup Classic to $25K price tag.

3 Square Dancer - After 3 straight in the money finishes, tries a much lower class; Corey Lanerie again is given a live mount.

Long Shot - 12 Depreciable

Race 7 - 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $17,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

5 Brown Is Beige - Upset winner in last will try to make it 2 in a row; 5-YO mare had not win in 2 years, may like the feeling.

1 Eltoninadress - Claimed by Jeff Mullins off a hard fought second; 5-for-5 in the money over Santa Anita main track.

Long Shot - 2 Giannonatti

Race 8 - 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $30,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Fighting On - Finished willingly down the hill in his last two; moves inside where it can get tight at times.

8 Sheer Talent - Ran OK in first race off the claim by Mark Glatt; like the cut back in distance, can expect better today.

Long Shot - 4 Red N Black Attack

Race 9 - 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

3 Fast Moka Too - Was well meant in last but got tired the final furlong; second start off the layoff, should be a lot tighter.

8 Rich in Tradition - Has cashed 10 paychecks but no finish was closer than last time; camera shy, but hard to leave out too.

Long Shot - 10 Dulcemia

Best Bet - 3 Fast Moka Too (race 9)
