Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds

1 Stormin Proud Papa – Claimed and double dropped in class by Dan Hendricks; these foes are his friends.

4 Tiger Trysts – Ran like a horse that needed a race in last; can improve in second start off a 5-month hiatus.

Long Shot – 2 Courtside

Race 2 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

6 Forward Commitment – Hard to get excited about this pick who is 0-for-18; still his speed figures merit attention.

9 Clocker Moment – Dead-late closer gets Garrett Gomez to ride in this bottom-level maiden claimer; must mean something.

Long Shot – 7 Warrens Wild Thing

Race 3 – 1 mile, Purse $54,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds

3 Midnight Interlude – Did everything but win last time out; repeat race is fast enough to beat these.

4 Grip Hands – Was heavily favored in debut; returned in last off a 3-month hiatus like a horse needing a race.

Long Shot – 2 Brock

Race 4 – 1 1/2 miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), $150,000 San Luis Rey, 4-year-olds and up

8 Dahoud – The maestro Jerry Hollendorfer has carefully nurtured this New Zealand import; now he’s ready to tackle toughies.

6 Restless Soul – SoCal veteran returns off a 5-month hiatus under Neil Drysdale; big shot to outrun his high odds.

Long Shot – 7 Juniper Pass

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $59,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

6 Capital Account – He won both his races at Del Mar like he’s a special horse; Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry here.

4 Irrefutable – Do not expect the Baffert horses to duel; his win two back is the pace scenario for today.

Long Shot – 7 Sanger Silver

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

8 River’s Mambo – Showed great improvement off the claim by Julio Canani; could improve another step tonight.

2 Whiskers and Rye – The fact that Rafael Bejarano remains loyal speaks volumes; big improvement last time out.

Long Shot – 5 She’sawontontomato

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $34,000, Claiming $32,000, 4-year-olds

5 Time for Atonement – May get some value becausing claiming from Jerry Hollendorfer is a tough thing; reunited with Joel Rosario.

4 Very Fair – Logical chalk dropping down one notch in class; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

Long Shot – 11 Keen Bidder

Race 8 – 6 1/2 furlongs, $100,000 Santa Paula, Fillies, 3-year-olds

8 Mildly Offensive – Superb debut was flattered when Home Sweet Aspen won next out; like the parking lot post too.

5 Hout Bay – Closed from the clouds to graduate in debut; could very easily be a chalk exacta, speed and closer.

Long Shot – 6 Justenufappeal

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

6 Matamor – Ran OK first off the claim by Doug O’Neill; drop in class makes him a solid favorite in here.

9 Cut n’ Deal – Whenever P Val takes over for the first time, the horse improves; he’ll put him into the race for sure.

Long Shot – 4 Bay Rush

Best Bet – 8 Mildly Offensive (race 8)

Santa Anita Park Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 20/7/$39.40; Long Shots, 9/1/$4.80; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.40
