HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile, Purse $54,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

2 Lunch Time Diva – Well bet in both career starts in finishing second both times; figures to be closing fastest of all.

3 Star Presence – She has burned money as a beaten favorite in 3-of-5 career starts; has run fast, but not fast enough yet.

Long Shot – 1 So She Dances

Race 2 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $38,000, Claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Hey Elvis – Be wary if this race moves to the main track, then all bets are off; vanned off in last, Rafael Bejarano rides.

1 Swift Winds – Is better on grass, but has won twice on dirt; saves all the ground and comes grinding in the lane.

Long Shot – 6 Achak

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $16,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Look to the Sky – Peter Miller was the hottest trainer at Hollywood; he appears to have kept the mojo going in Arcadia.

6 Misinjennuous – Sliding down the claiming ladder, but has found her comfort zone at the bottom; tries stretching out 2 turns.

Long Shot – 5 Lucy Got Lucky

Race 4 – 7 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Claiming $50,000, 2-year-olds

3 Offlee Wild Boys – Beat a decent field in open company last time; big rider switch to Garrett Gomez for a repeat performance.

4 Runaway Wildcat – Exiting two tougher stakes for this $50K price tag; like that Rafael Bejarano is taking the call.

Long Shot – 2 Divine Child

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $68,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

5 Cayambe – Has won 2-of-4 starts on dirt; he’s better going long, but figures to be finishing fast for Rafael Bejarano.

6 Earnednevergiven – Another who has a good resume on dirt; a natural sprinter, he appears to be in top form right now.

Long Shot – 3 My Summer Slew

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $56,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Vision in Gold – She is well regarded in the Ron Ellis barn; tactical speed to sit a perfect trip in a wide-open affair.

5 Queen Martha – Good try in last, her debut over synthetics; returns to dirt where she has a big second to Rachel Alexandra.

Long Shot – 3 Beautiful American

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $63,000, Optional claiming $100,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Talktoomuch – Has been perfect with 3 wins since claimed by Mike Mitchell; may scratch if it comes off the grass.

3 Late Cuddle – Has been an in-and-outer since joining the maestro, Jerry Hollendorfer barn; still has a high ceiling.

Long Shot – 6 Celtic Princess

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

3 Elegant – Solid second last time, first for a price tag; Bob Hess adding blinkers on, clearly the one to beat.

1 Miss Addy Kiss – Suspect Corey Nakatani will send hard from the rail; good strategy in a potential no-passing-zone field.

Long Shot – 8 Truckee Thrust

Best Bet – 3 Elegant (race 8)
