TODAY AT SANTA ANITA

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $22,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

10 Malibu Love – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; need not be much to win.

5 Silver Street – Tepid chalk in an open opener; class drop from $50K to $30K can only help the cause.

Long Shot – 4 Kvetch

Race 2 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

5 Our Boy Benjamin – After a slow start in last, was flying fast at the finish; bred to handle the greensward.

1 Big Bad Barry – Rail skimming trip can be an advantage here; has enough speed to protect his position.

Long Shot – 2 Mental Giant

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $27,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 2-year-olds

2 Endless Cruise – Looks like a sharp claim by John Sadler; don’t expect this one to run for a price for a while.

7 Hot Ride – Was flattered when Chips All In won next out; looks like a nice sprinter who can grind out purses.

Long Shot – 3 Warren’s Clyde

Race 4 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $21,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

10 Visual Intensity – Appears better suited for grass than dirt or synthetics; tactical speed to sit a good trip.

4 Absolutlypositivly – Been long in the tooth but runs fast enough to be in many turf trifectas; be grinding late.

Long Shot – 11 One Nation

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles, $250,000 Norfolk, 2-year-olds

5 Drill – Renewal of a great finish in the Del Mar Futurity last out; should improve as the races get longer.

4 Creative Cause – Was ridden with complete confidence in the Del Mar Futurity; big rider switch to Joel Rosario.

Long Shot – 6 Basmati

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, $250,000 Lady’s Secret, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Blind Luck – The champ remains the one they have to knock out; she has earned her frequent flyer mileage.

3 Ask the Moon – We’ll find out if she’s much improved or just exploded at Saratoga; eastern shippers have done well lately.

Long Shot – 7 Zazu

Race 7 – 1 1/8th miles, $250,000 Goodwood, 3-year-olds and up

2 Coil – A forgiving handicapper must draw a line thru the Travers debacle; 3-YO facing his elders tonight.

8 Game On Dude – Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry; sure looks like one of his two horses will win the Goodwood.

Long Shot – 7 Awesome Gem

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $48,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

5 Mr. Make Believe – Well regarded colt is improving with each start; suspect will be highly overbet in this spot.

6 Romeo Royale – Big rider switch to P Val off a victory; has good tactical speed so expect an aggressive ride tonight.

Long Shot – 4 Renegade Storm

Race 9 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

6 Final Vindication – You’ll have a big edge over me with nearly all FTS here; like the bullet work and P Val riding.

4 Coach Sickie – Is bred to be quick and could surprise from Jeff Mullins barn; watch the tote board for clues.

Long Shot – 1 Blueskiesnrainbows

Race 10 – 1 1/4 miles (turf), $250,000 Yellow Ribbon, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Cozi Rosie – Garrett Gomez had choices and opted to ride for John Sadler; this looks like the toughest race on the card.

3 Dubawi Heights – Did everything but win in the Beverly D last out; speedy sort may get a jump on the deep closers.

Long Shot – Harmonius

Race 11 – 6 furlongs, Purse $18,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

11 Sweet Pleasure – Tiny edge in an open finale to the pick 6; if you’re live, you need to be spread in this race.

6 Nana Beach – Figures to get overlooked with 23 losses; key is this is such a slow field she may inherit the lead.

Long Shot – 4 Jenny’s Turn

Best Bet – 2 Endless Cruise (race 3)

Santa Anita Friday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/5/$35.80; Long Shots, 9/2/$30.00; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
