TODAY AT SANTA ANITA PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 3-year-olds

9 J J Be Chillin – FTS from Jeff Mullins; hard to believe he is 0-for-17 so far in Arcadia, that can change today.

7 One for Nothing – He is fast enough, but 0-for-10 shows no killer instinct; adding blinkers on.

Long Shot – 3 Warrens Hornblower

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $65,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 4-year-olds and up

5 Great Mills – Exits a key race in the BC Turf Sprint; no shame finishing right behind Mizdirection and Reneesgotzip.

4 Irish Art – Proven performer down the hillside turf course; suspect will sit a trip and try the favorite late.

Long Shot – 1 Ain’t No Other

Race 3 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Claiming $10,000, 4-year-olds and up

3 Rummysecret War – Claimed by Jeff Mullins off s good second; Mullins figures to get off the goose egg tonight.

2 National – Claimed by Adam Kitchingman off a poor effort; if he can get him to rebound, he’ll be right there.

Long Shot – 7 Honour Family

Race 4 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $56,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

9 Top Kisser – Debut sprinting in a very fast paced race; suspect will be lone early speed trying to wire the field.

6 St. Malo’s Gate – Kin to Nashoba’s Key still has a way to go to match that one; still has promise after only 2 starts.

Long Shot – 2 Krazypapaya

Race 5 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 3-year-olds

7 Circular Logic – FTS from Mike Mitchell in potentially a wide open affair; your edge is seeing the tote board action.

4 Zia Zia Zia – The lone starter with experience; she ran well in debut, a bit green, but showed some ability.

Long Shot – 1 Swimmin Insunshine

Race 6 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $30,000, Claiming $32,000, 4-year-olds and up

2 Seattle Ruler – Exits a key race where he had the lead to mid-stretch; has what it takes to make another run at these.

6 Slammer Time – Tepid chalk in what is the hardest race on the card; dead late closer will try to carve out a trip.

Long Shot – 11 Quindici Man

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, $150,000 La Canada, Fillies, 4-year-olds

2 Lady of Fifty – The maestro, Jerry Hollendorfer, is on a hot streak this meet; she exits a sharp win in the Bayakoa.

3 Book Review – Closed stoutly to just get up in the La Brea; she stretches back out in distance, but has the class to last.

Long Shot – Open Water

Race 8 – 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $40,000, Starter handicap $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

3 Include the Cat –

4 Going for a Spin – Claimed by Julio Canani and won first out with her; when he gets them good, they stay good.

Long Shot – 7 Van Brit

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $21,000, Claiming $12,500, 4-year-olds

6 Smoken Legacy – Drops down to the lowest class of his life; last leg of the pick 6 is a wide open affair.

7 Kenichi – Example of an in and outer; has won two races sandwiched between two bad races.

Long Shot – 10 Deal’Em

Best Bet – 5 Great Mills (race 2)

Santa Anita Park Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/6/$35.40; Long Shots, 8/1/$8.40; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
