Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, Jan. 8

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile, Purse $26,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds
6 Chalking It Up – Big class drop points to the morning line favorite as the filly to beat; if you noticed in the DRF, her Beyer figures have gotten better with each start.
4 Gracee Hunny – Leap of faith that his big rider switch to Rafael Bejarano will signal more than intent, but victory; also taking a big class drop for an easier test.
Long Shot – 5 Octofy

Race 2 – 7 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds
1 Goldrushcat – Tiny edge in an impossible looking race; good thing it is outside of the Pick 6, which took in $2.5 million dollars yesterday chasing a 2-day carryover.
4 Reinahermosa – Dead late closer may be suited perfectly for this elongated sprint; seems to run out of ground while rallying, will have a longer launch pad tonight.
Long Shot – 6 Blazeinblairsden

Race 3 – 1 mile, Purse $65,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 4-year-olds and up
6 Cat Burglar – Like that the main man Rafael Bejarano is taking over; he is getting on more and more HOF trainer Bob Baffert stock, that can only lead to good things.
1 Midnight Hawk – This is the shorter odds of the Bob Baffert uncoupled entry; he has not run since March so he could easily be in need of a race, runs well short or long.
Long Shot – 5 Class Leader

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up
2 Tryst – If reputation is good enough, then put this HOF trainer Richard Mandella FTS in the winner’s circle; beautiful pedigree and cost $400K at Keeneland sales.
5 Fugacious Dancer – Split the field in her career debut at Santa Anita last May; been sidelined since but also has strong pedigree and should be grinding late.
Long Shot – 4 Back Beauty

Race 5 – 6 ½ furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up
7 Sayitright Kat – Not much is slowing down the team of Rafael Bejarano and trainer Richard Baltas; this one has tactical speed to lead or sit a close up journey.
6 Flowinwiththebreez – Just broke her maiden for trainer Philip D’Amato; jockey Tiago Pereira has enough niche business where he can stick it out with multiple barns.
Long Shot – 8 Kelbaker

Race 6 – 6 ½ furlongs, Purse $32,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up
1 Sweetrayofsunshine – May get the trip that was a winner on yesterday’s card; from the rail stay inside and save all the ground, angle out for room and rally for home.
7 Vocalist – If you draw a line thru the last clunker, her resume looks a lot better; she was 5 for 5 in the money before that, tactical speed to sit a nice stalking trip.
Long Shot – 6 Privileged One

Race 7 – 1 mile, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $80,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds
3 Daring Darling – No surprised as she was favored in her debut and won like a seasoned pro; should be lone early speed on the stretch out around 2-turns, big edge.
4 Mokat – Morning line favorite has an obvious question to her; she has run great twice on turf, but not so good in one dirt try, by Unlce Mo she should do better.
Long Shot – 6 Annie’s Curls

Race 8 – 6 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up
6 Secret Chords – Her claim was voided in last so she returns to trainer Eddie Truman; he runs her right back in the same low class hoping for a better effort.
7 Sweeter Thancandy – Rafael Bejarano won yesterday’s finale, so he’s not averse to sticking around for the end of the card; sliding down the maiden claiming ladder.
Long Shot – 1 Mad Mango

Best Bet – 6 Secret Chords (race 8)
Santa Anita Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/5/$29.20; Long Shots, 8/1/$25.20; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
Santa Anita Totals – 131/27/$169.80; Long Shots, 68/7/$82.00; Best Bets, 7/0/$0
SIMULCAST PLAY OF THE DAY – #9 Town Tart (3/1) in race 7 at Aqueduct. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Thursday, Liberty First ran second at Aqueduct paying $6.10 to place and $4.30 to show. Simo stats – 8/2/$15.70; Follow him on Twitter: @richeng4propick
