HORSE RACING: Today at Santa Anita, June 20

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $30,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Oil – Exits the best last race in the field in his graduation; this it is always a big class rise facing winners for the first time.

5 Ain’t Misbehavin – Claimed by Mike Pupye from a low percentage barn; what that means is there is a lot of room for improvement.

Long Shot – 2 Hot Lightning

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $31,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

1 Hye I’m Jack – After two straight seconds, is bumped up in class; big rider switch to Rafael Bejarano for the money shot.

2 Player’s Charm – Shown some improvement in his last two starts; there isn’t much in here so a repeat race offers a puncher’s chance.

Long Shot – 6 Ladies Man

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Buckleberry Grey – Won for Philip D’Amato off a 2-year hiatus; was in form and well placed, now facing winners in a much tougher task.

4 Flat Gone – When trainers turn to Rafael Bejarano, that usually means the Midas touch; has been Richard Baltas go to rider of late.

Long Shot – 3 Public Policy

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $20,000, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

5 Know Plans – If you’ve been following me for years, you know how much I like cutbacks; this one does have good races down the hill.

4 Gangnam Guy – Tepid chalk in a very difficult heat; is winless down the hill despite in the money in 5 of 7 hillside course starts.

Long Shot – 10 Field Report

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Dreamologist – If this was based solely on pedigree, this filly would win hands down; watch the tote board for additional clues.

3 Favorably – Bob Baffert FTS comes in under the radar, if that’s possible; starting out on dirt, but has solid turf pedigree.

Long Shot – 4 Moyo Honey

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

7 Molten Image – For forgiving handicappers only; if you can draw a line thru the last race, then his race two back could crush these.

3 Preordained – Has run well of late and now Jorge Periban takes the weight off with bugboy Brayan Pena; start good and keep turning left.

Long Shot – 5 Takem by Surprise

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), $75,000 Singletary, 3-year-olds

6 Soul Driver – Square price on a horse with a lot of stakes experience; plus you get HOF Gary Stevens in a wide open affair.

13 Royal Albert Hall – Should draw in off the also eligible list; bad post but has the ability to lay one on this field for Flavien Prat.

Long Shot – 5 Zinvor

Race 8 – 1 1/16th miles, $200,000 Summertime Oaks, Fillies, 3-year-olds

9 Stellar Wind – Beaten favorite in the Kentucky Oaks had an awful trip; she is a grade 1 horse who on her best day should kill these.

2 Sheer Pleasure – After two blowout stakes wins over Cal-breds, steps up to open company; has tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

Long Shot – 6 Tara’s Tango

Race 9 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

2 Over Par – Has run in a couple Cal-bred stakes while still a maiden; his speed figures in two grass races are faster than dirt.

7 Sir Cal – Seems to have awoken on the grass in his last two starts; overcame a parking lot post 12 in last to gain a good placing.

Long Shot – 9 Los Gatos

Best Bet – 9 Stellar Wind (race 8)

Santa Anita Friday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/7/$36.20; Long Shots, 8/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.20
