Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, June 26

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile, Purse $21,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

3 Two Is to Many – Claimed by Mark Glatt off a gutsy win for Peter Miller; Glatt need not improve him, just maintain his top form.

5 Dr Williams – Another claimed off a sharp win last out; Eric Kruljac has the same task as Glatt, just keep the mojo going.

Long Shot – 4 Mel’s Game

Race 2 – 1 mile, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

1 Yard Line – Has lost 3 in a row at odds on chalk; understand if you pass on him, but his speed figures are the fastest in the field.

3 Wrightwood – Woke up last time with a monster effort; tries 2-turns and to get trainer Mike Harrington off a 0-for-45 winless duck.

Long Shot – 5 Missing Groom

Race 3 – 1 1/2 miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), $75,000 Possibly Perfect Handicap, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 Changethechannel – Like the fact she has run well in a pair of 1 1/4 mile marathons; this Belmont Stakes distance is for gallopers.

6 Customer Base – Logical chalk also exits the grade 1 Gamely for an easier spot; the key question is lasting the marathon distance.

Long Shot – 5 Phonybooksnrecords

Race 4 – 5 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

10 Sweet Mz. Poppet – Ran OK in debut for second; that one race experience provides a solid edge in a race full of FTS.

9 Soul Flyer – FTS from Julio Canani barn is bred to be quick; watch the tote board for additonal clues.

Long Shot – 8 Fab Four Ever

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $31,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Stolen Property – Tiny edge due to 3 OK turf races on his resume; this is clearly the slowest group of horses he has ever faced.

3 Surfer Moon – Tepid chalk in a wide open race; notice how the fifth race is seemingly the hardest on an 8-race program.

Long Shot – 4 Lassie’s Reward

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Sunday Rules – As hot as the Philip D’Amato barn is going, this one is dangerous off the shelf; stakes winner for retired Mike Mitchell.

5 Classy Ava – That was a clever MSW win in last; facing winners for the first time is a distinct jump up in class.

Long Shot – 8 Tappingintherain

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $40,000, Starter Handicap $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Happybirthdaybaby – This could be a Jerry Hollendorfer exacta box; has an uncoupled entry with Heat Du Jour, so caveat emptor.

3 Heat Du Jour – Has had success down the hillside turf course; claimed by Jerry Hollendorfer off a big win, now cuts back in distance.

Long Shot – 5 Thermal Nermal

Race 8 – 5 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Philanderer – The less starts the better at this bottom level; this one showed good early speed in debut, play catch me if you can.

9 Tasha’s Courage – Big trainer change could provide a wake-up call; has some good back speed figures for Jack Carava to mine back to.

Long Shot – 1 Midnight Roar

Best Bet – 4 Sunday Rules (race 6)

Santa Anita Park Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/5/$24.80; Long Shots, 9/1/$10.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Park Totals – 580/157/$1,081.80; Long Shots, 282/39/$368.20; Best Bets, 33/10/$41.80

SIMULCAST PLAY OF THE DAY – #6 Leilani’s Ticket (10/1) in race 8 at Belmont Park. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Sunday, Jolene ran third at Belmont Park paying $3.80 to show. Stats – 97/59/$574.00; Follow him on Twitter: @richeng4propick
