Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, Mar. 7

Post Time Noon

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $16,000, 4-year-olds and up

9 Sheer Talent – Parking lot post is fine in this elongated sprint; chance to stalk the pace and come grinding in the stretch.

2 American Act – Second start off the claim by Michael Pender; showed good improvement in last, these are clearly his friends.

Long Shot – 3 Triunfo

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

5 Alfiero – Tiny edge in an extremely difficult heat; taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming.

10 Tizapalooza – Another taking a big class drop from MSW to maiden claiming; has been well bet throughout his career for Marty Jones.

Long Shot – 2 Matty’s Tribal

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 3-year-olds

4 Emyvale Court – Ran huge in her debut at a rich 22/1 odds; won’t get that today, she’s favored in a repeat try down the hill.

9 Revenue Virginius – Ran third behind the chalk last time out; that was her grass debut and she showed speed and moxie throughout.

Long Shot – 10 Screaming Skylar

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 3-year-olds

5 Never Ends – Has run two fast races but been second in both tries; lost to really good ones, should be her day to graduate today.

2 Cafetiere – Was off slowly in her career debut, but ran on well for fourth; loses her rider to the chalk, but Tyler Baze is a fine sub.

Long Shot – 9 Miss Centerfold

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 4-year-olds and up

10 Pulling G’s – Has started poorly in his last 2 starts; last was a real clunker because he didn’t finish either, much better than that.

9 I B Mike – Ran great first race off the claim by Mark Glatt; is aggressively raised in class which shows a lot of confidence.

Long Shot – 7 Kill Shot

Race 6 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

1 Hug and a Kiss – Was well regarded when favored in her U.S. debut; should move forward for Simon Callaghan and save all the ground too.

12 Fresh Feline – Big rider switch to Victor Espinoza for the money shot; she is a Kitten’s Joy so has a high ceiling on the turf.

Long Shot – 7 Zanbo

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, $400,000 San Felipe, 3-year-olds

3 Dortmund – Unbeaten colt from the Bob Baffert barn; this one and American Pharoah are top dogs on many Kentucky Derby top 10 lists.

6 Prospect Park – Live Derby colt from the Cliff Sise barn; after seeing what Art Sherman did last year, Sise is one to root for too.

Long Shot – 2 Ocho Ocho Ocho

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf), $75,000 China Doll, Fillies, 3-year-olds

2 She’s a Big Winner – Has won both her grass starts down the unique hillside course; now tries 2-turns but I love her true grit to win.

5 Curlin’s Fox – Logical chalk was no secret in her career debut; typical Mike Smith measured win in debut, she looks like the nuts.

Long Shot – 8 Bobbi Grace

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, $250,000 San Carlos, 4-year-olds and up

1 Chitu – Bob Baffert colt has settled in as a 1-turn sprinter; suspect he can win at 2-turns but under perfect conditions.

4 Conquest Two Step – Took advantage of a suicide speed duel in last to cruise to victory; may not see the same set up this afternoon.

long Shot – 7 Wild Dude

Race 10 – 1 mile (turf), $400,000 Frank E. Kilroe Mile, 4-year-olds and up

8 Summer Front – Give him credit for losing by 2-lengths in the Breeders’ Cup Mile; this is a classy hard trying turf miler.

3 Winning Prize – He ended last season on a downer, but ran some special races early on; defending champion of the Kilroe Mile.

Long Shot – 10 Ring Weekend

Race 11 – 1 1/4 miles, $1 million Santa Anita Handicap, 4-year-olds and up

5 Shared Belief – Would be quite an upset if he does not win; he may not have to leave SoCal until the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland.

6 Moreno – He has back class numbers to match the chalk with his very best effort; has one way of going, on the engine and non-stop too.

Long Shot – 12 Catch a Flight

Best Bet – 5 Shared Belief (race 11)

Santa Anita Friday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/5/$31.20; Long Shots, 9/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 689/184/$1,162.20; Long Shots, 346/49/$485.40; Best Bets, 42/15/$67.20
