Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, March 22

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

1 Katerrific – Claimed by Robertino Diodoro off a good second; big rider switch to Fernando Perez will help get better odds.

5 Lady Now – Been away since August at Del Mar; returns in a very soft spot so the question is if she’s ready to fire.

Long Shot – 6 Rock N Bunny

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Claiming $10,000, 4-year-olds and up

5 Peacenik – Did everything but win last time out; second start off a 4-month hiatus, key will be if he moves forward or not.

2 Atta Boy Pete – Ships down from NoCal for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer; has run a couple of good races on dirt before.

Long Shot – 4 Mosso

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

1 The Man – Ran a clunker in last when Bob Baffert took the blinkers off; guess what, he puts the blinkers back on tonight.

6 Ketos – Got an education in debut, started slow, was rushed up and then tired; life will be simpler with a good start.

Long Shot – 4 Hook ‘Em Kurt

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

2 Seedsandstemsagain – Getting a bit long on the tooth; has run some races fast enough to win, but still finds a way to lose.

1 Hazardous Dreams – Don’t like the rail post, but like the jockey; has teased with a couple of too little, too late, rallies.

Long Shot – 7 McHeat

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 4-year-olds and up

8 Win Wish – Dull effort in last when he took a lot of betting; his race two back, if repeated, would put him right there.

4 Practical – Ran like a short horse in last off a 10-month hiatus; he did run one race last March fast enough to beat these.

Long Shot – 5 Senor Pegasus

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $32,000, Claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

6 Kerrilynn – Let the Rafael Bejarano show continue; has a lot of back class to run a much improved effort tonight.

1 Nero’s Pleasure – Is winless on grass, but I like the cutback angle nonetheless; will sit in arrears and make one big brush.

Long Shot – 4 Always a Chance

Race 7 – 1 mile, $100,000 Dream of Summer, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

4 Sweet Marini – Gets class relief from two graded stakes for this; like the subtle cut back in distance, may be able to stalk a bit.

5 Wild in the Saddle – Not much to pick from between the two race favorite; Rafael Bejarano is as tough as they come in the lane.

Long Shot – 6 Grazenette

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 8 feet), Purse $65,000, Optional claiming $80,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

1 Birdlover – I like the rail post at a mile, turf or dirt; short run to the first turn allows for saving a lot of ground.

5 Indecise – Terrific return off a one year hiatus; the key will be if she moves forward, repeats or regresses tonight.

Long Shot – 6 Industrial Policy

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

6 Gold Journey – This is an ugly, but evenly matched finale; like the switch to Joe Talamo for the money shot.

10 Pocketfullofgreen – Vote is strictly for the trainer Philip D’Amato; he gets horses to improve no matter what they look like.

Long Shot – 5 Coded Message

Best Bet – 1 The Man (race 3)

Santa Anita Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 17/5/$37.60; Long Shots, 9/1/$13.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 841/221/$1,424.60; Long Shots, 423/61/$612.80; Best Bets, 51/19/$85.40

SIMULCAST PLAY OF THE DAY – #4 Divine Storm (9/5) in race 2 at Aqueduct. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Saturday, No Act ran out at Gulfstream Park. Stats – 42/32/$206.10; Follow him on Twitter: @richeng4propick
