Today at Santa Anita

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 1/8th miles (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $47,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Playful Humor – Exits a key race where Lady Ten and Jolly Days won next out; been away 6-months, but showed real ability then.

4 Remarkable Moon – Dead late closer will hope for a fast early pace to chase; has the right jockey for that running style.

Long Shot – 3 Readyforhercloseup

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $47,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

5 Shakin It Up – Son of Midnight Lute gets first time blinkers on after a strong second in debut; tough if he improves one step.

1 Manando – Longer odds colt of a Bob Baffert uncoupled entry; flattered when Tree of Life won next time out.

Long Shot – 4 Caballo Del Cielo

Race 3 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $8,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Arabian Storm – Popular horse has been claimed three races in a row; flattered when Coo Coo Cachoo won next time out.

3 Hidden Blessing – Trainer Blake Heap is having an outstanding meet with a small barn; horse clearly fits at this comfort level.

Long Shot – 9 Afleet Deal

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $53,000, Optional claiming $62,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Unusual Hottie – Very fine turf resume with 8-for-8 in the money finishes; closer has more tactical speed than you may think.

4 Jet Blue Girl – Has run well three times since claimed by Neil French; Cal-bred clearly shows he belongs in this open company.

Long Shot – 7 Missdealornodeal

Race 5 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Where’s Henry – Did a classic pop and stop in return from a 10-month hiatus; didn’t help with a poor start too.

2 Axle – Wanted no part of a 2-turn race when he was nearly eased in the stretch; his races before that were pretty good.

Long Shot – 5 Bull Time

Race 6 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $28,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 In High Regards – Speedball stretching out around 2-turns; he will like the turf rail out 15 feet, catch him to win.

3 Baby Blake – Second in both career turf starts; will need to settle, won’t get the lead with In High Regards on the wood.

Long Shot – 4 Winds of Dubai

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Tip Your Hat – Ran a remarkable race after stumbling badly at the start; second start off an 11-month hiatus.

1 Tiz a Brite Miss – Speedball did a pop and stop in a 2-turn turf route; cuts back today on dirt, should hold her speed longer.

Long Shot – 6 Secret Genius

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), $100,000 Autumn Miss, Fillies, 3-year-olds

1 Vionnet – Won like a talented horse in last; this is a test for class, I think she has the goods to handle these.

6 Lady Ten – Strong turf resume with 8-for-8 races in the money; tactical speed will come in handy with the rail out 15 feet.

Long Shot – 3 Charm the Maker

Race 9 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

1 Turn On the Brites – Ran a winning race last out for this bottom level class; facing an incredibly slow group tonight.

9 Shoeshine Johnny – Trainer Phil D’Amato has won with 3-of-4 second time out starters; exits a strong bullet workout.

Long Shot – 6 Iamtheganster

Best Bet – 2 Tip Your Hat (race 7)

Santa Anita Friday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/7/$40.20; Long Shots, 7/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/1/$2.40
