Today at Santa Anita

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 My Diane – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this bottom class level; chance to save ground and come grinding late.

7 Filly Power – Speedy sort will try to get a soft early lead; Dallas Keen claimed and now takes the blinkers off.

Long Shot – 10 Moon Stone Madness

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $29,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

2 Secret Memo – Like the turn back in distance from route to sprint; taking the biggest class drop in racing too.

4 Miss Sweet Afleet – Was well bet in debut and raced evenly; suspect should improve first time out for a price tag.

Long Shot – 7 Shand

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $53,000, Optional claiming $62,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 All On the Table – Horses that ran at Fairplex are doing well early in the Santa Anita meet; key could be recent fitness.

6 Graser – Tepid chalk among many tough races on the card; first time down the hillside, cuts back in distance.

Long Shot – 1 Caribaya Queen

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds

1 What’s for Dinner – Second time out for George Lopez; he’s done well with claims and placing them correctly.

8 Put It There – Takes a huge class drop for Vladimir Cerin; should have a big shot on that factor alone.

Long Shot – 9 Bwana Be Gone

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $47,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

13 Special Charm – Has a tough parking lot post, but the ability to overcome it; like that Rafael Bejarano takes the call.

9 Bromelia – Flattered when Perfecta won next time out; tactical speed to sit a good trip and grind late.

Long Shot – 2 Eileen’s Dream

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $28,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

8 Awe’Some Kitten – Nearly overcame a poor start to win a Fairplex stakes last out; major improvement off the claim by Peter Miller.

4 Adelta – Flattered when Sweet Saturday won next time; big rider switch to Rafael Bejarano can’t hurt, except the odds.

Long Shot -7 Jesse’s Giacomo

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $50,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

3 In the Stars – Brazilian star was a tad short in her U.S. debut; figures to be tighter today for Richard Mandella.

6 Creditcardroulette – Suspect can show improvement under Garrett Gomez; he is riding first call in SoCal for Tom Proctor.

Long Shot – 4 Mary Fildes

Race 8 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

11 Blessed to Excess – Her edge is taking a steep class drop to face easier; did a pop and stop in debut.

6 Medio Ciego – Thrice beaten favorite facing the slowest group of her career; she may be going to Phoenix soon with another loss.

Long Shot – 1 Crystal Coast

Best Bet – 8 Awe’Some Kitten (race 6)

Santa Anita Thursday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 14/2/$7.00; Long Shots, 8/3/$24.40; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
