Horse racing: Today at Santa Anita, September 27

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $31,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

3 Wooram – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; like the Vann Belvoir barn, facing a modest group.

7 Condition – Flattered when chasing a next out winner in career debut; young horses typically will improve for good trainers.

Long Shot – 4 Guyfromtheskyfive

Race 2 – 7 furlongs, Purse $32,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds

1 Red N Black Attack – Ran a gutsy second last time out; like the cut back in distance where he could finish stronger tonight.

4 Sudden Rumor – Nice win under the tutelege of Philip D’Amato; he is one of the real good young trainers on the SoCal scene.

Long Shot – 9 Hidden Zensation

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $58,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

7 Bettys Bambino – Outside posts down the hillside turf course are a positive, not a negative; tactical speed to attack the pace early.

4 Heat Flash – Shortens up in distance, you know from reading these that I love that handicapping angle; will be flying late in the lane.

Long Shot – 5 Conquest Two Step

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

9 Fame and Power – Bob Baffert is opening up the envelope for this meet; he didn’t show his strongest hand down at Del Mar.

11 Madiba – The team of Rafael Bejarano and Jerry Hollendorfer is always dangerous; parking lot post to stalk the early speed.

Long Shot – 2 Kantune

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles, $300,000 Zenyatta, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

4 Beholder – The Zenyatta goes thru her; the only horse that can beat her is herself if she shows signs of rust or isn’t tight enough.

2 Iotapa – She absolutely adores the Santa Anita oval; of course, it’s brand new El Segundo sand, so it is quite a bit different.

Long Shot -1 Tiz Midnight

Race 6 – 1 1/16th miles, $300,000 Frontrunner, 2-year-olds

7 American Pharoah – His Del Mar Futurity win was one of the best 2-YO races we’ve seen all summer; going 2-turns and dirt are unknowns.

2 Lord Nelson – Bob Baffert has a strong uncoupled entry in here; this one was held out since a chalky debut MSW win at Del Mar.

Long Shot – 8 Conquest Panthera

Race 7 – 1 1/4 miles (turf), $300,000 Rodeo Drive, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Irish Mission – Among 3 east coast invaders attacking a weak west coast distaff turf division; from top trainer Christophe Clement.

13 Miss Serendipity – Will try to defend the honor of the West Coast turf distaffers; her Yellow Ribbon win was a thing of beauty.

Long Shot – 1 Cozze Up Lady

Race 8 – 1 1/8th miles, $300,000 Awesome Again, 3-year-olds and up

4 Shared Belief – Amazing run of wins plus a weaking of the handicap division; his road is clear to win the Horse of the Year title.

1 Fed Biz – No more holding back for the Bob Baffert barn; these are the key races to get his troops ready for the Breeders’ Cup.

Long Shot – 6 Majestic Harbor

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), $75,000 Unzip Me, Fillies, 3-year-olds

8 Stars Above Me – Graham Motion has the confidence to ship her west after a trouble trip in last; uses a local rider in Elvis Trujillo.

4 On the Backstreets – She has won 3-of-4 down the hill so that speaks volumes; sight unseen since May, so at the minimum is fresh.

Long Shot – 3 Alexis Tangier

Race 10 – 1 1/16th miles, $300,000 Chandelier, 2-year-olds

4 Angela Renee – Her Spinaway loss on paper looks ugly, 19 lengths; the track was soup that day and she can be forgiven for the loss.

2 Conquest Eclipse – Was highly regarded in debut MSW win at Churchill; was overlooked at 14/1 in the Debutante and ran very well.

Long Shot – 11 Majestic Presence

Race 11 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $56,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

7 Papacoolpapacool – Hasn’t gotten bet yet, but hasn’t run a bad race either; figures to be a short price exiting the Oak Tree Juvenile.

2 Nakamoto – Has shown steady improvement in all three career starts; big rider switch to Kent Desormeaux for the money shot.

Long Shot – 9 Dream It Do It

Best Bet – 4 Shared Belief (race 8)

Santa Anita Friday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/4/$21.00; Long Shots, 8/1/$7.80; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.20

Santa Anita Totals – 16/4/$21.00; Long Shots, 8/1/$7.80; Best Bets, 1/1/$3.20

SIMULCAST PLAY OF THE DAY – #1 Palace (2/1) in race 8 at Belmont Park. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Friday, Bemata ran out at Belmont Park. Stats – 149/86/$810.70; Follow him on Twitter: @richeng4propick
