HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 2 furlongs, Purse $36,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

Wise Mandate – Logical chalk lost to a sensational looking 2-YO, Sea of Pleasure; if he breaks OK, he figures to be awful tough to catch.

Soldier’s Creed – FTS from Headley barn has been working fast and often in the a.m.; Atkinson is capable and adds parimutuel value.

Long Shot – Leonardo C.S.

Race 2 – 2 furlongs, Purse $36,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Quite Beautiful – FTS from Stute has been working fast and has win early pedigree; interesting that Solis has taken the call.

Chatty Gal – Part of the favored entry from Dominguez, she was a beaten chalk last time out; barn rider Bautista opted for this half.

Long Shot – Redrounder

Race 3 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $55,000, Allowance, Cal-breds, 4-year-olds and up

Unusual Treasure – Has some early lick and a good post to utilize that; will be aided with the turf rail out 15 feet today.

Stephen Bruce – Dead late closer will need some early pace to become most effective; interesting rider switch, will help the price.

Long Shot – Ballistic Heat

Race 4 – 1 mile, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

Light of the World – O’Neill has been doing well with the new Tommy Town stable; Isais is their stable rider, not a typical O’Neill choice.

General Bueno – Many close but no cigar finishes in his brief career; like that eventual leading rider Espinoza chose to ride this one.

Long Shot – Star Nicholas

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $45,000, Claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds

Larry by the Lake – Ran a good turf race two back, let’s see if he can improve upon that; like the connections of Flores and Sadler.

Conclave – Speedy sort making his first start off the claim by Spawr; could have an edge in a paceless race if he grabs and easy lead.

Long Shot – Roosevelt

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $28,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

Victim of Love – Speedball claimed by Carava who must deal with the quick Olympic Miler to his inside; Baze rides this horse well.

Chauncey – Like the turn back in distance into a sprint which should have a very fast early pace; Isias will stalk and pounce late.

Long Shot – Celtic Fable

Race 7 – 7 furlongs, Purse $50,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds

Euroglide – Won one of the most impressive looking MSW races of the meeting; didn’t beat much, but did it in such facile fashion.

Robbos Courage – Was rushed back in second start going long after a solid debut MSW win; Dollase stepped back, adding blinkers on.

Long Shot – Pay the Vig

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Proud Cecy – Key is Espinoza exits others to ride this professional MSW; set fast fractions in last, should relax nicely back on sod.

Storming Slew – Dead late closer will be heard from screaming down the lane late; slow meet for Mulhall, but she is very capable.

Long Shot – Powerofvoodoo

Best Bet – Euroglide (race 7)

Santa Anita Wednesday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/4/$23.40; Long Shots, 8/1/$25.00; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 1,349/354/$2,308.40; Long Shots, 675/74/$1,020.80; Best Bets, 78/31/$125.20
