HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $21,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Cal-breds, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Word Association – Close calls the last 3 starts as a beaten favorite; subtle class drop helps, main foe to her inside.

Warren’s Moon – Change of tactics last time when almost won wire to wire; not sure if she’ll lead or follow tonight.

Long Shot – Dubai Macau Girl

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $32,000, Claiming $40,000, 4-year-olds

Remus – Like the parking lot post down the hillside turf course; Rafael Bejarano will sit a trip and fire fast late.

Lamm – Chalk just missed last time in a top effort; like the turn back in distance, best stride should come late.

Long Shot – Gotmymojoworkin

Race 3 – 1 mile, Purse $20,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

Major General – Expect more value with Chantal Sutherland replacing Rafael Bejarano; the real key is Mike Mitchell.

Warren’s Tony R. – Rafael Bejarano has been riding for Jorge Gutierrez; sliding down the claiming ladder to this lower level.

Long Shot – Bandeira Union

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $46,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

Keen Bidder – English import comes from the hot James Lloyd barn; like that Garrett Gomez has been riding for the stable.

Lucks Mine – Speedball tactics should put a bull’s eye on his back; the turf rail out 15 feet can only help his cause.

Long Shot – Farmer Giles

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $11,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Havens Lake – Only starter to have won her last start; repeat effort is good enough to beat these too.

Princess Susan M – Second start off a 2-month hiatus; sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low class.

Long Shot – Company Secret

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $44,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds

Warrens Paddockguy – Ran fast enough last time to crush this group if he repeats himself; sure to be lower than 5/2 odds.

Speedy Marini – FTS from Eric Kruljac who can pop a sprinter or two; bred to be fast and has top gate rider Mike Smith.

Long Shot – Bold Type

Race 7 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $62,500, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Eclair de Lune – Highly regarded filly immediately becomes the best horse in Ron McAnally barn; she needs to make a statement.

Welken – The favorite is in top, but doesn’t have the back class of some others; improved since claimed by Mike Mitchell.

Long Shot – Damaniyat Girl

Race 8 – 7 furlongs, Purse $15,000, Maiden claiming $15,000, 4-year-olds and up

Casa O – Did everything but win in his debut; John Sadler adds blinkers on, improves one step and he’ll graduate.

Prince Novetti – He has had 11 chances, but never before with Garrett Gomez; had some hidden trouble in last.

Long Shot – Who’s Your Widady

Best Bet – Eclair de Lune (race 7)

Santa Anita Wednesday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/5/$33.60; Long Shots, 8/1/$9.40; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 886/224/$1,494.20; Long Shots, 439/70/$741.80; Best Bets, 53do /18/$88.60
