HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Threat – Logical chalk is clearly the one to beat; big class drop, tactical speed to sit a perfect trip.

Thankfully – Interesting barn switch to the clever Art Sherman; note the faster works, big rider change.

Long Shot – Judy Patootie

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $24,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 2-year-olds

Dashwood – Gets class relief from a state-bred stakes for this; Steve Knapp likes to drop down and win.

Tahoe Kid – Have to respect a live runner from the hot John Sadler barn; tactical speed to stalk the speed.

Long Shot – Beau Gris

Race 3 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $46,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Ditto This – Dead late closer making his third start off a 2-month hiatus; in good hands with Julio Canani.

Ochoa – Ran last time like he needed the race, his first in 8-months; ground saving trip, should improve.

Long Shot – Ellie L.

Race 4 – 6 furlongs, Purse $14,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Alex’s Wish – Ran like a short horse in last off a 11-month hiatus; class relief and tighter condition.

Con Corazon – She has a much cheaper resume, but has run two good figures; she’ll be tested for class.

Long Shot – Golden Venture

Race 5 – 1 mile, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds

Drewthegentleman – Stretching out in distance for the first time in a while; hated Fairplex, should rebound.

Summer Shoot – Dead late closer can benefit from a quick early pace; she’ll be closing fast late.

Long Shot – Younique Cat

Race 6 – 1 mile, Purse $16,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Teacher’s Rule – Interesting NoCal shipper from top trainer Terry Knight; tactical speed to attend the pace.

Dances With Tigers – Logical chalk has found a nice style of sitting midpack and grinding in the stretch.

Long Shot – Queen Holly

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $50,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

Wiredfortwotwenty – Speedball will be aided by the turf rail out 30 feet; not sure who wants to duel early.

Carrilero – Could be the best closer in the race if it falls apart late; like the outside post to maneuver.

Long Shot – Easy On The Eye

Race 8 – 1 mile, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Coco M – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; expect her best today.

Sarah’s Melody – Another taking a big class drop to face many slowpokes; dangerous if she draws in.

Long Shot – Daniella Roth

Best Bet – Wiredfortwotwenty (race 7)
