HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA

By Richard Eng

Post Time 11:05 a.m.

Race 1 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Ramsgate – Third start off a 16-month hiatus could be his best; appears to be rounding into top form.

Guns On The Table – Logical chalk had a rough stretch trip in last; can high-5 the public from post 14.

Long Shot – Five Star Thief

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Carrie With a C – Small edge in another difficult race; her races are fast enough to win, but she’s no cinch.

Silk Thunder – Returns to SoCal, the scene of her better races; she may be a synthetic track specialist.

Long Shot – Surfer Girl

Race 3 – 7 furlongs, $1-million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Ventura – Love the turn back angle from routes to this elongated sprint; Gomez will come flying fast late.

Indian Blessing – Next to Zenyatta, she’ll be the shortest odds chalk; not as proven on synthetic as others.

Long Shot – Intangaroo

Race 4 – 1 mile (turf), $1-million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Consequence – Phipps filly has the best turf pedigree in the field; two educational races has her prime for this.

Laragh – Logical chalk won wire to wire at Keeneland in last; crushed the favorite Habaya in the Jessamine.

Long Shot – Sugar Mom

Race 5 – 1 1/16th miles, $2-million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Sky Diva – Has won both her starts in a common gallop; no telling how good she’ll be, beat good ones in last.

Stardom Bound – Big favorite has one fault to be aware of; her gate manners are awful, gets left behind early.

Long Shot – Dream Empress

Race 6 – 1 1/4 miles (turf), $2-million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Halfway to Heaven – Could be the first of multiple Euros to win today; tactical speed to sit close to the pace.

Forever Together – She is one of the most improved horses the last 90 days; has a powerful late closing kick.

Long Shot – Pure Clan

Race 7 – 1 1/8th miles, $2-million Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Zenyatta – This is what a real champion looks like; like all the great ones, she can move early if she must.

Music Note – If she hadn’t lost a head bob in the Alabama, her odds would be lower; she’s a special filly too.

Long Shot – Cocoa Beach

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf), $250,000 Las Palmas Handicap, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Black Mamba – Gets big time class relief from grade 1 stakes for this; saves all the ground under Gomez.

Lemon Chiffon – Mare has strong turf experience and appears in top form; offers a lot of value at 10/1 odds.

Long Shot – Valbenny

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, Purse $85,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

Six Pack Abs – Sadler has an uncoupled entry in here; off a big win, proven he does not need the lead to succeed.

Doppio – Synthetic surface specialist also loves elongated sprints; will do his best turning for home.

Long Shot – Becrux

Race 10 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $75,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Esporte Dos Reis – His last two races are both better than looked; saves ground and comes grinding fast late.

Parc des Princes – Speedball should be able to cut his own fractions; tries Pro-Ride for the first time.

Long Shot – Vulcan

Best Bet – Zenyatta (race 7)

Santa Anita Thursday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 15/2/$16.80; Long Shots, 7/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 388/91/$644.80; Long Shots, 189/25/$312.00; Best Bets, 22/7/$30.20
