Post Time 1:20 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $17,000, Claiming $12,500, 4-year-olds and up

King Palm – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this new career low; the Maloof brothers have given up on this 7-YO.

Chadlington – Nondescript opener to a key card with a pick 6 carryover of $555k; today’s the day to shoot for the moon.

Long Shot – Courtly Jazz

Race 2 – 4 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Call Aly – Dropped into a claimer after two good efforts in a row; suspect Walther Solis expects no claim tags in here.

Ravin Maniac – Wesley Ward usually dominated the baby drag races at Santa Anita, but not this year; expect a lot of support.

Long Shot – I Catherine

Race 3 – 4 1/2 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Atka – You’ll have a big edge over me, you’ll see the tote board action on the many FTS; a Mike Harrington Swiss Yodeler.

Glitter City – Morning line favorite from the Jeff Mullins barn; remember that the outside posts are a hindrance here.

Long Shot – Listisimo

Race 4 – 1 1/8th miles, Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

Matty’s G Force – Ran a winning race last time for this class; Mike Mitchell barn was winless the first week of the meet.

Cambridge Blue – Bobby Frankel babies typically improve with experience; the Mig’s business has picked up nearing Derby time.

Long Shot – Dakota Phone

Race 5 – 6 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $51,000, Optional claiming $80,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Love Happens – Aggressive move by Mike Mitchell to bump her up to $80k off a loss; suspect he knows a lot more than we do.

Mini Do – Tepid chalk in another wide open race; she finally broke her MSW and sometimes that’s all it takes to get them going.

Long Shot – Wickednwackyingrid

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Ann’s Plan – Edge to Jeff Mullins in a real dart throw of a race; the rail can be difficult, but I expect Baze to take back.

Perfect Rhyme – Art Sherman gets a free shot here off a 1-year sabbatical; mare has a ton of back class and lots of speed.

Long Shot – Angel Eyed

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $53,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds

Madeo – He broke his MSW for John Shirreffs like he’s meant to be a very good one; stretches out around 2-turns today.

Coast Guard – Logical chalk ran a dead game third in the Santa Anita Derby; horses with less credentials are in Louisville.

Long Shot – Winsome Charm

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $44,000, Claiming $62,500, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Snow Delicious – Did not run badly in her turf debut last time; Doug O’Neill switches to one of his main men, Michael Baze.

Rapid Goose – Ran very well in grass debut off the claim by John Sadler; stretches out around 2-turns, could be closing late.

Long Shot – Amybelle

Best Bet – Snow Delicious (race 8)

Hollywood Sunday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 19/5/$50.40; Long Shots, 9/1/$6.20; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Hollywood Totals – 84/26/$188.20; Long Shots, 43/3/$32.20; Best Bets, 5/2/$7.20
