HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile, Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, 4-year-olds and up

Oceanography – Beaten favorite finds himself in an easier spot today; small consolation if they don’t race again today.

Any Kind of Storm – Did a long range pop and stop last time, now gets reunited with Joel Rosario; room to rebound.

Long Shot – Kalookan Boss

Race 2 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $24,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

Warrior’s Vow – Keeps sliding down the claiming ladder; also Gomez remains loyal despite a stinker last time out.

Arroyo Trabuco – Draw a line thru the last turf race and he looks very competitive with these; tactical speed to sit a trip.

Long Shot – Catch That Thief

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, 4-year-olds and up

Waveland Avenue – Looked green and lost early in his debut, then exploded in the stretch run; small improvement can win it.

Union Scale – FTS from the Sadler barn has been drawing rave reviews in the a.m.; caveat is the barn seldom wins with FTS.

Long Shot – Fiery Trippi

Race 4 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $26,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Colominas – Turf Paradise invader has a strong enough resume where she is not outclassed; price tag screams win or else.

Blushing Bear Cat – Mid-priced pick for the forgiving handicappers; claimed by Spawr as a beaten chalk, room to rebound.

Long Shot – Topper’s Gold

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

In the Woods – Did everything but win last time in a gutsy effort; big rider switch to Bejarano for the money shot.

Street Boss – Solis back riding for his main man Bruce Headley; dead late closer should do better in a elongated sprint.

Long Shot – Buc Spartan

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $36,000, Maiden claiming $100,000, 3-year-olds

Haggis Macpherson – Dropping in class from this MSW to a high maiden claimer; note who beat him, Gayego and Hoods Up.

Recoil – Been second in 2-of-3 starts, may be knocking on the door; tactical speed to sit a nice trip throughout.

Long Shot – Stanford Gold

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, $75,000 Paseana Handicap, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Grain of Truth – No shame chasing wild winner Romance Is Diane in the Bayakoa; like the switch to hot riding Bejarano.

Monashee – Emerald shipper loves to win, 17-of-23 lifetime; has good early speed but will get tested for class today.

Long Shot – Fonce De

Race 8 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds

Unbroken Vow – Better than looked try in last, Nakatani could get him over the hump; good wide open race for the High Five.

Razor Cut – A lot of FTS could show action on the tote board; has nine career starts, but gets his first try under Talamo.

Long Shot – Unique Effort

Best Bet – In the Woods (race 5)

Santa Anita Friday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 12/5/$31.20; Long Shots, 7/2/$25.60; Best Bet, 1/1/$9.00

Santa Anita Totals – 130/33/$239.20; Long Shots, 67/12/$125.20; Best Bets, 8/3/$18.00
