Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $50,000, Maiden special weights, 4-year-olds and up

Oceanography – Beaten favorite three straight races; he ran spotty in last, his best stride inside the final furlong.

Go All In – Will save all the ground inside for Espinoza; he is a grinder who doesn’t figure to change his stripes now.

Long Shot – Kalookan Boss

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Claiming $62,500, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Sunset Tijuana – Favored over many of these in last and ran just awful; claimed by Mitchell, Gomez stays on, interesting.

Highland Torree – Sharp win in last, would not be shocked if she goes off as the favorite; best stride will come late.

Long Shot – Casino Kay

Race 3 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 3-year-olds

B R’s Girl – Was scratched Saturday to run in this softer spot; Pletcher adds blinkers on and Gomez remains loyal.

Great Thought – FTS from the Frankel barn, she is bred to run through a brick wall; like that he hires Bejarano.

Long Shot – Wicked Delight

Race 4 – 7 furlongs, Purse $22,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies, 4-year-olds

Blushing Bear Cat – May have gotten to the lead too soon in last; Spawr slides her down in class another notch, tough here.

Stress Free – Claimed by one of the hottest barns at the meet, Gary Stute; he takes the blinkers off, she could wake up.

Long Shot – Toppers Moment

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $38,000, Claiming $40,000, Fillies, 4-year-olds

Debie Ginsburg – She drops to the lowest class level of her career; this is also her first turf try, she’s a square price.

Foxy Games – Tepid chalk just failed to hold on in last for Paulo Lobo; has tactical speed aided by the turf rail out 30 feet.

Long Shot – Justice Is Brief

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $32,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Princess Amelie – She didn’t handle the turf too well last time; returns to Cushion Track-Pro Ride where she won her MSW.

River Glow – She’s been away 11-months, but Gaines does fine off a long layoff; Gomez climbs on board, sits for one run.

Long Shot – Monkey Face

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $52,000, Allowance, 4-year-olds and up

Faulkwood Shores – Speedball was claimed by Carava and protected in this allowance race; aided by the turf rail out 30 feet.

Congo King – Logical chalk ran over the top of the field down the hillside turf course in last; will see another quick pace.

Long Shot – Switzerland

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

Benchmark Kid – Like the turn back in distance from an elongated sprint for this; flattered when Nitro Active won next out.

Syndicator – Claimed by John Sadler who hires the red-hot Bejarano to ride; was well bet in debut, could easily improve.

Long Shot – Ricky El Corredor

Best Bet – Benchmark Kid (race 8)

Santa Anita Sunday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 18/2/$14.40; Long Shots, 9/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 718/163/$1,201.80; Long Shots, 356/47/$604.00; Best Bets, 39/12/$51.20
