HORSE RACING

TODAY AT SANTA ANITA PARK

By Richard Eng

Post Time 12:30 p.m.

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

Black Jack Attack – Ran a miserable race last time off the claim by Mitchell; chance to redeem on the class big drop.

Political Maneuver – Speedball got torched last time like a meteor passing thru the atmosphere; slower pace will help.

Long Shot – Ghostrapper

Race 2 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $57,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Costume – Would not be shocked to see Frankel win multiple races on the card; filly gets big time class relief facing these.

Carmel Coffee – She would be undefeated except for a super filly named Zenyatta; has pedigree to make turf debut a good one.

Long Shot – Seven Steps

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, $250,000 Santa Maria Handicap, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Tough Tiz’s Sis – She finally doesn’t have to face a heavyweight; draw a line thru the BC Distaff and her resume looks good.

Dawn After Dawn – Was well meant in the El Encino, when her saddle slipped under Gomez; chance to rebound at a square price.

Long Shot – Double Trouble

Race 4 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

Soothing Touch – Like the turn back in distance for going down the hillside course; might be the day to put it all together.

Burnt – You’ll know better than me if this filly is taking a lot of action; Frankel has been patient and she has pedigree.

Long Shot – Pegasus Lady

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

Renagade Ruby – I don’t typically pick MSW graduates facing winners, but she was impressive; tactical speed to sit a trip.

Tizzy’s Tune – Has lost two gut wrenching decisions in a row, albeit a year apart; should be fully mature to step forward.

Long Shot – Lochinvar’s Gold

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

Rate of Exchange – No exaggeration she would have won by 5-lengths if not bothered in the lane; figures to get way overbet.

Decorator – Made a late move inside to just miss; was able to avoid the trouble that affected many others in the race.

Long Shot – Interior Design

Race 7 – 1 mile, $250,000 Las Virgenes, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Lovely Isle – She was sent to Frankel after an pathetic try at Gulfstream; she’s better than that and well see why in here.

Golden Doc A – She’s not spectacular, but a grinder who seldom runs a bad race; chance to get a big piece at the very end.

Long Shot – Grace Anatomy

Race 8 – 1 1/8th miles, $250,000 San Antonio Handicap, 4-year-olds and up

Student Council – Would be ultra confident in him if not for the break in training at SA; proved he was legitimate last fall.

Awesome Gem – He’s a very nice horse but with a tendency to finish second in big races; showed he likes the synthetic surfaces.

Long Shot – Rathor

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf), Purse $52,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 4-year-olds and up

Mast Track – Flattered by Monterrey Jazz continuing his winning ways; dead late closer should relish rallying down the hill.

Specalist Morgen J – Chance to redeem himself at a square price; don’t mind the parking lot post going down the hillside course.

Long Shot – Switzerland

Race 10 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds

Quityerbellyaching – Didn’t run much off the claim by Sadler; his debut was good, he’s dropped in class and Bejarano takes over.

Bad Big Al – Another taking the biggest class drop in racing, from MSW to maiden claiming; need not be much to compete in here.

Long Shot – Crimson Dynamo

Best Bet – Tough Tiz’s Sis (race 3)

Santa Anita Saturday- Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 22/4/$16.80; Long Shots, 11/1/$9.80; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Santa Anita Totals – 374/91/$653.80; Long Shots, 192/28/$329.80; Best Bets, 22/9/$37.60
