Horse Racing: Today at Santa Anita, Jan. 16

Post Time 1 p.m.

Race 1 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $56,000, Maiden Special Weights, 4-year-olds and up

2 Presenceofagenius – Gary Stevens takes over for Edwin Maldonado; figures to get overbet with Hall of Famer up.

3 Incline Village – Hate to see Kayla Stra lose the ride to Joe Talamo; she is riding as well as anyone in the SA jock’s room.

Long Shot – 5 China Girl Lover

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds

2 Maximinus – Won nicely in last first race for a price tag; facing winners for the first time, always a major class rise.

4 Horse Laugh – Gutsy win under the bugboy Nicholas who is out injured; gets another bugboy, Vandyke, who pulls 10 pounds.

Long Shot – 3 Tosheen

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $30,000, Optional claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds

2 Hobbits Hero – Claimed by Jeff Mullins whose barn if off to a hot start; morning line chalk, watch for the amount of support.

6 I Rock the Party – Turf Paradise invader makes his Arcadia debut; suspect will float up in odds as Phoenix horses will.

Long Shot – 1 Clouds Clearing

Race 4 – 1 1/8th miles, Purse $19,000, Claiming $10,000, 4-year-olds and up

2 Big Wags – How about this rider change from Tammy Piermarini to Rafael Bejarano; she’s a good rider, but it signals intent.

5 Graeme Crackerjack – Edwin Maldonado picks up Rafael Bejarano seconds here; this horse is love so don’t let that fool you.

Long Shot – 9 Go to the Pulpit

Race 5 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $40,000, Fillies, 4-year-olds

9 Burns Turn – Like the parking lot post down the hillside turf course; this is a big class drop to face much easier.

2 Happybirthdaybaby – Tepid chalk was claimed in last by the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer; well spotted, expect improvement.

Long Shot – 7 Travesura

Race 6 – 7 furlongs, Purse $23,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 3-year-olds

8 Anythingtogeteven – Anyone who reads my comments knows how much I like cutbacks; this one from a 2-turn mile for this.

3 Common Confusion – Has shown steady improvement and may be ready to finally graduate; ran well from parking lot post 12.

Long Shot – 2 Midnight Mayhem

Race 7 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 24 feet), Purse $58,000, Optional claiming $80,000, 3-year-olds

1 Toowindytohaulrox – Gets a big class drop from stakes for this O/C; hate the rail, but like the colt very much.

2 Street Icon – Exploded last time with a big race, first time in Jerry Hollendorfer barn; repeat race puts him right there.

Long Shot – 5 Bourne Hot

Race 8 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up

5 – Elegant in Silk – Sliding down the maiden claiming ladder to the bottom; won’t be long before Tyler Baze starts heating up.

11 Kid Rollins – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; need not be much in this fragile field.

Long Shot – 4 Sugar High Kaylin

Best Bet – 1 Toowindytohaulrox (race 7)
