6 Blonde Fog – Been away nearly a year and finds a soft spot for return; part of an uncoupled entry for Bob Baffert.

3 Playful Humor – Took 10 tries to graduate, but sometimes they learn to like the feeling; won dirt debut like a good thing.

Long Shot – 4 What a Spot

Race 2 – 1 mile, Purse $54,000, Optional claiming $62,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Warren’s Veneda – Craig Lewis hasn’t been heard from much this year; he still trains for the Warren clan, a California staple.

2 Changethechannel – Good third off a 10-month hiatus; figures to improve a step in second start off the layoff.

Long Shot – 1 Silver Hustler

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, $70,000 Anoakia, Fillies, 2-year-olds

2 Spring Moon – Good looking debut winner for Bob Baffert at Del Mar; she may not want to go far, but she’ll go fast.

4 Bajan – May have been overmatched in the Del Mar Debutante; this is a lighter group, though the Baffert duo looks tough.

Long Shot – E Equalsmcsquared

9 Joeandbett’sbaby – Claimed by Doug O’Neill and spotted nicely to win first out; like that he hires Rafael Bejarano too.

6 Calameera – From small barn of Richard Baltas, but he is very capable; shown improvement with all four career starts.

Long Shot – 2 Spacecoast

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

2 Contrasting – Fast working debut starter for Bob Baffert; it only seems like he has 100 talented 2-YOs in his barn.

7 Salsita – Typical green debut, slow early but fast late; dangerous if shows even one step of improvement for Peter Miller.

Long Shot – 5 Wild Caroline

Race 6 – 6 1/2 furlongs (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $48,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

10 Lake Maracaibo – Shown enough ability to run second 4 times in 6 starts; she’s either overdue or maybe just a nibbler.

7 Indygo F M A – Shipped up to NoCal in last but was a stride late; has finished in the money in 6 of 8 career starts.

Long Shot – 2 Majestic Wonder

Race 7 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Claiming $10,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Half Dome Dude – Hard fought third in a much improved effort last time; he’s found the bottom, but he’s competitive here.

1 Ol’ Steely Blue – NoCal invader isn’t facing much in here; tactical speed to sit a trip and save all the ground.

Long Shot – 5 Bertran Hill

Race 8 – 1 mile (turf, rail at 15 feet), Purse $51,000, Optional claiming $25,000, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Journey On – Doug O’Neill doesn’t use Martin Pedroza much, but when he does he’s lethal; speed and the rail out 15 feet today.

Long Shot – 12 Toomanytomatoes

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

9 Warren’s Cliff S. – Four of his last five starts have been pretty productive; elongated sprint is a good distance for him.

8 Kingsbury – Miserable run last time off a 5-month hiatus; his prior Santa Anita races are competitive with these.

Long Shot – 5 Ice Cream Truck

Best Bet – 1 Journey On (race 8)

Santa Anita Saturday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 19/3/$27.20; Long Shots, 9/2/$16.40; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
