Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita picks for Monday, Jan. 20 (updated)

FIRST RACE: 1. Sister Glady Oh La, 2. Gittel, 3. Holiday N Newport. LONG SHOT: Fiesta Express.

SISTER GLADY OH LA gave an even effort sprinting in her return to the races last month and now she gets to do what she wants: route. She has won three times at this distance, granted it was in Northern California, but she has a nose for the finish line.


SECOND RACE: 1. Indianapolis, 2. Beach Hut, 3. Papa Turf. LONG SHOT: Elmonte Cristo (SCRATCHED). New long shot: Rockin Home.


THIRD RACE: 1. Chief Lion, 2. San Onofre, 3. Brokered. LONG SHOT: Got Even.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Bury Pacer, 2. Closet E, 3. Big Medicine Man. LONG SHOT: Cowtownmary.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Senator Bob, 2. Dunmore East, 3. Zuboff. LONG SHOT: Half Dome Dude.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Dixieland Blues, 2. Koast (SCRATCHED), 3. Relentless Heat. LONG SHOT: Insideondoutside. Mew order: 1. Dixieland Blues, 2. Relentless Heat, 3. Macias. LONG SHOT: Insideondoutside.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Cause Ur My Babe, 2. Capers N Wine, 3. Magic Spot. LONG SHOT: Sixy Eddie.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Pulpit’s Express, 2. Major Truth, 3. Pulla Train. LONG SHOT: Wings of Mojave.


NINTH RACE: 1. Singleinthelast (best bet), 2. Katy’s Plum, 3. Grammy Times Six. LONG SHOT: Mean Emma Jean.

Trainer Eric Kruljac drops SINGLEINTHELAST into a maiden claimer for the first time and he’s 30% with that move. On top of that he puts apprentice Drayden Vandyke aboard so look for a send job from the outside post and she should have enough speed to clear.
