Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita picks for Sunday, Jan. 19 (No changes)

FIRST RACE: 1. She’s a Go Girl, 2. Evasive Charmer, 3. Woodlandsway. LONG SHOT: Goldilocks Planet.


SECOND RACE: 1. Moonlight Stroll, 2. Browsing, 3. Mudge. LONG SHOT: Drink M. Pretty.


THIRD RACE: 1. Salsita, 2. Shared Image, 3. Adios Pelota. LONG SHOT: La Casadora.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Pearl de Vere, 2. Small Moves, 3. Zuzu’s Petals. LONG SHOT: Miranda Rose.


FIFTH RACE: 1. My Gi Gi, 2. Flashy Ways, 3. Indecise. LONG SHOT: Wittgenstein.

After running 11 staraight graded stakes races, MY GI GI, a 5-year-old mare, finally gets some class relief, dropping down into an allowance race. Leading jockey Rafael Bejarano jumps back on her and hopefully there is a fast pace up front that she can run at.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Dirty Blonde, 2. Midnight Dream, 3. Honey Ride. LONG SHOT: Rambunchkie.

This is one tough 3-year-old maiden special filly race. I couldn’t talk you out of almost any horse. If you like someone with a price, go for it.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Bosserette (best bet), 2. On the Backstreets, 3. As Rulers Go. LONG SHOT: Diamond Stilettos.

Broke her maiden coming down the hill just like today, which gives BOSSERETTE a leg up on the rest of this field. Ran an OK race at Hollywood Park sprinting on the turf, but this is her game. Has a big work coming into the race. ON THE BACKSTREETS dropping from stakes company earlier in the year, had time to grow up and beside, I’m a Springsteen fan.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Ondine, 2. Fiftyshadesofhay, 3. Broken Sword. LONG SHOT: Oscar Party.


NINTH RACE: 1. Four Better, 2. Promiscuoussuances, 3. Sleep Tight. LONG SHOT: Angel’s Moon.
