EIGHTH RACE: 1. Sooo Major (bets bet), 2. Ke in Motion, 3. Polished Silver. LONG SHOT: Voluntary. 

This 3-year-old SOOO MAJOR has run second twice at this level and here he gets a jockey switch to Joe Talamo. The gelding is also cutting back from 7 furlongs, which means he might be fitter in the lane. Trainer Dan Hendricks is 23% with maiden claimers and 38% with Talamo at Santa Anita.
