Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita picks for Sunday, Feb. 2 (updated)

Remember first post is 11 a.m. and there are only eight races due to the Super Bowl.

FIRST RACE: 1. Take a Risk, 2. Mahogany Run, 3. Qatar’s Pearl. LONG SHOT: I Buy Gold.


SECOND RACE: 1. Lake Maracaibo, 2. Intoxicating Move, 3. Amanda. LONG SHOT: Real Bright Boots.


THIRD RACE: 1. Visions of Candy, 2. Putahexonher, 3. Sheza Eyeopener. LONG SHOT: Room for Me.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Secret Circle, 2. Sahara Sky, 3. Wild Dude. LONG SHOT: Majestic Stride.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Majestic Gem, 2. Strollin Home, 3. Moscato Girl. LONG SHOT: New Nature.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Te Rapa, 2. Olympic Blue, 3. Yomybato. LONG SHOT: Tiz Dynamic.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Footbridge, 2. Secretsatmidnight, 3. Cat Burglar. LONG SHOT: Got Even (scratched) new longshot: Seeking the West.

This allowance race is loaded with young, talented horses and it’s loaded with speed horses. Therefore, we are going with FOOTBRIDGE, a 4-year-old colt, which we hope will come from off the pace for Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith. The son of Street Cry broke his maiden over this surface and trainer Eoin Harty is 28% going from turf to dirt.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Unusually Green (best bet), 2. Prospector Alley, 3. Bodrum. LONG SHOT: :ucky Jack.

UNUSUALLY GREEN, a 3-year-old colt, has had trouble getting out of the gate in three career races. Hopefully, the son of Unusual Heat will take to the turf like most of his siblings. Jockey Joe Talamo takes over a colt that has improved each time out.
