Horse racing, Santa Anita

Updated Santa Anita picks for Sunday, March 16

FIRST RACE: 1. Misdeed, 2. Supreme Commander, 3. Aqua Revelation. LONG SHOT: Next Right.


SECOND RACE: 1. Seattle Charlie, 2. Katerrific, 3. Wasted at Midnight. LONG SHOT: Courageous Call.


THIRD RACE: 1. Miss American Pie (best bet), 2. Awe’ Some Kitten, 3. Tempe. LONG SHOT: Valarta.

Trainer Mark Glatt has been on fire lately, hitting on all cylinders. He claimed this lightly raced 4-year-old filly MISS AMERICAN PIE out of an even effort, going shorter last time. She goes longer and moves up in class plus Glatt is 32% first off the claim. Jockey Tyler Baze takes the mount and he has been riding well lately, too.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Holiday N Newport, 2. Magic Number, 3. Thermal Nermal (SCRATCHED). LONG SHOT: She’s a Go Girl. New order: 1. Holiday N Newport, 2. Magic Number, 3. She’s a Go Girl. LONG SHOT: Sky Angel.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Lil Swiss Echo, 2. Mark of a Gem, 3. Noise of the Crowd. LONG SHOT: Warren’s Dixi Bell.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Warrens Puppy Love, 2. Warrens Lil Margie, 3. Marla Hooch. LONG SHOT: Pay the Debt.

There’s a first time for everything and that’s what we’re hoping for here. Trainer Dean Pederson is 0-for-7 first off the claim, but jockey Joe Talamo sees fit to ride this 3-year-old filly WARRENS PUPPY LOVE despite the fact he also rode two others in this race last time. The daughter of Mongol Warrior has tactical speed and should relish the 7 furlongs.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Emollient, 2. Topic, 3. Floral Romance. LONG SHOT: Stormy Lucy.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Cool Samurai (SCRATCHED), 2. El Nino Terrible, 3. Papa Turf. LONG SHOT: Friendswith K Mill. New order: 1. The Admiral, 2. El Nino Terrible, 3. Papa Turf. LONG SHOT: True Ten.


NINTH RACE: 1. Koast, 2. Mr. Bossy Pants (SCRATCHED), 3. Kilat. LONG SHOT: Candy’s Sunrise. New order: 1. Koast, 2. Kilat, 3. Candy’s Sunrise. LONG SHOT: Carbonite.
