Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita picks for Thursday, April 10

FIRST RACE: 1. Road Ready, 2. Newfound Gold, 3. Trucial State. LONG SHOT: El Pitucon.


SECOND RACE: 1. Mum, 2. Dancinginthestreet, 3. Courageous Call. LONG SHOT: Tiz Champ.


THIRD RACE: 1. Honduran, 2. Seeking the West, 3. Footbridge. LONG SHOT: Perfect Set.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Ryleigh Ruler, 2. Wild Optimism, 3. Betty Bing Bing. LONG SHOT: New Nature.

RYLEIGH RULER, a daughter of Roman Ruler, might have won her career debut at Del Mar last summer except for a poor start. She returns here and obviously trainer Robertino Diodoro knows how to get one ready to run, especially after a long layoff (30%).


FIFTH RACE: 1. Ambitoness, 2. Smart N Dreamy, 3. Spiced Latte. LONG SHOT: Miss American Pie.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Neurosurgeon, 2. Slight Edge, 3. Storm Bird. LONG SHOT: Grey is Best.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Mark of a Gem, 2. Tiz a Kiss, 3. Tribal Chatter. LONG SHOT: Noise of the Crowd.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Even Echo (best bet), 2. Warrensgoldenyears, 3. Wicked Heat. LONG SHOT: Fuzzy Logic.

Yes, this 3-year-old colt, EVEN ECHO, was favored last time in the drop to the maiden claiming ranks, but we’re willing to give another shot. Look who he has lost races to in the last few races: Hoppertunity, Shared Belief, Enterprising. Maybe this is the day he outclasses the field.
