Santa Anita selections for Sunday, April 27 (updated)

FIRST RACE: 1. Sidebar, 2. Queen of the Hill, 3. Secret Genius. LONG SHOT: Lady Vivien.


SECOND RACE: 1. Sunny Kat, 2. Mal Verde, 3. Relative Time. LONG SHOT: La Jolla Cove.


THIRD RACE: 1. Time For Angie, 2. Julio’s Gold, 3. Vicki Victoria. LONG SHOT: Rhodium.

SIXTH RACE: 1. Bird In Love, 2. Miss Super Quick, 3. Burning Arch. LONG SHOT: Not to Shiny.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Shame On Alex (best bet), 2. Too Fast to Pass, 3. Life a Riley. LONG SHOT: Los Bambinos.

Trainer Ron Ellis brings this 5-year-old gelding SHAME ON ALEX back from Golden Gate, where he failed miserably. The son of Afleet Alex has a win and a third on the Santa Anita dirt. Speed jockey Edwin Maldonado gets aboard and he is 36% with Ellis. They won the last race on Saturday with Jovita’s Tuffy.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Journey On, 2. Theatre Star, 3. Parranda. LONG SHOT: Premier Steps.

This 4-year-old JOURNEY ON could have run against Cal breds on Saturday, but trainer Doug O’Neill opted to run in this Grade III event. The daughter of Good Journey does her best running on or near the front so expect jockey Tyler Baze to put her right there.


NINTH RACE: 1. West Coast Storm, 2. Shared Image, 3. My Wish Come True. LONG SHOT: Stracciatella.
