Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita Park picks for Friday, May 30

Remember first post is 3 p.m. on Friday.

FIRST RACE: 1. Acute, 2. Summers Dignity, 3. Eltoninadress. LONG SHOT: Lady Vivien.


SECOND RACE: 1. Lucky Logan, 2. Big Swag, 3. Show and Tell. LONG SHOT: Keegers.

Trainer Peter Miller is on fire, winning 6-of-13 races last week, and he sends out LUCKY LOGAN, a 2-year-old son of Lucky Pulpit, for the first time here. Miller is 21% with first-time starters and this one has been putting up bullets at San Luis Rey Downs training center. Speed jockey Edwin Maldonado gets on.


THIRD RACE: 1. Midnight Mayhem, 2. Yodeling Honey, 3. Stauffenberg. LONG SHOT: End of Time.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Gia Is a Bella, 2. Citizen Jane, 3. New Nature. LONG SHOT: Belonging.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Fanny Brice, 2. Tribal Peace, 3. I’m No Patsy. LONG SHOT: Divine Way.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Hijra, 2. Warren’s Rosebud, 3. Winning Rhythm. LONG SHOT: Nickels Wild.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Big Break (best bet), 2. Lemon de Oro, 3. Innocent Love. LONG SHOT: Miss Radiance.

Trainer Steve Knapp puts blinkers on BIG BREAK, a daughter of Mr. Big, and we have to assume that is the reason for a pair of bullet works since her last race. Jockey Kent Desormeaux jumps on and he has been getting run out of his mounts since returning to SoCal.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Superboot, 2. Itsgettinhotinhere, 3. Red Globe. LONG SHOT: Navarre.

Red-hot trainer Peter Miller sends out another one here. Miller claimed SUPERBOOT, a gelding, last time out and returns him to the grass, where he ran in England. He also moves up in class. There is also a big work showing since his last race.
