Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita Park selections for Saturday, June 7

FIRST RACE: 1. Madame Forbes, 2. Moonlight Stroll, 3. Itsabeautifulday. LONG SHOT: I’msoulflattering.


SECOND RACE: 1. Diamond Majesty, 2. Holiday Camp, 3. Social Request. LONG SHOT: Rowdy Dylan.

The pricey 2-year-olds are starting to come out as DIAMOND MAJESTY cost $225,000 for trainer Patrick Biancone and HOLIDAY CAMP was purchased by trainer Bob Baffert for $700,000 for his owner. Both colts have been training well, but the Baffert horse is likely to receive a lot of betting attention.


THIRD RACE: 1. Seeking the West, 2. I Earned It Baby, 3. R S Watson. LONG SHOT: Garen.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Uncharted Course, 2. Hold Everything, 3. Misdeed. LONG SHOT: Oso Smart.

Both UNCHARTED COURSE and HOLD EVERYTHING have been facing some of the top horses in the 3-year-old class for the last year. Now both of them drop into the maiden claiming ranks for the first time. Go with the better price.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Shoer Hugh, 2. Newfound Gold, 3. Gold Medallion. LONG SHOT: Forin Sea.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Smart Journey, 2. Little Professor, 3. Decantered. LONG SHOT: Unusual Taste.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Exclude, 2. Wonderful Union, 3. Myfundsarelo. LONG SHOT: Rocked Twice.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Alpha Bullet, 2. Candy Anniversary, 3. Will True Up. LONG SHOT: Maxx the Giant.


NINTH RACE: 1. Can the Man, 2. Arkenstone, 3. Big Tire. LONG SHOT: Lolo El Canonero.


10TH RACE: 1. Trelawny (best bet), 2. Dysprosium, 3. Causeithertz. LONG SHOT: Oak Kye Why.

Check out the ownership on TRELAWNY. The 7-year-old gelding was claimed last time out for $40,000 by Repole Stable. If that sounds familiar it should. Mike Repole is one of trainer Todd Pletcher’s big clients. Michael McCarthy, a former Pletcher assistant, has gone out on his own and Repole is obviously helping him out here. The gelding just finished second and takes a drop in class trying to cash and make a quick buck.


11TH RACE: 1. Tenkiller Kid, 2. Bosque Angel, 3. Compulsive. LONG SHOT: Clubhouse Rock.
