Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Sunday, June 22 (updated)

FIRST RACE: 1. Cousin Ricky, 2. Complusive, 3. Stand by Your Man. LONG SHOT: W. Giles.


SECOND RACE: 1. Hamiltonian (best bet), 2. Xuang Feng, 3. Senator Bob. LONG SHOT: My Jealous.

Trainer Robertino Diodoro and jockey Fernando Perez have been a real potent pair (27% at Santa Anita), especially in the lower claiming ranks. HAMILTONIAN, a gelding, drops a level off a big second place finish and this sure looks like a single in all wagers.


THIRD RACE: 1. Sunset Skies, 2. Nothing But Air, 3. Underhill Drive. LONG SHOT: Gelila.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Nikki Allyn 2. Spirit of Ten, 3. Lady Vronsky. LONG SHOT: Giddy Up Cowgirl.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Queen of The Sand, 2. Bee Brave, 3. Scarlet Strike. LONG SHOT: Lady Asano.

Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith has his choice of three horses in this race and choose QUEEN OF THE SAND, a 4-year-old filly, for trainer Paddy Gallagher. Making her second start in the ‘States, she figures to get off to a better start this time.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Warrensdollarsigns, 2. Senso, 3. Italian Harmony. LONG SHOT: Hollywood Producer.
