Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Friday, June 27

FIRST RACE: 1. Tiz Midnight, 2. Iconic Spirit, 3. Little Miss S. LONG SHOT: Denotation.


SECOND RACE: 1. Thunder Rode, 2. Zimmer, 3. He’s a Dance Star. LONG SHOT: Great Friends Rule.


THIRD RACE: 1. Sweetrayofsunshine, 2. Melanistic, 3. Silver Hustler. LONG SHOT: Buckingham Bull.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Kenji’s Thunder, 2. Sky Preacher, 3. Nakamoto. LONG SHOT: Delaney’s Joy.

Don’t like the post, but do like the breeding on KENJI’S THUNDER (sire is Scat Daddy and is out of a Rahy mare) so this one should love the turf and going around two turns for the first time. Jockey Corey Nakatani stays aboard this 2-year-old, who made his debut just a week ago.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Zinvor, 2. Lucky Logan, 3. Peradventure. LONG SHOT: Naomi’s Gift.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Kakulka, 2. Market Quote, 3. Highly Rated. LONG SHOT: Sahha.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Sensational Nikki, 2. Parada, 3. She’s Flush. LONG SHOT: Doctor Glynis.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Clickjab (best bet), 2. Storm the Channel, 3. Pantera Rojo. LONG SHOT: Grachus the Hunter.

CLICKJAB finished a decent third in her debut as the 8-5 favorite while going down the hill. Here she gets two turns for the first time, which she figures to enjoy being out of Rock Hard Ten and a Gone West mare. Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith stays aboard for trainer Gary Mandella.
