Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Friday, Sept. 26

Just a reminder that Santa Anita has put in a new main dirt track during its break from racing. It’s possible the speed biases might be a thing of the past, but who knows until they race. In listening to some early comments from exercise riders, word is the track is deeper and you don’t hear the horses, but like we said: we’ll see.


FIRST RACE: 1. Redshirt, 2. Madam Aamoura, 3. Here Comes Chloe. LONG SHOT: Pure.


SECOND RACE: 1. Golden Triumph, 2. Gal Has to Like It, 3. Sacred Ovation. LONG SHOT: Peacenik.


THIRD RACE: 1. Heat the Rocks, 2. Flat Footed Mama, 3. Tatum’s Gold. LONG SHOT: Niassa.


FOURTH RACE: 1. As Rulers, Go, 2. Intoxicating Move, 3. La Sorrella. LONG SHOT: More Complexity.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Expo and Fig, 2. Royal Tale, 3. Persisting. LONG SHOT: Golden Chalice.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Betty Bing Bing, 2. Natal, 3. Swiss Heart. LONG SHOT: Bird In Love.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Contributor, 2. Jomelo, 3. Shun. LONG SHOT: Ransom Canyon.

Trainer Julio Canani was as hot as anyone at the end of the Del Mar meet. He claimed CONTRIBUTOR (8-1), a 3-year-old gelding, away from Glen Hill Farm and throw out that last race and this son of Repriced should be right there with jockey Joe Talamo aboard.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Alberts Hope, 2. Indianapolis, 3. Street Icon. LONG SHOT: Diamond Bachelor.


NINTH RACE: 1.¬†Ambitious Brew, 2. Unbridled’s Note, 3. Pure Tactics. LONG SHOT: Snowday.

AMBITIOUS BREW (4-1), a 4-year-old gelding, makes his return after a 7-month layoff for trainer Marty Jones. The son of Tizbud is a perfect 3-for-3 on the downhill turf course. Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith returns to ride AMBITIOUS BREW, who is coming out of a key race.
