Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Wednesday, Oct. 29

FIRST RACE: 1. Whoyougonnacall (best bet), 2. Empire Cat, 3. Slapshot Man. LONG SHOT: Condition.

WHOYOUGONNACALL (3-1), a 2-year-old gelding, has shown speed in both of his races and now gets to go around two turns for the first time. He is a son of Ghostzapper and should relish the added distance. Trainer Phil D’Amato is 21% sprint-to-route and jockey Joe Talamo is 28% with D’Amato.

SECOND RACE: 1. West Riding, 2. Mangita, 3. Taste Like Candy. LONG SHOT: Yahilwa.

==

THIRD RACE: 1. Bolo, 2. Diamond Majesty, 3. Secreto Primero. LONG SHOT: Clever Move.

==

FOURTH RACE: 1. Silk in Silver, 2. Magic Number, 3. Cayanna. LONG SHOT: Siberian Winter.

==

FIFTH RACE: 1. Inspeight of Us, 2. Partyin, 3. Doctor Susan. LONG SHOT: Blooming Hannah.

Since Leandro Mora has taken over for the suspended Doug O’Neill the barn has been winning at a 25% clip and the 2-year-olds have been firing. INSPEIGHT OF US (6-1), a daughter of Speightstown, has had some good works for her debut at Fairplex Park. Leading jockey Rafael Bejarano takes the mount.

==

SIXTH RACE: 1. Silver Torch, 2. Gallant Charm, 3. Watch It Buster. LONG SHOT: Crux.

==

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Alberts Hope (15-1), 2. Hoppertunity, 3. Pimpernel. LONG SHOT: Diamond Bachelor.

One of the top 2-year-olds on the West Coast last summer, ALBERTS HOPE (15-1), a gelding, came back with a disappointing race last month. He only figures to improve off that effort for trainer Mike Puype and might surprise in here against some toughies.

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Signature Cat, 2. Hot Lightning, 3. Dontpreachto Darcy. LONG SHOT: All Around Brown.
