Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Wednesday, Dec. 31 (UPDATED)

Not sure races will stay on turf with this rain in SoCal, especially the down the hill race. So might put picks up tomorrow morning or possibly late tonight.

FIRST RACE: 1. Nighttiming, 2. Stole a Kiss, 3. Enduring Erin. LONG SHOT: Lethal Story.


SECOND RACE: 1. Peppy Bolly, 2. Eltoninadress, 3. Smil’n From Above. LONG SHOT: My Devilish Diva.


THIRD RACE: 1. Spy Girl, 2. Dakota Kid, 3. Nicegirlsfnishlast. LONG SHOT: Keezheekoni. OFF THE TURF. NEW PICKS: 1. Faringdon Circle, 2. Spy Girl, 3. Keezheekoni. LONG SHOT: Bev’s Summer Song.

SPY GIRL finished third against the boys last time and now returns to face her own sex. Has early speed so should get good position down the hill for trainer Peter Miller.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Desert Thief, 2. Natalie’s Wonder, 3. Cruisingtheharbor. LONG SHOT: R Sweet Addiction.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Majestic Charlie, 2. Cool Roger, 3. Setthebigboysfree. LONG SHOT: Undrgroundrailroad.


SIXTH RACE: Serbian Syclone, 2. The Gomper, 3. Gambler’s Roll. LONG SHOT: All Indians.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Chati’s On Top, 2. Yana, 3. A Little Luckier. LONG SHOT: Market Quote.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Spring Action (best bet), 2.Malone, 3. Bad Behavior. LONG SHOT: Kris the Great.

SPRING ACTION finished a close third at this level last time at Del Mar, but the real key here is trainer Bill Spawr is an amazing 41% with horses going from a route to a sprint. Jockey Joe Talamo stays aboard.
