Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Saturday, Jan. 3

FIRST RACE: 1. Call It Good, 2. My Charlie Boy, 3. Mr. Chase. LONG SHOT: Increase.


SECOND RACE: 1. Rocket Heat, 2. The Man, 3. New Summit. LONG SHOT: Blue Law.

ROCKET HEAT (10-1), a first-time starter from the Jeff Bonde barn, is bred to sprint, sired by Latent Heat. Bonde puts good speed jockey Edwin Maldonado aboard so this looks like a send job in a tough maiden event.


THIRD RACE: 1. Endless Cruise, 2. Intermix, 3. Tiz Futurity. LONG SHOT: Presiding Justice.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Zip N Bayou (best bet), 2. Lakwani, 3. Miz Penelope. LONG SHOT: Makena.

Love horses by City Zip, both in their debuts and on the grass, and we have both here in ZIP N BAYOU (6-1). Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer puts good gate jockey Martin Pedroza aboard this 3-year-old filly.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Kafister, 2. Pulling G’s, 3. Knock Em Flat. LONG SHOT: Papa Turf.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Q’Viva, 2. Cacica Dulima, 3. Susan B Good. LONG SHOT: Denotion.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Seduire, 2. Callback, 3. Lady Lake. LONG SHOT: Conquest Harlanate.

SEDUIRE (4-1), a filly, returns from Northern California, where she won a minor stakes at Golden Gate. Now she returns to graded company. The third-place finisher in that race won a stakes at Santa Anita on Thursday. This daughter has speed and from the inside look for Rafael Bejarano to gun from the gate for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Dynamic Sky, 2. Tom’s Tribute, 3. Big Bane Theory. LONG SHOT: Skyring.


NINTH RACE: 1. Lyla Della, 2. Bernier, 3. Ski’s Copper Penny. LONG SHOT: Ruby N Diamonds.
