Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Thursday, Jan. 8

FIRST RACE: 1. Brother Soldier, 2. Lolo El Canonero, 3. Test Ride. LONG SHOT: Night Badger.

BROTHER SOLDIER (7-2), a 4-year-old gelding, drops into a claimer for the first time and trainer Richard Baltas puts blinkers on. Speed has done well for the last week on the main track and this horse has been training well, probably with the blinkers.

THIRD RACE: 1. Mom’s Winner, 2. Warren’s Assassin, 3. Sudden Quest. LONG SHOT: Puttybadhsark.
