Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Sunday, Feb. 8 (UPDATED)

FIRST RACE: 1. Blooming Hannah (best bet), 2. Pocketfullofgreen, 3. Herecomeskat. LONG SHOT: Stunning Taste.


SECOND RACE: 1. Amnesia, 2. Mark of a Gem, 3. Camyrn Kate. LONG SHOT: Free Money.


THIRD RACE: 1. Miss Centerfold (SCRATCHED), 2. Wild At Heart, 3. Never Ends. LONG SHOT: Dad’s Princess. New picks: 1. Wild At Heart, 2. Never Ends, 3. Dad’s Princess. LONG SHOT: By the Shore.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Radiant Journey, 2. Zuzu’s Petals, 3. Yana. LONG SHOT: Twelve Folds.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Bayonet, 2. Scandal, 3. Vendita. LONG SHOT: Conquest Artura.

BAYONET (12-1), a 3-year-old filly, makes her turf debut, but the real key is the distance. By Colonel John, she should enjoy the added distance as trainer Peter Eurton us 20% with horses off a 61-180-day layoff and he is 20% with jockey Elvis Trujillo.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Quality Plan (SCRATCHED), 2. Night Badger, 3. Flat Gone. LONG SHOT: Casual Attire. New picks: 1. Niht Badger, 2. Flat Gone, 3. Como Mi Padre. LONG SHOT: Casual Attire.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Sir Barclay, 2. Rolo Tamaci, 3. Valdirone. LONG SHOT: I B Mike.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Birdlover, 2. Indecise, 3. Fanticola. LONG SHOT: Global Hottie (SCRATCHED). New long shot: Sky Treasure.


NINTH RACE: 1. Brother Soldier, 2. This Time I Win, 3. Coolington. LONG SHOT: Sum Midnight Star.

This 4-year-old BROTHER SOLDIER (8-1) drops from a claiming race to a starter allowance, where he finished third. There have been two nice works since and he may be sitting on a good one for trainer Richard Baltas and jockey Flavian Prat.
