Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Thursday, Feb. 26

FIRST RACE: 1. Justonemorething, 2. Poison Pulpit, 3. One More Roll. LONG SHOT: I’m Popeye.


SECOND RACE: 1. I Don’t Care Who, 2. Ice Cream Truck, 3. Thesheetsguy. LONG SHOT: Muchos Besos.


THIRD RACE: 1. Elektrum, 2. Colonel Joan, 3. Aguafria. LONG SHOT: Spelling Again.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Kyankes, 2. I Heart You, 3. Lob City. LONG SHOT: Valentine’s Reward.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Scatfish (turf only) (BEST BET), 2. Seek a Star, 3. Taylor Lane. LONG SHOT: Keezheekoni.

SCATFISH (6-1), a 4-year-old filly, gets another shot down the hill and leading jockey Rafael Bejarano sticks around. She seems to be coming around with a couple of big works and Bejarano is 36% with trainer Mike Pender.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Dress Code, 2. Qatar’s Pearl, 3. My Jealous. LONG SHOT: Cook Inlet.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Majestic Presence, 2. Fantastic Style, 3. Long Hot Summer. LONG SHOT: Bad Ju Ju.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Whinneyhaha, 2. Price of Glory, 3. Sunshine Bandit. LONG SHOT: Grandson At Last.

There doesn’t seem like a lot of speed in this race so we’re hoping WHINNEYHAHA (8-1), a first-timer by Desert Code, has some. Trainer Craig Lewis is 1-for-5 with first-time debut maiden claimers.
