Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Saturday, Feb. 28

Looks like Arcadia missed the rain. Everything is on the turf.


FIRST RACE: 1. Commander King (turf only) (best bet), 2. Blue Law, 3. Rockin Robin. LONG SHOT: Milton.

Trainer John Sadler claimed this 3-year-old COMMANDER KING (8-1) last year, no doubt with turf in mind. He gets his chance here as Scat Daddys excel on the grass. Sadler is 21% first off the claim and 21% going from sprint to route.


SECOND RACE: 1. Hotaling Heart, 2. Patriotic Brother, 3. Lust for Life. LONG SHOT: Shy Rosa


THIRD RACE: 1. Oligarch, 2. Sacred Ovation, 3. Trelawny. LONG SHOT: Nextdoorneighbor.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Anniversary Kitty, 2. Humoristica, 3. Vanlose Stairway. LONG SHOT: Brescat.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Protocol, 2. Masochistic, 3. Reno Rebel. LONG SHOT: Airfoil.


SIXTH RACE: 1. The Man, 2. Wabel, 3. Ideal. LONG SHOT: Nob Hill.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. All Star Bub, 2. Luminance, 3. Wild At Heart. LONG SHOT: Midnight Miley.

Tough first-level allowance race. ALL STAR BUB (8-1) is one of two for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. This filly broke her maiden at this distance on the main track and returns with leading jockey Rafael Bejarano aboard. Hollendorfer is 24% with Bejarano.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Light the City, 2. Glory, 3. Enchanting Lady. LONG SHOT: Rainha De Bateria.


NINTH RACE: 1. Sweet Sense, 2. Cindys Secret, 3. Ruby N Diamonds. LONG SHOT: Warrensdollarsigns.
