Santa Anita selections for Friday, March 6

FIRST RACE: 1. Scatajawea, 2. Summer Veil, 3. Open Day Light. LONG SHOT: Zippininaroundtown.


SECOND RACE: 1. Diamante Mobile, 2. Irish and Lucky, 3. Quay Factor. LONG SHOT: Katerrific.

FIFTH RACE: 1, Day of Fury (best bet), 2. Logan’s Moon, 3. Apollo Ten. LONG SHOT: Got Even.

You don’t often see trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Gary Stevens, who are a 31% proposition, at this price so we’ll take a swing. DAY OF FURY (6-1), a 4-year-old, has done his best running on the Santa Anita main track and we’re hoping for the same thing here.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Young and Hungry, 2. Anytime Anyplace, 3. Currency Exchange. LONG SHOT: Top Floor.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Sheer Pleasure, 2. Lost Bus, 3. Party Rock. LONG SHOT: Grand Yodeler.

In this 3-year-old filly’s only race on dirt she won for fun at Los Alamitos. SHEER PLEASURE  (6-1) returns to the dirt today and trainer Phil D’Amato puts blinkers on (36%) and jockey Martin Garcia (32%) takes over. Look for more speed out of the gate.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Royal F J, 2. Zimmer, 3. Fighting On. LONG SHOT: Jomelo.


NINTH RACE: 1. Happy’s Golden Gal, 2. Comealongwithme, 3. Blind Dreams. LONG SHOT: Bevisioned.
