Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Friday, March 20

FIRST RACE: 1. Blind Dreams, 2. Scattercash, 3. Zippinaroundtown. LONG SHOT: Valentine’s Reward.

Trainer Doug O’Neill claimed this 4-year-old filly BLIND DREAMS (5-2) last time out and moves her up a level. O’Neill is 17% first off the claim and 19% with horses making their second off the layoff. The daughter of Kodiak Kowboy goes two turns for the first time so we’re thinking that’s why O’Neill claimed her.


SECOND RACE: 1. Reno Rebel, 2. My Samurai Warrior, 3. My Secret Affair. LONG SHOT: Muchos Besos.


THIRD RACE: 1. In Dad’s Honor 2. Twelve Folds, 3. Rosewhitenblue. LONG SHOT: Mum’s Truckee.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Ain’t No Other, 2. Trelawny, 3. El Commodore. LONG SHOT: Success Rate.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Taste Like Candy, 2. Grandiose Tactics, 3. Intoxicating Move. LONG SHOT: My Sweet Addiction.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Caradini, 2. Enchanted Fortune, 3. Pure. LONG SHOT: Taylor Lane.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Guggenheim, 2. Bobby Z Man, 3. Presidentsky. LONG SHOT: Pepnic.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Ruby N Diamonds (best bet), 2. Divine Tale, 3. Euroclydon. LONG SHOT: Secret Appeal.

RUBY N DIAMONDS (4-1) showed high speed at this level last time, but just couldn’t finish. The 4-year-old gets a half-furlong shorter and jockey change to Elvis Trujillo. May take them wire-to-wire.
