Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Sunday, March 22

FIRST RACE: 1. Katerrific, 2. Hearitforthegirls, 3. Lady Now. LONG SHOT: Irish and Lucky.


SECOND RACE: 1. Peacenik, 2. Hope ‘n Pray, 3. Atta Boy Pete. LONG SHOT: Changing Karma.


THIRD RACE: 1. Wildman Hart, 2. The Man, 3. Ketos. LONG SHOT: Smooven Square.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Seedsandstemsagain (turf only), 2. Hye I’m Jack, 3. Hazardous Dreams. LONG SHOT: Cap Ferrat.

I’m not sure what possessed trainer Steve Miyadi to run this 4-year-old SEEDSANDSTEMSAGAIN on the dirt after a huge second down the hill on Feb. 16. The colt returns to the grass against many of those he defeated that day. Here’s hoping we get a better price by handicappers looking at the last line.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Tester, 2. Practical, 3. Win Wish. LONG SHOT: Mr. Pete Got Even.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Kerrilynn, 2. Always a Chance, 3. Nero’s Pleasure. LONG SHOT: Pillow.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Grazenette, 2. Wild in the Saddle, 3. Sweet Marini. LONG SHOT: Sudden Sunday.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Indecise, 2. Hijra, 3. Birdlover. LONG SHOT: Customer Base.


NINTH RACE: 1. Pocketfullofgreen (best bet), 2. Gold Journey, 3. Miserable Blue. LONG SHOT: Just Bookin.

This filly POCKETFULLOFGREEN showed high speed and then tired down the lane. There have been three next out winners come out of that race as trainer Phil D’Amato drops her in class. He is 25% with maidens making their second start.
