Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Friday, April 24

FIRST RACE: 1. Bentley’s Gone, 2. My Ole Bud, 3. Doyouknowsomething. LONG SHOT: Rob’s Golden Touch.


SECOND RACE: 1. Quality Chimes, 2. Jackie K, 3. Mackenzies Moment. LONG SHOT: My Sweet Afleet.


THIRD RACE: 1. Kiama, 2. Redressthebalance, 3. Zanbo. LONG SHOT: Spelling Again.


FOURTH RACE: 1. I Heart You, 2. Vegas Bound, 3. Democracy Rules. LONG SHOT: Private Marina.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Tale of Papa Nick, 2. Sidepocket, 3. Gouyen. LONG SHOT: Chaulk O Lattey.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Seek Safe Harbor (best bet), 2. Champion Ris, 3. Swe Gee. LONG SHOT: Aguacita.

The strategy seems straight forward here for SEEK SAFE HARBOR (9-5) as apprentice Gonzalo Nicholas is going to take this 3-year-old filly from the gate and go as fast as he can for trainer Doug O’Neill, who is 32% with horses moving down to two classes . Nicholas and O’Neill are 3-for-5 together.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Wings of Mojave, 2. Cervaro, 3. Ransom Canyon. LONG SHOT: City State.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Divine Tale, 2. Euroclydon, 3. Prettypreciousheir. LONG SHOT: West Coast Storm.

No jockey has been hotter in America than Tyler Baze over the last three weeks and he stays with this 5-year-old mare DIVINE TALE (3-1). She finished second at the level in her first race in nearly a year and gets a furlong longer for her late kick. Surprisingly “turf” trainer Neil Drysdale is 26% with maiden claimers.
