Gulfstream Park, Horse racing, Santa Anita

Santa Anita selections for Friday, Oct. 9 (plus Gulfstream Park West)

FIRST RACE: 1. Midnight Lady, 2. No Tricks for Jack, 3. Charlotte R. LONG SHOT: Mudge.


SECOND RACE: 1. Never Ends, 2. Sarahline, 3. Yana. LONG SHOT: Blushing Angel.


THIRD RACE: 1. Revenue Virginius, 2. Evo Campo, 3. Abets Abet. LONG SHOT: Campionessa Dolce.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Two the Punch, 2. Classico, 3. Ossetra. LONG SHOT: Knight of Drama.


FIFTH RACE: 1. #4 An Unusual Group (5-1), 2. Smart N Dreamy, 3. Frandontjudge. LONG SHOT: Rock N Bunny.

This filly has something none of the others have in this race: a win over the downhill turf course. Trainer Mark Glatt, who is 26% first off the claim, no doubt knew that and he puts leading rider Rafael Bejarano, who is 34% with Glatt at Santa Anita, aboard.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Love de Car, 2. A Colt Following, 3. Ice Cream Truck. LONG SHOT: Indiana Kate.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Del Mar Ann, 2. Royal Temptress, 3. Bottle Blonde. LONG SHOT: Last Kiss.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. #1 Stellata (6-1) BEST BET, 2, Twisted, 3. Canadian Exchange. LONG SHOT: Just Bookin.

This 3-year-old had a nightmare debut and now drops from MSW to the bottom of the maiden claiming ranks. However, that doesn’t deter jockey Rafael Bejarano from riding for Peter Eurton and they are a 27% combination.

Gulfstream Park West

Race 1: #7 Turnout (4-1)

Trainer Marcial Navarro is 45% second off the claim and this mare seems to be on an every other race pattern. Today is the good race day. Navarro is 28% with claimers overall and apprentice Harry Hernandez takes the mount.


Race 2: #9 Soneofaderbywinner MTO (4-1)

There is rain in the forecast for Florida this week (when isn’t there?) so if this race gets move to the main track here is our choice. Showed speed going longer, but appears to like sprinting and is going out of a key race.
