Horse racing, Pimlico, Preakness Stakes, Santa Anita

Santa Anita opinions for Saturday, May 19 (Plus Preakness)

Preview: Isn’t 12 races overkill in Arcadia? Of course, not as bad as 14 at Pimlico. Really?

FIRST RACE: 1. Red Livy, 2. Giant Mongolian, 3. Girl Downstairs. LONG SHOT: Lori’s Attitude.

SECOND RACE: 1. Carnivorous, 2. Takahiro’s Dream, 3. Luck’s Royal Flush. LONG SHOT: Takeo Squared.

THIRD RACE: 1. Catfish Hunter, 2. Insubordination, 3. Two Hail Marys. LONG SHOT: Polity.

FOURTH RACE: 1. California Breeze, 2. Brandon’s Law, 3. Fluorescent. LONG SHOT: Conformation.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Oh Scatty Oh, 2. Trap Queen, 3. Myrcella. LONG SHOT: Majestic Diva.

SIXTH RACE: 1. Catalina Cruiser, 2. Best Two Minutes, 3. Tony Blackjack. LONG SHOT: Fast Munny.

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Rumpus Cat, 2. Jimmy Chila, 3. Littlebitamedal. LONG SHOT: Facts Matter.

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Kochees, 2. Ketos, 3. Eighty Three. LONG SHOT: Burn Me Twice.

NINTH RACE: 1. Cheekaboo, 2. Cordality, 3. Moonless Sky. LONG SHOT: Desert Steel.

10TH RACE: 1. North County Guy, 2. Nova, 3. Bless His Heart. LONG SHOT: Poise to Strike.

11TH RACE: 1. Swayze, 2. Ike Walker, Sheer Flettery. LONG SHOT: Two Thirty Five.

12TH RACE: 1. Crown the Kitten, 2. Ky. Colonel, 3. Secreto Primero. LONG SHOT: Bourbon Soul.

Preakness Stakes

1. Good Magic, 2. Justify, 3. Lone Sailor, 4. Quip. LONG SHOT: Bravazo.
There is no doubt the Pimlico surface will have some water in it. The track has been a quagmire all week and although the rain is suppose to let up early today, it will be wet. Good Magic and Justify have proven they can handle that. Justify is 1-2 on the morning-line and it’s justified, but watch Good Magic’s Kentucky Derby again. He loomed up and made it a race. I think he can turn the tables. Lone Sailor had a troubled Derby as did Bravazo. Quip skipped the Derby because he has the same owners as Justify. He’s got some talent and will be a decent price.
