Santa Anita for Sunday 24 May 2020

Difficult card as you can tell from the "clarity ratings". Monday's card looks better.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1   below average clarity

8 Fly the Sky   1st in a sprint but he has made some strong middle moves in a few of his route grass endeavors......before the break the trainer was hot.......very consistent gelding since the blinkers were added......should be tough despite the significant cut back in distance

5  Jetovator   seems very well suited to today's 5 1/2 furong distance turf or dirt.........on the improve with each and every race in 2020...........Flavien Pratt wisely stays put

3  Unbridled Ethos

7  Preaching Trainer

2  Bench Judge

 

race 2    below average clarity

5  Easy Grader   significant drop sure makes sense as this gal is 7 and has only managed to race 11 times.......away since 26 Jan 19 but training up to snuff and she is at her best "fresh"........trainer Truman has done well with limited starters in 2020

6  Mongolian Window   mare hasn't gotten the job done in bottom level turf races so in order to drop to face softer competiton she has to race on the SA main track.......if she handles it she should fit solidly in this spot........works on the SA dirt hints she will

4  Madame Barbarian   

2  Ruby Bradley

3  Mika the Mistress

 

race 3    average clarity

2  Brickyard Ride   easily has the best early speed in the field and for a decent speed jock in Velez.......lone race at SA on a fast rated track with the blinkers on led to his only lifetime win.......if Velez can ration his speed better he will be tough

6  Arc Nation   sprint-route-sprint manuever........a little short on numbers but his race 2 back where he won was a key race.......race 3 back where he ran 2nd was a very key race.......solid a.m. work.........Valdivia might be able to get a nice stalk position

5  Foreign Protocol

 

race 4    average clarity

8  Zest   race lacks speed and this four year old filly has some and she has the added plus of not being a lead type only.........she has been absent since 23 June 19 when she ran a MSW race that is better than par for the level........works hint Shirreffs has her ready

3  Nurse Goodbody   solid MSW turf sprint debut and for a trainer that is night and day better with 2nd time starters.........bred well to handle a route.......and one positve rider change especially for a route turf race......hard not to like

5  Convincingly   

7  Dipping In

4  Wind and Hope

 

race 5    average clarity

3  Camby   best on the Santa Anita dirt and his last two races on it (his latest and race 4 back) are solid and disguised in their strength.......might be a hanger of sorts.........hope not

7  Sky Jumper   Baffert four year old gelding is on the improve and now takes a small drop.......might have plenty of endurance for today's 5 1/2F affair coming off of dirt route.......hard not to like

2  Baby Gronk

9  Cryin' Chuck

8  Undeniable Proof

 

race 6    average clarity

1  Fivestar Lynch  Carnac sees Prat getting the perfect trip (for those too young to know “Carnac the Magnificent” was an soothsayer played by Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show who could divine the answers to questions that were sealed in envelopes) sitting behind a very suspect speed horse in number 8.......if that is the case it should help him overcome the signicant move up in class

2  Red King   very consisnent grass horse the last couple of years gets a small rider upgrade which should help him obtain his 1st win since April of 2019.......away since Feb but six year old handles breaks quite well

8  Go Daddy Go

7  Crystal Tribe

4  Avalanche

 

race 7    average clarity

3  Press Briefing   Peter Miler isn't that dangerous with MSW 1st time starters but he is very dangerous with MC 1ster's especially one working as well as this three year old gelding is over at Slr........new sire is off to a good start and mom has tossed one winner from one starter

4  Full Draw   Sadler is just the opposite of Miller in that he is stout with MSW 1st time starters but only 1 for his last 17 with MC 1ster's........but this four year old is working too well to be ignored......and mom has tossed two winners from two starters

1  Beaumont Beaux

8  Most Sandisfactory

2  Polar Wind

 

race 8    average clarity

6  Border Town   nice improvement in his latest with 1st time blinkers to graduate in style with a going away at the wire 3 1/2 length win in 9F turf MSW affair........works since are dynamite.......so is his rider Flavien Prat

1  Madman   away since January but he has shown he runs well "fresh"...........last race fits and today's he gets a significant rider upgrade.........not out of the win picture by any means

5  Irish Heatwave

2  Southern King

8  Mountain Spirit

 

race 9    way below average clarity

(I only do this about twice a year but when a race is ulra tough to decipher I list all contenders in order of preference)

5  Blue Patriot

1  Tallemark

8  Betito

9  Brace for Impact

3  Handsome Cat

6  Clayton Destiny

7  Caeruean

11  Lil Richrads Bello

2  El Diablo Rojo

Santa Anita for Sunday 17 May 2020

Our many high priced top picks over the last two days have run great but things could have turned out better with some better trips. The one that really hurt was the 2 horse in yesterday's 9th as our bomb had multiple points of trouble and still only lost by a neck as tons the best. Oh well. 

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

8  Lofty   crushed her foes in all three of her lifetime 5 1/2 furlong grass races........Santucci figs earned in her last 2 races are better than par for today's slightly tougher level........hard not to like

10  Querelle    no pace to close into in her race two back which was at today's distance and yet she still won........lifetime best in her next putting in an impressive late kick........Miller is one dangerous trainer with turf sprinters

2  Thriving    SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE 

5  Shines Her Light

3  Nice Ice

 

race 2    average clarity

3  Love Wins   very nice a.m. preparation that stands out here and for a trainer in Luis Mendez who often has them ready to roll in these early baby races.....easy to put as top pick-a-rue

4  Judy With Grace   Ron Ellis sure has changed is ways with first time starters.........whereas he almost always gave his 1sters a race or two he is just the opposite the last year or so and is quite dangerous with a 1st time starter........last preparatory work was out of the gate and sure looks good

1  Miss Glorious

 

race 3    below average clarity

1  Afternoon Heat   very consistent late running colt and for a trainer in Steve Knapp who sure is having one of his best year 6 month periods in a very long time.........Italian rider Rispoli wisely stays put.......Umberto is starting to ride the main track as well as the turf........like Prat he is one great addition to SA and likely gives the track a little bit more of Euro attention/players

6  Quick Finish   back to Van Dyke who has both lifetime wins on this gelding who is versatile.........six year old has won on the pace and off of the pace......believe that 6F is his best distance......last time he saw 6F was 9 races back and he won by 7L

7  My Patience

3  Conte Cavour

 

race 4    average clarity

4  Lovely Finish   hard trying improving sort ran a race on 14 March when last seen that if she can repeat it would win this race........work tab suggests she has held form.......break clean and hold on 10 lbs. bug boy Mauro Donoe

10  Liberalism   both lifetime races run at two last summer for this filly fit well........work regiment suggests she is ready to roll for her 3rd start.......jock upgrade........hard not to like

5  Noor Khan

2  Ole Silver

9  Sweet Regards

8  Gemma Royal

 

race 5    average clarity

6  Fravel   SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE  very big grass race 2 back and the strength of the effort is disguised by a bad trip.........poor race in his latest but plenty of time off to right the ship......1st time gelding.......1st time Rispoli.........trainer R Mandella is having a strong 2020 with limited starters and teamed up with Rispoli for a turf win yesterday

7  I Am Innocent    went off at 21 to 1 in a six horse field which hints he might not have been fully cranked up........and yet he ran 2nd in a 6 furlong dirt race.......turf route today and his pedigree to handle one is good......lookout today as he likely is fully "cranked" today

9  Bud Knight

8  Tropical Terror

1  Pour On the Cole

 

race 6    average clarity

7  Collusion Illusion   Glatt is firing on all cylinders at the moment and the works for this laid up colt are as good as you ever see from a given Glatt runner.......when last seen this colt won a Grade 2 in his 2nd lifetime endeavor earning one strong number for an August two year old.........Prat is up and he's off to a great start at the "new" SA meeting

4  Rowayton   (4 2 1 0 1) in fast track sprint races and the 4th was in a Grade 1 at Saratoga where he only lost by a neck for the win......like our top choice his works suggest it's a go fresh off of the bench

3  St. Joe Bay

5  Tiger Dad

 

race 7    average clarity

6  Classy Ruler   very impressive 1st at a route two back earning a strong "real" number and an adjusted for trip fig that is off the charts.........likely bounced (hate the over used word but I have to use it here) in her last.......8 weeks off to get his mojo back.......Smith stays put as he likely sees the potential for a Stakes winner in the future

1  Sweet Devil    nice forward move in her 2nd lifetime start and 1st at a route.........cut back in distance should give this filly plenty of endurance to finish well.......1st on the dirt but McCarthy is often at his most dangerous with the turf to dirt move

3  Crystal Ball

5  Madison Parc

8  Saving Sophie

 

race 8    average clarity

5  Bellafina   not the best of gate horses but it usually doesn't matter when she races on the Santa Anita surface which she loves......toss last at OP as she had a bad trip......big bullet 4F work at SA since the OP race......Prat back aboard after being absent for a few races.....trainer is often at his most dangerous 2nd out following a break

6  Artistic Diva   like our top pick she tossed a clunker shipping into OP......back home and the last 4 preparatory works she put in are impressive..........2 for 2 at 6F and the 6F run at SA was very strong albeit in 2017

1  Fighting Mad

8  Hang a Star

2  First Star

 

race 9    average clarity

1  Lucky Ms Jones   tepid top choice drops to a level she should have a shot at the circle of joy after 8 straight races where she did not have much of one........works hint she has held form........good post and an adequate turf jock.......the D'A is very dangerous 1st time in claiming with a given horse

7  Harper's Gallop   a monumental jock upgrade especially for a turf race........trainer has been ice cold for a very long time but has a shot at jump starting things here with this route speed turf filly

6  Social Graces

10  Suto

9  Kleen Karma

8  Sabinos Pride

 

race 10    average clarity

1  Lambeau   all three lifetime dirt route races are quite a bit better than par when you adjust for pace and position especially the two that were run at SA.......7 Feb race - slight tardy start and then had to deal with a nasty set of fractions......... Mar 6 race - he was on a dead rail and did extremely well to be in the money in both......1st time Mike Smith......such a deal

2  Winning Element    (9 5 3 1) over last 9 starts and the last two races both wins are quite a bit better than par for the nw alw......Prat was up for both races and stays up this afternoon.......he should get a nice grounding saving stalk position at least thru turn......hard not to like with the way Ryan Hanson is getting the job done in 2020

5  Kiss Today Goodbye

3  Unbroken Star

8  Swamp Souffle

Santa Anita for Saturday 16 May 2020

My conclusion was that the inside was slightly dull yesterday so I "slightly" leaned that way with today's picks. Be back with you on Sunday.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    below average clarity

5  Brickbat   copious drills put into this MC20K 1ster from the Craig Lewis barn and the last 3 preparatory works suggest this gelding is peaking at the right time.........mom has tossed 5 winners from 5 starters.....not too shabby

9  Sensuous   away since 8 Mar 19 but training up to snuff and takes that magical drop from MSW to MC20K......and trainer Shelbe Ruis does awfully well with limited starters including with the MSW to MC move

14  Lil Sydney

3  Royal Aspirations

7  Street Image

 

race 2    below average clarity

8  Silk From Heaven   four year old filly is at her best racing at 5 1/2 or 6F and her top surface seems to be the SA main track.........and she seems improved since Hector Palma saw fit to put the blinkers on his four year old filly........responses well to sitting close to the front and she might be able to do that here in a race without much speed signed up

2  Songofthedesert  front running sort and jock Abel Cedillo has options as this mare is capable on or just off of the pace ........high percentage trainer in Wong has won many races up north at GG using Cedillo

7  Wishful

1  Time for Ebby

3  I Want One

 

race 3    average clarity

5  Himiko   brilliant works and a brilliant pedigree........combine that with the worlds best conditioner of three year old runners in Baffert and you have one dangerous 1st time starter.......mom has tossed 5 winners from 6 to start and that includes 3 grass winners.......low % turf rider up in Diaz but he is often very dangerous teaming up with Bob B

4  Navetta   SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE   bad trip in her MSW debut (which was the 7 March version of this race) breaking poorly and racing wide......she did awfully well to run a 1 1/4 length 2nd.......well prepared in the a.m for her 2nd lifetime start

3  Affianced

9  Moonhall Milly

12  Fierce for Sul

11  Scarlet Lips

 

race 4    below average clarity

4  Kershaw  toss out his last at OP as he has a dismal record on off tracks.......race 2 back  at SA and at today's one mile dirt distance was stellar and a repeat of the effort wins this affair.........and it is nice to see the jock who rode him that day is back in the saddle

5  Multiplier   seems to be about a 60/40 chance a hot pace will develop and if it does it plays into the hands of this late running six year old from the Miller barn.......that and Peter M. had a nice day yesterday and might be in full go mode following the forced break at SA

3  Justinian

 

race 5    above average clarity

4  Go for a Ride   both lifetime one mile turf races at SA fit well in this spot........trainer Ryan Hanson was on fire when SA was shut down in late March and likely will be looking to keep the good time going with this gelding he received from the retiring Anna Meah........should get a nice stalking trip

1  Worthy Turk   five year old gelding seems best routing on the grass and the light bulb in Peter's Miller head went off as he not only races him in a turf route but he drops his runner down a notch.........very dangerous mid pack runner

8  Liberal

5  Speakerofthehouse

2  Kris' Wild Kat

 

race 6    average clarity

9  Phantom Boss   bad trip in his latest and he was likely injured in the 30 August race as he has been absent since......preparatory works are up to snuff.......he won a Grade 3 at CD last June......don't see anyone capable of that in this field

8  Big Sweep   Glatt passed putting this filly in the filly version of this Stakes race which in race 8 today.......my guess is he likes the weight break and the fact outside of our top choice the male Stakes looks soft

7  Better Trip Nick

2  Rookie Mistake

4  Summer Fun

 

race 7    above average clarity

2  She's Our Charm   McAnally trains one game four year old filly as I have been impressed with all 4 of her races.......that and all four are better than they appear in print........rider upgrade and that is rare for Brice Blanc with the strength of the SA jockey colony

7  Dogtag   good layoff race for this ex Chan Brown runner who is now trained by R Mandella......work regiment since the 8 March race is impressive.......hard not to like

5  Desert Oasis

3  Strike At Dawn

 

race 8    average clarity

9  Warren's Showtime   4 for 5 on the lawn but 0 for 2 on the dirt........but both dirt races were compromised by not the best of trips........her last dirt race was 3 back where she was in tight and wide doing awfully well to finish 3rd beaten 4L in a $200K Stakes.......not my favorite rider but he knows this filly inside and out as he has been aboard for all 7 of her lifetime races

1  Smiling Shirley   believe this filly is at her best in dirt sprints and that is somewhat hidden.......Smith up in a Stakes race and even at his age he is still as dangerous as anyone on earth when the real money is up for grabs

3  Been Studying Her

7  Warren's Moon

5  Bulletproof One

 

race 9    average clarity

(13 AE Frasard has a shot if he draws into the field)  SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE

2  Eastern Ocean   not too bad of a turf sprint in his last which was his 2nd lifetime start and 1st with Glatt as the conditioner........but what really catches my eye is his vastly improved a.m. work since the race with the blinkers off (assuming of course they were off for his works).......race lacks speed and many of his works suggest he has some now

1  Heywoods Beach   very strong stretch run in his latest especially considering the lackluster pace being set up front......like our top hoice recent improved a.m. work........good post for solid turf rider Rispoli to work out a ground saving trip

6  Lemonade Stand

11  Fire Polish

8  Capital Call

 

race 10    average clarity

5  Sorriso   decent MSW turf sprint debut and now takes that ever significant drop from MSW racing to MC.......that and Glatt is very stout with the turf to dirt move with 2nd time starters.......Glatt's stock was impressive yesterday........hard not to like

8  Hapi Hapi   not much in his 2nd lifetime start but his maiden debut was decent and disguised by a poor trip-a-rue.....broke slow and than checked and ran somewhat wide.......did well to beat 6 of 9 foes........laid up since his 2nd start run last September but his preparatory works suggest he is more than ready for his return to the race wars

10  With Due Cause

4  Handsome Cat

11  Desert Swarm

Santa Anita for Friday 15 May 2020

Santa Anita is back in business. Cross your fingers it stays that way with two obstacles to overcome as in keeping a spread of the virus at bay and avoid break downs. My apologies for fewer comments this weekend as the sudden change in tracks has made us behind in our work.

So so race card today but at least we only have one favorite as our top selection and the ML on our top choice is 8 to 1 or higher in 4 of the 9 races. Might be a "feast or famine" kind of day.

 

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    below average clarity

10  Thanks Mr. Eidson   Jeff Bonde three year old colt was on the improve with each and every race last summer finishing his two year old campaign with a solid 4th in a Grade 2 on 10 August........he has been absent since but returns with copious drills put in......1st on the turf but owns a good pedigree for it......if he takes to the sod he should be in the mix from the get go and tough throughout

6  She's so Special   filly versus the boys but her two races sprinting on the turf fit just fine in this nw alw for three year old runners

5  Drop the Chalupa

9  Governance

4  Party Town

 

race 2    average clarity

11  Instastory   three year old filly has some works (now and then) that suggest she owns some talent especially for a state-bred MC50K .......and mom has tossed 2 winners from 2 starters and one of them was a Stakes winner.......how about a Jeff Bonde double to start the re-opening of SA

2  Curvaceous   another 1ster training quite well for the given level......and.......Adam Kitchingman wins his fair of maiden claiming races and that includes 1st time starters.......good dirt sprint jock in Victor Espinoza

4  Miss Ryleigh  

10  Reds Tribal Heart

8  Queensbeccaandjane

 

race 3    above average clarity

3  Galilean  amazing that this outstanding Cal-bred is still eligible for this nw alw race........would have won his last if not for a bad trip....broke poorly/rushed to duel in a fast half.......all his fast track races fit solidly here and his a.m. work hints he has remained sharp......back to Prat (missing for his last race) making for a rider upgrade

5  Strictly Biz  big MSW debut at two on 7 Sept 18 dueling in quick fractions and still managing to draw off and win by over 4L.......next start was at three 9 months later and was another strong effort running a big grass sprint that was compromised by a bad trip..........big works - has to be ready as it might be a long time before he can race again

9  Tale of the Union

1  Silken Prince

8  Appreciated

 

race 4    below average clarity

1  Stick Up   D'Amayo filly has closed well at a tougher level in both of her 5 1/2 furlong dirt races........she should appreciate not only the drop in MC but another half furlong to work with.......it is also reassuring that she handled the one post quite well in her last and with today's jock up

9  Polar Route   bad start and a wide trip cost this filly about 6L in her latest her 1st on the dirt and at a couple of MC levels higher.....like our top choice she should be motoring late

2  Pammi Dearest

10  Elemental

5  Our Bonnie Lass

 

race 5    average clarity

1  Heathers Grey   shows up every race and she ran way too well to lose in her latest as A Gryder gave her a wide trip and did so up on the pace.........she did extremely well to only be 3 3/4L behind the winner at the wire.........plenty of nice a.am. work since the 7 March race.......come on Aaron

2  Lostintranzlation   six year old mare is by far at her most dangerous off of layoffs and she is working as is she will be today as well coming off of a 4 month break.......as usual she should be on the lead from the get go

3  Ellie Arroway

11  Gypsy Spirit

5  Hollywood Girl

 

race 6    average clarity

3  C Dub   latest race and 1st for George Papaprodromou as the trainer was likely a prep race for today (and a good one as despite finishing 5th out of 7 to start he showed plenty of life with a bad trip) in a protected race.......1st at SA but his a.m. prowess at SA suggests he appreciates the surface and George P. is quite reliable when he shows good works for a given horse.......speed is his main game but take note he also won from off of the pace after a bad start

4  Treasure Hunter   not like Glatt to place a claim at a much higher level following a long level.....so that says the race was the gimme for today's significant drop in claiming price.........and the a.m. work sure is strong......hard not to like

9  Adens Dream

2  Erotic

8  Oh Marvelous Me

 

race 7    average clarity

4  Kayla's Cowgirl   takes that somewhat magical drop from MSW racing to MC20K which for this filly makes plenty of sense as she has hardly earned her keep ($6K since 22 November with 5 starts) ........30% win with 215 starts in 2020 for Wong..........1st on conventional dirt but her a.m. work at SA says she likes it

2  Golden Melodie   bet hard in the 15 March version of this MC20K race but didn't get the best of trips from Figueroa and finished 3rd........ a.m. prowess since the race is improved........likely sitting on her best in a very long time

1  Csaba Momma

5  Civil Suite

8  Tenga's Jubilee

 

race 8    above average clarity

9  Muchly   filly seems best at today's one mile turf distance.......she ran a strong race in her latest which was her first in the good old U S of A......the effort was compromised by a poor start and a bit of an early rush.......new jock in Prat today.......improved work regiment......solid trainer in Callaghan.......should be tough despite a difficult post

10  Dupioni   exits the same race as our top choice and she also was racing 1st time off of the plane from Great Britian.......she beat Muchly but did so with a better trip.......earned the same Santucci fig in the race.......tough post but Valdvia did a nice job from the 9 post in her latest endeavor

5  Lavender

1  Quick

7  Avalon Ride

 

race 9    average clarity

4  Big Mel   Baffert three year old colt went for a cool $800K as a yearling........a.m. work for this 1st timer is exceptionally strong with speed and endurance put in........likely feeling great as she just worked 6F five days ago and yet is able to recover for today's race

3  Ka'nah   four year old ran a giant effort in 2018 as a two year old racing turf to dirt for his 2nd lifetime start.....strong fractions and a solid final time........turf in last and dirt today for his 4th lifetime start.....it's not rocket science

Gulfstream Park for Saturday 11 April 2020

Toughest card to decipher of the three cards that we have handicapped so far. There is racing on Easter Sunday.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 8    average clarity

1  Per Capita   not the best of trips for this colt in both lifetime races run last summer for Chad Brown and company........both races were run in fairly fast times for the given level and day.........works are many and solid........hot jock up......lone four year old in the race.......believe this laid up colt is ready to strut his stuff fresh off of the bench

2  Cornbred Kingdom   likely needed his layoff race and the two strong 4F drills since his layoff run support the notion........race lacks speed and he has a touch and with those 2 fast 4F drills he seems likely to sit close or maybe even on the lead with a clean break

7  Colonel Liam   Pletcher/Saez and a very expensive 1st time starter........works seem decent enough........Pletcher wins about 20% of the time with MSW 1st timers debuting in a route.......that is very good stat as preparing a given runner to run 8F or more in their debut is no easy task

3  Golden Wave

8  Liberty Blue

 

race 9    average clarity

4  Young Raymond  good gate horse and he is improving with each and every race.........seems like a good claim by Maker and a good spot for an improving speed horse as there is a definite lack of early speed in the race for an abbreviated sprint of only 5F

5  Bahamian Prince   consistent sort (6 2 1 2 1) and his two wins can the only two races that he was up for sale.......up for sale toady......red hot trainer at the helm........and he gets Saez to ride who handled this gelding nicely to win with a clean trip the only time he rode this three year old.......hard not to like

7  Zanno   away since last summer where he ran two solid 5F turf races that fit in this spot.......blinkers come off for his return to the race wars........stout a.m. work and it is on the turf.......cold rider up but he did win yesterday........owns some speed in a race lacking it........not out of the win picture by any means......pun intended

1  Boerne   impressive move forward in her 2nd lifetime start to graduate in style with a gate to wire 3 1/2L win.........and since the race she put in an eye-popping 46 flat breeze at GP.......trainer is quite reliable when his horse's should "big works".......hard not to like

4  Gogo Shoes   like our top selection this Tampa invader improved quite a bit in her 2nd lifetime start to graduate........good sign that the Tampa trainer is able to coax a top tier jock in Paco Lopez to ride

3  Good Credence   fily was on the improve with each and every race run last summer/fall in New York........blinkers come off this Margotta filly and the trainer owns an excellent history with the equipment change........not sure is this filly is fully ready off of the 6 month layoff but "lookout" if she is

race 11    below average clarity

10  Battle of Blenheim  3 for 4 at today's turf distance........2 for 9 at other turf distances......red hot rider/trainer combo in Saez/Maker.......10 post but outside of the one horse there are many "slow early" runners lined up inside of this gelding.......so that gives Saez an excellent opportunity to get on over and sit fairly close to the front end of things going into turn one......like his chances if that is what transpires

6  Notsosubtle   five year old gelding has been absent since Sept. 2018 when he ran a strong effort in a Stakes race at GP........returns with a new trainer who does OK getting a given horse to preform at a high level following an extended hiatus from the game.......and the fact that he puts Jaramillo up hints this five year old is ready to roll as the jock gets nothing but "live" runners from the trainer

9  Fifth Title   trainer does well with limited starters......like the rider change especially so for a grass race.........Berrios for me is a grass riding specialist who has a higher win % on the sod than all of the big boys albeit with a much smaller sapling

race 12    below average clarity

4  Liza Star   one great claim for 6,250 10 races back for Walder and company........6 straight wins when racing at 5 1/2 or 6 furlongs and all of the races were run at GP.........and today's jock M Vasquez was up for all but one of those wins......hard not to like

7  Heiressal   lifetime best by my book was run 3 back and was the only time Paco Lopez got the mount on this Teresa Pompay five year old mare.........mid pack runner gets a race shape that can favor of those that sit pack some in the early stages like she does

2  J P's Delight   hard to argue with 4 for 5 lifetime for this O'Connell four year old filly who is able to duel eye to eye and still open up a lead.....few can......mostly placed as 3rd selection because her two races on the GP surface are not as good as her 3 run elsewhere

9  Pacific Gale

6  Starship Bonita

 

race 13    below average clarity

2  Farley   blocked in the stretch in his latest which might have left some "gas in the tank" for today's start......and his stout recent a.m. work sure supports the notion......should be a price

9  Twenty Four Seven   trainer owns many "amazing stats" but two of his most prolific ones are "1st following a claim" & with "claim repeaters"......both pertain here......that and Joseph has won 3 of his last 6 teaming up with today's jock Luis Saez.........hard not to consider

4  Flyoff   fabulous meeting for Weaver at GP for the winter.......will the spring meeting continue the good times........they can if this gelding can repeat his last vs. where he had a less than desirable trip and still was only 2 1/4 behind the winner at the wire
