Santa Anita for 10 Feb 2010

Handicappers Corner

Welcome to our new website. We think you will find our new easy to read format quite useful whether you print our publication or view our selections right on your monitor.

Hope the rain doesn't mess up the track too much. If the track plays fair this is a good card especially for a Wednesday. Every race seems playable.

Recommended pick 3 part-wheel starts in race number 6      3,4,7,8,9 with 5,8,9 with 3,6,10,11   60 wagers  (Sunday's recommended pick 4 part wheel paid over 9-2 after 1 scratch)


Race 1

3  Trail Mix   logical drop for this highly consistent 9 year old.....looks loose on the lead...really digs in when challenged

1  Acquire The Fire   best with ample time between races and gets it....barn is white hot...loves today's distance


Race 2

1  Allie Wolf   solid maiden debut just getting nipped at the wire.....blinkers off and the barn has a good history with such an equipment change....1st long but bred to handle 1 mile well

5  Lucky Got Lucky   consistently solid figs for this level but unfortunately hangs when it counts...Pedroza will need to hustle her near the wire to break the trend

3  Singitnsignit   impressive move forward in last and I positive rider switch....good likelihood we see another improvement


Race 3

2  Noblety   strong Top Turf Today figs on this well meant gelding.....likes the hill and has a solid rider/trainer combo

5  Within Reason   impressive run in his last considering the year hiatus from the track......good shot to move forward and retains Talamo who rides the SA hill turf course well

1  Valid Meche   long layoff and only 7 career starts for a 7 year old but Mitchell has put a nice series of tightly spaced drills that should have this gelding ready to roll

10  Crossing The Line   has been slipping some with each run this Winter but owns some dangerous back factor if rebounds


Race 4

8  Smokenomore   this affair seems to lack speed and this gelding has plenty of it.....looks loose and should be formidable throughout

7  Carbon Hoofprint   ran decent versus better in his first U S of A race...back quick and he had a good history with such a maneuver in Great Britain

4  Abalanche   just claimed and wheeled back in 5 days...yikes....but O'neal has had very good success with horses running back in a week or less for the past 6 months or so

10  Indy Ride   just claimed and put this colt back in a sprint where he preformed rather well 2 races back...will need more pace than anticipated to compete for the top prize


Race 5

3  Life By R R   very strong efforts at 6 furlongs including a monster move forward in last....barn steps way up in claiming price suggesting this improving filly came out of her fast last in good shape

5  Dash Dot Dash   filly sure looks as if she is on the comeback trail....barn is hot hot hot

7  See N Win   owns some big early pace capability and Smith is up who usually handles speed types as well as anyone on the synthetic


Race 6

7  Lana's Lovely   nice move forward in last...seems to want 1 turn races only...barn has a solid history with 1st time blinkers which we get today

3  If You Knew Susie   very solid improvement in 2nd lifetime start...mighty tough here if moves forward again once more

8  Lisa Lulu   this filly had been in the doldrums and then woke up in her last with 1st time Sutherland who has been getting it done for B Abrams

9  Kiss'em For Me   moved forward in 2nd lifetime start and now we get a positive rider switch


Race 7

8  Mythical Power   faced better in last and earned a decent fig....3rd  run after the layoff which is something Baffert excels at

5  Deal Breaker   gelding has 3 wins and a 2nd for Mitchell in 4 starts....all 3 wins were with today's jock....strong 6 furlong drill for this  

9  Cigar Man   this gelding preformed well for Cerin in the past even when he was somewhat cold...he's on fire now...and this gelding just popped the most impressive work he's shown maybe ever

6  Calimonco   only listed mount of the day for Mr Gomez so I'd say this one must feel good...very consistent and Bill Mott trained...will need very best and we may get it 


Race 8

6  Arm Chair   Only 2 races on AW surfaces are much better than they look on paper...only beaten by 3 and 4 lengths versus as good or better....impressive 3 work series has sharp

3  Spinning Sound   earned a strong fig with a bad trip in last...back to Bejarano and  1/2 furlong should help chances

11  Crash Landing   on the improve with every start in his return to the races after an extended barn can keep the trend intact

10  Objectified   won only race run at SA by 5....also trains well on the Pro-ride in the morning

4  Runfortherosesdan   only win was turf to AW....that's the scenario today.....will need to move forward a little
