Santa Anita for Friday 5 March 2010

[private]

Handicappers Corner

Blockbuster card Saturday loaded with a lot of quality horses. Haven't studied the card yet but we have a superior track record on stellar weekend cards.

For today we have 2 recommended pick 3 part-wheels

1st race pick 3     1, 3, 6 / 2, 4, 6, 7 / 2,5     24 wagers

6th race pick 3    1, 6, 7 / 3, 5, 6 / 3, 5, 10     24  wagers    

Race 1    slightly above average clarity

6  Purse Luva   only true late runner in the field....last run route to sprint like today was a significant fig

1  Eternally Fast   speed of the speed here....last 2 efforts fit fine at this level

3  Move On Up   only beaten less than 6 lengths (albeit on the sod) in last....drops back to a spot he might handle especially if the grass legged him up some

Race 2    average clarity

2  Suances De Espana   exits 2 straight fast heats in a row.....right there at the 5 furlong mark 4 of his 5 lifetime races

4  Bagels N Bones   laid up but has a work series that says ready to roll fresh....1 for 1 on the SA Pro-ride.....her lone win

7  Suziqcutie   5 starts at 5 1/2 F and has 3 wins and 2 2nd's....not much more to say than that

6  Enchanting Moment   bit strange in that this mare keeps dropping and running better figs......drops once again

race 3    slightly below average clarity

2  Devil's Mate   Armstrong and the Budget Stable have been very reliable when the show good morning preparation....that's the case here ...5F and a good speed rider suggest this one is quick early

5  Simply Put   the fact that Sadler has kept a mare around who has only had 1 race a year for 3 straight years says this is a logical drop...all 3 lifetime runs are tough for this level

6  Kaylie's Joy   good speed and a good speed rider which is a good fit for today's 5F distance......long layoff but working well enough to be considered ready.....especially only having to run 5F

3  Sombre   speed of the speed who quits past 5F would love to have more of these abbreviated sprints carded

Race 4    slightly above average clarity

4  Warrens Summergold   bred decently for the grass....barn's had a very solid meet.....has shown good speed and final time in both AW efforts

1  Belongs To Gotham    consistent sort likes the sod and finally gets to sprint on it which I believe he will appreciate......has been on the board in all 9 lifetime starts

8  Proud Hillybilly    may have needed his last off of the layoff....bred decently for the sod and the barn has won 4 of their last 14 1st on the time on the grass

Race 5    below average clarity

5  Ziggy's Stardust   impressive run in latest which was his 1st ever at a route...had to cope with the outer-most 10 post that day...draws a much more favorable post today...should be flying late

1  Metrology  last looks like the sprint prep for today's route race...jock/trainer have been a good team the last few months

6  Saw Perfection   handles two turn racing on the turf just fine....1st ever on the AW but his breeding seems equally as good for the synthetic

9  Dontsellmetofelons   showed life in his MSW debut closing late from the back of the pack...should benefit from that race and move forward today

race 6    above average clarity

1  Scofield Barracks   made a big move forward in 2nd lifetime start last June......looking for the same 2nd out after the layoff here

6  Smoke Cat   solid efforts/figs the last 5 races....reassuring work since says we can expect more of the same

7  Spirit Of Cochise   moved forward in last in what was a tough group of 25K claimers......solid drill since and Gomez up

5  Spot The Diplomat   Mullins wins close to a 30% clip 1st out after the claim....plenty of speed up front should aid his closing style

Race 7    slightly above average clarity

6  Tanda  just ran 2nd to the filly that snatched 2nd in the B C Juv filly turf and it was at today's distance.....bullet work since

5  Sweet Hanni   proven (1 for 1) on the hill and gets 3 lbs off...excellent work series since...rider has won 3 of his last 4 mounts for the barn

3  Elusive Galaxy   faced the best overseas of the 4 Euro ship ins.....also appears to be training as if fully fit and ready for her U S of A debut

8  Cash Queen Anna   ran some solid races on much firmer then normal turf in GB...seems like a smart move to bring her to sunny California and its fast firm turf

race 8    average clarity

10  Summers At Delmar   Canani says enough is enough....time to drop to get to that desired winners circle of smiles

3  Little Travis   very strong works for a guy like West....1st mount for Russel this meet but West has used him on "live" horses in the past

5  Kim's Leading Man   blocked badly in his last 2 races...blinkers on to help this fellow focus and hopefully be more maneuverable

2  Dubai You X Y Z   C Hunt who has mostly been an exercise rider over the years looks like she has been given a live mount as well...solid works and a small but capable barn

6  Rise To Power   14 to 1 in a 5 horse field has gimme written all over this colt's debut last...should see more today on the drop
