Santa Anita for Sunday March 7th 2010


Handicappers Corner

Recommended inexpensive pick 4 to start the day that has 3 solid (albeit low priced) horses in 3 of the 4 pick 4 legs    Race 1    1 with 1 with 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 with 4   7 wagers


race 1    above average clarity

1  Good Measure  capable of tremendous pace...loose gone goodbye

4 Champ Pegasus   nice move forward on the sod in last.....bred fine for the synthetic

6  Uncle Greg   on the improve with every start....typical of the way Robbins deals with youngsters...can fly late

race 2    average clarity

1  Sidepocket Lou  very sharp right now and smartly steps up......good rider/trainer team is reassuring

8  Premiere Flyer   barn is finally back in action...obvious bad claim but a good work suggests this gelding is healthy enough...barn may just want to cut their loses

5  Saxophone  consistent sort was just claimed by the ever dangerous J Canani

7  Orientation Hall   has some decent early speed of late and this race seemingly sets for front runners

race 3    average clarity

7  Aislebebarbie   broke out and ran wide earning a solid fig in her 1st run at 7 F.....7F today...same horse and a better wins it

4  No Ka Oi   barn is sharp but not with this drop down...thought they should have dropped to the bottom months ago...anyway.....finally at a level her late run can be a factor

8  Recess  love this filly and her consistency routing....she's trying a sprint today...not sure why.....coin toss

9  Saint's Crown   nice recent drill especially for a trainer like Sherlock....decent 7F history....believe has a shot to wire

race 4    average clarity

4  Red Sun   very impressive daylight wins in all 3 lifetime grass races 2 of which were on the hill...should make it 4 with a clean trip

3  Lt. Hopeful   good chance to get loose and lonely on the lead...Flores will need to milk the pace to hold off the Calvary charge

9  Position A   Mandella has had a good meeting and once again means business here.......4 works in 15 days for this colt...yikes...believe well meant

10  Guns On The Table   Baff  has this one training as if all set to roll down the hill in his return to the race wars after a long layoff

race 5    average clarity

8  Marquet  Rebel   nice move forward in last and a move forward like work since from a reliable barn when they show good works

2  Indy Ride   scratched from yesterday for this spot.....bad start in last at this level and still only lost by a length

3  Phantom Strike   Walsh is solid when she takes the blinks off....nice work tab.....expecting this one to wake up today

5  Pacific Halo   has flashed big early speed under pressure in 2 lifetime route runs.....can get loose here with a good speed rider up

race 6    slightly below average clarity

1  She's Here Now   decent debut and good shot to move forward for a barn who is much better with 2nd time starters

11  Appealing Afire   good stretch drive in MSW debut last....should be closing late

10  Jaws N' Paws  1ster comes from a new sire but mom's thrown a nice tab sure says this one has ability

2  Blue Tango   best drills for a 1ster from the Kitchingham barn in quite some time

race 7    slightly above average clarity

7  Dance With Gable   2 for 2 on the SA hill turf course and just worked great...more than ready for a shot at 3 for 3

2  Mr. Gruff   long layoff  but loves the hill and is training well enough to be considering ready off of the long hiatus from the racetrack

5  Get Funky   recent work suggests to horse is ready for a rebound to his best efforts which fit fine here

1  Victor's Cry   love Gomez on late running types on the hill course...that's what he rides in this spot

race 8    slightly above average clarity

8  Cruz Blanca   AZ  shipper is well  placed to win...ran well versus some good fields in the desert

1  Stray Cat   turn back to 6F should greatly help this consistent late runner from flattening out in late stretch...race seems set for his closing style

5  Kanan Dume    big drop down but....I feel more confident of suspect health types that run off the pace ( less wear and tear)..... can fire late in a race with lots of cheap speed  

4  High Tide Rising   OK debut...right running style....needs to move forward just a little

race 9    average clarity

4  Best Plan   seems to own the best speed in here

7  Uncle Don   can sit on or near the pace in a race lacking speed types

1  Justice Reigns   bad trip good fig in last.....very tough with a good trip if he's the same horse today

2  Bradytomoss   dangerous looking works says this laid up horse is a different animal then he has shown in the past

6  Delago   no shot in last....blocked a ton...should be motoring late...blinkers on may help focus
