Santa Anita for Saturday 29 Jan 2011
















  Race 1  Santa Anita   average clarity

1  Swiss Charm   dead on the board in debut and still managed a par like fig for the level....more today is a strong possibility

4  Warren's Lady   very strong drills for the barn for a 1ster and the right guy aboard to get it done

3  Joe Ja   successful Tup trainer has this Cal 1ster ready to roll with a strong series of drills including a 1:10:4 which is quite impressive for a 3 filly Cal bred on the Tup surface


race 2    average clarity

2  Runflatout   excellent work series from Sadler for this 1st timer...rather sure ready at 1st asking 

1  Tokubetsu   solid pace and final time in lone lifetime race 8 weeks ago....and that Baffert guy is the conditioner

4  Unbridled Kimanchi   another 1st timer with a good series of works for his debut into the world of thoroughbred racing...blinkers on for debut suggests intend to fire a good race


race 3    slightly above average clarity

6  Champagneandlilies   good chance to be in the hunt up front from the get go....a good thing these days for a speed rider like Pedroza

1  Simply Put   positive rider switch...can get a nice chase position behind what maybe a very reasonable pace

2  Pivotal Queen   this one needs to be ready fresh because it is usually 1 and done (for quite awhile).....does fit well if she is ready 


race 4    average clarity

6  K. Jems   off a little slow and wide in debut....par like effort for the level...2nd out and a better rider all point to a improved run in 2nd lifetime start

1  Hostile Waters   vast improvement out of nowhere in last....very good chance to win if repeats the effort but no works showing since the race which was run 4 weeks ago...????

8  Guadalupe Lupe   last sure appears like the gimme to be full throttle 2nd out after the are sharp

3  Bobby's N Paradise


race 5    average clarity

3  Cost Of Freedom   very impressive final time fig and pace in last 2 races...great spot for 4th straight victory if handles his 1st race on the new SA surface

1  Amazombie   very sharp animal appears to cherish 6 furlongs...can get what he likes a nice chase / ponce position

7  Apriority   Crc shipper left home with an eye popping 4F drill run just 4 weeks top form

6  Quick Enough


race 6    slightly above average clarity

3  Jeranimo   1st grass race 2 back was solid....last turf race was very good even for a Grade 2...good post and rider...same distance

7  The Usual Q. T.   our top choice beat this guy by 5 but his recent work in the morning suggests he is back in better form and probably ready for his best which is quite good

8  Presious Passion    shipper is loaded with speed and gets Smith a good rider on the front end in 2 turn grass races

5  Caracortado


race 7    average clarity

7  Evening Jewel   sprint grass tune-up in last followed by very strong works...quality Grade 1 winner should be back in peak form for today's 300K stakes race

9  Ultra Blend   consistent late runner appears to have what she needs an abundance of front running types

6  All Due Respect   impressive 1st ever winning run on the new SA surface....owns plenty of early speed but it maybe wise to rate a little here with too many front running types in the race

2  Warren's Blossom


race 8    average clarity

7  Sterling Outlook   impressive 1st ever on the grass and it came off of a long hiatus from the track.....bullet drill since...should move forward

2  Detroit Donnie   positive rider switch seems worth a length or two and that should make him highly competitive down the hill today...beaten by less then 2 in last at the same level as today

4  Ace Of Aces   a lot like our top choice....strong effort off of the layoff and can surely move forward

6  Pack Your Bags


race 9    slightly above average clarity

4  Hot Affair   earned a very solid fig/effort considering the final time combined with strong pace....3 works since and the white hot Baffert trains

2  Word Association   likes ample time between runs and gets it......consistently fires solid races at today's 6 1/2 furlong distance (3 for 3 in the win column and by wide margins)

1  Serene Sophia   1 fo 1 on conventional dirt....likes the distance....Baffert is the conditioner...enough for yours truly


race 10    slightly above average clarity

3  Stoneside   whole career on the hill fits strongly on Top Turf Today in this spot....will need a bad trip or go bad not to be a big factor here

5  Lil Dumaani   very solidform right now andmaybe even better then his last eye popping drill since his last (45:3 bullet)....super sharp if the extremely fast work didn't do him in some

9  Unico Lider   toss out last...caught 3 wide with nasty pace....blew turns before that...blinkers on to focus...owns 2 big turf sprint wins overseas....might show significant early speed today and with P Val up  

4  Dapper Gene

7  Wing Forward
