Santa Anita for Sunday 27 Feb 2011

Decent looking card to finish the race week.

3 more weeks of 4 race days per week then we go to 5 days for the rest of the SA meeting.

Ironic side note to yesterday's 8 of 9 top choice winners....the free selection ran 3rd....made me chuckle



race 1    slightly above average clarity

5  Good Acktress  best ever in last 1st at a route on conventional dirt...solid drills since...big rider change

6  Silver Luna   on the improve with every start....very strong fig for this level in latest

2  Love You So   showing some ability in 3 lifetime starts....will need lifetime best to land in the circle of joy 


race 2    slightly above average clarity

2  Lost Prophet   tiger on the lead and looks as if she can clear and possibly wire once again

8  Forty Dates   broke slow and ran wide in her latest and still only got beat by 1 1/4 lengths....solid efforts on conventional dirt

3  Poetic Riches   new trainer trainer over this filly dropping down a notch.....eye popping bullet drill hints that he may own the trump card for this horse

6  Twodollarstowin   another with a new trainer since her last......steps up quite a bit but it is 1st time Mitchell which is often quite dangerous 


race 3    average clarity

1  Preferred Behavior   toss out pace whatsoever so ran evenly without a close...debut was decent....jock upgrade and a good post for the 1 mile distance at SA

3  Quietly Waiting   low % rider and trainer but a dangerous team of late.....owns good speed here...wire to wire attempt most likely

6  Balboa Boy   small but dangerous barn has this colt training like he is 100% ready to roll fresh off of the bench in his 2nd lifetime start

4  Sophomoric Venture   like the way this gal finished up her sprint in last......bred fine to get a two turn mile


race 4    average clarity

3  Van Brit   laid up 7 weeks but a ton if she returns fit at today's 40K level...multiple strong figs on Turf Turf Today

5  Giddyup Gadfly   race lacks speed and this mare owns some....should sit close in what appears to be a reasonable pace scenario...Reed is solid 3rd out off of the layoff

1  Wake Me Now   works say ready off of the 7 week break.....3 of her last 4 grass endeavors fit in this spot

4  Caged Mistress   best in route races on the main last sure looks like a sprint tune-up (and a good one at that) to be full throttle today 1st at a distance on the sod


race 5    average clarity

7  Fairway Road  very logical drop back to where Miller claimed and seemingly back to where she can win

3  She's Very Rare   closer only won her last with little pace up front....looks like much more pace to soften things up for her today

4  See N Win  another late runner hoping for that anticipated strong early pace

8  Powers Lilsis   dangerous trainer with shippers from GG to S Cal...will need rebound in form...good "real dirt" history may awaken her 


race 6    average clarity

2  Marrymeonemoretime   loved the SA surface in a major awakening and win in last.....excellent drills since....sure believe she is an improving filly and can pop lifetime best today

4  Park Time Luck   filly has been on quite a roll at GG...claimed....shipped....and can handle conventional dirt...decent trainer 1st after the claim

6  Word Association   4 straight solid efforts which would be very strong here and difficult to beat....but....not too crazy about only one drill since her last ??????

7  Candy's Pleasure   speed of the speed here is training like she is getting sharp...maybe sharper then her last couple of races which aren't bad


race 7    average clarity

4  Siberian Heart  sharp animal these days and her recent work tab suggests nothing has changed

3  Makoma   on the right end of the learning curve with her most professional looking run to date in her last...good post andthe same jock to help the trend continue

11  Gumption   loved her in her last and had that sinking feeling when she had tons of horse left and got blocked the whole stretch....would easily have been top pick with an inside to do for Bejarano from the outer-most 10 post

5  Royal Tiger   1 for 1 on the dirt......very strong recent workout....bred to get a mile


race 8    average clarity

3  Quick Enough   bad trip in last will hide form some....stout turf sprinter with a decent post and rider

9  Amazombie   just keeps getting better and better....ultra consistent

8  Cayambe   gelding has done little wrong since he was snatch for 25K last July

5  Hot Damon


race 9    average clarity

7  Heidi Marie   very strong MSW debut debut especially considering she didn't seem all that cranked up for her MSW debut.......that run plus her solid recent work tab since suggests even more today

6  Love Theway Youare   last was a par like effort...effort 2 back is very strong for the MSW level.....3 lifetime route races will have her very fit to finish well at the extended sprint distance of seven furlongs

5  Spectacular Sky   last two races fit solidly adjusted for her trip trouble....needs to smooth things out and we have the right connections to help her achieve that

8  Eden Star

1  Holy Script
