Santa Anita For Friday 1 April 2011

[private]

Not the best of cards today but then again I liked Thursday's card and you know I wasn't right about that assessment.

Either way I always put a lot of effort into my selections and analysis. It's always a new day and hopefully a better one!

race 1    average clarity

3  So She Dances   race lacks speed and hot riding P Val is aboard this filly who has a decent shot to get loose with reasonable fractions

1  Beautiful Sunday   10 post to 1 post and a decent races over the grass.....also can sit close in this race seemingly lacking pace

7  Miss Belleo's Cause   trainer hardly shoots to have MSW 1sters ready to roll in their debut but the works here are too good to ignore...nicely bred

race 2    average clarity

4  Love Theway Youare   last wasn't bad but what we want are her route efforts 3 and 4 races back...extra 1/16 of a mile today a plus for this late runner.....under the radar jock is good with route closers

1  Hedi Marie   big debut run followed by a strong (somewhat hidden) 2nd start...1st at a route is the ? mark

2  Working At Night   consistent sort is on the right end of the learning curve...good shot the trend continues

race 3    average clarity

3  Le' Heat   got very sharp mid Winter when we selected him at 12 to 1 and he won.....seems to be rebounding to that form and we get 1st time P Val which has been a good thing since his re-instatement into the jockey colony

7  Willyconker   faced quite a bit better when last seen Spring of 2010......work series suggests he's ready to compete versus softer and keep from being renamed Willyclunker

6  Jeffrey's Grove   drops...better jock up....and has speed in a race that lacks it

8  King Ledley   gelded since last....ultimate equipment change may settle down and wake this 4 year old up...possibly to the ability he showed in the Midwest last Summer

race 4    average clarity

7  Dramatic Reward   checked early to dead last and then ran inside on a somewhat dull rail...nice hidden move forward...Nakatani will be out to make amends

5  Tribal Mistress   bet rather hard in debut in MSW...drops to mdn claimer and Puype is as dangerous as any trainer on the grounds going from MSW to mdn claiming

2  No Rules Tonight   last 2 drills for this 1ster indicate that she is very sharp when it counts the most

3  Judy's My Angel   decent effort in mc debut last....barn is better with 2nd time starters and Rosario sticks with the horse

race 5    slightly below average clarity

5  Booyah   price shot sure seems to be on the improve....runs well with a couple of months between starts...owns a strong 1 1/8 mile back number on Top Turf Today run in 2009 and it was run at SA

2  Red Alert Day   well placed to win on the drop down to 32K claiming 1st time out for his new trainer

3  Ridge Dance  long overdo drop for this gelding who is nowhere close to earning his keep in limited starts in alw races...maybe now or never

6  Hughesy   scenario is......dirt race off of the layoff...did not like...2nd start back on turf....didn't care much for the"good turf"....proven on firm turf and back to it today and willing to drop

race 6    slightly below average clarity

7  Dana Dynamo   last was needed and we should see more today....nice 2 for 2 at 7 1/2 furlongs......needs to get 1/2F more and handle two turns which I think he will

4  Kanan Dume   laid up but training as if he is well prepared in the morning to pop fresh off of the bench....jock maybe awakening...nice ride on our 3rd choice yesterday winning at 12 to 1

10  Equiparado  drop city here.....please claim me....or....winners circle here I come...toss a coin

9  Saravas Wild Again   just claimed and returns running for the same price...nice 3 works hint V Garcia has improved this gelding...very capable trainer 1st out after a claim

race 7    average clarity

6  Warren's Got Game   last couple races are solid and now this filly just worked very fast...might be sitting on lifetime best

5  Dubawi Heights   on the improve with every start in the USA.....maybe ready to duplicate GB form which is quite good

1  Come Touch The Sun   lone turf race run in a sprint is decent...1st route career race but bred to handle the two turns...strong recent 5/8ths drill

race 8    average clarity

11  Lead Blocker   powerful debut 3 back (bad trip)....OK 2nd start.....multiple trouble (somewhat subtle) in last.....average trip and the same horse wins this

10  Clocker Moment   just keeps getting better and better and better and better and.......

2  Slews Dark Knight   useful mc debut run in last...... N French has a total of  4 wins for the meet....Bisono has 4 wins in 7 mounts with French........hmmmmmmm

4  The Full Lavino   declining sort finally made a small forward move in last....lookout if he is in a comeback mode

6  Tsunami Warning   trainer is having a decent meet with limited starters.....and 2nd out under his auspicious usually is a good thing
