Santa Anita for Sunday 3 April 2011


Some fairly wide open races today in the pick 6 races may lead to a 2 day carryover for Thursday. We shall see. Personally I will pass on the pick 6 today as I don't see even 1 horse to single. And you need a single or 2 for the pick 6 to be affordable.


race 1    average clarity

4  Subtle Creek   efforts displayed in all 3 of her lifetime races fit here....same horse with a even a so so trip should handle this weak looking group

3  Dressedtothenines   showed little in debut but worked well in prep. for her maiden debut...not much in this race so I'm giving her another chance

5  Warren's Hopeful   good chance to be dangerous on or near the lead in this spot unless less 1 or both of the 2 1sters also have speed

6  Tocoi Miss   trainer has been ice cold but he did have a streak in 2010 where he popped some surprise seem good enough to possibly be ready in her debut into the world of thoroughbred racing

race 2    slightly above average clarity

3  Skellytown    fits the race condition well....owns many back numbers that fit on the grass on Top Turf Today....(a soon to be sold pub right on The Racing Digest) good form and sure is a hard trying sort...proven at the distance

1  Royal Import  claimed for the 3rd time in a row usually a good sign....also fits condition well and is bred to get the long distance

4  Gallant Gent   horse fits fig wise but maybe hurt by a lack of long distance pedigree

race 3    average clarity

7  Papa Terry   on the improve with every start and it seems like everything Troeger puts on the track has been firing...passing on 12,500 nw2 and running in 25000 nw2 seems like a good sign for a horse running multiple times in mdn20000...must be feeling great

6  Scored  earned a good fig with a bad trip in his layoff run last....Headley is having a better meeting then his record indicates...same effort with a good trip and solid here

3  Canivore    excellent work last was a gimme lookout with this colt....if last wasn't the barn has it's fingers crossed someone claims him...toss a coin

race 4    average clarity

3  Bellini Bliss   fits solidly for 32K...can get a good mid pack position and ponce in the stretch.....Gaines is hot

5  Siberian Heart   last was poor but it may have been a gimme to return with very short rest at full throttle....a tactic G Stute often uses

1  Lady Alex   big run in last and hopefully she can run another.... she has had trouble repeating sometimes off of strong efforts

6  Divine Legacy   last looks like the tune-up for today....Kerwin John has had a nice meet on the conventioel dirt but struggles on the turf...maybe he can turn that around with the confidence he has gained with his better main track riding

race 5    sligtly below average clarity

3  Dancing At Dark   one of only two closers in the race...laid up but the work tab on the SA surface says ready...won last 2 sprint races quite easily albeit on the AW

2  El Gaucho   ran well for 50K a few races back....drops to 32K today.....Hollendorfer is very tough dropping out of non-claiming affairs

7  Runaway Wildcat   very powerful why the drop....toss a coin

5  Tonzatrouble   very game after being blocked in last......steps up but in for 28K and gets the weight off...good move by his conditioner

race 6    average clarity

7  Excessively Tricky    blinkers woke up big time...flashed strong pace and decent final time......good speed rider up...solid recent 5/8ths drill....decent wire to wire shot here

5  Screaming Regal    whole 4 race career fits here....horrid trip in last 1st at a route and still almost won......I am a bit concerned that this layoff run maybe a tune-up for a route...sketchy work pattern...but if she is meant and ready she is a ton

6  Ckokecherymary   nice prolong tightly spaced work series including some fast works now and then suggests Mr. G Mandella is ready to roll with his 1ster

12  Three Cuties   poor start in maiden claiming debut and finished up fast with little urging in the stretch...steps up and should be ready for more push today

race 7    average clarity

4  Red Sharp Humor   on the improve with every start and the works have never been more impressive....dueled eye to eye in last in solid pace and still managed to win...hard to ask more out of a horse than that

8  Chiloquin   small but very capable barn.....very consistent animal.....earned a very strong number for level in riding Pedroza will need to avoid getting caught wide on the 1st turn...lookout if he does 

1  Uncle Sam   speed of the speed faced better in last....Baffert seemingly has his 3 year old ready off of a re-freshening short layoff

6  Great Warrior   Brazilian invader just missed in his 1st USA start which was on the grass.....ran a par like effort....handle the dirt in Brazil....good shot to fire more today turf to dirt and back quick

race 8    average clarity

7  Crown Of  Thorns   very consistent quality runner is always ready and his recent 5/8th work supports is also a reassuring drill in that it shows he can handle the surface..1st ever today on conventional dirt

1  Atta Boy Roy   10 wins and 6 2nd's on main track set of works for an invader in a very long time...proven shipper

2  Amazombie   very sharp right now on any racing surface...great history with Smith aboard

9  Ventana   very consistent sort is 2 for 4 in the win column at 6 1/2 F and 1 for 13 at other distances

race 9    average clarity

4  Silver Luna   wide trip in last hides her consistent form somewhat....race lacks speed and this filly owns some and gets the right speed rider up to get the job done out of the gate

8  Nice Meidel   showed little last Summer in lone race which was on the change to blinkers off....and better works....believe she is returning to the race wars ready to roll

9  Our Lady Gaga  checked about 7 lengths at the start and then showed she can run some in mc debut last....can be a big factor with a better start today

11  Bella Gionatta   laid up but both sprint races are much better then they appear on suggest she is ready fresh

2  A Golden Jet   2 of 3 races fit but claimed for 40K and dropping off of dull drills ?????
