Santa Anita for Thursday 14 April 2011


Last week of the majestic Santa Anita Winter/Spring Meeting


Not one race rated better than average clarity but on the positive side we have selected only 1 favorite on top today.


race 1    slightly below average clarity

6  Warren's Dr. Boo   Sise is super at getting maiden claiming 1sters to his pedigree for a race like this

8  Joca Queen    low % 1st start trainer but not in these 2 furlong affairs over the last couple of years....multiple bullet drills

2  Son De America   owns some fast drills including a 22:20 on 30 March

1  Miss Fitzy   1st drill run at Fpx looks like he should fit this kind of race


race 2    slightly below average clarity

4  All The Love   very sharp animal on the improve....appears to love conventional dirt...last chance on it for quite some time unless she ships out

2  Ultra Awesome   excellent work tab for this recently claimed mare....decent shot to stalk a suspect leader who I think will be the 3 horse


race 3    average clarity

5  Mr. Saturdaynight   not much to beat here if he runs either of his last 2 races with a better trip...Talamo is coming off a nice week of riding

6  Manogold   major speed wake-up in latest.....often a good sign of a horse in the sharpening process......decent shot we will see a needed forward move

1  Golden Augusto   chasing some nasty paces and rightfully tiring versus tougher.....can stick around stalking less today


race 4    average clarity

1  Trumpet Player Jay   claimed back By Glatt who had this horse most of his career.....all career on the grass fits well at this level.....positive rider switch

6  Get Funky   declining fast but did rebound some in last on the main track.....continues to train as if he is in good enough health to compete

4  Yes It's A Cat   low % trainer but is does much better on the responds to shorter rest and that's what we have today

5  Leandros   seems to fire most every time but still is only 1 for 20 on the turf and his lone win was by a neck....but.....softest spot yet and Bejarano/Puype combo is quite dangerous these days


race 5    average clarity

3  Free From Ex   hidden effort in debut run.....poor start.....rushed some....and checked on the turn...bullet drill since

1  Deluxe Bus   horrid start 2 back in MSW....sat too far off a total lack of pace in last....drops...solid recent reassuring drill 

6  Depth   decent forward move in 2nd lifetime start....needs the trend to continue


race 6    average clarity

3  Highly Composed   finally placed where she a turf sprint......Ire races fit solidly here...nice price shot if she shows that ability here

10  Ringmistress   good debut run and few reasons not to believe she can't show the same or better today

5  Candys Girl   adequate return to the race wars in last.....should have a good chance to have more left for the stretch run today

2  Lyrical   major jock switch (to Sutherland) for the better....2nd start with Canani is a dangerous thing


race 7    average clarity

1  Lucky Primo   very solid history in route endeavors......big nasty fast paced duel in last off a long hiatus from the track and still only beat by 3....controlling speed here and Bejarano.....very dangerous combo

4  Preamble   vastly improving with every start....2 for 2 on conventional dirt....maybe last shot to run on it for some time

3  Uh Oh Bango  quality well proven runner continues to train as if he is in good form


race 8    average clarity

1  Lucky Sis   obvious looking tune-up in latest fresh off a layoff....1st at 1 mile or greater but ran a good two turn 7F over at Fpx...drops to score

7  Imperatriz   in good form sprinting and now gives a route a try......only route run is tough to judge...strong pace but not so hot a final time fig...will surely need to slow it down in the early stages to be there late

3  Tiz O' Gold   moved forward some in last....another similar forward move and she should be able to contend for the top prize

4  Mystery Bird  seemingly runs best when she has contact near the front end of things....can have that here especially with P Val aboard

8  Social Event   decent improvement 2nd out after the claim......1st ever going long but bred OK to handle a route of ground
