Santa Anita for Sunday 30 October 2011


Sorry for not putting up all the comments but I had a nasty time with my PC this morning. Good luck to all of you. Be back with you next Thursday.


race 1    average clarity

5  Willyconker    tough journey in last hides a decent effort sprinting down the hill....drops and gets Bejarano coming off an incredible 5 wins in Cal Cup Day

2  Waltzing With Blue  after two solid figs earned this gelding sat too far off of a soft pace and still closed well....claimed and his new trainer is good 1st out after the claim

7  Porfido   fragile health but his conditioner sure gets the most out of does P Vail


race 2    average clarity

2  Quiet Invader   long hiatus from the racing scene but working super even by Bob Baffert standards....seemingly hard to be more fit and ready fresh off of the bench

1  Dance With Gable   scratched out of a tough spot yesterday to face easier today....good record on conventional soil  

6  Believe In Hope   very good history fresh and the works suggest history can repeat itself once more


race 3    average clarity

7  Hot Ride   improving sort looks like a ton here if this 2 year old is still in good health.......might be hoping to be claimed but I'm leaning on OK soundness and a win about a rate of about 60/40 on the win side

4  Plenny Of Henny   2 of 3 lifetime races fit solidly here.......good recent drills and O'Neill seems to be busting out of the doldrums

2  Taylors Deal   trainers been cold but ships in with a horse who owns a good looking 1st out of the box win at Hst

1  Unhitchthetrailor


race 4    average clarity

7  Visionary Man   most impressive work series for a laid up animal (1st in the Hofmans barn) for the trainer in quite some time........sure seems well meant fresh........exits a key stout race in lone run back in March of 2010

8  Hy Hand Poker   look at this runner with blinkers on + conventional dirt + 1 turn races --- gets what he wants today

9  Hope And Believe   horrid trip hides a good run way back in say ready to roll fresh

6  Ira The Esquire


race 5    slightly below average clarity

5  Cat In The Forest   race is over loaded with speed (mostly lead type only's) so it is handicapping 101 to select the best late runner in the field....good connections too

3  Thunder Of  Zion    speed of the speed and gets the weight break with the apprentice up

7  Chinese Praise

6  Spot Of Salt

Longshot of the day:    8  Supercarls Remedy


race 6    average clarity

4  Tribal Jewel   solid broodmare of precious runners + solid works for a 1st timer + an awakening trainer + top echelon jock up = top pick-a-roo

2  Heart Fever   Stute is not much with 1st timers but it can be a radically different story with 2nd timers.....dangerous

6  Exoctic Slew

9  Mr. Padre


race 7   slightly above average clarity

5  Graeme Crackerjack    on the right end of the learning curve......only route race was career best.....proven can handle conventional dirt

3  Tiz Liberty   Stute is quite good 1st time a horse runs after he takes over the training are good...rather sure ready to roll

2  My T Quick

8  The Hunt Is On    major sure as anyone to run but I would be shocked if he won


race 8    slightly below average clarity

6  Yodelen Dan    needed race so placed up to 62K claiming in last to keep the vultures away.....back where belongs at 40K.....very consistent sort when well placed to win like today

4  Riveting Reason   1st on the lawn but bred well for it.....very dangerous....big back numbers on the main track....needed last.....full gas today

9  Times Gone By

5  Fifth Dimension


race 9    slightly above average clarity

9  Cha Cha Latte   a lot like a our selection on top in race 3.....a ton if right.....trainer Walsh does have a very good history with somewhat alarming drops

1   Bold Pretense   broke a little slow and the showed good speed in mdn50K debut last......good shot to be on or near the lead in an affair lacking speed...trainer is good with 2nd timers

10  Ansede   last was decent but more importantly the cut back in distance should really help

2  Secret Songbird   improved in 2nd out....needs another move forward to compete for the win

5  Wild History   exits a fast heat at Fpx showing good early speed and there isn't much speed in this race.....positive rider switch......jock/trainer won as a team for us a couple of days ago at 9 to 1....sweeeeet

11  Speed Latte
