Santa Anita for Sunday 13 January 2013

[private]

Good card Friday as I predicted. Bad card yesterday as I predicted and my selections showed it. Good card today. Hope I am right and we get our fair share of good trips.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

2  Lethal Intent     0 for 20 but prefers the conventional dirt and never has trained so well......7F looks like a good fit

8  Bio Pro   3rd drop in class in a row is not a good sign but repeat of last sure fits well and it is at today's 7F distance

9  Baja Cal   not much in two lifetime starts but the a.m. work sure is markedly better with the blinkers on.....should see a different horse today

7  Warren's Parolee   trainer won with a 1ster earlier this week....this one might be ready too

 

race 2    average clarity

10  Guest Star   solid improvement in latest and very sharp drills since.....sitting on a strong run back on the grass today

8  Summer Hit   great claim by Hollendorfer in this runners maiden debut......made nothing but $ in 5 starts since.....off since June but training as if ready to roll fresh off of the bench

9  American Blend   toss out only turf effort as this runner was gelded since the race.......strong bad trip runs on the AW last winter........mom has tossed 6 turf winners from 7 starters......yikes.......like our 2nd choice this laid up runner seems ready to roll

6  Insideondoutside   bad trip and still broke MSW down the SA hill in last

 

race 3    slightly above average clarity

7  Candera   good chance to get a nice chase or mid pace position........best ever was lone race at 1 1/16 at SA run as a 2 year.......same distance same track today

1  Distracting    nice Baffert runner has never been in a route but sure gets a nice spot to give distance racing a try as she looks loose in this spot

3  Charm The Maker    hasn't brought her A game in awhile but lookout if she does......good sign that Gomez sticks with the filly

2  Curvy Cat   1st long......will need to really like route racing to upset the apple cart here

 

race 4    slightly above average clarity

4  Battled    chased a very hot pace in debut and still stuck around for 2nd.....not much speed in here......so lookout if this Baffert runner improves because he will be stout controlling speed in this spot

8  Demonic   Sadler runner is working like something very special.....will try to keep the 4 horse in his sights.....trains like 7F should be a very good fit

1  Major Affair   27 to 1 in MSW debut especially for an Ellis runner screams the race was needed and more can be expected this afternoon.....Ellis is significantly better with 2nd time starters

6  Del Mar Sunset    Baffert 1ster is bred well to handle the extended sprint distance

 

race 5    average clarity

4  Exclusive Story   Cerin pick up from Crc is 1 for 1 on a fast dirt track and sure is working as if SA is to her liking.......can be in the hunt from the get go

7  Sultry Season    only race with Lasix at SA is very solid.....like most in here it is her 1st at a route but she is bred really well to handle one

3  French Curls    improving with each start and just snatched at the claiming box by Velasquez.......a.m. work since the new conditioner took over hints he can keep the trend intact

8  Cavalla    on the improve with every start.....fits fine if trend continues

 

race 6    average clarity

NOTE:   12 What A Spot  has a shot if she draws into the field from the AE list

7  Majestic Jewel   big (very bad trip) effort 2 back in lone race on the SA hill grass course......stellar works since.......hidden runner has a good shot to fire a good race and at a bit of a price

8  Poster Girl   useful MSW debut and a very impressive 5/8ths bullet drill since........and Shirreffs isn't someone who pushes his stock too hard in the a.m.

1  Nicegirlsfinishlast   another with a useful debut and likely to move forward this afternoon.....good sign Bejarano sticks around

4  Devious Chic   shot if builds off of useful MSW debut which was run at Hol at 6F on the sod

 

race 7    average clarity

7  Chinese Praise    good history with shorter rest so likely to move forward today 2nd out off of the layoff.......drop 2 levels doesn't concern me much as Miller is not afraid to lose a horse especially a cheap one

3  Classic Crusader   wide trip in a fast heat in his latest hides this runner some........and he sure seems at his best at today's abbreviated sprint distance of 5 1/2 furlongs

4  Arresting Officer   lead type only has 3 others to cope with but he is dropping (somewhat alarmingly) two levels and has a decent speed rider aboard who is underrated on the main track

6  Hidden Blessing    best at today's distance......needs to avoid a nasty duel

 

race 8    average clarity

4  Slim Shady   rather sure Gomez will get a nice chase position behind our 3rd choice and be in great position to be formidable down the stretch

5  Fast Track   has outrun his odds in a big way 2 of his last 3 races......best ever on the AW in last and it sure appears he is better on the grass........so.........might fire lifetime best grass race today and outrun his odds once again

6  Chosen Miracle    shot to wire here if he builds off of his winning wire to wire effort in latest his 1st ever at a route

7  Jeranimo   needs a rebound and lookout if he has one

 

race 9    average clarity

7  Duke Street King   solid work regiment for this Kathy Walsh runner who drops a couple off levels off her lifetime best.....trainer could use a win and she has as good of a chance as anyone to get one here

10  Radar The Rat   drop down out of MSW racing will be solid here if he gets a smoother trip than he had in his latest and he displays the same energy/effort

3  Got Heem    fell off badly in latest with the blinkers on.......deserves another shot as the blinkers are removed for today

4  Silk Indian   obvious MSW gimme/drop and go today in a mdn claimer

5  Great Friends Rule

9  Whilly Pink
