Santa Anita for Friday 11 April 2014

Somewhat abbreviated comments all weekend as I am dealing with the flu (hopefully flu) for the 1st time in about 30 years. Incredibly stupid move not getting my flu shot especially considering my son is a Pharmacist who administers them.

Card seems decent today. Call it a 6 1/2 on the 1 to 10 scale.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

5  Como Mi Padre   big sprint effort two back hidden by a bad trip......a ton if gives the same effort and manages a good trip

2  Superboot   GB invader is training as if ready with a tightly spaced work series.....well placed to win in a maiden claimer

3  Grand Humor   competitive sort seems better suited to 6F and gets it today

4  Bad Behavior


race 2    average clarity

4  Gray Madam   good early speed in this spot and seems highly likely to get loose on the lead......1st ever on conventional dirt and 1st long are ? marks...but bred to handle both

5  Joint Attempt   somewhat better since Sadler claimed 4 races back.....might can a nice stalk position behind our top pick

1  Unkept Rendez Vous   nowheresville in last.......race 2 back fits well.........need a rebound to it


race 3    average clarity

3  Nueva Fortuna   nice forward move in 2nd lifetime start with the blinkers on.......the one to beat if she progresses again in 3rd lifetime start

8  Fast Moka Too   best early speed in field and one hot trainer in Ron Ellis.....should be tough here

5  Truly Beautiful   needs significant time between races and gets it.......these kind need to be ready as it won't be awhile until they can run again

2  Brandon's Princess


race 4    slightly below average clarity

1  Warren's Cliff S.   race 2 back fits well........believe we will get a rebound to that effort as the recent works are vastly improved

5  Lucky Cotton   fits well if fires his best.......blinkers off and worked an ultra impressive 5F at LA........seems dangerous

6  Harness Mentality   been facing better......logical drop into condition claiming should make him a player this afternoon

8  Desormais


race 5    average clarity

3  Dulcemia   not much but finds a good spot in one bad mc race.....trainer had a good week last week

7  Chautauqua Creek   good spot for a new shooter.......laid up since mc debut at GP one year ago.....working as if she is ready enough for this pathetic looking field

1  Hot Outta The Oven   significant improvement in last........fits well if she builds on the effort

4  Marthajean


race 6    average clarity

6  Browsing   2 for 2 running long albeit on the dirt........deserves another shot on the sod especially at a route as she had a brutal trip in her lone grass race which was in a sprint

2  In Dad's Honor   on the right end of the learning curve for sure.......1st on the lawn but bred just fine for it......Ellis is making all the right moves

1  Sweet Boss   very strong MSW win 2 races back back in May of 2013......and it was at Bhp.....and horses that run well on the Bhp AW unusually run well on the sod ...........especially if they are bred for the grass as well as this gal is

4  Lil Swiss Echo  (tie for 4th selection)

9  Anniversary Gal  (tie for 4th selection)


race 7    slightly above average clarity

9  Taste Like Candy   been running well versus vastly better........confidence (don't lose track at what it feels like to run 1st)  builder today

1  L T Reckless   crushed the competition in both lifetime conventional dirt races....steps up the class ladder as she did in her 10L win last.......believe she rises to the challenge once again today

8  Satirical   nice MSW debut drills since.......needs to move forward today and likely will

2  D'ya Knowwhatimean


race 8    average clarity

5  Warren's Jen Fizz   impressive 1st on the grass and 1st with blinkers in her last her 2nd lifetime start......retains top gun....more likely today

4  Jennyway U Want It   another with a vast improvement 1st on the drill since.......seems highly likely to move forward 2nd out after the layoff

3  Kantina Kowgirl   solid wake up in last.....don't see the catalyst for the wake up.......but does it matter......... fits fine if she builds on the race

14 AE  Peg's Journey

9  Ski's Copper Penny

1  Cee's Tizzy Belle

2  Exclusive Girl
