Los Alamitos for Sunday 6 July 2014

Average card at best today. Rate it a 5 on the 1 to 10 scale.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    slightly above average clarity

6  Wrightwood    on the improve with each and every race......sure handled a route of ground in his 1st ever attempting one

4  No Dishonor   off since last March when last seen at OP but training well........only route race run on a fast rated track stands out as his best effort ever and by quite a bit......welcome to sunny LA where it is more likely that the ground will shake that it will rain....... especially these days

2  Beach Fever   useful sprint MSW debut and shows a nice 4F work since.....bred fine to get a route......doubt can move forward enough to beat our top pick unless of course he regresses this afternoon


race 2    average clarity

4  Nothing To Hide   vastly better effort in last in a race that was 1st time Peter Miller and 1st time conventional dirt.....repeat of the effort makes him a major player and he might improve.......same jock with the same assigned weight

1  Hollywood Producer   on the improve and likely feels really good for Walter Solis to wheel him back in two weeks......feel there is at least a repeat effort in this fellow and possibly another move forward

5  I Like A Kathy   both lifetime 5 1/2F efforts fit well here......both were on the AW at GG.......1st ever on conventional dirt today......pedigree for it seems OK


race 3    average clarity

4  Loop Current Eddie   GG conditioner is high % with shippers and high % racing for the 1st time in a maiden claimer..........and not too shabby running off of has shown he can run if he returns ready (as I obviously think he will) and handles his 1st on LA dirt he likely will be tough

6  Home Run Prize   Kathy Walsh has always been dangerous with maiden claiming 1st timers and she has this four year gelding working well enough so as to be a player in his maiden debut

3  No Bachi   another trainer ( Charles Treece) with a good win % with mc 1sters and training as if his runner is well meant in his debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing

5  Money Tree


race 4    slightly below average clarity

4  Dalton's Gold   over 1/2 of his career sure fits well this fellow is still feeling OK he likely will be tough here.....trainer won with a 1st timer a couple of days ago at LA

6  Happy Idea   similar to our top pick in that a majority of this gelding's career efforts fit here......and he drops......and his health is a small ? mark

2  W. Giles   trapped on the rail inside speed has had a tough time of it so far at LA....but this fellow might clear and it the rider stays off of the rail some he might never be caught


race 5    average clarity

7  Dream Police   mom has been a good sure look solid........good trainer/rider team in Bonde/Maldonado......1st timer seems like a major factor in his debut

2  Seve's Road   O'Neill 1st timer finished up his work regiment at Bsr with 2 of his last 3 drills looking awfully good......good chance he can run some and show it today

1  Peacenluvpeacenluv   Miller 1ster also is training up to snuff especially of late........dangerous

5  Two Six Wins


race 6   average clarity

7  Pride Seeker   34 to 1 in MSW debut suggests the debut was a public work-out.....drills since are vastly improved (blinkers on today) and that more will occur this afternoon dropping into maiden claiming.....hopefully significant more

6  They Call Me Mr. P   been away for two years but his lone start back in June of 2012 fits awfully well here and his a.m. preparation hints he is feeling good with plenty of foundation put in

2  Ron's Boy   both lifetime races since November but he is proven fresh and if he returns what he was he should also be a major factor in this spot

1  Synchrotron


race 7   slightly below average clarity

2  Cloudy Moon   has only seen fast rated conventional dirt twice and both those efforts are solid for over a year but working as if fit

4  Starry Skies   very consistent sort on turf and AW surfaces....1st ever on "real" dirt.......pedigree for it is decent and the works on the LA surface sure are strong

6  Gracie Ragazza   on the improve with every start.....won off of the layoff in last.......improved works since........rather sure the positive learning curve remains intact today

7  Lindz Winz


race 8    below average clarity

1  Irish Presence   keeps outrunning odds significantly.......highly likely to trail the field but if the three outside horses put some heat on each other this fellow won't be trailing when it counts

5  Oma Bugeisha   good history on conventional (4 2 2 0) dirt and seems to be training better of late.......will be tough here if she avoids too hot of a pace.....she did stalk and win last out which was a 1st

3  Maker Or Breaker   0 for 4 past one mile........4 for 5 at one mile or less.........needs just a little more in the tank late......nice recent 6F work......might give it


race 9    average clarity

8  Southern Digs   somewhat alarming drop but a little less than usual as there has been a trainer change since this gelding's last.......doubt Hess would take the horse if he didn't think he could win at this lowly level

4  Cueno   another suspect drop.......does get ample time off since his clunker to aid in his recovery......might get loose and lonely on the lead

3  Forever Freedom  impressive close into a lack of pace in a grass route in his latest.....has won on dirt.....might be flying late

7  Bright Ocean

Long-shot consideration:   2  Es Luna   change in trainers from a 6% trainer to a 30% recent drill on the LA surface.....2 decent back numbers....not impossible
