Santa Anita for Friday 10 October 2014

Not one morning line favorite as our top choice yesterday ( 3 top picks won almost doubling your money) and today we have only one top choice morning line favorite.  Hoping for the same results.

Good looking card on Saturday. Hope you join us.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    slightly below average clarity

5  Plazarita   race seems set for a runner capable of coming from out of it like this gal.......believe she is feeling good as her two works since her last race are quite a bit better than what she has been working for quite some time

6  Putahexonher   bad trip in last or could have been "right there" at the wire versus better.......drops below claiming price where Carava snatched her for two races back.......crunch time today

4  Silk in Silver   easily best win % in the field and does well with Bejarano on her back.......just claimed by Mulhall and she has her new filly working nicely......would have rated higher if this speed horse didn't have to face 3 other speed types in the race


race 2    average clarity

4  Speedy Tornado    50 to 1 in mc debut hints this Machowsky two year old wasn't all that wound up for debut and yet he ran fairly well......drops and working well at SA for his 1st on the dirt..........race under his belt training well at SA / drops.......should be in the hunt today for the lone diploma given out (barring a dead heat) 

1  Karaoke Cat   so so trip in mc debut last and still snatched 3rd.........major league rider upgrade and in for the same mc $.........should a major player in his 2nd lifetime start

2  Dr. Vincentstein   not a good sign to say the least when you claim a youngster for 62K and run him back for 30K.......Cerin gives little away but maybe this gelding has one race left in him before being put on the farm for whatever has very likely gone wrong with him

7  Dance Dee a Door


race 3    slightly below average clarity

5  Dream Police   2 of 3 lifetime races on main track surfaces fit fine for the MSW level.........1st on the grass but this two year old is bred OK for it...........big bullet drill worked just one week ago.......might be feeling awfully good

9  Rock Shandy   Peter Miller 1ster sure is nicely bred to handle the grass and he is training as if he is well meant in his debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing........well.........maybe not all that wonderful for Doug O'Neill who has been put out of operation for awhile

1  Battle of Evermore   nice forward move in 2nd lifetime start and his debut wasn't too shabby.......owns a decent pedigree to handle the grass although mom has yet to produce a grass winner to date......maybe her 5th starter produced will change that 

4  My Charlie Boy


race 4    slightly above average clarity

1  Fascinating   laid up Baffert filly (for over one year) is working as if the world class trainer has his Grade 1 placed youngster all set to graduate back versus maidens today

3  Live for Now   so much at her best when running on the SA surface......should welcome getting back on it this afternoon........16 to 1 surprise 2nd place finish 2 races back in a Grade 2 at SA........back versus MSW foes today

7  Firefly   expensive runner at sale didn't show much in her MSW debut but has always worked well and has a pedigree that screams 'Route".......deserves another shot

6  Art of War


race 5    average clarity

6  Sunset Skies   solid history sprinting with the blinkers on including two grass sprints down the majestic SA hill grass course........jock knows the filly well having been aboard for all six of her lifetime starts

1  Fantastic Mizz   very competitive mare when competing at the 40 to 50K claiming level.........40K here and handles the SA hill grass course quite well

2  Blake's Magic   improved a.m. work for this Mike Puype (who now takes over the training duties) four year old filly........the drills hint the new conditioner might own the trump card for this filly and that he might get a top effort out of her.......fits fine if he does

3  Brilliant Melody


race 6    slightly below average clarity

5  Nueva Fortuna   on the right end of the learning curve and pulls back to the claiming price Ron Ellis claimed her for.......that is a dangerous scenario for her competition especially since she is (2 1 1 0) at the distance and (6 2 2 0) at SA

6  Small Moves    might own the best early gas in the field and might be at his best at SA.........claimed over two months ago but drops one notch and training well enough to be ready off of the 2+ month break

8  Jetbird   two straight significantly better efforts since the blinkers were taken off........and now an eye popping bullet 4F drill put in and put in at SA for his brand new trainer Shaun Morrow

1  Tim's Go Gil   (tie for 4th pick)

2  Gelila   (tie for 4th pick)


race 7    average clarity

3  Mega Heat   stellar record of (8 4 2 0) on the SA grass course and he is usually very well prepared when up for a tag which he is today

7  Kulik Lodge  done little wrong in 3 lifetime races spread over 13 months.......strong work regiment in preparation for today and a pedigree that screams "the longer the better".......should be in the hunt from the get go which is often a good thing with the rail all the way out

2  Pure Loyalty   2 for 4 on the SA grass course versus 0 for 7 on other grass courses........does well with ample time between starts and Glatt wisely gives it to his four year old colt

8  Ethnic Dance


race 8    average clarity

2  Miz Penelope   takes that ever significant drop out of MSW racing to maiden claiming........and likely is better suited to conventional dirt

1  Scatchmeifyoucan   owns some dangerous early foot.......and the cut back in distance ought to be a plus...........very sharp recent near bullet drill..........might never look back

9  Freakin Amazing   fairly decent debut and a good work series since..........better seems likely today........combine that with a drop of a couple of mc levels and you get a major player in this affair

5  Honey Nugget

8  Lady Danger

7  Discreet Flirt
