Los Alamitos for Sunday 7 December 2014

Decent looking card for Sunday. Let's call it a 6.9872 on the 1 to 10 scale.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  Here's Bella   total lack of speed in this much so that this three year old filly that usually sits 2 or 3 lengths off the lead likely will get the front end here and get it with a strong speed rider up

3  Everheart   all three lifetime races on the main track fit well at today's lower level........would have been top choice if the "race shape" fit his off pace style more

6  Hollywood Royalty   race two back fits OK here........showed enough early speed in the race that she might be able to be near what ought to be a pedestrian pace......that would enhance her chances


race 2    average clarity

2  Raspberry Ala Mode   wide trip in latest and a small regression compromised this Hector Palma runner........race 2 back is very solid here.......jock upgrade......1st at a route but owns an adequate pedigree to handle one

6  El Vaguro   on the improve with every start.....away almost 3 months but just worked a near bullet 5/8ths drill one week ago.......lone win came at Lrc and at one mile

5  Smokey's Legacy   not sure if this three year old gelding is as good on conventional dirt as he is on synthetic but if he is he likely will be a major player in this affair........1st at a route but he is bred to handle one 


race 3    below average clarity

3  Zippinaroundtown   lifetime best was run 2 back at SA 1st time running a route.......failed stepping up to a MSW turf route and that is no big deal as she has a weak turf pedigree......back where she fired her best

1  Kat's Hurricane   good trip in last sure would have helped her in her race 2 back where she had a brutal trip.......adjusted for trouble it was the top effort of her 3 race career and was the lone race on 'real dirt"......."real dirt" today.....distance is a ? mark

5  Bella Raquella   turf tightener in latest and now drops out of MSW racing to maiden claiming........should be tough today versus softer foes if she handles the conventional dirt OK

8  Mama's Trashed


race 4    average clarity

2  Zip Cat   great spot for a speed horse and only has 5F to last.......that'll do

9  Runaway Wildcat   very good history on conventional dirt (19 8 3 3) and in abbreviated sprint races......and........his conditioner is winning at a stellar 31% clip for the year

3  Magoo   17 for 21 on the board lifetime.......and is especially tough running at 4 1/2 or 5F

10  Moonshine Ridge


race 5    average clarity

1  All Around Brown    two useful sprint races at SA........solid drills since the 2nd race........has always trained at Lrc and trained decently........seems well meant and ready for 1st at a route which he is well bred for

4  Hero Ten All   27 to 1 for a Mullins 1st timer that ran 2nd hints the horse might have surprised the trainer somewhat......might not have been that cranked up......if that is so he should be much more fit today.......1st long but like our top choice he is bred to handle it 

6  Steam Play   worked extremely well prior to his debut at Dmr.......disappointed at 4-5.........gets a shot to strut his stuff on conventional dirt today........morning glory or just needs the "real thing".......we should find out today

5  Armored Car


race 6    average clarity

1  Silk in Silver   win machine and Mr Bejarano has been aboard for all 5 wins......loves the front end and seems likely to get it here.....very sharp recent drill.....1st Lrc is a ? mark

2  Incredible Journey   moved forward in last and the effort is somewhat disguised by a wide trip on the slightly rail biased day.......seems likely to get a nice mid pack position hoping somewhat puts a little pressure on the 1 horse

6  Wildly Excessive   appreciates the Lrc surface both in final time and better early pace........believe she will stalk our top pick and try and run her down

4  Gelila


race 7    average clarity

5  Alamo   OK sprint debut followed by a strong route race in 2nd lifetime start......away since 3 August but is training exceptionally well for Richard are impressive and tightly spaced......rather sure this colt is very wound up and ready to roll

2  Silent Ruler   poor start and ran way too wide in last........did well to only get beat by 4 1/2L for the the step up out of maiden claiming......might have really benefited from his latest and be on a rebound of sorts.......owns multiple races last winter the fit

4  Rough Passage    consistently tries hard and might be best at a route yet he has sprinted in his last mile today.........very dangerous

7  Ten To Show


race 8    average clarity

5  Princess Bertrando   regressed in last.......very strong effort 2 back.....1st long but bred to appreciate a route on ground......very capable trainer seems to be awakening from the doldrums

4  My Fiona   solid efforts in 4 of her 5 lifetime starts........she beat on top pick in her last but with a better trip......1st long but I doubt the distance will be a hindrance

1  Heat The Rocks   Jerry Hollendorfer's young filly just keeps getting better........and better.......and better.........and


race 9    average clarity

4  Nothing To Hide   solid racehorse since the blinkers were taken off 6 races pace runner sure gets what she wants as in plenty of speed types in the race........should be flying in the late stages if the race runs as it looks on paper

8  Cin Cin Lady   one for one at Lrc winning her debut 3 races back despite a horrid start........last at SA is awfully hidden.......ran way too wide on a strong rail bias day......claimed in the race by Mulhall and she goes right to Bejarano......likely major player here.

1  Norastone   only time up for a claiming price was her debut and she won for trainer seems to know what he is doing and likely has this returnee ready to roll off of the 8 month leave of absence

3  She's Flush

9  Marla Hooch

2  Moscato Girl
