Los Alamitos for Saturday 13 December 2014

OK card for Saturday 12/13/14 (that's cool!). On the 1 to 10 scale of thinking let's call it a 6.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

3  Bob Consultation   seems best these days with ample time between starts and gets it........nice a.m. work

4  W. Giles   very consistent..........good early speed in this spot.........might be the one to beat if he is able to handle the stress of racing back in 7 days

5  When We Met   won this race condition and beat a decent field in his 1st start ever on the Lrc surface........decent shot to make it 2 for 2 at Lrc if he is fully fit off of an 8 week break 


race 2    average clarity

3  Collateral   best to date was her debut 3 back in her only race at Lrc.........that race fits quite well here and today we have a more accomplished jock up......away since 10 Oct but the works suggest she's ready to roll

4  Clem Juice   trained at Lrc but debuted (as favorite) on the AW at Dmr........ran so so........gets to run on the Lrc synthetic today.....deserves another shot

2  May I Leave   plenty of foundation put into this 1st timer with copious 6F drills showing.....dangerous Karen Headley 1ster

1  Sweet Union  

Long-shot consideration:   6  Singapore Bid   decent maiden debut last and went off 39 to 1........filly can fit here if she makes a logical move forward......bug boy Boulanger is improving fast and gaining confidence making his weight break more significant


race 3    average clarity

3  Rainbow North   lifetime best by far was her only race at Lrc.......and that race fits well here..........1st at a route but she owns a pedigree that should appreciate the added distance

5  Hold Everything   cut back of 1/16 in distance should help this gelding's chances........lead type only (so far) is training awfully well for a cheaper horse.....trainer is hot 

2  Mon Mousse   sharp 5F work at GG 8 days ago.........different horse when loose and she might be loose here......1 for 1 on conventional dirt winning by 6L and at today's 1 mile distance........does show signs of being able to chase if the 5 beats her out for the front end

7  Qatar's Pearl


race 4   above  average clarity

5  Froggy Fresh   big wake up in 2nd lifetime start....did extremely well to snatch 2nd as she wasn't on the rail highway that existed on 13 Nov at Dmr........1st on conventional dirt today but bred fine for it

1  Natalie's Wonder   takes that ever dangerous drop from MSW racing to maiden claiming..........debut 2 back at Lrc is very strong and would be tough to beat......would have been top choice if I wasn't a touch leery of this $100K May purchase dropping all the way down to maiden $30K

4  Dance Affair   Kory Owens is dangerous with 1st time starters and this filly is bred pretty well.........and she is definitely bred to handle convention dirt racing surfaces

9  Oleanderpolarbear


race 5    average clarity

6  Goof Proof   filly sure has improved since trainer Santos Perez took over.......owns decent early speed and this affair is lacking it especially considering the abbreviated 5F sprint distance

2  Suicide Curves   blinkers back on and drop should help this off pace runner that should be closing fast

1  Wrinkle Room   only race ever at Lrc fits decently the last two drills at Bsr hinting a little bit of early speed has been put into this off pace runner......low % trainer but not at this meet where he is (3 1 1 1)

8  Ebo's Love


race 6    average clarity

8  Apollo Ten   consistent sort......last on the AW at Dmr fits but what we want to see is his effort 2 back on the conventional dirt at SA which is very solid here.......nice reassuring 4F drill since his last......believe he has remained in good form

7  Luckbox Sam   improved since the blinkers became part of his arsenal 4 races back.........big best of 62 4F work one week the lead and that drill should help his chances of getting it today

3  McKenzies Way   trainer has been firing on all cylinders at the Lrc meeting and the work series for this fellow hints he has this six year old gelding ready for a top effort as well

4  Tiz Futurity


race 7    below average clarity

3  Roman Tizzy   much improved individual since the blinkers were removed 4 races back......1 for 1 at Lrc and the race was at today's 6F pace runner seemingly gets ample pace up front to flatter his late run 

4  Tannersmymuscle   turf tightener in last might have muscled him up as the two works since the grass race are improved........cold trainer/rider team (0 for their last dozen) but they might break the mold here

8  Urban Hunter   1st for Julio Canani and that might be a good thing as the trainer's new shooter sure is working vastly if the aging trainer has the trump card for the seven year old soon to turn eight

2  Inspired Wisdom


race 8    average clarity

4  Feathered   big effort in the BCJuvFil..........Todd Pletcher shipped back to New York to train and all the way back to L.A. for today's prestigious Grade 1........that seems significant.............and he gets Mr. Money Mike Smith to ride

3  Danette   plenty of speed in this affair seems likely to set things up for this late runner who sure has been out-running her odds in her last two races......stout brother team in Kent and Keith Desormeaux

6  Take Charge Brandi   Lucas Grade 1 winner needs to avoid a suicidal speed duel one way or another.......she was able to stalk and win in her last although versus easier 

7  Maybellene


race 9    average clarity

3  Grandma Connie   trainer Vann Belvoir seems to be awakening and he sure appears to have this 1st timer training well enough to be fully ready for her debut........and it is usually an easier task to get a 1ster ready for 5F than more conventional sprint distances

6  Alyeska   another 1st timer working as if ready.......and her trainer Kathy Walsh has won 5 of her last 20 with mc 1sters

9  Irish And Lucky   away since May after two lackluster lifetime races but she returns with the blinkers off.......and she is training as if she is meant and ready taking to the equipment change

7  Southern Owah

2  Princess Brooklyn

1  Delmar Event
