Los Alamitos for Sunday 21 December 2014

Hope everyone has wonderful holiday experience!

Be back with you Friday for opening day at Santa Anita!

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

3  Armensky   cut back on 1/2 furlong is a plus.......and an improved work tab since his latest is a plus.........wire shot and with Bejarano in the irons

4  Preordained   dangerous sprint speed tries a route again.......route two back isn't so hot.........but nor is this field.......deserves another at a route

6  Broacaster   declining three year old is training better since his last......needs a rebound to his effort 3 back........works hint he might be up for better this afternoon......to what degree is the ? mark

2  Mojave Desert

 

race 2    average clarity

3  Charming Karma    trainer is a ridiculous 40% win with 30 starts this year...........four year old gelding fits solidly in a condition claiming 8K affair

7  Justa Gusta   does OK in abbreviated sprint races.....the shorter the better.......only five panels here and a gets a weight break of 7 lbs with the switch to the bug boy.......which I view as a positive in this case

5  Late Night Sky   bad trip in last ( broke slighty tardy and ran too wide) somewhat hides an improved effort in latest........likes the Lrc surface ( 3 - 0 3  0)......should come motoring late

6  Mary Helen's Storm

 

race 3    average clarity

4  Sheza Eyeopener   3 for 6 on main track surfaces since the blinkers were put on.......very strong effort/fig in last......a ton if repeats it with...... of course...... a decent trip

3  Runningwiththelute   best early speed in this affair and a good speed rider up in Malnonado........last chance to run on the Lrc surface until next summer........and she owns 2 wins and 2 seconds from 4 starts on it

1  Papalilprincess    appreciates ample time between races and gets it.......dangerous N Cal trainer........fits fine with today's foes if she brings her "A game" which I believe she will

 

race 4    average clarity

1  Ace Deuce   sharp improved recent 4F drill.........very dangerous rail speed and with a 7 lbs. bug up.......might get away and hide

7  Fast Mast   arguably the lifetime best for this fellow was the lone time this Harrington five year old ran a route (and of one mile like today) on the Lrc surface........the effort/fig sure fits solidly here

6  Burning   better horse since the blinkers were added two races back.........would have been top pick he she had shown more ability on conventional dirt surfaces

5  What We Doing

 

race 5   average clarity

1  Radiant Journey   trainer is on fire at the meeting and sends out this youngster who had a decent MSW debut and if her recent works are worth a hoot she is going to show even more in start number two

3  No Comparison   useful MSW debut and a nice work series since.........especially like the quick 3F drill worked just 3 days ago.......that work hints their filly will be predominate from the get go

4  Beyond Lucky   broke about 8 lengths slow in her MSW debut and then showed plenty of run after the disastrous beginning........training decently since........seems dangerous today in her 2nd lifetime start with a gook exit from the metal montster

7  Seattle Salt

 

race 6    below average clarity

1  Bluegrass Reward   inside speed and a good deal switching (both low percentage) jocks to one that gets 7 lbs off.....should be on or near the lead from the get go

6  Gilligan   very consistent off pace runner on multiple main track surfaces ships south and draws Bejarano.......that says the gelding is doing well.....and if he is he is highly likely to be a factor in the late stages of this race 

5  Contributor   plenty to prove on the conventional dirt but drops and is working fairly well on the dirt at SA.........seems somewhat dangerous

8  Shun

 

race 7    below average clarity

10  Big Hat Charlie   so so on the AW in 2nd lifetime start......but his debut two back was a key group and strong especially pace wise.........good shot to range up from the outside here and be tough to reckon with

6  Pocketball   good mc62.5K debut in last and deservedly steps up.........last fits fine..........might be the one to overcome with a logical forwrd move in his 2nd lifetime endeavor

5  Nob Hill   decent works for this expensive Baffert 1st timer but I am a bit concerned he is starting his career at Lrc instead of SA as he went for $700,000 at sale.....still Baffert has been on fire all meet long

4  English

 

race 8    average clarity

3  Celebrity Status   last was OK....race 2 back is very strong and somewhat disguised by running 3 wide up close to a hot pace.........same effort - better trip- good shot at the circle of joy

1  Reno Rebel   last 2 of 3 dirt races would be tough here........up for $40K today.........claim me please.......or........just what to win regardless of the threat of being claimed.......we shall see

7  Brando the Birdman   hard to argue with 3 wins and a 2nd in 5 main track races and a perfect 1 for 1 at Lrc

8  Sirocco

 

race 9    average clarity

11  Flyin for a Livin   race lacks early speed and this filly appears to have the most.......and gets 1st time Bejarano.......such a deal

9  R Lil Hartbreaker   works seem dangerous looking for this 1ster......tightly spaced and some works of merit.....trainer is 1 for 2 at the meeting

12  Wine Country Wanda   best ever in 7 lifetime races was run in 2nd lifetime start off of 3 weeks rest......so 2nd out after a 5 month hiatus and back in 3 weeks rest should make for a dangerous runner

4  Council Talk

3  Bea's Bench

6  Warrensdollarsigns
