Santa Anita for Sunday 11 January 2015

Comments are much shorter than normal as I had to redo the day for an off track and for the grass races moved to the main track. Tough card in that I don't know who is going to scratch out.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    below average clarity

(picks are for off the turf - extra selections as I have no idea who will scratch)

8  Ice Cream Truck   1st on an off track but handles fast dirt and has an OK pedigree to run in the muck

2  Muchos Besos   rider upgrade for today.......acted up in his last in the paddock and still ran well which few seldom do........OK on an off track

6  Ezio   consistently tries hard.......only race though on an off track isn't so hot........deserves another shot??

13  Deep Play

1  Greeley Awesome

9  Prospector's Trick

 

race 2    average clarity

5  Got Even   good with short rest.....looks loose.......ran well on an off track in only start on one

4  I Don't Care Who   3 for 5 at the distance......one for one on an off track........won fresh off the bench like today last year

1  I'll Wrap It Up   improved some in last.......eye popping drill since........steps up when he could stepped down and likely not get claimed.......might be doing great....... seemingly out of nowhere

 

race 3    below average clarity

8  Yana   best stat I know for Spwar is route to sprint.......route gimme in non claiming affair.........go today in a claimer

2  Vocalist   nice mc debut win in last........realistically spotted to score once again.....trainer  is off to a good start at the new meeting

5  Light Striker    invader ends up with top notch trainer in Hollendorfer......seems ready off of the layoff and spotted well

1  Kohala

 

race 4    average clarity

2  Thermodynamics   green (but strong) and disguised MSW debut......Stevens seems likely to right the ship today

5  Lucy Diamonds   dangerous Hollendorfer 1ster has numerous tightly spaced (screaming meant and ready) works

6  Shallot   flashed solid early speed and now blinkers on........sharp recent 5F near bullet breeze......might get away

1  It Girl

 

race 5   below average clarity

(picks are for off the turf - extra selections as I have no idea who will scratch)

12  Cool Moves   very good early speed in this spot.......significant rider upgrade.......bred to handle on off surface

7  Bayonet   on the improve with every start.......very good pedigree for an off track.......continues to train like a happy healthy individual

1  Madam Aamoura   another on the right end of the learning curve.........fits fine if the trend continues

5  Conquest Artura

6  Scandal  

10  Caradini

 

race 6    average clarity

3  Molten Image   away 23 months following a easy maiden debut win.......works say ready once again......spotted to score

6  Gutsy Ruler   cut back in distance is the key and of course the drop helps.......should be in it from the get go

4  Italian Mirage    1st time gelding/sharp works.......good history sprinting at SA.......jock upgrade......a trifecta of good stuff

1  Takem by Surprise

 

race 7    below average clarity

6  My Sweet Addiction   OK off track pedigree......powerful 7F sprint at SA in last.......super drills at Lrc......dangerous front runner

5  Warren's Veneda   if 1-4-6-8 all (or most) press the issue early this late runner should come flying as the most accomplished off pace runner in the field

8  Taste Like Candy   very good off track pedigree........best at SA........1st time Desormeaux can be magical at times

4  Tiz Midnight 

Long-shot consideration:  3 Zilber   off track record in Brazil (7 6 1 0).....yikes!

 

race 8    average clarity

(picks are for off the turf - extra selections as I have no idea who will scratch)

4  El Nino Trouble    needs the lead and seems likely to get it........bred well to take to an off track

7  Toruk Makto    big rebound with the blinkers on in last and the works since at GG are stellar.........and like our top choice bred to handle the gooo

13  Bird House   consistent when routing......and 1 for 1 on an off track........good tactical speed

8  Ashlyluvssugar

12  Tiz a Minister

2  Helm

 

race 9    average clarity

2  Whiskey Wild   sprint debut two back fits at today's lower level.......and a significant rider switch for the better

10  Pat The Bear   bad trip in mc debut at twice the claiming level.......a major player if jock smooths the kinks out in 2nd lifetime start

3  Bandido Too   gelded since his last and that likely is a good thing as this three year old has energy........but..........not exactly running smooth races

4  Muzzled Mousse

7  Speedy Tornado

5  Sir Pal
