race 1    average clarity

6  Summer Vail   recent a.m. work at LA and the switch to Bejarano suggest this Puype three year old is quite ready for her 1st at a route......should be in the hunt from the get go.........in fact she seems to have the best shot to get the lead

1  Scatajawea   another Puype filly training sharply for her 1st at a route and like our top pick she should be a factor from the opening bell.........double barrel action from Puype and company

5  Saint Nata   3 races back fits fine here.......and it seems significant that Gutierrez is back up as he rode that day for the only time.......and..........it was by far the youngster's best ever 

 

race 2    average clarity

8  Smooth Talker   last was better than appears as this mare sat too far off a pedestrian pace......she did well to pass 9 runners and finish 3rd......drills since are improved.......rather sure sitting on an improved effort 

4  Diamante Mobile    Morey is a stellar 33% over the last 186 1st out after the claim which is the case here..........and I like that he bothers to ship a cheap conditioned claimer from up North.......7F looks like a good fit and it won't be for many in here 

2  Quay Factor   very poor trip in last hides a strong effort......drop for someone like Miller doesn't bother me too much but the 1 for 38 (at the meeting) bug boy does......or......would have been top pick

3  Katerrific

 

race 3    above average clarity

2  Miss Boom Boom    seemingly the one to beat despite being three and facing older in early March......graduated versus better albeit in the slop but well proven on the sod in the Midwest

4  Carrick Bay   rebound in form in her last......in this affair if she builds on the effort........trainer wisely gets her out of claiming

6  Sidepocket Run   definitely has the energy/effort to take this but she seldom gets a good trip and especially on the turf......but then again she has behaved decently for jockey Van Dyke

8  Warren's Dixi Bell

 

race 4    average clarity

8  Traweek   never better......and a major league rider upgrade for today.......trainer has had a good Santa Anita meeting

10  Red N Black Attack   last few races fit decently and like our top choice he gets a more accomplished rider on his back this afternoon than he had in his last couple of races

6  Peacenik   impressively went up the claiming ladder in the spring/summer of 2014........then just to opposite occurred following his 24 July race......but has been away since 30 Oct and returns at the bottom 8K level......beat up body might feel good today off of the needed rest

4  Justa Gusta

 

race 5   average clarity

6  Sammy Mandeville   just fired lifetime best (by far) with 1st time blinkers......checked hard on the 2nd turn and still was able to gather himself and finish strong in the stretch.....reassuring 6F work since.....a ton if he has held form

2  Apollo Ten   another coming off of his best ever albeit in the slop.......stout work regiment since the effort.......seems quite dangerous

1  Logan's Moon   colt has done little wrong in 3 races under the guidance of Peter Eurton.........1st at a route is the ? mark but the five year old gelding owns a decent pedigree for one.....and retains Hall of fame jock Mike Smith

4  Twentytwentyvision

 

race 6    average clarity

8  Currency Exchange   sure took to the sod in a big way in his last his 2nd lifetime start.....could have won with a better trip.......Nakatani will be out to make amends

4  Tizzing   solid work regiment for this R Mandella 1ster.......mom has tossed two decent turf winners form 4 starters.....good rider/trainer combo

6  Young And Hungry   solid MSW debut down the SA hill turf course........our top choice was more impressive in the same race but this Tom Proctor youngster surely has the right to improve with his debut under his belt

5  Foreverly

 

race 7    above average clarity

7  Sheer Pleasure    won debut on the dirt very easily......then ran a significant grass fig in 2nd lifetime for today's level of racing.....trainer is hot

11  Lost Bus   all three lifetime races fit solidly here including his MSW debut in May at SA........away since August but working in Florida as if he is more than ready to roll just as he was in May 2014

9  Heat The Rocks   on the improve with every start and continues to train like a happy healthy individual......and that is a very dangerous proposition when the trainer is Jerry Hollendorfer

6  Alwazabridesmaid

 

race 8    average clarity

1  Zimmer   very strong winning race down the SA hill run off of an extended layoff.......nine year old has been away since mid August and sure is training if history can repeat itself this afternoon.....and why not run for only $25K as he is 9 after all

8  Fighting On   consistent sort especially down the hill.....Richard Baltas is having a good meeting......and back to the claiming price this gelding was taken for 2 back......should be a major player

3  Smokey Lonesome  decent layoff run in last off of a 22 month layoff........fits solidly if he makes a logical forward move........trainer has been ice......maybe a turn around starts here

2  Royal F J

 

race 9    average clarity

2  Comealongwithme   switch for today to a trainer who is much more successful than the two other fellows who trained this maiden......and never raced lower.......and the a.m. work at LA is strong for the level

8  Blind Dreams   horrid trip in lone race way back in April of 2014.....she showed the kind of energy that if she returns the same (or better) and gets a better trip she can be tough

6  Bevisioned   seems to have run into shape in non claiming races all on the grass and now drops......full throttle go today 1st on the dirt which she is bred well for

3  Happy's Golden Girl

5  Chicago Angel
