I might have some computer issues this week as my equipment is on the fritz. So I bit the bullet and ordered all new which won't come until next week. I am very excited as I will have a much more powerful PC and two large monitors to help me with many aspects most of all the note taking of each and every race run in S Cal and sometimes elsewhere. Thanks for your patience.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

6  Titled Nobility  GG invader with solid figs seems likely to sit in a good stalk position.........six year old handles the AW or conventional dirt.......and he draws the meets top gun in Bejarano 

4  When We Met   low % jock in S Cal but not on this fellow......good history racing this low but is at his best in sprints or would have been top selection

1  Dress Code


race 2    average clarity

6  Queen Cactus   nice debut and I doubt she was all that cranked up as she went off at 15 to 1 in a 7 horse field and for a hot barn......drop of one small level doesn't bother me too much as she went for under $10K at sale.......last fits.......logical move forward makes her very tough

2  Prettypreciousheir   owns good early speed and takes the ever dangerous and almost magical at times drop out of MSW racing......away since early December but training well since especially at Bsr

5  Twinkle Toes


race 3    below average clarity

5  Aparri   not much in 2nd lifetime start which was at Lrc........debut which was run at SA is decent beating 7 of 12 MSW runners.......away since 21 Dec but she has an impressive prolonged work series since.......and her trainer Bruce Headley is at his most dangerous MSW to MC

3  Alpha Doll   been absent since his solid two year old debut on 23 June 13 at Crc.......draws Bejarano and isn't eligible to be claimed.........decent a.m. work.........seems meant and ready fresh off of the extended hiatus from the game

1  West Mid


race 4    average clarity

4  My Jealous   was shocked that this five year old won from off of the pace in his latest as he sure appeared to be a lead type when a runner successfully changes his running style for the 1st time and especially so when they run a strong improved fig.......trainer has good stats stepping up and with repeat winners 

6  Bluegrass Reward   very consistent sort drops one notch following the claim which doesn't bother me much especially with two decent recent drills showing.........14 for 18 in the money on conventional dirt and most of those races were at SA.......should be a major player 

3  Broadway Nika


race 5   average clarity

1  King of Jazz   away 11 months since a decent MSW debut which was also a one mile grass race......returns with a better work tab.....and a better rider.......and for a red hot trainer who is much hotter than he was when this horse debuted in April of 2014

4  Wicked Finance   most of his six one mile grass efforts fit solidly here and he seems poised for another.......but.....he needs to get over his tendency to hang in the stretch

8  Winning Causeway

3  To The Bar


race 6    average clarity

9  Let's Get Frisky   very consistent on conventional dirt including the SA dirt.......ships in from Tup seemingly sharp.......and her mid pack running style sure fits the way the SA surface has been playing the last couple of weeks

6  Zulu Petals   her whole career fits very well and she retains the meets leading jock........would have been top choice if she didn't show a tendency to flatten some at 6 1/2F.......and this is her 1st ever as far as 7F 

3  It's Aine

2  Cause Ur My Babe


race 7    average clarity

7  Jules Journey   gelding is a very consistent grass horse on the SA sod.......11 for 13 in the money........trainer/rider have pulled off multiple upsets as a team at this 2 1/2 month old meeting

6  Boozer   seems like he owns the best early speed (and sems capable of rating if need be) and that gives Hall of Fame rider Gary Stevens a shot at being in control of the race......that is a dangerous proposition

4  Talco

5  Calm Pacific


race 8    average clarity

9  Majestic Charlie   on the improve with every start and his latest is disguised by a wide trip......3 reassuring works since.......chances are enhanced if the track remains kind to wide route runners as it has been for the most part the last couple of weeks

8  Setthebigboysfree   another on the right end of the learning curve with few reasons not to believe the trend can't continue this work showing in quite some time on March 5th only one week trainer rider combo

4  He's A Real Keeper

1  Italian Jumper

2  Swing For Defence

10  Weekendwithbernie
