Santa Anita for Sunday 5 April 2015

Hope there are some eggs in the basket today. We sure could use a few as they have been very hard to find of late. 

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

4  My Jealous   form is moving in the right direction...........solid figs in last two......weight off today......Iggy going for 3 in a row  

3  Skip Tony  has been facing tougher levels.......might be at his best on conventional dirt.......always tough combo of Bejarano/Hollendorfer

1  Persussive Paul   fell off in last.....Knapp wisely gives him more time off........likely rebounds.......tough in these Starter races


race 2    average clarity

7  Desert Dynamo   poor trip in MSW debut on Oct 11th hides a good since but working like he is meant and ready

6  Jimbo Fallon   strong works for this Bob Baffert 1ster........all systems go and go from a fairly decent post

8  Rosicky   Gaines has been rather silent of late but appears to have this 1st timer ready off of a prolonged works series and with some works of merit

3  Simplicityizgenius    1st timer shows signs of being ready and the fact that Talamo is up supports the notion as Talamo is 7 for his last 8 in the money for D 'Amato


race 3    average clarity

2  Cal McLish   red hot trainer with youngsters in Miyadi.......last two races fit well and his last is disguised by running wide on good rail day

4  Kenjisstorm   new trainer for today and often a new trainer is willing to take a new horse if the owners place them where they belong......overdo drop here

9  Bandido Too   nice improve in last.....and the cut back of 1/2 furlong seems like a plus

1  Love On the Road   Heap seems overdue to have a "live" 1ster and this fellow seems to be working well enough to be one


race 4    below average clarity

4  Katy Dreams   nice wake up 1st on the grass........bred fine to get a turf trainer - hot rider

8  Autumn Flower   exits a fast heat of MSW fillies down the hill where getting beat by 7 1/2L works out to be a decent fig here......1st at a route but bred very well for it

3  Socialized   nice forward move in 2nd lifetime start and it was at today's one mile turf distance......small drop into high priced mc obviously can help

1  Carnival Lights   not much so far but blinkers on and Sadler is red hot winning 3 straight yesterday....trainers often win in bunches


race 5   above average clarity

6  Enchanting Lady   powerful sprint in 2nd lifetime start last 2nd out following the layoff should be a good thing.......another hot trainer in Mr Bob with the Ky Derby Favorite Baffert

2  Ben's Duchess   solid win in 2nd lifetime since for Sadler and company are sizzling......and the 3 winners for Sadler yesterday showed similar drills and like a fool I didn't select but one off them

3  Sensitively   crushed foes in MSW debut and deservedly steps into a Stakes since debut suggest she has held form


race 6    average clarity

7  Hawkedon   long wait since snatched for $40K in May.......faced better in most of career.......nice works.....Puype can get it done off of long layoffs

12  Incline Village   like our top pick has run well versus better.......usually runs to his works and his recent works are hot

4  Baby Blake   4 2nd's in 4 races down the SA hill......definitely tends to hang so if you want to cut back on your tickets you might consider not using him on top

14  AE  Gold Chaser   lone race down the hill is a decent 2nd......and it was running off of short rest like today

4th choice if 14 doesn't get in or long-shot consideration:   11  Follow Me Crev   1st time gelding today......strong race 2 back to break maiden on the dirt.....1st on the sod but owns a pedigree that says he will take to it


race 7    below average clarity

7  Lolo El Canonero   seems to dislike route racing these days.....sprints 2, 3, 4 back fit......rebound seems likely especially for Belvoir who is often dangerous off of a clunker

1  Porchetto   gimme in last - go today.......why?  only has fired decent efforts 3 times.......all of them were 2nd out after a fresh run

3  Bourne Hot    speed of the speed but at what cost........has had two straight brutal paces to cope with.......that stress might take it's toll.....then again it might not

6  Smokin' Ten   long layoff......massive drop down.......tricky rider/trainer combo


race 8   below average clarity

11  Emerald Star   Grade 3 winner in GB likely needed his last a sprint down the hill......if so he sure fits in this weak looking group that seems ripe for new shooters

4  Elektrum   2 2nd's in 2 races in the USA both at one mile on the sod.......screaming out for a longer race and gets it today at 1 1/8th

7  Moanin   last four races all in France were versus the boys and were decent competitive efforts.....girls only here and training as if Drysdale might have her ready to roll off of the 5+ month hiatus

10  Valiant Emilia   much needed drop out of Stakes racing on the dirt.......has run OK on the grass in Peru in the past.....trainer sure is due for his 1st trip to the winners circle at the meeting


race 9    average clarity

6  Blind Dreams     back to 7 panels today where she fired a decent effort two back......and she likely has more endurance for today running off of a route race

7  Amberella   solid drills for this 1st timer in Jan & Feb especially for the given level......backed off in March maybe to keep the claiming vultures at bay........dangerous 1st timer

2  Del Mar Dixie   trainer is ice but it is hard to ignore the decent mdn50K for this filly.......drops to bottom today.......Mullins needs a winner

5  Sweet Sense   layoff last was and done in the past.....needs to reverse the trend

10  Mudge   doubt 7F will be to her liking.....but.....Miyadi is red hot with his maidens

9  Frannie'sspirittoo    doubt a winner but maybe a slice of the money pie
