Los Alamitos for Sunday 12 July 2015

So so card today is the bad news. But the good news is that Del Mar opens up with a big 10 race card on Thursday. We will be ready!

Best of luck as always!


race 1    below average clarity

1  Datwatdaddydo   nice wake up in wisely steps up his four-year old filly a couple of claiming level.......and luckily they catch a soft looking group

2  Democracy Rules   lead type only will be all out to leave the 3 horse ( only other horse with good early speed) in the dust early......2 for 2 when she opens up a clear lead


race 2    below average clarity

3 Rocket Rhea   not the best of trips in both lifetime starts and still managed to run 2nd and then 1st....... albeit versus easier......seems to deserve today's step up.....and the trainer knows how to get to the winners circle....38% winners from 29 2015 starts

4  Gianis   seems best running with short rest.......9 days since her last.........decent history at Lrc (4 0 3 0)

6  Rich in Tradition   fits OK in this spot but does have a tendency to hang in the stretch


race 3    average clarity

4  One True Kiss   solid work tab at Slr for this Miller 1st timer.......and........he gets Mike Smith to ride who has accepted only a couple of mounts at this meet......sure seems meant and ready

3  Straight N Strong   another 1st time starter training as if she is ready to roll at a high level at first asking.......and mom has tossed 4 winners from 5 starters and they all preciously won at two


race 4    average clarity

4  Lucky Logan   takes that magical drop from MSW racing to mdn 20K and seems well prepared in the a.m. especially considering the low-level of racing

11 AE  Grace and Truth   broke 5L slow in his maiden debut and only lost by 6L......should be a major player with a better break today

8  Relative Time   lone lifetime conventional fast rated dirt race fits fine here......and it seems quite significant that T C Baze wants the mount and he hasn't been on very many this meeting

3  Bar Four   works seem good enough for this O'Neill 1ster.....and mom has tossed an impressive 6 winners from 6 starters

12 AE   Sweet Hero    not exactly my favorite jockey up but this five-year old is training as if he can fit here off of a good-looking prolonged work tab


race 5   average clarity

3  Tester   five year old gelding has won 2 in a row despite bad trips.....might need a little cleaner trip here.....small field should help provide one......good rider trainer combo 

2  Vegas Street   colt has really woken up with the switch to two turns.......last two races fit and today we get a major league rider upgrade.......should be tough

4  Johnny's Choice   best on conventional dirt and best with the blinkers on......gets both again today and he sure seems very well prepared in the a.m.

5  King Budrick   lifetime best was routing on conventional dirt.....been away since early May but Bonde seems to have him cranked up and ready to roll


race 6    above average clarity

8  Jackie K   all three lifetime conventional dirt races look decent versus today's competition.....drop seems logical......been away since May 15th but his best ever was run off of a 2 1/2 month break

5  Papa's Lass   not much in debut but put in a sizzling 4F work since......seems like a possible gimme/go maneuver by Marty Jones who is better with 2nd time starters

9  Lana Caprina   tossed a clunker in last.....needs one of his efforts two or three races back to be a factor in this affair

6  Paralyzing Eyes   doubt a winner.........shot at a piece of the pie seems more likely


race 7    average clarity

5  Savannah Sky   on the right end of the learning curve and retains Bejarano.....and Bejarano riding for Baltas has been one solid jock/trainer combo for most of 2015

3  Fantastic Mizz   just claimed and I like that her new trainer gives her a shot on the conventional dirt which she has never seen despite an OK pedigree for it......solid at 40K on the she handles the dirt she should be a major player on the dirt since the claim are good

6  Egyptian Empire   on the improve and like our 2nd choice she tries the conventional dirt for the 1st time ever today.....away since May 3rd but shows a solid work regiment 

4  Dissension   dangerous rider/trainer combo especially in routes......seems likely to get a nice stalk position


race 8    average clarity

2  Swipe   still a maiden but both lifetime starts stamp this 2 yr old as the one to the ample time off since his Stakes race at Belmont as youngsters usually need sufficient time between starts following a lengthy couple of flights

5  Ralis   nice forward move in 2nd lifetime start......should have a shot at his 1st Stakes win with another forward move today

3  Dubdubwatson   little shot to strut his stuff in last getting caught right up on a decent pace.......likely needs best ever and of course a decent rip to take this affair


race 9    average clarity

4  Masters Circle   seems to own the best speed in this affair......that and the cut back in distance should enhance his chances at graduating this afternoon

7  Dee for Dave   like our top choice he should be in the mix early and looks as if the cut back of 1/2F will be a plus

3  Our Trooper   seems like the best of the off pace runners in this group.....and we get a jock upgrade

1  Arctic Warrior   believe at his best if the jock takes back some.....rider upgrade to get the job done

12 AE   Mr. Cappuccino   best ever was his lone race at Lrc.....only chance to take advantage of the surface till would think the connections would have him ready

8  Abu Dhabi Do   off slowly the ran even....better start and a more fit runner....not totally impossible

11 AE   Rare punch   best of the rest
