Santa Anita for Thursday 15 October 2015

Average looking card for today. Let's call it a 5 on the 1 to 10 scale of things.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    above average clarity

2  Comanche Ruler   best at 5 1/2F and on the improve which is somewhat hidden.......takes a small logical drop

5  Strong Like Bull   might be able to grab the lead here and wire as he did at Lrc at 5F from post 5.....same post and 1/2 furlong more to stick......seems doable

3  Ultimate Love   seems to be rebounding.....definitely appears to be the best of the 4 off pace runners in this 6 horse field

 

race 2    average clarity

2  Room On the Broom   seems like a good spot for a 1st timer as those who have run sure haven't shown very much.......trainer is awakening from the doldrums and he is able to convince Bejarano and his agent to ride.......mom has tossed 7 winners from 7 starters.......only cost $25K so why not start foe $50K

5  Chalking It Up   drops out of MSW and has some early gas.......likely will attempt to dominate from the opening bell

3  I'm a Drama Mama   has the kind of sprint running lines that scream out for a route........and Myadi is better than average "1st time long"

 

race 3    average clarity

3  Jazzy Josh   likely to sit pretty.....stalking a suspect speed type in the 2 horse.......OK history down the hill.....solid trainer/rider team these days

1  Clever Royal    late runner is proven down the hill......recent works are improved........and draws Bejarano for the 1st time in awhile.....hmmmm

5  Pepnic   seems to fire his best "fresh" ............7 weeks fresh today.......proven grass runner down the hill........ should be motoring late

4  Pure Loyalty   scratched Sat. for $32K........runs today instead for $50K......might be feeling awfully good......solid back numbers

 

race 4   average clarity

5  Nicaradalic Rocks   par like (for today's lower level) two back sprinting on the dirt........endurance building wide route turf race in last.....drops out of MSW racing for today.....fit and ready for a dirt route vs. softer

4  Storm Quest   sure looks loose here......toss out last as he was loose on a dead rail......speed does well in one mile dirt races at SA

2  Afleet Domination   might be a good claim.....proven route runner is improving........Becerra has not won 1st out following a claim his last two dozen attempts.....might break the mold today

6  Money Makin Mike   bet hard in MSW debut and tossed a clunker........drops and tries a route......1st time Bejarano......not impossible but definitely 4th choice

 

race 5    average clarity

6  Socialized   all 3 lifetime turf route races fit solidly at today's lower level........away 4 months but Sise is decent off of long layoffs.......and his filly is working as if she is ready

7  Sweeter Thancandy   overdo drop into MC following 8 starts in MSW racing never even hitting the board........"they aren't pets after-all"......Glatt is better than average MSW to MC

3  Bijoux   away for over 13 months but best fresh......and......seemingly needs to be ready as this proven grass cutter has been a "one and done" type......both lifetime one mile grass races fit well here

4  Ya Ya Girl   slipping some but gets enough time off to mount a rebound......hot trainer of late.....dangerous with top gun up

Long-shot consideration:   1  Art of War   rotten trips in both lifetime grass races........7 and 10 post in those races.....1 post today.....sprint prep......drops today.....same effort as her previous two grass races combined with a good trip and an upset seems doable

 

race 6    below average clarity

4  Really a Princess    weak turf pedigree and over her head says her last was a turf tightener.......fairly consistent on the conventional dirt albeit without a win ( 9 0 3 3)......5 1/2F seems like a good fit

1  Runningwiththelute   blinkers back on first out following the Machowsky claim......and the conditioner is 2 for his last 6 with 3 others in the money with such a (equipment change) maneuver

2  Moscato Girl   trainer put over a bomb Sunday.......might be waking up.........filly likes the distance (4 1 1 2)

5  Lil Cheyenne   disappointing in last......needs a rebound......difficult to tell if we will get one

Long-shot consideration:   3  Prettyhotprincess    nowheresville in last two efforts.....but 2 for 4 at the distance (1 for 20 at other distances).......and worked vasty better of late.....rather sure wakes up.....to what degree is the ? mark

 

race 7   average clarity

2  It Is Living Water    consistent sort has solid works and the fact that Miller will likely lose this state-bred up for a tag of $20K (to take advantage of a nice alw purse) says......meant and ready

10  What a View   race lacks speed and that is a good deal for this fellow who has some which will help him deal with the tough (outer-most) 10 post........if he clears and gets the 2 path or better on turn one he should be a major player thru out

4  Rainbow North   lifetime best is lone time he ran one mile on the grass......good post - good rider - and one mile of sod here....should be tough

9  Durango Flier   hot trainer and retains Gutierrez who is riding the grass quite well these days......needs a clever ride and the vastly improved rider might provide one

Long-shot consideration:   3  Gab Power   deep closer is at his best at one mile on the grass........hidden wake-up in latest......bad trip and sat way too far off of a pedestrian pace......and still closed well......jockey brings home some nice price shots

 

race 8    average clarity

13  Apparri   training exceptionally well for her return to the race wars.......and drops from MSW racing to MC20K.......seems like a ton if she runs to her works

3  Moossa's Legacy   dueled in decent pace and rightly tired late in her MC debut at Lrc.......two reassuring works since.....same or better seems likely today

4  Emotional Drive   has been getting out in her races.......but new trainer for today and some very fast looking a.m. work.....very dangerous if her new conditioner can get her to run straight one way or another

11  Take it Easyplease   two strong races since her claim was voided 3 back........seems stout if she has another good race left in her....that is debatable

7  Cape's Rockette    obviously one bad claim.........get out time or claim me please.......Bejarno accepts......hmmmm

9  Elimination Round   just keeps getting better.........and better........and better........and better..........and
