Los Alamitos for Saturday 5 December 2015

So so race card (at best) for Saturday. Be back with you on Sunday (which is a good looking card) to finish off week one at the Los Alamitos thoroughbred winter meeting.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

1  Geistreitar    solid wake-up in latest in her 2nd lifetime start and the effort is hidden some........broke slowly and rushed some to grab the lead.......decent shot to be loose on the lead here with only the 5 horse to put away

3  Warren's Purrfect   best of the late runners.....multiple points of trouble in her last gave her little shot to strut her stuff......likely will be closing fast late

4  Bijoux   seems like now or never for this Sadler (ice-cold at Del Mar) runner dropping to the very bottom S Cal MC level......1st on the dirt is a ? mark following five consecutive grass races to start her career

 

race 2    below average clarity

4  Frac Candy   two for two since the blinkers became part of his equipment .......and he owns a solid pedigree to handle a dirt route.......Miller is off to a good start at the new meeting

5  Semper Fortis   solid win in latest to graduate from the maiden ranks......little shot to show what she can do in lone route endeavor as she ran way too wide to have a shot

 

race 3    average clarity

5  Casino Fever   solid debut despite disappointing as the 1 to 1 favorite......broke slightly tardy and pressed a decent pace to fade very late......Baffert is stout 2nd out with beaten MSW debuting favorites

1  Azure Dream   also bet to favorite in MSW debut and in her case she tossed a clunker.......continues to train like she is a good one.......and hopefully not a "morning-glory" type

4  Sharpest One   seems best at Lrc and seems best with Aragon in the saddle......gets both today

 

race 4    below average clarity

2  Swiss Cheese   race profile seems to set up for this consistent off pace runner who ran his best ever the only time she competed at today's 5 1/2 furlongs

4  Cougar Country   consistent since the blinkers were put back on 3 races back......and the cut back in distance appears to be a plus as it should keep him from flattening out late as he has done in his last 3 races which were at 6 or 6 1/2F

3  Ultimate Luck   consistent sort on fast rated conventional dirt...... and his last win came 4 races back in a 5 1/2F affair at Lrc

 

race 5    average clarity

7  Uninvited   on the improve with each and every start and two solid preparatory works for today hint this Bob Baffert runner pops his very best today

3  Kionntal   exits a very fast heat where being a 10 beaten lengths 4th worked out to be a decent MSW debut..... 1st at a route for 2nd lifetime start.......owns a good pedigree to handle the distance and his trainer is better than average 1st at a route

2  Let's Meet in Rio   bad starts from the metal monster in both lifetime startes......needs to break the habit today and handle his 1st ever around two turns......right trainer to gets things fixed in Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert

1  Watch My Dust

 

race 6    average clarity

4  Upbeat Tempo   all 5 lifetime starts on the main track fit well for at today's mdn 20K level.......and he sure appears well prepared in the a.m. with a prolonged work regiment with both speed and endurance put into him for his return to the race wars

6  Red Toro   dangerous when he grabs the lead......seems to have enough early speed here to do just that.........especially.......... with stout gate jock in Maldonado up

8  Magie Moon   not much to date in 3 lifetime races.....but....Baffert gives him plenty of time off and has put copious drills into him in the meantime.......wake-up call today on the drop

1  Game Pegasus

Long-shot consideration:   7  I'm a Keeper Too    nowheresville in two lifetime starts......but.....blinkers on for today and vastly improved recent works......major form reversal might be in the cards for today.....Baze is up and the veteran jock had a field day yesterday with 3 wins and a 2nd

 

race 7    below average clarity

4  Cause Your My Babe   seems best at the distance and best on conventional dirt........and 1st time with Rosemary Trela as the trainer might be a good thing as she is 6 for 17 for the year

6  Private Terrace   needs a rebound and might provide one as this three-year old filly is 2 for 2 on the Lrc surface and only 1 for 9 on other surfaces

5  Privileged One    bad race - drop/good race.........bad race - drop/good race..........bad race - drop..........

 

race 8    above average clarity

5  Patriotic Diamond    2 of last 3 racing endeavors are better than by par (and by quite a bit)  for today's level for this nice two-year old filly.......1st at a route but bred to handle the added distance and draws Mike Smith in his only mount on the card

1  Baby Bea Scattin   broke her MSW on the dirt in her debut........brutal trip in a turf route in latest.......did well to only get beat be 7L.....meanwhile....... she showed she can handle a route......dangerous

3  Roo's Valentine   on the right end of the learning curve and has a good shot at getting loose on the lead.......and if she does get loose.................she..................might.....................go...............................all............................the.................................way

4  Lucky to Win

 

race 9    average clarity

4  Small Town Shuffle   hard trying sort is coming off his best to date.......two reassuring work-outs since......and retains Gonzalez who rode him for the 1st time in his latest

7  Five Star Jack    nice move forward in last ........owns significant early gas......very dangerous speed type if her development continues today in lifetime start number three

8  Swiss Missile   take note of the major jock upgrade:  F Perez is up today not M Perez like last time.......and blinkers off for this afternoon seems like a wise move as this colt ran best when he took back some

2  Star Express

1  Sunny Truce

9  Eagles Fly
