Los Alamitos for Sunday 11 September 2016

Just a reminder that we will not be covering Los Alamitos next week. We will resume coverage on Thursday 22 September.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

4  Silk In Silver   very dangerous fresh speed here as her trainer Justin Clark is very high percentage with laid up runners off more than 3 in 6 for his last 12 in the win column

6  Trust Ur Intuition   runs quite well at 5F on the grass but not too well down the hill at's a long time until she can run at 5F on the grass at Dmr and she is fit right my guess is Truman if willing to drop her way down to where she can compete on the dirt.....and he is stout with the turf to dirt maneuver

1  Tough Annie   another laid up runner who I believe will come out firing a good effort....solid works and for high percentage trainer with limited starters


race 2    above average clarity

3  Dashin Ashen   both lifetime races peg her as the one to that Gonzo stays up as this three year old filly has good early speed and he is one tough jock with a speed horse

4  She's Complicated    yet another Baffert/Elliot 1st time starter who appears ready to rock and roll in her MSW debut

5  Hayley's Comment   blinkers on for today and the works indicate the equipment change has worked.......big wake up today seems likely.....but will it be good enough....we shall see


race 3    above average clarity

2  Drover Crazy   seems to be the only one in this field who merits being at today's level of racing........will be bet hard vs. this group running over their heads and most of whom were likely hustled by the racing secretary to enter

4  Magic Taste   improving sort will be waiting in the wings to take down this race if he manages another move forward or our top choice falters one way or another

3  Adair   best of the rest and he is consistent.....just claimed in his last and he goes from D'Amato to Ruben Gomez.....doubt he moves forward but you never know


race 4    average clarity

5  Marvelous Max   strong forward move 1st time at a route....repeat of the effort 1st out following the Sadler claim with a better trip should make him one tough cookie in this spot

4  Foolish To Deceive   decent maiden claiming debut earning a par like number for today's lower level.....and I almost always like a Dollase runner the 1st time attempting a route of ground.....another solid contender here

2  Kenji's Giant   nice layoff run in last especially considering it was a route race.........seems to fit rather well with a logical forward move 2nd out following a 1/2 year hiatus from the game


race 5    below average clarity

4  Tangled Up In Ju   big race 2 back decimating her foes......and her last is better than appears on of the hottest trainers this summer in Machowski.....can he keep the iron burning this fall......we shall see

2  Yodelsong   one for one at 6 furlongs at Lrc.....and Mike Harrington likes to win in his backyard.......well spotted to win

1  Gypsy's Rule   nice effort one mile turf route to 6F dirt sprint on June 24th.....turf one route in last and you guessed it a 6F dirt sprint's not rocket science because if it was I would have another job


race 6    average clarity

3  Spiritual  with the class drop this Art Sherman three year old filly appears to be in the thick of things from start to finish.....might be willing to drop to make sure she takes advantage of the Lrc surface where she crushed in her maiden debut by more than 5L

1  Meadow Blossom   trainer only runs a few each year but when he does take note as they are almost always ready despite any work pattern that they show

2  Papa Mambo   1 for 1 with the blinkers on running on where to be found in her other races.........blinkers on and six furlongs of dirt negotiate today


race 7    below average clarity

1  Heir Of Storm   seems to need easier and drops to get it today....and Baltas has put some strong vastly better recent drills into his runner likely because he and the owners might lose this guy by way of the claiming box and they want one more win before they say "see ya"

2  Toews On Ice   seems like a suspicious drop but maybe not as Baffert is win mode more than he normally is and that is saying something.....Coach Q dropped down yesterday and ran a dull race..... now Toews does the same.....hope this isn't a bad omen for my beloved Blackhawks

6  Pay The Fine   handled his lone race at Lrc rather well nearly winning today's level in April......that race was run off of 8 weeks rest turf to dirt.......turf in last and dirt here this time off of 5 weeks rest


race 8    above average clarity

4  Enola Gray   not quite sure why this outstanding filly is placed in a small Stakes race rather than say a Graded race......hints she isn't doing her best......but if she is at least up to 80% of her potential she still appears tough here

1  Uptown Twirl   3 for 3 on the dirt with blinkers on....they remain on today.....she will be waiting in the wings if the slightly suspect top choice falters

2  Bendable   filly has done little wrong in 3 lifetime starts but will need her best to date as the top two are quite a bit more accomplished


race 9    average clarity

8  Big Miss Streak   very solid series of drills for a bottom level F & M maiden claiming first time starter......and the trainer has been on fire the 2nd half of summer

4  Atlantic Slew   last was the tune-up and today likely a full throttle jock will try to take them gate to wire something that he appears to be very good at

1  Lea's Reward   useful MC debut and maybe more importantly a very good 6F drill since.....not out of the picture in this affair by any means

3  Jeoffie

7  U Go Girl
