Los Alamitos for Sunday 25 September 2016

Sure like the race card today. Let's call it a 7 on the 1 to 10 scale of things. Racing starts at Santa Anita on Friday.

Best of luck as always


race 1    above average clarity

6  Storming Candy   most accomplished jock in this field (that's a 1st for Quinonez in S Cal) and highest win % trainer........and like most trainers Lorenzo Ruiz is even more dangerous 1st out following a claim which is the case today

5  No Bachi   nice improvement in latest stepping up in class (and at 49 to 1) and the race was at Lrc at today's 5 1/2 furlongs with the same race condition......jock has a good history riding this five year old gelding

1  Bound for Heaven   broke thru the gate prior to the race and still managed 2nd in the 16 Sept. version of this race.........might be up for even better today with better behavior

7  Eddie Could Go


race 2    average clarity

3  Peppermint Kitty   Miller has placed this one to win now as things get much tougher next week at SA.......and look who shows up to ride in a cheap race.......Kent Desormeaux

1  Holidayincombodia   most of her career fits at today's softer level......likes the distance ( 2 1 1 0)......1st on the Lrc surface a ? mark

4  Desert Smoke   low % rider and trainer......but........last race (her 1st ever at Lrc) sure fits and since the effort she worked an impressive speedy billet 3F gate work......dangerous (blinkers on for today) three year old filly


race 3    average clarity

6  Irish and Lucky    sure likes the Lrc surface and it showed in a strong layoff run in last......that race fits and there is a good chance this six year old mare moves forward 2nd out after the layoff

8  Silk in Silver   likely needed her last having been away since early November........consistent filly will likely want the lead and needs to put away the 5 horse to get it......good post and rider upgrade to get that accomplished

4  L. A. Magic    need to lead type in the past has learned to rate.......that new found versatility sure makes her a much more dangerous filly

2  Oleanderpolarbear


race 4    average clarity

6  Rough Passage   lead type only has run two stellar efforts in his only two races on the Lrc fact his last suggests he can handle a stout set of fractions (which he likely will face today) and still be able to find the winners circle

4  It Behooves Me   scenario is:   2 - 3 - 6 bang heads early and often........if that occurs this mid pack runner should be in the driver's seat

2  Alltheleavesrbrown   believe this four year old will tire badly if he goes after the lead........shows some signs of being able to rate off of the lead some......seems wise to take that tactic today


race 5    average clarity

2  Holograeme   likes the Lrc surface ( 2 1 1 0) and sure ran a solid turf to dirt race the last time this filly had a opportunity to run at Lrc which was on Dec 19th......turf in last.......dirt today......and a solid rider & trainer at the helm

3  Take It Easyplease   another who sure appreciates the Lrc surface ( 3 1 2 0)......and has been very consistent "at the distance" with a record of ( 4 1 2 1) .......and like our top choice has the support of a good rider and trainer

4  Roo's Valentine   last win came turf to dirt at Lrc (last Dec.) and the effort would fit here if she can duplicate it........dangerous for sure


race 6    average clarity

1  Thunder Basin  solid layoff win in latest........Mulhall five year old gelding seems extremely "well meant" for this race with a series of 3 nice preparatory works......seems better suited for sprint races to me and the barn might be thinking the same these days

7  Swiss Cheese    1st start in 2016 was on the July 17th and since that "needed race" things are on the improve.....last fits and if this fellow manages another forward move he should have been put as the top billing in the race

8  Changing Karma   seems better suited for 5 1/2 furlongs but 6F might be within his reach........if that is so he should be a factor in the outcome of this race.....low % jock but his karma is good riding this guy as he owns 2 wins in 2 mounts on him

4  Quorum Of Joy


race 7    average clarity

2  Never Say Try   big debut winning by double digits......then a bad tip led to an off the board finish in his 2nd start.....see ya bug boy and hello Gonzo.....good a.m. prowess of late......rebound seems likely in his 3rd start

4  Prohibition Repeal   not the strongest of figs but sure has fired every time when sprinting and won the 24 August version of this race at Del Mar

5  Signature Cat   just claimed by Miller and he appears to have the trump card for this gelding as he just worked an eye popping 58:2 bullet work at Lrc seemingly out of nowhere......very dangerous if he handles his 1st on the Lrc surface

3  Tiz Love


race 8    average clarity

8  Pretentious   decent chance this Cassidy runner is better on main track surfaces and might have spent too much time racing on the sod.....last dirt race which was 3 back fits solidly here and was run turf to dirt off of 5 weeks rest.....turf in last and 5 1/2 weeks rest this time........hmmm

2  Lucky J Lane   didn't think this fellow would take to the dirt at all in his last but he sure our top selection he might have found a new home....that being main track surfaces

4  Indygo Holiday   lone race at Lrc is a good in his lifetime best.......was a vet scratch 3 weeks ago but he has worked great since.....very dangerous

6  Tough It Out


race 9    average clarity

9  Warren My Boy   likes to hang in the stretch but he does his best running at Lrc.....and ......he has shot at getting loose on the lead which is where you want a horse that likes to hang to be

2  Olimpio's Scat Cat   trainer has had a good meeting with limited starters.......four year old should get a decent shot of getting a nice ground saving mid pack or stalk postion in the race......shot at the circle of joy if he does

6  Resistanceisfutile   solid a.m. prowess for a good portion of his career........and finally he is starting to transfer that prowess to the p.m......might come flying today with the 7 lbs bug boy up today

8  Super Swiss

10  Silver Chrome

5  Dark Encounter
