Santa Anita for Friday 19 May 2017

Bad news - tech troubles today as you can see with lack of comments. Good news - 11 race card at Santa Anita for Saturday and also the selections for the Preakness Stakes. Will be posted by 8 a.m. pacific. Saturday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  Sheeza Milky Way   in general very consistent.......and.......two necks away from being a perfect 5 for 5 when not racing in Graded races....that is the case today.......Prat jumps on the 5 horse but Bejarano will do just fine

5  Bellamentary   Prat likely choose this filly over our top choice who he just won with.......solid credentials on the dirt.......1st on the turf with a so so pedigree for it.....but Prat wants the mount and a very good grass trainer in D'Amato at the connections believe she will like it

3  Kenriya   needs a rebound to her effort two back........not sure if she is up for it but fits fine if she is


race 2    average clarity

7  Online Request   gimme/go drop 2 races back led to her best so far........same gimme/go drop scenario once again today

5  Princess Nicole   lone lifetime route fits vs. this soft group and she was ridden by a less accomplished rider that day

4  My Heart Is Yours   improved in start no. 2 and it was off of a long layoff....back in short rest so a move forward seems likely.....1st at a route is the ? mark

3  Seaquet


race  3   below average clarity

4  El Tovar   just ran his lifetime best dirt race in start 27 but is was only the 2nd start with Balltas at the helm....and this fellow is at his best down the hill......hmmm

5  Calvert Street   on a roll at Tup and he just won on the grass in his 1st ever on it.......and trainer Eric Kruljak is good with shippers and dynamite 2nd time turf......dangerous for sure

1  Who Cares    decent 1st on the sod (albeit versus a soft group) and it was down the hill......but fits fine here as this is a soft looking bunch once again

3  Senator Robert

Long-shot consideration:   6  Eichel   really flew down the hill in his 1st ever on it.....dangerous speed today if Baze can slow him down some early


race 4    average clarity

6  Quiet No More   way too wide on an inside biased track and in a fast heat....both combined disguise her effort.....Bejarano sticks around......nice improved and reassuring 5F work May 9th

1  Outa Here   lone race with blinkers on running on the dirt fits solidly here.....turf in last......drops today and back on the dirt with the blinkers remaining on....should be tough if holds form

4  Scavenger Hunt   suspicious drop from MSW to mdn30k from a barn that for the most part gives nothing away......but careful because if he is in relatively good health he well be a major player


race 5    average clarity

6  Incredible Luck   like the cut back in distance of one full furlong.....hope Blanc takes back a little as he did 3 races back where this colt ran his lifetime best which also was at one mile

3 Particleacelerator   lifetime best was lone race back in short rest.....and that is the case today.....will try to fly early so as to open up a loose lead and wire

4  Hi Heat Boys   turf sprint - turf sprint - turf route for 3rd lifetime start....right in the D'A's wheelhouse

1  Path of Exile


race 6    below average clarity

5  Braddock

8  Quality Line

6  Colonial Power

4  Whiskey Ginger 


race 7    average clarity

8  Stately Command

9  Ebony Cat

3  Altaira

2  Gianis


race 8    average clarity

3  Dissension

6  Wealthy Shipman

8  Well Caught
