Los Alamitos for Sunday 9 September 2018

Nice Pick 6 carryover for the likes of Lrc. Be back with you on Thursday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

3  Avail   keeps dropping and not winning but this time his number earned is finally very strong for the level of racing.....that and the trainer seems to be in go mode

6  Sharp Holiday   SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE  trainer Vallejo has come out strong to start the new S Cal meeting and he drops this mare 2nd out following a claim below the level he snatched her for.......good post if the track plays the same......should be tough

5  My Ebony Star   filly has something to prove running "fresh" like today but if she handles the 2 month break she should be a factor in the outcome of this race from the get go

2  Coco Smooches


race 2    average clarity

2  Party All Night   decent MC debut and improved a.m. work since.....that suggests her debut beefed her up some and that more is likely this afternoon.......and one red-hot rider & trainer combo as in 3 for there last 6

4  Bam Bams Lil River   Hollendorfer 1st time starter appears to be working well enough to compete for the top prize in this low-level S Cal maiden claimer......and why not start for 30K as she went for only 18K at sale

1  Twitterati   both lifetime races were compromised by slow on seems like a good move......we shall see about 1:28 p.m. pacific time


race 3    average clarity

2  Gypsy's Rule   trainer is hot to start the meeting and appears that he can keep the ball rolling here with this new addition to his barn that is working well especially considering the low-level of racing.......and his new shooter has shown she can handle the Lrc surface

5  Lovely Linda   takes a meaningful drop in claiming and it seems like a good sign that jockey Gutierrez sticks around.........low percentage trainer but he might boost his 3% (for the year) win % here

1  Majestic Diva   major jock upgrade  and drops back to the level that her trainer claimed her for.........dangerous sort and at a price

8  Smart Rachel


race 4    below average clarity

3  Whooping Jay   seems like a good spot for a 1st time starter and this O'Neill 1ster appears to be training the best of the 4 1st time starters in this race......good sire and mom has tossed 1 winner from 1 starter

6  Poppy's C Note   Miyadi is dangerous when he steps up a maiden claimer into a MSW race like he does here.....that and his two-year old just popped a vastly improve work one week ago.......and he likely a good post to boot

4  Take Charge Lucky   2nd best work tab of the four 1st time starters and for a trainer who does well with MSW debut runners......danger city here


race 5    average clarity

2  Rocinante   lone lifetime race run which was run last December at Lrc is quite a bit better than it appears in print........broke 3 slow and then skimmed the rail after that...... and the rail as it so often is at Lrc was hints that Eurton has this colt ready.......and the colt gets one major league rider upgrade

6  Captain N. Baron   seems best at Lrc so you would think the barn would pull out all stops today to have him fit and feeling good.....we shall see

8  Golden Gladiator   2nd lifetime start is much better than it appears in with that in mind this one's layoff last might have been a gimme to blast away today with a 20 to 1 ML to boot

4  Johnny Ray


race 6    average clarity

1  Downside Up   very solid efforts/figs in his last two races and he appears to be at his very best on the Lrc surface.......lacks early speed so Elliot can get off of the dull inside in the track doesn't change today

8  Zapana's Game   turf to dirt and for a gelding that is (2 1 1 0) on the Lrc surface.....that and the connections are willing to drop their five-year old

7  Rhettbutler   another willing to drop to possibly have a big pay day.......good history racing at 5 1/2 furlongs ( 3 1 1 1)........yet to hit the board at other (longer) distances......not out of the win picture by any means

5  Katzumoto

3  Michael Mundo


race 7    average clarity

7  Creative Hit  worked well prior to his MSW on July 1st and ran an effort that wasn't much for the level but fairly decent considering the MC20K level offered here.......away since the July race but once again training like he can run some

9  Royal Seeker   best on the Lrc surface and his race 3 back which was his the last effort run at Lrc is very strong.....and today he get quite the jock upgrade from rider who rode that day........but careful as this 24 start maiden appears to like to hang in the stretch

3  Friendly Steve   believe this three-year old gelding will really appreciate the cut back in distance.......although I am not too crazy about the 3 to 1 ML

1  Serve Me a Double

2  Optimun


race 8    average clarity

5  Typhoon Harry   turf to dirt muscle him up tightener and now drops multiple levels.....and the multi-level drops are right in the wheelhouse of Mike in 5 wins in his last 12 with the move

7  Curly's Waterfront   high percentage trainer in Saldana and he is often at his most dangerous with the sprint-sprint-route maneuver which is the case here........and he is also quite strong with those racing 3rd out after a layoff like this fellow is today

2  Johann's Command   race lacks speed so the switch to speed rider Maldonado might put this gelding on the lead which he appears to appreciate when racing "long"......thus making him dangerous

1  Midnight Soot


race 9    average clarity

9  Conquest Flatterme   SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE    six-year-old mare might be in the best form of her life..........and she is one for one at today's abbreviated sprint distance......also......she  likely is sitting on a good post and with a rider in Elliot who has had good success on her

7  Diamondsandpearls   away since 5 Aug. 2017 but she is working for Baffert in preparation for her 3rd start as if she is ready for a strong effort just as she was prior to her 6 1/4L MSW debut win

4  Tyfosha   toss out last as she appeared to dislike the blinkers going on......toss out her race 2 back as she broke thru the gate.......her other 4 lifetime sprints are solid.......dangerous sort from the O'Neill barn

1  Naugthy Sophia

6  Vallestina

2  Kentan Road
