Santa Anita for Sunday 13 June 2021

Seems like a decent card this afternoon. Be back with you on Friday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

6  Ellie Arroway   good history with a low % turf rider in Victor Espinoza up in one mile grass races like today (6 2 0 2 2).......away since Jan. but this mare's work tab is impressive........five year old should be on or just off of the lead.......O'Neill is 36% win 2nd following a claim and that is the case here

2  Keep Dancing   two wins and a 2nd for this filly since going on Lasix and all of the races were turf routes and with today's rider Valdivia up........trainer Mulhall has had a very nice meeting......jock/trainer are (4 3 1 0) over the last two months as a combo

3  Kleen Karma

4  Pushing Sixty


race 2    average clarity

1  Chollima   just claimed by Andrew Lerner 3 weeks ago making for a trainer upgrade and Andrew is 21% win 1st following a claim with his last 43........good to see Abel Cediilo ride thru the claim as he is (6 3 2 0 1) on this four year old filly who has as good a chance of grabbing the lead as anyone in this 4 horse race

5  Bella Renella   claimed two races back by Miller and Peter drops his newbie multiple levels after getting overly ambitious with his new filly 1st out after the claim........small field should help bug boy Ortega stay out of trouble making his 7 lbs weight break more advantageous than it normally would be


race 3    average clarity

2  Exultation   solid better than par (adjusted for trip) Santucci fig in his latest and his previous 3 grass sprints fit fine as well and Rispoli was aboard for all of them........hard not to like

1  Rager  four year old has handled the 1 post well the 4 times he has drawn it and all of the races were grass sprints......that and trainer Lerner is able to lure Prat and his agent to accept the mount........another who should give a good account of himself today

3  Best Chance


race 4    average clarity

1  Beyond Brilliant   inside speed in the one mile dirt races at SA for about 95% of the race days in 2021 has been a distinct advantage and this fellow sure seems loose in this spot unless the 1st starter number 3 has some early gas.........J J Hernandez wisely stays put

5  Whistleblower   no action on the board for this Mandella colt in his debut which was a turf route with Pyfer up........race might have been nothing more than a muscle him up run as only the turf can do are better since his debut and look who shows up for his lone mount on the 11 race card........Mike Smith

2  Magnificent


race 5    average clarity

7  Unilateral   successful young trainer Andrew Lerner has an solid stat that applies here as in "2nd time start with the trainer".........that and stout turf jock Umberto Rispoli stays put.......lone lifetime race at 9F on the grass is much better than appears in print as he had a bad ride by a jock that finally got his 1st win on the grass in 2021 (with our top pick I might add) on Friday

2  Hapi Hapi   last two races which were run on the dirt at a lower level fit fine here if of course this gelding can race better on the turf than he did in his lone effort on it in Feb........but take note he was dead on the board and he ran way over her head hinting that is was a gimme.......pedigree for the grass is good........hmmm

5  Racetarckers

4  Railsplitter

8  Achilleus


race 6    average clarity

6  Sauls Call   tough trip in his MSW debut hides an effort that is better than it appears in print.....that and today we get quite the rider upgrade especially so for a baby race.........Steven Miyadi has had a solid 2021 at SA and might add to his 22% win total here

8  Aspen Shade  SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE  bet hard in his MSW debut and ran 2nd in a time that was nothing special.........that race might do the trick but he likely will need a little better and he might provide with a race under his belt

4  Finneus

5  Fowler Blue

9  Mr. T's Thirsty


race 7    average clarity

6  Good Bye Putin   solid race with the blinkers off taken and this gelding seems at his best with them off......the strength of the race is disguised by a hard check early.......five year old runs well off of short rest and gets it today

1  Goldini   sprint-route-sprint-scenario......good post-rider-trainer for a grass race.........ran 2nd in his latest to runner who won yesterday as our $20.00 top choice

2  Vantastic

7  Ox Bridge

3  Bud Knight


race 8    average clarity

5  Thrive   all three lifetime races are better than par and somewhat hidden......Prat stays put for a 4th straight race and with the potential for more horse under him today as this three year old races as a 1st time gelding this afternoon

4  Atomic Drop   solid sprint two back for this three year old from the DA's barn.......and this gelding should have plenty of endurance in the stretch exiting a nine furlong grass race

6  Minister Shane


race 9    average clarity

3  Dogtag   boxed and checked badly in last or wins a for one at 10F on the turf earning a solid Santucci Fig........stout work tab hints she is all set off to preform at a high level off of a 2 1/3 month break

2  Go Blue Nation   like our top choice one for one at today's 10F......very wide trip in last gave him no shot........back to 10F and 1st time Prat......filly is a big finisher

7  Rideforthecause

8  Kuora

5  Neige Blanche


race 10    below average clarity

1  Classier   won debut so proven he has shown he can run "fresh"..........and a big work tab supports the notion he is ready to roll......Baffert colt will likely try to wire the field

3  The Chosen Vron   gelding has done little wrong in 4 lifetime sprints.......1st at a route but for a trainer who is 23% with the move in Eric Kruljac......Rispoli stays put attempting to make it a perfect 2 for 2 on this Cal-bred

4  Defunded


race 11    average clarity

5  Miracle of Hope   race two back her MSW debut is better than par for today's MC50K level......blinkers on........decent chance that graduation day is at hand for this O'Neill 3rd time starter

8  Basilia   another taking the MSW to MC50K drop.........1st time Prat......away since September but a.m. work says she is ready.......Miller three year old only went for $22K at sale so the drop is of little concern

9  Sweet and Cheeky

10  Mongolian Panther

11  New Drama
