Difficult Easter race card. 

Best of luck as always!


race 1  average clarity

8  Queen of Pompeii   Carla Gaines filly catches a soft looking field.....training great off of a prolonged hiatus from the game.....off pace sprint turf filly can finish so the 6 1/2 furlongs of turf should be right up her alley

3  She's a Joker   good post for a 1st time starter who might own some early speed.......trainer Alvarado is a stout 4 for his last 8 with 1ster's and also 2 for his last 4 with 1st timer's starting on the grass.......dangerous potential

1  Baker Kait

10  Beautiful Temple

7  Applaud the Bench


race 2  average clarity

4  There Goes Harvard   not easy to put bug boy Herrera as top choice as he has lost his mojo the last 3 weeks (did get a win yesterday).....that shows how much I like this colt in this spot......that and with only 4 foes to negotiate how bad of a trip can this McCarthy colt get.......we shall find out

2  Divine Armor   last two races fit fine for this deep closer and the 1 1/16 distance should be a plus for him and won't be for others in here

3  Parnelli


race 3 average clarity

3  Worse Read Sanchez   plenty of speed signed up in this affair should aid this deep closer's chances who has run three strong firm turf races at SA......and he is one for one at today's one mile turf distance

6  Bally's Charm   2nd time Lasix and cutting back in distance is right up the trainer's alley and Mullins legs up Pyfer for a 5th straight race.......and despite her low win % of the turf the jock has looked good riding this three year old

4  Rocky Gibraltar

8  Jack Sixpack

1  Big Splash


race 4  average clarity

6  Piroli   improving with each and every start and he retains Hernandez for a 4th straight start....if he races either one of his last two races (both routes) he will be difficult to overcome

5  Got Thunder   blinkers on is a decent stat for John Salder and turf to dirt is one of the trainer's best stats as in 30% win with his last 104......only mount of the day for Victor Espinoza and on a holiday to boot - that seems significant

2  Kerouac

4  Balladeer


race 5  average clarity

6  Squillions   moved forward in her 2nd lifetime start and now for her 3rd start she takes the ever dangerous somewhat magical MSW to MC move.....and her a.m. work preparing for today is vastly improved

3  Unfaithful Ways   just fired her lifetime best and drops one MC level......and Baltas is usually very dangerous 2nd out following a claim......and last but not least the switch to Joe Bravo seems significant as he & Baltas are 6 for their last 12 win

8  Spring Spinning

7  The Ginger Queen

1  Team Concept


race 6  average clarity

4  Zabava   time to cut loses or "claim me please" for this Knapp runner who drops precipitously to stop the red ink.........Knapp is 3 for his last 12 with 7 others hitting the board with individuals making multi-level drops

9  Take a Leap   (12 5 4 1) lifetime on conventional dirt and (4 2 2 0) at SA......so it is fairly easy to ignore a difficult post at one mile on the dirt.....that and he races 1st out following the Wong claim which is usually a dangerous proposition for the opposition

7  Bossy Soul

2  Best of Show

3  Hot On the Trail


race 7  average clarity

6  Ole Silver   race lacks speed and this D'Amato mare has the most.......this might be a gimme to race turf to dirt but her a.m. work hints it is not.......wire to wire attempt today

7  Shore Break   very consistent sort in turf routes (5 2 1 1 1).......Drysdale filly has a shot to stalk the lead and if she does it might be a slow pace enhancing her chances of taking down this race

5  New Heat

2  Trumps Dream

3  Carpe Vinum


race 8  below average clarity

9  Big Flame   wide trip in his latest 1st out following the Miyadi claim in what might have been a gimme of sorts.......races turf to dirt today and he acts like his 1st ever at 7F will be a plus

4  Raging Waters   solid layoff race in latest and when you examine his works he did not seem all that cranked up.......he should be today......bug boy is 32% win in sprint races with his last 34

2  Gerlach's

1  Quick Buick

3  Suzie Qzz Brother


race 9  average clarity

4  Busker Allie   filly should fly late in this 6 1/2F turf race coming off of 4 straight route races......hope Pyfer has had a nice day as this is the third time we have had her as one of our top two picks.......come on Jessica

10  Current Mood   not the best of trips in her MSW debut and since the race she put in two endurance building works......Van Dyke is good with turf sprinters coming from off the pace and with the endurance building works this Drysdale filly should have something left when push comes to shove in late stages of this race

2  Tapit Rocks

3  Summer Pudding

6  It's Greek to Me

9  Shez Our Arch
