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 sometimes........works 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 G2......one 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

Santa Anita for Saturday 12 June 2021

OK 9 race card today and an 11 race card on Sunday for some unknown reason.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

5  My Summer Dream   blinkers on and just what you want to see as improved a.m. work......race has a lack speed and this route horse might have enough to be in the vanguard early......and if he is his endurance should be strong coming off of 4 lifetime routes to start his career........should go off a price

3  Prince Magician   good races turf to dirt back in relatively short rest......but this time Palma tries turf to turf back in relatively short rest......interesting maneuver might produce his best lifetime turf race.....if so he fits well here

6  Mahaamel

2  Uncle Jeff

 

race 2    above average clarity

4  Big Sweep   3 for 3 lifetime in dirt sprints and all three of the efforts/figs are powerful races......away since late August 2020 but Glatt usually has quality layoff runners ready to roll fresh off of the bench.......regular rider Prat stays put

2  Private Mission   very impressive MSW winning debut for this Baffert filly at SA last Oct......laid up after her 2nd start which wasn't too shabby either.......a.m. work screams meant and ready once again.......dangerous three year old

1  Bella Vista

 

race 3    below average clarity

4  Invictataus   need to lead type has a decent chance of getting it for the 1st time in a sprint race as this race definitely lacks the commodity.......this gelding has won 2 of 5 and a 2nd when he has gotten the early lead in route races

3  Sea of Liberty   race profile plays against this Sadler five year old but it might not matter as his efforts/figs fit fine at the given level and for most in this field they do not

1  Indy Jones

5  Erotic

 

race 4    average clarity

4  Drizella   nice MSW two year old debut running 2nd (albeit 2nd by 10L) to a "monster"........5 solid drills since the race.......owns some solid early speed........hard not to like this two year old filly

1  It's Simple   very impressive series of works for this O'Neill 1st time starter and Doug seems overdue to have a nice baby........dangerous 2nd selection

3  Sally Sanford

6  Infinite Love

2  Miss Shady

 

race 5    below average clarity

3  Mucho Del Oro   Hess three year old seems like the controlling speed in the race if he handles the two turns of turf.......right guy for the job aboard in Maldonado who has won two straight sprints on this gelding

1  Seeking Refuge   good history for this gelding when Umberto Rispoli has been in the saddle.......and the Manuel Ortiz five year old has the potential for improvement today racing as a 1st time gelding

6  Liar Liar

 

race 6    average clarity

2  Civil Suite   when last seen in May of 2020 this mare ran one of the fastest F&M MC20k's you will ever see........it was her 1st on the dirt and she did with speed on an inside that was slightly dull.........nice work regiment hints Dan Blacker has her fit and ready......all that and we get quite the rider upgrade

1  Li'l Grazen   plenty of speed signed up in this alw affair can play into the hands of this O'Neill seven year old mare who is capable of winning on or off of the pace here.......most likely she will be off the pace today with a good finishing rider in Rispoli up

3  Alice Marble

4  Another Eddie

8  Pray for My Owner

 

race 7    average clarity

3  Nu Pi Lambda   four year old filly owns some speed in a race that lacks it......good post and turf rider in Hernandez to take advantage of the speed favoring race profile.......hard not to like

6  California Kook   away since December so this might be a tune-up.......but if it isn't she is a superior turf runner vs today's competition but she is a turf route horse who lacks speed so she will really have to fly late.......right guy for the job in Prat aboard

4  New Heat

1  Equilove

 

race 8    average clarity

3  Fashionably Fast   very consistent Cal-bred tailed off some in March and April so Pederson smartly has given him more time off than he was getting......work tab suggests the additional time off has him at a peak again.......it is his race to lose if that is the case

5  Brickyard Ride   two straight dull races in a row but like our top choice his recent works hint he will mount a rebound..if he does he has a good shot to wire the field

4  Jamming Eddie

 

race 9    average clarity

2  Colosi   Tyler Baze should sit mid pack saving ground at least thru turn which should set him up well to make his move on the 2nd turn........seven year old gelding is (5 3 1 0) at The Great Race Place and this might be his last opportunity to race at SA until Fall.......so Glatt might pull out all stops to get a good race out of him today

1  Dr. Troutman   need to lead type has the right post to get the lead in this field with multiple speed foes and if he gets it his endurance should be strong with the cut back in distance

4  Platinum Equity

3  Contagion

7  Itsthattime

Santa Anita for Friday 11 June 2021

Not an easy race card to decipher. Only five race cards left at Santa Anita for the winter/spring meeting.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    below average clarity

6  Runningoutoflove   two year old Cal-bred colt from the Koriner barn has hit the track every 7 days dating back to at least March and his last 3 preparatory drills on the SA surface are awfully nice........all wound up and ready to unwind if he handles the sod.........pedigree for it a decent

1  Flash of Genius   baby was just bought in March and trainer Peter Miller like our top choice has put works into him that hint he is also meant and ready to roll at 1st asking........two year old colt owns an adequate pedigree for the sod

7  Bet On Mookie

5  Mackinnon

8  Olympic Legend

 

race 2    below average clarity

2  Silver Moon Road   two solid MSW AW races at GG to begin his career.......vet scratch on 21 May but this gelding has put in two strong drills since hinting he is doing OK.......and supporting the notion he has recovered from a set back is that he was a vet scratch in a MC50,000 and yet races for MC62,500 today

4  Honor Among Men   seems like the speed of the speed and despite going for $435K at sale in 2018 the drop into MC75K makes sense as he has only raced twice.....once on 31 Aug 19 and the other time 3 weeks ago on 22 May.........and look who wants the mount - Prat

6  Cant Stop This Man

 

race 3    average clarity

2  Vella   not the best of trips versus better earning a number that is 2L better than par (adjusted for the 4L of trip) for today's softer level........Eswan Flores seldom wins on the turf but has a shot to win here if he gives a better ride this afternoon

7  Maggie's Magic   1st on the grass but mom has tossed a couple of turf winners and this filly runs well on the AW at GG......combine the 2 "turf positives" and you have an individual that has a good chance of handling the sod......and if he does he should be tough from start to finish

3  Majestic Gig

1  Navy Queen

 

race 4    average clarity

1  Sir Flatter   two solid stats for Miller - dropping down multiple classes and 3rd out following a layoff........both are the case here........look for Cedillo to send this gelding early sitting 1st or 2nd down the back-stretch.......should be tough

7  Gerlach's  look for this fellow to go after the front end........if he gets it he might have a little extra endurance to finish up well with the cut back in distance

3  Very Irish

5  Mongol Altai

 

race 5    average clarity

3  Truth Seeker   trainer has won with 7 of his last 18 2nd out following a claiming which is the case today........and the effort 1st out after the claim is better than par (albeit on the dirt) for today's 25K claiming level........his ability on the grass is better than his overall (5 0 1 0) record on it indicates

5  Snazzy Dresser   only two speed horses in the field and he is one of them......he gets the "advantage" over the 2 horse as he appears to have more of a chance to stalk and succeed......and more of a chance to grab the lead

6  Storm the Bastile

 

race 6    average clarity

2  Big Al's Princess   price shot is well hidden to many as this three year old filly was wide on a day the rail was golden........he received a Santucci fig that is 2 lengths better than par for the given level of racing.......sure would like to get the 10 to 1 ML

8  Nobu   filly takes quite the drop from MSW racing down the MC30K.......and over the years Callaghan does well with these "take him if you want" types

7  Kind But She Lies

6  Consider Me Gone

4  Big Bell

 

race 7    below average clarity

3  Swiss Swoo  D'Amato has been dynamite with the horses he picks up in Europe.......this one has run twice on the AW (both solid efforts) but there a good shot he has trained on the turf overseas......Phil has been incredible with his imports so it hard not to put them as the top pick-a-rue

2  Wyfire   three year old returns to the race wars as a 1st time gelding and 1st time on Lasix......wide trip in a $100K turf sprint Stakes at SA when last raced on 26 Sept. 20 or he would have won......big shot if he is ready fresh off of the bench

1  Gator Shining

 

race 8    average clarity

1  Head for Business   MSW to MC50K drop for this Hess four year old today who moved forward in his 2nd lifetime start quite a bit.......the effort is disguised in it's strength by racing somewhat wide up on a hot pace......decent chance to get loose today......hard not to like

9  Active Account   Dean Pederson is very dangerous with MC 1ster's when they train well which this four year old is doing........his last two preparatory drills are impressive.......seems like a must use

8  Revisionist

5  Me Mucho

7  The Roan Ranger  SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE

Santa Anita for Sunday 6 June 2021

Mandatory payoff in the 20 cent pick 6 today with the estimated pool at $3,000,000!

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

1  One Flew South   very consistent turf sprinter..........Gus Headley has done a nice job with this fellow since he claimed him in Jan........five year old runs well off of short rest and 23 days since his last qualifies for that

3  I Will Not   outside of the Dmr dirt this O'Neill colt has been a fairly consistent runner turf or dirt.......turf today and a ground saving stalking trip seems likely from Guttierrez who is up for the 10th time in a row

6  Goliard

2  Evening Sun

 

race 2    average clarity

1  Gotta Be Lucky   good spot for blinkers on as this mare seems to have the most early speed in the field and with the addition of blinkers she might show even more.......if she does she should be loose and difficult to wheel in

3  You Wanna Ear Rip   bug boy will likely get a decent stalk position behind our top choice......like that he has ridden this mare inside in both of his mounts on her.......inside speed has been the to place to be in one mile dirt races at SA for almost all of 2021

4  Mongolian Window

 

race 3    average clarity

1  For the Good Times   nice forward move in her 2nd lifetime race to graduate despite a tough trip.........and the way she finished despite 6 to 7 lengths of trip trouble one would surmise she would handle another furlong of turf with a cleaner trip.......and her pedigree screams the longer the better

4  St Helena   2 of her last 3 turf one mile races fit fine in this spot if this Cal-bred filly can handle another furlong to travel.......doubt she is suited to 9F as well as our top choice but she might get a pace scenario stalking the three horse who might set a slow set of fractions but acts like she won't care for 9F......thus.......this filly might inherit the lead come stretch time

5  Big Mama Sue

 

race 4    average clarity

2  Bossy Soul   positive rider switch and this filly gets to race turf to dirt......and she takes that ever dangerous somewhat magical MSW to MC drop.......Glatt is 28% win with the move........seems like the one to overcome

5  Supersonic Flyer   looks loose here and with a good speed apprentice rider up in Jessica Pyfer.......that and the cut back of 1/2 furlong sure appears to be a plus

 

race 5    average clarity

4  Mongolian Mission   good spot for turf route speed as this race lacks it and this filly has some.........and gets Maldonado up for a 4th straight time.......back where started her career 3 races back as in a MC50K...........trainer is still looking for his 1st win and might get it here

1  Cinnte Winnte   all three lifetime races were at today's one mile turf distance and fit fine here........like our top choice she takes the ever dangerous MSW to MC50K drop......she should be closing fast and with the right guy for the job in Umberto Rispoli

2  I Give Up

8  Golden Journey

3  Bellize

 

race 6    below average clarity

4  Ultimate Hy   filly is improving and she has a nice way of going and finishing on the grass.........if she can run as well on the main track she will be tough with Rispoli remaining up

1  Smoothlikebuttah   one win and one 2nd racing at today's one mile dirt distance and both races were run at Santa Anita........and the win was breaking from the one post.........hard not to like

2  Harper's Gallop

 

race 7    average clarity

2  Touchdown Brown   three year old colt returns with a series of works that suggest his new trainer Brian Kornier has a good handle on his new acquisition........and this colt is proven fresh as he won his MSW debut by 4 1/2L..........so 1st on the grass is the ? mark........he owns a pedigree that should handle it

1  Whatmakessammyrun   (3 2 0 1) in turf sprints and his lone turf sprint on Lasix was his last race and was a dandy as in his career best........3 reassuring drills since the 2 May race........hard not to like this Glatt three year old colt

3  Missy P.

 

race 8    average clarity

2  First Prez   believe the impetus for O'Neill  to put this gelding in a dirt sprint were the significant fractions this gelding dueled in in his last race .......and blinkers go on to increase his speed some more......believe jock McCarthy will try and wire the field but this gelding has won without the lead albeit on the grass

3  Holden the Lute   nice move forward to run a distance 2nd as the winner ran his eyeballs out......reassuring work since......nobody is running an 108:4 here.......Knapp's runner should be tough

4  Box of Chocolates

7  Albizu

 

race  9   average clarity

6  Cassie Belle   Sean McCarthy has had a wonderful 2021 albeit with limited starters and he might add to his 26% win total here with this smooth running route turf stalker.......and the right guy is up as J J Hernandez is (4 2 2 0) on this five year old mare

2  Fantail   useful layoff run turf sprint for this Baltas filly in her 1st race in the USA since coming over from GB......the 28 May work since the race hints this filly is fit now.......so does the fact Prat does not jump ship

3  Freedom Flyer  

4  Ivy League

7  Del Mar Drama

Santa Anita for Saturday 5 June 2021

P6 now carryover now stands at $380K. Hoping Umberto Rispoli has a great day as he is our top selection in 5 races!

Best of luck as always!

 

race 11 at Belmont the Belmont Stakes

7  Rock Your World  here is my comment prior to the Kentucky Derby for this colt, "over the past decade or so horses that win the Santa Anita Derby who set and overcome strong fractions have been very formidable in the Kentucky Derby.........this Sadler colt did just that and since the race he has trained as if the very big effort did not take its toll........that and in his other 2 lifetime starts which were on the grass he won from off of the pace so he does not necessarily need the lead to win this historic race"......totally toss out the Derby as he had a trip from you know where starting right out of the gate........stout drills since.......should be loose on the lead

2  Essential Quality   difficult to argue about anything this colt has accomplished to date........works are fine......pedigree is decent to get the 12F.........Saez knows his mount inside and out.......hard not to like

4  Hot Rod Charlie  impressive in his last three "fast track" dirt routes.......trainer knows what it takes to win Triple Crown races.....distance might suite Doug O'Neill's colt as his pedigree is decent for the 12F marathon distance and his running lines also hint he might get a 1/4 mile further than the Ky Derby distance

6  Known Agenda   has a shot at the winners circle but Irad Ortiz is injured and not riding and that hurts this colt's chances some

3  Rombauer  has a shot at the winners circle but Flavien Prat elected to ride Hot Rod Charlie which seems like a negative

 

SANTA ANITA races

race 1    above average clarity

3  I Got No Munny   quite the break thru in his latest 1st time on Lasix......reassuring work since the 9 May race........repeat of that effort (no bounce hopefully) will win this race.......trainer Glatt has had very nice meeting at Santa Anita

2  Albizu   significant improvement 1st time with Mulhall as the trainer.......the winning race back on 17 April fits.........solid tightly spaced interval training since.......same or better seems likely today

5  Sea to Success

 

race 2    above average clarity

2  Wishtheyallcouldbe   distance turf fitness should help this filly fly late and with a strong closing turf jock in Umberto Rispoli........Puype's filly just put in her best looking work (30 May 100:3H) dating back to Feb.........rather sure this three year old will run a strong race

1  Feeling Grazeful   tough trip in her MSW debut but the Santucci fig is still nothing to write home about but neither is this dismal looking field considering the level

3  Patriot Missile

 

race 3    average clarity

3  Reedley   just claimed by Mullins and I like that Maldonado rides thru the claim as he owns a good history riding this five year old horse who is night and day better when he is on the lead.......good gate horse and Edwin up......hard not to like

1  Kidmon   does his best racing at The Great Race Place and he had a nice solid prep 2 weeks ago at LA where he didn't have the best of trips yet still ran 2nd......should be closing late with bug boy Ortega up and the young man is starting to ride better

6  Malakai Moxie

 

race 4    below average clarity

2  Big Andy   filly is (4 2 2 0) when not wearing blinkers like today.......and a perfect 1 for 1 on Lasix without blinkers.......add to those two stats and you have another that is rather startling as in Rispoli/Heap have when 3 straight as a team

4  Mucha Woman   sprint-route-sprint and turf to dirt and a significant rider upgrade and to one in Hernandez who won 3 yesterday........that and the only time that O'Neill won with this filly came the lone time they ran for a tag

5  Simmer Down

 

race 5    average clarity

2  McWerter   Doug O'Neill's gelding is (3 2 1 0) when not wearing blinkers.......away since 2 April but continues to train like a happy healthy individual.......as usual he should be in the mix from the get go and tough thru out with Rispoli remaining up

1  Nichiren   impressive MC40K debut last Sept. at GP in a race taken off of the grass........shows up in the Glatt barn and with some good works showing hinting he is ready to roll once again "fresh"......solid sprint turf pedigree.......dangerous sort

8  Armour Plate

5  Capo Mafioso

 

race 6    average clarity

4  Desmond Doss   best in dirt races (3 1 2 0) and yet has run 9 times on the turf (9 2 0 1)........Cedillo stays put for a 6th straight mount on this Miyadi five year old.........lifetime best Santucci figs were both run at SA in his only two career dirt routes

5  Tizhotndusty   latest race fits and so does Pyfer where she is (3 1 1 1) on this four year old and the 1st and 2nd were both route races........Kruljac has had a good year with limited starters and might get his 8th win here

2  Major Cabbie

 

race 7    average clarity

3  Constantia   very impressive stretch runs when placed in turf sprints and retains Rispoli who is a perfect 3 for 3 riding this Sadler filly in turf sprints.......and basically when Sadler legs up Rispoli his stock has been very live over the last 2 1/2 months

7  Venetian Harbor   best with the lead and she appears very dangerous on the front end here if she is able to clear from post 7.......stellar work regiment for this laid up Baltas runner hints she will show plenty of speed in her return to the race wars

8  Superstition

1  Nasty

2  Never for Money

 

race 8    average clarity

2  Audace   believe that his latest run off of an year layoff was no more than tune-up to come back quick fit and ready as the only time this Puype four year old raced of off short rest he won........also it seems like a positive that this fellow did not race in a protected race in his layoff run but does today

3  Signofthecross   hard to argue with 3 wins and 2 seconds in 5 lifetime fast track routes......that and Trevor McCarthy should get on or near the lead early position and at a distance at SA that favors those that do

1  Betito

4  Lightning Fast

 

race 9    average clarity

7  Lansdowne   the D'A has been terrific with his European shippers that he takes over as in 5 wins and two 2nd's with his last 7........that and this Irish shipper when last seem ran a close 5th (2 3/4L for the win) in a very key race.......1st on the grass is a ? mark but a small won considering mom has tossed 2 turf winners from 3 starters

3  Finally Here   great name for a five year old making his career debut.......plenty of bills and likely some heartache along the way all will be forgotten if this turf bred five year gelding runs to his works

6  Magic Man

4  Grandconcourse Guy

8  Sirocco
