Santa Anita for Friday 12 March 2010


Handicappers Corner

Feel good about these 4 exacta boxes in the 5th race  1, 3    1, 5    1, 8    1, 9   

If the seemingly slow pace develops like I believe it will in the 7th race I like this straight trifecta bet   4-3-2

race  1   slightly above average clarity

7  Kaylie's Joy   earned a strong wake up fig in last with a bad trip.....same effort and a smoother journey and she should win

6  Champagneandlilies   wide trip in maiden debut...good work since....barns having a very good meeting....should move forward

5 Allie Wolf   showed stronger pace in her latest and now adds blinkers......can get loose with a good speed rider and......may........go........all.........the........way

race 2    average clarity

2  Zilarator   little shot in last wide chasing a strong pace......Baff switches to his number one guy these days the vastly improved Martin Garcia...should be prominent thru-out

4  Drink At Last Call   logical drop to get to the circle of joy

7  Cranky Jack   strong series of tightly spaced drills and good sprint breeding makes this 1st timer dangerous

race 3    average clarity   

5  Paleo   consistently tries hard....only USA grass race he ran in turned out to be a very stout group with many firing big efforts in their next out

6  Fair Chase   some solid sprint efforts on the synthetic and well bred to fire on the grass.....barn has been hot 1st ever on the grass as well

4  Sky Chant   useful sprint in debut and now switches to the grass where she has breeding that strongly suggests that is where she has been pointed for

3  Roman Charity   proven on the SA hill grass course and that is 1/2 the battle

race 4    slightly above average clarity

7  Brayden Buddy    on the improve with every start including a wide with solid pace effort in his last.....should be prominent thru-out

3  Warring Heart   long layoff for this drop down from the top to the bottom in the maiden suggest he's healthy and sound enough to fire

2  Spinco Bob   showed life in debut and has an improved work since....should improve today

6  Whizer  barn has only 1 win in their last 100 starts with maiden claimers but they do get this gelding to put in a decent closing run about 50% of the time

race 5    average clarity

1  Wicked Mischief   all three races after his layoff are solid and the recent drills suggest we may see even better

8  Cape Town King   very very consistent shipper should be prominent from the get go

3  Scottish Diamond   2 1/2 months off....if he comes back the same he's the one to beat...not sure that he is though

5  Swiss Ski   subtle move forward in last and Bejarano sticks around...closing may get a lively pace to run at

race 6    average clarity

3  Squeeze Me Tight   nice return to race wars after the layoff in her last.....should move forward for the awakening Ellis barn

1  Higher Incentive   ran well versus better in her only grass efforts on the SA hill turf course

4  Life By R R   don't like using the over used word "bounce" (kind of like politicians and financial talking heads using "at the end of the day" too often) but if this horse "bounced" in his last and rebounds to his fab race 2 back....bombs away

5  Connie The Queen   dangerous looking invader  has  been laid up but is training well    

race 7    above average clarity

4  Spurrier   race lacks pace and this well worked fellow should get the perfect chase / ponce position

3  Aggie Engineer  very ratable horse looks loose here and has a good chance to take it wire to wire

race 8    average clarity

9  One Man's Delight   5 year old gelding has caught some very solid fields and gets to face five 3 year olds in here

12  Turbulence  big synthetic runs at GG and I sure like his grass breeding

8  Romance Is Family

3  Absolutlypositivly

6  My Boy Walsh
