Santa Anita for Thursday 1 April 2010


Handicappers Corner

Great Looking Santa Anita Derby Day card this Saturday


Sure like today's recommended pick 3 part-wheel 

6th Race     3,4,5,8 with 1,2,4,6 with 1,6,8


race 1   slightly below average clarity

7 Girlwiththegoldhoof   flashed some decent pace in her maiden debut...good works since...can be in prominent position from the get go

8  Akeela   have to like the fact that Chew claimed this filly right back after losing her...all 3 lifetime starts are competitive for this level

5  Waterside Rose   1ster works are getting sharper...a possible sign she is starting to become a competitive, ready racehorse

3  Notwithstanding   notwithstanding we have a trainer that hasn't won in 2 years...this filly ran very wide in a route and only got beat by 7...also believe she we like a turn back in distance 


race 2    average clarity

3  Suances De Espana   all 3 2010 races fit solidly here...barn has woken up a little

2   Pokomoke  believe Mullins believes as I do that this horse prefers sprinting...last fits fine

1,1A  ENTRY  both 1 and 1A have a chance from mid pack (1A) and far back positions (1)


race 3    average clarity

6  Prince Of Gotham   has shown life in all 3 lifetime AW's a hot new turf sire

9  Absolutlypositivly   sure like this one's last 3 sprints on the AW and on the turf...can range up from the outside near the lead

2  Padre John  1ster has good enough drills to be ready for debut....decent grass breeding...and has a trainer in Bell who wins more on the grass than the AW

5  Mr Tokyo   inexpensive purchase is running fairly well on the sod....can compete for the win with a little move forward.....Gomez sticks with the horse...gotta like that


race 4    average clarity   

1  Lamm   all three grass races run this year are strong for this level....Mitchell drops for an AW race....recent bullet drill suggests he should handle the surface change

6  Egypt   race 2 back his last run on the AW fits well at today's 20K level

5  Laser Point   in good form but does lose Gomez who has won 3 of the 4 races this horse has won.....but we do get M Garcia...still a decent shot to compete for the top prize


race 5    slightly below average clarity

1  Usually Super   last wasn't much but the race 2 back is a very nice bad trip figure...that's what we need..that's hope she lives up to her name

3  Sweet Patricia   1st time in the Sherlock barn and a strong recent work-out hints that she appreciates it

4  Loaded Gun   OK debut and has really had a prolonged much improved work series since....sure seems ready fresh

8  Real Housewife   bred to be a good are good enough to consider ready in maiden debut


race 6    average clarity

4  Skellytown   very solid figs on Top Turf today for this level.....logical drop...distance fits

3  Uffizi  85 % of his lifetime grass races fir well here....distance is fine too

5  Rumba Along   2nd out after the claim and that is where the Dollase barn is most dangerous...consistent animal

8  Jack's Wild   best work in some time hints at a rebond....barns had a very good meeting


race 7    average clarity

2  Warrens Summergold   sprinting tries long and he can be loose on the lead without many challengers...decent shot to wire

6  Self Made   nice win in MSW debut with a game great and Sadler is tough 1st time long of late

1  Green Card James   believe last was a grass tune-up to be legged up for today's route run...positive rider switch


race 8    slightly above average clarity

1  Tuscan Moon  last definitely looks like the gimme to be full throttle for today in the drop out of MSW to the maiden claiming ranks

8  Sky Chant   debut race n the AW is out of a fast heat...that race fits solidly here

6  Merrytagio  another dropping out of MSW....seems logical after 2 so so efforts...Gomez sticks with the horse

3  Don Veinte  flashed good speed in debut...can be prominent from the get go and can compete for the win in she moves forward in her 2nd lifetime race

2  Carat Foe C. C.   late runner is better than she looks on paper...doubt can win but can hit the board at a big price
