Santa Anita for Sunday 13 Feb 2011


Rebound time after yesterday's debacle. One always seems to get slapped when they brag a little too much.

All the races seem playable today.


race 1    average clarity

2  Subpoena The Dress   2 solid races at 6F on drills

3  Ashee   looking for a forward move 2nd out after the layoff

6  Red White And Brew   better off chasing and will have to here with the faint of heart 4 horse in the race


race 2    average clarity

1  Rumor    crushed foes in MSW....very smooth looking runner...the kind that has a good opportunity to show more in 2nd lifetime start...bred to handle the 1 mile distance just fine

5  Love Theway Youare   exits an extremely solid MSW affair that fits at this higher level...and may move forward 2nd after the layoff


race 3    average clarity

7  Red Dwarf   best set of drills (esp. for a Cal bred) for a 1ster from the Puype barn in some time

6  He's So Stylish   good grass leg me up tune-up in debut last...bullet 5/8th drill since....much more in 2nd out likely

1  Red Scare   bet hard in MSW debut in late Dec and only ran so so.....good work series since....Gaines will most likely get more from her youngster today

2  Jade River   Ellis 1st timer is training up to snuff and looks ready to roll in his debut into the world of thoroughbred racing


race 4  average clarity

2  Warren's Sally   exits a fast heat in latest...never trained better....positive rider switch

8  Officerwasispeedin   on the right end of the learning curve and has a good shot here if the learning process continues today

4  Whiskers And Rye   even run in last looked like a needed race....hint....Bejarano sticks around for 2nd out after the layoff

3  Silver Luna   2nd and 3rd lifetime starts are OK...what we want is her effort 3 back in her mc debut


race 5    average clarity

6  Camp Victory   last looks like the gimme in a non-claiming affair to drop and go 2nd out for his new conditioner

3  Sarvas Wild Again   very consistent in route races on the turf or the main track.....and sure seems to appreciate 6 to 8 weeks between starts and gets it

1  Stephen's Got Hope   both grass races run at today's 1 mile distance are solid....gets a nice post where he has started from for his last 2 wins


race 6    average clarity

2  Smart Spending   Gaines has this newcomer to her barn training up a storm....only run on a Fast track was impressive

4  Espirito Santo   broke his maiden in last with a decent final time fig but more importantly showed very strong pace for the level....also gets a positive rider switch

1  Pleasant Earth   a little short fig wise but closer should get significant pace up front and the race might fall in his lap

7  Jolly Ollie   1st time in the Hollendorfer barn and that is usually a good thing


race 7    average clarity

3  Andina   1 1/8 mile turf distance seemingly is a very good fit...ultra consistent sort

2  Farley Star   2 one mile grass races in her both of her U S of A starts aren't bad.....1 1 /8 mile distance looks like a much better fit 

4  Catsalot   good animal fresh off of the bench like today....trainer is starting to heat up

7  Calle Vista   good speed in this affair...and...a good history when sits on the lead or in a close chase position


race 8    slightly above average clarity

3  Always A Princess   powerful run in last getting caught a little wide with significant pace...will have to be caught

4  Blind Luck   pace scenario hurts this superstars chances but  she has overcome a lack of pace before


race 9    average clarity

5  Extra Fifty   bad trip in Msw debut run last August which was on the grass.....showed lots of life....very positive rider switch and the works say ready

9  Husband's Folly   earned a strong fig in 2nd lifetime start on the AW and it was run with 2 months off....2 1/2 months off this well...good turf pedigree

2  Wholelotacongrats   1st trainer is training like he is well meant and ready....very good breeding for the sod

10  Robbie's War   can be motoring late....needs a clever ride from a difficult post

7  Shamino    1st timer has strong drills for a guy like Shirreffs and mom is prolific at tossing out grass runners
