Santa Anita for Thursday 24 Feb 2011

[private]

SORRY FOR THE MISSING COMMENTS BUT TECH TROUBLES  

race 1    slightly below average clarity

4  Rainbow Luck   par like effort 1st ever on the Santa Anita hill turf course in last.......decent shot to get a chase or mid pack ground saving trip in this race lacking speed

1  Blue Maiden   all 3 U S of A turf races are better then par and I believe is the best animal in this group but this closer will have to overcome a lack of pace up front

7  Lunar Mist   Pedroza knows a lack of speed when he sees it and I believe he will hustle this horse to a position near the front and be in a good position crossing the dirt

2  Prytania   nice closer scratched out of a tougher race Monday for this race....will need more pace than anticipated to put in her best closing run

 

race 2    average clarity

3  Costanta   lone lifetime dirt came turf to dirt....so consider last a 56 to 1 gimme down the hill....well meant today and that is half the battle

2  Judge Joan   1 1/4 years off but lone conventional dirt race run at Fpx is quite good and if this laid up filly fires at least 75% of that effort she will tough here

5  All The Love   decent return to the race wars in last and training as if we may see more....Headley barn is ice cold and could use a winner

 

race 3   average clarity

3  Parable   major awakening with the blinkers off in last....rather sure the challange of Feb. 1 1/8 mile for 3 year old is a plus for this gelding...all 4 lifetime races are routes and he is bred to handle the distance 

6  Unex Dali   lone USA grass race fits fine and this colt is bred to run all day long.....another cold trainer overdue to get his mojo working

8  Akkadian   impressive 1st start in a sprint for Canani who is seldom ready with a 1st timer.....he is much more dangerous with 2nd timers.....rather sure we see a strong move forward in 2nd lifetime start

2  World Renown   earned a par like fig in last with a wide run on the main track.....expensive animal is bred to handle the turf and the distance....Sadler has been red hot the last few weeks

 

race 4    average clarity

1  Fine And Rare   strong wide run chasing a decent pace in last this colt's 2nd lifetime race....repeat of that effort with a better journey would be difficult to beat

2  Magic Spirit   very bad trip in mc debut run 3 weeks ago and still only lost by a closing 3 lengths......36 to 1 in that races suggests Walsh didn't have this colt all that ready and more logically can be epected today

6  Brereton Park   best speed in this group....wire to wire shot

8  Answer To Abby   exits a fast heat and was a beaten a nose for 2nd with a gap of 2 3/4 lengths to 4th
