Sanat Anita for Sunday 12 February 2012



 OK card today. Be back with you Thursday for the start of 5 straight days of racing at beautiful SA.


race 1    average clarity

6  Alworth   mom has been a decent broodmare and the drills for this Hendricks 1st timer are solid and tightly spaced....awfully good for a mdn claiming state-bred 1ster

5  Rico Espada   another 1st starter who is working up to snuff....seems like a good spot for a 1ster in that those that have run haven't exactly been world beaters

2  Already There   poor trip in last hides a move forward in last.....and the cut back from a route to a sprint looks like a good thing for this Miller runner


race 2    above average clarity

3  Princess Arabella   checked 3 lengths early in her MSW debut and still won for fun......fabulous work tab since.....same or better today

4  Starship Flare   turf legged up coming off 3 straight mile turf races....sure liked the dirt at CRC.....very sharp work tab....seems ready for very best

1  Sage D'oro   solid move forward 1st time in the Mike Mitchell barn in last.....what's new?........1st on the dirt....will need another move in the right direction to handle our top 2 picks if they run like I think they will


race 3    average clarity

6  Warren's City Art   laid up but training well enough to handle a 5F affair....drops and gets ever both pace wise and final time wise was his lone race on "real" dirt

2  Alokee   only 2 races in 2 years so why not drop from MSW racing to the bottom....poor starts in both lifetime races which were grass races.....will most likely need a decent break today at this abbreviated sprint distance of 5F

7  Random Luck   back on conventional dirt might wake up.....he needs one

4  Bensanna   positive rider switch......cut back in distance helps this short winded type


 race 4    average clarity

6  Magical Eclipse   bad trip in turf sprint last hides a good 1st ever run on the sod and it was off a long layoff.....bred to handle a turf mile and should be fit enough to handle it

3  Geniality   good history back in short rest and comes back (off of an up the track effort in last) in only 9 days

8  Carousel   fits just fine at today's level but goes from one cold jock to another....what a difference a couple of months can make........Vergara and Berrios were the "hot new" faces on the S Cal scene......both are do to wake up

9  Woodman's Lass   deep closer will need more pace than anticipated and his very best to win this


race 5    average clarity

5  Queenie Marini   consistent dirt sprinter but has always run a little too high up in racing level......not today

6  Lisa Lulu   seems to be making a rebound of sorts....might feel real good getting to run off a turf race

8  All The Love   decent turf race in latest at twice the level 1st out after the claim.....drops back to level where snatched and gets a jock upgrade

9  Classy Attraction   caught 3 wide near a decent pace.....good effort....repeat of that race with a better trip and he fits fine


race 6    average clarity

7  Abella   useful MSW debut on the dirt......bred nicely to appreciate a run down the hill....trainer is solid with 2nd timers and very capable 1st on the lawn

5  Lindz Winz   good forward move in last both in pace in final time....trainer is decent cutting back from route to sprint on the turf

9  Sea John's Spirit   works seem good enough to possible be ready enough to compete for the winners circle in her lifetime debut

4  Warren's My Queen   subtle improvement in last.....and a subtle improvement in jocks at least as far as their turf riding abilities is concerned


race 7    below average clarity

5  Melissa Rose   2 for 2 on "fast" conventional dirt when Mitchel was the listed trainer

1  My Brite Caroline   nicely improved effort in latest....looked very straight and strong down the stretch....seems to respond well to 4 or 5 weeks off and gets it

2  Maya Angelina   finally Ellis sees the light and puts this horse on conventional dirt where he is 3 of 4 lifetime

4  Lil Miss Macky   dangerous improving Mitchell charge is a pretty nice 4the choice


race 8    average clarity

4  Vionnet   solid win 1st ever down the hill in last.....4 lbs off today and continues to train like a Stakes filly....we will see if she is one this afternoon

3  She Spirit Di Su   very solid 1st ever run in the good old U S of A in last......2nd out of the race came back to win yesterday as our top pick..... puts in some support for the race a strong effort

5  Indigo River   another winning 1st time USA.....and....ran much better in 2nd lifetime start in out after the layoff sure looks like a good thing

8  Dijarvo   very impressive races in GB and FR last seem a little light...But of course works aren't everything for every horse


race 9    average clarity

6  Pulpit Express   powerful maiden breaking win in last both pace and final time wise....1st long but that is usually a good thing for Mitchell coming off a good race....wire to wire shot

4  Skip Tony   nice awakening to break maiden 1st ever at a route......decent chance to get a good chase position here with 1st time Bejarano

12  Nome   had lots of trouble in both lifetime starts...believe last was work for today's 1st ever long....if so....lookout at a handsome price here

13  Arathorn   new trainer and he puts this colt on Lasix for the 1st time......that often can move a horse forward...fits if works

8  Go To The Pulpit   another who woke up 1st at a route to win....only needs a small move forward and a good trip to fit here

11 The Bien's Gift   won 2nd lifetime start....2nd out after the long layoff here....hmmmm
