Santa Anita for Sunday 1 April 2012


Five correct paid $46K in the pick six yesterday. I thought it was difficult but not to such a degree. Once again it looks tough. Very difficult card to decipher.


TEPID PICK 6 HELP:  Somewhat risky single might be considered in the 4th with our top pick. 8th race using all 3 picks looks solid. And in the 9th I would consider using our top 2 picks. Two very well meant 1st time starters. The rest of the pick 6 sequence seems awfully difficult.


race 1    average clarity

5  Outta Splash   very poor trip in last in what looks like a sprint tune-up to come back in short rest and be fit and ready for 1st ever at a route

4  Stonewall Jackson    bombed 2 straight races with the addition of blinkers.....blinkers off today

2  Broken Glass   might get loose again but will need better staying power as he gave away a maiden breaking win in late stretch despite getting away with very soft fractions


race 2    average clarity

1  Brown Is Beige   ultra consistent sort especially with 5 or 6 weeks between races......just claimed by the red hot Mullins....especially red hot with grass horses

6  Hakuchi   last was decent and her near bullet drill since hints of more this afternoon.....barn has been cold....seems due to get act together and wake up

3  Ms. G. I. Jane   laid up runner is up for a tag so I doubt this is a gimme as I think Mathis would have started him in a protected race if it was....sure fits if ready for 25K


race 3    average clarity

5  Tummel   broke bad and ran wide as heavy favorite in last his 1st ever at a since have been greatly improved......stepping up from mdn50K to mdn75K seems like a very good ever was 6F on the SA dirt

3  Beau Royale   solid work tab for this 1st timer and mom has tossed 3 winners from 3 runners

6  Cast A Doubt    last 2 races for this gelding are par for today's level.......a little more might be needed but maybe not

2  Put It There   looks to rebound to his effort 3 back the last time he was up for a mdn75K tag and the last time Bejarano rode


race 4    average clarity

8  Boat Trip   solid move forward to break maiden 1st on the turf off a 2 month layoff.....back in short rest......might feel really goooood

6  Frenemy   just claimed by Sadler who pops at a 30% clip 1st out after a claim.......colt ran just fine in his only grass race tiring late after not the best of the way Gomez is riding especially on the grass

5  Plenny Of Henny   ultra consistent sort on the main track......1st on the turf but bred just fine to handle it....claimed by Becerra and he puts E Flores up who will carry 7 big lbs less than his winning effort in his last

1  Koast   1st time turf figure in last fits well but he got away with a slow quarter on a loose lead.....will need to prove self today versus other speed....all in all he seems beatable but still dangerous


race 5    slightly below average clarity

4  Mona Storm   0 for 10 on the AW.....3 for 5 on the win now because Hollywood is coming soon

1  Trapper's Bounty   most of horse's career fits solid versus these and the GG invader is training sharply

7  Line One   sure seems like a good sign that Puype seems fit to step this mare up for the 2nd straight time

6  Lil Miss Macky   two straight dull races in a row.....needs a rebound to her effort 3 back


race 6    slightly below average clarity

3  Bodie Girl   big mile grass race sprint to route last summer at Dmr.....two turf sprints in a row off of the layoff and now a mile grass race....seems set up for today to some degree

7  Unusual Hottie   good chance to stalk the lead once again the ticket to a win in her last

1  Our Heat   strong late runner finally draws an inside post after 3 straight outside recent 4F work....might be poised very a top effort

8  Speedway Monkey   1 for 1 on the sod and now gets Gomez who I believe makes the 113lb weight assignment....3 year old filly can be prominent from the get go


race 7    below average clarity

7  Miss Long Gone   most of career fit solidly until he tossed a clunker in solidly if his health is still intact....toss a coin

4  Uzziah   all 3 lifetime conventional dirt races fit well versus this weak looking group....but he sure tends to hang in the stretch

3  Ello Guv   only two times back in short rest....albeit on the in this spot........that is today's scenario

9  Moonlight Beach   horse hoping for yesterday's track where wide runners had a field day.....because this horse runs wide all the time........little chance if the track comes up "even"


race 8    slightly above average clarity

5  Calimonco   best set of works for a Sadler grass runner in quite some has been running over his head....back where he strongly fits

6  Haimish Hy   powerful work tab for this laid up runner.....last win came fresh off the bench like today

2  Dewey's Special    here's your wire to wire attempt who gets a positive rider switch to Bejarano


race 9    above average clarity

8  Pretty Darn Quick   horse's name says it all about the a.m. work for this Headley 1st timer

10  Night Wind   another 1ster training as if all systems are go for his debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing

2  Goodbye Charlie   fits if brings 'A game" and the sizzling drills at Tup hint that he might.....good speed rider up for a horse capable of setting some fast splits...only 5 1/2 furlongs to last

11  Enduring Promise   improving sort is 1st time Hollendorfer who wins about 1/3rd of the time when he takes over the training duties of a horse....but he hasn't exactly been having a good SA meet...still....dangerous

6  My Slew   claimed in last...will need to improve plenty 1st time Asmussen.....most likely just a piece of the pie here

3  Kilat   1st timer with fairly decent drills but nothing like our top two picks
