Santa Anita for Friday 5 October 2012



Remember that we race on Monday.  Best of luck today!


race 1    below average clarity

2  Desperate Measures    good forward move two back......decent 4F race in last......back quick but no big deal off of only a 4F run

3  Memo To Kathy   decent history fresh.....decent history with Garcia up........should be able to sit in a ground saving position close to the front

9  Roulette It Roll    decent race at Fpx and a bullet drill at SA since....feeling good

10  Moon Stone Madness   exits a fairly fast 4 furlong affair at Fpx.......likely to move forward 2nd out after a layoff especially off of a 4F race


race 2    average clarity

2  Secret Memo   both lifetime sprints are solid versus others in here.......way too fast a pace in last 1st time long......1st time conventional dirt seems to be the ? mark

4  Miss Sweet Afleet   raced on a dull nside in MSW debut last........takes the ever significant drop out of MSW racing to mdn claiming.....trainer has been cold so far....due to awaken

3  Glo's Spirit   solid forward move in 2nd lifetime start........cut back of 1/2 furlong looks like a good thing

10  Majestic Stinger   very solid mc debut at 37 to 1.........fits solidly here with a logical forward move and a clever ride from the 10 post


race 3    average clarity

1  Caribaya Queen   sprint turf jock upgrade.....excellent early speed here and has handled the 1 post just fine in the recent past.....solid here if she fires her effort 2 back of 3 back

6  Graser   sharp forward move in latest and two reassuring works since.....seems ready for the challenge of the SA hill turf course

10  Moroco Moon   beat 17 horses to win at the tough York meet in GB......went off 28 to 1 in her 1st ever grass race........nice work series in preparation for her U S of A debut

3  Sean S   tossed a clunker in last......but.......high % trainer and decent recent works......rebound seems likely

NOTE:   number 11  Jet Blue Girl has a shot if she draws into the field from the AE's


race 4    way below average clarity

NOTE: Gave out 8 horses and they sure seem awfully close in ability. Toughest race to decipher in quite some time

2  Idontrollonshabbos

1  What's For Dinner

8  Put It There

6  Run'n On Residuals

9  Bwana Be Gone

11  Beau Royale

10  Tribal Dreams

4  Mr. Why Why


race 5    slightly above average clarity

2  Eileen's Dreams   training exceptionally well and looks very loose here in her 1st ever route race.......a dangerous combination for a Sadler grass horse

6  Dime Piece   on the right end of the learning curve and now tries the sod for the 1st time with a good pedigree for it and a good grass jock aboard

3  Level Headed   decent first ever on the grass in latest......and now we get a solid jock upgrade.......has a shot to graduate today

5  Readyforhercloseup   decent turf sprint in debut last Nov........needed route race over the AW off of a long hiatus from racing.....back to the lawn fit and ready for a turf route


race 6    average clarity

8  Awe' Some Kitten   powerful move forward in last.....repeat of the effort 1st time on the "dirt" today would make her to one to overcome

9  Black Oak   2 decent out of town conventional dirt races in 2 lifetime starts..........laid up 8 weeks but the work tab says ready

5  Snackable   Miller charge ran well versus the boys in last.....back versus her own sex today......Miller does train the top pick but gets a positive rider change here

7  Jesse's Giacomo   nice mc debut win........small move forward puts this baby in the hunt.........rider/trainer do have something to prove as neither of them is off to a good start at the new meeting


race 7    slightly above average clarity

3  In The Stars   good effort 1st in the USA and 1st run after a long 9 months from the racetrack.........solid work regiment since......seems ready to show her BRZ form which would be very tough to overcome here

9  Changethechannel   showed she can handle grass in MSW debut.....big move forward in latest 1st at a route albeit on the AW.........back to the grass.......owns tactical speed and has a good speed grass jock aboard so the post might not matter so much

4  Mary Fildes   so so effort in last..........but ran a significant brutal trip effort 2 races back losing by only 2 lengths despite the very bad trip-a-roo

8  Four Better   good 1st in the U S of A in last........last race can fit with a good trip.....might need a little more if she receives just an average trip


race 8    average clarity

NOTE:   Extra horse given as there will be at least 1 scratch

12  Taking Form   drops from top to bottom maiden level.........adjusted from trouble fig/effort  (plenty of trouble) fits well here......of course she will need a good trip from a tough post

11  Blessed To Excess   capable of significant early pace.....will try to clear all or many and control things start to finish

2  Courageousandbold   debut race fits well.........need a rebound to work series hints that we will see it

14  Englsih Puddin  

13  Racy Rosa

6  Medio Ciego

1  Crystal Coast
