Santa Anita for Monday 8 October 2012


Nice pick 6 carry-over today. Best "singles" I can see would be our top pick in races 7, 8, and 9.

Best of luck!


race 1    slightly below average clarity

8  Ya Wanna Hug   solid return to the race wars in latest and it is somewhat disguised by a poor trip......handled the SA main track last winter.......drops into maiden claiming 2nd out after the layoff.....well meant today

2  Tiz A Daisy   woke up in for 35K to get 4 lbs. off.....M Jones means business this afternoon

1  Hello Stormy   trainer isn't very successful with 1sters but this filly managed a 2nd in her mc be awfully dangerous in her 2nd lifetime start.....step up in claiming price hinting this runner benefited from her racing experience

5  Floracita   showed life in her 1st real dirt experience at Fpx in her latest.......impressive bullet 5F work at Hol since.......might be sitting on best ever


race 2    average clarity

2  Heart Of A Madam   seemingly prefers conventional dirt.....owns speed but is ratable........seems likely to get a good trip with Tyler Baze who is doing awfully well so far in his comeback

8  Tip Your Hat   Woodbine invader has been laid up since Nov. and shows up in the Mitchell barn and drops......a very dangerous combination.....bred to appreciate her 1st ever run on conventional dirt

5  Warren's Venedalucy   6F at Santa Anita seems to be a very good fit for this DeLeon runner.......filly has beaten quite a few in this field in the past

6  Melanistic   won 4 in a row since going on Lasix and then faded late to 4th in last but it was a two turn sprint of 6 1/2F......back to a one turn sprint and 6F.....owns solid early speed.....very dangerous


race 3    average clarity

3  Buckleberry    looking for a repeat of his effort 2 races this afternoon it was a one mile turf affair......dueled with an outstanding 2 year old in nasty pace and was only beaten by a length.......and ran well from off the pace in his other turf mile race

2  Gervinho   broke her maiden like a good thing at 1st asking.......beautiful bred to handle the sod (full bro to Lakerville).......and decently bred to get the distance

6  I'm Wide Awake   showed blistering pace in just missing in his MSW debut.....bred very well to handle the sod and the distance


race 4    average clarity

7  Toluca   all 4 sprint races (turf, AW & dirt) fit well here.......very competitive in all four despite not receiving the best of jock today.....come on Tyler

5  Oscillator   Periban runner owns 2 solid efforts in 2 lifetime races and continues to work at SA as if a 3rd will occur on Oct. 8th 2012

6  Miss Lady Ellen   same as above for this O'Neill charge with the works being at Hol

3  Cori Celesti   won her maiden debut impressively at Fpx winning a 4F affair by 3 lengths.......trainer/jockey have been winning at an incredible 40% clip (last 60 starters) as a combo


race 5    average clarity

1  Amazingly   very solid win on the grass at 2 in MSW debut.....not much in next 3 lifetime races but the trainer loves to fire 3rd out after layoffs and that is today's scenario.....filly will be very formidable if she is up to her debut race

Budidinha   best route turf credentials here and appears to be in good form......does tend to hang or would have been top pick

2  Warren's Mo Money   best ever on the lawn was 2nd out after a layoff in a race last summer........2nd out after the layoff today

Dazzletown   trainer is waking up.....jock is waking is also improving showing better early pace and final times


race 6    average clarity

3  Timberlite   on the right end of the learning curve and gets a significant rider upgrade........1st on the conventional dirt but I like his pedigree for it

8  Dylan Donnelly   well proven in two turn affairs.........laid up but returning as if ready and ready with more speed put into him.....only mount of the day for M Smith seems significant

10  Candy's Jewel   only race at 1 1/16 was extremely strong for the MSW since December but returns with Bejarano riding for the 1st time.....sure hints he is all set to fire fresh off of the bench

1  Fit To Rule   very unlucky in 3 lifetime starts in that he caught 3 very stout since 5 Aug 12 but sure is training awfully well.....rather sure meant and ready


race 7    slightly above average clarity

Ambitoness   very strong effort 1st time under the tutelage of Jeff Mullins in latest.......repeat of that effort here with a reasonable journey and he should be tough to beat

7  Collating Lady   very consistent sort on any surface.....lost to our top pick 2 races back but almost ran as well.....trainer is off to a good start at the new meeting

Malusita   needed last.....positive jock change.....good chance to be loose on the front end.....dangerous wire to wire threat

9  Elegant   GG invader has been running fairly well versus better at GG......needs a very clever ride from the difficult outer-most 9 post


race 8    average clarity

2  First Class Flyer    monster grass MSW win last July after a clunker debut on the AW........has always trained as if she is something special on Santa Anita's conventional dirt.....gets to run on it today

9  Twelve Folds   competitive in all 7 lifetime starts.......but seems best on the SA main track and should welcome a return to it

7  Trapper's Bounty   last effort at Fpx in a non-claiming event looks the gimme to drop and go go go today

3  Lookin For Money   very bad start in lifetime debut and still won......somewhat poor beginning in 2nd lifetime start and only lost by a length in a 100K over a year but training well enough to possible be ready fresh


race 9    slightly above average clarity

3  Upbeat Mood   big move forward in last.....broke tardy and ran way too wide or would be 2 for 2 on the sod....10 post that day.......3 post today.....same effort with a smoother trip and she will be tough here

5  Bares Tripper   very solid effort crushing foes in a 2 turn sprint at Fpx.......O.K. grass pedigree......and she proved that she can handle two turns albeit at a print distance

7  Truly Marie   decent 1st ever on the sod and at a route in move by Sadler since putting into her some endurance building works

6  Flashy Ways   won for fun in mc debut in mid Aug......endurance building works since......... adequate grass pedigree and Talamo sticks around.......trainer does awfully well with limited starters


10   slightly below average clarity

7  Strange Luck   great spot to be a 1st timer that is ready because this appears to be a soft regiment hints that this filly is just that

8  Target Engaged   connections are hoping that blinkers off and dropping from MSW to mc 30K awakens this filly.......recent drills hint that the blinkers off has helped

6  Princess Corredora   bet in mc debut at Fpx and showed some life in a 4F affair especially late.......blinkers on to help her focus and sit closer in the early stages in her 2nd lifetime start

4  Going On Rehab   trainer is not much with 1st timers and very dangerous with 2nd time starters.....2nd lifetime run here

1  Sultry Season

3  Kiptiddy Do
