Santa Anita for Tuesday 1 January 2013


Happy New Year 2013 to all!

Seems like a good card this afternoon if the race track remains in the same good shape as yesterday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  I Don't Care Who  hidden awakening in last......and training vastly better........and sure like the fact that Art Sherman doesn't drop this gelding.......decent shot for best ever today

8  Tenango   12 for the last 14 MSW to maiden claiming in the money finishes for Dennis Patterson......didn't care for a route in last.......done little wrong in 5 lifetime sprints

3  Shackbamalama   work tab hints at being ready for lifetime debut.........M. Pender runner also is working as if he owns some early gas

4  Run Away With Me


race 2    average clarity

1  Joe Carl   only true closer in this field of 6 and a good one....good chance to get clear sailing with only 5 foes to negotiate

3  Honor The Deputy   1st time with Becerra and training well........dislikes the AW and handles conventional dirt quite well.....can sit mid pack behind a lively pace

5  Unexpected Gift   full speed ahead for this lead type only who will try and shake two other speed horses here......right guy for the job in Maldonado


race 3    slightly above average clarity

9  Judge Carr   massive wake up 1st time with the blinkers off in drills since.....Hendricks smartly steps this maiden on up $20K.....obviously a good sign

4  Through My Eyes   pounded in maiden debut at the windows and failed but it was on one of those drying out whacked out days this fall on the Hollywood synthetic where the results race after race were crazy.......deserves another chance

2  Alydidit   not much 1st ever on the grass and 1st ever at a route in last.....toss it out......previous two races fit and they both are disguised by poor trips

3  Prime Issue


race4    above average clarity

4  Elegant   improved horse since Hollendorfer claimed 3 races back.....and has trained as if she has held her form.......good post......good rider.....should be tough

9  Van Brit   9 for 15 at today's distance on the grass........yikes.......runs well fresh.......will need a clever ride by T C Baze from a post on the grass and at a route that was 0 for 30 at the SA fall meeting

3  Bonita Star   3 for 10 at 1 mile on the sod.......0 for 7 at other grass distances........easy win in layoff last and training well......might be feeling awfully good and will need to be to beat our top two selections

5  Cosset


race 5    average clarity

9  Rossi Reserve   drop makes sense as Hess only claimed for $8K and has yet to win with this mare......good stats on conventional dirt....sure seems like the controlling speed as well

8  Warren's Samantha   just ran best ever on the AW and appears to be quite a bit better on the "real dirt" fire best ever on the conventional dirt this afternoon.......very formidable if she does

6  Here Comes Bonnie   bad race..........good race........bad race.........might live up to her name this afternoon

2  Memo To Kathy


race 6    average clarity

6  Winds Of Dubai   very solid grass efforts/figs in last 2 races versus significantly better......and......back to Gomez.....solid here if holds his form

3  In High Regards   best grass effort to date (and only race that fits well) is the only time this 5 year old ran at 1 mile on the turf.....and the race was at SA and the rail was out 15 feet like today

1  Lite That Baby   last might hide some ability to handle the sod......little chance to put in a close or produce a decent grass fig in 1st ever grass race because it was a race with a ridiculously slow pace........good sign Mr Bejarano sticks around

5  Ride Along


race 7    below average clarity

4  Spring Gal   best set of drills for a Becerra 1st timer in many a moon......trainer hasn't done much with 1st timers the last few years but he used to be quite good with horse's 1st out of the box

10  Good Party   another 1ster working as if she can run some.......she shows both speed and endurance in her work regiment

2  Sophie's Secret   burning up cash at the windows but still seems dangerous here if the 1st time starters don't jock up this ever is lone run at SA..........can be on or close to the lead from the get go

9  Rockin Cowgirl


race 8    average clarity

2  Scarlet Strike   hit the board in both lifetime Grade 1 (and at a route)  races on the main track.......nice grass lights barn........that'll do

1  Heir Kitty    major league rebound in last with the blinkers off......geared down at the wire.........won lone grass race (a sprint affair at Hollywood and her MSW debut) under a hand ride and won by 4.......bred well enough to get the mile........Gomez sticks around

10  Sky High Gal   very nice grass runner from Kentucky with the most grass credentials in the field but a very tough post at 1 mile on the sod at SA or would have been top pick

3  Fiftyshadesofhay


race 9    average clarity

13  Sugar Spice   already the best proven speed in the race by quite a bit and adds the blinkers for drills......decent gate to wire opportunity today.....stout trainer/jock combo

4  She's Actceptional   Julio Canani isn't much with MSW 1sters but he is rather dangerous with mc 1sters......and the works look good for a bottom level maiden claimer

6  Warren's Gussie   another 1st timer training well enough to possible be meant and ready for her lifetime debut......and it sure seems significant that Bejarano and his agent elect to ride this 1ster

3  Ya Wanna Hug

14  Racy Rosa

12  Holiday Rose
