Santa Anita for Saturday 16 March 2013


Early bird sign-up for Triple Crown pubs. saving $30 is now available.

Average clarity rating for every race so I guess that means this is an average race card.


Best of luck as always!



race 1    average clarity

7  Machailasheartlite   solid return to the race wars in latest which was run off of a 14 month layoff.......decent chance to be in a good stalk position a few lengths behind our 2nd pick

5  Rossi Reserve   blew a fairly easy lead in last but sure appears loose and lonely on the lead here with 1/2 furlong less to run

2  Memo To Kathy   I selected this mare on top in her last two races.......but.......she fell off some in last even though she managed her 2nd straight win......but then again this group isn't much and she might bounce back in form some  

1  Single N Lovin  


race 2    average clarity

2  Miss Pipa   vastly improved in last and it was run off of a long layoff.......impressive series of 3 works since......rather sure sitting on lifetime best today

3  Double Ante   fired lifetime best in last and she did it from far back.....too far jock today.....most likely will sit in a more reasonably position......very dangerous late runner

1  Roxelana   Great Britain invader is training as if she is ready for Miller/Stevens.........believe some of her overseas race fit OK here


race 3    average clarity

3  Legacy   1ster sure looks meant and ready for her lifetime debut.......she has hit the track regularly every 7 days since late January.....and her last two drills are very impressive.......sharpest when it counts the most.......right before her big day

2  Illicit Affair   Baffert.......working well.......finishing work regiment with 3 gates works.......sometimes I feel like a broken record......same over and over again for Mr Baffert......another well bred Baff runner most likely ready to roll

6  Zia Zia Zia   par like efforts in both lifetime starts.......but......might need a forward move here as I believe my top two selections have plenty of potential


race 4    average clarity

7  Rolanda   can't say much of about this fillies last 3 turf routes but her MSW debut race down the hill is very solid here......good number and produced the fig despite sitting last in a race with a soft pace

2  Hard Rockin Girl   better than par MSW debut in a turf route......cuts back to a turf sprint for 2nd lifetime start and drops a little.......continues to train well.......few reasons not to believe this filly won't run as well down the majestic SA hill turf course as she did in a turf route

5  Don't Lose Faith   decent grass pedigree for this maiden claiming 1ster.....and the works hint she might be meant and ready for her debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing

6  Cravin' the Heat


race 5    average clarity

5  Eula B.  bad trip (wide with pace) in latest......bad trip (wide) two back......either of those efforts with a better trip today will make her the one to overcome

6  Sunland Village   all three lifetime races fit here.......drops and back in short rest......might be feeling  really good for Cerin to wheel this filly back in such short rest

2  Secret Of Success   good forward move in the right direction in 2nd lifetime start......big shot here if she moves forward again here in her 3rd lifetime endeavor

4  Racy Rosa


Race 6     average clarity

4  Lanida   chased a strong set of fractions in latest and did well to stick around for 2nd.....and 3rd place in the race came bace to run a solid race as our top pick on Thursday........and has the right to improve 2nd out after the layoff

6 Promiscuoussuances    seems to have rebounded to top form with a better than par for today's level in latest.......should be a solid contender here if she manages to hold her form........decent record down the hill (4 1 2 0)

3  Tribalicious   away since October 2011 but training like she is ready and ran well in both lifetime endeavors down the majestic SA hill turf course

2  R Doubleday


race 7    average clarity

6  More Chocolate   hello dirt.........Sadler's filly sure loved the switch to the dirt in last her first ever run on it.......powerful effort and strong aggressive works since......repeat of her last with a slightly cleaner trip and she will be tough here

2  Brushed by a Star   5 year old mare has 4 wins and 3 2nd's in her last 8 races.......trainer Eddie Kenneally is good with shippers and he sure seems to have this mare on edge off of some impressive drills

3  Joyful Victory   strong races in 3 of last 4 for this Larry Jones mare........would have been 2nd choice but I am a touch concerned about her tendency to flatten out some running further than 1 1/16


race 8    average clarity

2  Interaction   last two are solid and the drills since suggest this Mac runner is doing awfully well right now......and so is McAnally who is in better shape physically these days .......7 year old runs all day so 1 1/2 miles is a plus.......(and besides I have a soft spot for the name Interaction as I owned the USA version of Interaction in the late 80's and he was a very consistent hard trying healthy claimer who was one of my favorite runners that I ever owned)

1  Slim Shadey   major bounce back in Grade 2 win in latest.......believe he is still in form.....will need his A game as he tends to get a little flat late in marathon turf races

9  Bourbon Bay   needs a wake up call but sure seems overdo to have one.........4 for 8 in the win column at today's marathon distance..........4 lbs less than his last two races to carry this afternoon

7  Bright Thought


race 9    average clarity

3  Warren's Flasher   not the best of trips in both lifetime races and still managed a 3rd followed by a 2nd.......and seems to have remained sharp popping a solid 4F drill 11 days ago

7  Lady Comic   improved in last going off of Lasix (don't get to write that very often) and like our top pick her a.m. work looks good since her last race........trainer's stock has run better at this meeting than his (16 1 3 3) record would indicate

8  Warren's My Queen   dismal (24 0 0 5) lifetime record but her effort 2 back (toss out last doesn't like route racing) at today's 7F distance is an interesting 3rd place finish in that she managed it after acting up at the gate......only needs a couple lengths of improvement and if she behaves it seems logical she will get it

4  Daze

2  My Yammy Heat

6  Persian Kitten
