Santa Anita for Sunday 7 April 2013


Mostly small fields today but the card seems O.K. Be back with you on Thursday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  Robie The Cat   very logical drop to condition claiming for this Richard Mandella runner who hasn't won a race since 2010......and Mandella's stock continues to fire on all cylinders

1  Cold Bay   0 for 11 in the money races until this Harrington charge race on fast conventional dirt where he now owns a 1st and a 2nd in two races on it

3  World Renowned    Gary Stute runner fired a strong maiden breaking win in latest and returns in very short rest.......fits as well as anyone here if can handle the physical stress of racing back in 7 days


race 2    average clarity

2  Warren's Morgan   trainer has had one of the best meetings of his career and he must love that winning feeling because he runs this filly back for 8K off of a strong bottom level win/effort/fig

5  Courageousandbold   efforts/figs in 5 of her last 7 endeavors fit fine at today's lowly level of racing........likely to be in the hunt from the get go with a dangerous speed rider aboard in Pedroza

4  Real Housewife   O'Neill claimed this mare for 16K and now runs he for 8K.......earlier this week he cut the price in half of another horse he just claimed and won by the length of the stretch with the horse


race 3    slightly above average clarity

2  In The Stars   has been running well versus mostly better than these and she seems to do her best running at today's turf distance of 1 mile........and then there's that Mandella hot hot

5  Moone's My Name   Sadler is only 1 of his last 14 with shippers to the States but this GB import was ultra consistent overseas and she sure is training as if she is meant and ready for her debut in the good old U S of A


race 4    average clarity

6  Yes It's Snowing   seems like O'Neill may of made a decent claim here as this geldings last two fast rated conventional dirt races are solid here especially his last which was run at today's somewhat specialty sprint distance of 7F......1st start for his new trainer might be a wining one

4  Afleet Cowboy   small drop in claiming price........2nd out after a long trainer with claimers in Bill Spwar........all add up to a top contender in this 16K 7F affair

1  Format V.   very strong race in latest.........repeat of that effort makes him as dangerous as anyone in this field.......but it has been awhile since he ran solid back to back races........Bejarano sticks with the horse.......seems like a good sign that this gelding might break the mold today


race 5    average clarity

5  Funny Belle    very impressive seemingly out of nowhere 4F bullet drill for this Melody Conlon mare.........and Bejarano and his agent jump on the runner which supports the notion that this mare might be improved since her last.......good chance for top jock to sit in a nice chase position chasing our 2nd pick

1  Noise Of The Crowd   ultra consistent GG invader on any surface and any time interval between races.......seems like she will be loose on the lead here but she can chase if need be.......good speed jock in the irons

4  Secret Cove   long overdo drop for this Miller charge who hasn't earned her keep over the past year or so.....time to try to pay bills


race 6    average clarity

5  Warren's Tyler S.   just keeps getting better.........and better...........and better.........and the way that Gutierrez has been training it seems likely that this colt will continue to get.........

4  Surf N Ski   broke tardy in maiden debut and then showed he can run some...........3 solid works since.........trainer is better with 2nd timers.......seems likely to move forward today

2  Bev's Finale   lone race run which was way back in July fits well here if this gelding returns the same regiment is a bit sketchy........but.........the trainer is very good off of long layoff........tough call

3  Itsalwayssomething


race 7    average clarity

8  Pure Loyalty   exits two consecutive very fast heats on the dirt one of which was at 1 mile.......1 mile on the sod here.....1st on the green carpet but is bred decently for it.......4th straight ride for Stevens on this Glatt runner so he should know this colt quite well

4  Unbridled Giant    much better than looks in print in both lifetime races......very green in both races one of which was on the worked.......likely to see a much more behaved settled runner today

1  Say Ow    improved effort in last 1st ever in a turf route........good works since.....good post......jock upgrade......that'll do

5  R S Watson


race 8    average clarity

2  Haverhill   Miller takes over this GP invader who has done nothing but improve since seeing conventional dirt for the 1st time 3 races back

4  Italian Rules   ever so hard to argue with a runner who owns 4 wins and 2 2nd's in 6 lifetime races on conventional dirt......and 1st out after the claim by Bill Spawr which is usually a good thing

5  Kate's Event   toss out last two races on off tracks........3rd race back run on a fast track and at today's 6 1/2 furlong distance fits fine here

1  American Act


race 9    average clarity

7  Real Heat   improving with each and every grass more move in the right direction which I obviously believe will occur as I have him on top makes this Kruljac runner the one to beat here

1  In A Wine Tizzy   better than par races for the level when you adjust for strong fractions for this solid front running grass horse....believe he will be tough from start to finish once again for Maldonado

6  Super Ability   5 year old exits a fast heat in last which was run off of an extended hiatus from the track.......1st long.....1st on the sod.......bred adequately to handle both and Carla Gaines is quite good historically speaking 1st on the grass

3  Alkaray

11  Warren's Nicholas

10  Troy Story
