Santa Anita for Saturday 28 September 2013


Sure like today's card which is loaded with quality and clarity.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

5  Domonica    broke poorly.....ran wide......and still was only a length or two off of the lead in an eventful MSW jock today for 2nd lifetime start

9  Another Victoria   solid early speed in mc debut.....smartly steps up into MSW racing.......good sign Bejarano sticks around......should be in it from the get go

12  Yana   very strong work regiment for someone like Bill Spawr with a 1st timer.......would have rated higher if it wasn't for a tough post to cope with for a 1ster

10  Writer Fever



race 2    slightly above average clarity

7  Southern Sunrise   repeat of any lifetime race for this Puype runner wins this race......that'll do

8  Hello Frankie   very sharp drills on the SA dirt.......dismal conventional dirt history but those races were with the blinkers on.....only"dirt" effort was fine with the blinkers off which they our today

4  Tribal Smoke    impressive mc debut win at Bsr and 2 solid works since.......the last of which was at SA.......could be in the hunt if he makes a forward move......recent works hint that he will

6  Topper's Ghost


race 3    average clarity

1  Bourne Hot   on the improve with every start both in pace and final time.......should be in it from the get go with a top echelon jock aboard

6  Shiva Ryan     shipper from Crc with decent connections sure fired a solid turf route in his MSW debut which is never an easy task for a 2 year old 1ster......same or better seems likely today

7  All For Us   good debut 3rd on the AW at AP in a solid MSW field.......solid work tab since.......must be a good one in Proctor's eyes for him to ship this fellow to a tougher circuit

9  Carson's Ten


race 4    average clarity  (#14 has a shot if draws into the field)

8  Kristo    pounded at the windows in MSW debut and only a bad trip kept him out of the winners circle as he was caught wide too close to the reassuring works since on the SA main track......jock will be out to make amends

1  Candy's Shoes   like our top pick this Hollendorfer runner had little chance in his MSW debut as he was also caught wide too close to a decent pace......better trip and the same effort and he has a decent shot at the circle of joy

7  Wrightwood   good look work tab for this Mike Harrington 1st timer......and I like his pedigree for sprinting

11  Touchdownwilson


race 5    average clarity

8  She's A Tiger   owns very impressive early speed.....capable of going eye to eye in solid pace and still hold together (at least in a sprint).......trains on and ran on (in her MSW debut) as if conventional dirt might be her preferred surface.....and she's not too shabby on the AW

1  Fascinating   on the improve and route racing should be right up her alley......might get a lively pace and she appears like she should get a ground saving mid pack position thru turn one.......who could ask for more

6  Belle Of The Fleet   strong impressive move forward in 2nd lifetime race and sure is bred nicely to appreciate a route of ground.....recent drills at SA suggest "real" dirt should be just fine

3  Antiquity


race 6    slightly above average clarity

3  Tiz Flirtatious   ultra consistent mare on the turf (7 4 3 0) finished up her Grade 2 win in last with an easy hand ride home.........great drills since.....feeling oh so good

7  Marketing Mix   not at her best in latest and the Beverly D. at AP is in my mind the toughest grass race in the USA outside of the B. C. to win for F & M's.......only needs a small rebound to have as good a shot as our top pick at winning this affair

2  Lady Shamrock   likes the 1 1/4 distance on the on the SA grass......and Salder is solid blinkers on then off in next start.....and that is the case today.....dangerous

1  Topic


race 7    slightly above average clarity

4  Can The Man   capable of the kind of early speed that should put him on a loose lead here........and that is a scary thing with a Baffert 2 year old in a Grade 1

7  Dance With Fate  bad trip Grade 1 last or would have won the race.......couldn't train much better......Bejarano will most likely keep our top pick within his sights

6  Tamarando   on the improve with every start and runs as if 2 turn racing with be to his liking.....should be in the hunt for the top prize if he handles conventional dirt

5  Roundupthelute


race 8    average clarity

2  Macaabra   very impressive 1st ever in the U S of A in last........came flying late from far out of it......was a front running type in GB......hmmm

5  Rosies Ready   not a lot of speed in here.....seems likely to have a chance at a nice stalk position with was the route to victory in her last

1  Our Pure Creation   ultra impressive 2 turn sprint MSW debut win at Bsr in last........decent grass breeding......shot at getting loose from a decent post....good pedigree to get the added distance.....proved she can handle two turns

8  Smooth Talker


race 9    slightly above average clarity

3  Beholder   the perfect public work-out in last....not pushed at all......super-star filly should feel awfully good in her 1st ever versus older

5  Flashy American   McPeek filly has won her last 5 races at today's 1 1/16th distance.....owns a reliable (relaxed) mid pack running style

7  Joyful Victory   likes the distance.....likes SA......and Larry Jones knows what it takes to ship and win......very dangerous

6  Authenticity


race 10    average clarity

2  Golden Ticket   another coming off a race versus very soft competition and crushing her opponents finishing up with plenty in the tank.....very consistent sort on multiple conventional dirt surfaces....bodes well for handling his 1st ever on the SA dirt

10  Mucho Macho Man   seems at best when placed in Grade 1's.....and his lone race at SA might be his best usual he ought to be in it from the get go

7  Paynter   Baffert four-year-old has never run a bad race on fast rated racing surfaces......can take this if he brings his "A game"

5  You Know I Know

Longshot consideration:   8  Chief Havoc   1st two races with the blinkers off were solid earning figs that fit fine here........went sent south in two races since......impressive recent works hint a rebound....gets in 3 lbs. lighter than anyone in the field.......dangerous price shot especially with the combo of Miller/Gomez


race 11    average clarity

8  Pontchatrain   improving sort and now is training vastly better.......seems better suited for sprinting.....believe fires lifetime best today

5  Warren's Veneda   versatile sort has handled different surfaces and distance awfully my guess is the SA hill won't be a problem for this athletic type

9  Heir Kitty   very good history running at 6 and 6 1/2 furlongs including a race down the majestic SA hillside grass course

11  Unusual Way

7  Judy In Diguise

6  Travesura
