Santa Anita for Sunday 29 September 2013


Average looking card today. Be back with you on Thursday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    slightly below average clarity

3  Hazardous   much better horse on conventional dirt.....all 4 lifetime races on it fit solidly here

4  Disarm   another who prefers conventional dirt.......drop makes sense as this Sadler runner has hardly earned his keep in 2013

2  Judge Carr   yet another who seems better on "real" dirt and like our top 2 picks drops down

8  Billy Win


race 2    average clarity

7  Sheza Smoke Show   tightly spaced aggressive work regiment strongly hints that this Eurton 1st timer is meant and ready to roll in her MSW debut

9  Miss Personality    Baffert 1ster was training so so at Bhp but sure woke up when she starting training at Santa Anita.......seems ready

8  Southern Sunshine   very solid figs in 2 of 3 lifetime starts for this Peter Miller runner.......good sign Gomez sticks around for another race

4  Feel The Charge


race 3    slightly below average clarity

4  Dunmore East   claimed for 12.5K by Bonde and the connections bothered to geld a horse they are running for 8K.....that tells me they mean business as does a recent improved work on the SA surface

9  Bev N Bud    just claimed by Diodoro and he sure got this "in form" cheap claimer to work big (46:3 bullet)......rider/trainer scored with a long-shot on opening day

6  Storming Kentucky   another 1st time gelding........solid work regiment combined with the ultimate equipment change seemingly have this Myadi laid up runner ready to roll

7  Silver Wings

Long-shot consideration:   3  Warren's Railbird   somewhat better on conventional dirt and sure does his best running at today's distance.....lifetime best is at 6 1/2F and at SA


race 4    slightly below average clarity

8  Top Knot   2 nice route races since the blinkers were added.....cut back in distance seems like a good thing

5  Classic Candy   blinkers on tells me they want the lead today and that seems like a smart move as this filly appears to be a "lead type only"....good speed rider up

12  Kevin's Kool Kat   if our top two push each other too much in the early stages this Mitchell runner might be in the perfect mid pack position

11  Little Unusual


race 5    slightly above average clarity

1  Tom's Tribute   both lifetime grass races are quite a bit better than par when you adjust for trouble......good post and rider....clean trip with the same horse and he should be tough as nails

5  Quiet Force  trainer seems to be firing on all cylinders......needed last (and it was rather decent)......full throttle go today

7  Horizontalyspeakin   definitely on the right end of the leaning curve......should be in the hunt from the get go.......very dangerous with an average pace or less being set

2  Little Jerry


race 6    average clarity

8  Hollywood Icon   nowhere in debut (and ice cold in the wagering) last March for Baffert....changed hands to Yakteen and nowhere in 2nd lifetime start.....Baffert takes her back? very strange.......believe he figured something out as she sure is working markedly better for lifetime start #3

2  Tappingintherain  solid race 2 back run way back in June.....laid up since late July but working as if she is returning fully ready and draws Mike Smith

1  Humor Me   two poor efforts in 3 lifetime races and they were on the synthetic at Dmr......the one good lifetime race was on the dirt at SA late in 2012....wake up city today for this Baffert runner

5  Miss Charming

Long-shot consideration:   7  The Magic Stone   solid move forward in 2nd lifetime race and it is disguised by a poor trip.......1st on conventional dirt and I believe the real thing is a plus for this bomber


race 7    average clarity

9  Pebble Beach Baby   like last year improving with every (sprint) start....solid time at Bsr in last....same or better should make her tough here

8  Majestic Stinger   good history sprinting on fast rated surfaces including SA.....and this is sunny S Cal so fast is a given

1  She's A Go Girl   dislikes Dmr and I believe her trainer knows with that in mind this looks like a gimme/gimme/go (Dmr/Dmr/SA) senario

2  Pat's Back


race 8    slightly above average clarity

4  Indy Point   didn't run at all as the favorite in the AP exertion whatsoever most likely.....trained fabulously since on the SA turf....rebound city today.....Gary Stevens has started the SA meet with a bang

8  Vagabond Shoes  strong grass figs in last 2 at 1 1/8th and 1 3/8th's on the 1 1/4 sure seems like a good fit

2  Holding Glory   talented Brazil turf invader finally gets to strut his stuff on the grass.......2nd best horse by far in Grade 1 AW last and it is somewhat hidden by a bad trip

13  Slim Shadey


race 9    average clarity

4  Raised A Secret   very consistent sprinter........bad trip in last and still won going away.....also had a bad trip in lone race at SA and he earned a strong adjusted for trouble fig same as he did in his last

5  Wild Dude   on the right end of the learning curve.....last fits......more would be icing on the cake

8  Justa Runner   Baffert bothered to ship all the way to Saratoga (a sign he thinks highly of this fellow) but unfortunately caught a sloppy track.......strong work tab back in S Cal.......rebound city

6  Let's Get Crackin


race 10    below average clarity  (#13 has a decent shot if draws into the field)

8  Toppers Sunshine   very impressive in 1st on the turf at Tup last April at today's 1 mile distance.....not so hot in her other grass race at 1 1/16th.......but training as well or better than anyone in the field.....might be up for her big run in that 1st ever turf endeavor

11  Hair On Fire   tough post but owns some good early gas......very dangerous if she can clear most of the field by turn 1

3  Motivated   gimme MSW/go MC at Tampa to break maiden last winter......non claiming race layoff gimme in last.......claimer today.......go go go today 2nd out after the layoff

1  Smart N Dreamy

7  Silent Deposition

5  Born Lucky
