Los Alamitos for Sunday 8 December 2019

The wet sealed track yesterday yielded speed winners all day long so I trashed my selections for today which I had little confidence in any way and leaned on horses with speed and proven ability and/or breeding favorable for the off going. If the track isn't sealed today that wouldn't be what we are looking for.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    below average clarity

6  Bellazano   good gate horse should aid her chances of utilizing her speed and grabbing the lead........solid rider up

1  Leading Indicators   likes Lrc so that might be the impetus to drop this filly.......if that is the case she sure fits solidly at today's level

4  Appolina   suspect health wise but if she is OK she has early speed and ran a solid race in her lone off track adventure


race 2    below average clarity

6  Stormin Ranger   broke poorly in her MSW debut and still only beaten by 3 1/2L for the win........she can be on or near the lead with a good break today

3  Rocketann   not sure why blinkers off came off in her last after a good race with them on..........back on today........shot to grab the lead or close to it.....good bug boy up

5  Into Rissa   bad gate horse so she has to come from far back.......and she likes to hang (20 0 7 6)


race 3    above average clarity

2  Hydrogen   Baffert colt sure looks loose here and if he runs his race two back he likely could still win without it.......Baffert was 5 for 5 yesterday winning all 5 in a row.......3 bullets in this race to make it 6 straight........yikes-a-rama

4  Jeffnjohn'sthunder   nice forward move in last (better than par) and blinkers on today......should be on or close to the lead which as mentioned above is what we are leaning on today

3  Special Day   Hollendorfer colt is proven long while our today two picks are not......and his lifetime best is at Lrc

5  Azul Coast


race 4    below average clarity

1  I'm the Hero   blinkers back on hopefully will get the same race out of her as she ran three back which was also at 5 1/2 furlongs with the blinks on

7  Elusive Ride   Baffert 1ster appears to be working good enough to handle the given level.......outstanding pedigree to handle the off going

3  Frozen Belle   no action on the board in this girl's MSW debut.......that says it was a gimme for this Hollendorfer filly........go go city today up for a $50K tag

2  La Rosa Drive 

6  Sugar Pickle


race 5    average clarity

3  A Man's Man   works suggests this Koriner MSW 1st timer has talent and some speed.......rather sure this fellow is meant and ready.....decent off track pedigree

4  Afternoon Heat   nice improvement following the Knapp claim.......colt should be rock solid if he can repeat the effort and handles the off going if that's what we get

5  Jetovator   needs to win now as he does his best running at Lrc......has speed and a decent off track pedigree......seems like a contender

2  Grand Louie

7  Loafers Boy


race 6    below average clarity

8  Laker Jet   lifetime best was her lone distance dirt route and the effort was at Lrc........two turf muscle her up public work-outs......big go today.......I hope

3  Lucky Stepper   in need of a drop and gets one.......1st on the dirt but her pedigree for it (and an off track) is just fine

5  Shanghai Barbie   decent route speed in this spot and she seems to appreciate Fuentes on her back........Lrc and an off track are question marks

4  Tiz Wonderfully

6  Girl Can Partie


race 7   average clarity

3  Full of Luck   on the improve with each and every race since the Miyadi claim.......big 58:2 drill preparing for today.....OK off pedigree

6   Justinian   not the best of gate horses but if this colt breaks OK today he should be very loose and tough to wheel in provided he handles the racing surface.......white hot Baffert at the helm

4  River Echo   seems like a good claim of a sharp six year old.........decent shot to be in the mix from the get go especially if our 2nd choice breaks slowly (see above)

I Can Do This


race 8    below average clarity

6  Queen Bee to You   likes Lrc (6 2 2 2) and has handled an off surface in the past......should sit mid pack far enough off what should be a brutal set of fractions

5  Lady Suebee   solid route race two back wiring the field despite setting a fast pace........and her speed on an off track seems even other words she is our speed of the speed pick in the race

2  Mongolian Humor   even if the track is speed favoring this off pace Cerin filly should put in a good finish as this affair is loaded with speed types

3  Mo See Cal

7  Zusha


race 9    average clarity

6  Casillalater   1ster has some solid works (albeit with large internals between drills) and mom has tossed 7 winners from 7 starters........and she owns a decent pedigree for the off going

7  Cali Rocks  ran 2nd at today's level at Lrc in a race run mid September......and this go around this five year old seemingly comes in sharper

10  Daddy's Melody   drops to win and/or drops hoping to loose......either way this Dollase filly seems like a contender versus this soft group of foes

2  Osteria   

8  Swingn It

11  Suezaaana

12 AE   Miracle Miler
