Santa Anita for Friday 7 May 2021

OK race card to start the new week of racing at The Great Race Place.

Best of luck as always !

 

race 1    average clarity

1  Pushing Sixty   seems best racing at one mile on the grass (2 1 0 1).........(5 0 0 0) everywhere else.......a.m. preparation for today's race is improved and this girl's latest isn't bad......jock knows this filly inside and out as he has been aboard for all 7 of her races

5  Vegas Palm   very consistent grass horse from the Gary Mandella barn finally overcame her tendency to hang with albeit with a nose win at GG........she owns a good history at SA on the grass and draws Prat for the 1st time......dangerous sort

4  Goodtingscominpink

 

race 2    average clarity

5  At the Spa   trainer seldom wins with a 1st time starter but this Jorge Periban MSW 1ster sure appears to be outworking everyone in this field of 6......and it is much easier for a trainer to get a given horse ready to handle an abbreviated sprint race of 4 1/2 than more conventional sprint distances

3  Munny Penny   Andrew Lerner won a baby race with a 1st time starter last weekend and his MSW 1st time starter crushed the competition and had plenty of support at the windows.......works seem good enough and gets a good dirt sprint jock in Cedillo

4  Lovherheart

 

race 3    average clarity

4  Zabava   three straight solid efforts since the blinkers were taken off of this five year old mare invading for FG.........trainer Keith  Desormeaux thought highly enough of his new shooter to step her up into an alw race on 26 March at the FG's but she was scratched when the race was taken off the turf.......and last but not least Prat wants the mount

2  Sugary   SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE  Martin Jones (a one horse horse trainer these days) has a good handle on this filly who needs plenty of time between races and Jones shows patience and gives it to her......like this kind and you don't have to be concerned the to race is a "tune-up/gimme"

1  Wind Tartare

 

race 4    average clarity

4  Onenightstandards   might be a very good claim by Glatt at Kee as this colt sure improved in his latest 1st time running with Lasix.......Glatt is solid with shippers and 1st out following a claim.......and he is able to get the meets runaway leader in wins in Flavien Pratt

3  Club Cal   one horse trainer Cindy Kelley has her three year old training as if he will repeat his 20 March race which is a par like effort for the level......(3 1 1 1) overall at today's one mile dirt distance.......lone mount of the day for Victor Espinoza who is being very selective these days......that suggests this is a live mount.......and......now she gets a race where the fractions should be faster than average.......such a deal

2  Phantom Dance

 

race 5    average clarity

1  Ultimate Hy   nice one mile turf MSW debut last January finishing 2nd.........then this filly moved forward to graduate in her 2nd lifetime start in early April which was also a one mile turf race........good post and strong late finishing turf jock in Rispoli who should sit mid pack saving ground thru turn one with plenty of speed playing into his hands up front.......hard not to like

5  Big Clare   back to Prat who owns a 1st and a 2nd and a 3rd on this filly after being absent for her last racing endeavor........dull number earned despite winning her race at onle mile on the garss two back but it was still impressive as she sat dead last in a pace-less race where she also had some trip trouble and yet still passed all her foes

2  Harper's Gallop  SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE 

 

race 6    below average clarity

6  Lady Doc   trainer is night and day better with 2nd time starters than 1st timers.......Eric Kruljac is often at his most dangerous "1st at a route".........that and this girl's MC25K debut appeared to be nothing more then a tune-up.......speed jock up hints this filly has more speed than she displayed in her debut

7  Rowangoeshollywood   moved forward in her 2nd lifetime start turf sprint to turf route off of 21 days rest.......so 2nd out in a dirt route race after a decent layoff sprint dirt race should produce a similar improvement in today's 4th lifetime start which comes off of 21 days rest

2  Starship Sky

3  Katla   

1  Blazeinonbayou

 

race 7    average clarity

2  Loud Mouth   last five races with Lasix all fit fine here and she gets it today.........latest win came off of short rest (14 days) three races back........so the quick turnaround of 12 days for today's race seems like a good thing

3  Brickyard Ride   after two fabulous efforts/figs this colt regressed in his latest.......needs to rebound and also might need for the 5 horse to not press him too much........ tough call but very dangerous if he does mount a rebound

1  Colt Friction

 

race 8    average clarity

6  Bedrock   trainer Peter Miller is starting to heat things up and he gets Prat to ride for the 1st time........and back to the 25K level where he scored two races back........and like the race 2 back he enters for 22,500 to get 2 lbs off.......and this time with 1st time Prat on his back

7  Restless Rambler   when you have a horse that needs to have a loose lead to preform well "who ya gonna call?" Maldonado

8  Castle

2  Awhitesportscoat

1  Erotic
