Santa Anita for Saturday 12 June 2021

OK 9 race card today and an 11 race card on Sunday for some unknown reason.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

5  My Summer Dream   blinkers on and just what you want to see as improved a.m. work......race has a lack speed and this route horse might have enough to be in the vanguard early......and if he is his endurance should be strong coming off of 4 lifetime routes to start his career........should go off a price

3  Prince Magician   good races turf to dirt back in relatively short rest......but this time Palma tries turf to turf back in relatively short rest......interesting maneuver might produce his best lifetime turf race.....if so he fits well here

6  Mahaamel

2  Uncle Jeff

 

race 2    above average clarity

4  Big Sweep   3 for 3 lifetime in dirt sprints and all three of the efforts/figs are powerful races......away since late August 2020 but Glatt usually has quality layoff runners ready to roll fresh off of the bench.......regular rider Prat stays put

2  Private Mission   very impressive MSW winning debut for this Baffert filly at SA last Oct......laid up after her 2nd start which wasn't too shabby either.......a.m. work screams meant and ready once again.......dangerous three year old

1  Bella Vista

 

race 3    below average clarity

4  Invictataus   need to lead type has a decent chance of getting it for the 1st time in a sprint race as this race definitely lacks the commodity.......this gelding has won 2 of 5 and a 2nd when he has gotten the early lead in route races

3  Sea of Liberty   race profile plays against this Sadler five year old but it might not matter as his efforts/figs fit fine at the given level and for most in this field they do not

1  Indy Jones

5  Erotic

 

race 4    average clarity

4  Drizella   nice MSW two year old debut running 2nd (albeit 2nd by 10L) to a "monster"........5 solid drills since the race.......owns some solid early speed........hard not to like this two year old filly

1  It's Simple   very impressive series of works for this O'Neill 1st time starter and Doug seems overdue to have a nice baby........dangerous 2nd selection

3  Sally Sanford

6  Infinite Love

2  Miss Shady

 

race 5    below average clarity

3  Mucho Del Oro   Hess three year old seems like the controlling speed in the race if he handles the two turns of turf.......right guy for the job aboard in Maldonado who has won two straight sprints on this gelding

1  Seeking Refuge   good history for this gelding when Umberto Rispoli has been in the saddle.......and the Manuel Ortiz five year old has the potential for improvement today racing as a 1st time gelding

6  Liar Liar

 

race 6    average clarity

2  Civil Suite   when last seen in May of 2020 this mare ran one of the fastest F&M MC20k's you will ever see........it was her 1st on the dirt and she did with speed on an inside that was slightly dull.........nice work regiment hints Dan Blacker has her fit and ready......all that and we get quite the rider upgrade

1  Li'l Grazen   plenty of speed signed up in this alw affair can play into the hands of this O'Neill seven year old mare who is capable of winning on or off of the pace here.......most likely she will be off the pace today with a good finishing rider in Rispoli up

3  Alice Marble

4  Another Eddie

8  Pray for My Owner

 

race 7    average clarity

3  Nu Pi Lambda   four year old filly owns some speed in a race that lacks it......good post and turf rider in Hernandez to take advantage of the speed favoring race profile.......hard not to like

6  California Kook   away since December so this might be a tune-up.......but if it isn't she is a superior turf runner vs today's competition but she is a turf route horse who lacks speed so she will really have to fly late.......right guy for the job in Prat aboard

4  New Heat

1  Equilove

 

race 8    average clarity

3  Fashionably Fast   very consistent Cal-bred tailed off some in March and April so Pederson smartly has given him more time off than he was getting......work tab suggests the additional time off has him at a peak again.......it is his race to lose if that is the case

5  Brickyard Ride   two straight dull races in a row but like our top choice his recent works hint he will mount a rebound..if he does he has a good shot to wire the field

4  Jamming Eddie

 

race 9    average clarity

2  Colosi   Tyler Baze should sit mid pack saving ground at least thru turn which should set him up well to make his move on the 2nd turn........seven year old gelding is (5 3 1 0) at The Great Race Place and this might be his last opportunity to race at SA until Fall.......so Glatt might pull out all stops to get a good race out of him today

1  Dr. Troutman   need to lead type has the right post to get the lead in this field with multiple speed foes and if he gets it his endurance should be strong with the cut back in distance

4  Platinum Equity

3  Contagion

7  Itsthattime
