Santa Anita for Monday 11 October 2021

TAKE NOTE: Just wanted everyone to know that major changes are coming to The Racing Digest next year which I will post sometime in the next few weeks.

Not crazy about this card that has 7 claiming races. Comment for top choice only as the work load got a little much with 4 straight days of racing. Be back with you of Friday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    below average clarity

1  Billy's Bet   good spot to make your MSW debut as this field seems to be nothing are impressive for this debuting maiden.......trainer is 2 for 20 with 6 others hitting the board in 2021 but she hasn't had the best of luck.......should be a price

2  Qubabe

8  Vanisky

3  Heaven's Music

5  Outta Hand


race 2    average clarity

2  Careless Kitten   with speed jock Maldonado getting the mount for the 1st time look for this gelding to shoot to the lead in this race that lacks speed......for the most part on the lead and on the inside has been the desired position to be in in these one mile dirt races

5  Funkenstein

4  Warrens Candy Man


race 3    average clarity

3  Star of Africa   filly seems highly likely to great trip saving ground on or stalking the lead in what should be a reasonable set of fractions.....jock is cold but he does own the last win for this four year old

1  Sugary

7  Miss Flawless

8  Over Attracted

4  Rose Prince


race 4   below

average clarity

4  Mr. Dougie Fresh   great time to drop following a voided claim and for a trainer that is not afraid to lose a horse.......and the fact Prat stays around supports the notion that this gelding has recovered enough with 6 1/2 weeks off to be tough dropping from 16K to 10K

7  Secret Touch

2  Mountain Spirit

5  Sayin Grace


race 5    below average clarity

3  Ox Bridge   four year old gelding is best near or on the front end of things which he where he should be today with a sizzling 4F bullet work put in just 5 days ago..........and O'Neill drops his gelding to the lowest level of his career to help get the mission accomplished

2  Bud Knight

7  Stones River

5  Avigale

6  Stone's River


race 6    average clarity

2  For Love Not Money   Glatt is only 3% win with his last 53 1st at a route but on the other hand he is 29% win dropping multiple levels........leaning on the latter stat as this filly owns a decent pedigree to handle the two turns

9  Rattrapante

1  Medusa's Gaze

5  Curious Inji

6  Slew South


race 7    average clarity

3  Little Juanito   very consistent in turf sprints that were not run on the SA turf hill......1st ever racing at 6F on the grass but it appears 6 panels should be to his liking.........we shall find out if that is so about 4 PM Pacific

5  Rookie Mistake

2  Gucina

7  Tilted Towers

6  Bear Chum


race 8    average clarity

4  Pelican Way   2 for 2 since the blinkers went on this colt........just claimed by trainer Azcarate and if his new acquisition repeats his last which was a winning effort back in mid July he should be tough.......trainer is 42% win getting claimers to repeat and 23% win 1st after a claim.......seems dangerous

10  Defense Wins

1  Dark Prince

5  Charge Cash

6  Fast as Cass


race 9    average clarity

2  Tiz Tact Toe   race 2 back which was at today's one mile turf distance is solid and somewhat disguised.........stout turf jock Rispoli should get a great trip on or stalking the lead saving ground........good rider/trainer combo in Rispoli and Hess

4  Solo Animo

8  Star Sailor

6  Circumvent

9  World Cruiser


race 10    average clarity

6  Moraz   tons the best here if he runs any of his 4 lifetime efforts racing at SA.......and he should be primed to fire a good effort 2nd out after a layoff and racing turf to dirt

4  Nice Ice

9  Velvet Slippers

2  Sweet Perl

5  Styledome
