HOLDEN THE LUTE: Had finished a good second in his previous race at Santa Anita in October. He showed up in this $40K maiden claimer on closing day at Los Alamitos TB and won like a good thing. He was claimed and we will look for him next out in a starter allowance race at Santa Anita for his new connections as they seek a quick return on their $40K investment.

LADY ON ICE: 3-year-old filly took plenty of action at the wagering windows in this 5 1/2-furlong dirt sprint on closing day at Los Alamitos TB. She was very wide the entire trip and six-wide into the stretch but gamely kept to her task and was gaining ground late. We would love to see her next out going six furlongs or longer.

GO DADDY GO: Was traveling a flat mile on the dirt at Los Alamitos TB on closing day. He tossed his head at the start and was bumped hard and sat last. He angled out at the top of the lane and closed widest of all down the lane and missed by a neck in what was a big try.

COUNTERPARTY RISK: 3-year-old filly was traveling a flat mile on the grass. She was dead last on this speed favoring turf course on opening day at Santa Anita. She angled out at the top of the lane and closed like a freight train to miss by a dwindling head. Trained by Chad Brown, we may see her at Gulfstream Park next out going long on the grass.
