LOS ALAMITOS TB
Just another five horse field to start off with. Thanks to Santa, Santa Anita opens on the 26th. In here No. 2 Scratchmeifyoucan will be the one to catch. No. 4 Ebony Cat exits a key race and will be sitting right off the pace with the hot riding Santiago Gonzalez in the irons. 2-4
Five runners again and that’s before scratches. In here No. 5 Thundering Gale gets the big drop in class off back-to-back bullet works, she wins or it could be a minus show pool. 5
In this seven horse field going 5-1/2 furlongs we will use two that are exiting the same race. No. 3 Preordained who finished 3rd by a 1/2 length and No. 5 Heavenly Haze who was second by a nose.
Exacta box 3-5
We will take a shot in this straight maiden race and go singling again using first time starter No. 4 Fusaichi Samurai a $260k purchase who has been gelded. He has the win first out back-to-back five furlongs works by Baffert and his go to rider Martin Garcia gets the call. 4
This $8k claimer is a real puzzler, we get nine fillies and mares going 5-1/2 furlongs and anyone of the nine could pop and we suggest hitting the all button or just taking a little shot and single No. 6 Melanie Rose on the drop in class shipping in from the Gate for a top Northern Cal trainer. 6 (all).
Must go four deep in here using No. 2 Octofy who broke her maiden here back in September. No. 3 Pretty Enuff who exits the same race and she also broke her maiden here back in September. No. 4 Some Caan Job also exits the race as does No. 7 Gracee Hunny who will be the price play. 2-3-4-7
Another race with just five runners before scratches and we will go with No. 1 Swissarella the speed on the rail in this mile race. No. 2 Toomanytomatoes who ran down Swissarella last time out and No. 3 Light Striker who exits the same race and owns a win over the track. 1-2-3
In this $30k maiden claimer for 2yo we will once again need to go four deep using No. 3 Short of Money a first time starter with a very good last work over the trace. No. 6 Secret Room also a first timer who is out of the dam Noon Time Dancer who has dropped 5 winners from 5 starters. No. 8 Mr. Game Seven has the turf to dirt and route to sprint angle. No. 10 H R Express is the stablemate of Short of Money, he gets a drop in class and will get the perfect trip from this post. 3-6-8-10
Tri box 3-6-8-10
