LOS ALAMITOS TB
No. 3 Bob Consultation gets the very capable Alex Canchari in the irons. He will sit off the pace today and make his move on the turn and get the jump on No. 5 When We Met who is in rare form winning four of his last five, losing his last start by a head. 3-5
Maiden $30k 2yo fillies going 6 furlongs. No. 4 Clem Juice was sent off as the 2/1 chalk in her first start at Del Mar’s November meet, she showed good early speed which will play well today in this field. No. 9 Caymus Kat was sent off at 7/5 in her first start here with straight maidens back in September. 4-9
No. 2 Mon Mousse beds down in the sneaky barn of Quinn Howey and this 3yo gelding won his only dirt start and it was at this mile distance. No. 7 Qatar’s Pearl will find a good early pace to set up his last run.
We need to go four deep in this $30k maiden claimer for 2yo fillies using No. 1 Natalie’s Wonder who is dropping from straight maidens. No. 4 Dance Affair who has the sneaky connections of Kory Owens and Kayla Stra. No. 5 Froggy Fresh who ran good in his first try at this level and No. 9 Oleanderpolarbear is a first time starter for trainer John Sadler and he puts Van Dyke up for the ride. 1-4-5-9
This looks like a race that none of the runners are worth a bet. No. 2 Suicide Curves drops and gets blinkers on, it is her or PASS. 2
The one time Bejarano rode No. 5 Warren’s T. Baze he got the win. No. 7 Luckbox Sam has a big last work on the 6th at Santa Anita, he will be playing catch me if you can. 5-7
No. 7 Valdirone is 2-for-2 here and on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race. No. 8 Urban Hunter can run big on occasion and he will try and take the gate-to-wire. 7-8
THE GRADE I $350K STARLET
Some future stars came out for this race and we will use three that are exiting the BC Juvenile Filly last month. No. 3 Danette who is trained by Keith Desormeaux and ridden by his brother Kent was just 1-1/2 lengths behind the winner No. 6 Take Charge Brandi with No. 4 Feathered just one length behind Brandi.
Exacta box 3-4-6
No. 2 Princess Brooklyn is out of the dam D. J.’s Chocolate who has dropped 6 winners from her six starters. This 5yo mare gets the bug boy Brandon Boulanger who has popped with two big long shots here at the meet, one for this trainer. No. 7 Southern Owah gets a jockey switch and a break I the weights and looks the speed. 2-7
No. 1 Adios Pelota drops and gets a huge rider upgrade. No. 2 Sizzling Bel also drops and Kyle Frey gets back on. No. 6 Halo Indygo is the only first time starter and the price will be right. 1-2-6
No. 3 Hunted Guy ran good here last year but something happened and now he comes back for this $4k price but that last work says he is ok. No. 2 Anytime Magic continues his drop in class but looks the one to beat in here. 2-3
No. 3 Gray Madam gets her second start off the Quinn Howey claim, this is the money run. No. 6 Pata Blanca and No. 7 Highly Rated both exit the same race and will be part of the trifecta and super.
No. 8 The Wuggis ran a good race in her one try going this mile distance and finds little to beat today with Juan Hernandez getting back on board. 8
No. 3 Suances Dream is just sitting on the maiden breaker and today looks the day. No. 5 Of Thee I Sing will be the one to fear late he gets back to a sprint. 3-5
No. 2 Pressure Time just missed in his second try on this circuit, this 5 furlong distance could be the answer, we think so. 2
No. 1 Sarahline goes long in this her third start but she has burned some serious cash in her previous three starts. Trainer Phil D’Amato ships in No. 2 Sidepocket Run who gets off the grass, she may like it here. No. 3 Purple Rose was well bet in her one start on the Santa Anita grass and her trainer Paddy Gallagher comes here to win. 1-2-3
No. 3 Aalsmeer exits our HTW list, he hopped at the start in his last race and then had to come five wide to finish second. No. 5 Wildfire Kid is on a win every other race pattern and this is his win race. No. 9 Baltimore Boogie has been stuck in second but could break out today. 3-5-9
No. 6 Mining Fever gets a little drop in class and that could get him home on top today. 6
