LOS ALAMITOS TB

Race 1

No. 5 Wildcat Sailor didn’t like the poly track at Del Mar, he broke his maiden at Santa Anita when coming off the pace, he catches a field loaded with early speed and will get the perfect trip to start the players pick five as our single. 5

Race 2

No. 3 Donji’s best race came at Santa Anita on the dirt going this 6 furlong distance at this level, he could wakeup today at a big price, No. 5 Whenudon’t Know is a Tommytown first-time starter for Miyadi who gets some of their good ones, this 2yo gelding is very live. No. 9 Slapshot Man actually won here back in September but had his number taken down, a repeat of that effort gets the win today. 3-5-9

Race 3

No. 2 Fonz exits our HTW list off a narrow loss at Del Mar last out by a nostril, No. 4 Rusty Road likes this course, he is the stablemate of the Fonz and the speed on the drop. 2-4

Race 4

The horse we like in here is No. 11 Anillo but he is stuck on the also list, if he gets in he is our play, the always dangerous Quinn Howey sends out No. 1 No Team Spirit with Van Dyke, the rail is a problem but he is a must use. 1-11

Race 5

In the last leg of the players pick five No. 2 Galehorn comes off a dominant maiden breaker and ran second here back in September, she is perfectly spotted, No. 8 Vegas Bound drops and will get a good trip from this post. 2-8

Race 6

No. 7 Whoyougonnacall has big early speed which will play well in this mile race, he gets his first start off the claim and the win, in which he battled tooth and nail the entire trip, he is a gamer. No. 2 Afleet in Time will be the one to fear late. 2-7

Race 7

The hot riding Kayla Stra gets on the big dropper No. 4 Copperopolis for trainer Marty Jones, she gets off the grass and finds little to beat, No. 7 Peppy Bolly also gets the big drop in class, she has a nice last work, No. 8 Lucky S.J. exits the same race as Peppy. No. 9 Mon Petite gets her first start off the Hollendorfer 40k claim, she is the speed on the outside. 4-7-8-9

Race 8

THE 200K KING GLORIOUS 

No. 3 Acceptance has won two straight and both have come on the dirt including his last win in the 200k Golden State Juvenile at Santa Anita, he is the one to beat, No. 4 Mischief Clem exits the same race and he finished third but will try and turn the tables. No. 6 Pulmarack woke up big time when moved to the dirt and could be this good. 3-4-6

Race 9

Brandon Boulanger has popped with two huge winners at the meet and he gets on No. 4 Indian Monkey, he will need to contend with some other speed in here especially No. 8 Takeit Tothe Limit who looks the one to catch. 4-8

Race 2

No. 1 Lumberman’s Arch ran an improved race when dropped to this level last out, No. 6 Luz Atticus gets Baze on the big drop in class, he will try and take him wire-to-wire. 1-6

Race 3

No. 1 Rathmoon can run big at any time and she has won four of her six starts on this course, No. 2 Koby Jo is her stablemate and exits the same race, we will try and upset this field and use both. 1-2
