Race 1

We begin the last week at Los Al with a horrible card and it is really bad, but let’s see if we can eke out a few winners. No. 2 Papa’s Paisley gets his first start off the Diodoro claim and he puts Alex Canchari back on and he won with this gelding one race back, he moves back to a sprint and looks best in here with this crew. 2

Win and place 2

Race 2

No. 1 Faith Proof has been the chalk in three straight races and won all three and it is a good sign that Faith Proof becomes claim proof in this race. No. 4 Rosewhitenblue won in her only start here and looks the main danger. 1-4

Race 3

This $15k claimer is as ugly as it gets, we will go three deep and hope for the best in the players pick five as we use No. 3 Luck Lasts who is in from Golden Gate and gets off the grass and back to a sprint. No. 4 End of Time a 1-for-22 6yo gelding who has some good early speed and No. 6 Mosso the likely favorite who is 1-for-16. 3-4-6

Race 4

We get uglier in this $8k claimer, No. 1 It’s Aine is wheeled back in just six days by trainer Mike Harrington. No. 6 Forbidden City comes here from the Gate in good form, she has been well bet in all her races and looks the one to beat. 1-6

Race 5

This race is controlled by the droppers as we get No. 3 Smart Ellis who gets the huge drop in class as he gets off the grass. No. 5 Odeon comes here from New York and will get his first taste off a fast dirt track. No. 6 Dreamy Kid is another dropper who will try the dirt once again. 3-5-6

Pick five

1st 2

2nd 1-4

3rd 3-4-6

4th 1-6

5th 3-5-6

Race 6

No. 4 Tough Sunday gets his second start, he hopped and steadied in his first but still made a strong late run to get the show dough, he is the key in this race. No. 5 Eight Spokes is one of three runners in here for trainer Mike Puype. He also sends out No. 8 Cheap O Charlie and No. 9 Shanty Irish. 4**-5-8-9

Key exacta and tri 4 with 5-8-9 and 5-8-9 with 4 with 5-8-9

Race 7

No. 2 Incredible Journey gets the hot riding Tyler Baze, look for a better effort today. No. 4 Gelila exits the same race and has hit the board in 3 of her 4 starts here. 2-4

Race 8

We get back to ugly in this $8k claimer going a mile. No. 3 Go Black Tie ran good here in his only start back in July and the drop to this level makes him a player. No. 5 Cole Cole could get brave if he can find the front end. 3-5
