Race 1

Just handicapping this card says to me this would be a good day to do some Christmas shopping, as it is just loaded with six horse fields before scratches. In here we get six runners and No. 4 Razorbill looks odds on first off the Mike Pender claim and drop off the claim, all we can do is single in the pick five and hope for the best or just pass. 4

Race 2

We get just six running in this straight maiden race with a purse of $45k, my my. No. 6 Wade will be another short price runner. He ran second here back in September when losing by a head at .90 cents on the dollar and lost next out at Santa Anita at .70 cents on the dollar. This 5yo has burned some serious cash but once again looks best, single or pass. 6

Race 3

We get 7 runners in this $20k maiden claimer but of the 7 runners only two have a shot at winning this 5 furlong sprint unless something goofy happens. No. 2 Xerxes drops and will be the speed. No. 5 Papa de Gatto also drops and ran a big race here back in July. 2-5

Race 4

We get only five runners (before scratches) in this mile race. No. 1 Day in the Sun likes this track and is the speed on the rail. No. 2 Anthonysgotgame has run two times, both good and was claimed both times, he makes his first start for Mark Glatt today and he will like this mile distance. No. 5 Dynamite Ride gets off the grass and will be making a late run at the speed. 1-2-5

Race 5

Just another 6 horse field, told you to go shopping. No. 2 King Pacal is a first time starter with some solid works and he meets very little. No. 4 American League drops from straight maidens and gets the hot bug boy David Lopez and puts the blinkers on, he also worked a bullet on the 4th. All systems are go.


Exacta box 2-4 and win 4

Race 6

We gets six runners traveling a flat mile, No. 2 Northern Iowa reared at the start in his last start to lose any chance he had, he had a nice win one race back. No. 3 Warren’s Wesley drops to a better level and ran a nice second at this level one race back. No. 6 Vartan also drops and will go much better today.


Race 7

Wow another six horse field, No. 3 Cartoonist is the speed and trained by the hot Northern Cal trainer Johnathan Wong. No. 6 Signature Cat also has big early speed and is in top form and has a great post of this 5-1/2 furlong race. 3-6

Race 8

Well we get 11 runners in this straight maiden race with a $45k purse for fillies and mares. No. 6 Game On At Midnight is a fist timer for Baffert, they paid $400k for this filly, she will come out running. No. 8 So Sweetitiz just missed here back in September and the move back to an outside post makes her dangerous. No. 11 Longstocking comes off the layoff and will be the one to fear late. 6-8-11

Exacta box 6-8-11


7th 3-6

8th 6-8-11
