LOS ALAMITOS TB
We will try and beat No. 2 Tulira Castle who has rattled off four straight wins but non here. We will use No. 3 Derby Glass off a dominating win at odds on and he ran second by a neck here the only time he was on this course. No. 5 Ike Walker is in top form and also ran second in his only try here. 3-5
$50k 2yo maiden claimers go 5-1/2 furlongs and we will go singling here using No. 6 Princes Kendra second off the layoff, she will find a good pace to make her late run. 6
$20k maiden fillies and mares go 5 furlongs, we will opt for two first time starters as the ones that have run just don’t inspire. No. 5 Rosiescruella is sent out by Jeff Mullins who has won with one of his three runners here and she finds little to beat as does No. 7 My Lady Lou Lou with the hot bug boy David Lopez.
$20k claimers go a flat mile, No. 3 Guessed Right gets her second start on this circuit and will now go her best distance a flat mile where she is 2 for 2. No. 4 Traiteuse has the turf to dirt angle and she owns a win on the dirt. No. 6 Can Can Babe is the speed off of that bullet last work. 3-4-6
Don’t like to key on the inside here at Los Al but No. 1 Blue Anchor never runs a bad race and won here back in September, he is in top form and we hope he takes back and gets outside and runs the down, we will single. 1
No. 1 Twirling Tiger will get a great rail trip with Pedroza on him, he will try and outrun No. 5 Mishegas who finished right behind him last time out. 1-5
Baffert sends out two runners in this 6 furlong sprint, No. 2 American Pride who losses Martin Garcia but gets Van Dyke in a rare ride for Baffert as Garcia opts for No. 8 Vegas Strip. Hollendorfer sends out No. 5 Seattle Serenade who won at first asking at even money. 2-5-8
