SANTA ANITA PARK


PRE-SCRATCHES


4th: 66th Santa Barbara (G3), F&N-4+, 10f-T (P6, P3, DD)

2.5 turn turf stake lacks much pace definition with Changethechannel and Miss Serendipiity the ones with early lick. Stormy Lucy (now with Moger) and Customer Base (Proctor/Glen Hill) the class of the field and Drysdale's Topic (8-1) the interesting price consideration..

Most Likely: #7 Customer Base 5-2
Best Value: #8 Topic 8-1
Next Best: #3 Stormy Lucy 2-1
Exotics Use: #2 Miss Serendipity 7-2


5th: OC/N2X, 4+, 1m (P3)

Pacey Big Kick might be dangerous on front end but expect Cat Burglar stays close and has first run ahead of mid-pack stalking units Omega Star and Governor Charlie..

Most Likely: #3 Cat Burglar 2-1
Best Value: #7 Omega Star 8-1
Next Best: #6 Governor Charlie 6-5
Exotics Use: #5 Big Kick 5-1


6th: ALW/N1X, 4+, 6.5f-T (P4, P3)

Key to this downhill ALW is inside players Oliver's Tale and re-blinkered Cacau aswell as Cal-bred last out winner Major Truth. Oliver's Tale is speedy (ran within half of Points Offthebench in '13) and puts back-to-back starts together for first time in a year today. Hood produced career best try from Cacau 2 back and Almeida puts the hood back on for this.

Most Likely: #1 Oliver's Tale 7-2
Best Value: #8 Monument 9-2
Next Best: #5 Kochees 4-1
Exotics Use: #4 Hawkedon 5-1


7th: S/ALW, 3+, 6f (P3)

Tricky looking MCLM starter and I think you want a stranger. Romar Success missed entire 3yo season and returns in hands of savvy Powell off series of sharp drills. Has a rite to have developed past anything here. Smells like new money..

Best Value: #10 ROMAR SUCCESS 10-1
Next Best: #6 Remind Mee 9-2
Exotics Use: #9 Head South 6-1
Super Add: #8 Market Notes 12-1


8th: 47th San Simeon (G3), 4+, 6.5f-T (DD)

Fun edition of this. Pataky Kid (12-1) makes 4yo bow and may be perfect for this course..

Best Value: #2 Pataky Kid 12-1
Next Best: #8 Lakerville 2-1
Exotics Use: #5 Sweet Swap 5-2
Super Add: #3 Chiloquin 6-1


9th: MCLM/$20k, F&M-3+, 8.5f (Super Hi-5)

Most Likely: #5 A Little Luckier 5-2
Next Best: #3 Kid Rollins 3-1
Exotics Use: #8 Itsabeautifulday 4-1
Best Value: #4 Nonna Reese 5-1

AQUEDUCT


POST-SCRATCHES


5th: NY-ALW/N1X, 3+, 6.5f (P3, DD)

Here Comes Tommy SCR'D in sharp winter form and should sit excellent trip stalking up close from inside; Freddie G, OK anyway breaking MDN in Feb., can improve on barn switch and cutting back 300 yards; Ogremeister logical but outposted and may not press as much removing hood; Summer Place to Be makes 3yo debut here and would be competitive or more with natural improvement from juvy to soph..

Best Value: #8 Freddie G 15-1 3rd
Next Best: #4 Wild Finish 7-2 7th
Exotics Use: #7 Summer Place to Be 5-1 2nd
Super Add: #10 Ogermeister 2-1 5th


6th: OC/N1X, 3+, 1m (P3, DD)

Well matched group with what looks to be an honest pace. 4yo Catron has missed chunks of time but reasonable as fave if right; Hard-hitting 7yo Golden Itiz, now Valente/Jacobson, familiar to West Coast players as Siegel Family campaigner and a good fit at square price..

Most Likely: #11 Catron 2-1 4th
Best Value: #12 Golden Itiz 15-1 2nd
Next Best: #2 Snake Pit 6-1 9th
Exotics Use: #5 Sliver and Onions 6-1 5th
Super Add: #7 Ithastobegeorge 30-1 6th


7th: NY-ALW/N1X, 3+, 1m (P6, P3, DD)

It may have been entirely slop-aided, but effort by Goodtolook two back would blitz this group; Pat Kelly runs them into shape and winter-campaigned Testosterone has a development pattern that can produce a forward move at a big price. Curious assembly and I think it will behoove to try some odd inclusions..

Most Likely: #3 Goodtolook 7-2 7th
Best Value: #8 Testosterone 15-1 4th
Next Best: #10 Sea to Sky 5-1 WON ($10.00)
Exotics Use: #6 Onecatschance 30-1 2nd


8th: 54th Bay Shore (G3), 3yo, 7f (P4, P3, DD)

Very tricky read on this sophomore sprint standard with 'cheap' speed types (Oliver Zip, Loki's Vengeance, Favorite Tale) lining up against 'classy' stakes experienced turnbacks (Financial Mogul, Coup de Grace, Kobe's Back). ALW winners Charleymillionaire & The Admiral add to the intrigue in graded black type debuts. Jay Privman warned ATR listeners early on that Kobe's Back would be a disaster going long, but he's been excellent at the specialty seven-eighths trip. Sadler's record out of town dreadful, but style of trip/effort from San Vincente would be highly effective here. Financial Mogul another who made it clear he wants one turn middle distance and price square. Oliver Zip has been too good this winter not to respect at 10-1. I think Coup de Grace is mediocre but barn excels at the cut back and with time..

Most Likely: #8 Kobe's Back 2-1 3rd
Best Value: #3 Financial Mogul 8-1 6th
Next Best: #2 Oliver Zip 10-1 2nd
Exotics Use: #4 Coup de Grace 4-1 WON ($16.20)


9th: 119th Gazelle (G2), 3yo-F, 9f (P4, P3, DD)

Hard to see how My Miss Sophia doesn't get away with murder on the front end..

Most Likely: #4 My Miss Sophia 9-5 WON ($3.60)
Best Value: #6 Bird Maker 8-1 5th
Next Best: #3 Sweet Reason 8-5 3rd
Exotics Use: #2 Got Lucky 3-1 2nd


10th: 90th Wood Memorial (G1), 3yo, 9f (P3, DD)

Unabashedly rooting for Social Inclusion and 85yo Manny Azpurua but an already demanding assignment came up with added burden off difficult post. There's no shortage of pace-interested parties to go with him here too including Schivarelli, Uncle Sigh and possibly Kristo. Undefeated Samraat has already established the ability to sit behind leaders and he and 10-1 Harpoon figure to enjoy garden spot voyages..

Most Likely: #8 Samraat 7-2 2nd
Best Value: #4 Harpoon 8-1 9th
Next Best: #10 Uncle Sigh 5-1 5th
Exotics Use: #11 Social Inclusion 2-1 3rd


11th: 114th Carter H. (G1), 3+, 7f (DD)

Outstanding co-feature with 2 ML faves that are no better than the next 3 or even 4 choices. Strapping Groom figures to get an ideal position behind the race's lone true speed in Dad'z Caps. Central Banker and Clearly Now make 4yo debuts and are both an appealing 5-1..

Most Likely: #5 Strapping Groom 4-1 5th
Next Best: #1 Central Banker 5-1 6th
Best Value: #2 Clearly Now 5-1 3rd
Exotics Use: #6 Sahara Sky 2-1 2nd

RESULTS 4/3  

Some days your best play is no play at all. Had started to write up Wednesday's Aqueduct action, but was struggling with decisions and scuttled the tabs. That turned out to be fortuitous because a strong bias carried some improbable horses to the winner's circle including 60-1 Little Miss Lupe who tripped a rare 'all' payoff in the 6th-8th Pick 3. $29K carryover into Thursday. Monitor track status early on in the 3 sprints that begin the day.


AQUEDUCT


POST-SCRATCHES


4th: NY-MCLM/$16k, 3+, 6f (P6, P3, DD)

Wood On the Fire the speed of the speed and horse to beat but Englehart turnback Kaepernick drops to the bottom and can stalk from down inside. Morley's Maggie's Lad returns for 3yo debut and won't have to be special to succeed here..

Most Likely: #1 Wood On the Fire 8-5 3rd
Best Value: #3 Kaepernick 5-1 7th
Next Best: #4 Maggie's Lad 4-1 WON ($6.50)
Exotics Use: #5 Bob and Jim 7-2 4th


5th: CLM, 4+, 1m (G/S, P3, DD)

This is a very solid, consistent group for $12.5k. Sovereign Default is clearly the one but Rice isn't always aggressive and there are some players to the the outside that may apply pressure or try to grab control. If favorite gets out easy and track continues to be glib, it's a parade. But if the pace happens to get contested, this will become a scramble where no one is impossible..

Most Likely: #1 Sovereign Default 2-1 WON ($5.00)
Next Best: #3 Washington's Rules 5-2 5th
Best Value: #4 Junior Officer 15-1 7th
Exotics Use: #5 Southbeachsandy 4-1 3rd

RESULTS 3/28 

Breen (Lady Paradime), Sciacca (Classic R and B) and Contessa (Keen On Green) upsetters sent AQU carryover careening into Friday's slate. At SA, I leaned heavily on Valdirone in the 6th, but it was the other long time layoff candidate Parliamentarian that buzzsawed the field and left the play settling for $101 consolation. Hope everyone did OK. Mammoth Saturday pending!

Heck of a nice group and it's nice to see Coffee Clique (Lynch), Lily the Pink (Proctor), Angegreen (Mettee) & Orion Moon (Clement) back in action with seasonal debuts. Key to how this unfolds is in Castellano's hands with call on Street Gem and engaging She's Spooky. Dene Court a pace consideration normally, but will almost certainly be less aggressive under Leparoux. Lily the Pink working along like metronome; Can sit trip and pounce..

RESULTS 3/21 

$552k double carryover Friday at Santa Anita as only one favorite (7th-Rangi) came through in the challenging sextet. I was able to identify the 3 biggest prices in the P6 as Best Value players Thursday ($20.40 Our Flitter Ball; $16.40 An Unusual Group; $20.60 Spirit Rules), but didn't have them weighted as needed to generate multi-race success. Plus, unlike Brad Free, I didn't like Rangi! Friday sequence doesn't feel immediately easier either, but let's give it a go..

When Pletcher barn opts for spot like this with big debut winner, as opposed to reaching for black type, it sometimes augers a regression. Equally impressive first ask winner Killaday is the threat and there's potential for the pair to hook up early and duel.

RESULTS 3/15 

Enjoyed a nearly perfect afternoon at Gulfstream Friday running the table with 'A' selections up to the nightcap when 'B' player Moonwalker overwhelmed the turf sprint finale. Happily settled for $3,500+ in P5 & P4 success, but could not close out the pesky Rainbow 6 that had potential to make the day particularly special with an additional 5 figure score. Was certainly the beneficiary of the stewards' stand surviving 2 inquiries, being put up in a third and avoiding a possible look-see in the first leg when $22 Night Song got the day off to a roaring start.

One thing that becomes apparent from the Rainbow 6 flirtation is that the quality payouts for very modest investment are available if you are at ease with the nature of the wager. The sequence paid nearly $17k Friday and it would not have taken too much tinkering with the simple $38.40 play to bring it home. And obviously, a larger budget play had high potential to hit. But as I've discussed on ATR, it's an action bet and $40 is about what I'm willing to throw at the daily equine lotto the wager becomes when the pool is in the $500k range on a daily basis. Some people are playing for $20, some for $200, some for $2,000.

 After the initial trepidation about the appropriateness of playing it at all other than on the distribution day, it's become clear that you get exactly the amount of 'action' you're looking for if it's only a superfluous portion of your bankroll. It's not a 'smart' bet, but it's fun. Hope everyone did great yesterday and got something from the sequence if they were playing along.

#4 Don't Tell Sophia (5-2) - She continues rolling and just missed last year in the event. 3RD

R11 - MSW 60k

#11 Not My Tap (6-1) - Ran in spurts in latest and two turns should be well within her scope.
#9 Ghost Locket (3-1) - Solid in both career starts and capable of waking up with blinkers on and stretch out. 2ND
#10 Haveyougoneaway (5-1) - Nice run on debut after trouble leaving the gate. Deserves a serious look. WON $10.80

RESULTS 3/13 

Ticket-building efforts were sloppy Wednesday but still was able to eke out some profit with P4 and consos boosting returns. Interesting to note what Mike Welsch pointed out Tuesday regarding power of favorites and likely types as the 'prime' portion of the Gulfstream meet starts to draw toward a close. Hope everyone did well..

 Highlight Wednesday was obviously the dominant performance of Ron Sanchez' Social Inclusion over Honor Code. Andy Beyer quickly calculated a 111 figure for the track record performance, the biggest number ever for a non-stake route at GP. As noted Wednesday, it was indeed Rontos Racing that was eager to make the ALW go as signaled by their entering of Specialnightaction and their Pioneerof the Nile colt will most be getting a Derby point audition next out. With the FL Derby just 17 days away however, Manny Azpurua and Sanchez may have to opt for a trip out of town April 5th (Wood Memorial) or 12th (Arkansas Derby).

RESULTS 3/12 

Took heartbreaker photo beat in AQU 8th Monday costing P6 hit that was worth $3,000+. Looking back, ticket structure allowed either Rontos Code or Ruthless Alley to win, but not both. Pair of sextet consos and chalky P4 defrayed multi expenses and other bingos made day pleasant enough. Hope everyone did well. Honor Code returns in GP 8th this afternoon which should be interesting. Publisher's Clearinghouse Carryover now $47,000,000.. Just kidding. It's close to $3MM, but no one is playing for that anyway..

5th: CLM/N2L, 4+, 7.5f-T/0' (Rainbow P6, P3, DD)

Highly likely Marine the first of 5 on the afternoon for Rontos Racing, Manny & Leo Azpurua who will have a special day if able upend Honor Code in the feature with emergent Social Inclusion. El Gran Joyful has a full sister who has 2 of her 3 wins on turf. If fit and ready, has chance to wire in first race as a 4yo..

Most Likely: #4 Marine 3-1 3rd

Exotics Use: #1 Ginger Goose 5-2 WON ($4.60)


6th: OC/N2X, 4+, 6f (P5, P3, DD)

A lot of speed lined up shoulder-to-shoulder with Evolution, Neno and venerable Guam Typhoon. Hard to believe there isn't room for stalker-closer success. Confrontation, the least known undefeated horse in America, is back as a 4yo for Tagg and may pick up where he left off. Helooksthepart from capable Jimmy DiVito may sit ideal trip. Rontos-Azpurua runner #2 Border Song (10-1) a mystery horse on main track cutting back while moving off lawn. Posted :46.1 bullet of 86 on March 1 for this. Lezcano a good fit for rally..

Most Likely: #2 Confrontation 5-2 4th
Best Value: #4 Border Song 10-1 2nd

Exotics Use: #3 Helooksthepart 8-1 5th


7th: CLM/N3L, 4+, 7.5f-T/0' (P4, P3, DD)

Has to work out a trip from the #9 hole, but Mutasadder drops to level of last win.. always an angle worth noting. Plenty of parties interested in the lead here..

8th: Cond/ALW, 3yo, 8.5f (P3, DD)

Was able to snare Social Inclusion in Fountain undercard debut, but note that inside was place to be that Saturday. As noted by Mike Welsch on ATR Tuesday, rail may have been deep and tiring over the weekend, so today's inside trip for the Pioneerof the Nile colt may be quite different and he has to negotiate two turns for the first time as well. Crafted for route and adds Lasix today too. Rontos has already rebuffed purchase offers for Social Inclusion and likely added Specialnightaction to the entries to make sure this race went; Whether they expected Honor Code in the field is a different question. Honor Code has had some issues getting ready for 3yo unveiling, but seems to be into a steady beat now. Has class edge coming in but doesn't have to win by any means. The value here is Kaplan's We're All Set who has kept good company..

Most Likely: #1 Social Inclusion 3-1 WON ($4.80)
Next Best: #4 Honor Code 3-5 2nd
Best Value: #2 We're All Set 5-1 3rd


9th: MCLM/$75k, 3yo-F, 7.5f-T/0' (DD)

Ugly bunch. Late Night Artist a half to Mr. Palmer. You may need to rely on Chad Brown and Street Boss' 25% 'first turf' stats with Bartiromo. Dangerous race..

Don't know how trustworthy Rontos Code is on front end and note blinkers come OFF. Got the Moves is making first start out of the Jacobson barn.

PRE-SCRATCHES


11th: 34th Tampa Bay Derby (G2), 3yo, 8.5f (DD)

Curious assembly of somewhat talented colts and geldings and a race that is crying out for an alternative view. ML faves Surfing U S A (3-1), Conquest Titan (7-2) and Vinceremos (4-1) are all 'OK', but how much more imposing are they versus the next set of players on the line, Cousin Stephen (9-2), Matador (8-1) or Hy Kodiak Warrior/East Hall (10-1)? As always, pace will be decisive factor here and it sure feels like it's liable to be pretty hot. Comebackers Tuscan Getaway and Coltimus Prime will be fresh and part of the pressure with both Pletchers and you can expect Cousin Stephen and Ring Weekend to be stalking the front foursome. Matador, Conquest Titan, Kodiak and East Hall comprise the back end and will all be looking for a way through in the late stages. Fun betting race and I want value..

Best Value: #3 Matador 8-1: Improved 1st dirt in Davis; Should drift up from 8-1.. 5th

7th: OC/N1X, 3yo-F, 5f-T/108' (P4, P3, DD)

Sweet Emma Rose (2-1) certainly the horse to beat, but Henny Jenny -- half to Dorf's excellent MSW Zeewat that goes Sat. in the San Carlos -- is 20-1 and will have pace to chase. Remember that rain yesterday should have leveled the GP playing field. Big shot if turf to her liking and there's no reason it shouldn't be..

Mott sending Edge of Midnight to Tampa for debut tells you a lot and now he drops, turfs and adds Lasix. Plenty of turf success for offspring of the dam. Looking for a win and to get claimed. Skylar Blue's January 15 race would impact this. On a pedigree note, Casselberry drops, turfs and stretches out for Catalano. He is out of Whirl On (Elusive Quality), the last foal of Dancing Mahmoud who dropped the terrific $2MM winner Guided Tour (Hansel). Long before Wise Dan, Guided Tour was Morton Fink's first 'big' horse. Trey Abbott has top/bottom turf bred Shorefellow (Lewis Michael/Dynaformer dam) adding Lasix and blinkers. Duke of Ritchie drops and may be edging forward..

Most Likely: #1 Edge of Midnight 5-1 7th

RESULTS 2/22

Have enjoyed a delightful week in Florida in advance of today's rather outrageous Gulfstream card. Race after race offers wide open affairs that should be tremendously entertaining and ideally, rewarding. Fair Grounds too has an attractive slate. The 3yo stakes at both venues will move us further along towards Classics Season and let's hope all events are incident free and give all players a fair chance. Hope you enjoyed ATR's FOY Week coverage from Florida. Let's have a great weekend!

Am sure McGaughey would love to win today with Top Billing, but this is just one of the battles with a much bigger war to come. Post hinders despite style. General a Rod missed Holy Bull with a hiccup, but a return to level of GP Derby win 1/1 takes this. Style suits race flow. Commissioner merits respect. I want to get prices involved and Our Caravan a fit with likely improvement after post-debut regression. Dilger makes few wrong moves. With plenty of people cooing over GP Derby top pair (General a Rod/Wildcat Red), why no love for steady improver East Hall who was 3 lengths behind them? Most experienced horse in field an ideal candidate for bottom of exotics at price high above morning line..

Even without Larry Jones candidates Cassat & Divine Beauty, this is a nice group. Streaming may get away with easy early lead and simply wire. Got Lucky has done little wrong in her 3 starts but unsure who she's mixed it up with and will need to speed it up here. Big fuss being made over jump up effort of Shanon Nicole when rained off turf to dirt last time. Do we really think a guy like Mike Maker didn't know which surface she belonged on from the start of her career and she was a dirt killer all along? Untapable was part of the tough situation in the BC Juvy Filly race and appears a major player in her 3yo bow. Ria Antonia makes her initial 3yo start and hasn't had perfect training schedule thanks to the weather, but gets clever rider switch to Talamo and offers potential value at 9-2..

Looks as if half of this field is eligible for laurels. Under-respected Vicar's in Trouble will have to contend with inside speeds Albano, Rise Up and Vigorish which appears to assure at least an honest pace onto the backstretch. Second flight players (Hoppertunity, Gold Hawk, Commanding Curve) will have first run on the leaders while off pace dangers Intense Holiday and Emmett Park come into the picture late. Regarding Emmett Park, trainer Bob Pincins and his wife run a very sharp micro outfit that has a handful of horses in training off and on that win at a stunning rate. This Bob and John gelding is 2 for 2 on Poly and may jump forward in his dirt debut. He is well within range of any of the top contenders and gets oval savvy Jim Graham. Do not leave off your exotic plays as he will be forgotten from the #15 and lost on the board..

R6 - OC 75k/N1X - Terrific race that should produce starters in the G1 Florida Derby next month.

#3 Matterhorn (6-1) - Liked everything from his debut and have been looking forward to his return. Stalk an pounce trip.
#8 Tonalist (3-1) - Took care of big field at 9F in maiden local score. Obvious contender. 2ND
#6 Constitution (5-2) - Sharp debut at 7F and looks to have the ability to route. WON $6.60
#10 Mexicoma (5-1) - Will most likely take back and make a big run late. Post and short stretch are against him. 3RD

R7 - OC 62k/N2X (Turf 8.5F)

#5 Calm Pacific (3-1) - Sharp connections have another nice turf horse that is lightly raced. 4TH
#2 Hey Leroy (20-1) - Too consistent right now to ignore at a huge price. 2ND
#4 Favor Factor (15-1) - Has won off a layoff and draws well for his stalking style.
#8 Bi Flash (15-1) - Must be considered to steal this with Paco Lopez

R8 - MSW 47k (Turf 8.5F)

#14 Palace Gate (6-1) - Exits a nice race and despite the parking lot draw, I'm leaning that lawn will be his game. 2ND
#2 Mill Creek (12-1) - I look for Johnny V to take advantage up front of a paceless race.

Press PK3 - 3 8 / 3 / 2 14 = $4

R9 - G2 Davona Dale

#6 Penwith (4-1) - She might be forgotten by the two Pletcher fillies, but she's improving and the barn is lethal when adding lasix. 4TH
#3 Onlyforyou (2-1) - Brings undefeated record and WILL be the one to catch going into the short stretch. WON $4.20
#8 Stopchargingmaria (9-5) - Tricky read on return especially at a low price. Will use cautiously.
#5 House Rules (10-1) - Finally got it together in last and could add value underneath here. 2ND

R10 - G3 Canadian Turf (Turf 8F)

#5 Reload (8-1) - Extremely dangerous right back on the front end. WON $11.60
#2 Unbridled Ocean (10-1) - Made a huge late rally against a salty field earlier in the month. 4TH
#1 Mr. Online (3-1) - Expect him to keep Reload busy on the front as he's going for 4 in row. 2ND
#3 Rydilliuc (6-1) - Nice string of works for return and barn shows confidence.

R11 - G2 Fountain of Youth

#5 General Rod (5-1) - Beat a tough customer in the GP Derby (#4 Wildcat Red) and no reason to think he can't handle two turns from an ideal post position. 2ND
#12 Top Biling (7-2) - Has displayed some serious talent, but has to overcome tough draw. If Rosario is able to save some ground going into the 1st turn, watch out because he's a stone cold runner. 3RD
#1 Commissioner (3-1) - Has been freshened up after running his eyeballs out to hold off Top Biling to start the year. Should only get better with time and longer distances.
#4 Wildcat Red (6-1) - Gutsy performer will give you everything has got. This distance is within his scope. WON $11.00

PK4 - 2 7 14 / 3 6 8 / 1 2 3 5 / 1 5 12 = $54 for $.40

R11 - G2 Risen Star

#9 Intense Holiday (8-1) - Battle tested and is ready for a peak performance 2nd off the bench. The long stretch should be to his advantage. Breakout performance possibility. WON $12.00
#6 Gold Hawk (8-1) - Disappointed as the chalk in the G3 Lecomte, but is capable of rebounding in a big way.
#8 Hoppertunity (8-1) - Baffert feels okay throwing him right into graded company off maiden win. Tactical speed helps his chances. 4TH

RESULTS 2/10

After some arduous efforts at Gulfstream earlier, put some things together late in the day at Santa Anita to get out. Late P4 ($110) and 5/6 conso ($160) came our way, but it was 20-1 value player Si Sage that boosted the afternoon best as the sandwich cream with the obvious faves in the $375 San Marcos triple. Hope everyone did OK. Sunday bigger than usual with Jockey Club Tour on Fox kicking off with the Donn and an $83k P6 carryover at Aqueduct.

GUS ALONSO'S SUNDAY RESULTS

I've had this date marked on the calendar for some time. Actually I had February 8, 2013, before the date was changed to accommodate a series of races that will be televised by Fox Sports throughout the year, which includes Derby Trail's very own Andy Serling. The card is a mix bag, but has potential for some lucrative scores. Headed to the track at noon to join a big group for family and friends for our annually event. Hope everyone enjoys the day at the track or coverage on Fox Sports.

Gulfstream Park POST SCRATCHES - FAST / FIRM


R1 - Clm 30k B

#1 Perfect Praise (5-1) - Freshened up and barn excels Turf to Dirt.
#8 Helluva Hunch (3-1) - Both wins came at this distance and Saez will probably be closer this time. 3RD
#5 Money for Memories (5-2) - Expecting Paco to take it to them when the gates open.
#4 Dreamlicious (5-1) - She's faced better and the cut back makes sense. 4TH

R2 - OC 62k/N2X Solid group to start the early Pick 4

#2 Dewey Square (5-1) - Working well for return with new barn. Goes right the the lead early. 3RD
#5 On the Loose Again (2-1) - Too consistent at this time to ignore.
#3 Majestic Cause (3-1) - Not sure if longer is better, but fits off recent form. 2ND
#1 Pick of the Litter (4-1) - Would benefit if some type of speed duel develops. WON $6.20

R3 - Clm 30k N3L (Turf 8.5F)

#6 Hothersal (5-2) -Should be sitting in a perfect stalking position throughout. WON $3.80
#7 Dysprosium (5-1) - Logical, but distance is a legit question. 3RD
#8 Eternal Ruler (Ire) (3-1) - Expecting a late rally from this grey. 2ND
#3 Mutasadder (8-1) - Has turned it around since landing on this barn.

R4 - G3 Hurricane Bertie

#1 Groupie Doll (6-5) - Champ takes her picture in her swan song. WON $2.80
#4 Distortion (10-1) - Benefits from projected hot pace.
#6 Heart Stealer (3-1) - Could have first run on champ.
#2 Jamaican Smoke (6-1) - Speedster will probably hang on for a minor slice. 4TH

R5 - MSW 47k

#8 Gratitude (4-1) - Looks ready for barn with the midas touch. 4TH
#7 Creative Spirit (5-2) - Should be stronger in 2nd start after showing speed last month.
#2 My Miss Sophia (3-1) - Solid string of works for high % debut barn (Pletcher). 2ND
#5 Jenny's Rocket (5-1) - Might of tipped her hand in latest workout and Castellano signs up. 3RD

PK4 -1 2 3 5 6 / 3 6 7 8 / 1 / 2 5 7 8 = $40 for $.50

R6 - OC 25k/N1X (Turf 5F)

#4 Allaboutcaroline (6-1) - Catches insane pace and flies by them late with the Frenchman. 2ND
#6 Kiss Me Lola (5-1) - Looks to sit the ideal stalk and pounce trip.
#9 Warmhearted Windy (20-1) - Tough assignment, but that maiden score was strong.

R7 - MSW 47k

#2 Five Star Dixie (12-1) - Probably will sit back and make a late run.
#7 Successful Luck (3-1) - Barn can pop with a 1ster and it doesn't hurt that her half sister is Blind Luck. $10.20
#5 Tapitinsilver (12-1) - Could offer some nice value underneath.

R8 - MSW 47k (Turf 8.5F)

#3 March Reward (8-1) - BEST BET Draws well and might get lost on the board. He was less than 4-1 versus a few of these and lost ground from the 11 post. Today he draws inside of those rivals and turns the tables. 3RD
#8 Leader Avenue (3-1) - Understandably came up a bit short in return and improvement is expected. $8.00
#7 Papy (4-1) - No reason to think he won't take a step forward here off decent debut.
#11 Market Outlook (6-1) - The only negative is the post. Big chance for top connections. 2ND

R9 -MSW 47k (Turf 9F) Talk about a head scratcher to start the late Pick 4 sequence. Horseplayers could get a clue from the toteboard especially from the two well meant debuters.

#3 Salonsun (Ger) (20-1) - Four works since debut in December where she ran in spots and draws much better for a savvy conditioner in a wide open race. I'll take a swing.
#6 Seeking Her Glory (3-1) - She's been close, but too risky to trust at a short price. Pletcher 2nd time off the bench remains lethal. WON $5.60
#7 Sward (6-1) - Mott debuter would not be a surprise and her half brother Lea is upset minded in the feature today.
#10 Closer to You (6-1) - Has stepped it up in last two works and Clement has success at first asking.

R10 - Clm 30k N2L (Turf 8.5F)

#10 Sapphire Blue (4-1) - Possibly takes control early and never looks back. Maker successful 2nd off the bench. WON $6.60
#1 Very Playful (6-1) - Takes advantage of inside draw, Rosario sticks, and 1 of 2 that have a win on this course.
#3 Tie Dye (3-1) - Sharp return at this level and is definitely in the mix again. 3RD
#11 Almost an Angel (5-1) - Dangerous on big drop and workouts are above average for successful layoff barn. 4TH

R11 - GP Turf Handicap (Turf 9F)

#5 Summer Front (5-2) - Gobbled them up with a serious turn of foot despite chasing pedestrian type pace in latest. Looks ready for Grade 1 glory.
#8 Boisterous (6-1) - Makes 1st start for the Pletcher barn and the last two works might indicate he's ready to strut his class.
#2 Tetradrachm (3-1) - Expect him to have things his way on the front again before others attempt to mow him down late. 4TH
#7 Imagining (6-1) - Will probably get first run on the leader, but must hold off some serious runners late. 2ND

R12 - G1 Donn Handicap

#1 Uncaptured (10-1) - Has flashed some talent and a knack for winning, but he's never faced a group like this.
#2 Will Take Charge (9-5) - 3yr old champ finished 2013 with a flurry and the only thing not to like is the price.
#3 Revolutionary (5-1) - Took care of business in prep for this and earns extra points when 2nd place finisher Falling Sky almost set a track record yesterday earning a 104 BSF. Tough assignment nonetheless.
#4 Neck 'n Neck (20-1) - Tough spot to imagine his first local win here. Possible minor award, not out of the question.
#5 River Seven (4-1) - Has the look of the now horse after super performance in most recent. Looks to be in good stalking position throughout and top choice will have to earn it to get by.
#6 Romansh (6-1) - Made short work of G3 company in New York and barn has made all the right moves.
#7 Viramundo (15-1) - Has improved since the swith to the Wolfson barn and could offer some serious value at the bottom of exotics.
#8 Lea (10-1) - Passed his dry dirt assignment with flying colors and has definite upset potential here.
#9 Bourbon Courage (10-1) - Consistent sort was handled by River Seven in latest and would need to step it up.
#10 Macho Bull (30-1) - Sometimes these Macho Uno horses come up big on the biggest stage, but hard to imagine anything but an up the track finish.
#11 Joshua's Comprise (30-1) - Picked up a nice check in most recent after clunking up behind Mucho Macho Man. These field is much deeper.

Selections

#5 River Seven (4-1)

RESULTS 2/8

Glad I came back for another quad pass at Santa Anita Friday as three straightforward events and the open finale produced a nice 5-1 return. Focusing on the top 2 candidates in the 5th-7th (Friendswith K Mill, Fury Kapcori, Magic Spot) made getting to the more open nightcap easy. In a bad maiden race where the faves looked utterly beatable, leaning on 12-1 ML second timer Dream Baby as a salient alternative tripped the $305 P4 off a $16.40 win mutuel. The result helped make up for the agonizing Sagebrush Queen beat Thursday. Hope everyone did well. Great weekend on tap!


GULFSTREAM PARK


POST-SCRATCHES


6th: OC/N1X, 3yo-F, 8.5f-T/96' (P3, DD)

Race lies outside the big multi-race sequences and as such offers a great opportunity to take shots. Ignore stuttered start of Morethanawarning (20-1) in seasonal debut and take chance she's sharper today. Closers excel with rails out where they
are for this and Garcia suits her off pace style..

Wildly deep 2 turn opportunity for graduation of highly pedigreed sophomores including Slip By (Slews Final Answer), Bag of Plenty (Fortify), Special Agent (Dunkirk), Legend (Ol Donyo), Grand Strand (Barcola), Goodnewsisnonews (Fly Down), Moon Gun (Meistersigner)..

9th: OC/N2X, F&M-4+, 1m-T/24' (P4, P3, DD)

Not sure there's enough pace here to set Quay & Rosario up for the rally, but it's worth 10-1 to build around them. Motion/Strawbridge favorite Kitten's Point (3-1) has been away since last spring (Ashland, 3rd) and may need one. Interesting breeding note to make here as Farish/Lanes End offer heritage display via Profetiza, a daughter of Private Gift (Unbridled). In the 7th, you saw Special Agent who is out of Kentucky Oaks/Mother Goose winner Secret Status (A. P. Indy). Private Gift and Secret Status are sisters who dropped from G1 placed Private Status (Alydar)..

Next Best: #1 English Class 4-1 4th
Exotics Use: #7 Profetiza 12-1 3rd

10th: 70th Suwannee River (G3), F&M-3+, 9f-T/96' (P3, DD)

More so than usual this year, in the wake of Peter O'Toole's passing, this event makes me think of 'My Favorite Year', Alan Swann and the impossibly hysterical Brooklyn dinner scene: "Ma, he's an actor, not a river"..

Most Likely: #5 Abaco 5-2 3rd

Despite a big cast, this sprint is not speed-laden. Is Singanothersong (5-1) as good at 7f as he has been at 6f? He may be isolated in front. Using many here in the multis..

RESULTS 2/7 

Modest win Thursday in SA P4, but opportunity was there for it to be much better if Sagebrush Queen holds on in the 7th. As discussed with Rich Eng, the Gutierrez trainee was attractive turning back while going turf to dirt in a short field with some pace in it. Had no idea going in that the filly would be a gaudy 15-1 and I made a sizable win bet. She looked good striking the front 75 yards out, but could not stop Bejarano and 2nd choice Always a Chance. Ugh..

 The late decision off-turf SCR of Kozani left the P4 play with favorite Melatonin and the Bonde charge ran away from the field in his 5th start (first on dirt) to return $63 on the $49 quad plays. A Sagebrush Queen victory in the 7th ups that pay day towards $300. What are you gonna do? Play Friday's P4! Hope everyone did well... Big weekend of action ahead.

POST-SCRATCHES


6th: CLM/N2L, 4+, 7.5f-T/36' (P5, P3, DD)

Took a long time for Dreamalot to break maiden and as a late runner, he needs clean trips to succeed. Desormeaux got one 2 back and then found problem after problem last time. Hess dips the 6yo NY-bred to bottom and there should be enough pace to set 5-1 Bernardini gelding up for his run. Have no idea about Edwin Feurtado and his story, but if Kimmel's Coexist is close to ready, he should be competitive here..

7th: MCLM/$16k, 4+, 8.5f-T/96' (P4, P3, DD)

Utter head-scratcher here with principal players Underestimate Me (3-1) and Magnificent Moon (8-1) returning at bottom level from 13 and 19 month absences. Race is so inscrutable that consistent Rockitude (10-1) is a consideration despite 0-for-2013 Sharon McGlinchey (48 starts). An amazing inclusion in the lineup is Profound, the Street Cry-Hollywood Wildcat colt originally bought by Ben Leon for $925k at KEE Sept '11. After one start and a layup, Leon moved the half brother of War Chant to Eddie Plesa and the Plesas now own him. Claim him for $16k and start your own breeding operation with him..

One of the most under-appreciated races in the sport when talking about longevity and stars given wins in it by the likes of Aristides (1875), Hanover (1887), Colin (1908), Man o'War (1920), Count Fleet (1943), Dr. Fager (1967) and more over the years. The Withers has been run at almost all the city tracks in NY with stops at Jerome Park (1874-89), Morris Park (1890-1904) Jamaica (1956) and Belmont (1984-96) before settling in at Aqueduct. While respecting Uncle Sigh and Samraat's speed and success thus far, I'm in the camp with ATR visitors Serling, Tammaro and Beer that Classic Giacnroll (5-1) is the right horse in the right place at the right price..

There's potential for a collapse in here if the speeds and pressers all amass. Third choice Verbosity drops in for Hushion and should get an ideal trip at the front of the second flight. Toss Joe Parker's Marquet Rebel (30-1) SCR'D in to your exotics mix under the meltdown concept as he turns back from the route and adds 7# bug Jonathon Zayas who has 15 3rd's (20%) on the big price horses Jorge Velasquez has been booking for him..

Decision to run Vinceremos here instead of Hutcheson significant, because unless Harpoon or blinkers-on Asserting Bear engage him, he'll be on a loose lead. Desormeaux flies to TAM to stick with Noble Cornerstone and Cousin Stephen deserves another chance after tiring late off layoff in the Commissioner-Top Billing race. School on a Hill (12-1) from ownership that won this last year with Falling Sky and has potential here making first dirt start. Sire Student Council, himself by Kingmambo, gets horses that are winning at 16% on main track and dam My Meggie Meg (French Deputy) was a fast dirt sprinter that won a minor stake in an injury-shortened career..

Odd assembly and presence of Master Cip a wild card given likelihood of him running off to an isolated lead. Remember that this turf course remains kind to unencumbered front end types as evidenced again last night when Zia Zia Zia was able to take them wire to wire in the downhill 7th.

RESULTS 1/25

Hard to be disappointed with the strong day Thursday at Santa Anita, but also know that a big pay day was well within reach and was missed. The P6 paid $75k to 13 players, at least 2 of which utilized the analysis that offered $29 Awesome Prospect as a major upset candidate in the middle of the sequence. I settled for the $544 5 of 6 conso and $1,488 on the P4 as my own P6 ticket had 3 "A's", 2 "B's" and Only the Gold as a fateful "C". To hit Thursday, the investment had to be closer to $250 or more fortuitous adjustment in the A-B-C priorities. Still, it was a swell afternoon and I'm delighted for the large group of people that appear to have benefitted from the write-up or discussions with Brad Free and Rich Eng on ATR.

Most of all, finding Leo Powell's Awesome Prospect and making him key to plays serves as indisputable evidence that if you do the work associated with the most rewarding elements of handicapping, you will get to winners and impact your bankroll positively. Believe it. Let the whiners and lazy cry about how impossible "they've" made it to win at this game.. Meanwhile, the rest of us will do the work, satisfy our intellectual curiosity and enjoy the challenge. Great weekend ahead. Continued good luck to the NHC players!

Going to figure that Apologize (6-1) gets lost on the board and floats upward to providing an overlay. Filly hales from important Alexander/Groves female line that boasts Blue Hen mare Courtly Dee (Althea, Aquilegia, Twining, Noble Courtier, et al) as 2nd dam. Apologize's own dam Aurelia is a half to both Atelier and Aldiza. There has been plenty of turf success in the family and being by Lemon Drop Kid should help bring it out in Apologize. She's a better horse now then when she tried grass in fall of her 2yo year and seems a viable key in this wide open group..

Best Value: #3 Apologize 6-1 2nd

Another event where breeding looms, Emollient sister Calm Water (Mott) and Data Link sib Guard the Lines (McGaughey) being the glaring examples. Archangelus is out of Palais Versailles, daughter of the great Versailles Treaty and sister of Saarland and George Vancouver. But the story in this group centers around the breeder/owner who brought you Fort Larned.. and Bayakoa.. and Affluent. Janis Whitham has amassed a remarkable record with a narrow band of stock and there could be a lot of upside in Innate Grace whom Ian Wilkes starts here. While everyone will be familiar with the Juddmonte and Janney produce, many may have forgotten the underappreciated Affluent whose dam Trinity Place (Strawberry Road) was a half sister of Arlucea (Broad Brush), the dam of Fort Larned. Affluent had the misfortune of being a 3yo when Xtra Heat exploded in 2001 and a 4yo when Azeri was going nuts in 2002. But as a sophomore, she won the G1 Queen Elizabeth II (9f-Turf) in October and the G1 La Brea (7f-Dirt) in December. As an older filly and mare, she continued to demonstrate her ability on any surface at varied distance winning the G1 Mabee/Ramona at DMR (9f-Turf) and G1 Santa Monica (7f-Dirt) at SA. She NEVER missed a check in 23 career starts (8-5-4-3-3), hitting the board in 10 of 13 G1's for earnings of just under $1,500,000 for Ron McAnally. Innate Grace is 20-1 and the surface and added ground should suit her..

Super Add: #10 Miz Lee 10-1 3rd


10th: 28th Holy Bull (G2), 3yo, 8.5f (DD)

Fascinating edition of the this Fountain of Youth/Florida Derby prequel with credentialed Cairo Prince meeting a big group of wannabes. Most interesting price prospects are drawn to the very difficult outside in Conquest Titan (12-1) and Intense Holiday (6-1). There's not a great deal of speed involved here and you get the sense that Cairo Prince will be in the best position throughout. Think he's better than Coup de Grace whose reputation took a hit by proxy when Unknown Road embarrassed himself Friday at Fair Grounds. There's no reason that Mr. Speaker -- whose dam Salute is a daughter of Personal Ensign and hence a half to My Flag, Miners Mark, etc. -- shouldn't get over the main track..

Most Likely: #7 Cairo Prince 3-1 WON ($6.20)

RESULTS 1/20 

Came away from Saturday feeling like an opportunity was missed as hits at Aqueduct ($96) and Santa Anita ($142) and puny GP conso ($10) fell $35 short of squaring the total investments on multis. Having $19.20 Star Channel and $37.40 Charlie A as "C's" on the Gulfstream P5 was two too many, as one needed to be an "A" or both "B's" to catch the $1,323 P5 and/or $378 P4 prizes. Hope everyone did well. MLK Holiday Monday provides some terrific racing and carryovers at both Aqueduct (Jimmy Winkfield) and Santa Anita (San Pedro). The Smarty Jones anchors the Oaklawn card.

4th: MSW, 4+, 8.5f (P6, P3, DD)

No surprises here as the favorites stand out. Distorted Dream (6-1) offers a little value and will be in front early, but note Frame adds blinkers for the stretchout and could prompt or duel..

5th: CLM, F&M-4+, 1m-70y (G/S, P3, DD)

Esler barn going very well but Taylor Jagger appears a vulnerable 5-2 favorite in a well matched field. Levine sends Andy Berg's $8k Chicago discovery Silver Crush whose recent races more than good enough for this. Mess in a Dress returns to claiming ranks and her races for $20-25k fit well. Could get loose under bug girl Rice who has been holding her own. Note also Araya's 2nd runner, C C's Pride, owns win at PEN 10/18 that would impact here. Tough spot in challenging P6..

Wide open start to P4 with un-raced and lightly raced state bred gals. Official (Officer) comes from a zippy, win-early family and if McMahon is getting horses now from Dennis Narlinger, you can be sure he'll have them ready; Happy Recap, half to nice, ill-fated Meese Rocks, showed speed in debut; Kimmel not a 'first out' trainer, but Marketable Miss popped a 5f bullet gate work 12/27 that is enough of a red flag for prominent inclusion..

POST-SCRATCHES


6th: MSW, 3yo, 5.5f (P4, P3, DD)

Time for Xtra Heat son Pimpernel to graduate? Doffs blinks, adds Lasix. As discussed on ATR, 'other' Baffert Roger Rocket has some historic pedigree strength out of a sister to Mutakkdim. Garen from Peter Miller (who delivered $30 El Nino Terrible to listeners Friday) is a half to Invasor who adds the hood and gets a pace to close into.

RESULTS 1/17  

Some of the obvious players scratched out of the late P4 sequence at Aqueduct Thursday, but things worked out nicely anyway as $17.80 Voodoo Tales keyed a very good afternoon. Vulnerable Pletch stretch fave Violet Hour was dueled into submission by Esquivel and Voodoo Tales and not only generated a $195 quad hit, but triggered a bulky $367 triple ($1) with 11-1 Hugh McMahon invader No Means No up for 2nd. No Means No hinted at being a great exotics candidate given the Laurel N1X regular was clearly in NY for a shot at the nice $53k starter ALW pot. With the solid purses available these days in Maryland, you had to think that McMahon wouldn't go to the trouble of coming to Queens without a viable runner. So, what at first looked like a problematic situation with the scratch of Royal Suspicion -- whom I really liked and was going to essentially single -- turned out to a fortuitous result. Hope everyone did well.

Gulfstream seemed liked the best candidate for Friday action, though Santa Anita ended up generating a $42k P6 carryover for later.. Big Weekend Preview ATR coming up with Hersh, Privman, Welsch, Tammaro, DeRosa, Hammerle and HRTV's Amy Zimmerman.

RESULTS 1/16

Got fortunate at Gulfstream Wednesday as 'C' ticket converted for $105 to defray overall investment of $135 in the P5 & P4. $22.80 Where's the Baby upset the P5 opener and was not on my radar at all, but at least when Starship Journey ($17.60) prevailed in the 7th, the back up ticket had life. The very obvious horses in the late trio -- Private Ensign, Ack Rider, Wire Funds -- not only came through, but dominated. Hope everyone did OK. An interesting late P4 at AQU today with a MSW with several options to start ahead of a 7th-9th that may only require a narrow band of inclusions..

Tremendously intriguing group with surface switchers possessing decent back form on grass (20-1 Molly Morgan; 5-2 Via Villaggio), a trio of barn movers (3-1 Long Face and 6-1 Euro Import Triple Charm to Clement; 4-1 Alaura Michelle to Pletcher) and a pair of medium priced 'shots with races two back that can win (10-1 Gamay Noir; 8-1 Royal Fury).

Torturous set of $50k maidens featuring eye-crossing assembly of turf movers, barn switchers, class droppers and first time starters. There are some gaudy trainer stats in tow here that may be clues or may confound including Herman Wilensky (20-1 When We Act) hitting at an astounding 50% W's with his last 24 acquisitions ($3.17 ROI). If you want to go back further, he's still good for a 26% clip with his last 148 for a $2.73 ROI..

Slightly awkward group of fillies and mares with potential for a surprise. Eastern Atlantic (Stormy Atlantic) makes a late-in-life first start on dirt and there is reasonable expectation that she might like it. The 5yo mare is out of Echo d'Or, a full sister to the excellent Meyerhoff-owned, Buddy Delp-trained sire Western Echo.

First of 3 months of Mondays at Aqueduct starts this afternoon and has added incentive of $60k double carryover in tow. Track punished attempts to utilize the inside path Sunday, so it will be worth monitoring the early races (2 sprints; 1 route) ahead of the P6 to see if the situation carries into today's action. Andy Serling on ATR this morning at 10:40a to set the stage for this new scheduling wrinkle of Thursday-Monday racing..

Highly notable pedigree on display as KMc/Darley unveil Sublime (Medaglia d'Oro), first foal out of the wonderful Hystericalady. As well as McLaughlin barn is going, hard to expect this onw to win at first asking, though dam did win early going just 4.5f at Golden Gate in '05..

$60k DBL P6 C/O starts here..

Pletcher dropper has shown little in NY-MSW tries, but this seems like right level. Firsters Channel Bot (Rodriguez) and Astronomo (Kenneally) won't have to be too special to impact this and Rodriguez has handsome numbers debuting in MCLM's (25%; $2.06 ROI on DRF trainer stats)..

Joking is the likeliest winner, yes, but there are 5 others here within a couple of lengths of him. I struggled with this race and believe it is more perilous than it might appear at first glance..

POST-SCRATCHES


2nd: OC/$100k, 4+, 1m (P4, P3, DD)

High level OC lures return of LA Derby/Withers winner & KY Derby show pony Revolutionary, but also the seasonal debuts of SW's Reveron ('12 GP Derby), Honorable Dillon ('13 Hutcheson) & Falling Sky ('13 Sam Davis). While Revolutionary is working well for first start since Belmont, this is a prep for the Donn and his style may leave him with a lot to do on a track that isn't typically kind to off the pace rallyers..

POST SCR NOTE: SCR of Silver Menace takes earliest speed out of lineup..

Most Likely: #3 Honorable Dillon 3-1 5th
Best Value: #2 Reveron 6-1 4th

Wild assembly of potential talent that features debuts from throng of expensive purchases with distinguished siblings: $700k Hartford SCR'D is a full to Dance Card (Pletcher/Stonestreet); $400k Constitution is a half to Emcee (Pletcher/WinStar-Twin Creeks); $550k Athens a half to Pomeroy (Mott/WinStar); $600k Indy's Legacy a three-quarter brother to Cool Coal Man (Byrne/Sanfords).

6th: MSW, 3yo, 9f-T/96' (Jackpot Rainbow 6, P3, DD)

Rather wide open event with explosive potential if the favorites falter. Beyond obvious Majestic Sunset and Double Whammy, several at prices can move up significantly in turf bows including Blarp (12-1), Downtownleroybrown (20-1), Notability (8-1) and my especially kooky longshot Caspian Sea (20-1). Maddy Bird (20-1) another oddball number that lures Lopez and is out of dam that is full sister of $8,000,000 yearling Mr. Sekiguchi. ML second choice Perky Kitten (4-1) may be a play against off series of morning efforts that weren't viewed favorably..

10th: 27th Hal's Hope (G3), 4+, 1m (DD)

Terrific group with virtually no auto-toss candidates. May not be a great deal of pace on here and if Simmstown is left alone, he'll wire. Purple Egg may be the one to apply pressure to keep things honest. Strike One looks poised for a breakthrough and with no absolute 'beat me' type involved, I'm willing to take a shot at what should be a big number..

POST-SCRATCHES


4th: CLM/N2L, 4+, 6f (P6, P3, DD)

$24,569 P6 C/O starts here..

Tricky Slam obviously horse to beat, but Jersey Jet (main track?), Chief Scout (more improvement to come?), Pepe (return to career best?) and Sonnyandpally (enough pace to close into?) all within striking distance if circumstances allow..

Most Likely: #5 Pepe 7-2 WON ($5.00)
Best Value: #1 Sonnyandpally 6-1 3rd
Next Best: #8 Chief Scout 4-1 2nd
Exotics Use: #7 Jersey Jet 15-1 DNF-Unseated rider


5th: CLM/N2L, F&M-4+, 6f (G/S, P3, DD)

Exotics Use: #2 Julesco 5-2 3rd
Super Add: #6 Raven Rise 3-1 6th


6th: MCLM/$50k, 3yo, 1m (P4, P3, DD)

Hard to believe that John Morrison will run both #4 Brendan G and #9 Qui C'est Moi SCR'D given on lead and pressing style of pair. Either could be on loose lead here without presence of other. Meanwhile, 2nd timer Oltre' Oto and Pletcher/Repole dropper Village Warrior loom as obvious players. Zito Indiana-bred Percy's Ambition, exiting MSW that produced Coup de Grace and Unknown Road, has look of one that will take to added ground. Will be a big number..

Most Likely: #4 Brendan G 3-1 6th
Next Best: #7 Village Warrior 2-1 2nd
Best Value: #2 (POE) Percy's Ambition 12-1 5th
Exotics Use: #3 Oltre' Oro 9-2 WON ($9.10)


7th: CLM, 4+, 6f (P3, DD)

This race (and 8th) keys to sequence with break and early jock decisions central to whether pace is simply honest or heated. Jacobson continues to play claiming game aggressively with $20k last out buy Rift dipping to $12.5k tag here while seeking $15k winner's share of $25k pot. Exley, Money Only, Starship Captain, Alcomatch and Avenging Spirit are all jamming down in this set making your ticket exclusions very difficult..

Most Likely: #2 Exley 6-1 7th
Next Best: #9 Alcomatch 7-2 WON ($5.70)
Best Value: #4 Starship Captain 20-1 3rd
Exotics Use: #3 Say Mr. Sandman 12-1 2nd


8th: NY-OC/N2X, F&M-4+, 8.5f (DD)

Treacherous group confounds at each look as players like Downtown Hottie lure you despite a 14/0-4-2 inner track mark. Gloria Victoria may have put it all together and may just overwhelm this set..

Most Likely: #6 Gloria Victoria 5-2 2nd
Next Best: #3 Downtown Hottie 7-2 4th
Best Value: #5 City Gone Wild 5-1 6th
Exotics Use: #7 Hot Splash 6-1 WON ($17.40)

6th: 41st Busanda, 3yo-F, 1m-70 (P4, P3, DD)

Understand viewing Camille Claudel as a mudlark off the jump up maiden win in LRL slop, but note Tres Abbott added blinkers to the package for that effort which may have been more influential than footing. Happy to take a chance on a 10-1 stranger in this oddball assembly where pace scenario and styles are plenty murky..

Best Value: #4 Camille Claudel 10-1 6th
Next Best: #6 Alpaca Fina 5-2 5th
Exotics Use: #1 Flipcup 3-1 2nd
Super Add: #7 Fleet of Gold 6-1 3rd


7th: ALW/N1X, F&M-4+, 1m (P3, DD)

As Nick Tammaro said yesterday, a hodge-podge of allowance & starter types that ends up being a well matched set. Favored Hot Stones (2-1) a giant question mark on stretchout. Endless Chatter (6-1) fits the pattern we've been noting on ATR of a horse who returns to the scene off an extended break (10 months) and may be much better now than when she left. Rare chance at a price on Chad Brown barn runner..

Most Likely: #6 What the Frost 5-2 4th

9th: CLM, F&M-4+, 6f

Anchor leg of perilous sequence has a number of mojo options including runners for new outfits (Gabrilicious and Speedy Lee D from Rudy Rod; Merryland Moon back to Midwest TB and adding blinkers; Guyana Princess first off claim for Riccio/Nevin). Question here is pace with Speedy Lee D and Thetrainwasgone confirmed frontrunners and little else certain to be part of the early mix. If one or the other gets loose, they can wire. If someone else gets aggressive and prompts, we'll get a fair rendering. Very tough end to difficult P4..

Most Likely: #7 Merryland Moon 8-1 4th
Best Value: #1 Matching Skies 20-1 WON ($14.60)
Next Best: #2 Gabrilicious 10-1 6th

Fun group and no bad ideas with plethora of price options including Catalano's Poetic Kid (10-1), Clement's Naples Bay (6-1), Mott's Floral Romance and Pletcher's Viva Rafaela (15-1). Big question here is stretch out capability of Silverette (12-1) and how much pressure is applied from any number of candidates.

RESULTS 1/1 

All I can do this New Year's Day is pull out all the clichés after yesterday's improbable closing act. I say it's 'the greatest unscripted drama in the sporting world' and 'you can't make it up' and so forth and Tuesday's year end Ozone Park Miracle confirmed it again. I was beyond delighted to construct a successful P6 negotiation that may not have been life-changing, but certainly was vocation-affirming.

In addition to feeling like the P4 and P6 hits made up for a handful of truly agonizing near-misses in 2013, the way the wagers scored via the elaborate multi-ticket approach (5 A's, 1 C) justified the extra work involved in the process. As I've explained on radio for years, the Steve Crist A-B-C-X structure and multi ticket approach is the best way to attack, but for too long I tried to keep it simple 'on paper' in the selections with the 'caveman' tickets.

It is labor intensive to post each Ticketmaker play pre and post SCR's and I always worried that there would be small mistakes along the way that botched things and wasted people's money. Indeed, even with the successes Tuesday, there was a small post-SCR hiccup where I somehow omitted 2nd choice Petrocelli from the plays in favor of 3rd choice Star of New York. Luckily Tycoon Cat left no doubt about the anchor leg outcome.

Anyway, I'm pleased at least one person played along on the $152 P6 ($11,602) and many more on the 14-1 return $65 P4 ($905) and appreciate all the kind notes of encouragement and well wishes. It's important to have hits like Tuesday's if you play regularly and seriously because it not only keeps the balance sheet reasonable, but confirms confidence in your own opinion. And to those giving up the game blaming unbeatable and 'overwhelming' ambient conditions, returns that keep determined players profitable, or at least in the hunt, are the best response to braying quitters. You need luck certainly, but like anything else in life, the harder you work, the luckier you'll get. (Ben Hogan paraphrased.)

 Best wishes to all for a super 2014. Let's encourage each other and make it great..

RESULTS 12/31 

Bit of a maddening beat at Aqueduct Sunday when live to 2 horses for a P6 conso and 4 runners for sizeable P4's thanks to the multi ticket approach. Though AE-draw in Silver Day (7-1) got by 6-1 Money in Motion and 37-1 Classic R&B to quash the P4 opportunity, the fact was driven home that the more elaborate ticket structuring puts you in best position for scores. A win by Classic R&B specifically was worth $3,619. If unaware, DRF Ticketmaker makes it simple to build your multi plays: http://www.drf.com/store/drf-bets-ticketmaker

The sequence was stood on its' ear early when implausible Go West Marie ($25) won the first leg and widespread single A.P. Cino failed in the second. A.P. Cino's loss is another example of how the multi ticket approach keeps you in the hunt longer and more often as Photon was on 20% of the plays and helped get the investment in position for at least a conso. Despite the P4/P6 misses, the day was bouyed along by Modern Child who was nicely piloted by Rajiv Maragh for a $38 tote bump.

Only one horse was live for the P6 in the nightcap and the Chatterpaul winner wasn't it, so a must-pay P6 opportunity results on this New Year's Eve card. There's also a similar forced distribution at Laurel in their P5. Hope everyone has had a good 2013 and enjoyed the excellent year of racing to which we were treated. From a balance sheet perspective, I lost several thousand this year but take solace in the fact that the Del Mar P6 DQ out of $23k+ turns this recap into a gloatfest. As Damon Runyon said, 'all horseplayers die broke', but as long as you're north of the loam, you're live in the next race...

Best of luck to everyone today and warm wishes for a 2014 filled with health, happiness, love and good fortune.

$94k Must Pay P6 C/O starts here..

Not 100% convinced that favored Sun and Moon (2-1) is reliable and if it's not her or returning Sustainable (5-2), this race could get messy fast. Aqua Regia gets first Lasix after losing any chance at start of debut. Tizarocket showed more speed in last and subsequently fired 3 straight bullets on 5 day intervals..

Unless a short rest regression saps Moments Notiz, he appears tough to beat (A). Consistent inner track performer Frazil, Linda Rice's other player Quick Money and Island Sunset SCR'D on the barn switch to Jacobson are contenders (B's). 10-1 Head Heart Hoof (Entered for 1/1/14) and 12-1 Exley merit a glance (C's)..

Forged (half to MSW sprinter Comedero) and American Creed exit the 12/7 MDN heat that produced Groupthink & Uncle Sigh in a photo. Uncle Sigh then smoked in second start last week. Frost Jordan moves inside after wide-ish trip debut. Mark Twain has a terrific worktab for 5/2-0-1 at meet Leo O'Brien and was sold for nearly 3x the average price for a Noonmark yearling. All Over Me is out of $174k earner Leawood who was better on grass but an OK main track sprinter. Slippery Cannizzo won first out with River Dancer and Sol the Dancer earlier this year..

Sidearm, Geaux Mets SCR'D and Sandcat mixed it up to noses and necks 3 weeks ago and also crossed paths with impressive Samraat, (as did Eye Luv Lulu in his debut). Tricky element in this set is 5.5f distance, a configuration at which Double Gold, Sol the Freud and Sandcat all broke their maidens. Don't be put off by Eye Luv Lulu winning v. MCLM/$50k as that was open company and a good equivalent to NY-MSW's. Sing the Dream (20-1) may not be a win candidate, but could boost your tri or super. Very good race..

RESULTS 12/29

Parade of $17-$25 winners at Aqueduct crushed my P4 interests and tripped a $33k carryover into Sunday. Central to the price players was Dominick Schettino, who last saddled a winner on October 27, but got firster Molly the Freud and previously mired Fee and Sugar across for diplomas.

Had all the mundane victors at Santa Anita but stupidly categorized Unbridled's Song as a 3rd choice "B" in the P4 structures which cost a breakeven return of the $1.50 main play. One nice result at Arcadia was 10-1 ML 'Best Value' idea Cherubim who crushed a good MSW group at nearly 21-1. Cherubim was interesting because of strong workout notes from Andy Harrington in his National Turf report:

SA 12/15: Would have called this a breeze under wraps while going the last 4f in 47.4. May like the dirt a lot more than now departed Cushion surface. -- Grade: B

SA 12/9: Much the best over Son Of Malibu looking to have nice looking power while under wraps, last 3f in 36.1. Sure looks better than debut. -- Grade: B

For $10, you should not play SoCal tracks without Harrington's insights. Hope everyone did well Saturday... This AQU sequence is completely impossible, but I've capped it and here are the thoughts.

$33k P6 C/O starts here..

Reasonable opening to skein with dropping faves Sals Wonderfulgirl and Believeinfaith standing out. There are lurkers though in the form of Julie Napp SCR'D (Schettino, dropping down & cutting back) and Lady Luciano (Cannizzo Frost Giant miss that improved in first try on the inner track). The fun horse here is Lauded (20-1) from Henning who sports the pentafecta of karma moves by dropping down, cutting back, going turf to dirt, adding blinkers and tabbing bug!

BREEDERS' CUP -- SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2

 

Super highway main track proved irksome commodity for a while Friday as feared, but most seemed to adjust accordingly and at least know what to expect Saturday. Overall afternoon was enjoyable culminating with spectacular effort by Beholder in the Distaff. Earlier, both juvenile grass races saw big performances from Euro winners Chriselliam and Outstrip. Mutuel efforts were solid with a big hit to start the day in the opener and a nice flourish through the late P4 races. Hope everyone did well..

Best Value: #7 Dothraki 15-1 3rd
Next Best: #8 Love In The Desert 2-1 4th
Exotics Use: #5 Test Ride 5-1 7th


2nd: Damascus, 3yo, 7f (P3, DD)

If track is still souped up today, Anillo will be the one to catch. Flashback still likely to win, but under scenario we saw yesterday, this is the kind of spot where awareness of the possibility of a wire job by the speed of the speed means taking a chance by at least covering a horse like Anillo..

Best Value: #5 Anillo 8-1 3rd
Next Best: #1 Flashback 2-5 2nd
Exotics Use: #3 Zeewat 4-1 WIN ($12.00)


3rd: Sen. Ken Maddy (G3), F&M-3+, 6.5f-T (P3, DD)

Like Friday's terrific Twilight, a contentious group. Juddmonte made a very specific decision in bringing Ultrasonic SCR'D to U.S. to run down the hill. Minds Eyes and Unusual Hottie offer value and can be used on top. Both Proctor runners are eligible, but there's plenty of speed here so Procurement (6-1) earns the nod over Purim's Dancer (7-2)..

Best Value: #8 Minds Eyes 15-1 9th
Next Best: #10 Unusual Hottie 8-1 10th
Exotics Use: #13 Pontchatrain 6-1 WON ($6.60)
Super Add: #3 Winding Way 8-1 2nd


4th: 30th Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1), 2yo-F, 8.5f (P4, P3, DD)

Sweet Reason, already a caution after iffy appearances in the morning, appears further compromised by track conditions. Rooting for, but betting against. Hushion's peaking Frizette winner Artemis Agrotera meanwhile gets benefit of track and may be 2nd New York bred to win a Cup race 24 hours after London Bridge broke the ice for Empire State in the Marathon. Midwest fillies from McPeek and Asmussen look ideal as next likelys. Though West Coast gals Secret Compass and She's a Tiger (both 6-1) have gotten the most notice, diminutive Concave has made an impression on me every morning with her plucky spins and will provide tremendous value at 15-1 or more..

Most Likely: #1 Artemis Agrotera 3-1 5th
Best Value: #2 Rosalind 8-1 3rd
Next Best: #7 Untapable 5-1 8th
Exotics Use: #6 Concave 15-1 9th


5th: 15th Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf, F&M-3+, 10f-T (P3, DD)

Important to know if Laughing is staying in this or not. High strung miss did not ship well -- which her team knew might be an issue -- and went off her feed. If they run, then she should be 100% fine as Goldberg/Santulli top horsemen that have reputations of always doing the right thing by their horses. There isn't any authentic speed to go with Laughing, so she presents the same wire threat in this that she has all summer..

Most Likely: #1 Dank 5-2 WON ($5.00)

First of the day's defending Cup winners here and after season-long travails, expect -- not just hope -- Groupie Doll goes out in style. Pace runners like Ismene and Starship offer great value as types that can survive front end while Sweet Lulu (and Summer Applause as well) have that turnback punch you look for at seven-eighths..

Most Likely: #11 Groupie Doll 5-2 WON ($8.00)
Best Value: #6 Ismene 20-1 11th

Exotics Use: #3 Starship Truffles 15-1 12th


7th: 30th Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G3), 3+, 6.5f-T (P6, P3, DD)

Typically fun downhill event and key numbers are :21.2 and :42.2 as anything south of those splits will elicit a collapse. Renee, Tightend and Spring/Sky look like they will provide solid zip, but there may not be quite enough pressure to guarantee that the closers get up like Desert Code in '08 or Mizdirection last year. Interesting thing about the defending winner is that she has been on the front end this year but appears capable of adjusting to whatever she encounters. Working insanely and may very well retain hill crown..

Most Likely: #9 Capo Bastone 8-1 13th

8th: 30th Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1), 2yo, 8.5f (P3, DD)

Draw placing Strong Mandate and Havana wide opened this race up, but note that Goldencents managed to make the outpost work OK Friday by getting the lead and letting the conveyor assist him late. Will respect the obvious on the outside, but have to lean on some playable prices inside..

9th: 30th Breeders' Cup Turf (G1), 3+, 12f-T (P4, P3, DD)

Another race where draw heavily impacts decision-making with Real Solution hurt by extreme gate. The Fugue oozes class with these and the added distance versus last year's F&M Turf choice should help her. Indy Point poised for big effort. Point of Entry win would be remarkable accomplishment for Team Shug. Twilight Eclipse has knocked on doors all year and gets Leparoux which could be a good fit..

Most Likely: #7 The Fugue 3-1 2nd
Next Best: #9 Indy Point 9-2 3rd

Exotics Use: #8 Point of Entry 4-1 4th


10th: 30th Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1), 3+, 6f (P3, DD)

I don't want to get maudlin, but have to say the sadness and unfairness of Points Offthebench being absent from these proceedings will make this a hard event to watch. Pace will be of the leatherneck variety and though one or another of the front-enders can be track-aided and stay on, stalkers and closers should be able to get involved..

Most Likely: #9 Secret Circle 4-1 WON ($7.00)

12th: 30th Breeders' Cup Classic, 3+, 10f (Super Hi-5)

As I wrote in Xpressbet BC Wagering Guide, race seems to be calling for an alternate view with so many familiar players looking interchangeable. I'll key off the Coolmore invader who is classiest entrant and while not conformed perfectly for the main track, is certainly bred for it being out of Union Rags sister. Has cruising speed and staying style and as long as dirt in the face doesn't make him recoil early, has big chance at nice number. May not be Giant's Causeway, but he's no doorknob either. Ian Wilkes, who is an easy read, exuding confidence with defending winner Fort Larned. Flat Out looks better physically than he did earlier in the summer and gets services of Rosario back. Palace Malice is the best 3yo hope though Moreno has exceeded expectations the last two starts and may be the speed that's in space in the stretch..

Most Likely: #5 Declaration of War 10-1 3rd
Next Best: #7 Fort Larned 6-1 4th

BREEDERS' CUP -- FRIDAY NOVEMBER 1

 

 

Every year we arrive at this juncture and I feel compelled to trot out the Breeders' Cup invocation. Remember that whether you are successful or not, your ability as a horseplayer won't be defined over the course of 14 races. The Cup offers unique opportunities with chances to be rewarded for creative thinking and audacious risk-taking.

Some will come away delighted and some maddeningly frustrated, but all should approach these races as the curious and challenging puzzles they've become. No matter how well you 'handicap' the races, fields this deep and mysterious will produce several nearly unforeseeable results. Remember that you could be taking an 0-for going into Saturday's finale and get it all back and more in the 2:02.0 it takes to run Saturday's Classic.. Spend as freely as you can afford, get a little lucky, and here's hoping that everyone nets something that fills their account and makes them proud.

It's again been a pleasure trying to bring the flavor of the Cup to everyone listening, and I hope there was something offered that you can convert into winning tickets. Thanks to Santa Anita, ATR's sponsors and everyone who contributed so generously to the shows.. Best of luck this weekend!

Terrific assembly for this. Charming Kitten kept good company all summer and should sit a good ground-saving trip under Johnny V in this spot. Irish Surf beat elders to break MDN, continued to win and wasn't disgraced in the John Henry despite wide posting. Returns to straight sophomore company..

Race remains silly and superfluous to proceedings but that doesn't mean we don't want to bet on it. Gary Stevens gushed about lung capacity of Argentinean import Ever Rider and his morning circuits of SA oval remind you of last year's winner Calidoscopio. One earmark for success in this event has been class and Suns Out Guns Out (Empire Maker) and Worldly (A.P. Indy o/o Urbane) strike as types that will stay successfully..

Lines appear clearly drawn here with Bobby's Kitten the American standout with Giovanni Boldini and Outstrip the serious Euro challengers. After that trio, you can tinker with some super fillers like Got Shades that get Stevens and was raced last time without Lasix in anticipation of this assignment..

Wildly entertaining group and with ML faves Verrazanno (3-1) and Goldencents (4-1) drawing poorly, things more open than they might have been. This race has regularly produced unanticipated winners and Holy Lute (20-1) is a prime upset candidate having moved into contention range in first main track start when 3rd in Indiana Derby last time. Needs further improvement to best some grizzled veterans and fellow 3yo's, but gains services of Mike Smith after sneaking into starting grid..

$552k double carryover Friday at Santa Anita as only one favorite (7th-Rangi) came through in the challenging sextet. I was able to identify the 3 biggest prices in the P6 as Best Value players Thursday ($20.40 Our Flitter Ball; $16.40 An Unusual Group; $20.60 Spirit Rules), but didn't have them weighted as needed to generate multi-race success. Plus, unlike Brad Free, I didn't like Rangi! Friday sequence doesn't feel immediately easier either, but let's give it a go..

RESULTS 3/15 

Enjoyed a nearly perfect afternoon at Gulfstream Friday running the table with 'A' selections up to the nightcap when 'B' player Moonwalker overwhelmed the turf sprint finale. Happily settled for $3,500+ in P5 & P4 success, but could not close out the pesky Rainbow 6 that had potential to make the day particularly special with an additional 5 figure score. Was certainly the beneficiary of the stewards' stand surviving 2 inquiries, being put up in a third and avoiding a possible look-see in the first leg when $22 Night Song got the day off to a roaring start.

One thing that becomes apparent from the Rainbow 6 flirtation is that the quality payouts for very modest investment are available if you are at ease with the nature of the wager. The sequence paid nearly $17k Friday and it would not have taken too much tinkering with the simple $38.40 play to bring it home. And obviously, a larger budget play had high potential to hit. But as I've discussed on ATR, it's an action bet and $40 is about what I'm willing to throw at the daily equine lotto the wager becomes when the pool is in the $500k range on a daily basis. Some people are playing for $20, some for $200, some for $2,000.

 After the initial trepidation about the appropriateness of playing it at all other than on the distribution day, it's become clear that you get exactly the amount of 'action' you're looking for if it's only a superfluous portion of your bankroll. It's not a 'smart' bet, but it's fun. Hope everyone did great yesterday and got something from the sequence if they were playing along.

Wild group where the 'all' button may be needed to assure safe passage in multis. Opportunity here to perhaps land a Pletcher stake runner at a price with Golden Lad. Steady developing Robsham homebred by Md'O is a half to G1 placed R Gypsy Gold and MGSW Broadway's Alibi and has been on a roll at Gulfstream topping next out winners Suns Out Guns Out and Valid in last pair. Should sit a nice trip behind the speed and we'll get the $11.00 that's being offered..

This race feels like an event that will not be run as in the manner it suggests on paper. Expect Tapiture will be more off the pace and Strong Mandate closer to it. Ride On Curlin moves inside, gains Desormeaux and may have the most upside in regards to options and value..

RESULTS 3/13 

Ticket-building efforts were sloppy Wednesday but still was able to eke out some profit with P4 and consos boosting returns. Interesting to note what Mike Welsch pointed out Tuesday regarding power of favorites and likely types as the 'prime' portion of the Gulfstream meet starts to draw toward a close. Hope everyone did well..

 Highlight Wednesday was obviously the dominant performance of Ron Sanchez' Social Inclusion over Honor Code. Andy Beyer quickly calculated a 111 figure for the track record performance, the biggest number ever for a non-stake route at GP. As noted Wednesday, it was indeed Rontos Racing that was eager to make the ALW go as signaled by their entering of Specialnightaction and their Pioneerof the Nile colt will most be getting a Derby point audition next out. With the FL Derby just 17 days away however, Manny Azpurua and Sanchez may have to opt for a trip out of town April 5th (Wood Memorial) or 12th (Arkansas Derby).

RESULTS 3/12 

Took heartbreaker photo beat in AQU 8th Monday costing P6 hit that was worth $3,000+. Looking back, ticket structure allowed either Rontos Code or Ruthless Alley to win, but not both. Pair of sextet consos and chalky P4 defrayed multi expenses and other bingos made day pleasant enough. Hope everyone did well. Honor Code returns in GP 8th this afternoon which should be interesting. Publisher's Clearinghouse Carryover now $47,000,000.. Just kidding. It's close to $3MM, but no one is playing for that anyway..

Confrontation, the least known undefeated horse in America, is back as a 4yo for Tagg and may pick up where he left off. Helooksthepart from capable Jimmy DiVito may sit ideal trip.

Was able to snare Social Inclusion in Fountain undercard debut, but note that inside was place to be that Saturday. As noted by Mike Welsch on ATR Tuesday, rail may have been deep and tiring over the weekend, so today's inside trip for the Pioneerof the Nile colt may be quite different and he has to negotiate two turns for the first time as well. Crafted for route and adds Lasix today too. Rontos has already rebuffed purchase offers for Social Inclusion and likely added Specialnightaction to the entries to make sure this race went; Whether they expected Honor Code in the field is a different question. Honor Code has had some issues getting ready for 3yo unveiling, but seems to be into a steady beat now. Has class edge coming in but doesn't have to win by any means. The value here is Kaplan's We're All Set who has kept good company..

R5 - MSW 47k

#5 Casselberry (8-1) - Expecting Lanarie to have him forwardly placed with a clean break for debut.
#1 Gambler's Ghost (4-1) - Showed some speed before tiring in debut as the chalk. Eligible to bounce back despite rail draw. WON $7.80
#3 Ragtime (5-1) - Phipps homebred for Shug must be used off strong string of works. 3RD
#6 Bay of Plenty (3-1) - 6 panels might be a little short for Darley runner that is regally bred and one to keep an eye on as the distance gets longer. 2ND

R6 - Clm 16k N2L (Turf 8.5F)

#4 Prime Devil (6-1) - Didn't care one lick for off the turf event in last at nearly even money. Deserves another shot at a better price today.

#8 Cairo Six (3-1) - Troubled trip in last didn't help and now drops to a level he can handle. 3RD
#7 Lay It Down (4-1) - Broke through on this course and fits right back. WON $14.60

R7 - MSW 47k (Turf 8.5F)

#2 Picozza (5-2) - Better post and break should do the trick for Pletcher runner. 2ND

#9 General a Rod (6-1) - Draws wide again, but really improved on the dirt. Has ability to rate. WON $9.60
#2 Gone as Wind (12-1) - That looks to be a strong group he tackled 16 days ago. Value at anything close to ML.
#7 Best Plan Yet (5-2) - Local star across down must prove it on bigger stage. Using cautiously.
#6 Pablo Del Monte (6-1) - Burning up the local strip for initial dirt start. Great value for strong barn. 4TH

R11 - Md 20k (Turf 7.5F)

#5 Back to Values (8-1) - Has been competitive and fits here on step down in class.
#4 Farleys Mandate (12-1) - Owns speed and lands in high % barn with an upgrade in rider.

RESULTS 12/31 

Bit of a maddening beat at Aqueduct Sunday when live to 2 horses for a P6 conso and 4 runners for sizeable P4's thanks to the multi ticket approach. Though AE-draw in Silver Day (7-1) got by 6-1 Money in Motion and 37-1 Classic R&B to quash the P4 opportunity, the fact was driven home that the more elaborate ticket structuring puts you in best position for scores. A win by Classic R&B specifically was worth $3,619. If unaware, DRF Ticketmaker makes it simple to build your multi plays: http://www.drf.com/store/drf-bets-ticketmaker

The sequence was stood on its' ear early when implausible Go West Marie ($25) won the first leg and widespread single A.P. Cino failed in the second. A.P. Cino's loss is another example of how the multi ticket approach keeps you in the hunt longer and more often as Photon was on 20% of the plays and helped get the investment in position for at least a conso. Despite the P4/P6 misses, the day was bouyed along by Modern Child who was nicely piloted by Rajiv Maragh for a $38 tote bump.

Only one horse was live for the P6 in the nightcap and the Chatterpaul winner wasn't it, so a must-pay P6 opportunity results on this New Year's Eve card. There's also a similar forced distribution at Laurel in their P5. Hope everyone has had a good 2013 and enjoyed the excellent year of racing to which we were treated. From a balance sheet perspective, I lost several thousand this year but take solace in the fact that the Del Mar P6 DQ out of $23k+ turns this recap into a gloatfest. As Damon Runyon said, 'all horseplayers die broke', but as long as you're north of the loam, you're live in the next race...

Best of luck to everyone today and warm wishes for a 2014 filled with health, happiness, love and good fortune.

All Over Me is out of $174k earner Leawood who was better on grass but an OK main track sprinter. Slippery Cannizzo won first out with River Dancer and Sol the Dancer earlier this year..

Most Likely: #1 Frost Jordan 3-1 WON ($3.90)
Next Best: #3 Forged 7-2 10th
Best Value: #8 Mark Twain 10-1 7th
Exotics Use: #7 American Creed 4-1 5th


7th: NY-OC/N1X, 2yo, 5.5f (P3, DD)

Sidearm, Geaux Mets SCR'D and Sandcat mixed it up to noses and necks 3 weeks ago and also crossed paths with impressive Samraat, (as did Eye Luv Lulu in his debut). Tricky element in this set is 5.5f distance, a configuration at which Double Gold, Sol the Freud and Sandcat all broke their maidens. Don't be put off by Eye Luv Lulu winning v. MCLM/$50k as that was open company and a good equivalent to NY-MSW's. Sing the Dream (20-1) may not be a win candidate, but could boost your tri or super. Very good race..

RESULTS 12/29

Parade of $17-$25 winners at Aqueduct crushed my P4 interests and tripped a $33k carryover into Sunday. Central to the price players was Dominick Schettino, who last saddled a winner on October 27, but got firster Molly the Freud and previously mired Fee and Sugar across for diplomas.

Had all the mundane victors at Santa Anita but stupidly categorized Unbridled's Song as a 3rd choice "B" in the P4 structures which cost a breakeven return of the $1.50 main play. One nice result at Arcadia was 10-1 ML 'Best Value' idea Cherubim who crushed a good MSW group at nearly 21-1. Cherubim was interesting because of strong workout notes from Andy Harrington in his National Turf report:

SA 12/15: Would have called this a breeze under wraps while going the last 4f in 47.4. May like the dirt a lot more than now departed Cushion surface. -- Grade: B

SA 12/9: Much the best over Son Of Malibu looking to have nice looking power while under wraps, last 3f in 36.1. Sure looks better than debut. -- Grade: B

For $10, you should not play SoCal tracks without Harrington's insights. Hope everyone did well Saturday... This AQU sequence is completely impossible, but I've capped it and here are the thoughts.

4th: MCLM/$50k, 2yo-F, 6f (P6, P3, DD)

$33k P6 C/O starts here..

Reasonable opening to skein with dropping faves Sals Wonderfulgirl and Believeinfaith standing out. There are lurkers though in the form of Julie Napp SCR'D (Schettino, dropping down & cutting back) and Lady Luciano (Cannizzo Frost Giant miss that improved in first try on the inner track). The fun horse here is Lauded (20-1) from Henning who sports the pentafecta of karma moves by dropping down, cutting back, going turf to dirt, adding blinkers and tabbing bug!

BREEDERS' CUP -- SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2

 

Super highway main track proved irksome commodity for a while Friday as feared, but most seemed to adjust accordingly and at least know what to expect Saturday. Overall afternoon was enjoyable culminating with spectacular effort by Beholder in the Distaff. Earlier, both juvenile grass races saw big performances from Euro winners Chriselliam and Outstrip. Mutuel efforts were solid with a big hit to start the day in the opener and a nice flourish through the late P4 races. Hope everyone did well..

Sweet Reason, already a caution after iffy appearances in the morning, appears further compromised by track conditions. Rooting for, but betting against. Hushion's peaking Frizette winner Artemis Agrotera meanwhile gets benefit of track and may be 2nd New York bred to win a Cup race 24 hours after London Bridge broke the ice for Empire State in the Marathon. Midwest fillies from McPeek and Asmussen look ideal as next likelys. Though West Coast gals Secret Compass and She's a Tiger (both 6-1) have gotten the most notice, diminutive Concave has made an impression on me every morning with her plucky spins and will provide tremendous value at 15-1 or more..

Important to know if Laughing is staying in this or not. High strung miss did not ship well -- which her team knew might be an issue -- and went off her feed. If they run, then she should be 100% fine as Goldberg/Santulli top horsemen that have reputations of always doing the right thing by their horses. There isn't any authentic speed to go with Laughing, so she presents the same wire threat in this that she has all summer..

First of the day's defending Cup winners here and after season-long travails, expect -- not just hope -- Groupie Doll goes out in style. Pace runners like Ismene and Starship offer great value as types that can survive front end while Sweet Lulu (and Summer Applause as well) have that turnback punch you look for at seven-eighths..

7th: 30th Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G3), 3+, 6.5f-T (P6, P3, DD)

Typically fun downhill event and key numbers are :21.2 and :42.2 as anything south of those splits will elicit a collapse. Renee, Tightend and Spring/Sky look like they will provide solid zip, but there may not be quite enough pressure to guarantee that the closers get up like Desert Code in '08 or Mizdirection last year. Interesting thing about the defending winner is that she has been on the front end this year but appears capable of adjusting to whatever she encounters. Working insanely and may very well retain hill crown..

Draw placing Strong Mandate and Havana wide opened this race up, but note that Goldencents managed to make the outpost work OK Friday by getting the lead and letting the conveyor assist him late. Will respect the obvious on the outside, but have to lean on some playable prices inside..

9th: 30th Breeders' Cup Turf (G1), 3+, 12f-T (P4, P3, DD)

Another race where draw heavily impacts decision-making with Real Solution hurt by extreme gate. The Fugue oozes class with these and the added distance versus last year's F&M Turf choice should help her. Indy Point poised for big effort. Point of Entry win would be remarkable accomplishment for Team Shug. Twilight Eclipse has knocked on doors all year and gets Leparoux which could be a good fit..

I don't want to get maudlin, but have to say the sadness and unfairness of Points Offthebench being absent from these proceedings will make this a hard event to watch. Pace will be of the leatherneck variety and though one or another of the front-enders can be track-aided and stay on, stalkers and closers should be able to get involved..

12th: 30th Breeders' Cup Classic, 3+, 10f (Super Hi-5)

As I wrote in Xpressbet BC Wagering Guide, race seems to be calling for an alternate view with so many familiar players looking interchangeable. I'll key off the Coolmore invader who is classiest entrant and while not conformed perfectly for the main track, is certainly bred for it being out of Union Rags sister. Has cruising speed and staying style and as long as dirt in the face doesn't make him recoil early, has big chance at nice number. May not be Giant's Causeway, but he's no doorknob either. Ian Wilkes, who is an easy read, exuding confidence with defending winner Fort Larned. Flat Out looks better physically than he did earlier in the summer and gets services of Rosario back. Palace Malice is the best 3yo hope though Moreno has exceeded expectations the last two starts and may be the speed that's in space in the stretch..

Most Likely: #5 Declaration of War 10-1 3rd

BREEDERS' CUP -- FRIDAY NOVEMBER 1

 

 

Every year we arrive at this juncture and I feel compelled to trot out the Breeders' Cup invocation. Remember that whether you are successful or not, your ability as a horseplayer won't be defined over the course of 14 races. The Cup offers unique opportunities with chances to be rewarded for creative thinking and audacious risk-taking.

Some will come away delighted and some maddeningly frustrated, but all should approach these races as the curious and challenging puzzles they've become. No matter how well you 'handicap' the races, fields this deep and mysterious will produce several nearly unforeseeable results. Remember that you could be taking an 0-for going into Saturday's finale and get it all back and more in the 2:02.0 it takes to run Saturday's Classic.. Spend as freely as you can afford, get a little lucky, and here's hoping that everyone nets something that fills their account and makes them proud.

It's again been a pleasure trying to bring the flavor of the Cup to everyone listening, and I hope there was something offered that you can convert into winning tickets. Thanks to Santa Anita, ATR's sponsors and everyone who contributed so generously to the shows.. Best of luck this weekend!

Race remains silly and superfluous to proceedings but that doesn't mean we don't want to bet on it. Gary Stevens gushed about lung capacity of Argentinean import Ever Rider and his morning circuits of SA oval remind you of last year's winner Calidoscopio. One earmark for success in this event has been class and Suns Out Guns Out (Empire Maker) and Worldly (A.P. Indy o/o Urbane) strike as types that will stay successfully..

Wildly entertaining group and with ML faves Verrazanno (3-1) and Goldencents (4-1) drawing poorly, things more open than they might have been. This race has regularly produced unanticipated winners and Holy Lute (20-1) is a prime upset candidate having moved into contention range in first main track start when 3rd in Indiana Derby last time. Needs further improvement to best some grizzled veterans and fellow 3yo's, but gains services of Mike Smith after sneaking into starting grid..
