The John Ward Handicap

Posted on 10.24.2014 with No comments

Tonight's card at Los Alamitos features the running of the John Ward Handicap where PF Flyair will try to extend his local record to a perfect 3-for-3. He looked strong when winning the Blane Schvaneveldt earlier this month when defeating a few of his rivals tonight. He has a 6-for-9 record over today's distance and just loves to win races. He's definitely the one to beat.

Best Bet:
Race 4: #8 Cartel Breeze makes his first start for a claiming tag after finishing fourth against stakes company last out. He cuts back to 300 yards (both of his wins were at this distance) and has a good outside post. Trainer does well with this move.


Race 1:  1-2-5
Race 2:  1-3-7
Race 3:  5-1-2
Race 4:  8-6-5
Race 5:  6-2-1
Race 6:  1-5-3
Race 7:  4-7-2
Race 8:  5-6-3
Race 9:  5-6-2

Race 1 - $1 Pick Four
1,2 with 1,3,6,7 with 1,5 with 8
Total $16

Race 6 - $1 Pick Four
1,5 with 4,7 with 5 with 5

Break Time for "Agapito time"

Posted on 10.23.2014 with No comments

If you follow me on twitter you know about my "Agapito time" tweets. Nothing like getting a winner (often at a nice price) with Agapito in the saddle.

I'm disappointed (that he's not going to ride) to pass along the news (but happy that he's taking a break) that jockey Agapito Delgadillo will be taking a break from riding at the conclusion of the current Santa Anita Park meet (Nov 2). No injuries. No problems. He just decided he wanted to take a break and have some time off to refresh. He doesn't really know for how long. It might be a month or two or more.

In the meantime, let's hope we get a few more winners with Agapito riding. There's 9 more racing days left in the meet.

Meet Agapito's son: Jose Delgadillo (now riding in PA/MD/NJ/NY):

El jinete Agapito Delgadillo se estara tomando unas vacaciones al termino de esta temporada en Santa Anita Park (Nov 2). No es por lesiones o por problemas, solamente quiere disfrutar algún tiempo de descanso. Puede ser por un mes o dos o tal vez mas.

Golden State Million Futurity Trials

Posted on 10.19.2014 with No comments
A total of ten trials are on tap as two-year-olds will try to earn their spot as one of the ten fastest qualifiers that will return in the GI Golden State Million Futurity final. All eyes will be on the impressive Heza Dasha Fire who is making his first start since winning the GI Ed Burke Million Futurity.
Los Alamitos

Best Bet:
Race 5 - #8 Tango In Cash: He's one of those runners that has looked like he would enjoy the extra distance and today he will be making his first start beyond 300 yards. He's got a good outside post and we should get a good price given that some of his competition has already won at distances longer than 300 yards.


Race 1:  6-5-4
Race 2:  6-8-4
Race 3:  8-4-2
Race 4:  5-7-8
Race 5:  8-3-1
Race 6:  1-6-5
Race 7:  2-1-7
Race 8:  2-1-5
Race 9:  8-2-3
Race 10:  2-3-8


Race 1 - $1 Pick Four
6 with 6 with 4,8 with All
Total $16

Race 7 - $1 Pick Four
1,2,7 with 1,2,4,5,7 with 8 with 2
Total $15
