Saturday of Stars in The Making

Hola Amigos,

Welcome to Saturday Racing at Los Alamitos where I believe that tonight we will see some very special 2-year olds showcasing their talent. Good nine race card with a $13,068 pick six carryover that starts in race 4. The early pick four last night paid very good after some slight upsets in the sequence. We have some good fields that should yield yet another great payout. Lets get to it.

Race 1: There is no stand out in this field of maidens so I will use four runners to get me through with #2 Ganboringo, #4 Price the Vice, #6 Knows Best and #7 Jam Rose Bound Sa.

Race 2: This field of maiden thoroughbreds just seems very light on talent. That being the case I will single #4 Emerald Assets who us dropping from santa anita and lures Ramon Guce to ride. This runner came off a 14 month layoff last out at santa anita while luring leading rider Joel Rosario to ride. After that kind of layoff, this runner must have worked somewhat good in the mornings to have had Rosario aboard. Its now or never against this type of field.

Race 3: I will also single in this race with #7 Just Might Go who just ran a good second in his debut last out and now faces a field that mostly consists of first time starters. Had good drills before debut and now gets an outside post and Rodrigo Aceves to ride.

Race 4: This race concludes the pick four and starts the pick six. Two deep for me in this race with the two runners from trainer Paul Jones who sends #1 Precision Diamond and #6 Rw Red Wave who both are dropping into claiming for the first time and have good numbers to make them tough to beat.

Race 5: I will single #2 Freedom Choice in this race based on the good work last out, the great runner that her sire was and a connection play. This owner and trainer connection have mainly only raced homebreds and this runners is not one of them. That makes me think they liked this runner very much in order to make a purchase and gets the main rider for their stable. They also have a homebred running in #3 and lures reading Rider Cruz Mendez so make your pick. I will single #2 Freedom Choice.

Race 6: This is a good group of thoroughbreds going four and one half furlongs. I will use two runners in this field with the honest #3 Locksmith (top pick) who has been facing tougher fields than these and running two good thirds and now comes off a small break and has enough speed to stay close within striking distance. Also throwing in the speed horse in #5 El Valentin who comes off a sharp looking win and now enters first off the claim for high percentage connections and gets a hustling rider aboard. Dangerous.

Race 7: This is a nice field of fillies making their debuts and I will go two deep with runners lined up next to each other #1 Secretly Hot (top pick) who was two bullets works and her sire was a real nice runner. Also using #2 Finding Tiny Sum with two drills that where good looking and evenly timed. Paul Jones owns and trains this runners. Watch out.

Race 8: This is a nice field of experienced runners and I will single the horse to the outside #5 Wimping. This gelding comes from a long layoff since July of 2011 but has two very good looking drills leading up to this and hails from a trainer that spots them good and lures Cruz Mendez to ride. Love his chances for a slight upset.

Race 9: Closing out the card I will use two runners with top pick being #3 First Black Magic who is going first time from Paul Jones and shows a sharp drill and gets the services of main rider Ramon Sanchez (notice he had already ridden the other Jones runner in here). Also using #5 Bonos Lucky Jeans who has been unlucky to lose her last two races but her efforts fit very well against this bunch. Lets close the night a winning one.

$8 Early Pick Four Race One: 2,4,6,7/4/7/1,6

$32 Pick Six Race Four: 1,6/2/3,5/1,2/5/3,5

$8 Late Pick Four Race Six: 3,5/1,2/5/3,5

Good Luck and Lets Get some winners.

I watch horses run around.
