Carryover Friday at Los Alamitos

After an upset by Private Terrace (paid $89.60 for a $2 win bet) in the first leg of Wednesday's Pick-6, nobody was able to catch all six winners and there is a $26,721 carryover in today's program.

Racing begins at 2:15pm and the pick-6 begins with race 3.

Today's Picks:

Race 1:  2-1-5

#2 Jack No got away slowly in his debut at Santa Anita at a slightly higher level. He trained over this track and I think he will be more effective with the racing experience.

Race 2:  2-5-1

#2 Majestic Minister gets the slight nod from me in a very competitive field. I find it a big plus that top rider Rafael Bejarano decides to return to ride this horse for this low percentage trainer. Bejarano knows this horse well and he has ridder her to all of her three wins.

Race 3:  6-7-5

#6 Lucky Heat didn't get away to a good start in her debut at Santa Anita against $50,000 claimers and now takes a drop in class to the $20,000 level for a good trainer and jockey combination.  Her workouts appear to have gotten better since her first race.

Race 4:  4-5-2

#4 Rocko's Wheel tried the turf for the first time last time out and didn't seem to care for it. His dirt form is much better and his win two starts ago fits well in this spot.

Race 5:  4-6-9

#4 Silk in Silver has been given some time off since April and now returns at the same level she was claimed out of but this time in a sprint event. She has a sharp workout leading up to today and this trainer does well with his Thoroughbred stock during the night time programs.

Race 6:  1-7-4

#1 Mahee ran a good second in her last effort at Santa Anita at this same distance against a similar group. She set the pace and battled back to finish over six lengths clear of the third place finisher. She should be able to control the pace with her inside post and short run into the first turn.

Race 7:  5-6-1

#5 Smack Talk makes his first start since November for trainer Vann Belvoir. He won his debut last summer at Del Mar under this jockey and now shows a steady set of workouts in preparation for his return. He showed enough speed to stay close to the leaders early on and he will be dangerous if he can repeat that once again.

Race 8:  3-6-7

#3 Blame It On Tekela has been close to breaking his maiden and this field looks like it might be the group he has been looking for. He can press the pace or sit back and make a run.
I watch horses run around.
