Highlight Race Workouts
Big day on Fri May 20 for the HR clockers. We pushed the winners of 6 races, including two Fit and Ready listers, BATTI MAN (ARG) in the 3rd @ $7.80 and BIG BOOK in the 6th @ $7.60. We pushed the first time starter winner of the 4th race SONG OF EKATI, with 7 Grade B- works in which she outworked each of her workmates. She won big, earning a strong rating and paid a huge $36.00 to win. Finally, the 8th race was won by a nice worker, WIFE APPROVED, with a Grade B and 2 Grade B-'s, paying a sweet $15.00.
Nice start to the Santa Anita Spring Meet on Fri May 6. Even with the rain, the change of track conditions still produced some great Daily Clocker Report winners. The biggest price came in the 6th which came off the turf very late. HOME RUN KITTEN, who had produced a recent Grade B+ workout in which he came "the final 1/4 in 23.0, a very, very good work" and 4 Grade B's including his last one in which he "work blinkers (new?), looked very good, certainly seems improved in his last few works". 'KITTEN put on the new blinkers and won nicely paying $30.40. BIG TIRE won the 5th race off 2 recent Grade B- works "under a big hold throughout, much faster than given, final 1/4 in 24.1" and paid $22.80 to win. In the 8th SANITATION had a recent Grade B work "did his best work late, final 1/4 in a sharp 23.2, not asked, quite a nice work, seems on the improve". He broke slowly and came and got 'em late to pay $21.20. He was also a Horse to Watch, as was PRINCE VALIANT, the winner of the 3rd race who also had two decent Grade B- works recently and paid $5.40. Other winners on the day included HOT PERFECTION in the 1st with a recent Grade B- paying $9.60 in the 1st. We pushed 2 other chaulky winners in the 2nd, MAGICAL TOUCH, and MYSTERIOUS MIRACLE in the 3rd, both with Grade B drills.
The Subscriptions for the Santa Anita Spring Meet are available for purchase in your User Accounts. We will be supplying all of our usual daily and weekly reports for Santa Anita, including the Weekly Trip Notes Report and Horses to Watch List. The meet opens on Thursday May 5 and runs through July 10th. Our 2 clockers have been working full time at Santa Anita during the Los Al meet to provide a continuous supply of workouts for the horses that will race at the SA Spring Meet.
The lack of quality fields and the presence of many cheap maiden races made the pickings very slim during the Los Al meet. Thanks to all of our customers who purchased clocker reports during the meet and hopefully, you got well on Sat Apr 30 as two of our strong pushes won at nice prices in the final Pick 4.
In the final race the first time Baffert starter STORMIN EAGLE scored with a strong Grade B workout in his first SA workout in which he worked in tandem with JIMBO FALLON and held his own in 111.3 with the comment "the son of Stormin Fever should be formidable with Cal-bred maidens". He was formidable indeed at 6-1 as he broke tardily, was eased outside by Stewart Elliot to the 5-path down the backstretch, came 6-wide into the stretch and pulled away to an easy victory despite being a bit green in the stretch. He paid $15.40 to win and our Horse to Watch RIVER HOSS ran 2nd @ 10-1 with the exacta paying $52.10.
In the 6th race OUT OF PATIENCE won nicely after recording a Grade B workout in which he "responded extremely well, final furlong in a sharp 11.2, nice work for the recent claim". He paid $15.40 to win as well.
On Fri Mar 18 at SA we had 4 Horses to Watch running after scratches. 3 of them won, including MISS DOUBLE D'ORO in the 7th paying $23.00. In addition to 2 bet down favorites that won very easily, we also pushed EXUBERATE (GB) in the 1st that ran 2nd @ 11-1. We also pushed 7 winners out of 8 races in our Daily Clockers Report, although most of them ended up favorites on a pretty chalky day (except again MISS DOUBLE D'ORO). Still, as usual the Pick 5 paid pretty nicely @ $318.00.
The HR Daily Clocker Report on Big Cap Day Sat Mar 12 pushed 8 winners in the 11 races on the card. In the 5th race SEVENTH SENSE (TUR), with Grade B and "excellent" B+ works since raced and a B+ work before his debut, went wire to wire paying $17.00. The 2nd horse GIANT EXPECTATIONS had 2 "nice" Grade B- works @ 5-1 with the exacta paying $42.00. The 6th race featured another wire to wire winner, this time on the turf. WHAT A VIEW, with a Grade B work on the training track that was "much faster than given and a good work for the stakes winner", pulled away strongly paying $14.00 to win. In the 7th race DANZING CANDY, with a Grade B+ and 3 Grade B workouts, made the lead and beat the favorites in the San Felipe Stakes @ $13.00 to place himself strongly in the hunt for the Santa Anita Derby. The Pick 3 paid $340.00.
The 8th race went to the shipper from Fairgrounds BEACH PATROL with a "nice" Grade B work @ $5.40. The 9th went to KOBE'S BACK with a "very sharp" Grade B+ drill @ $6.00. The 10th race was won by MELATONIN, who recorded a slow half-mile maintenance drill in 51.3 with a comment from our clocker that he "was in a high gallop, never asked a drop...the recent allowance winner continues to look good". He rolled wire to wire @ 1 1/4 mile paying $34.60. The final race went to MIRAGE (IRE), with a recent Grade B- work in which she was "striding out well to the wire". She came from off the pace and ran them down to win paying $56.20. Nobody had all 6 winners leading to a nice carryover for Sunday.
On Sat Mar 5 in the 8th race SONGFORJOHNMICHAEL was coming off over a 2 year layoff as a Fit and Ready Lister with a Grade B+ "very nice work...who seems ready to fire off the long layoff" and a Grade B "reaching out strongly late, very good work". He broke a bit slowly, came even with his rivals midstretch and inched away for an easy above par rated win paying a whopping $44.40.
