Highlight Race Workouts
The Santa Anita Winter Meet is right around the corner with their traditional day after Christmas Opening Day on Fri Dec 26. Santa Anita will conduct continuous racing this year through Jun 28. HR will break the 6 months plus of racing into 2 meets for the convenience of subscription customers. Although there will be 2 days off from the 4 days per week racing on Apr 23 and 24 to continue the old Santa Anita/Hollywood Park schedule break, we will break the new SA Winter and Spring meets on March 29 to make the 2 meets more equal in total racing days. Therefore, the SA Winter Meet Subscription Plans are now available for purchase in your accounts for the period Dec 26, 2014 to Mar 29, 2015, comprising 56 racing days. Multiple payment plans are available.
We will have the same clocking crew working SA for the entire meet which has resulted in super high priced winners throughout 2014. As always our clockers place their comments in our data base the day after the actual workouts and we publish a weekly summary of all workouts for the past week that is included in Subscription Plan 1 and available for weekly purchase on Tuesday mornings. The depth and quality of our workout reporting and the quantity of coverage are simply the best in the business and still available for daily purchase at the lowest price in Southern California.
Our Horses to Watch list is taken from our outstanding Weekly Trip Notes and has been red hot recently at the Los Alamitos Winter Meet with horses from the Del Mar Fall and Santa Anita Fall meets. We had 8 winners from our HTW lists on the first 8 days of racing at LRC, including prices at $11.80, $9.80, $51.20 and $11.20.
Another monster Horse to Watch winner on Sat Dec 6 at Los Al. In race 8 HORSE LAUGH had been hurt by the race shape on turf at SA last month with the comment "has a better record on dirt". He took the short way home along the rail and scored at $51.20 on dirt at Los Al. He also had 2 nice works at SA between races with a Grade B and B-.
Nice Horse to Watch lister win on Fri Dec 5 at Los Alamitos. BAD JU JU broke slowly and rushed up in her first race. We suggested she "could do better with a more alert start next time". She indeed broke with her field and distanced them by over 9 lengths paying $11.20. In the 6th first time starter THE GOMPER, with a number of Grade B and B- works for Ellis, showed little speed but ran by the field to win by daylight paying $35.40.

Los Alamitos kicks off on Thursday with a 12 day meet from Thurs through Sun each of the next 3 weeks. It has what appears to be good quality racing with some super stakes during the meeting. We will cover the meet with our full set of reports, including the trip notes. Please go to your accounts to sign up for the subscription plans for the meet at dramatically reduced prices, as always. We will enter the meet with a full data bank of workouts from SA and DM and will have both of our clockers at SA preparing for the big SA meet as well as the shippers coming down the 605 freeway to Los Al.
It has been a super meet for us at Del Mar with fabulous information and a consistent racetrack that has allowed us to convert that info to very positive results. Judging by your response in purchasing the daily reports, our customers have had equally positive results. Thanks to all for your support. Onward to the new dirt track at DM for next year with the same dirt that was introduced at Los Al and Santa Anita, providing consistency throughout the So. Cal. racing circuit for the first time ever.
On Sat Nov 29 at Del Mar HR info produced 2 Horses to Watch and 2 Fit and Ready list winners, including MAGIC LILY in the 7th @ $17.60. In the 9th we pushed first time starter RATTATAPTAP with 2 Grade B+ and 3 Grade B works @ $13.40. Looking forward to the final day at DM Fall with the Pick 6 carryover.
On Sat Nov 15 at Del Mar we pushed a monster bomber in our Daily Clocker Report. SON OF WAR in the 4th race went from the 12 hole going a mile on turf and according to our Trip Notes had raced erratically in his first local race at SA. The tip off, however, were the 2 Grade B and one Grade B+ workouts since raced at SA in which he had demonstrated super ability while working in pedestrian times, just what we handicappers want to see, since the public can only try to evaluate the slow times on paper. On Nov 11 he worked 102.1 "looked really good again with Brice Blanc...should be ultra tough to beat with maidens on the grass next time". On Nov 4 he went 114.1 "looked really good, striding out well to the wire not asked at any time...This one had trouble in his local debut and seems to be sitting on a big effort vs. maidens on the turf next time". On Oct 16 he went 103.3 "had Blanc aboard for a much improved work, going off very, very slowly...finishing totally full of run...was very green in his local debut and should do much better next time, tab in a maiden grass race". SON OF WAR, with Brice Blanc aboard, circled the field into the stretch and ran them down, pulling off at the end paying $54.00. Not sure we can give a price horse better pushes than that.
We will have clockers present at Del Mar and at the off track training facility at Santa Anita during the meet.
Del Mar Fall Subscriptions are now available for purchase in your accounts under the Subscription tab.
Three nice winners on the opening day of Breeders Cup week for the HR clockers. On Wed Oct 29 CRUX won the 6th wire-to-wire, with a good Grade B- drill working with SEEKING THE SHERIF (a BC Sprint entrant), paying $14.40. The 7th went to the other Baffert PIMPERNEL, with 5 Grade B works, beating the monster HOPPERTUNITY, who had worked well, but seemingly was given a race as he waited forever at the back of the pace and was flying at the end in his 7 furlong combacker. PIMPERNEL paid $14.20. In the final race, the Monster of the Day showed up with his Grade B- workout since raced, as NOTORIUS, the son of Mike Willman's ill-fated sire McCann's Mojave, scored at $97.20. The pick 3 paid a rather paltry $1,094.50.
With one week to the Breeders Cup, HR clockers are firing on all cylinders. On Fri Oct 24 we pushed the winners of all 8 races, yet no one hit the Pick 6 which produced a carryover of just under $35,000. After the odds on favorite FAITH HOPE LOVE, with 3 Grade B- works, hung on to winner the opener, the prices began. In the 2nd GREELEY AWESOME with 3 B- workouts prior to last race, pulled away at the wire to win easily @ $12.80.
Starting the Pick 6 races, MISS MANDATE, with a nice recent Grade B- team drill, wired her foes to pay $12.20. The 4th went to SECRET WISHES, with a recent B- team drill, as well as 2 Grade B-'s prior to her last race, paying $12.40. The Pick 5 was closed out by INSPIRED WISDOM with 2 recent Grade B- drills to go with a nice Grade B in which "he picked it up strongly at the end with a final 1/8 in a very sharp 11.3". He paid $26.60. The Pick 5 paid $7,468.00 for $.50.
The 6th race went to LINDANTE with 3 recent Grade B- works with the comment "ran his best race down the hill and will likely try that course again". He did indeed and scored at $27.00. The 7th race went to SONGFORJOHNMICHAEL, with a recent Grade B- work and the highest HR last race performance rating by 4 lengths, paying a paltry $6.20. And the HR monster of the day showed up in the 8th and final race, as GREAT LOU, with a recent Grade B- team drill, pulling away to an easy victory paying a dazzling $54.80. The $.50 Pick 4 paid $5,996.05.
That's 6 races with winning mutuels from $12.20 to $54.80, all with Grade B- or better workouts. There should be some money to be made in that combination. A lot of meet-making scores cashed during the day.
On Thu Oct 23 we had several winners with the most impressive clocking accomplishment going to our set of works on the almost 6 year old first time starter COMIN'OFFTHEBENCH in the 4th race. She earned 2 B and one B+ workout grades along the way in Oct at SA with the comments "has impressed us in the a.m. and should be ready to fire first time out" and "has a lot of ability". She won by 6 lengths paying $9.40.
A great start to the new week on Thu and Fri Oct 16 and 17 for HR customers. On Fri in the 1st race, first time starter FOLLOW ME CREV with 4 Grade B- workouts for his debut, ran a nice race to the more experienced winner, finishing 2nd @ 11-1. Good workers won the 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th races at prices from $6.00 to $9.40, but the bet of the day was A P PEPPER in the 8th, with a Grade B and 3 Grade B-'s, in a $12.5K non winners of 2 race. The comebacker lagged far behind a fast pace and closed with a rush up the rail to win going away paying a super $35.00 to win.
On Thursday our Horses to Watch won the 1st and 5th races and the featured Cal Bred Allowance race was won by Fit and Ready lister AIR OF ROYALTY with a recent strong Grade B workout featuring a huge 34.1 closing 3/8, after some great workouts, including a Grade B+, preceding her comeback at Del Mar in which she tired. She showed some guts toughing out the win paying $23.20.
We have had a great start to the Santa Anita Autumn meet with Horses to Watch and Fit and Ready list winners in addition to nice prices on horses with our highest performance ratings.
However, on Sunday Oct 12 we really put one across from our clockers. In the 6th race, we caught a number of works on comebacker CACICA DULIMA that intrigued our clocker. On Oct 5 she worked 5 furlongs in 103.0 that on the surface looked awful. Our clocker gave her a B- Grade with the following comments: "worked very early in the a.m. and went much better than the very slow time, crawling the opening 3 furlongs then finishing very well under no urging, final 1/4 in 24.2. The comebacking maiden filly has worked much better this time around".
Her previous work on Sep 29 was a slow 6f drill judged a Grade C+ by our clocker, but with the comment that she "was not allowed to do anything at all, kept under a hold throughout, could be sneaky".
On Sep 21, CACICA earned a Grade B rating in a team drill in which she "sure looks good on the comeback".
She was placed in a turf sprint down the hill and blew up the toteboard, pulling away to win easily paying $108.20.
In addition to the monster bomber, we also pushed LITTLE JERRY in the 8th with 2 recent nice Grade B drills paying $19.00. In the 9th the only horse with decent drills was MATZOH BALL MAGIC with 5 good drills at Los Al before his last race off a long layoff. He aired paying $8.00. With a few other short priced winners, it certainly was a super day for the HR customers. As we will always agree, now all we have to do is bet all this good information correctly.
