Highlight Race Workouts
Reports for Sat Nov 22 are now up. On travel which caused the delay.
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.

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.
