FIRST RACE: Here we go, another summer from this beautiful seaside oval, and things begin as they always do, right in front of the grandstand with a 16,000 claimer at a mile. This is a wide open group, however, it’s also a race which screams of mediocrity, leading many to believe it’s a competitive race, when in actuality. it’s really not. Sure, there’s many directions to go, but NOT as a result of positive attributes, and as we often remind members - RACES AND HORSES SHOULD BE BACKED BASED ON POSITIVE ATTRIBUTES AND NOT AS A RESULT OF WHO’S THE BEST OF THE WORST, OR IN THE CASE OF THIS ONE, WHO’S THE BEST OF THE “AVERAGE.” In the end though, we CAN make a couple of cases for each of our choices. Top selection would be CARVILLE (#1). As we often remind members, many of those Northern California races at the cheaper levels, are just as good or better as the lower claimers in Southern California, often consisting of hard trying sorts properly placed, compared to regressing sorts moving down the class ladder. This one’s run in three very different scenarios in recent months, beginning with that turf route three races back, followed by a main track sprint at Santa Anita, and most recently, a synthetic route he won, just over a month ago, and speaking of that win last time out, the horse he beat returned to win a 20,000 claimer at Pleasanton for Jeff Bonde, while he also defeated a runner from the Hollendorfer and Wong barns respectively, which we mention to reflect, it wasn’t a bad group at all. Antongeorgi down here to ride off and on, and you can bet he’d be thrilled with winning the first race of the Meet in his hometown (went to high school 10 minutes from the finish line here). PAPPOU (#4) is playable. He broke his maiden 14 months ago when Sadler clearly thought he had some ability, and though they’re obviously not as high on his these days, notice that back in April when dropped drastically, he responded with a win, running just fine at Los Al last time out, and now today, stringing races together for the first time in over a year, telling us he’s healthy, which at least opens the door to a good effort, with a risk-reward worthy of a look.
Hot / Cold Race Trends: Opening Day
Win Contenders (order of preference): 1-4-3
X Out Runners (eliminating on the win end): 2
3 Above Board - Glatt is usually pretty sharp with placing his newly acquired runners, and we certainly like Drayden up (but you knew that already).
2 Crown the Kitten - Gus Headley claims him for 32,000, can’t get a response from him, and now cuts the tag in half while moving to a surface in which, he clearly was deemed not wanting early in his career?
7 Just Kidding - The last time he was out at Santa Anita back in May, he came home in :50.4, and that’s not gonna translate well over this more tiring surface today.
