Here is the other race, similar to the GG race on Thursday...Looks like OTE vs 21.3....The 2 and 3 have finished very close to each other in two previous tandems and look like the ones to beat. Los Bambinos will be running late too but probably too far back in the pack.....3-2 for me...
I noticed a couple of races the next two days that set up OTE. Here is a race at GG with several E types. The 3 and 4 are E's who also have won when they didn't get the lead. The 4 did that against a much faster 1C. The 5 looks perfect from the OTE side. I will take those 2 to win...
CALCULATOR grabbed 10 additional Kentucky Derby points, and a long-overdue maiden win, with a visually-impressive victory over seven overmatched rivals in last Saturday's Grade 3 Sham Stakes at Santa Anita.
Given the finalists, I don’t think anyone could say there was even one mildly surprising winner in the 17 equine and human Eclipse Awards announced Saturday night. In a 2014 racing season that had some controversy – the running of the Breeders’ Cup Classic and PETA’s unfounded allegations against Steve Asmussen, to name two matters that immediately come to m […]

The early demise of Summer Bird may yet prove regrettable. From his first start in March to his last in November, he never stopped improving, and had he not been injured, it seems highly likely that he would have been even better at 4.
Let’s say you’re a speed bettor – a handicapper who likes to play front-runners – and you’re analyzing the card at Fair Grounds. There are a few routes on the day, and you’re starting to zero in on your plays.
Despite the fact she has seven empty mares and has yet to decide which stallions to breed to this year, Joanne Nielsen has had an uplifting start to 2015. She is the breeder of Upstart, who won the Holy Bull (gr. II) Jan. 24.
Kaigun and jockey Corey Nakatani had the perfect first outing in the Grade 2 Seabiscuit Handicap at Del Mar on Nov. 28. On Saturday, Nakatani will have high expectations when he rides Kaigun in the $200,000 Arcadia Stakes at a mile on turf at Santa Anita.
Distinctiv Passion’s position in California’s sprint division is on the rise this winter. He may go global in a few months. On Saturday, Distinctiv Passion starts in the $200,000 Palos Verdes Stakes at six furlongs at Santa Anita, a race that could lead to a start in the $2 million Golden Shaheen for sprinters in Dubai on March 28.
The 2012 filly crop has been good to trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.

Hollendorfer entered five in the Grade 1 Las Virgenes; four will start – Majestic Presence, turf stakes wi […]
