Los Alamitos Race Course opinions for Saturday, Dec. 13

Race 3 – LRC

#2 Mon Mousse (8-1)

Our Eyes: This 3-year-old gelding when wire-to-wire on the dirt at Sacramento and we think that is what trainer Quinn Howey will have in mind in this spot for jockey Brice Blanc.

==

Race 8 – LRC

#3 Danette (10-1)

Our Eyes: This daughter of Curlin finished fifth in the Bredders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies after a tough start. She has proven to love going long and will try to turn the tables on Take Charge Brandi and Feathered, both of whom finished ahead of her in that race.

Breeders' Cup, Horse racing, Santa Anita

Updated Santa Anita/Breeders’ Cup picks for Saturday, Nov. 2

Call it what you will, but watch the first few dirt races on Saturday to see if the speed bias continues on Santa Anita’s main track.

FIRST RACE: 1. Richies Party Girl, 2. Love in the Desert, 3. Mr. Cactus, 4. Jedi Mind Trick. LONG SHOT: Test Ride.

Just throw out RICHIES PARTY GIRL’s last race at Keeneland because she want no part of two turns. She returns to a turf sprint here down the hill. Trainer Wesley Ward thought enough of her to send her to France in August and she finished a strong fourth in Grade III company.

==

SECOND RACE: 1. Flashback, 2. Anillo, 3. Zeewat. LONG SHOT: Tour Guide.

==

THIRD RACE: 1. Purim’s Dancer, 2. Pontchatrain, 3. Sky High Gal, 4. Judy In Disguise. LONG SHOT: Ultrasonic.

ULTRASONIC IS SCRATCHED.

==

BREEDERS’ CUP RACES START HERE

FOURTH RACE: 1. Concave, 2. Secret Compass, 3. Artemis Agrotera, 4. Sweet Reason. LONG SHOT: Ria Antonia.

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies is a tough spot for this 2-year-old filly CONCAVE, but she is a daughter of Colonel John and we love Colonel John’s offspring on the stretchout. She has been away since finishing third in the Del Mar Debutante on Aug. 31, but it appears she has been working quite nicely for trainer Doug O’Neill. She has been given time to fill out and we think she will relish the two turns on the dirt.

==

==
