OPENING DAY FULL CARD ANALYSIS

By Matt Dinerman

Race 1: #5 Union Bliss attempts routing for the first time and takes a minor drop in class. He is by Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags and a half sibling to 2012 El Camino Real Derby winner Daddy Nose Best, who earned over $900,000 in his career and was a multiple graded stakes winning router. Two other siblings won routing. Adds blinkers and the class of the race; should be tough if he takes to the added ground. Although 0 for 11, #4 Wild Wager has finished as the runner up in his last two races. In both starts, he didn’t lose by much. If anybody beats our top pick, it’s likely him. Although #6 Dreamed It finished well behind Wild Wager three weeks ago, we feel he can improve making his second career start routing and could be best of the rest.

Race 2: #5 My Friend Tony takes an extremely steep and suspicious drop in class while sporting a light work pattern. The problem with trying to beat him? He is a front runner in a race that lacks early pace. If he has anything left in the tank, he should beat this field. #1 Continental Union scored a come-from-behind victory in his most recent afternoon appearance and beat two next out winners in the process. He’s eligible to run his very best in this race, the third start in his current form cycle. #4 Klay Nation goes from a route to a sprint after a failed attempt at two turns. Although inconsistent, he’ll be fit cutting back in distance. A much better sprinter than router, his best effort outruns his odds.

Race 3: #2 Zero Bucks Given was running out of his conditions in his last two starts and gets back to a non-2-lifetime condition here. Cross out his last race; he competed over a bullring track at Ferndale and blew the turns. Class relief should help and he figures to get a good trip off a projected solid pace. #5 Colonel Mike is another who gets class relief and will be rolling from off the pace battle. Last time, he finished ahead of the morning line favorite in this race, #1 Minsky, who pressed and faded from the rail post position in his first start in Northern California. Although he draws the rail again, we’re thinking he changes tactics this time and lets a couple speed horses go.

Race 4: #6 Smiling Melanie is a trip play. After a solid runner up finish behind a Southern California class dropper two starts ago, she suffered a traffic-filled stretch run in her most recent start. Clear sailing today likely means she’ll be right there contending for the win in this heat. #5 Remember Sue faces significantly lighter company after a third-place finish (though well beaten) against maiden special weight company. This is a good spot for her to break her maiden. #4 Marando Pass has been locking horns with decent sprinters and just hasn’t been quite good enough to win. She drops in class and tries routing for the first time. By stakes winning router Tamarando, she should be fine with the added ground.

Race 5: #5 Miss Lady Ann is 4 for 6 on the Tapeta surface. She lost her first race in six starts last time out against first level allowance foes and competes against significantly easier in this starter allowance. Trainer Blaine Wright is taking advantage of this specialized condition that Miss Lady Ann qualifies for; should be tough. #6 Draw Me exits the Bear Fan Stakes, where she was well beaten at an astronomical price (95-1). Although 0 for 11 this year, she has hit the board against allowance company numerous times. Major threat to the top pick. #1 Sing in the Wind possesses a gradually improving pattern heading into her third start off a layoff. In her last two starts, she sat well behind and made-up significant ground. We’re hoping she can sit in midpack rather than as a deep closer this time, with the thought being that she won’t have as much to do down the lane. Look at past starts and you’ll see she has shown the ability to sit in midfield. Her “A” effort outruns her odds.

Race 6: #6 Shes Bout a Mover was an impressive maiden winner in Southern California for trainer Simon Callaghan and returned to finish a well-beaten fourth behind next out Grade I winner Eda. If she takes to the Tapeta, her class will help her prevail. #3 Lady’s Sermon won at first asking in May. After that effort, she was turned out for seven and a half months. She returns with a solid work pattern and it’s worth noting her dam, Lady Railrider, was a multiple stakes winner that has been a terrific producer. Also interesting to see jockey Frank Alvarado hops off our third pick and stablemate, stakes placed #2 Tam’s Little Angel, to ride Lady’s Sermon. #2 Tam’s Little Angel is improving in every start and should run effectively at this first level allowance condition.

Race 7: #7 Power Surge showed plenty of early speed, lost the lead at the quarter pole, but continued to fight on bravely and came up a length short in her career debut. Her conditioner, Blaine Wright, is terrific with maiden second time starters, and we project she will take a step forward with a race under her belt. #2 Vincero Grande is another that might run better in lifetime start number two. In her first career race on November 6, she sat well off the speed before rallying strongly for second. The winner of that maiden race, Tam’s Little Angel (see Race 6), returned to run third in the Golden Gate Debutante. #8 Pray to an Angel only finished three-quarters of a length behind our top pick last time as the favorite that day. Legit contender.

Race 8: #5 All My Hope cuts back from a route to a sprint. Before the aforesaid route, she won a pair of sprint races. She’ll be super fit cutting back in distance; a logical win candidate. #7 Canam Gal takes a much-needed drop-in class after a pair of off-the-board finishes against first level allowance foes. She is well spotted for a competitive run. #6 Ramoncita Light has won her last four races in on the Golden Gate Tapeta. She possesses form too sharp to ignore.

Race 9: #8 Murphys Tiger, by Grade I winning sprinter Smiling Tiger out of stakes winner Youtheprizeandi, is a half sibling to Golden Gate allowance winner and stakes placed sprinter Daddysprize. One turn is definitely in the pedigree. He sports a trio of bullet works leading up to his career debut, and trainer Tim McCanna employs go-to rider Frank Alvarado for the ride. Maybe Murphy’ can run? #1 Swimmingwithsharks has settled for second in his last three starts at this level; he is knocking on the door for a victory. #6 Great Story possesses a flashy work tab leading up to his first start for the Jonathan Wong barn. A Kentucky-bred by Mizzen Mast, his only career afternoon appearance resulted in an off the board finish one year ago, finishing behind eventual Grade I winner Rock Your World and three other next-out winners.

Race 10: #2 Long Lance earned a career high speed figure when he “freaked” on the Tapeta two starts ago. His last start, which was his first-time routing and career debut on turf, resulted in a three-quarter length loss. With a route race in the books and transferring back to Tapeta, improvement is very possible. #8 Tom’s Surprise ran a terrific race on December 12 against an above average starter allowance group, sitting off the pace before finishing with great energy and pulling away from his competition. The only concern is him wheeling back quickly; this will be his third start in a month. Nonetheless, a repeat of his last start makes him the one to beat. #6 Gallant Warren has finished as the runner up in his last two races (both at this level) while earning honorable speed figures for the level. Although he’s more of an exotics use than a win candidate for me, he must be respected.

Race 11: We’ll end the day with a price pick. #3 Earnest clearly enjoys the Tapeta and comes off a second-place finish to Orczy, who wheeled back to win his next start in impressive fashion. Earnest is projected to receive a good “stalk and pounce” trip, and his best speed figures are good enough to be competitive against this field. #6 Linfield drops in class for leading trainer Jonathan Wong. He’s seen better days, but he fits with this group. #7 Sunny Spot doesn’t win often but can get a piece of the pie with his best effort.
