This Monday is the big race of the Holiday Season, the Malibu at Santa Anita.  It is the last race and is a big race.  My pick may surprise some people.  In this one, I am taking the Bob Baffert horse... Hoorayforhollywood.  Did you think I was going to pick The Factor?!  Now I am looking at this horse and seeing a three year old who could shoot up into the stakes ranks, especially after a close second in the Delta Mile.  This horse has the skills to win.  A fast horse who likes to put on the pressure, Hoorayforhollywood is just great.  Having struggled with the distance at a mile, and then with the speed at 6.5 furlongs, 7 furlongs might to a good distance.  Also the track bias at Santa Anita at 6.5 to 7 furlong distance the mid to outside posts and stalkers.  Hoorayforhollywood is a stalker and has a mid post.  We will have to wait and see.  Until then, I am Mike from horseracingstation.wordpress.com, good night, and Merry Christmas!

$15 across the board on #6 Hoorayforhollywood.
Rothko is going to win this race. He has plenty more then his last two big runs.

Looking at Associate, he seems as if he will make the distance, but he will have trouble keeping in it the whole race. In the last race, a claimer, he ran a 7 furlong race in 1:22, finishing in 1st by 8 lengths. However, in the 7 furlong races that his competitors are racing at, he is slow by a few seconds. May not look like much, but it is in this race. Going back to Smash, he only raced at 6 1/2 furlongs and below. In his few wins, he just barely came away. In a 7 furlong race, he could let any lead slip away in the extra 100-200 meters. Going back to my horse, Hoorayforhollywood has been getting caught in second by a neck/nose in the past three races. However, these were at 1 mi. At the 7 furlong distance, he is leading, or in second just slightly, leaving a chance for a nice win in the Malibu today.

The idea of 'class" is as nebulous today as it always was. Only one to come close to it realized that mere man made class (stks, allow, claimer) have really NOTHING TO DO WITH IT...Quinn's Class of the Field nails it
