Pure Blush ready to rumble off the claim

Amount Bet:
Amount Cashed:


Friday's 5th race (3:03pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is a Starter Allowance event for fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 24 feet). 

#8 Pure Blush (4-1) was nabbed out of her last by quality trainer Peter Miller and he might have purchased her for turf. She finished 8th of 11 in her lone turf start but that was a downhill sprint (off slow, shuffled) and she is 0-for-3 around one turn. In contrast, she has been right there in a trio of routes and dam has tossed a turf winner. The above average Keeneland sales grad dons the hood and should be within hailing distance throughout.

#7 Cavalletta (5-2) is 1-for-14 and might be best used underneath. She hit the board in all four turf outings and can move forward on the surface switch in her 2nd start off the shelf.

The Plays:

$12 to win #8

$11 Exacta 8-7

$1 Trifecta 8/ALL/7 ($7)

Sometimes it's the opposite, cognibene>>The horse is off form and the trainer believes he can turn it around.
interesting the myths that become truths becaue no one ever asks for proof.
To T.V.: I do not believe that a horse will get "better" just because it is claimed. I do believe that the horse is claimed because the trainer believes the horse is at his peak form and may win a race and the possibility of cashing a bet (if he is a betting trainer) before someone else does. The best trainers are especially sharp with this 6th sense. i.e. Bobby Frankle. Hope this helps!!
new impact values from 2012 show that "trainer change since last race" have an impact value near 1.00, which is kind of like saying "Makes no difference."
Some one exlain something to me: WHY oh why is a horse suddenly expected to get much better after a claim. Unless the new trainer wants to sit "in jail" 30 days he/she has to move the animal UP and often when you collect an animal that someone was willing to lose, for a price, you get all the headaches too (many of which you were not aware of before the claim)> I worked with a very good claiming trainer and even though he did not claim often he claimed well and usually the new addition stayed in the bard at least three weeks for him to learn all about him before attempting to race him again...So what is this myth that a recent claim will inevitably improve...I see NO LOGIC for the assumption whatsoever.
before scratches, contenders appear to be: 7 Cavalletta 5 Fluxx 4 Born Lucky 8 Pure Blush and you are dreaming to get 4/1 more like 5/2
I agree: I also like the #8 Pure Blush at only 4/1 or better. Will bet to win and take exactas with the 8/4,9,7,5. Good luck!!
