Speed + Style = Victory at Big A


When it comes to early speed, there's notning like the variety on display in SoCal and in today's local feature, a secondary allowances/optional claiming at the hybrid distance of 6 1/2 furlongs, that mantle will be carried bya super sharp ship-in Lindz Winz (2-1).

After her most recent start, a sharp victory at this distance at Santa Anita, she returned in only 13 days to work a bullet half-mile for traner Barry Abrams, a sign of excellent conditiion after such as a taxing prior effort, especially for a filly.

Now she returns in the Rick Dutrow barn and benefits from a ground saving draw and switch to Ramon Dominguez, both factors suiting her stalking style perfectly. The stars appear aligned for a winning local debut for an improving 4-year-old flyer.

We're taking Lindz Winz to win with no price restrictions, boxing her in the exacta with the equally sharp Joonbi (4-1).

The Trip Is Key


Today's Grade 2 Beaumont is not the strongest field of this level we've seen, drawing only six horses, three of which can win on the Equiform scale, but that's the issue, too: These fillies are just not that fast. So, it's back to Handicapping 101. It appear that Sacristy (7-5), given his post, running style and race, is most likely to sit the perfect stalking trip.

Further, the race she exits, has turned into a super key race. To date, all three fillies to exit GUlfstream's Forward Gal Stakes have come back to win. Leading rider Julien Leparoux gets the call for Wayne Catalano.

Taking Sacristy to win, with no price restrictions, boxing her in the exacta with Gypsy Robin (7-2).

Running Totals: (1061) 326-208-157 Total Dollar Return: $2,248.60 [win selections only]
