"When you need to know which horse is ready to win"
Horse Racing Handicapping For Thoroughbreds
The weekend ending on Sun Jan 22 at SA produced a Fit and Ready list winner and 4 Horses to Watch (HTW) winners. Fri Jan 20 featured Itzel in the 5th race as the HR HTW lister at 7/2 morning line. She was bet down to 2-1 and paid $6.20 to win as she fought with determination when challenged approaching the wire. Sat Jan 21 provided 2 HTW winners and a F&R winner. In the 6th race, MITAD DEL MUNDO scored @ $12.80, and in the 10th race, HAWKER pulled the upset @ $16.80. The 1 1/2 mile stake race in the 8th race included Fit and Ready lister DUVET DAY (IRE) who stormed to the lead inside the 1/16th pole to score at a juicy $28.80. Sun Jan 22 provided the finishing touches on a great weekend in the 7th as HTW FORGIVING SPIRIT rebid in the stretch to pull away to a $9.80 triumph.
That's the way to start off the biggest meet of the year! It took a positive photo finish result, but the First Race on Opening Day at Santa Anita was won by HR's Fit and Ready lister ONE MORE BID paying $35.00 to win. His recent Grade B+ work included the comment: "went extremely well in this early a.m. five furlong move...responding well in 59.0, final 1/4 in 23.2, a very good work for the recent maiden winner, who could be seen Opening day in a three-year-old stakes and seems to be improving quickly". Add in recent Grade B- working horses BLETCHLEY PARK in the 2nd, DICEY MO CHARA (GB) in the 3rd, SMART CODE (with new blinkers) in the 5th and Grade B worker FAUSTIN in the 4th, and you have an easy Pick 5 worth $10,790.70 to begin the meet! In case you needed an additional push to use SMART CODE in the 5th @ $12.60, he was an HR Horses to Watch lister. Another HTW, LA DEUXIEME ETOILE, scored in the 7th race @ $15.00.
I hope everyone had a successful Del Mar Fall season and are looking forward to the coming Santa Anita season with the same enthusiasm as the rest of us at Handicappers Report. 2022 was indeed a highly successful year for all of our information and we expect 2023 to be equal or better with our same top notch contributors on board. Workouts at Santa Anita have continued during the lull in racing in our coverage between Del Mar and Santa Anita, giving us a strong database of workouts to start the winter season at Santa Anita.
Thanks again to all of our regular customers for their fantastic support over the years, with wishes for a highly successful Santa Anita Season. As in past years we will be issuing monthly subscriptions to break up the long 6 month Santa Anita meet. The Dec Jan Subscriptions are available now in your User accounts.
Sun Nov 20 was a good day for HR information. Our reports contained 2 Horses to Watch from our Weekly Trip Notes Report and one Fit and Ready lister from our Weekly Workouts Summary Report. All 3 won starting with HTW ROCK THE BOURBON in the first race. 'BOURBON also had a decent Grade B- workout that was missed off the worktab to enhance his charm, as he won and paid $20.00. HTW CAROLE LOMBARD won the 3rd paying $7.40, and Fit and Ready lister PHENOM won the 7th, bet down from a 7/2 morning line to a $5.80 mutuel. That was certainly not all as our 2 Grade B worker won the 8th race and "decent" Grade B- workers won the rest of the races (2,4,5,6 and 9) to complete a sweep of the card, including FIFTY CENT DOLLARS in the 9th paying $45.80 to win. The early pick 5 paid $1,679.45 and the late pick 5 paid $737.25 with the place pick all paying $11,504.60. A little side trophy went to the exacta in the 7th coupling PHENOM to MANORELLI with a decent Grade B- work @ 32-1 paying $122.20. A rather nice day's work at Bing Crosby's track.

The SA Autumn meet continues to be very successful with the recent weekend producing several nice winners. On Sat Oct 29, the 4th race was won by STRAIGHT NO CHASER with 3 recent nice Grade B works paying $6.80 and the 7th was won by CABO SPIRIT with 2 Grade B works paying $7.40. Our Fit and Ready listers won the 3rd, GOING GLOBAL, and 9th, AMY C (GB). AMY C paid $9.40, winning like a good thing, and the double to RHEA MOON (IRE) with a nice Grade B work paid 63.20.

On Sun Oct 30 our Horses to Watch, TAMING THE TIGRESS and BIG BEAUTY completed a cold deck exacta in the 5th and SECRETS TOLD won the 9th paying $24.60 as a Fit and Ready lister.
Super start to the Santa Anita Autumn meet for HR info with Horse to Watch I KNOW CASH FLOW winning the 4th race on Opening Day paying $17.80. On Sat Oct 1 we had 2 nice Horses to Watch winners WHATMAKESSAMMYRUN in the 7th at $38.00 to win and KANTHARA in the 10th paying $13.00. On the weekend we had 6 HTW/F&R winners and 3 seconds. It doesn't get much better than that, especially with the prices.
The final weekend of the Del Mar Meet was like a microcosm of what Handicapper's Report information provided for the whole summer. The top selections from our Trip Note Reports, the Horses to Watch lists, produced 3 winners, COAST OF ROAN on Friday in Race 8 paying $12.20, GAS ME UP on Sunday in Race 5 paying $12.40 and WEEGEE in the final race paying $19.20. The best workers for each week in our Weekly Workout Summary Reports, the Fit and Ready lists, repeated in our Daily Clocker Reports each racing day, gave us 3 winners as well, with not as robust prices, but nice singles, AMERICAREDWHITEBLU @ $3.60 on Friday, and on Saturday, SPEED BOAT BEACH @ $6.40 and KITTY KITANA (GB) @ $4.40.
Opening Day at Del Mar continued the HR super string of nice-priced winners. The first race exacta went to 2 Fit and Ready listers at a relatively short price as BREAKFAST RIDE took the lead and couldn't be caught on a fast pace paying $7.40. The favorite AMERICAREDWHITEBLU completed the exacta. The rest of the card supplied some much better prices as UNCONTROLLABLE circled the field in the 5th race to win going away paying $11.20 to win. She had a recent DM Grade B work in which she "stayed close to a very classy older male and seems a talented sort". In the 6th race which had a glut of speed signed up, closer BELLAMORE, with 2 Grade B- "decent" workouts, made the last run to pay $47.60 to win. In the 7th, ANACAPA had a recent Grade B- "decent" work and a Grade B- work prior to last race with the comment "good work, the best we have seen from the unraced Tiznow filly, who seems to be trending the right way". She took the lead and held late paying $25.40 to win. Our Fit and Ready lister KEYCHAIN GIRL ran 2nd at 3-1 with the exacta paying $52.50. In the 9th race, comebacker KID CORLEONE had improving works with the last being a Grade B- "decent" drill. He crushed the field wire to wire paying $16.40 to win. In the final race, our Horse to Watch CLUTCH HITTER stretched out off a lackluster debut to win decisively paying $13.20. Altogether a fabulous way to kick off the Del Mar meet.
The Del Mar Summer meet kicks off this year on Fri Jul 22 and runs until Sun Sep 11. The subscriptions for DM are available now in your accounts under the Subscriptions Tab. We are coming into this meet as hot as we have ever been, especially our clocker reports. Please read below to see the latest results.
The final week of Santa Anita racing provided another set of great winners from the HR reports, completing a super entire month of June for our info. There were 5 winners from our Horses to Watch lists and 3 winners from our Fit and Ready lists over the 3 days, including PATRON D'ORO in the 9th race on Sun Jun 19 paying $17.20 and CARPE VINUM paying $9.60 in the 7th race on Fri Jun 17.
The final 5 races of the SA meet included BREAKPOINT (CHI) on Sun Jun 19 in the 7th with a Grade B- "decent work for the comebacking East Coast invader", paying $20.20, STANDING O in the 8th with 4 decent Grade B- works paying $21.80, the HTW PATRON D'ORO @ $17.20 in the 9th, AFTER MIDNIGHT in the 10th with 5 decent Grade B- works paying $15.00, and in the final race the favorite HONG KONG HARRY (IRE) with 3 very nice Grade B workouts paying $6.00. The FINAL PICK 5 OF THE SANTA ANITA MEET PAID $8,465.95, WITH 5 HR PUSHES FROM OUR CLOCKERS REPORT AND HORSES TO WATCH LISTS.
We also pushed the winner of the 6th race ELENIAK with a Grade B and 3 Grade B- works paying $4.40, giving us the final pick 6 as well, but it only paid $6,656.80.
There were plenty of other winners from our clockers on the other 2 days of the final weekend, including Sat Jun 18 Race 2 CINNAMON CAT Grade B $11.60, Race 3 STONE SILENT with 4 decent Grade B- works "appears an early type and is a must follow" @ $8.00, Race 5 MISS MENSA decent Grade B- @ $19.00, and Race 10 LIBERAL (IRE) with 3 decent Grade B- @ $15.80.
Finally, a nice push on Fri Jun 17 in Race 4 for ECONOMICAL with a Grade B- with the comment "not bad for the maiden claimer, who has been eliminated in both of his starts and may be better than shown". He paid $17.20. All great supporting information, but paling relative to our final send off for the meeting in the final pick 5 on Sunday.
HR has been closing out the Santa Anita meet with a strong set of Horses to Watch list and Clocker Fit and Ready list winners. Despite the relatively small field sizes, our barrage of pushes that keyed Pick 5 and Pick 4 wins have resulted in very positive returns in the last 2 weeks.
On Sun Jun 12, we had 6 total F&R and HTW winners out of the 8 on the card. It all started with F&R winners in the 2nd with very strong pushes on bet down AGENCY @ $6.60 and in the 7th on AMERICAN ADMIRAL @ $9.60. HTW winners included favorites OCTOPUS in the 3rd, VALIANCY in the 5th and COUNTESS ROSINA (IRE) in the 8th, as well as UNDER THE STARS in the 9th paying $9.20. Another Grade B working favorite AIR FORCE RED won the 6th. We almost swept the card.
On Sat Jun 11, HTW BUSKER ALLIE flew from off the pace to win the 10th at $6.20. Several favorite workout pushes won other races and STORMING LADY with 2 recent decent works won the 4th paying $13.20.
On Sun Jun 5, we started our day with CONTINENTAL DIVIDE in the 2nd, with a recent Grade B- "under restraint while tugging early...striding out to the wire", winning and paying $45.00.

On Fri Jun 3 in the 4th, debuting MISSED CALL, with 2 Grade B works including one with the comment "final 1/4 in 23.3, a good work...should hit hard for a high priced maiden tag".

Horse to Watch CLADDAGH CURE won the 8th race and paid $8.60.

The HTW and F&R winners keep coming, if not what we would like to see in prices with the short fields. On Sat Apr 2, we had 2 F&R listers, SUMTER in the 3rd and SHAAZ in the 8th. BEEF WINSLOW won the 1st as a HTW lister. While the prices were poor, it certainly doesn't hurt to have single pushes in the horizontal bets. On Fri Apr 1, we had one HTW winner in the 4th, MO CONNELLY, and a rather nice HTW exacta in the 8th, with ROSE MADDOX paying $21.60 to win and ALL DIALED IN running 2nd with the exacta paying $32.20.
Another nice weekend of winners for the HR Horses to Watch and Fit and Ready lists ending on Sun Mar 27. All 3 F&R listers scored on Sun as well as the sole HTW. In the 2nd race INDULGE had a B+ workout in which the shipper "looked super...a very good word for comebacker, who has been gelded off the layoff...seems ready to fire big off the bench". He paid $10.20 to win. ALLABOUTTHEMONEY paid $7.00 to win in the 4th and SET SAIL paid $6.00 in the 6th with ONE MORE BID, who had a Grade B+ workout since, and before, his last race finishing 2nd @ 15-1. The exacta paid $30.90. The 5th race was won by our lone HTW AUGUSTA MELODY paying $6.40. A bet on him was supported by a decent Grade B- workout since raced.
The SA track seems to be back to supporting better correlation between the morning workouts and the afternoon races.
On Sat Mar 26 F&R lister won paying $4.80 in the 2nd and HTW's GOING TO VEGAS in the 7th and CALIFORNIA STREET in the 8th both finished 2nd. On Fri Mar 25, double HTW and F&R lister VANZZY won nicely and paid $7.60, and our other HTW JUST ABOUT ENOUGH ran 2nd in the 1st race.
In the 1st race on Sun Mar 20, our Horse to Watch ABHITA produced a last to first run to win @ a bet down $8.00. Running 2nd was BARRISTER'S RIDE with a pair of Grade B- works since raced @ 7/2. The exacta paid $17.00. In the 8th race PARK AVENUE, the HR Fit and Ready lister with 3 Grade B works since raced and a B+ prior to last race wired the field paying $13.80. Running on 2nd was our HTW NEW HEAT @ 14-1, with the exacta returning $77.20.
On Sat Mar 19, we began the day in the 1st with a nice win by the comebacking Grade B worker SHES'A PERFECTLADY paying $16.60. After AFFABLE won the 5th race with 2 Grade B works paying $6.60, FREEDOM LASS won the 6th off a nice Grade B and 2 Grade B- works, in which "she finished well" in all 3 workouts. She paid $14.60 to win and the double paid $65.20. Finishing 2nd in the race was HTW GALLOVIE (GB) @ 11-1 with the exacta paying $84.00.
On Fri Mar 18 in the 2nd race, SIDEWAYS SUANCES, with 5 recent Grade B- workouts (with $20k maidens B- works can be decent indicators of good form), kicked away in upper stretch to score at $10.60. She also had the highest dirt route HR rating in the field. Generally, bottom maidens tend to run the same race each time out and are quite predictable in comparing ratings. HTW HOLLYWOODHELLRAISR finally made it to the winners circle in the 5th race.
On Fri Mar 11 in the 6th race, Fit and Ready lister POP POP'S DREAM ran 2nd @ 11-1 with a "vastly improved Grade B work" to the Grade B working EXCELERINA (IRE). The exacta paid $14.20. In the 8th race, Horse to Watch EVENING SUN (GB) won with a recent Grade B workout. We had said in the trip notes from his last race that the distance was too far for him. He shortened up and scored at $9.00.
Another double qualifier, Fit and Ready and Horses to Watch lister, won at SA on Sat Feb 26 in the 8th race. ELECTOR, drew off in a contentious field to win by open lengths paying $13.40.
On Fri Feb 18, the only Horses to Watch lister of the day, BENDER, was asked to run 1 1/8 miles in the 3rd race. We wanted him to run farther than the mile race he had returned in from his short vacation. In a B- workout on Feb 12 we also added in his comment that it was a "decent work for the gelding, who should be at his best at nine furlongs or further". He was indeed at his best scoring at $67.60 to win.
On Sat Feb 12, our Fit and Ready list contributed two winners on the card, EQUILOVE (IRE) in the 3rd @ $5.20 and COVER ME UP in the 8th @ $10.60. Not great prices, but with the small, marginally competitive fields, singles are important for the horizontal bets. We did have decent winners with Grade B- works in CHARGES DROPPED in the 1st @ $9.80 and STOIC LUNA in the 2nd @ $16.80.
On Fri Feb 11, we had a bit of a rarity with an exacta consisting of a HTW and a F&R. In the 3rd, the winner was a bet down HTW SMUGGLER'S RUN @ $5.20. The Fit and Ready lister MOOSE MITCHELL ran 2nd @ 13-1 with the exacta paying $20.30.
On Sat Jan 29, we had a nice day from our Fit and Ready and Horses to Watch lists at Santa Anita. In the 4th, FORBIDDEN KINGDOM scored decidedly as a Fit and Ready lister at $9.80. In the 5th race HTW SHE'S GOT A WAY made the same looping effort in the turn that put her on the list, but continued her run this time to win going away @ $11.40. In the 9th our 2 HTW listers ran 1-2 with PAMMY'S READY paying $14.20 to win and DUVET DAY (IRE) dead heating for 2nd @ 5-1 with the exacta paying $20.90.
At Gulfstream Park in the Pegasus Cup, it appeared our Fit and Ready lister STILLETO BOY was going to finish 2nd for a nice exacta @ 26-1 with a huge move on the final turn, but was outrun at the wire by the favorite.
Despite the craziness of the opening weekend of SA and the threatening weather, the HR clockers produced 1 nice price per day of horses from the Fit and Ready list. On Sunday Jan 26, EXPRESS TRAIN won the 6th paying $16.40, and on Monday Jan 27 VANTASTIC closed from the clouds to win the 5th race turf sprint at $12.00.
