Johnny Love's Sunday Canterbury Park line

  • Updated: June 7, 2014 - 8:43 PM

Post time: 12:45 p.m. Best bet: Gratzie (4th race). Best play: 50 cent-Pick 4, 3rd race, (All/5/3,4/1,3,4,5,8) $50.

1 300 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Maiden claiming $6,250. Purse: $7,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Ima Gold Medal Jet (Goodwin, Pride)124/8-1

2: Corona Oak Tree (Smith, Hardy)126/7-2

3: Panther Purrfect (Olesiak, Johnson)124/5-1

4: Eyesa Playmate (Swiontek, Livingston)124/6-1

5: La Countess Barbi (Luark, Ibarra)126/4-1

6: My Streakin Runaway (Frink, Miller)124/6-1

7: Furriddle (Martinez, Martinez)126/8-1

8: Extreme Chick (Smith, Olmstead)126/9-2

CORONA OAK TREE broke awkwardly last out and should move forward with clean start. PANTHER PURRFECT drops a bit in class after failing to fire in this year’s debut. First-time starter EXTREME CHICK might have found the right field to get win at first asking.

2 300 yards. 2-year-olds. Maiden claiming $12,500. Purse: $9,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Ls Little Effort (Olesiak, Johnson)122/12-1

2: The Forbidden City (Smith, Olmstead)122/2-1

3: Izzy Kane (Goodwin, Pride)122/5-1

4: Swaggernaut (Smith, Clay)122/6-1

5: Royal This Day (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)122/4-1

6: Jumpn the Moon (Luark, Olmstead)122/10-1

7: Beautifulish (Martinez, Harris)122/12-1

8: A Mightee Good Time (Eikleberry, Hardy)122/5-1

In a field full of questions, I’ll give the slight nod to THE FORBIDDEN CITY, who gave the best effort in first attempt of the four runners with a race under their belt. IZZY KANE and A MIGHTEE GOOD TIME share the marquee for best chance to score first time out.

3 400 yards. 3-year-olds. Derby. Purse: $15,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Jakes No Fool (Luark, Olmstead)124/8-1

2: Midnight Teller (Smith, Olmstead)124/9-2

3: Racin Thru Fire (Eikleberry, Charette-Hill)124/12-1

4: Whata Classy Man (Silva, Wessels)124/4-1

5: Good Eye (Smith, Harris)124/10-1

6: Lil Chicks Corona (Olesiak, Johnson)124/15-1

7: Seis the Royal Cash (Suarez Ricardo, Hanson)124/9-2

8: Dirt Road Queen (Martinez, Harris)124/10-1

9: Readi to Be Famous (Swiontek, Hanson)124/8-1

10: Cr Strawflyn Bux (Shaw, Goodsell)124/5-1

DIRT ROAD QUEEN began her introduction here with a win two weeks back even after a bumpy start. MIDNIGHT TELLER finished strong to get up for the victory at last asking. JAKES NO FOOL too won last out, but it was last year; training well coming in.

4 6 furlongs. 3-year-olds. Allowance optional claiming $50,000. Purse: $28,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Ubetcha Ima Bumper (Olesiak, Roberts)122/5-1

2: Sammie’s Touch (Martin, Heitzmann)120/4-1

3: Sweet Sammie (Eikleberry, Bravo)120/10-1

4: She Can Ski (Hamilton, Bravo)120/8-1

5: Gratzie (Canchari, Robertson)122/2-1

6: Sky and Sea (Butler, Rhone)122/9-5

GRATZIE is strictly the one to catch and beat after her 11-length margin victory last race. Best bet on the card. SKY AND SEA also won by 11-length margin drawing away from the field but will have to step it up a notch to keep up with top pick. SAMMIE’S TOUCH is my off-the-pace selection in case total meltdown occurs with our top two speedballs.

5 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $6,250. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Dropped Call (Canchari, Bethke)123/15-1

2: Lil’ Gizmo (Brown, Cole)123/12-1

3: City Kid (Escobar, Rhone)123/2-1

4: Rodster (Ordaz, Silva)123/9-5

5: Brassy Touch (Hernandez, Ibarra)123/6-1

6: Miss Taylor K (Goodwin, Kirby)123/5-1

7: Not a Girlie Girl (Keith, Hanson)123/8-1

CITY KID had the win in her hand but lost nice lead at the end and landed in the second spot. Drop in level and lone speed makes her top billing. RODSTER had late surge for show money last out in first attempt on real dirt and merits respect with second effort. NOT A GIRLIE GIRL ran a dull effort in first race of the season but deserves another chance.

6 1 mile 70 yards. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $19,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Flaxen Maiden (Canchari, Brinson)123/7-2

2: Correspondence (Goodwin, McFadden)123/20-1

3: Julie’s Memory (Keith, Biehler)123/4-1

4: Waves of Light (Martin, Biehler)123/9-2

5: Sheaparoux (Stevens, Chambers)123/6-1

6: Naomi Ridge Esq. (Rivera, Scherer)123/8-1

7: He Sips Bourbon (Hamilton, Offolter)123/12-1

8: Sweet Afleet (Butler, Padilla)123/6-1

9: K C’s Misfit (Delorme, Kirby)123/10-1

10: A Thousand Talents (Goodwin, Kirby)123/15-1

SHEAPAROUX can sit close to the pace and cut loose down the stretch as she did last out for the win. JULIE’S MEMORY can sneak away with soft fractions if she finds no challengers up front to hook up with. WAVES OF LIGHT exits troubled start but still managed to get up for show honors.

7 3 1/2 furlongs. 2-year-olds. Maiden special weight. Purse: $27,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Real Windy (Olesiak, Johnson)118/8-1

2: Sammy’s Mineshaft (Hamilton, Padilla)118/9-2

3: Changoleon (Dieguez, Silva)118/8-1

4: Big Red Brown (Ordaz, Silva)118/6-1

5: Ready’s Gamble (Velazquez, Bethke)118/10-1

6: Patti’s Edge (Olesiak, Bolinger)118/12-1

7: Silver Magna (Martin, Biehler)115/5-1

8: It’saboutjazz (Lopez, Diodoro)118/7-2

9: Flying Frank (Canchari, Padilla)118/6-1

Hit the All button to start the Pick 4 in this field of first-timers at 3½ furlongs. Give edge to IT’SABOUTJAZZ for trainer Diodoro who likes to win at first asking with trainee firing bullet drills in the sessions. SAMMY’S MINESHAFT and FLYING FRANK follow in my second-tier runners.

8 7 1/2 furlongs. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $20,000. Purse: $20,000.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Kissmeimdanish (Eikleberry, Lund)123/4-1

2: Dolphin Shorts (Ordaz, Silva)123/6-1

3: Award (Hamilton, Rhone)123/5-1

4: Spinning Slew (Escobar, Cole)123/15-1

5: Miss My Rosie (Canchari, Robertson)123/9-2

6: Farmers Wife (Stevens, Chambers)123/6-1

7: Thrice Nice (Butler, Rhone)123/3-1

8: Bluegrass Lucy (Martin, Padilla)123/15-1

9: Dynamicflower (Canchari, Canchari)123/20-1

KISSMEIMDANISH made strong run around final turn before fading to fifth in return effort; entitled to move forward second off the layoff. AWARD ships up from Tampa with decent early speed and expects to be within striking range for first shot at frontrunners. MISS MY ROSIE will be rolling late and merits respect as logical late threat coming out of the Robertson barn.

9 5 1/2 furlongs. fillies and mares. Claiming $10,000. Purse: $10,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Echo Canyon (Olesiak, Johnson)119/12-1

2: Our Rianna (Escobar, Danger)123/8-1

3: Lady’s Edition (Dieguez, Pfeifer)123/9-2

4: Holy White Socks (Hernandez, Brinson)123/7-2

5: Shal Pal’s Castle (Keith, Fauchald)123/5-1

6: Souper Four (Butler, Donlin)123/4-1

7: Break On Top (Goodwin, Rhone)123/8-1

8: G G’s Silent Siege (Canchari, Robertson)123/5-1

GG’S SILENT SIEGE won last out, even if it was 9 months ago. Solid work tab coming in and gets nice outside post to sit off the expected screamin pace duel. HOLY WHITE SOCKS looked like she had the race in the bag last out with four-length lead before fading badly off the board; maybe she needed that run off return. LADY’S EDITION and SOUPER FOUR are must use on the tickets who will be rallying late.

10 1 mile. 3-year-olds and up. Claiming $4,000. Purse: $9,500.

#/Horse, Jockey, TrainerWt./Odds

1: Samendra (Martinez, Martinez)123/7-2

2: Desert Prize (Butler, Rengstorf)123/6-1

3: The Flying Whizzer (Stevens, Green)123/8-1

4: One Firm Cat (Carreno, Diodoro)123/3-1

5: Mr. Rancho Vista (Canchari, Martinez)123/5-1

6: Bigdaddywarbucks (Eikleberry, Van Winkle)123/9-2

7: Fifth Dimension (IRE) (Lopez, McFarlane)123/5-1

ONE FIRM CAT looks to be the cream of the crop of the sprinters in the field stretching out to a mile. FIFTH DIMENSION transfers off the turf after failing to fire last out and hoping to go up, up and away on the dirt. SAMENDRA closed very wide last effort, but that shouldn’t be a issue here starting from the rail.
