“Off the Charts” Trip Notes. Here are some runners who could use a playback or a good hard look next out, including some runners exiting the 2016 Breeders’ Cup.

Aqueduct

11/5/16

Race #2 – #9 – Uncle Chester – 1 1/16 turf

Eric Cancel’s mount seemed to lose traction leaving the starting gate. He made a solid attempt and spun three-wide on the turn to finish up third this day.

Race  #5 – #12 – Rule Number One – 1 mile turf

Antonio Gallardo in the irons and one thing is for sure. This guy can flat-out horseback.  He rode four winners on the card, and his mount was carried four wide coming up a little empty down the lane. Next out should have him moving right back into top form.

Race #6 – #8 – Realm – 1 mile on the dirt

Top rider Paco Lopez in the driver’s seat and his runner stalked just off the leaders and inhaled the field to win by an easy 5 1/4. – He needs a good playback next out as he completed this task with plenty left in the tank.

Santa Anita

11/5/16 – 2016 Breeders’ Cup

Race #1 – #10 – Kitten’s Cat – 6 1/2f turf

Luis Saez in the saddle for the Joe Sharp barn. His colt stumbled at the start and closed with a strong flourish four wide on his way to the winner’s circle. This son of Kitten’s Joy may have some good things to come and could use a good wager right back next time out.

Race #4 – Juvenile Fillies – #12 – American Gal – 1 1/16 dirt

Mike Smith for Baffert, and their filly broke slow from the gate in the #12 post. She was seven wide down the backstretch and 5 wide into the final turn. She managed a to finish with good energy to be 3rd as the beaten favorite.

Race #7 – Turf Sprint – #12 – Om – 6 1/2 f turf

Gary Stevens in the irons and broke inward at the break. He was stalking in a perfect trip when Stevens lost his whip in the final 1/16th to be bested by a nose at the wire.

Race #12 – Classic – #9 Hoppertunity – 1 1/4 miles dirt

John Velasquez in the saddle for Bob Baffert and he was facing two monsters this day. He wouldn’t have caught Chrome or Arrogate going around another lap, but if he catches just a solid field, he’ll give them fits as he finished up with good energy to show he is getting ready.
