Today’s La Jolla Handicap

This is an interesting feature race, with two talented dirt 3-year-olds who have yet to prove their worth on turf against a couple of talented grass runners.

I like Arson Squad, simply because it’s Solis-Headley and the gelding looked so impressive in winning the Swaps Stakes at Hollywood Park. A.P. Warrior outfinished Arson Squad in the Affirmed Stakes, but the latter looked like a different horse in the Swaps.
It appears Neil Drysdale has a talented runner in Caribbean, and Porto Santo probably should have won his division of the opening-day Oceanside Stakes if not for a whole mess of trouble. These last two are turf specialists who figure to make this a very interesting race. Proceed with caution.

  1. I agree with you Mr. Wilson! I too like Arson Squad tons today! But with the way I am handicapping right now, I am not so sure that is a good thing! ‘Squad is bred to love the turf and figures to get a great trip. We’ll see!

  2. Lets hope this is ralley a life-changing wake up call, and he goes on to grow into a young man who will make the most of his talent and the opportunities given him.
