Mike’s Free Selections for Saturday Dec. 20:
Los Alamitos Race 4 Md Sp Wt (1:54 ET)
- No.6 Fort Cady 4-1
- No.8 Rolo Tamaci 8-5
- No.5 Couldshouldadid 6-1
- No.7 Friday Harbor 5-1
Fort Cady stalked the early pace and made a mild late run to finish third last out going a mile on turf at Del Mar. The winner Synnin came back to beat $40,000 starter allowance foes in his next outing on Nov. 28. The colt has only been on dirt twice and was a good second two back for a $50,000 tag at Santa Anita. He looks headed in the right direction and looks as if we should catch a fair price.
Rolo Tamaci makes his first start since running fifth in his debut going 6 1/2 on the downhill turf at Santa Anita back in March, sent off at 4-1 in a field of 12 in that outing. The gelding has several quick works on the morning tab for the Baltas barn that is 18% winners with runners coming back off a +180 day layoff.
WIN: #6 to win at 3-1 or better.
EX: 6,8 / 5,6,7,8
TRI: 6,8 / 5,6,7,8 / 3,5,6,7,8
