Del Mar for Sunday 1 August 2010


Handicappers Corner  

Folks, as you know I seldom make excuses for a lousy day but yesterday outside posts and outside trips dominated after the fairest (neutral) track that Dmr has seen on Friday. I bring this up not just to whine a little but remind you that the Dmr synthetic is inconsistent and I wish they would get it's not like the weather changes much. Must be the tide. Right!!!


Like the last pick 3 got a bit

7th race pick 3 prt-wheel 6,7,10,11 / 1,4,5,7 / 3,5,8,9  64 bets


race 1    average clarity

3  Avid   love the pedigree for this expensive animal.......good work series topped off with a blistering 5 furlong bullet gate work and at was at Dmr...very ready 1ster

5  Big Tiz   earned a decent MSW debut fig albeit on the sod....but...better breeding for the main track

2  Righteous Renee   needed MSW debut tightener in last.........trainer is much tougher with 2nd time starters


race 2    below average clarity

3  Bandeira Union   races on the AW fit fine....may have spent too much time on the sod

2  Deputy Flyer   yikes, the horses that ran 1-2 in his last race both came back to win yesterday....positive rider switch as well 

6  Wolgan Valley   not the best of trainers on significant drop downs but solid if he breaks the mold here

5  Kingman Kid   improving with every race and will need to keep the trend going


race 3    below average clarity

9  Breakmark   10 months off but training sharply......only lifetime race lost about 5 or 6 lengths with a bad start

7  Romeo Royale   work series for a trainer like Abrams is rather srtong.....believe he is ready with this colt

5  Fortunate Appeal   solid debut and continues to work like a runner

3  Hugs To All   getting out on the turn pressing a solid pace......cleaner less green horse makes him as good as anyone here


race 4    average clarity

8  Fair Chase   showed an appreciation for the Dmr surface last year....proven tab has "ready" written all over it

7  Victory Dash   very consistent efforts....needs to get over his hanger tendencies

5  Misinjennuous   all four career races on the main track fit fine at today's level

4  Torrey Cliffs   overdo drop for this filly should id in her ability to contend for the top prize


race 5   average clarity

7  Ranger Heartly    caught in a wide rush on turn 1 in was very impressive to only get beat by less than 3 in a Grade 3.....loose here and if we get the track 2 days ago the light weight apprentice can wire

8  Cigar Man   last was the gimme to drop into claiming and go go go

6  Diferentkindagreat   great consistency for this gelding....few reasons to think he won't be highly competitive again

5  Gold Aly   strong race in last 3 months tab suggests we may see it again today


race 6    average clarity

4  Battle School    solid turf race in only turf route have never been better....should show best ever today

5  Blazing   2 good looking turf sprints and now gives a route a try...nice work series

7  Sky Fox   looks like lone speed in this race and that is a dangerous thing work M Smith aboard....note: route turf speed was much better  yesterday with the rail moved out to the 7 ft position

8  Big Cozz   hasn't raced in over a year but a strong long distance work series should have ready


race 7    average clarity

11  Saint Isbelle   young filly is getting good quickly....far outside posts dominated yesterday and that sure would help this girl if we get the same track

10  Nan   last time she sprinted it was a significant number that would beat these.....sure seems ready fresh off of the bench

7  Subsidized   strong figs in both lifetime races and would have been top pick if it wasn't for the cold winds a blowin across the red hot Baffert barn

6  True Religion   monster of a race run at Crc and excellent drills at Crc since....sent west fit and ready to roll


race 8    average clarity

5  Cost Of Freedom   3 for 5 at Dmr and eye popping drills one of which was at Dmr......crushes if we get the Dmr surface 2 days ago....taller order if we get yesterday's nightmare for speed

7  Smiling Tiger   outstanding 3 year old sprinter can get a nice outside stalking position

4  El Brujo    solid late running sprinter sure worked well for his new barn over the Dmr surface


race 9    average clarity

9  The Full Lavino   rest and strong drills and his lowest racing level ever make him the one to beat

5  Morganouska   Hess can sent a mdn claimer ready to win with the best of series says all set to roll and should be a price

8  Dazzling Razz   in good form and fit to finish coming off a route jock/trainer

3  Night Justice   training as if ready compete in lifetime debut....also was bet some at the windows last Saturday but scratched after acting up at the gate

7  Cookin Express   capable of getting away and being loose....wants Friday's track

*the 14 horse Peanut Butter fits if he draws into the field
