Del Mar for Saturday 28 August 2010


Handicappers Corner

Recommended pick 3 part wheel starts in race number 5

1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9 with 2 with 2,4,6,7,8,9      48 bets


race 1    average clarity

1  Simply Put   had multiple trouble in last and a dogged pace to try to close into...2 nice 5F drills has ready

3  Torrey Cliffs   earned a significant fig/effort 2 back that would handle these....both 1 mile efforts on the AW are also solid....Knapp could use a win

4  Lisa Lulu   improved animal since the blinkers were added 3 races back......closed on a suspect rail in latest and still won to break her maiden on her 23rd attempt


race 2    average clarity

4  Sea of Pleasure   speedball is very sharp in his morning preparation for this race....good shot to wire

1  Pack Your Bags   Bejarano will most likely save some ground from the 1 hole and be closing fast late

8  Unionize   very consistent sprinter on the AW or the grass......needs to avoid getting caught 3 wide...a slot my develop for jock to get over

3  Ifitwasntfor Texas   1st time Mitchell invader will need to avoid running with our top pick in the early stages or most likely will pay a price

NOTE: if no. 9 draws into the field he would be my 3rd choice


race 3    average clarity

9  Peanut Butter Boy   somewhat hidden move forward in last running on a suspect rail.....drills for today are the sharpest in some time....small but reliable barn

8  Pride Of Wilshire   4 solid 2nd place races when the blinkers were on......they remain on today

10  Truco   on the right end of the learning curve....cut back of 1 furlong looks like a big plus

4  Warren's Tommy Too   seems like a sprint prep to go long in his next out but a major factor if that evaluation is incorrect


race 4    average clarity

6  Enriched   loves today's mile chasing and that is the position Rosario has put him in in the past

5  Scenic Blast   career sprinter is bred to get the mile.....can be loose on the front

7  Bruce's Dream   hard to argue with 5 wins in 5 starts on "flat" turf courses


race 5    below average clarity

5  The Unusual One   turf fit and owns some solid early speed.....positive rider switch to Bejarano

7  Shu Biz Danny    showed life including decent early foot on MSW drills since....barn is fairly hot

8  Lone Justice   rested some and has responded with the best work tab from the Periban barn in quite some time

2  Crestatorre   both lifetime races are OK....1st time back with short rest...expecting a move forward today


race 6    slightly above average clarity

2  Where's The Remote   impressive 1st on the grass....repeat of that effort should make him 2 for 2 on the sod

5  Hughesy   solid last 2 races on the lawn and back to Bejarano

8  Concerto's Thunder   has really sharpened his form of late....good shot to get a nice mid pack position...positive rider switch to Gomez

1  El Pitucon   ARG invader is training well especially for a barn that doesn't push their animals too hard


race 7    average clarity

6  Hollywood Heist   checked hard on the run-up then showed plenty of life...excellent drills since....highly likely to improve today

7  Miles Long Gone   impressive 112 flat work to finish off a nice work regiment for this 1ster

8  Golden Bounty   training like all systems go for this K Walsh 1st timer

4  Bull Creek    training like another nice Baffert baby.......but......using 2 for 111 (2010 mounts) jock ??????  kid gets a bone...late rider switch ?


race 8    average clarity

10  The Usual Q. T.   better on the grass but good enough on the AW especially considering it looks like he can get a nice chase position behind what seemingly will be a slow to reasonable pace

4  Temple City   loose on the lead and will try to slow it down....very ratable sort is a big plus

6  Richard's Kid   will he ever get a race with pace in it....quick drills say he can show more early speed today

7  Hold Me Back   1 1/4 is a good fit and has a nice record on the AW......Mott ships x-country is a significant plus....excellent work series at Bel


race 9    average clarity

8  Magic Launch    should get a chase or mid pack position.....3/4 of his T T Today figs fit best in this spot

1  Thisoneforyou   earned a solid fig with a wide trip on the AW in latest....1st on the grass and bred fine for it...showed 2 turns is not a problem on the AW

9  Silver Heat   price shot out ran our top pick when you account for their trips in the last race for both of them...blinkers off....smooth trip from a difficult post and bombs away

13  Sandy Cheeks   has been racing well versus open company....positive rider switch can help overcome a difficult post


race 10    average clarity

8  Smiling Tiger    only one other speed horse to put away and he is on the difficult 1 animal has a shot at his 2nd straight Grade 1 win

6  Crown Of Thorns   laid up but training as if 100 % ready to compete at the highest of levels

5  Leaving New York   broke badly and rushed and still managed to win....very very few overcome what he did....blistering drill since 

10  El Brujo   last was the 1st time in the Baffert barn tune-up to be ready to roll in today's top level sprint


race 11    slightly above average clarity

 4  California Nectar   monster MSW debut in last....wins if he repeats it....demolishes the field if he moves forward

5  Zenidekka   best set of drills for a Drysdale 1st timer in many a the fact that this filly was just purchased in May...barn knows what they've got

6  Pleasing Sunrise    decent debut and a solid 3 work series since...forward move is likely

1  Warren's Flyer   trainer is usually much tougher with 2nd time starters and this horse had a fairly decent MSW debut

2  Lil Tahoma    Bonde runner is training up to snuff to be considered ready for her debut into the world of racing
