Del Mar for Thursday 2 Sept 2010


Handicappers Corner


3rd race pick 3 part wheel sequence looks decent

1,2,4,5 with 4,7,8 with 1,4,9,12,13     60 bets max....depends on scratches


race 1    average clarity

5  Grand Maneuver   very solid effort/fig with a wide run in last and bred to get the mile

3  Graydle'sRed   impressive maiden debut followed be a weaker effort....but....back in 6 days suggests the horse came out of the race fine....adequate route pedigree for 1 mile

4  Nitro Power   very slow early but bred to prefer a route of ground...can close late from far back and may fly with the l;ight weight apprentice up


race 2    slightly above average clarity

1A  Greeley's Ghost   gelding is definite in the uptrend mode sure seems to appreciate 2 turns (no 1 is an OK toss in)

2  Oak Kye Why   solid sprints on the AW and now switchs to the grass....bred fine to handle the distance and the new surface 

4  It's Not Unusual   Hendricks just claimed what looks like a decent animal who has a better than average pedigree to take to the lawn


race 3    average clarity

4  Spectacular Slew   both lifetime races fit fine here.....ran on a somewhat dull rail and got blocked in last or would have won bu a couple

1  Honour Family   good move forward in last and and back quick with a useful drill in between...ready for another good run

5  Price   lived up to his name in his maiden debut last Winter....long hiatus from the race wars but a very sharp work series says he is ready to roll


race 4    average clarity

4  Move On Gypsy   great chance to get ground saving up close position....cut back in distance by a 1/16 should help her finish

7  Spanish Bunny   likes a route of ground....all 3 route races on the sod are par like efforts for today's level on T T Today

8  Fairy Tale Forest   barn is quite a bit better 2nd time at a route and strong recent drills suggest that may occur today and occur at a big price

6  Favoloso   dull last...needs a rebound....Rosario sticks with the filly so we may get one


race 5    average clarity

9  Light Of A Star   not much more to say than this filly has been 1st or 2nd for all of 2010 and beyond for multiple trainers

1  Stevie's Affair  keeps dropping but not winning but did earn a significant fig in last with a wide trip......solid work since

4  Missoula   solid last and back in short rest with a good history for it

12  Popular Date   3rd after the layoff may be the charm for this filly who can sit close up in a race seemingly set somewhat for front running types

NOTE:  number 13 is as good as anyone in here if he draws into the field from the also eligible list


race 6    average clarity

1  Courtside   earned a decent mc mdn debut fig with a wide trip.....good likelihood moves forward off a strong drill since that race

2  Basic Strategy   tightly spaced series of drills finishing with 5F bullet gate work says ready to roll in his debut into the racing world

8  Certainly Certain   big shot here if we get this geldings race 2 back

5  Swiss A   very bad trip in debut losing about 7 lengths and has trained well since....move forward is likely


race 7    above average clarity

1  Separate Forest    monster debut MSW 11 length win at SR and bred extremely well to be a good grass sprinter

7  Pink Diamond   plenty of pace can set things up nicely for this proven turf sprinter

3  Palco   deep closer may get the pace he will need to put in his close


race 8    below average clarity

10  Omega Storm   pinch me I selected an 0 for 24 jock on top......trainer/rider won together on a 1ster last Spring and the way this one is training they look like they are trying to repeat things

8  Final Answer   hot rider/trainer combo and the works on this 1ster scream ready

7  B. J.'s Hope   clunker in last but fired a strong better than par effort 2 races back

1  Mi Alma   works seem good enough to consider this 1ster ready to be competitive in his maiden debut

9  Swiss Albert   barn has been cold for the Dmr meeting but is very dangerous with 1st time well
