Del Mar for Saturday 4 September 2010


Handicappers Corner

What a carryover. Seems like a decent card today. I quite often defend the premise that jocks and trainers rarely mess with their horse's chances when they are fit and ready but I saw a couple of things yesterday that would have me screaming at the rail if I was live at the track. Hope the stewards are watching closely.

Good Luck !


race 1    average clarity

8  Magnificent Blend  extremely consistent runner was just snatched at the claiming box...seemingly a good claim...last 4 races are solid

1  U. C. Merced Two  back in 6 days rest say last was the gimme for a full throttle go today..solid race 2 back

8  Weekend Party   beautifully bred animal trains like she will be another nice animal from a productive broodmare


race 7    slightly below average clarity

1  Dreamed To Dream   needed last...has been facing better....drop can really help
