Del Mar for Friday 22 July 2011



Finally seems like a decent card at Dmr. Top choices today are dominated by Solis - Sadler - V Garcia - Mitchell - jockey Gomez. Best of luck as always. Big 10 race Saturday card tomorrow.


race 1    average clarity

4  Del Siete Leguas   soild wake up with the blinkers removed in last and the switch to Gomez.......vastly improved works of late and Gomez sticks around....step up in claiming price seems very positive

3  Senor Rain   solid series of works for this 1ster and Miller seems to have a barn full of runners

6  Traweek   hard check in debut or would have been much closer in MSW debut which appears to be the tune-up for today's drop into maiden claiming


race 2    average clarity

2  Willa B Awesome   impressive 3rd in open company Stakes at Hollywood and is training up a storm since.....Gomez/Solis again

3  Heleonor Rugby   consistent efforts in all 3 lifetime starts.......should be motoring late

4  Roar Baby Roar   done little wrong in 2 lifetime races.......can range up from the outside which so far at Dmr in 2011 has been a good thing


race 3    slightly above average clarity

7  Veillit'    not much more to say then this filly has 7 wins and 7 2nd's in 18 AW races and now starts for M Mitchell 1st run after the claim

3  Akeela   good fresh history for this filly including a 37 to 1 win at Dmr off of a layoff last August....same trainer and the works say ready

1  Miss Anime   impressive close into little pace in last........7F is a good fit

6  Capalatte   consistent sort has been freshened up with a nice series of drills especially considering the low rent district she is competing in.......handled Dmr just fine last year


race 4    average clarity

5  Brown Is Beige   solid grass sprints.......pedigree is good enough to get a mile on the sod....Sadler has been good 1st time long on the grass with proven turf sprinters the last few years

1  Lemon Drop Ridge   in every other mode and today is the positive side of the pendulum

4  Scarlet Starlet   needed last and has a shot to be on the lead in this spot.....lone win came the only time she has been loose


race 5    slightly below average clarity

5  Stacy Light   has been up against two tough fields in 2 lifetime races and now drops....and why not drop, only 2 races in 2 years.....positive rider switch

9  So Tempted   logical long overdo drop out of MSW.......Hess is solid 1st time in maiden claiming

8  Kalk Bay   didn't like a route in last......previous race was in a debut sprint and it was quite a bit better then appears on paper

2  Virginia Way   trainer has been awakening and this 1st timer hasn't missed a beat in the mornings for the last 2 1/2 months.....Espinoza has hit the board 6 of the last 7 mounts for Dollase


race 6    slightly beow average clarity

1  Savavas Wild Again   proven he can fire fresh off of the bench.....V Garcia is good with laid up suggest this gelding is fit and ready

8  Low Gear Power   likes Dmr.....magic Mike Mitchell trains

10  Warren's Warehouse   well placed to win.......where else can you go after winning a 16K conditioned claimer especially with the purse money so good

9  Royal Import   handles Dmr well......drops off of a claim which is actually a strong suite for Hess....does tend to hang some

Longshot Possibilities:   3  Straightomidnight   trainer is stoute 1st out after a claim and the gelding has a good history short to long like today 


race 7    average clarity

4  Cat Talk   very sharp right now.....continues to work like he is feeling quite good.....on or near the lead and he sure proved he can handle stout pace in his latest

5  Cloud Man   has done nothing wrong in 4 lifetime starts except might have a tendency to hang some.......Shirreffs grass horses have been firing of late

3  Red Sharp Humor   nasty duel in fast pace versus better did him in as it would most....might want to take back some as he did in winning at GG 2 races back

8  Great Warrior   back to Bejarano who has gotten the most out of this colt to have to appreciate the way this fellow consistently tries hard


race 8    average clarity

11  Silencio   blinkers off and V Garcia has won his last 5 of 11 with the equipment change....and only sprint run without blinkers is are the recent drills

6  My T Quick   2 1/4 years away but has been capable of hitting the track to work with 4 or 5 days interval....good sign of health and fitness...all 4 lifetime races fit solidly here

4  Jakey Boy   exits a fast heat of mdn20K with a wide trip......apprentice and Cerin as a team have only missed the board once in 6 efforts

2  Johardy   decent debut back in early May.......laid up but training like he is once again ready to roll

3  Papason   compromised by a poor start in mc debut......surely can improve for the likes of Mandella in 2nd lifetime start

9  Tempting Soluttion   seems to be running into shape....3rd time might be the charm

 NOTE:  13  Clocker Moment  is also a factor if he draws in off of the AE's
