Del Mar for Wednesday 27 July 2011



Just a reminder we will not be covering the Fairplex meeting this year except for a few select days and even that is only a possibility. There was little interest last year and the break should do this aging brain of mine some good. 


race 1    average clarity

3  Hot Ride   seemingly a hot ride for a cold jock at least by Rosario standards......strong drills and a good winning debut at Crc which is loaded with good 2 year olds this time of year......solid gate drill on the Dmr surface is reassuring

7  Chips All In   won maiden debut as the fave back in early the long works since while in waiting for a spot to run especially for a conditioner like Kitchingman......rather sure should be strong late

6  Ruler Of Dubai   good move forward in 2nd lifetime recent work on the training track at SA hints another move in the right direction can occur

4  Grumpy Small Mouth   bad trip in debut and beaten badly....good trip in 2nd lifetime start and an easy winner......only needs to move move forward a couple of lengths to battle for the victory


race 2    average clarity

5  Shawklit Sunday   claim back by a small but capable barn........looking for his race 2 back which is quite strong......9 wins and 4 2nd's on the AW

3  Lit De Bet   most or maybe all of her career races run on the AW fit fine at this filly 10K level

1  Sing Sing Cindrela   1st time Mitchell and works seem good our 2nd choice this girl's whole career fits fine in this spot

8  Victoriously   improving sort has handled the rise in class rather decently 3x in a row.......going for 4x today


race 3    average clarity

9  Three Cuties   improved effort for his new trainer in last.......solid move forward last time had a chance to run off of shorter rest which is today's scenario

8  Judy's My Angel   improved speed with the blinkers added in latest......10 lbs off with the apprentice up today.......should fly early loose on the lead in this spot....hang on kid

1  Running Isabella   continues to train like she is a nice horse....needs to learn how to run in the afternoon.....blinkers on in last didn't work.....smartly off today 

6  Sweet Pleasure    1ster is training up to snuff and catches a less then stellar group


race 4    average clarity

4  R Vicarious Girl   highly competitive sort and consistent.......ships in and now is in the high % Mitchell barn......ratable mare seems like the controlling speed here

5  Gumption   late runner will be finishing  well most likely when quite a few in here tend to flatten out at 1 1/16 miles on the sod

1  El Nadia   smooth runner can get the trip saving some ground stalking the pace setters......does tend to flatten out slightly at the distance.......still, smooth running grass horses are almost always dangerous

2  Hameildaeme   claim back by Lloyd and he leaves P Val aboard who has won his last 2 of 3 mounts with this mare......deep closer seemingly gets about a 50/50 shot at getting the needed heat up front to sets things up for a closer like herself


race 5    average clarity

7  Coal Region Kid   last was OK.....race 2 back would handle the competition here

8  Te Rapa   raced over his head in last in what appears to be the tune-up for a full throttle drop and go today

4  Volacious   improving sort will need the trend to continue.....trainer is off to a decent start at the seaside meeting

6  Royal Heat    another on the improve....1st long ever but bred to handle a route of ground......7 pounds off with the apprentice up......should be in the hunt from the get go


race 6    slightly above average clarity

6  Rumor   love the way Mandella is taking his time with this filly keeping her in alw races and teaching her what winning is all about.....filly has been most impressive in all 4 lifetime starts

2  Pedaltothemedal   1 for 1 at Dmr and that race came after a grass race run at Hollywood....same scenario for today

1  Alaska Miss   speed of the speed has a dangerous history when she gets clear by a length or two


race 7    slightly below average clarity

5  Victory Pete    last 6 races average 1 below par on The Racing Digest's Top Turf Today Figs and both lifetime turf wins are at the 1 mile distance being run today

4  Gallant Son   decent history at least figure/effort wise running short to long like today and he won his last in a 6 furlong sprint on the sod

1  Blue Chagall   experienced runner will need a near flawless race to upset either of our top 2 picks if they run their and rider (Gomez) may give her what she needs

9  American Lion   solid runner at 2 and 3....caught some very solid competition......sprint tune-up in layoff run last......bred to handle the lawn.....Harty is solid 2nd out after a layoff


race 8    average clarity

6  Courtney's Prize    trainer has come ready to rock and roll from what he has shown so far......2 nice Emd races under her belt and maybe more importantly a sold bullet 5/8ths work on the Dmr synthetic

2  Jessakar   bombed in last.....race 2 back was a strong bad trip effort.......that race 2 back with a good trip would make her mighty tough here

10  Bold Remark   2 decent lifetime races....Bejarano accepting the mount seems like a good signal this filly has held her form for her 1st on the Dmr oval

7  Elegant Eve   claiming 1st timers isn't exactly Palma's strong suite but the works sure seem like this one is meant and ready

1  Kvell   nothing special so far in 2 lifetime races but positive rider switch and the trainer is solid 2nd time lasix with a horse

5  Lady Aragorn   works are so so but Walsh has won a third of her last 90 mc 1st starters
