Del Mar for Sunday 7 August 2011


Sorry for the abbreviated comments but Chicago got hit once again with a nasty storm this morning and your handicapper lost power. Average card. Pick 6 looks very tough.


race 1    average clarity

5  Wall Street Wonder   runs big fresh when he breaks from the gate OK.....has poor starts about 1/3 of the time

3  Mensa Heat

4  Kelly Lark


race 2   average clarity

3  Unusual Heatwave   1st timer is a half to Alphie's Bet a good horse for Barba.....good works of course or I wouldn't select on top......really like the 3 furlong bullet drill that shows he most likely has early speed

4  Points Offthebench   

7  Frisky Moment

5  Champions Gate


race 3    average clarity

1  Aragon Sword   exits a very fast heat chasing a fast pace and only got beat by 7 1/2.....faces way easier here and the cut back of 1/2 furlong is a positive

3  Songfoya

7  Vote Of Approval

2  Full Deputy


race 4    below average clarity

1  Joker Face   tepid choice as I do not like match races at a level other then a high level Stakes race as I do not trust the integrity of such a race....that said,  horses seem rather equal but Eurton is hot right now and Gaines is not


race 5    average clarity

4  Filly Power   2 straight solid races for today's level since the trainer added the blinkers.....liked 4 weeks between starts in last and gets it once again

1,1a  ENTRY   both 1 and 1a have a shot in this spot

6  Abovetheinfluence

5  Free Range


race 6    average clarity

5  Dreamcaster    very impressive work tab even by Baffert standards for this well bred first timer....especially like the bullet 6F drill for a 2 year old....solid work for a baby in August

4  Light Of Life

3  Cha Cha Latte

10  Ask Me Later


race 7    slightly below average clarity

3  Real Housewife   legged up nicely with 2 solid turf sprint races and since put in 3 works within 15 and ready for a route on the AW...Spawr is tough in route races

1  Hopeful Union

5  Ambitoness

8  Hakuchi


race 8    average clarity

2  Creative Cause   best effort/fig in at least 3 or 4 years for a 1ster timer in the Summer at 2......few Giant Causeway's have so much speed and we know he tosses horses that run all day so this baby might be very special

7  Brigand

3  Mighty Monsoon

5  Galex


race 9    slightly below average clarity

5  Mr Saturdaynight   last looks like the two turn gimme to drop and fire big in a one turn affair.....same scenario two races back and this gelding crushed his competition

2  Forward Commitment

8  Justice Reigns

6  Dee Dee's Legacy


race 10    average clarity

6  Magic Mama   proven she can run fresh off of the bench.....trainer/rider combo is on fire....has been facing somewhat better

10  Bella Giomatta

7  Mavicsa

3  Takethemoneyandrun

11  Roulette It Roll

9  Socal Event
