Del Mar for Thursday 11 August 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

2  Blue Rock   good speed conditioner picks up nice a gelding from the East coast who has speed.....Miller/Pat Valenzuela.....see ya

5  Frenzo   MSW  dropper tossed a clunker in last but his debut 2 races back fits at today's lower level

7  Competent   two improved efforts after this colt seemingly legged up off of 2 route turf races.....seems poised for best ever

6  Thunder Canyon   dangerous conditioner in Hess with mid priced mc 1sters training up to snuff for their maiden debuts


race 2    average clairiy

3  Crazyforlovingyou   good chance to get a nice chase position behind a suspect front runner in the 1 horse.......trainer doesn't seem to be afraid to drop a horse to win

5  Stunningly   late runner sure is rather consistent and ran a good effort 1st time around two turns in last

2  Merrytagio   likes 6 to 8 weeks between races and gets when trainers show patience and you know they want the horse on full tilt since it will be another 6 to 8 weeks before the owner will get a shot to enjoy the thrill of watching his horse run


race 3    average clarity

3  Ignited   trainer is solid 1st time at a route and this 3 year old is bred to appreciate going long.....he owns ample sprint speed so my guess is they will attempt to wire the field or at least sit close

1  Volacious   also should be up close from the get go.....decent route races just needs to overcome a tendency to flatten out late

4  Rambo Nation   moved forward in 2nd lifetime run (both sprints) and will need the trend to continue......route breeding is fine

6  Bill Maker   poor trip in last somewhat hides a significant wake-up for this gelding....will need even more today....positive rider switch can help get there


race 4    average clarity

4  Remus   sure got good out of nowhere in his last 2 starts.......7 weeks since last seen but training up to the fact Puype isn't dropping......indicates he is rather high on this gelding

1  Galleta Monstruo    O'Neill has woken up over the last couple of days......this gelding is 2 for 2 at the somewhat speciality sprint distance of 7F

2  Domonation   big day for Sadler yesterday and trainers often win in the 1 horse he appreciates 7F......does tend to hang....hasn't put his nose in front in quite some time


race 5  slightly above average clarity

6  Candy And Nuts   decent debut and even better in last......blinkers on and a solid recent work hinting it is a smart equipment change.... last fits solidly......better and she will be very hard to handle

10  Ansede   Lloyd is not much of a 1st time out of the box trainer but the good work tab suggests he may break the mold today

9  All I Wanted   very dangerous LS shipper......Cash Assmussen is stellar with 2nd time starters....expecting much more out of the filly then she showed in her Texas debut

8  Courtney's Prize   might have needed a race over the Dmr surface....if so she might be capable of rebounding to her MSW debut effort at Emd that seemingly fits for today's level

Longshot Possibilities:    5  Free Itch    checked hard late (in her maiden debut) on the run-up the backside and ran wide or would have been much closer at the wire....and Troeger is significantly better with 2nd time starters


race 6    slightly above average clarity

5  Diamond Journey  repeat of  last race on the AW which was 2 races back would be mighty difficult for any in here to beat......vastly improved since Mitchell claimed 

3  Carrie Rose   love lead only types who learn how to rate and preserve some fuel for the late going....that is the case here....1st time Mitchell is a plus as well

2  Russian Bayou   on the improve since Mulhall took over.....1st time long is a strong suite for the trainer

7  Laura Beasley   recent turf races are better than appear in the synthetic a whirl


race 7    average clarity

6  West Ruler   sharp win in last and a sharp bullet work since hints she has held her form....race is loaded speed and this filly is capable of coming from off the pace  

5  Linda Lou   proven fresh off of the bench and this late runner seemingly gets ample pace to make her late run a factor even at the speed friendly 5F on the sod distance

1  Jax El   rocket grass horse in two turn affairs smartly gives a 5 furlong turf race a whirl

2  Salty Sarah   decent chance for the slumping Martin Garcia to get a good stalking ground saving trip behind what most likely will be a blistering pace


race 8    slightly below average clarity

1  So Tough   1st timer has a sharp work tab in N Cal at GG and he has been sent to the right trainer in M Mitchell to get the job done....bred to be a nice sprinter

3  Warren's Diggers   both races since the blinkers were put on aren't too bad....only needs to move forward a couple of horse lengths to reach par for today's level of racing....switch to Bejarano might get him there

4  Rino U   poor trip in 2nd lifetime starts somewhat hides a good move forward....better post today to help get a better journey....underrated jock remains aboard 

8  Taylor Marini   fell off some in 2nd lifetime start.....debut 2 back fits with a very clean trip

7  Mr Sproles   OK drills for this 1st timer.......trainer is pretty good with mc 1sters.....not impossible

5  Insightful Boy    blinkers off is a strong suite for Becerra and the works suggest the equipment change may have woken up this colt in prep. for his 2nd lifetime start
