Del Mar for Friday 26 August 2011





Opening day at Fairplex Friday, September 9th and Derby day at Fairplex, Saturday  September 24th will be available. Most likely there will be another card covered which I'll announce at a later date. 


race 1    average clarity

7  Dish The Dirt    appreciates ample time between starts and gets it....aggressive work tab for a hot trainer......powerful effort/fig in last

1  She's Very Rare   2 for 2 at 7 at today's distance......tight interval training for a laid up low level  Mitchell claimer has "ready"  written all over it

6  Capalatte   a good 7F effort in last and 2 decent 5F drills since indicate a healthy filly thus the step up a small notch in claiming price....needs a small move forward and we may get it

3   Forty Dates   ultra consistent sprinter but she  needs to show more staying power when she goes 7F if she wants to win this affair

Longshot possibilities:  5  Guided Wave   seems to be on a possible rebound......races in late Spring out of town fit well versus these  


race 2    slightly above average clarity

1  Yankee Go South   best proven turf speed in the race and an exceptionally quick horse exiting from the gate.....I'll take that in a 5F affair

2  Quick Enough   greatly diminished abilities but a solid 3F drill hints of a rebound

8  Palio Prince   good history when this gelding gets a nice outside stalk position and he has a shot to find himself in that position today

7  Quietly Mine   both Dmr 5F races are good.....will be closing late


race 3    slightly above average clarity

6  Field Report   broke a little tardy and ran a little wide in a good MSW since hint we will see even more today

2  Madeoftherightstuff   3rd new trainer in only 4 starts....what's with that??  lone race on the AW fits fine.....wide trip and still closed fast for a near victory

1  Lord's Minister   nicely bred Calbred has a good work tab and finished with 3 6F works....good foundation for debut....capable N Cal conditioner

5  Mint Humor   cut back of 1/2 furlong might help this gelding stick around to the end as he has been fading late at 6F


race 4    average clarity

1  L. A. Weekend    1 for 1 on the grass and it was at today's bullet 4F drill one week ago....maybe OK off the pace if need be....tough to tell as he has led in all 3 of his lifetime starts

2  Supercarls Remedy   laid up but owns a good work and only 5 furlongs to last with P Val up

7  Al Instante   why this import has taken three starts to run on th turf I can't figure out because he won his last 6 grass sprints in a row overseas and hasn't run a lick on the main track

5  Get Funky   old timer is fresh and has a shot to sit behind the speed and close late


race 5    average clarity

9  Bee Eff Eff    lone lifetime start which was run last December was an extremely strong effort at great for her layoff run and she is now in the reliable hands of Mike Puype

2  The Road Diva   very good work tab for Troeger who isn't too bad with young horses with zero racing experience

7  Raven Wild   working well enough to be considered a factor in her MSW debut.....last two drills hint she is sharpening when it counts the time

3  Evasive Charmer   seemed to respond to being taken back off the pace and closing instead of being put on the pace and flattening......Quinonez remains up which tells me will get the better of the 2 scenarios


race 6    slightly below average clarity

1  First Settler   nice marathon run versus the boys in last and a much more aggressive work regiment since with the blinkers on suggests we will see even more today

3  Mutually Benefit   definitely on the correct end of the learning curve.....needs ample time between races and Proctor shows patience and gives it to her

9  Farley Star   must have come out of her mile turf win in great shape because Mitchell brings her back in 8 days......bred to run all day long.....might be very sharp for this 1 3/8 mile affair

8  Private Affair   ultra consistent marathoner overseas and her last (2nd place) run in Argentina she faced quite a bit better then these.....but.......Cardenas needs to start showing he can get the job done with these horse's from PER and CHI


race 7    average clarity

9  Spicy Beau   big awakening in 2nd lifetime start with the addition of blinkers.....Sherman barn is a bit overdo and might get the mojo jump started here.....Flores could use a little jolt as well

6  Depth   6 1/2 furlongs should help this gelding get there when it counts when many in here will be flattening

12  Totally True   good meeting for Tim Yakteen and this 1st timer looks ready to roll for his debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred the gate then gate then blowout to finish his work preparation

4  Red Dwarf   solid layoff  run in last but Puype wasn't quite satisfied with things because he adds blinkers for today.....that hints that we may see even more horse today

3  My T Quick    very impressive 2+ year layoff run in last with an awkward start and a very wide trip and only lost by 5 1/4.....4 works since.......forward move seems rather logical

7  Sanibel Sid    had good works before his debut last and didn't run too well.....Ellis claimed and had him gelded.......deserves another shot to show those morning works weren't a fluke
