Del Mar for Monday 5 September 2011




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


race 1    average clarity

5  Kisses For Kate   last 3 efforts fit well in this spot......blinkers off to save something for the finish.....bit too keen early with them on in last

6  Kids Table   not really Mandella's thing to be ready with a mc 1ster but the works are too good to ignore here

7  Dani Smokes   will need to move forward 2nd out off of the layoff even with the drop into maiden claiming but surely might

1  Warren's Boogie


race 2    average clarity

2  Malusita   significant move forward in last running big pace loose on the lead......loves to be clear on the front end....back to the sod but handles it OK 

5  Hameildaeme   horrid start in last and then showed her consistent ability.......fits solid on the sod for 25K....unless of course she breaks slowly by a half dozen lengths

8  Glory Pride   Mitchell drops a notch 2nd after the claim and gets Gomez to ride.......should sit close in a race that seems to favor front runners

6  Entabeni


race 3    average clarity

4  Champions Gate   showed decent pace and good final time winning his MSW debut wire to wire.....races lacks speed so he might be able to get loose once again

3  Rousing Sermon   wide trip in last or could have won.......blinkers on and so is Gomez

5  Stoney Fleece   horrid trips in both lifetime races and still managed to win both affairs.........deservedly takes big step up in class


race 4    slightly below average clarity

6  Angry Bird   lone debut effort seems as good as any effort run by his competition in here so far.....and he just worked his best drill to date....same or better is a good possibility today

1  One Magical Girl  useful debut and a big bullet drill since....should be fit and ready to compete for the top prize today

12  A Racing Delight   tossed a clunker in last but her maiden debut 2 races back is solid

7  Ms Pianist


race 5    average clarity

7  Lodi Red    impressive layoff run on the grass in last.....good drill since.....very reliable trainer 2nd out after a layoff with a turf horse....shot to fire lifetime best today

1  Warren's Kong   has gotten very sharp out of nowhere....blinkers on to sit closer....nice recent work....rather sure runs well today 

2  Starspangled Heat   mom would be proud of this very young 3 year old the way he competes......improved speed and final time in last....a good sign of another improvement for this well bred gelding

10  Bolinas


race 6    average clarity

2  Lanida   impressive maiden debut running wide and still closing very fast late.....big work since.....extra 1/2 furlong sure seems like a big plus

5  Heidi Maria   very solid improvement in last at a route.......needs the same kind of effort in today's sprint....tough call

3  So She Dreams   1st ever in a sprint and 1st ever on the AW.........laid up awhile but working awfully well on the Dmr synthetic....has fired fresh in the past including her MSW debut

8  Blazing Along


race 7    slightly above average clarity

5  Home Sweet Aspen   very stout in all 3 lifetime races on a fast track....chased a blazing pace in last and still managed 2nd versus a very tough foe.......seemingly very solid in this spot

3  Real Housewife   improving with every start in 2011.....trainer is showing signs of snapping out of the doldrums

9  Good Vibration   always like how much effort this filly brings to the table......repeat of last fits fine with a better trip

7  Bench Glory


race 8    average clarity

4  Well Monied   one of California's top turf trainers looks as if he has this extremely reliable grass horse all cranked up and ready to roll......Rosario loves this mount 

1  Go Forth North  good layoff run in last.....only needs a small move forward to be as good as anyone in this group........Avila horse's are running better than his record would indicate

6  Turning Top   showed a hint of her past ability in layoff last totally dead at the windows........expect more from her today 2nd out after a 3 month break

2  Medaglia D'amour   not much speed in this affair,,,,,,,,should sit on or near the lead from the get go without much pace on


race 9    average clarity

4  Written Rule   best set of works for a Mullins 1st timer in quite some time and he can get the done with a MSW 1st starter

10  Getting Lucky   laid up almost 3 months but both lifetime races are hint he maybe ready fresh off of the bench

1  Broadway Nika   small but dangerous outfit.....bred to be a decent sprinter

11  Luckywiththeladies

NOTE:  13 Got Even   fits fine in this spot if he draws into the field


race 10    slightly below average clarity

2  Clue Me In   hard to argue with 3 wins and 2 2nd's in the last 6 races for this lightly raced 5 year old

5  Up Country   last wasn't bad and it was probably needed....likely to see more today

4  Man Chester Man   solid improvement 1st out after the claim by Miller and that was with 3 months off.......more likely today

7  Leandros 

10  Skippy Due

1  Just Heat
