[private]

 

FAIRPLEX DATES  AVAILABLE

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 good....works 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
