Del Mar for Saturday 3 August 2013

[private]

Excellent day of racing today and a massive pick 6 carryover.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

1  Rum Point    good speed and an excellent final time earning a solid fig.......same effort and it will take an quite a bit of an above average 2 year old to beat him......or a dead inside

7  Tanzanite Cat   very solid work regiment for this Cody Autrey 1st timer who was just purchased in April......and the works at Del Mar are especially good.....lookout if he clears because he appears to have plenty of early gas

3  Knock Em Flat   so so MSW debut but like our 2nd pick the works are vastly better since he switched his training to Dmr from Bhp.......very likely to show quite a bit more in 2nd lifetime start

4  Quick and Silver

 

race 2    average clarity

4  Smokin' Cat   very aggressive a.m preparation for this Sadler laid up drop down.........25 furlongs of work in a 3 week span......sure seems meant and ready

9  Fear The Beard   after 2 nice inside trips in a row Bejarano had this O'Neill runner way too wide throughout in his last.........tough post but jock will be out to make amends

2  Golden Missile   looks loose here and if things end up going free and easy early on he ..............might.............go................all...............the...............way....... (still have a Blackhawks hangover but the NFL is just around the corner)

3  Warren's Wild Thing

 

race 3    average clarity

2  Amazing Hearted   broke tardy and ran a little wide in winning maiden debut.......went off 5 to 1 in a 6 horse field so Baffert and company might have been somewhat surprised by the solid effort........good work tab since......same or better seems likely today

4  Appollo Ten   on the right end of the learning curve.......lifetime best in last.........works at Del Mar strongly suggest this gelding likes the Poly and has a great chance to move forward once again today  

6  Key Decision   has not won in quite some time.........drops and drops off of some solid a.m. preparation to find the long lost winners circle

7  Luckarack

 

race 4    average clarity

3  Dreamnofatticus   both lifetime sprints were on the lawn and they fit here if this Gary Mandella runner can run similar on his 1st ever on the AW this afternoon.........breeding and works at Del Mar say he that he can

6  Pulla Train   not the best of trips in MSW debut on opening day at Dmr and still closed well to be a 3L beaten 3rd.........trainer is more dangerous with 2nd time starters........move forward......better trip........and a good shot at the circle of joy

1  Bro's Bro   moved forward in 2nd lifetime start about 4L............any move forward in 3rd lifetime start would make this Carava runner as likely to win this as anyone in the field 

5  Mr Lemon Tree

 

race 5    average clarity

6  Holding Glory   definitely on the right end of the learning curve in Brazil.........Avila loves to work his imports long and the mile work this colt put in at Dmr one week ago is the best work from a member of the trainer's barn in many a moon........believe Avila has a good one here

2  Rousing Sermon   consistent late runner seemingly gets enough pace up front to once again be a major factor in the late stages of the race

1  Huntsville   trainer has woken up some and I think he is putting this grass cutter on the main track because he worked so strongly on it..........good post and M Smith rides for the 1st time...........hmmmmmm

9  You Know I Know

 

race 6    average clarity

10  Heart Stealer    ran off setting nasty nasty fractions for the distance 2 back on the Hol AW........tried to run off of short rest off of such a stressful effort and the Baffert runner ran 2nd in his 1st on the sod but I don't think it was his best........rebound city today

8  Warren's Flasher   on the right end of the learning curve and Bejarano sticks around for a 4th straight time all on the turf.......2 for 2 at today's distance

2  English Crossing   hard trying grass runner improved quite a bit in latest.......Joe Talamo has an excellent opportunity to get a nice ground saving stalk position and that is half the battle

7  Prettypriceygirl

Long-shot possibilities:   5  Mary Fildes   most of Glatt's stock has been ready.........definitely more than his record so far for Dmr would indicate..........filly owns 2 strong efforts since arriving in the USA and they were both fresh off of the bench as she is today

 

race 7    slight above average clarity

3  Eddies Curl    very strong efforts in both lifetime races and her debut which was a maiden claimer was quite amazing.....had about 9L of trip trouble and only got beat by a length......Freeman has done quite well with limited starters the last couple of months

1  Swissarella   last was OK........MSW debut 2 back was very impressive........will need effort 2 back to have a shot at beating our top pick if of course he runs his race

2  Stole A Kiss    so so effort in MSW debut last.......blinkers off for today and the a.m. work is better........more is needed and might occur today

6  Miss Loujean

 

race 8    average clarity

9  Include Me Out   not the best of posts to start from but Talamo knows this Ellis runner well......the mare is ultra consistent and she has been extremely sharp in the morning.......and why not as she loves the Dmr surface

2  Byrama   vastly improved runner since getting off the grass (no pun intended) and running exclusively on the AW........good post and a red hot jock riding like 1/2 his age

4  Sisterhood   Ward filly likes the Poly and and the trainer seeks out Graded races that his can run on the Poly.......been running in solidly in Grade 3's........training awfully well so the trainer gives her a deserving shot at the big time

6  More Chocolate

 

race 9    slightly below average clarity

4  Chibita    last sure seems to be an improved effort as this Deleon four your old was quite wide and still finished up well.......and he owns good speed in this spot lacking it......might be sitting on lifetime best

3  Just Irish   very slow early......very big kick in the late stages......blinkers on most likely to get him to focus early and sit closer........seems like a smart move

8  I'll Run The Show    very dangerous when he finds the front end and he might snatch the lead here......seemingly needs to dish our top pick and the 11 horse to be loose

2  Localsucess

 

race 10    slightly above average clarity

7  Ethnic Dance   love this runners last......you don't see many loose horses on the lead in turf routes in S Cal fly in the late stretch but this colt did.....a sign he felt terrific....and then he worked terrific on the sod since......can you spell potential S T A K E S horse

1  Christopher Street   bad trip in last somewhat hides a decent layoff run.....but maybe more importantly this Jones runner won his 2nd lifetime start convincingly.....so.....2nd out after the extended hiatus from the track ought to be a good thing

2  Pulpit's Express   seemingly in very good form right now and his only grass race at today's 1 1/16th distance is arguably his best ever

5  Uncle Dick

8  Affrettando

3  Turn On The Pumps
