Del Mar for Sunday 20 July 2014

Another average card again at Del Mar handicapping wise.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  When I'm Calling   GG shipper drops and gets the sought after Van Dyke to ride........and considering how consistent she is that makes this Steve Sherman invader dangerous this afternoon

1  L T Reckless   speed of the speed here but has won stalking so that is a plus.....obviously a suspicious drop off a big win but Diodoro has won his last 7 of 16 dropping following a win

3  Among The Stars   another suspicious drop but the purse is inviting and the owner has a boat load of not drop and win when the purse money is significantly better here at Del Mar

4  Golden Celestial


race 2    slightly below average clarity

5  Tigah   good work regiment in preparation for today's layoff run and drop......good post and good grass be ready as this fellow might be claimed today

1  Zimmer   usually like the sprint - sprint - route scenario with top barns and Tom Proctor sure qualifies for that especially with grass runners

2  Tones   very consistent when entered in one mile grass recent usual he should be part of the mix from the get go

9  Proud Boss


race 3    slightly below average clarity

2  Silk In Silver   lifetime best and it is hidden by a bad trip was her debut which was her only race ever on a synthetic surface.......a ton here if she appreciates the Dmr AW as much as the Bhp AW......likely will sit 1st or 2nd down the backside

9  Itz A Saint   very consistent and drops one level for a good 1st out after the claim trainer from N Cal in Mathis.....would have been top pick if she had drawn a better post

7  Ghost N Your Heart   both lifetime races at Dmr fit well here........claimed by Stute just 8 days ago and the trainer has a good history bringing a horse back in very short rest

4  Thermal Nermal


race 4    average clarity

8  Diva Express   very solid drills at CD.....and I love the fact she was able to pop a bullet 4F drill at Dmr just 6 days after she worked at CD......feeling great despite the rigors of traveling at the age of two

9  Windy Forecast   just bought at sale in April so the barn pretty much knew what they getting.......and the way in which this 1ster is working suggests the assessment of her was correct

1  Maybellene   Baffert with the same old story.......a good story......a baby working as if she is meant and ready for her MSW debut

4  Tara's Tango


race 5    average clarity

6  Tom's Tribute   all 4 lifetime wins are with today's jock Mike Smith......seems to be getting better with (almost) each and every race....never better in his latest......the question seems to be the distance as most of his races have been at 1 mile.....but.... his 1 1 /16th grass race is good

2  Summer Front   five year old has a good history shipping and running well........and that includes x-county.......Joe Bravo also ships in and the jock has an excellent history with this fellow

4  Horizontalyspeakin   seems loose in this spot and that is a dangerous thing when Talamo is the jock especially the last couple of months


race 6    average clarity

5  Shysheisnot   last ought to serve well as a turf muscle her up layoff run........debut 3 back was stellar on the AW at Bhp.......seems very ready to flash her best and her best is quite good

1  Stylistic   very impressive work regiment for this Warren four year old 1st timer.....tightly spaced with multiple works of merit

7  Steel Lady   another working as if she is meant and ready.....and draws the sought after talent of (it's great that he is back) Rafael Bejarano

8  Fast Magoo


race 7    slightly above average clarity

4  Snaps   awesome spot for a turf speed horse that Snaps happen to be........good rider......good trainer.......that'll do

7  Poshsky   all three races since Miller took over fit fine here........likely will try to get a nice stalk position in an affair lacking speed....chances sure enhance if the jock does get that position

9  Valley Cat   on the improve since Hollendorfer claimed in April....and it is a good sign that he takes the seven year old out of the claiming ranks and into an alw race

6  Press Baron


race 8    average clarity

8  Luminance   Baffert two year old 1st timer is working super even by his lofty standards......rather sure this is a good filly

4  Partyin   Bonde draws Bejarano to ride his 1st timer who is working up to snuff and training as if she has some early gas as so many of his top horses have

1  Backstreet Lisa   another 1st timer that I believe is ready to roll after assessing her work regiment........Peter Miller is quite dangerous with 2 year old 1sters and often gets a price

3  Majestic Presence


race 9    slightly below average clarity

11  Sweet Profit   won for fun in MSW debut back in since but working as if ready and she is obviously proven as a "fresh" runner

12  D'ya Knowwhatimean  nice history in sprints on the main track (7 2 4 1).....and her lifetime best was the only time today's jock Joe Talamo rode her

5  Satirical   tossed a clunker in her last her 3rd lifetime start........gets time off to get it together.......1st on the AW but her pedigree for is good

10  Senza Fina

Long-shot consideration:   8  Mum's Truckee   we are off to a good start at the Dmr meeting with our suggested long-shots and can keep the ball rolling here with this O'Neill runner who is way better than appears on paper having multiple bad trips........and.........she handles the Dmr that the trainer has put a good gate jock up because she has been breaking badly of late


race 10    average clarity

3  Noise Of The Crowd   Spawr sure improved this mare winning 1st out following the claim and winning in solid time....seems like a better sprinter but 1 mile is within her reach especially if she can run as strongly as her last

9  Redreethebalance   fits well at the $40K level but well need a clever ride from an outside post at 1 mile on the turf.....jock is capable of giving it

1  Elegant   consistent sort will likely need a little more this afternoon jumping up 2 levels.......but..........she gets a good so many do she can improve 1st out following the claim by a capable barn

10  Plaza De Indias


race 11    average clarity

5  Mahalo Arturo   soft works and no support at the windows in MSW debut last Fall.....likely a gimme......laid up since but working as if O'Neill has him ready to roll at 1st asking and versus much easier

9  Play Maker   four year old gelding has not been very lucky as this fellow has had to cope with bad trips and/or very fast for the given level times.......all his sprints are par or better like efforts when you adjust for trouble

4  Juliet's Tizzy  big race 3 so in last two........most recent drill worked last Sunday is improved and hints at a rebound of sorts

7  Lucky Jack

3  Secret Command

1  Burning
