Del Mar for Thursday 24 July 2014

Not an easy card today. Might yield a 2 day carryover into Friday. Let's call it a 4 on the 1 to 10 scale.


race 1    average clarity

4  Peaceluvpeaceluv   decent MSW debut at Lrc......drops into maiden claiming......believe owns a better pedigree for the AW than the conventional dirt......Miller is 33% win MSW to mc

3  Southeast Asia   Glatt runners have by firing on all cylinders to start the meeting......1st timer is training as if he is meant and ready to roll in his debut

5  Bandido Too   trainer is not much with MSW 1st starters bur quite dangerous with mc 1sters.......bought at sale for $25K so putting him up in debut for a tag of 50K makes sense

7  Sacred Temple


race 2    average clarity

7  George's Peach   seems best going a mile on the turf.......mid pack runner seemingly gets a predictably good pace to flatter her stretch run......Stidham is a good grass trainer

1  Doctor Glynis   1st on the grass but bred adequately for it.....1st out following the claim by Victor Garcia and he is a stellar 9 for his last 17 1st out after a claim.....not too shabby 1st on the grass either

2  Hugh Knew   loaded with speed and seems to appreciate a fast grass course and that is what we had yesterday.....gate to wire shot

tie for 4th  pick    3  Josephine's Moment  &  6  Scene Queen


race 3    average clarity

7  Pebble Beach Baby   ultra consistent on the AW.......Glatt is solid 1st out after a claim and is off to a good start at the Dmr pace style fits as there is plenty of gas in the field

3  Rhodium   sprint/sprint/route scenario fits well here........seems at best (and by a wide margin) at today's 1 mile distance

5  Tribal Chatter   best ever is on the Dmr synthetic.......full speed ahead with Maldonado up......jock has started the meet kind of cold but did get his 1st win yesterday

2  Paradarace


race 4    slightly below average clarity

2  Street Sense   logical drop off of the long hiatus from the game.......ran well in MSW debut so she has shown she can run fresh......should be in the hunt from the opening bell

8  Cravin' the Heat   might be at her very best on the Dmr synthetic.......and her recent couple of drills on the Dmr surface hints she is sitting on a big effort 2nd out following the long layoff

4  My Sweet Afleet   on the improve with every start....fits as well as anyone in here if the trend continues in her 1st ever on the AW this afternoon

7  Kristinite


race 5    average clarity

7  Lakota Road   can get a mile on the grass and her last two races both turf sprints are very solid efforts/figs....2 nice reassuring drills since.....likely has held form

1  Coconut Cream Pie   good post......good early speed and speed did fairly well yesterday on the grass.....good history with Baze up

6  Hanserella   very consistent sort in route races especially on the turf.......likely to run well again today but she sure needs to get overcome her strong tendency to hang in the stretch

9  Our Glitter Ball


race 6    average clarity

6  China Girl Lover   most of his career fits in this spot.....and if he can run even 85% of his last on the "dirt" at Lrc on the Dmr AW he will be the one to overcome

5  Perfect Set   suspicious drop.......but then again the purses are sweet at Dmr..... and.......this G Mandella runner draws Bejarano to ride

4  Meringue Pie   dangerous looking speed route horse in this spot.......speed at one mile on the Dmr main track is very dangerous

9  Counting Days


race 7    average clarity

3  Tiz Point   very good drills following a Hollendorfer claim makes for one dangerous runner.....and that is the case here

8  Hadfunlastnight   can't be claimed and likes the Del Mar AW so O'Neill likely will be very ready with this laid up look good at Bsr

9  Roman Threat   monster drop for this Baffert six year old making only his 7th lifetime start......the kind of drop you wouldn't want to claim......but........he might have a race or two left in him....sure fits solidly if he does

10  Rauschenberg


race 8    average clarity

10  African Oil   bred to run all day.....race two back is solid a couple of lengths better than par for the level....back to Talamo who rode that day.....60/40 we see a rebound to the race 2 back

11  Mambo Man   2 for 2 at the distance and owns good speed which he better use from one nasty post......trainer has had the a great year

9  Hog's Hollow   1 3/8ths seems like a good fit......been away 8 weeks but sure is training well enough to be ready to compete at a high level

6  Song To You

Long-shot consideration:   1  Money Clip   on the right end of the learning curve and I sure like the 5 lbs. off and off with a very capable bug boy aboard who sure can ride on the green carpet


race 9    slightly below average clarity

2  Racing For Chasen   last sure looked like a public workout running long on the grass in her two year old MSW drill on the Dmr surface since.....bred to appreciate an AW surface and bred to have a preference for sprint racing.......jock won at a big price with the trainer at this meet already

3  Brazilian Barbeque   showed big early speed in MSW debut at Lrc and had little chance to last running on a dull rail....drops and is bred decently to handle the AW.....shot to wire if speed does as well as yesterday

9  Positivo   claimed by Puype in debut last......nice works since for her new conditioner....brings her back for mdn $50K where he claimed her

7  Hula Girl

4  Oh Dream

8  Zippinaroundtown
