Del Mar for Friday 29 August 2014

Good looking card today. Let us hope the track plays even.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

7  Beach Fever   big forward move not only in final time but pace........good drills since.......makes for a good recipe for the same or more horse today

6  Mr. Casanova   nasty start and ran wide in a bad trip maiden debut......connections wisely get him out of claiming.......trainer is 5 for his last 20 1st at route......and the three year old owns a decent pedigree to get a two turn mile especially for a Cal-bred

4  Missing Groom   doubt last effort would do unless everything went his way......but.......his race run 3 back would........stout rider/trainer combo in Bejarano/Hollendorfer 

2  Shaniel


race 2    slightly above average clarity

5  Nava Nataly   outside of coming up lame 3 months ago this mare has been quite consistent in 2014......and......her recent a.m. prowess hints she is going to fire a top effort this afternoon

1  Pursuitofparadise  good efforts in all three Dmr races and the last two are hidden by poor trips......will be very tough here if she gets a good journey this time around and is in the same form as her latest

2  Chippette   won the addition of this $8K race on August 1st in an affair of 5 1/2 furlongs.........and 1/2 furlong more for today appears to be a plus

8  Warren's Assasian


race 3   average clarity

2  Henrythelovepenny   running against track biases effect babies more than older horses and that was the case for this 2nd time starter (wide on a rail bias) who went off favorite in her maiden recent 4F work and drops a couple of maiden claiming levels.........Peter Miller means business

7  Sheezflippinsexy   Belvoir is solid with maiden claiming 1st timers and I like the last 2 preparatory works out of the gate.....both 5F.......and he draws Bejarano who he has teamed up with quite well over the past couple of years

6  Silent Reward   O'Neill 1ster has a decent work regiment tightly spaced and with a couple of drills that indicate she can run some..........and mom has tossed 3 winners from 3 starters

3  Suite One


race 4    average clarity

3  Fantastic Mizz   outside of maybe the 9 horse this Canani runner has been facing better.......last two grass races run fit......and.......the trainer has been firing with regularity the 2 or 3 ever in awhile might be in the cards

4  Intoxicating Move   last looked like a 5F turf tune-up in preparation of today's turf route race......filly has been training well in the a.m........seems well prepared and well meant for a solid one mile grass route today

8  Prettypriceygirl   last (1st out following the Powell claim) was rather strong........tougher post today especially with the turf rail in the 24 ft. position but the trainer sure seems to have this mare sharp in the a.m.

6  Highly Rated

Long-shot consideration:   1  All Leigh   low percentage trainer for 2014 but she is 2 for her last 16 on the sod (13%)......solid wake up on the AW in latest with the blinkers put on.......did fail in lone turf start but it was off of an 8 month layoff......deserves another shot on the sod especially at a morning line of 20/1


race 5     slightly above average clarity

2  Deraptor   best career races by far are his two route races on AW surfaces.......and the very best was his mile effort in his last in a race at Del Mar....two sharp drills since......same or better likely today and that would make him tough in this spot

4  True Ten   blinkers off for today and very sharp for Cerin in the a.m........solid 7F sprint in last and the effort is somewhat hidden (3 wide on a good rail day) ......... and........ it sure seems like a good sign that Bejarano sticks around for a 3rd straight race

7  Ashleyluvssugar   done little wrong in 3 lifetime races on the Del Mar synthetic........last at a route was solid.......blinkers on for today / solid 4F drill showing.......same or better seems likely

9  Luckbox Sam

Long-shot consideration:   5 Know Plans   last two races fit OK (latest is somewhat disguised) .......9 post in last - 5 post today.......should be able to use his tactical speed to find the 1 or 2 path on turn one......shot in this spot if that occurs


race 6    average clarity

4  Friendswith K Mill   owns some solid back numbers.....blinkers on and an improved recent 6F work.....late runner seemingly has plenty of speed in this affair to flatter his late kick

9  Big Tire   moved forward in latest.......and I believe another move in the desired direction will occur today because Bejarano and his agent see fit to jump on the Glatt three year old for the 1st time today

8  Conquest Two Step   done little wrong in 5 lifetime races (all sprints) and his latest was run at Dmr.....1st at a route today........Mark Casse is solid 1st time long and I doubt that the connections were thinking sprinter when they paid $420K for the colt in April of 2013

10  Red Outlaw


race 7    average clarity

1  Covey   three year old filly had a good mc30K debut at Lrc for Ron Ellis.....drops one notch this afternoon......and the way in which Ellis runners have been preforming at Dmr my guess is this filly will handle the new surface adequately

3  Delphia   takes that ever dangerous drop out of MSW racing and in this case all the way to the bottom mc level of $20K........and the selective Mike Smith lands on the Puype filly

2 She's Discreet   trainer seldom has a 1st timer ready to roll at 1st asking but then again he doesn't show works for the given level as good as he shows for this 1ster.....sure seems meant and ready

4  Keepnherinthedark

11  Warren's Purrfect

12  Gisele At Fonz's
