Del Mar for Friday 24 July 2015


Slightly dull inside on Wednesday. Very dull inside on Thursday which is tough on speed. What will we get with the sun going down with the late afternoon/evening card. Sorry to say it is hard be confidant. 

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

8  Lynn's Chancie   good-looking work regiment for this V Garcia 1ster and she might have caught a weak group in which to debut......same owner/breeder/trainer/mom scored in a mc40K debut in 2010.......and Garcia 1st timers have been performing well of late

1  Rush of Day   very solid tightly spaced prolonged work tab strongly suggests she is meant and ready for her return to the race wars.......and she drops to the lowest level of her life

9  Blondy's Reward   both lifetime sprints on conventional dirt are better than par.......conventional dirt at Dmr once again

6  Fashioned Gem   drop seems alarming somewhat but if this filly is still in good health she should fit in this mid priced maiden claimer

Long-shot consideration:   4  Sheswildnfree   decent debut and her trainer is decent with 2nd time starters....should be a price because her trainer isn't exactly a big name in S Cal


race 2    average clarity

4  Fort Caddy   works look "night and day" beter since being gelded........race three back hint we will get more than that today

1  Private Jock   invader from up north has one win and one 2nd in two lifetime races on the conventional dirt.....and his last at Otp was very solid

5  Wings of Mojave   hello Dmr and/or hello new trainer.....just popped a best of 50 bullet 1st work on the new surface.....vastly better than he has been showing at SA in the a.m......seems primed for step up 1st time out following the Pender claim

2  Chief of Staff   2 of 5 lifetime dirt races fit well here and one of them was at a route......1st class rider/trainer combo


race 3    below average clarity

10  Counterplay   blinkers on.....1st time gelding......significant rider upgrade.....a trifecta of good stuff.....race two back fits decently and is disguised be a bad trip

3  Carlos Dangerous   decent forward move in 2nd lifetime start 1st time with blinkers......rider upgrade......would have been top choice if inside speed didn't have such a brutal day yesterday

9  Rincon   MSW debut last sure looked like a public work........drops into maiden claiming likely ready to roll with plenty of doubt put into the minds of the claiming vultures

2  Oh Mercy Me   OK mc debut at today's that he is in for a 50K tag this time rather than taking weight off in at 40K.....good sign he came out of the debut in good shape


race 4    below average clarity

(AE 11  Friendswith K Mill   has a shot if draws into field)

4  Tribal Tribute   just claimed by Puype who is off to a good start at the new meeting and he brings his newbie back for 40K where he won in his last.....solid history on the grass at the distance (5 2 3 0)

1  Best of Bourbon   best on the grass and finally gets to run on it for the 1st time in 2015......owns some efforts on the sod last summer that would be very tough here.....trainer is stout dirt to turf

8  Sizzlin Joe   claimed by Hollendorfer back on 3 May......finally gets back to the races and sure is working like he is ready........2 for 5 at the distance on the grass.......omly 2 for 20 at other turf distances

7  Royal F J   doesn't often run in turf routes mostly because of his prowess down the hill....but....owns a couple of  turf routes that fit fine here


race 5   average clarity

8  Market Order    takes a significant logical drop.....chances are enhanced from his outside post if he gets yesterdays outside biased track

5  Win Quietly   Puype seems to have picked up a new shooter from the Midwest who looks highly competitive for today's 16K nw2 that Puype has been able to get two works into his new runner since arriving in S Cal

7  Pefiolo   Baltas is off to a good start at the new meeting and is extremely dangerous when Bejarano rides for the 1st time with one of his horses

4  Omdurman   rated too low if speed and the inside are better that Thursday......1st on the dirt but bred OK for it

Long-shot consideration:   6  Trash Talkin   just claimed off of a dull effort but continues to work like he can run some.....responded to being taken off the pace 2 races back......maybe that's what he needs.....trainer does well with limited starts including 1st following a claim


race 6    average clarity

3  Sky Kingdom   1 1/2 mile marathon's are definitely his thing......ran 2nd in this race the last two years but the races were on the AW........real dirt now which he seems tp prefer

1  Lideris   comes from far back......extra 1/4 mile today should help him get up to the pack before time runs out.......impressive 1 mile work-out on the dull Dmr dirt under 1:40 flat

5  Big John B   distance sure fits but I'm not sure the dirt does.....major player if he can handle the surface

2  Cat Burglar   can handle the distance.....bit of a poor effort in since hint he rebounds today


race 7    average clarity

3  Bench Light   loves the 1 3/8ths turf distance.......likes the new Dmr grass course.....and 1st time Bejarano.....that'll do

1  Tiz Dynamic   seems likely to sit 1st or 2nd in the early stages and he is capable of rating.......Prat seems to have options and control in this race....and Prat sure can ride

6  Which Market   Dan Blacker is more dangerous 2nd out after a claim.......gelding seems capable of getting the marathon distance

7  This One's for Mel   improving of late and training awfully well since his and ready but the 1 1/2 is a question mark


race 8    average clarity

7  Let the Girl Go   good debut......comes from a solid family....same or better seems likely today......Kory Owens is 3 for his last 8 with 2nd time starters

2  Bella Breeze   very impressive speed for a cheap maiden claimer.....Doug O'Neill and company are on a roll all of a sudden and might add to their win column here

5  Lady Regina   debut way back in March 2014 is solid here.....Baffert 2nd time starter seems ready once again 

11  Matter of Luck   filly moved forward in 2nd lifetime start.....rider upgrade and blinkers on....trying to move forward again today.....fits if she does

10  Felicity Doll   might be rated too low.....dangerous looking tightly spaced work regiment....and Lewis is capable with mc 1st timers

13 Scratchmeifyoucan or 14 Elimination    whichever AE gets in is 6th choice as both take a significant drop down in maiden claiming
