Del Mar for Wednesday 29 July 2015

Decent looking card for today. I'd call it a 7 on the 1 to 10 scale. Sure hope the racing surface plays fair as it did on Sunday. So far I have the track even (neutral) only 3 of the 10 days at Dmr so far.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

7  Oil   good history in 2015 (6 1 4 1) and best early in the field .......lone win (and by 8 lengths) was the only time today's jock Victor Espinoza was aboard

1  He Will   rider/trainer have only missed the board once with their last 10 starters over the last couple of months.....1st time Hollendorfer and improved works........both lifetime races are par like for the level.....better than par has a decent shot of happening today

5  Boompa   faced a tough winner in last his 1st outing in some time......2nd time out as Puype as his trainer.....really has gotten sharp in the a.m. including one work at Dmr........deserves another shot


race 2    average clarity

7  Where Was Eddie   impressive MSW sprint turf debut.......set a strong pace being pressed from start to finish.......switches to the dirt for 2nd lifetime start and with an OK pedigree for it.........same or better seem likely today

1  Mr. Zippers   very strong work tab for Freeman who doesn't push them too hard in the a.m......good new sire and mom has tossed two winners from two starters one of which was a Stakes winner

3  Worldwide   useful debut for this Ellis colt and the stout conditioner is much more dangerous with 2nd time starters

4  Nooten   1st time out with Chew as the are good.......four year old has some decent back numbers......trainer has quietly had a decent year and is he often at his most dangerous with 45 to 90 days between starts.....60 days since latest


race 3    average clarity

1  Serbian Syclone   capable of setting an extremely fast early pace on the sod.......and that should be a plus in a 5F grass race with the rail out 30 feet

2  Jimmy Bouncer   3 for 3 lifetime.....two on conventional dirt and one on the synthetic........bred better than average to take to the green carpet....shot to make it a perfect 4 for 4

3  Well Maybe   away for 3 1/2 months but 2 for 2 with Talamo up and training as if he is ready to roll fresh off of the bench....owns a so so turf pedigree


race 4    average clarity  (AE 11  Wish I Understood  has a shot if draws in)

7  One Bye Two   on the right end of the learning curve and now takes a small drop in maiden claiming.....major league rider upgrade.........should be in the hunt from the get go

6  Rich Girl   never lower and holds onto Bejarano........might have much more endurance today to finish up well coming off of a turf route

3  Tequila Mary   decent mc debut at GG beating 8 of 9 foes at one mc notch lower.....solid rider/trainer combo....should be a major player if she builds off of her respectable debut

1  Gusto's Gal   trainer is better than average with maiden claiming 1st hint she is ready


race 5    average clarity

7  Warm Endowment   good MSW dirt sprint dirt fig/effort in the field......bred well for a route and one that is on the sod......trainer is 3 for his last 7 first on the grass

3  Land Over Sea   another with a good sprint debut and a pedigree that is good for the grass and the two turns.......Gutierrrez is riding nicely.....very few bad trips in my notes so far at the two week old Dmr meeting

2  Tanager   1st starter trains as though she has some early speed......dangerous in this spot if she does

5  Good Looking   not much on dirt so far.....but.....bred fine to handle the grass......needs an awakening.....not impossible to have one


race 6    average clarity

8  Anita Marie   very consistent at 6F on main track surfaces.......away since mid Feb. but returns with a trainer upgrade and Puype appears to have his new shooter ready to roll fresh off of the bench

5  Awesome Luck   on the improve with every lifetime start and retains Bejarano who won with his lone mount on this developing filly......seems quite dangerous is she repeats her last and if she moves forward a little again she is likely the one to overcome

3  Bonus Spin   sure will be tough if she brings her "A game" off of the extended trainr in Mullins to get it out of her

1  Lucky Student   might be speed of the speed....rail was fine Sunday but that was 3 days ago

Long-shot consideration:   6  Filly On Fire   2 of 4 lifetime races fit was her debut......the other was off was off a 7 month layoff.........not 7 months but has been away 53 days......good work tab.....trainer has done quite well with limited 2015 starters


race 7    average clarity

7  Housemaker   has only run off of short rest twice in her career....once in GB and once at SA......those two races might be her best two races so far.......12 days since her last.........hmmm

2  Sound City   improved in last......small drop helps and it doesn't concern me much as she only went for $8K at sale in 2013.....not sure she is up to her last but if she is she should be a major player here

5  Lookin for Money    best drill in some time was worked six days ago.......small drop helps......wake up city?

4  Queenofhercastle   should appreciate not facing older......last grass race is quite a bit better than appears in print.....tactical speed / go post.....decent trip seems likely


race 8    average clarity

8  Mighty Brown   sharp 1st work at Dmr since arriving from Arlington Park.......drops to lowest level of career......rider/trainer know each other well both spending plenty of time at Midwest tracks.....sure seems well placed to succeed

2  George's Main Man   on the improve and seems very well prepared in the a.m. for another move in the desired direction

9  No Easy Money   seems better on conventional dirt and drops.....dangerous gate to wire shot

1  Shakahari   trainer been cold for quite awhile and he tends to give nothing away....but.......being cold and all maybe he risks this fellow for his lowest claiming price ever to ease the pain

3  Destino   bad trip in last hides a rebound of sorts.....will be motoring late

5  Saint Adlbert   decent N Cal cold rider
