Del Mar for Thursday 3 September 2015

Decent Del Mar card today.

Best of luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

6  Sooner Time   clunker in latest.........maiden debut 2 back is strong........Bejarano up for a 1st time today........rebound city?

4  Aiming Straight   2 of her 5 lifetime races fit fine here.....especially strong is her race 3 back.......a rebound to the effort would be nice

7  Alizarin Beauty   wide trips in both lifetime starts.......decent recent work tab hints she might be up for her best ever......still.......needs a better trip today versus tougher than she has been facing

3  Tumbleweedprincess   race 2 back is good......but this filly might not care for 6 1/2 furlongs.......we shall se

 

race 2    average clarity

2  Zanbo   Bejarano owns all 4 lifetime grass wins for this mare....he's aboard today for the 2nd out after the Belvoir claim........back to the $40K level Belvoir claimed her for.........good post - good rider......should get a nice trip

1  Fantastic Mizz   solid move forward 2nd out after the Carlos Lopez claim.......and I like the fact she produced the solid effort/fig stalking the lead

4  She's Flush   done little wrong in last 4 grass races........and drops to a level she fits solidly if she hasn't slipped any

7  Jade With Envy   consistent smooth runner steps up some hinting she might be on a rebound of sorts........Baltas/Graham are 11 for 13 in the money as a team

 

race 3    average clarity

6  Brookes All Mine   decent work regiment at LA but what I really like is her 1st drill at Dmr and the fact she is running 4 days later off of a 5F gate work......that tells me she is likely meant and ready in her debut for O'Neill and company

5  Solfege   La-bred but she went for $45K as a yearling (not cheap for a La-bred) and she is working well since arriving at Del Mar for Keith Desormeaux......mom has tossed 1 winner from 1 starter and a Stakes winner at that.......another dangerous 1st time starter

2  Of Course   works are decent for a two-year mc40K 1ster........like that the last drill is her best (and at 5F) and it was worked only 6 days ago

7  Scarlet Emerald   dropped in last and was able to snatch 2nd.....drops again

Long-shot consideration:   9  Hennessy Storm   decent works for this Molly Pearson 1ster and Molly is decent first time out of the box.....hints of early gas in her a.m. work

 

race 4    above average clarity

2  Heat   horrendous journey around two turf turns in latest.....lost about 10L.....was beat by 10L.....strong drills since......see you Perez......hello Nakatani.....gelding owns an excellent turf pedigree for a Cal-bred

8  At Ease   another with a brutal trip in last.......in this case it was his MSW debut.......smartly steps up out of claiming........Maldonado has been chilly.....he can jump starts here with a decent ride

3  Sir Cat   big wake-up with the blinkers put on in last.......and the extra 1/16th for this afternoon looks like a plus

4  Arms War   1st timer is working decently.......still........he seems like he might need a race for his best.....smaller piece of the pie seems more likely

 

race 5   above average clarity

2  Karma King   nice going away 6f dirt sprint win 2 back in his 1st ever at Dmr......over his head in his next which was a turf route.........back where belongs today .........and he should finish up well today at 6 1/2F on the dirt coming off a route grass effort........and a sharp recent drill to boot

9  Moonlight Meeting   just claimed by Truman and he wisely puts Desormeaux up who is 2 for 2 on this gelding......0 for 7 with other riders......seems likely to sit in a nice mid pack position in what should be a very lively pace up front

1  Love de Car   plenty of speed to flatter his off pace style.....race 2 back his only lifetime race at 6 1/2F is decent running 3rd despite a 4 wide trip

5  Harbaugh   might be speed of the speed and he best be as he appears to be a lead type only.......drops and gets Bejarano........works are decent......might be ready and really fly early with those "fresh" legs

 

race 6    average clarity

3  Pippappy   claim back by Sise......runs like he wants a route and gets one for the 1st time.....good post and blinkers on to get him going early........seems likely to get a nice trip

4  Dirt in Your Face   Yakteen is 13 of his last 15 in the money with 1st time blinkers.......1st time blinkers today and just popped an impressive bullet work.......best ever today seems highly likely if he takes to route racing......owns a decent pedigree for it

8  Merle    has shown plenty of talent on the grass and a couple of the efforts are disguised by bad trip.......drop MSW to mdn20K for 1st ever on the dirt......Drysdale has won with 7 of his last dozen 1st time in maiden claiming......yikes

10  L 's Choice   continues to train like he has talent........maybe the drop and blinkers on for today brings it out in the p.m. for the 1st time today

Long-shot consideration:   2  Pleasure Point   not much showing since her maiden debut 5 races back which was very strong (and hidden) and at today's one mile distance.....recent improved work hints at a rebound

 

race 7    average clarity

6  Tizcano   strong 5F grass race at today's same race level and the rail was at the 30 ft position like today..........had the 7 post........6 post today.........same rider........and it is Espinoza'a only mount of the day

5  No Silent   last which was at today's abbreviated turf sprint distance of 5F is decent........likely only needs slightly better to handle the rise of one claiming level

3  Boozer   fits if ready fresh off of the 6 month layoff........Glatt is decent with fresh sprinters

2  Turnover   won his lone "fast" conventional dirt race by 6L in great time......strange placement by Baffert......maybe that is why he is only 2 for his last 50 1st on the turf......still........pedigree for it is decent and hey it is Bob Baffert

Long-shot consideration:   8 Mr. Sexy   lifetime best by far was her only career 5F turf race........a solid 55 flat win at Del Mar last summer run off of along layoff......away since December.........working well........hmmm

 

race 8    average clarity

2  Alltheleavesrbrown   only went for 10K at sale so why not drop to mdn20K........all 4 lifetime races fit well here.......if of course he takes to his 1st run over conventional dirt.....training on it as if he will

1  Tizmatic   on the improved with every start......fits if the trend stays intact or today

7  Pyrotechnics    very slow heat but he had a brutal trip very wide on a good inside day.......deep closer should be motoring late

9  Street Plank  last was likely a sprint tune-up and the effort is not too bad beating 1/2 the field despite a bad trip.....all set for 1st at a route which he is very well-bred for

11  Ladies Man   par like run at 7F in latest.......has some early gas and best use it to get decent position by turn......not the best pedigree for a route but he did run well at one furlong less albeit around only one turn

4  Vartan   dangerous speed.....likely will attempt to go gate to wire
