Del Mar for Sunday 6 Septenber 2015

So so Sunday card for today. Last day of racing at Del Mar Monday and the card looks decent.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

1  My Silver Cat   nice tightly spaced work series and with some works of merit for this Peter Miller 1st timer.......and this field seems somewhat below par thus a good spot for a new shooter

4  Audra   bet fairly hard in MSW debut and ran so so.......improved works since........solid trainer seems likely to get much more out of youngster the 2nd time around

6  Lily Kat   improving sort on the grass.........switches to dirt which she is bred to handle.....and......I like the switch in riders especially for a sprint dirt race.......trainer could use a win

9  Pleasant as Pie   Ellis 1st time starters don't win too often but this 1ster is training to well to ignore

Long-shot consideration:   3  Send Me a Sign    20 to 1 for an Ellis 1st timer (especially with Smith up) says the race was a gimme and more is likely to occur today.......and a solid series of preparatory works supports the notion


race 2    below average clarity

6  Accelerant   just claimed by Miyadi who is solid statically 1st out after a claim........2 of the last 3 for this gelding does Pedroza who has won 2 of 3 riding this fellow including his last

10  American Blend   obviously in bad physical condition but well rested and training as if he has a race or two left in him

5  Noble Kent   decent shot the race shape sets things up for a mid pack runner.....if so this five-year old runner's chances are enhanced

7  Black Beauty   trainer has a dismal record the last few years shipping to S Cal.......but he gets the hot Gutierrez to ride and ride a gelding who just won by 9L at Srp for 7.5K and went off 2 to 5


race 3    average clarity

2  Amaranth   trainer is dynamite turf to dirt and that is the case here with this speed filly who also gets 1st time Bejarano.......3 for 5 at today's distance......filly has won 5 straight non Graded main track sprint races

4  Ben Duchess   does well stalking the lead and can get the position today......7 for 7 on the board lifetime and quite a few of her efforts are better than appear in print

6  Baruta   1 for 1 at six panels and the effort/fig is her lifetime best.......and it was run at Dmr 2 races back.......major player

1  Uzziel   by far at her most dangerous at 6F (3 2 1 0)......solid brother team at the controls....not out of this by any means


race 4    below average clarity

3  Warrens Goldnugget   big run 2 back turf to dirt and the effort is much better than appears on paper.........protected grass race in last........back in a dirt conditioned claimer today......rider upgrade.......improved a.m. work....seems very well-meant for today

2  Feel the Charge   solid early speed here.......over her head in last..........back where she fits today........gate to wire shot here

4  Ipray   was on the improve.....had a small break - return race OK - positive progression continues today

10  Summer Veil   outside draw but owns enough tactical speed to possible get on over and stalk our 2nd choice.......trainer has had a nice Del Mar meet....good rider/trainer combo the last two months


race 5    average clarity

3  Mixio   Gary Mandella has woken up out of the doldrums and has a shot to keep the good times coming here with this colt who ran a good MSW debut and has worked awfully since......rather sure this fellow moves forward today especially with an excellent grass rider staying up

1  Second Summer   big pace up front did set things up nicely for this off pace runner but one shouldn't ignore the fact he broke the 135 flat barrier for one mile on the sod.....not too shabby for a MSW.........and a rider upgrade for today to boot

2  Boone Docks   nice much improved effort off of the layoff at Saratoga........1st on the lawn and at a route but owns a very good Pedigree for both

4  Cowboy   ran a respectable 4th in a fast heat of MSW runners on the grass in last........nice reassuring 4F drill since........rider upgrade........not impossible with a move forward


race 6    average clarity

1  Bellamentary   when D'Amato uses Bejarano lookout......and he has him on a 1st timer that is training very nicely especially for a debuting two year filly......don't mind the one hole in a 5 1/2 sprint

10  Lemon Drop Sis   Hollendorfer is white-hot right now and appears the have this filly 1ster ready to roll at 1st asking.......would have been top pick if she hadn't drawn the outer-most 10 post in a 5 1/2 furlong race

3  Devoted One   D'Amato might have double barrel action here as this filly looks ready to compete at a high level in her MSW debut as well

9  Spindle   sure seems cranked up......very aggressive finish for work regiment - as in 6-5-5-5 day spacing between drills......and mom has tossed 4 that were able to win at two


race 7    average clarity

2  Prospect Park   in my notes "absolutely appeared to love the turf" ......good time and visually impressive in his last his 1st ever on the green carpet......and that is a dangerous proposition for his competition because he has been is one of the better three-year old runners on the dirt in S Cal

3  Soul Driver   steadily improving since the blinkers were added 6 races back......not out of this if there is some more upside left.......will be motoring late

1  Win Space   good trip in latest led to a nice since he is up for more today.....race plot's out for another good trip.........not impossible to upset the apple cart

6  Om   good early speed (maybe good early speed because blinkers are taken off for today) ......switch to Stevens.......might get loose and wire


race 8    below average clarity

4  Skip Tony   tepid top selection needs a rebound to 2014 hint at one and they way Hollendorfer has been winning......... and winning at handsome prices........lookout

1  Just Kidding   tossed out last shot rearing badly at the start..........MSW race 2 back is par for today's higher level......Bejarano sticks with the Eurton three-year old colt

6  Toledo Eddie   overdue drop ......fits if the drop hasn't come too in slipping so much that the step down won't matter much

2  Sea Preacher   not much stalking until his last where he stalked a strong pace and hung on for 2nd.....seems to signal improvemnet


race 9    average clarity

5  Blingismything   consistently tries hard and solid when she brings her "A game"......and her recent best of 19 bullet drill on the grass indicates her best might be put forth this afternoon

4  Thegirlinthatsong   races 3 & 4 back fit......albeit dirt races - but no slouch on the turf....... and as hot as Hollendorfer is she might be up for a rebound especially 2nd out off of a layoff

6  Prize Exhibit   very sharp right now and Gonzalez has been a good fit for this Cassidy Graded winner......three year old filly takes on older but she fits fig wise especially considering the weight break for today

8  Queen of The Sand   very good history on the new Del Mar grass course (4 2 2 0).....and her last shot to run on it very awhile


race 10    average clarity

1  Roman Tizzy   very solid win in latest 1st out following the Cerin claim......very derserved step up of one claiming notch

4  Tulira Castle   ship and a win and make some extra in the Midwest.......and the couple of drills for Ellis indicate the sharp S Cal trainer has kept his good form intact

2  Saint Dermot   last off the layoff is a par like run when you adjust for a very wide trip..........rider upgrade..........dangerous for sure

3  China Prince   claimed for 50K drops to 25K four weeks later......ouch.......flip a coin

8  Mistaken Identity   might wake-up off of the claim as Kitchingman has had a good meet.......but a small pie of the purse pie is more in not using as a winner

5  Celebrity Status   improved work since Ellis claimed.....still winning would be quite the surprise.....another runner I wouldn't use on top
