Del Mar for Friday 13 November 2015

So so card this afternoon at Del Mar.

Best of luck as always especially on Friday the 13th!


race 1    average clarity

4  Moonlight Meeting   solid improvement in last 1st following the Hess claim.........four year old gelding has an excellent shot at repeating if Hess can get similar out of his new shooter once again today.....seems like a good sign Espinoza sticks around

6  Athens   very suspicious drop......but worked a bullet and draws Bejarano........kind of mind blowing.........toss a coin


race 2   below average clarity

7  Player's Charm   an improved recent drill and back in short rest is usually a good combination......likely to get a nice stalk position for a good speed rider who has awoken from the doldrums

4  Inspired Wisdom   one win and one 2nd in two lifetime starts of conventional dirt at today's 6 1/2F distance......seems likely to have plenty of endurance when push comes to shove in late stretch coming off of two route races

1  Juansagain   seemingly has the most early speed but draws a tough post to break from at 6 1/2F......if the bug boy does get this gelding to break well he might be tough to catch with his 7 lbs weight advantage

6  Mr. Zippers


race 3   average clarity

6  Cass in Stone   solid 1st out following the Doug O'Neill claim.........seems like a good claim by the crafty trainer of an improving three-year old......Bejarano wisely sticks around

3  Kenjisstorm   horrid trip in latest so toss it out......race two back is solid and was his 1st with the blinkers on

2  Henry's Holiday   might be a sharp move in last getting this fellow eligible for the Alw 40000s (non-claiming) level.......faces the softest competition of his career today......seems best sprinting on main track surfaces rated fast......sunny skies today

5  Inexcess Time


race 4    average clarity

4  Pure Loyalty    obvious sprint turf tune-up placed over his head in latest.......drops multiple claiming levels for a full throttle go at a mile on the grass today...... and with the meets leading rider in the saddle

1  Out of Patience   seems like a decent claim by Powell who is better than average 1st out following one......and his new shooter should get a nice trip saving ground and stalking our fourth choice who will likely open up a lead

2  Sizzlin' Joe   Carava doesn't get Bejarano to ride too often but his stock is usually very live when he does.....gelding drops back to the level he was claimed at two races back.........some hints that today's equipment change (blinkers off) will be a plus

3  Anythingscookin


race 5    below average clarity

5  Sarno's B F F   1st time starter scratched out of a mdn62.5K yesterday for this lower MC seem quite good for today's lowest MC level offered for two-year old maidens in S Cal

3  One Bye Two   owns significant early gas and appears to like the Dmr surface the most......very dangerous loose on the lead type

7  Passionate Emotion   ran awfully well in a MSW affair considering she went off at 90 to 1........that race fits at today's lower level .......would have rated higher if Bell wasn't zero for his last dozen with 2nd time starters

2  Olotta Shaken


race 6    average clarity  

( AE no. 11 has a shot if gets in the from the also eligible list)

6  Sturdy One   showed improvement considering both pace and final time in a race down the SA hill with 1st time blinkers in her last.......cut back of about 1 1/2 furlongs sure seems to be an obvious plus

2  Whim   1st time Richard Mandella and 1st time on Lasix.....and with works showing that hint this three-year old filly is ready.....dangerous

4  Caradini   both lifetime races back in early 2015 were routes and are better than appear in print......seems kind of strange to return in a 5F grass race but she owns a good grass pedigree and she is training sharply..... and ......with hints of early speed.......retains Bejarno.......might be viewed by many as a turf sprint tightener but I don't think it is

5  Dial a Date


race 7    below average clarity

9  Circling   keeps drawing wide posts and running a bit too wide.......cut back in distance and another jock (the meets top gun to date) gets a try at getting her on over by turn one.....recent a.m. prowess hints she is up for her very best this afternoon if of course she handles her 1st ever on the on it sure say she will

8  Cadet Roni   just fired lifetime best in latest......deservedly steps up.....1st at route but she owns a pedigree that you would think should handle it

10  Runaway Cherie   believe Hollendorfer and company were a bit surprised by the performance of this filly in her MSW debut as she went off at 12 to 1 in only a six horse MSW field and won in solid time........might not have been all that cranked up.......she should be now......tough post or would have selected higher

5  Sweetrayofsunshine


race 8    average clarity

7  My Silver Cat   solid MC20K win in 2nd lifetime start.......placed well to win......Miller isn't afraid to lose a given horse as opposed to so many others who get a little too high on their horses

3  Warren's Cracker   decent history in sprints since the blinkers were removed.......6 1/2 should help this late runner be a factor in this affair which should yield a solid set of fractions up front

6  Seaward Cottage    won like a good thing in 5th lifetime start and 1st time running without the shades........well spotted to win in a 16K nw2......same jock and same distance.....not out of this especially if she builds off of her last

2  Unusual Storm

4  Flexible Ethics

1  Tight Lines
