Del Mar for Thursday 26 November 2015

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  Heed to Speed   just claimed by a red-hot Peter Miller and he was able to get this young filly to work 13 furlongs within 6 days.......plenty of endurance put into her for her 1st ever route endeavor which she is bred to handle......sure seems meant and ready

5  Sarno's B F F   not the best of trips in MC debut.....needs a cleaner trip and needs to handle two turns.....another hot trainer in O'Neill to get it out of her

7  Mended   seemed to be out for air in last running very wide in a protected MSW race.....back quick and back where she was claimed and Keith Desormeaux is strong historically 2nd out following a claim

6  Good Looking


race 2    average clarity

1  Nicardalic Rocks   on the right end of the learning curve and a repeat of his latest has a decent chance of getting the job done here......and if he progresses once again he will be rather solid

6  Twirling Tiger   invader has been facing better and fits today's race condition awfully well.....1st time at a route is a ? mark but he owns a good pedigree for one

3  Sugar Buzz   another on the improve and appears to appreciate two turn racing........might be ready for a move forward as his recent a.m. work is improved......not out of this by any means

4  Mishegas


race 3    below average clarity

2  Gift Of a Star   strong awakening in 2nd lifetime start........should finish up well coming off of an 1 1/8th turf race........been awhile since McAnally won a race but the Hall of Fame trainer might here

12  Margaret Reay   better speed in latest with the addition of blinkers.....might be up to her 2014 turf form which would likely make for graduation day this afternoon......could have graduated in 2014 but spent too much time running over her head

1  Yaffe   very flat past one mile on the sod.......maybe blinkers on can help her stay the extra 1/ recent bullet 4F drill hints it might

6  Untouchable U

Long-shot consideration:   3 Tap Dancing   has a pedigree that screams turf route.......finally gets a grass route race after 5 sprint races since arriving in the good old U S of A........and gets it off of a work tab that hints she is sharp for one


race 4    below average clarity

2  Smooth Talker   bit too ambitiously placed in last......back where she fits and fits for a trainer on fire in Doug O'Neill

1  Bar Car    last was so so but a bullet work since hints at an improved filly......seems at her best coming from off of it some (blinkers off should help that) should the switch to Nakatani

8  Warrensdollarsigns   last does not get the job done (was dead on the board)........race two back could.....tricky trainer in Steve Knapp.........rebound in form is possible

6  Shakeitupbetty


race 5    average clarity

2  Tiz a Classy Lass    Marty Jones has broken out of a prolonged slump and is quietly having a good meeting with limited starters.......4 or 7 lifetime one mile turf starts fit well here for this mare including her last.......good post - good rider - and a trainer firing on all cylinders......easy to put on top here

7  Jade With Envy   smooth running mare........sure a plus on the grass where trip is most of the battle......2 for 6 at one mile on the turf......0 for 10 at other mile today and back to Bejarano who has fit this Panic Stable filly well in the past

4  Peggy Sue's Loose   2 for 2 with Desormeaux in the irons.........won the SA addition of this race in her last......seems likely to get a nice ground saving trip somewhere near the front end of the race

3  Stole a Kiss


race 6    average clarity

9  Patriotic Diamond   only Stakes winner in this allowance race and she won the race as a maiden.....thus she is still eligible for the filly nw alw level.......retains Bejarano who has been up for all 3 of her lifetime starts

8  Forthenineteen   tossed a clunker in her last but take note as there wasn't any action on the board at all.....back in shorter rest hints the race was needed......race 2 back with a better trip has a shot at getting the job done

1  Sambamzajammin   beat our top choice in her latest.....solid in the a.m. since.......good trainer with two-year old runners........might have considered on top if it wasn't for a struggling jock sitting on a tough post

3  Run Like the Boss


race 7    average clarity

2  Up With the Birds   Graham Motion has been firing with his limited starters and ships in this five-year old off of a big 2nd in a prestitious Grade 1 at WO at today's 1 1/2 distance........a true marathon runner and quite a few in this race are not

6  The Pizza Man   only beaten by 4L in the Grade 1 B C turf........very impressive in his two previous (very prestigious) Grade 1's.......very consistent on any grass course whether it is yielding/good/firm

14  Big John B   obviously needs a rebound (lost to our 2nd pick by 15L in B C Turf).......3 for 3 on the Del Mar grass course should help provide should firmer turf

3  Danas Best


race 8    average clarity

5  And Then Some   both lifetime races sprinting on the dirt are solid here with a better trip.....blinkers on today to help his focus and also a new jock......tough in this spot if changes work out

2  Silver Chrome   takes the ever dangerous drop out of MSW racing for lifetime start number two and runs for the 1st time as a gelding.........flashed some impressive drills in early Oct likely right after going under the knife........steady easy does it weekly works since.......probably not to show too much.......danger city

6  Finnerty's Folly   sorry Ty but Eikleberry off has been one powerful handicapping tool..........two year old fell off some in latest following fairly decent rider and a rebound and this youngster should be dangerous

3  Little Mustard

12  Deputy Dane

10  Sammy Wonder Stone
