Decent card today. Let's call it a 7 on the 1 to 10 scale of things.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

6  Moonie   very consistent on the dirt.....takes a logical significant drop.......lifetime best was in her lone race at 6 1/2F on the dirt.....rider upgrade

2  L. A. Magic   seemingly needed a small break and gets one.....nice recent drills........ decent chance to grab a loose lead.....dangerous if she does

1  Miss Bliss   race two back fits......her last does not.......needs a rebound........decent recent 4F work at LA hints we will get what degree is the ? mark


race 2    above average clarity

4  Miss Big Stuff   can really cut out some fractions on the dirt.....1st on the grass but owns a pedigree that should take to it......decent gate to wire shot down the SA hill if she lives up to her breeding

1  Compel   faced a little two tough in her 1st two races in the USA since arriving from GB.....this level should fit much better and we get a rider upgrade (not to mention one high % rider/trainer combo.......should be flying late

6  Gypsy's Rule   won MC debut by more than 1/2 dozen lengths.......been on the shelf since her 2nd lifetime start which was in August.....obviously has shown she can fire fresh in a big way.......and she has a good grass pedigree.....dangerous

3  Amber Louise


race 3    average clarity

7  Amberella   solid forward move in last and the effort is hidden.....4 wide up on a solid pace.......did well to only be beat by 5 1/2L......outstanding 5/8ths drill since.......good history in route affairs......sure seems ready for best......hopefully the bug boy will give him an OK trip

2  Miz Graycee   claimed by Bob Hess in her last which was decent.....but what I really like is the work that she shows since the claim which was almost a bullet drill......seems very significant for Bob Hess who doesn't push them too hard in the a.m.

6  Midnight Candy   woke up in latest with 1st time blinkers........that effort fits at today's lower level......done little wrong in two dirt routes at SA (2 1 1 0)

5  Odisseia


race 4    average clarity

3  Tinderette   speed of the speed in this affair for a filly trained by Jeff Mullins who won her last by 5+ lengths running on the dirt for the 1st time without blinkers

2  Dragon Flower   solid history running less than 7F with the blinkers on (6 2 3 1).....blinkers back on today after yanking them off in her last....trainer does extremely well with limited starters

6  Amazing Lady   claimed by Eddie Truman in her last and I sure like that he gets Bejarano to ride as Truman only seems to give Bejarano very live mounts

1  Hail Mary Play


race 5    above average clarity

5  Fly Lexis Fly   strong wide trip effort in latest.......and one major league rider upgrade with 2 lbs less to carry......lone race on the SA hill fits........seems like a ton and one half if this seven-year old holds form

6  Atta Boy Pete   back to the hill following a dull race on the dirt.......2 of his last 3 races on the hill fit well hot rider/trainer combo

1  Infinite Magic   impressive race on the hill two races fact if there was more speed in this race to flatter his late kick he would have been rated higher

9  Tripski


race 6    average clarity

2  Prime Issue   exits a very fast heat and still almost brought home the bacon........repeat or maybe even 90% of his last should take for the $20K to take advantage of the larger purse.........and Peter Miller is seldom afraid to lose a horse

1  Gutsy Ruler   five-year old gelding is rounding into form and draws the attention of Bejarano and his agent.....making for one significant rider upgrade

4  Sam Slick   better since blinkers were added two races back......away since June but has run well fresh in the past and is training as if he will run well fresh once again


race 7    average clarity

3  Distinctive B   solid win at one level lower off of the 5 month layoff......nice reassuring drill since.......also won off of a layoff last June and came back to win his next as bodes well for his chances today

5  Roy H   runs well with ample time between starts and gets it today........should sit 1st or 2nd at the quarter.......blinkers off today and that is one of Peter Miller's better trainer stats

2  Carlot Cowboy   good history back in short rest which is the case his last (where he was placed at a high enough claiming price so as not to be claimed) appears to be a public work-out and can be ignored

6  Guy Code


race 8    average clarity

1  Miss Gifted   solid move forward in latest vs. much tougher......facing quite a bit softer today.....has to slip off of form not to be formidable in this spot

9  Be Mine   won her maiden debut (MC32K) at Tampa despite a bad trip in a one mile grass race....... and...... winds up in the D'Amato barn for her 2nd lifetime endeavor.........that my one dangerous proposition

4  Unusual Style   produced the most she has shown in quite some time in her latest.....and today she gets a rider upgrade......same effort/energy as her last and she is not out of this by any means

8  Nazareth

3  Sweeter Thancandy

7  Herunbridledpower
