Del Mar for Monday 4 September 2017

Much needed break as Del Mar with it's extra day of racing and large fields makes for some long work weeks. Back back with you on the 16th of September.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

6  General Interest   solid MSW debut and without any action on the board whatsoever....that tells me this Hess runner wasn't fully cranked and that more can be expected today......good post and main man for Hess in Desormeaux up

11  Powerful Thirst 

9  Gringo Star

1  Campainer


race 2    average clarity

1  Woodstock Memory   really responded top the change in riders to Maldonado in his latest......same post and Maldonado remains up.....very consistent in routes in 2017 (8 3 4 1)......smooth running mid pack runner

6  Accelerant

4  Awesome Return

2  Freddies Dream


race 3    average clarity

1  Eric the Trojan   won the August 13th version of this race..........both lifetime races at 5F on the grass at Del Mar with Pratt up are arguably his career two best races....... Carava has had a solid Del Mar meeting and might add to his 26% win total this afternoon

9  Zuri Chop

3  Rocket Heat

8  Secreto Primero


race 4    average clarity

8  So I Sang   strong better than par effort in 2nd lifetime start and he was totally dead on the board.....might not have been that cranked up and likely surprised the connections......if that is true lookout today as a move forward would be tough for others in here to overcome

5  Miss Ricochet

7  Meiji

11  Pretty Owl


race 5    average clarity

4  Retro   rather sure this Richard Mandella 1st time starter is meant and ready to roll in her two year old MSW debut.......very tightly spaced works and many of them quite strong.....good pedigree to get a turf route.......Mandella owes Pratt a good one as amazingly they are only 1 for their last 15 teaming up

3  Breezy Bee

8  Super Good

6  Encinitas


race 6    average clarity

5  Classy Tune   Simon Callaghan sure becoming a force in S Cal and the way he has been going it is hard to not like this steadily improving filly who has a decent shot at making it 3 for 3 at Del Mar....really just needs a repeat of her latest

4  Lunar Express

3  Miss Sunset

6  Bad Ju Ju


race 7    average clarity

3  Kathy's Song   seemingly raced way over her head in her last in a Grade 1 for three year old fillies yet she was beaten by 5 1/2L for the win despite a trip from you know where......faces older but easier today......decent post for Talamo to work out a good trip

5  Jeremy's Legacy

2  Nodiac

1  Starlite Style


race 8    average clarity

9  Zatter   seems like one of Baffert's top two-year old runners as he won his MSW debut in solid time and did so despite being caught 3 wide dueling in a solid pace and still won going away......that race was only 15 days ago yet he still put in a fast bullet 5F work since.....and only 5 days ago

6  Bolt d'Oro

3  Run Away

4  Tatters to Riches


race 9    below average clarity

2  Medaglia Gold   won rather easily to break her MSW at today's one mile distance on the grass.......3 reassuring work-outs since.......Maldonado very likely had his choice of two Sise runners and the other has some talent too......should get a ground saving trip on or close the lead

13  Navajo Dreamer

1  Dawn Traveller

6  Multiplayer  tie for 4th pick

8  Klosters   tie for 4th pick


race 10    average clarity

4  Touching Rainbows   might feel really good as this D'Amato four year old is coming off of a fast race where she was very loose on the lead with only an average set of fractions.....thus the effort likely was relatively stress free......likely feeling great and Prat has options as this fellow showed he can rate some in his effort two back

12  Big League

2  Red Lightning

6  Prime Issue

10  Special Reason

5  Midnight Pleasure
