Del Mar for Sunday 29 July 2018

Kudos to Del Mar for putting on one nice Sunday card as there is only one claiming race and that is a maiden $62,500 in race one.  Be back with you one Wednesday.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    above average clarity

3   Tiz Coffee   the D'A is starting to heat up and he just needs to get the same energy/effort out of this filly as she produced in her latest to be tough here.......but needs a better trip from his jock today

5  Danuska's My Girl   over the years Hollendorfer has been very stout with the MSW to MC move..........filly has been away sine Oct but she is training as if she is more than ready to roll.......only lifetime race at Dmr fits and is hidden in its strength

1  A Little Unruly   another taking that ever dangerous drop from MSW racing to maiden claiming......trainer/rider have been unreal in their last 10 with 5 winners and the other 5 hitting the board

7  Exes N Ohs


race 2    below average clarity

7  Jet Set Man   runs very well "fresh" and he is 11 months fresh today......all 3 lifetime races at 5 furlongs on the turf were at Del Mar and fit well......rider and trainer have been teaming up with decent success the last two months or so

2  Dreamer's Reality   another laid up individual who has shown that he can handle running fresh off of the bench.......when last seen at SA in April he fired a very strong effort down the hill winning despite a very wide trip

3  Hollywood Square   solid layoff run/win to graduate in a race down the SA hill 6 weeks ago........4 reassuring works since......and a significant rider upgrade for today......not out of the win picture by any means

1  King Abner

8  Salient


race 3    above average clarity

8  Shanghai Tariff   Midwest trainer Jimmy Divito (3 1 0 1) won yesterday's nightcap as our top choice ($13.80) and appears to have another ready to take advantage of the bonus money for out-of-town horses.......three year old filly is (5 2 3 0) since the blinkers were removed......and she sure appears to love the Dmr surface with back to back bullet works since arriving

7  Anonymity   lifetime best and a solid fit at today's nw2 alw level was her lone lifetime race at Del Mar and it was her MSW debut......her other two lifetime races aren't too shabby either

2  True Royaity   might get a dream trip if our top selections go head to head early and do each other in.......trainer is rather hot and he has had solid success with Van Dyke of late

4  The Spiral Jetter


race 4    average clarity

6  Colonial Creed   like the turf pedigree for this Baltas 1st time starter and Richard sure appears to have his two-year old filly fit and ready for the challenge of debuting in a route turf race

9  Kathryn's Sky   like our top selection this McCarthy 1st time starter has enough a.m. work put in to have a decent chance at handing the 8F of turf offered here.......rider and trainer have won 2 of their last 3 teaming up

11 AE   Hyde Park Corner   two-year old filly ran 2nd vs. the boys in Ireland on the turf at only one furlong less than today's race when last seen on 21 June.....and her previous race also against the boys turned out to be a "key race..".......dangerous sort for sure

10  Vibrance

1  Summering

5  Algorithmnblues


race 5    average clarity

2  Unique Bella   talk about the controlling speed in a race and with Mr Money Mike in the saddle........4 for 4 in fast rated route races (all of which were Graded races) with the smallest margin of victory 2 1/4 lengths........yikes

6  Yuvetsi   continues to get better and better and better......and her drills since her lifetime best and 1st around two turns hint she can improve once again.......the "now" horse is always intriguing and this girl sure qualifies as a "now" horse

3  La Force   talk about a race that played into her hands in her last racing endeavor........a brutal pace up front set things up for her in her latest as she sat last and passed tired horses


race 6    average clarity

1  Roadster   yet another brilliantly bred 1st time starter from the Baffert barn........colt is the only horse in the field to work at today's 6F distance.......two year old seems highly likely to finish with vigor

10  Jefe   colt acted up prior to the race and still preformed well especially in the way he finished late.......that and his pedigree bodes well for his chances of appreciating another furlong to work with

6  Gunmetal Gray   solid works for this Hollendorfer 1st timer especially impressive are the 3 straight 5 furlong works spaced only 6 days apart.......all wound up and ready to roll......danger city here

9  Parsimony

7  Savagery


race 7    average clarity

8  The Tulip   ran 2nd to two "monsters" in her last two racing endeavors and her race two back on very firm turf is about 4 or 5L better than par......and yesterday's turf was very firm and the rail position is once again at the 12 ft position

10  Fuerza   (3 2 1 0) on firm turf out East after going on Lasix......but......3 unimpressive races since Baltas took over the training duties........but........boy are the works improved since this mare's latest run on 1 June.........Richard likely has figured something out about the new addition to his barn......danger city at one big price

2  Poster Girl   gimme/go situation for this Chew five-year old mare makes total sense as she has run 2nd and 1st the two other times she ran 2nd out following a our 2nd choice she should go off a price

7  Quebec

6  Cheekaboo


race 8    average clarity

2  One Fast Board   3 for 5 on fast rated conventional dirt and I doubt this Mick Ruiz filly has ever trained any better.......2 for 2 at Dmr and one of those races was at today's 7F distance

4  Spiced Perfection   ultra consistent sort on the dirt (8 3 4 1) and (3 2 1 0) at Del Mar.......runs well with ample time between starts and Brian Koriner shows patience and gives it to her.......hard not to like

1  Loving Lynda   D'Amato is starting to heat up and he sends out a filly who is improving and actually beat our 2nd choice in a Cal bred Stakes route race........if fact if this was a two turn race she would be our top pick-a-rue........still she is not out of the win picture in this Stakes race at 7F by any means

7  Just Grazed Me


race 9    average clarity (SHF carryover)

4  Save Ground   blinkers off has been a good move as the two races since they were removed have led to a lifetime best in her latest and a win in her previous race..........does well given decent rest and gets it today

9  Drizzy   nice 1st ever on the grass in her latest in a 6 1/2 furlong race down the majestic Santa Anita hill grass course.......eight works since the 17 May race beefing up for today's 1st at a route......and gets a significant rider upgrade for a grass race.......very dangerous pointed to today runner

2  Raven Creek   Mullins is quite chilly to start the Dmr meeting........but.......this colt loves the lead and likely can have it here......and T C Baze knows this colt well having been aboard for all of his lifetime races

11  Unpossible

12  California Journey

1  Six Point Rack
