Del Mar for Friday 10 August 2018

OK card for Friday. Let's call it a 6 on the 1 to 10 scale of things.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    above average clarity

2  Convince   keeps getting better......and better.......and better.........and so does her a.m. work......seems ready for even more this afternoon

1  Confidentially   useful MSW route debut which should make for plenty of endurance for lifetime start number two.....that and her pedigree says the longer the better

4  Aunt Lubie   filly has been bet hard in both lifetime starts but hasn't run too well.......blinkers on today to help her focus and Prat sticks with her for a 3rd straight race.......deserving of one more MSW race?.......we shall see


race 2    below average clarity

3  Isee It in Hiseyes   trainer Deleon is quietly having a good 2018......1st on the grass for this hard trying consistent three-year old but he owns an adequate pedigree for it......and it seems like a good sign that he has run well on 4 different dirt surfaces

1  Stop the Violence   toss out last as his trip was bad........race two back is quite fast.....average at best pedigree for the turf or would have been top choice

4  Old Indian Trick   average "real" number earned in his 4 lifetime starts isn't anything special but it is when you take into account a couple of trips that compromised his chances quite a bit.......and of the three given picks I like his turf pedigree the best


race 3    below average clarity

7  Positive Numbers   trainer Bill Morey is having a stellar Del meeting and a very good 2018 in general........laid up three-year returns as a 1st time gelding and takes that ever dangerous drop from MSW racing to tab at GG is solid......all systems go for his return to the races

11  Street Zombie   rider upgrade and a cut back in distance that sure appears to be a plus.....Hess is 15% 1st out following a claim with his last 100 and he might up that 1% today

4  Imagineiamfastest   53 to 1 for a Miyadi 1ster has gimme written all over it.......we more than likely will see what kind of race horse this three-year old gelding "really" is today

2  He's Out to Sea

8  Wild Wild Kingdom


race 4    average clarity

4  Adios Cali   trainer is dynamite 1st out following a claim as an unreal 41% win with his last 147.........that and this filly was our top pick in her latest which also was an 8K claiming race and might have won if it wasn't checking and getting boxed on the turn

8  She'sluckythatway   better in her latest and her a.m. work since is vastly improved....if she runs to her works she can upset the apple-cart at one big price

2  Tuscan Beauty   five-year old seems to like the Del Mar surface with 2 2nd's in 2 races on it and a couple of preparatory drills at Del Mar that look good.....doubt her last would be good enough here but if she can find her race 2 back......lookout

10  Autumn Twilight

9  Lucky Student


race 5    average clarity

5  Ask the Customer   poor start in her two-year old MSW debut and then she displayed plenty of life after that.....1st on the lawn and a route for her 2nd start and for trainer in Proctor whose stock has been totally ready so far at the Dmr meeting.......and he puts up his main man Drayden Van Dyke

1  Barbadolla   useful MSW dirt sprint debut is better than appears in print.......that and the race in all likelihood was a tune-up for today's turf has tossed 2 turf runners from 3 starters and this girl if not today sometime in the future can make that 3 for 3

6  Marrazano   good work tab for this decently bred MSW 1st time starter for new to the scene Luis Mendez whose 1st timers have for the most part been ready to run.......speed and endurance has been put into this youngster and his bloodlines for a turf route seem decent

3  Hyde Park Corner

7  Angel Alessandra


race 6    average clarity

6  Watch Me Burn   on the improve with every start and her latest is better than it appears in print as she was loose in decent pace on a dull inside on opening day and that is not where you wanted to be......solid reassuring 4F work since.....hard not to like this filly even vs. the boys

3  At the Margin   another who is on the right end of the learning curve with few reasons not to believe her progress can't continue this afternoon unless she doesn't handle the Del Mar surface

2  Grab the Munny   might be a good claim by Sadler of a two-year old gelding that has done little wrong in both lifetime races.....not out of the win picture by any means

1  Baby Frankie


race 7    average clarity

9  Cordialty   outer-most post but this mare owns plenty of early speed to clear most of the field by the back-stretch.......mile one seems to fit her best........lifetime best was in her latest and her drills since then suggest she will repeat the effort

7  Princess Roi   OK layoff run in latest but she will need to show more 2nd out after the long layoff.....but she did have an excuse in the race as she broke thru the gate prior to the start......almost always a big negative......that and she put in a solid bullet turf work our top selection she should be one of the early front-runners

4  Lynn'es Legacy   if this affair sets up for a late runner this gal appears to have the best shot of those who will sit towards the rear of the field in the early stages........very smooth runner for Bejarano so far .......dangerous sort from the O'Neill barn

3  Shehastheritestuff

6  Cheekaboo


race 8    average clarity

1  Staythirstymyamigo   exits a fast race at the MC80K level and shows up in a MC32K race.......her number earned sure fits well today's lower MC level......and why not drop as she only went for 10K at sale.......she should be in the mix from the get go

8  Romolina   bet very hard in her MC40K debut and ran decently but not like she was bet.......drops a notch and with a solid bullet drill out of the gate since.........might get things right the 2nd time around as Molly Pearson is outstanding with beaten favorites (40% win & 80% in the money with her last 35)

6  Party All Night   dangerous looking work tab for this Machowsky 1ster.....and mom has tossed 5 winners from 6 starters and most of the winners were able to graduate at two

5  Secret Maneuver

7  Disco Tale

10  Portal Creek
