Del Mar for Sunday 25 July 2021

Bad day in general on Saturday but it sure would have been a lot better if our 22 to 1 top choice in race 6 wasn't taken down from 1st and placed out of the money. Be back with you on Thursday as Del Mar races 4 days a week for the rest of the summer meeting.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    above average clarity

6  Bobby Bo   lone start was back on 3 April for this Bob Baffert 2nd time starter and it is better than it appears in print as he dueled in a nasty 2nd quarter after being bumped at the were dynamite for his debut (thus 1 to 2 odds) and they are once again in preparation for today........Prat stays put

3  Affable   both lifetime sprints are solid better than par for the MSW level and one of them (his debut) was run at Del Mar.......trainer Mark Glatt is very stout at getting laid up sprinters to fire "big"........hard to separate top two pick-a-rues

1  Who's the Star


race 2    average clarity

6  Murray   triple barrel action from the Baffert barn as he conditions our 1st, 2nd, and 4th picks........mostly placed as our top choice as his 3 straight 5F gate works to finish his a.m. work are impressive

7  Barossa   expensive well-bred two your old colt draws Cedillo who has been incredibly reliable riding for Mr. Baffert........Bob is just shy of 40% win with his has 175 MSW 1st time starters

2  Drink the Wind

4  Carbonite


race 3    average clarity

10  Hot Box   both 6F grass sprints fit well at today's level and 5F of sod seems like it will be a better fit as his 5F splits in the two 6F efforts is fast especially his last effort which was run on 2 May.....Cedillo wisely stays put

7  Gator Shining   race should have a lively set of fractions and if that comes to fruition this Baltas late running turf sprinter should be flying at the leaders in late stretch......jock knows this three year old well as he has been aboard for 5 of his 7 lifetime starts

3  Exhalting

2  Gates of Heaven

1  Lovesick Blues


race 4   below  average clarity

5  Alexandros   seems like a decent claim by Mullins and company at CD and as you would expect he has put some sharp drills into his new shooter to have him at a peak to take advantage of the lucrative extra moola for shippers

4  Colosi   big race run by this Mark Glatt six year old 5 races back route to sprint off of 43 days rest......route to sprint today off of 43 days rest.......very good history when Abel Cedillo rides this fellow for Glatt (3 2 1 0)

6  Littlebitamedal

2  Bibleman

9  Buttered Noodles


race 5    above average clarity

2  Little Miss Ellie   Cerin and Desormeaux teamed up yesterday to win race one (as our top choice) and they team up again here with this filly trying the turf for the 1st time with an average pedigree for it........four year old just ran her two best lifetime races switching to route racing for the 1st time.......race lacks speed so if this girl handles the sod she should get a great trip saving ground near the front

6  Deise Delight  Prat stays up following a par like run in the 30 May version of this race run at SA......and like our top choice he should be in the drivers seat sitting on or near the lead in a race that seeming will award those that do

7  Viazar

3  Suki

10  Cinnte Winnte


race 6    average clarity

7  Thirsty Chapo   decent MC50K debut over at Lrc running 2nd in a 9 horse field with a gap of 5 lengths to 3rd .........that and when Periban rides Mr Baze his horses are almost always very "live"

5  City of Champions   bad trip in his MSW debut but he still ran 3rd beaten by 3L......but......that final time was poor......but......on the other hand I believe the race was a tune-up to tighten up and be fully fit for his move into MC from the protected MSW ranks......might go off a price

11  Gemini Bay

10  Toasted At Dawn

3  Medina Man


race 7    average clarity

5  Superstition   filly has never missed the board in 8 lifetime grass races all of which were sprints........and the four year old is a perfect 2 for 2 at Dmr......Prat knows her well having been aboard for 8 of her 9 lifetime races.......a.m. preparation is stellar.......hard not to like

1  Bulletproof One   jock does extremely well with speed turf sprinters......thus his 4 wins with 5 mounts on this filly who sure can fly early which she will need to do here with plenty of speed signed up

2  Querelle

10  Bruja Escarlata

9  Rakassah


race 8    below average clarity

6  Parsimony   4 of his last 5 races run fit well in this spot and the two times this O'Neill runner raced at today's 6 1/2 furlong dirt distance he ran efforts that also fit.........away since March but he sure seems ready working a 2nd best of 109 46:4 4F drill one week ago

2  Howbeit   very solid adjusted for trip and pace Santucci figs in his last two 2 races........Cedillo appears to have taken the 1 horse but he drew a tough post and of course Mr Pratt will do

5  Surfing Star

1  Canadian Pride

8  Fashionably Fast


race 9    average clarity

1  Desmond Doss   trainer Miyadi is having a stellar year and he has a decent shot to add to his success here with this five year old who seemingly has never been sharper........Cediilo stays put for a 8th straight race and should work out a nice ground saving trip close to the front in a race that should reward those that do

5  Indian Peak   significant positive switch in trainers for this 1st time gelding who if he brings his "A game" has a shot to upset the apple cart since Miller took over are solid including one on the turf with the dogs up hinting the surgery has helped his demeanor........Prat up and at a price

10  North County Guy

7  Galilean 

9  Brandothebartender


race 10    average clarity

12  Kind But She Lies   lifetime best was run in her latest (big adjusted fig as she was wide on a rail bias) and 4 works since the 11 June race.......6 1/2F should be to her advantage and it will not be for many in this MC20K rider Desormeaux stays put

8  Rowangoeshollywood   voided claim in latest but plenty of time off to recover from whatever was ailing her.........1st time Lasix.......1st time top echelon jock in Cedillo........seems quite dangerous

2  Can Fly

5  Cameo Shores

3  B'esame Me Mucho

11  See You At the Top
