Del Mar for Friday 30 July 2021

Nice card today. Be back with you tomorrow for Saturday's 11 race card.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

3  Warrens Candy Girl  three year old filly has run par or better for the Cal-bred MSW level many times but she needs to get over her tendency to hang in the stretch.......filly ran her best to date back in very short rest of 16 days so 14 days since her last might bring out her very best today

1  Beautiful Temple   nice improvement in her 2nd lifetime start running 2nd vs open company MSW runners.......turf sprint-turf sprint-turf route scenario and back vs. Cal-Breds........solid 4 work series since her latest race on 20 June.......good pedigree for a route.....should be in the mix from the get go

4  Finnley's Kitten

8  Our Miss Millie

6  Bango Ishernaymo 


race 2    average clarity

6  Melting Snow  filly is 4 for 7 lifetime and a perfect 2 for 2 in fast rated dirt sprint races......and it seems like quite the plus that this three year old has won at 3 different racetracks and is capable of winning on or off of the pace.......trainer Bill Morey is stout 1st following a claim which is the case here and he is off to a good start at the new meeting

2  V Bucks   race two back is solid and a fit at today's higher level......and the fact that Pratt takes the mount for the 1st time hints a rebound to that race is likely........and the rider switch from a so so bug boy (to date) to the meets leading rider makes for quite the rider upgrade

3  Trip to Freedom

1  Mucha Woman


race 3    average clarity

(AE 9  Urban  has a shot if she draws into the field)  SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE

6  French Franc   nice 2nd place finish in her MSW debut at GP which like today was in a five furlong grass race........nice reassuring 4F 12 of 69 work put in a week ago at Dmr........highly likely that Mark Casse means business with the extra moola at Stake for out of town runners

4  Wishing On a Star   very solid a.m. work for this Mike McCarthy MSW 1st time starter and she owns a good pedigree for the grass.......rider/trainer just missed winning yesterday at 21 to 1.......trainer is only 2 for his last 42 with maidens making their debut on the grass but that % might look better after today

1  Zuboshi

5  Topanga Canyon

3  Distorted Diva


race 4    average clarity

2  I'm the Boss of Me   speed type finally got a loose lead in her latest race and crushed the field by 11L running a time that is better than par for today's higher level.......carries 3 lbs less today and once again it appears she can get away from the field in the early stages........two powerful drills at Del Mar since her 26 June race.....should be tough once again

6  Agreetodisagree   fell off some in her latest but she still ran a par like fig for today's level when you adjust for wide trip.........race 3rd back which was the previous time she competed on the dirt is much better than par........a.m. preparation suggests we might see that effort today

5  Taming the Tigress

1  Big Andy

7  The Great Haynes


race 5    average clarity

6  Momma Moca   big awakening 1st time on Lasix in her latest and the race was run off of a 7+ month layoff.......and two of her three grass races in 2020 were also decent.........5 reassuring drills since her 10 June race at GG against open company males......back against Cal-bred fillies and mares today and with quite the jock upgrade.......likely ignored at the windows some

5  Chao Mar  SCRATCHED OUT OF THE RACE  above par efforts in her 2nd and 3rd lifetime starts but her MSW debut fits and it is disguised in its strength........checked early on and ran wide.......low % trainer but not "1st time at a route" which is the case today for this three year old filly......should be a price

2  Unusual Ride

10  Lena's Big Day



race 6    average clarity

4  Atomic Drop   on the right end of the learning curve with few reasons not to believe he can't continue the positive considering that his latest is good enough to win this race and that he has the potential of moving forward again you have one dangerous three year old this afternoon from the D'Amato barn

1  The Chosen Vron   very consistent runner to date will be the one to beat if the two speed horses in the race which are the 4 and the 5 both go hard after the lead......Kruljac's three year old gets the race route to 7F so his finish should be strong for the extended sprint distance and it won't be for many in here

6  None Above the Law

7  Touchdown Brown


race 7    average clarity

1  Farquhar   believe last run off of a 5 month layoff was a gimme to muscle up and run a big race today 2nd out after the layoff.......and the "gimme" was strong and disguised by racing a bit wide stalking/pressing a decent set of fractions.......good post and rider/trainer combo.....easy to like

3  Big Buzz   since tricky trainer Adam Kitchingman claimed this gelding the six year old has been in the every/other mode......1st - 2nd to last - 1st - last - 2nd - you know what that means today

7  Seven Charms

6  Lure Him In

4  Luvluv


race 8    below average clarity

3  Sirocco   colt went off at 10 to 1 in a only a 5 horse field at Lrc hinting he wasn't "live" in his 2nd lifetime start and 1st on the dirt.......he did show good early speed in the route race.......he takes the ever dangerous plunge MSW to MC20K........two solid back to back preparatory works........jock upgrade.......trainer has started the new meeting with a solid record of (7 2 2 0)........8 to 1 morning line would be nice

5  Sometimes Always  trainer Matt Shirer takes over the training duties of this CD  invader following a claim and he will shooting for the extra $$$$ for this gelding ready to roll 1st into Del Mar.......he should be in the mix from the get go

2  Big Well

1  Paint Me Lucky

7  Poseidon Wrath
