Free selection on some of the days.

race 5    19 August 2017

5  Indoctrination   last appeared to be an indoctrination of sorts and not too shabby of one at that.....rider upgrade to Pratt.....should be indoctrinated now.....believe this colt is sitting on a big race in his 3rd career start and 2nd in the good old U S of A

1  Aussie Fox   was able to clear all from a difficult post 11 in his last.....better post today....retains Bejarano who is likely sitting on a horse who has more endurance today coming off of his 1st turf route....should save ground sitting on or off of the pace .....such a deal

8  Troublewithatee   double barrel action from the D'A as he also trains our top selection.......last appears to be a sprint gimme (and a stronger one than appears on paper) to be ready for today's turf route in his 2nd out following an extended hiatus from the game.....only grass race is solid closing very fast late into a pedestrian pace

4  Lucky Soul

Long-shot consideration:  7  Potent   little shot in his last his 1st ever on the grass as he pressed a solid pace on opening day where speed fared poorly the 1st couple of days on the grass at Del Mar....that and trainer Scott Hansen has been waking-up of late


race 7   11 August   2-1 exacta paid $10.40

2  Majestic Heat   best credentials in the race by quite a bit so it seems a matter of how ready this mare is off of the extended hiatus.......she appears wound up like a top in the morning.....the kind of tightly spaced stout work regiment that is strongly suggests this is not a tune-up

1  Moonless Sky   cut back in distance should be a plus....that and Kent Desormeaux (who can shape up a race as good as any jock) will likely push this filly early as there is a distinct lack of speed in the race

8  Shehastherightstuff   handles the Dmr sod quite well and has one big late kick with a rider in Bejarano who can get the most out of an off pace runner......but she likely will need more pace than anticipated in this affair lacking speed types

7  Dressd to a T


race 4   4 August   4 won and paid $6.00

2  Whatyouciswhatuget   SCRATCHED OUT OR THE RACE

4  One Fast Broad   good work tab for this two-year old filly 1st timer especially for a Cal-bred......and mom has tossed two Stakes winners from two starters......trainer has been rather silent to start the meet...... but...... that might change here

6  Goodlooknbroad   pounded at windows and ran fairly well but not like her backers thought she would.......blinkers on today......likely bet hard again.....but will the equipment do the trick.....we shall see

1  Got an Obsession
