Del Mar for Sunday 22 August 2010


Handicappers Corner

2nd race pick 3 (trying to beat the morning line favorite in all 3 legs) recommended especially considering it is only 12 wagers

3,5 with 2,5,8 with 2,4


race 1    slightly above average clarity

1  May Day Rose   like the fact this well worked 1ster was just purchased in June....Baff knew was he was getting...not quite like the risk of buying a yearling

4  Sarah's Secret   Walsh 1ster is working s if 100% ready to roll in her debut into the racing world 


race 2    average clarity

5  Naughty Mariana   bad trip in last and now a very positive rider switch...smoother trip and the same energy win this

3  Irridescent Red    fronts on in last and it sure moved this filly forward with an effort that is better than par for this level

6  Costa Marta   will need to move forward a little to take this and may with the solid rider and trainer involved


race 3    slightly above average clarity

2  Scorsese   broke a little slow and ran wide in his maiden debut last....Walsh should have even tighter for today

5  Oh Now   another with a tough trip in his last......barn has woken up some

8  Bell Zone   solid debut run in last and good chance to show more in his 2nd lifetime start.....good close on a somewhat suspect rail

3  Fortunate Appeal   two strong races effort/fig wise but why drop this one.....the one to beat if still as sharp/sound as before but I have may doubts


race 4    average clarity

2  Alpha Kitten   sure like her races at today's distance.....can get a nice ground saving chase position

4  Sweet August Moon   major wake up in last and sure has trained sharply since


race 5    average clarity

12  Jiggley    NOTE I GAVE FIVE PICKS HERE BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHO IS GOING TO DRAW INTO THE FIELD.....extremely sharp animal has enough speed to clear from the is he working well

4  Colgan's Chip   best ever in latest and the series of drills since suggest this gelding has held his good form

13  Hey Elvis  very consistent sort will need a clever trip from his outside post....right jock to accomplish the task

5  Swift Winds   recent sharp drills suggest a rebound for this gelding...fits as well as anyone in here if he brings his "A game"

1  Yankee Station   vast improvement in latest fig wise 1st time with that nasty equipment change "gelded" ......1st on the sod but owns solid grass breeding


race 6    average clarity

6  Seeuat Sticknstein   bombed in his 1st out on the turf....back to the AW where his effort 2 back sticks out

2  Good Brother   just claimed by West is a very solid 1st out after the claim and he gets that Bejarano guy to ride

4  Realy Uptown   chased one of the fastest speed types on the grounds in Winter Cap and paid the price in late one in here like that speedball


race 7    average clarity  

4  Woodman's Luck   earned an overwhelming fig with a bad trip in a Stakes race in latest....repeat of that race and an OK trip takes this

1  Mi Marino   what we need here is his race 2 back which is solid here....blinkers on and a good work series he can be prominent from the get go

7  Shane Daniel   nice near miss 2nd in his maiden claiming debut last...smartly steps up....expect even more effort today

5  Thunder Of Zion   useful MSW debut run in last but more importantly training great since...very impressive 6F drill 9 days ago...come on Joy Scott


race 8    above average clarity

4  You Lift Me Up   should get a perfect ground saving chase or near chase position behind a suspect front runner

1  U R All That I Am    same scenario as our top pick

6  Bran Jammas   never better and now gets 9 lbs off...can upset with a good trip

5  Ruffled Feathers   compromised by a lack of pace in the race but still should be a big factor late


race 9    slightly above average clarity

9  Anga   bad trips in last 2 race....worked out to be good figs when accounting for trouble

2  Royal Import   solid return to the races in last...that race fits fin and really tough if moves forward 2nd after the layoff

3  My Last Tycoon   turf fit and likes the extended sprint distance

7  Quietly Waiting   race 2 back is speed in the race and he has a little with a jock that is good from the gate

6  Courtside Action   legged up on the turf....owns a little speed and this race totally lacks it
