Del Mar for Wednesday 25 July 2012


Joe Talamo won 5 races Saturday and Sunday so it seems like a good thing that he is our top selection 3 times and our 2nd choice twice today. Also Garrett Gomez as we predicted is on fire at the Del Mar meet and he is somewhere in our selections for every mount that he is on today.  Good luck as always!


race 1    slightly above average clarity

5  Bares Tripper   Peter Miller has been doing awfully well with his youngsters and appears to have this 1st timer ready to roll...........solid tightly spaced work series......meets leading jock aboard

6  Catrageous   quite the prolonged work tab for a 2 year old 1st timer in July.........should be more than ready for Kathy Walsh and Joe Talamo who had a great past weekend along with Gomez

2  Sense Of A Woman   O'Neill is off to a hot start and appears to have put enough into this filly 1st timer to be dangerous in her debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing


race 2    slightly above average clarity

7  Divas And Diamonds   solid move forward in 2nd lifetime start..........3 reassuring drills since including a 3F bullet work just 4 days ago

4  Fraudulentfootnote   Puype first timer has rather strong drills for a mid priced filly maiden claiming affair.......and Puype has used Talamo numerous times over the past few years on mc 1st timers that had some ability in their 1st start

6  Serious   combination of Miller/Gomez again in serious support of this filly maiden claiming 1st timer who has a.m. work that suggests she is ready to roll at 1st asking

1  Gypsey Kitty   being ready with maiden claiming 1st timers isn't exactly a strong point for trainer Mike Machowsky but this filly hasn't missed a beat for almost 3 months in the morning......shot if he breaks the mold here


race 3    slightly above average clarity

5  Inner Grove   faced too tough in last........last win was 2 races back at today's 20K level and with Bejarano aboard........recent 5F drill on the Dmr surface suggests the surface is to this mare's liking......back to Bejarno as well

3  Belle Gallantey   cut back of 1/16 furlong sure looks like a good thing for this filly who tends to flatten a little past 1 mile.......lifetime best was with 3 weeks rest running 1 mile.......same scenario today

7  Really Elegant   wire to wire attempt here....better with short rest and seemingly at her best at one mile........gets both today

1  Party With Brando     been awhile since this Abrams runner fired a good race..........but.........she has been off long enough to shake what ails her......and.......the work tab sure suggests a total turnaround is a possibility


race 4    slightly above average

6  Iaquinta   improved by leaps and bounds last year in Brazil facing better...........laid up over a year but training as if Mandella has this colt ready to roll in his U S of A debut

2  Malibu Knight   broke 3 slow and still managed to win 1st time for Jones and 1st time in California........has closed extremely fast in all 3 lifetime turf sprints

7  Lakerville   another runner with a stellar turn of foot in the late stages and an outstanding jock with late runners on the turf in Gomez

3  Red Defense     last was OK but what this gelding most likely will need is his race 2 back.......just claimed and wheeled back in 5 days.......yikes


race 5    average clarity

2  Miss Communication    3 of 4 career turf races are solid for today's level.....laid up since 31 March but never trained better..........and that is a very dangerous thing when Mitchell is the conditioner

5  Music Thunder   another laid up runner that is training as if he is razor sharp and ready to roll fresh

7  Stanwyck   showed plenty of life in MSW sprint debut finishing up with vigor....and this filly owns a strong route pedigree......and Mr Shirreffs is quite good 1st time he sends a runner long

4  My Tricky Girl   MSW debut is better than appears in print......checked back early and ran a little wide.........Mitchell is solid 1st time at a route and with 2nd time starters.......pedigree for a route is a question mark


race 6    below average clarity

4  Technicality   all his lifetime races with the blinkers off fit fine versus these.......they have been on in last today and takes a significant drop........jockey could use a winner

12  Hout Bay   declining horse until last when this filly made a small rebound..........claimed by Belvoir .......very solid 5F drill for his new trainer.........same of better today

2  Warren's Performer   solid races in last two efforts and the last race is somewhat hidden by a slow start and a rail run on a somewhat dull rail day.....and draws the Dmr meetings top gun to date in Gomez

11  Sunshine High   blinkers on today might get the early gas and solid final time this mare showed 3 races back........and we get a jockey upgrade 


race 7    slightly above average clarity

2  Suggestive Boy    has been facing quite a bit better and consistently running 1st or 2nd..........and gets 3 lbs off.....a ton unless he goes off form

5  Midnight Interlude   turned into a solid Graded 2 runner since switching to the grass........laid up since October but Baffert likely he is ready fresh as most of Bob's horses are

7  Key Decision   ran close behind our top pick in ARG twice.....and showed his merit in winning his last his 2nd start in the good old U S of A

 Venomous   exits a key race in last where he was only beat by 3/4's of a length for the win.........both the winner and the 2nd place horse ran strong races in their next out......has a shot with an "A game" effort


race 8    slightly above average clarity

4  Bev N Bud   all three races/efforts since the blinkers were added fit well here and the last is hidden by a poor trip.......ran on a suspect inside and blocked on the turn.......Talamo knows the maiden well

9  Mary Helen's Storm   strong race in 2nd lifetime start turf to dirt........turf to dirt today and this time drops out of MSW racing

1  Enduring Promise   lead type only takes a long overdo drop out of MSW racing........Hollendorfer has started out the meeting 0 for 11 but he is awfully good dropping from MSW to maiden claiming.....and this speedster looks like he gets what he needs.......a loose lead

2  Dr. Nip   last seems like a turf muscle me up tightener in a non-claiming race to drop back in claiming 2nd out after the O'Neill claim

5  Gifted Monarch   GG invader is improving with every start and now takes that significant drop out of MSW racing

8  Candy's Sunrise   laid up MSW also drops into maiden claiming for the 1st time.....would have rated higher if it wasn't for a lack of printed works  for a horse laid up since 7 Jan......but sure is dangerous if he is more worked/fit than I think
