Del Mar for Sunday 29 July 2012


Very good looking race card at Del Mar this afternoon.  Sure hope I'm right in my assessment. Best of luck as always!

race 1    average clarity

7  Kentucky Kid    last two drills are very strong for a low level 2 year old mdn claimer 1ster.......and Mullins id hot

5  Papa G. T.   clunker (and then some) in last......1st two lifetime are strong given today's level of racing

3  Great Friends Rule   bad trip in debut.........strong drill since.....and takes that ever significant drop out of maiden claiming

8  Trice Up    weak trainer with 1st timers......decent trainer with 2nd so drills before debut race......good drills since.....ya think we might see more today?


race 2    slightly above average clarity

2  Yer Woman   SCRATCHED      best on AW at 6F.....GG invader is able to get the hot services of Garrett Gomez who in my opinion is the best jockey in the U S of A when he is feeling good

5  Church Avenue   consistent Ellis mare is a better horse on the AW...... and...... faces easier today

3  Melissa Rose   claimed for 25K and yet to win at higher levels.....back to 25K.......very meant and dangerous

8  Folk Dancer   best on AW surfaces and best at 6 furlongs.....potential to fire very best racing turf to AW this afternoon


race 3   slightly above average clarity

5  Travesura   exits a fast heat where being beat by 8 isn't that was his debut and 27 to 1 says he wasn't all that meant from the Mullins barn.....tighter and better this afternoon

1  Rhodium   solid works for this Miller 1st timer and he has been firing on all cylinders with his babies this summer

4  Sheaparoux    good work series for this Mitchell 1st timer who sold for quite a bit of money considering his that suggests he sure looked outstanding in March when he was purchased

7  Truly Marie   another debuting filly from a solid outfit and training up to snuff for her introduction into the wonderful world of thoroughbred racing


race 4    average clarity

3  Imponente Purse   love when a barn steadily drops a horse and the horse finally wakes up and then the barn starts moving the runner up the class ladder....that is the case here....and trainer is fairly hot....and the runner is proven in marathon distances

1  Lumberjack Jack   last looks like a needed race to muscle up and be at full throttle 2nd out after the layoff.....lifetime best is at 1 1/2 miles so 1 3/8's should be a nice fit

6  Lime Rickey    faces weaker out of town but sure love marathon races

7  The Unusual One    short on figs but appreciates the front end and can get it here....bred fine to handle the distance

Possible Long-shot:    5  Soul Candy   careful...... never lower and owns big back numbers in it might be gimme-gimme- drop and go go go go


race 5    average clarity

5  Man Chester Man   just claimed and man oh man are the works vastly improved....and the trainer wins at a 40% clip 1st out after the claim

4  Bench The Judge   invader has been facing better and his trainer wins his fair share....also he is proven at Dmr

9  Coluda    wants the front end and is likely to get slow things down or I doubt he will sustain and get the 1 1/8th

2  Maker   solid history on the AW...,..still will need his very best to score here

Possible Long-shot:   8  Warren's Kong   seemingly runs all day long and gets the 5 lbs off with app. Fores up......might come roaring home late


race 6    average clarity

3  High Test   really took to the AW at Hollywood.......and just popped a bullet work on the AW at Del Mar.........closer seemingly gets ample pace up front to flatter his late run

4  Jimmy Creed    2 strong fast wire attempts in 2 lifetime races.......won't get loose easily here but he might run from off off it especially with Gomez up

6  Doyouseemecoming    might be feeling awfully good coming off of 2 grass races as grass is often kinder on a horse's body

10  Clinton   solid in 3 career sprints 5 1/2 to 6 furlongs.......very impressive work series for this Armstrong runner....and Armstrong is quite reliable when she shows good drills


race 7    average clarity

2  Thisismystage   very consistent sort......wide trip and checked in the stretch and only was beat by 2 1/2 in last.....8 post that day......2 post today......can get the trip and score

1  Jet Blue Girl    seems like a good claim by O'Neill..........mare is on the right end of the learning curve and now gets the services of Gomez

3  Jealous Woman   wide trip in last hides a strong run........last two wins came when in for a $62,500 claiming tag......up for same tag today

5  Chasin Perfection   Ellis takes over the training duties for this filly that just keeps getting better........and better.......and better.....and.........

Possible Long-shot:   8  True Way Of Grace    not impossible awfully well and owns back numbers that fit


race 8    slightly above average clarity

1  Amazombie   be at best in 6 furlong affairs like today.......Smith knows this B C Cup sprint winner inside out

4  The Factor    ultra tough speed horse will most likely be able to shake off any early challenge from no. 2 and be very tough to catch

5  Capital Account   3 for 3 on AW and one of those winning races was at ever which fits fine here was 2nd out after a layoff....2nd out after a layoff today


race 9    average clarity

10  Tornado Alice   very solid pace and final time in a cheap mdn claimer in great since......... with Avila putting some endurance into the horse.......tough post but solid early speed and an excellent gate jockey.........wire to wire shot again today

8  Raucious Lady   horrid trip in last or would have won sprint turf race easily....1st long but bred just fine to get the mile on the grass

7  Little Emily   another with a weak trip in last.......sure like the switch to the apprentice and his weight break here

2  Budidinha   Crc invader seemingly fits fine versus these but she needs to overcome her tendency to hang in the stretch


race 10    slightly above average clarity

8  Pink Blanket    incredible early speed for this layoff runner who can still win even at 75% of what she like she is very meant and ready

1  Pennies From Denny    broke poorly in MSW debut and only got beat by 5 3/4 lengths.....drops to the bottom......alarming?......not too much for yours truly as the horse only cost $1,000 at sale in Jan 2012

10  Paris Grapes   Spawr 1st timer has a prolonged work regiment that sure suggests that she is very fit for her maiden debut

6  She Can Roar   ran well as a 1st timer last year so she is somewhat proven fresh....and she sure is training as if she is "all systems go" for her return to the race wars

4  Nana Beach

5  Lucky Monique
