Del Mar for Wednesday 1 August 2012

[private]

Decent card today to start out week number three at Del Mar. 

Good luck as always!

 

race 1    average clarity

2  All On The Table    improving with every grass start and now we get a jock switch to the meets leading rider in Garrett Gomez.......good chance to get a nice ground saving stalk position

6  Magic School   sure appreciates the Dmr abbreviated sprint turf races.......and her trainer is off to a hot start.......late runner seemingly gets ample pace in here to put in a strong late run

1  Blackie's Crown   ships in from LS off a strong turf win and the race was run at today's 5F distance........very solid 4F drill on the AW at Dmr suggests the filly is still sharp......should be in the hunt from the get go

3  Cosset   laid up since March and steps way up 1st off of the claim but the works are extremely strong hinting Palma has the trump card for this mare who was quite good last summer under Bill Mott......major league rebound is a possibility

 

race 2    average clarity

6  Unusual Darling   exits a key race where 2nd and 3rd came back to win their next out........and it was this fillies 1st ever at a route.....same or better likely today off of a very nice work tab for a hot trainer in Mullins

5  Itsphun   good sprint effort in latest her 1st run ever on the synthetic........bred to run all day so 2 turns should be a good fit........blinkers on and Maldonado stays aboard.....likely to sit much closer today

4  Lady Shazzam     taking that ever dangerous drop out of MSW racing to the bottom maiden claiming level.........Bajarano/Sadler have won their last five out 0f ten as a team

7  Zambra Mora   12 to 1 in a 6 horse field suggests that debut race was greatly needed and more can be expected today

 

race 3    average clarity

3  Siempre Mio   very strong sprint efforts including most recent two with Scott up......Bejarano today.....that'll do 

6  Star Nicholas   not the best of trips in last and didn't receive much pace to close into.....seemingly gets ample pace here to flatter his late kick

4  Ranchero   diminishing ability but a highly competitive sort.....probably has a few more decent races left in him......doubt very many more

2  Afleet Deal   2 of his last 3 races are par like efforts for today's level ..........claim back by Grayson who went win-less in 6 races when he had this runner before.......but.........he seemed to be improving this  gelding right before losing him at the claiming box

 

race 4    slightly above average clarity

5  You're Joking   exits a fast heat where he was caught wide close to a solid pace.......solid works since........and drops........good sign Bejarano sticks around........if he hadn't I would be quite concerned about this runners health

10  A. P. Corsair   major move forward in his latest 1st time with the blinkers on......same with a good trip (somewhat wide in last) and he should be tough

12  Contributed   only 4 drills showing for this O'Neill 1ster but the last drill is strong especially considering the level of racing........dangerous

7  Solana Soleil   probably needed his layoff last the 1st out under the care of Peter Eurton.......likely to move forward and needs to quite a bit

 

race 5    average clarity

1  Strong Wind   very impressive 2 races back......definitely the one to beat if tis baby rebounds to that effort......as good of early foot as anyone in the field

4  Weewinnin   romped in his maiden debut in a fast heat of maiden claimers at GG.........a new trainer after a stellar debut is usually a good sign the horse feels good.....that is the case today

5  Law Dog   invader has improved in each lifetime start.......and draws Garrett Gomez........bit concerned about showing only one dull drill since his last run 4 weeks ago........or would have rated higher

 

race 6    slightly above average clarity

8  Iron Joe T   nice somewhat hidden move forward in last.........wide close to the pace..........stout trainer rider combo in Maldonado and Bonde......should be in hunt from the get go and that is usually a good thing with Maldonado up

3  Panettone   big rebound in form in latest.........1st time with the blinkers........and now drops a level.........seems solid here

6  Sweet Elation   wide trip in latest or would have won his last which was run at this level.........better trip fits just fine........jock could use a good trip and a win

9  Rocksprings Texas   Hollendorfer is very dangerous with laid up first time in claiming dropping horses.......and Bejarano accepts the mount.....very dangerous

 

race 7    slightly below average clarity

1  Classic Bobby    not only 1 for 1 on the Dmr AW but it was his best race ever.........also seems to be the speed of the speed here and Peter Miller sure is good with early speed types

3  Adriatic Moon   decent par like effort in last and claimed by Glatt........late runner seemingly receives plenty of heat up front to aid his running style.......Glatt is off to a cold start at the Dmr meet but he is rather good 1st out after a claim

5  Daylight Magic   done litle wrong in 4 lifetime races ........trainer is still looking for 1st 2012 alw win.........maybe with Gomez aboard he can finally get one

4  Mandated Bliss   best works in awhile for this Mitchell charge.......and Bejarano might have gotten off of the 5 to ride this gelding......if so this runner is most likely feeling good

Long-shot Possibilities:   8  Armenian Star  might have greatly benefited from his 1st run in over 10 months because his trainer steps him up a couple of levels.........2 reassuring drills since last.....and........sure seems to like the Dmr synthetic.....better pace and final time on it's surface

 

race 8    average clarity

13  Not Kidding Around     lost irons at the start costing this runner 4 or 5 lengths.....and he lost another couple of lengths running a touch wide.......Bejarano will be out to make amends

8  Salty Forecast    not the cleanest of journeys in mc debut last.........good chance Talamo and this learning horse can get it right today in 2nd lifetime endeavor.....very tough here if that occurs

3  Rich In Tradition   not much in last but debut was good and it is hidden by a bad trip-a-roo...........sharp bullet (and only) drill at Dmr hints this filly likes the surface......rebound seems likely........new jock toaday

5  We Be Good   tightly spaced works (some of which are quite good) strongly suggests this Hollendorfer 1st timer is tightly wound and ready to roll 1st out of the box

7  Onyx Be Good

10  Zoe B
