[private]

 Take note that we will be offering a special day of full card (usually 13 races and usually the best race card in the U S of A outside of the Breeders Cup) selections on Travers day at Saratoga on 25 August. Sign up is now available. Early bird sign-up will save you a couple of dollars as it has in the past. Selections will be sent in your email the night before Travers day.

 

race 1    average clarity

2  Not Kidding Around   bad trips in last 2 races hides a horse in good form.....gets 7 lbs off for today.......should be solid with a decent trip

4  Quizzical    nice 2nd place finish in last with a big gap to 3rd....capable of solid early pace....a big deal in an abbreviated sprint race

5  Missdang Sally   wide with pace in last hides a solid layoff run....same effort with a better trip and he has a solid shot........new jock for today

6  Rich In Tradition   sure woke up 1st time Dmr in last....only needs a small forward move to be in the hunt here

 

race 2    average clarity

7  Field Report   very solid efforts last year at 3..........training like the same can occur now off of the layoff at 4.......and drops......might be very tough if he is right

2  Anabaa Premium   chased a strong pace at a route and didn't fade too badly late....cut back to a sprint should be a good fit now that he has learned to chase

1  Qatar's Pearl    looks like a sharp move for Troy Taylor to sprint this horse in last.....could have won at this level if it wasn't for a 4 wide trip

8  Axle    last wasn't too bad....debut 2 back was better....recent sharp drill suggest he can rebound to it.....can be in the hunt if he does and gets a good trip 

 

race 3    average clarity

1  Clubhouse Rules    seems to greatly prefer the grass....both efforts sprinting down the SA hill fit well here.......very impressive 5F work just 6 days ago

6  Malibu Knight   clunker in last........monster of a wake run 2 back.....blinkers off today to help find that significant effort.....Bejarano sticks around

7  Red Jag   runs well fresh and runs well at 5 furlongs on the sod.....Crc invader is training well for Mulhall and seemingly has a shot

2  Truest Legend   best races ever are his last two with the blinkers on.......finally 7 races later they are back on.....training 101

 

race 4    average clarity

6  Attack The Jack   claimed for 20K....out of jail so logically drops to 16K.......new trainer Mullins wisely leaves Maldonado up.....good chance to go wire to wire once again here to make it 4 straight wins

8  Warren's Morgan   last sure looks like a gimme to dirty up the form some and drop and go go go here

2  Never Shea Never   solid layoff win in last........only needs a small logical move forward to be a significant player here

7  Lady Rochelle   speedster needs to chase or our top pick will most likely do him in......some shot if he does chase

 

race 5   slightly below average clarity

4  Wildcat Moon  good mc debut at one notch higher in claiming..... very sharp work since.....and drops from mdn80K to mdn 62.5K.....all systems go for a solid attempt at graduating

2  Resistant   exactly the same scenario as our top pick minus the strong drill.....instead we get 2 useful works to keep this runner on edge

5  Dancer Humor   good mdn 50K debut run at Crc on July 6th has been able to work 4 times over the Dmr AW.....all set for 1st S Cal run

3  No Rachmones   speed horse has been tiring in the late stages.....blinkers off seems like a good thing to slow this runner down in the early stages

 

race 6    slightly above average clarity

5  Customer Base   sure ran awfully strong 1st time on the Del Mar grass course in last......Proctor has been on a roll with his turf horses and has a good shot to keep things rolling with this grass cutter

4  Lady Ten   fell off in latest but I smell a rebound.......as in two solid endurance building 6F drills....fits fine if she bounces back to effort 2 back

2  Byrama   needs to find her efforts she popped last winter.....maybe blinkers off can shake things up and wake her up

6  Cozze Up Lady   3 decent turf races run in the Midwest..........shipper has some early gas which looks OK in this spot......1 mile seems like a good fit

 

race 7    average clarity

1  Nicole's Mark    exits a solid heat.......earned a strong adjusted for trouble Santucci fig.....1st long but bred to get the distance and gets a decent post to starts things from

7  Tiz Lovely   decent race against the boys in last......positive rider switch with the 7 lbs. off......shot to be dominate up front from the get go.....low weight and back against the girls can keep this filly in the hunt thru-out

8  Malibu Love   consistent sort just fired her best AW race ever.......fits fine but shows a tendency to hang in the stretch......that she will need to overcome

4  Unusual Darling    improving by leaps and bounds with every start........claimed by a low % trainer......can he can the improvement coming?......fits solidly if he can.....we shall see

9  Lady Shazzam

11  It's Candy Time
