Del Mar for Friday 24 July 2012

[private]

Don't forget about signing up for Saratoga's Travers Day full card selections. 13 races in all and 8 or more entries in every race. Not one claiming race. All 4 Graded races have "average clarity" or better.

 

race 1    average clarity

1  Hidden Blessing   very competitive horse from start to finish when running at 6 furlongs or less........and best ever is the only time this runner ran at today's 5 1/2 furlong distance and it is quite hidden by a bad trip: wide close to a hot pace

2  Hombre Hughes   1st on the AW but handles the sod....... so......... as often is the case a runner that handles turf will usually handle the synthetic.........owns some solid races at Ded and Evd whose quality is on the rise given a strong purse structure

9  Gibson Home Run   lead type only is back in the Miller barn and he puts the blinkers on to enhance his chances of snatching the front end and going gate to wire

7  Imperial Pride   wide trip in last amounted to a nice forward move .......appears to appreciate the Dmr surface and you would think Hess would have him all set for today's race because that is probably it as far as getting to race at Dmr until of course next year

 

race 2    average clarity

8  Sexyuknowit   trainer Cash Asmussen loves to fire with 2nd time starters..........so drop out of MSW racing for 2nd lifetime start sure seems very significant here

4  Duke Street KIng   decent mc debut at a notch higher........new higher % trainer and a jock upgrade......and a small drop for 2nd lifetime start......same or more today seems likely

6  Kentucky Kid   good mc debut and two recurring drills since......another competitor likely to move in the right direction in his 2nd lifetime endeavor

3  Jones Destiny    so so debut last was with C Asmussen at LS and Asmussen often is much better with 2nd timers.......shows up in the Papaprodromou barn and he is quite good with 2nd timers as well.........hmmmmmm

 

race 3    slightly below average clarity

3  Consulado   competitive in all 5 lifetime starts......laid up since April but working up to snuff..........first on the sod but bred exceptionally well to handle it

1  Sweet Swap   off since October of 2011 but big 6F drill just 6 days ago screams ready.......1st on the sod but bred to handle it......showed good early foot in both lifetime races.....good thing in a race off only 5F

4  Brutally Handsome    good chance this fellow needed his latest.........needs race 2 back a 5F turf affair at Dmr which was in late August of 2011

7  Grumpy Small Mouth   nice move forward in last.....and what a fit with Gomez.....(4 2 2 0).....that'll do

 

race 4    slightly below average clarity

6  Mirror Ball   only two lifetime races in 2 years but hasn't missed a beat in the morning since mid June............logically drops out of MSW racing to score as it might be awhile until this seemingly delicate horse can race again

8  Hanserella   seemingly running into shape......last fits.....very formidable with one more move in the right direction

5  Wrinkle Room   only lifetime race on the synthetic (and it was the Dmr synthetic) fits solidly and it is somewhat hidden a bad trip-a-roo

4  Kvetch    3 3rd's in 4 lifetime races.........trainer Chew has to get this one over her tendency to flatten out close to the wire

 

race 5    slightly above average clarity

4   Morning Fog   lost about 9 lengths (very bad start and somewhat wide) and only got beat by 2 3/4 in route turf MSW debut in 2011........next lifetime race was 4 weeks ago at SR and in the race he broke 3 slow and showed a strong turn move to win easily in a 6F mc25k affair....work tab since is solid......should love another 1/2 furlong....trainer is 1 for 1 at the meet and we also liked that runner in our publication

2  Hammer The Bay   good spot for speed but blinkers off........still might get loose and might be able to set a slow pace up front for 1st time Miller after the claim

8  Willie Brown   on the improve and the recent drills strongly suggest another forward move is likely to occur.....not impossible at a price like last time

6  Smokey Legacy   done little wrong in 2 lifetime races.....still might need a touch more today to take this.......the meets leading jock remains up to get a little more out of this 1 win and 1 2nd in 2 lifetime starts gelding

 

race 6    average clarity

3  Left A Message   training great..........conditioner is red hot especially with his turf runners......and we get a very significant rider upgrade.....runs as if she will stay all day long so the 1 3/8 ought to be right up her alley

4  Let's Go Cheyenne    lone speed here and this filly is very ratable.......Talamo can slow them down on the lead with the best of them so.........this filly might.................go..............all...............the...............way

1  Thisismystage   decent chance to get a very nice ground saving chase position......marathon distance fits

2  Quantity   gets what he wants......a marathon grass race.....and gets a major jockey upgrade

 

race 7    slightly below average clarity

8  It's Aine   finally drops out of MSW racing after 5 lifetime races.........last effort fits OK mostly because this field is so weak.......run 2 back would make this filly tough to overcome.....recent drill hints we can see that race 2 back

10  Qarren's Sugarbuzz   solid forward move  in last and now the a.m. work appears better........likely to move forward again and she should fit at this level if she does

9  Only Josie Knows   badly needed debut..........probably needed 2nd start.......has run into shape as opposed to work into shape......now drops into maiden claiming from MSW......that signals go go go today

4  Tribal Custom   Jones 1st starter might be ready to roll.....hints he might have some early foot.........good speed rider aboard

1  Muna Jewels

2  Italian Harmony
