Del Mar for Thursday 18 July 2013


Average card this afternoon for day number 2 at beautiful Del Mar. Wish I was there.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

1  Bares Tripper    wild speed produced in last with 1st time blinkers.....intelligent 6F work put in since by Peter Miller to improve her endurance.....cut back in distance seems like a plus......gate to wire play

4  Madeoffwiththemoney   lifetime best was lone race run on the grass at Dmr at 5F.......solid N Cal trainer ships in seemingly with a sharp individual

6  Tiz Molly   done little wrong in 2 lifetime starts winning both exceptionally well during her 7 week break in the action.....should be in the hunt for the circle of joy if she takes to the green carpet in her 1st ever on it


race 2    average clarity

1  She's All Yours   7 wins and 4 2nd's in 13 races at the distance.....yikes......looks like she can be loose here.......and the drop makes sense as she was only claimed for 12.5K 4 races back

2  Ebony N Ice    poor trip $8K affair hides an OK effort in layoff last....claimed in the race by Jeff Bonde and the works sine suggest a strong effort can occur 2nd out after the the layoff running back at $8K

8  Halfapondarosa    claim back by Peter Eurton who has done quite well with this mare in the past......last run was solid......better than par......and this mare has a good history at Del Mar

4  Mary Contrary


race 3    average clarity

4  Real Bright Boots   lone race way back in Sept of last year is much better than appears in print.....way too wide and near the pace......laid up since but sure is training as though she is meant and ready fresh off of the bench......and draws last year's top gun at Dmr in Bejarano

7  Pipedreaming   bad trip-a-roo in mc debut.....broke slow and ran wide....did well to only get beat by 10L in a fairly fast heat for the level.....and the trainer is much better with 2nd timer starters

5  Frannie'sspirittoo   very dangerous here if this filly breaks cleanly which seems like a 50/50 proposition here......6 1/2 furlongs seems like a good fit

11  Little Unusual


race 4    average clarity

4  J And S Express    impressive improvement in last and claimed by Doug O'Neill in the race......same effort today likely would makes her the one to beat.....more would be icing on the cake......Dmr Poly is a ? mark somewhat

1  Joyce And Me   3 for 6 at the distance.......0 for 8 at other distances........just claimed by Cody Autrey who popped in the the 10th yesterday with a recent claim......draws Bejarano who chose the 13 horse over Autrey's winning 12 horse in yesterday's 10th only to run 2nd to him

3  Quinnette   solid move forward in last 1st out for Kruljac.....very dangerous here if the filly makes a logical step forward 2nd out after the layoff

8  Addendum


race 5    average clarity

6  Belle De Lune   runs best with Stevens who looks tremendous riding on the grass the way he settles a horse......race 3 back is very solid......only listed mount of the day for Gary......."live horse" / great turf rider....that'll do

2  Zia Zia Zia   big early speed and a 5F turf race......likely to be in the hunt at the wire for the win

7  Vionnet   very tightly spaced work series hints Richard Mandella wants this quality grass cutter to be ready fresh off of the extended hiatus from the track......sure fits if she is

4  Sweet And Lowdown


race 6    slightly below average clarity

1  Foogard   good mc debut without the blinkers 2 back at GG.....bombed out in 2nd start with the blinkers today.....improved recent drill......Bejarano up and he has been getting live mounts from Hess of late

4  Chatter Up   good looking work regiment for this Mike Pupye 1st timer........Puype has historically been so so with 1sters but not of late

3  Slewpy Again   2 useful MSW races under his belt and now drops into maiden claimer.....low percentage trainer but when he drops from MSW to mc......and a slight rider upgrade

5  Stormin


race 7    slightly above average clarity

6  Gypsy Robin   3 for 3 at Kee and all 3 wins were very impressive.....that bodes well for her chances of taking to the Dmr surface as they are both are essentially the same synthetic since Oct but hard to train any better

4  Reneesgotzip   1 for 1 at Dmr and has yet to lose in 4 races on the AW......filly has the ability to duel eyeball to eyeball and still be stout in late stretch.....few can

1  Executiveprivilage   3 year old has to face some brilliant 4 year olds but her only loss without blinkers in 6 starts came to the 2 year filly champ - Beholder

3  Curvy Cat


race 8    average clarity

7  So Elite   wide trip hides a solid wake-up in last.....and today we get a significant rider upgrade especially when it comes to turf riding

9  Te Rapa    another that ran awfully well despite a wide trip........needs a more of a clever of a trip today from not the easiest of posts

8  Tamarack Smarty   seems to appreciate the Del Mar grass course over all others......likely to move forward today with her 1st run on it since the summer of 2011

10  Fear The Beard

2  Romeo Royale

3  Black N Beauty
