Del Mar for Sunday 28 July 2013


Card seems OK today with quite a few top choices that should go off at a hefty price. Be back with you Wednesday to start week number 3 of the prestigious Del Mar Meeting

Best of luck as always!


race 1    slightly below average clarity

3  Be Proud   sharp work series for this Baffert 1ster.......believe the world class trainer waited for one of the first 6F races for two year olds with this filly because she is bred for endurance......and at this time of year 6F is taxing on many a 2 year old

4  Tiz The Key    Mandella is off to a very good start at the Dmr meeting (albeit with limited starters) and he appears to have this 1st timer meant and ready to roll

1  Secret Compose   good MSW debut for this Baffert two year old filly who ran well from off of the pace......and blinkers to hopefully get her in the game earlier


race 2    average clarity

2  Humorous    GG invader is well placed to win and has that all important commodity these early days at Dmr and that is tactical early speed

3  Laugh At Life     good tactical  early speed as well for this just claimed O'Neill colt who drops a notch after the claim......and O'Neill historically is quite good which such a has a strong record when running for a tag (4 2 2 0)

1  Too Fast To Pass   seems best just off the pace  and if finds himself in that position he has a chance to get a ground saving trip and make his move late on the turn or stretch behind what looks like it should be a lively pace up front

4  Tizaplayer


race 3    slightly above average clarity

5  Coconut Cream Pie    scratched out of a race a couple of days ago and it appears to be a good thing because this filly is capable of a par like effort and par looks awfully good versus a soft looking group

4  Keldy   not much fig wise but exits a very key field of grass sprinters......appears to own the best early speed in here and might get away in her 1st ever at a route

7  Rosies Rascal    1st on the lawn and 1st at a route but bred fine to handle both......1st out after the claim and her new trainer Dan Black sees fit to take the blinks off.........and the recent works are improved hinting the equipment change is a good move

8  Tiz Zoe Cee


race 4    slightly below average clarity

4  Scherer Magic    drops and is training markedly better.......Sadler is heating up and I believe he has this gelding meant and ready for 50K claiming which is the price he claimed this runner for in June of 2012

2  No Contingency   big run to win mdn 75K since mid May but training like the break has done him a world of good......fresh runner seems ready for best as he was in his mc debut

3  He's Not Too Shabby   poor turf in latest.....big turf race 2 back at 50K........good effort at Dmr on the AW last year......very good works at Dmr this year......rebound city here

5  I Don't Care Who


race 5    slightly below average clarity

6  Whipstock   race lacks early speed and this 6 year old might own the most.......and low % (in general) rider is rather good with a speed horse....can rate if need obvious plus

9  Arraignment   obviously not the best of claims by Sadler but got a needed break.....can recover enough to compete at today's significantly lower level

8  Perfect Verve   consistent sort ships in seemingly in good form and he sure looks like the added 1/16th of a mile today will be to his liking

7  Scofield Barracks


race 6    slightly above average clarity

10  Ranulf   horrid trip in MSW debut and did extremely well to only get beat by 1 1/4L.......settled down in 2nd lifetime start and ran a very nice effort/fig with very strong pace.....continues to train like a happy healthy runner

2  Gnarley Dude   seems like a smart claim by Sadler as this steadily improving runner is firing effort/figs that fit well at the nw alw level.......and he is training as if Sadler might have improved him some

8  Marchman   invading trainer has placed everything (0 for 4 on the board) over their head but not this stout CD runner.......owns good early speed.....and ran well on the Poly at preparatory works at CD

6  Heir Of Storm


race 7    slightly above average clarity

2  Scooter Bird     blocked in last or would have won her MSW by 2 or 3 instead of a nose.......but more importantly the works since strongly suggest best ever will be this afternoon.....good post........good rider........good trainer

6  Smooth Talker    on the improve with every start.....and the horse that she beat by 4L in MSW win in her latest just graduated yesterday as our 2nd choice.....should be in the race from the get go

7  Blingismything   good forward move in 2nd lifetime start.....and today we get a rider upgrade to the top gun at the meet so far in Bejarano

4  Bonnie Lesley

Long-shot possibilities:   5  Sassy Badger   dangerous trainer 1st on the lawn........showed she can run a route of ground in her debut on the dirt at LS......Texas bred has obscure breeding but it ought to be good for the sod.....big big bullet 5/8th's drill 11 days ago....not impossible at a very big price


race 8    average clarity

2  Goldencents    one of the Ky Derby favorites went off form at the worst of like he is 100% recovered and fully ready to compete fresh off of the bench......won MSW debut in only lifetime sprint race and it was at Dmr

4  Comma To The Top   consistent speed-ball is seemingly best at today's 6F distance......and has handled Dmr in the past

6  Points Offthebench   gets moving up in class and handling things well......up quite a bit today but deserves this chance and one thing for sure he has been a very competitive sort


race 9    slightly below average clarity 

2  Youtheprizeandi   9 race career........3 best were the 3 times this invader ran fresh.......fresh today and drops......should be a price

4  One Magical Girl   Spawr is very dangerous 3rd out after layoffs and that is the case here.......last effort run at Dmr which was in 2011 was a solid 3L win.......drops a notch to help score

6  Tiz The Route   last two layoff races are strong and both are hidden by by bad since mid Feb here  and working as if she is meant and ready fresh once more.....might just need a good trip to upset the apple cart

9  Pincelada


race 10    average clarity

3  Arctic North   exits a very fast heat of MSW runners.......solid MSW debut especially considering it was a route on the AW.......good drill since......ready for 1st ever on the grass which he is well bred for

1  Layton Register   trainer shipped in a Midwest runner to win a Stakes last week........and he has a strong late runner here from CD that should be flying late

6  Horizontalyspeakin    last was solid just set too solid of a off today to slow this gelding down some in the early stages.....seems like a sharp move by Saddler

7  Corinthian's Song

9  Mi Hijo

5  Grant
