Del Mar for Friday 2 August 2013



So so card today but both Saturday and Sunday look quite good.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

3  Unusual Don   steady good works for the level of racing for this 1st timer........and best drill is his only work over the Dmr Poly.......and......a good year with the babies for Peter Miller

6  The Mad Hungarian   1st timer for Hector Palma is showing endurance and speed in his a.m. work.......been in training for quite some time.......believe he is ready

7  Sailors Brother   decent mc debut at Sac......ships into Dmr and steps up a small notch........decent subtle 5F gate work at GG for today in hopes he doesn't break tardy as he did in his lone lifetime race

5  Mondai Mondai


race 2    average clarity

1  Warren's Judy   steps up here off a so so race for 8K........and I believe it is because this filly is training so very well in the morning and nw2 16K isn't that much tougher than 8K........and owns a back number at Dmr that would beat these

2  Cavalla   last 3 of 4 sprints are a fit in this lackluster spot.......Pender has done well with limited starters at the meet

5  Hello Stormy    solid effort/fig in last........only run at Dmr was just fine........would have rated higher if she finished up stronger in races past 5 1/2 furlongs

4  Brandon's Princess


race 3    average clarity

1  Proud Bok   hello Dmr AW.....just fired lifetime best on her 1st ever on it.......apprentice Sigala looks good on a horse so far and it showed on this filly in latest

9  Top Knot   in the past 7F followed by a route = a solid better than par race..........layoff last was at 7F......running long today...........hmmmm

8  Liar Liar Liar   last was decent and it was off of 3 month layoff.......good chance to move forward 2nd out after the echelon trainer could use a win

3  Tiz A Funtime

Long-shot Possibilities:   4  Music and Me   exits a fast heat where getting beat by 10L in mc debut sprint wasn't as bad as appears on the printed page........filly is bred to go long and Walsh is decent first time ever sending a given horse long


race 4    below average clarity

4  Halfapondarosa   very consistent sort on AW surfaces including the Poly at Dmr......just claimed by Pender and his stock seems to be firing and I like the switch from a low % jock to apprentice Orozco who rides well enough to be worth the weight break

6  Magic Mama   no chance to close in last as there was too soft of a pace up front.........ran her eyeballs out 2 races back as she dwelt about 15L and only got beat by5 1/4 at twice the tag

10  Mary Contrary   Mitchell filly moved forward in last running on the Dmr synthetic.......same with a clever ride gives her a decent shot at the circle of joy

7  Rasin' Cain

Long-shot possibilities:   9  Lady Rochelle     seems best on AW surfaces and yet ran well on the conventional dirt in latest at Sac.....steps up double the claiming tag but last 3 endeavors when on the AW fit fairly well here


race 5    average clarity

1  Street Car    might feel really good come off the easiest of wire wins where the pace was soft.......and 1 for 1 sprinting at Dmr........ a wire win as well

9  Gutshot Straight    wide trip on an inside day greatly compromised this gelding's chances in latest.....earned a solid adjusted for trouble bias fig.....previous 2 races fit well here as well

2  Magic Beam   claimed for the 3rd consecutive time......this time around by Mulhall.......gelding does his best running at Dmr and has a good history with Pedroza on his back

7  Diamond of Blue


race 6    average clarity

4  Market Qoute    failed miserable in tab strongly hints at a rebound........switch to Espinoza who has been teaming up with Shirreffs with solid success the last couple of months

1  Zanbo   highly competitive in all 5 lifetime turf route races.......filly has never trained better in preparation for a race......and look who is up for the 1st time......the meetings top gun to date far in Bejarano

7  Tiz a Classy Lass    strong forward move in 2nd lifetime start and it is somewhat disguised by a so so trip........graduate has a shot to be in the mix here if it is onward and upward in 3rd lifetime start

2  Noise of the Crowd


race 7    slightly below average clarity

1  Omega Star   done little wrong in all 3 lifetime sprint races..........closed well late in his two 6 1/2 races leading me to think 7F will be a perfect fit

2  Tiz A Minister   very strong efforts/figs in 4 of 6 last six races all route affairs.......will need some pace up front to put in his best late challenge......hard to tell how much we will see

3  U'narack   on the right end of the learning curve and might be able to shake free on the front end........but he is versatile and can chase if need be

7  Lucky Cotton


race 8    average clarity

8  Concorde West    trainer keeps placing his stock where they have a good chance to compete for the top prize.......quite different than in past years at Dmr

7  Hard Play   1st time running as a up to snuff off of the 7 week break in the action......and drops

3  Juan's Corazonsito   off since April but this invader had 2 solid works at Rui and one good looking drill at Dmr........trainer upset the apple cart yesterday with a big upset win.......races 2 and 3 back at Sun fit fine here

11  Dramatic Allan

6  Excessive Tequila

10  El Tovar
