Del Mar for Sunday 4 August 2013


Another nice card today at beautiful Del Mar.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    above average clarity

1  Blues and Silvers   conditions of this seldom run race fit this Puype runner to a T......a ton here if she fires anyone of her last three races run at CD

7  Selleria   par (for the given level of this race) ability for this filly trained by Mark Glatt but she best move forward today or hope the top pick has an off day to get to the circle of joy here

4  Brazen All Star   improving sort for Puype who tries the sod for the 1st time.....bred well to handle it and she best handle it in a big way today

6  Lil Barbie Doodle


race 2    slightly above average clarity

5  Awesome Baby   fabulous works for a 2 year old filly in early August......and Baffert is the trainer.......enough said

2  Perched   off pace runner improved nicely in 2nd lifetime start......connections will have their fingers crossed that the speedsters will battle hard up front

6  Amaranth  GG trainer upset the apple cart as our 3rd choice on Friday and scored at the tune of $ he has a well bred filly who is training awfully well at GG and Dmr.....rather sure ready to roll

4  Tacit Approval


race 3    slightly above average clarity

5  Midnite View    wide trip in last.......did well to only get beat by 6L as it was a very fast heat.....trainer is off to a good start at the new meeting..........colt is bred just fine to get a mile

2  Wicked Finance   major move forward in 2nd lifetime start and it was his 1st going a route of ground.........trained sharply since including a work at Dmr......doubt the new surface is a hindrance

7  Smokin Bernie    solid forward move in latest.....and might have the best early speed in the race.........stout combo year in and year out of Baffert/Gracia to get the job accomplished

3  Crucero


race 4    average clarity

4  The Only Key   the only key I can see is that this mare responds to ample time between races.......just claimed by Hollendorfer and he smartly gives it to her.....rebound city today likely

7  Meltarib    3 for 6 at today's turf distance.........0 for 6 at other turf distances.........last two races running off of short rest were moves forward.....short rest today

6  Camryn Kate   likely to go after the lead here with the red hot grass rider up in the ageless G Stevens.....danger city

5  Toomanytomatoes


race 5    slightly below average clarity

10  Pray Hard   very tightly spaced work series towards the end of this 1st timers work regiment especially for a 2 year old........finished with 3 gate drills and the last was a bullet work.....tough post but rather sure ready and a good one

3  Charisma Code   fell off some in 2nd lifetime start......need a rebound to his MSW debut effort and maybe a little more

7  California Jade   Hess is a difficult trainer to tell when he has a 1st timer ready to roll as he as he shows little in the a.m. usually......but Bejarano is up and he has won 3 of his last 5 mounts riding for the conditioner

5  Where's The Heat


race 6    slightly below average clarity

1  Mia Lady   Simon Callaghan MSW runner just keeps getting better........and better.........and better.........and

6  Always A Chance   McCarthy filly runs well fresh and man did he just work an eye popping 5F.......believe very ready and if she is she is formidable here

2  Power of Truth   consistent sort up vastly better of late seemingly out of nowhere.......seems poised for a top effort if he handles the Poly

4  Tribal Spy


race 7    average clarity

7  Biorhythm   solid 1st ever on the sod in last......2 for 2 lifetime when loose on the lead........all cranked up with a 46 Flat drill since her encouraging last.....full throttle today to try and wire in her 1st ever at a route and she sure is bred to handle one

6  Miss Pippa   quality grass cutter is likely to get a nice stalk position behind our top selection and try to overtake her on the turn or stretch

3  Freedom Rings   good history at today's 1 mile turf distance (4 2 1 0) and everything that Leparoux rides for Drysdale seems to be live to some degree

10  Perfecta


race 8    average clarity

2  Ontology  solid improve in 2nd lifetime start and continues to work as if another move in the right direction is likely to occur today

6  Guns Loaded   big MSW debut win in last both in final time and pace.......might be able to shake free early as no one in the field has shown his kind of early speed to date

5  Alberts Hope   slightly best fig in the race......fits fine if he runs similar at an extra 1 1/2 furlongs

3  Skydreamin


race  9    average clarity

3  Cloud Hopper   dislikes dirt.....toss out last......don't even look at it......loves the AW......lets hope that includes the AW at Dmr.........most who handle the AW at GG like the Dmr AW

5  Moment of Weakness   big work.....big drop......Belvoir means business here

6  Keyboard Courage   Miller charge is 2 for 2 in claiming races and 0 for 5 in non-claiming affairs....claiming race here

2  Royal Import

1  Bay Rush

4  Bluegrass Reward
