Del Mar for Wednesday 7 August 2013


For the remainder of the week you will be in the very capable hands of my assistant David Gordon as yours truly gets a break with a little family RR. He did very well subbing last year as many of you might recall. I will be back at the helm on August 14th.

Average looking card this afternoon.

Best of luck as always!


race 1  slightly above average clarity

1  Et Tu Walker   has been sprinting on the grass outstandingly and seemingly versus better

2  Summer Exclusive   solid grass race 2 back at Hollywood......quick 4F drill with the dogs up 6 days ago.....set for a rebound

4  Depreciable   off for over 17 months but this Mullins runner has been in training for an extended period of time.......1 for 1 sprinting on the lawn.....sure seems fit and ready


race 2    average clarity

2  Sudden Rumor   prolonged tightly spaced works series suggests this 1st timer is meant and ready for D'Amato.....hint of speed in his a.m. is a plus

7  Go First   clunker in last.....MSW debut 2 back is strong......recent drills and switch to Gomez.....rebound city

4  Sir Barclay   mom has tossed 3 winner from 3 aren't too bad......Belvoir 1ster might be ready and ready with some ability

3  Smogcutter


race 3    average clarity

6  Spring Breeze    invader ran a big effort 2 back at Tampa........very impressive 2nd best of 82 that worked at 5F on 28 July.........hello Polytrack

7  Addendum   last is better than appears in print....wide on an inside track......significant rider upgrade

2  Ghost N Your Heart   last 2 of 3 races fit fine here.......but she might need more pace than anticipated in this affair.....and that occurs quite often in S Cal

3  Queen of the Hill


race 4    average clarity

1  Clenor   O'Neill import from Ireland has the most turf credentials here and looks tough if she is meant and ready in her 1st start in the good old U s of A

2  Exoctic Behavior   nice prep......has some early speed that isn't so evident......and sure is bred to handle the 1 mile on the grass......

3  Sierra Electra   showed enough in her 5F turf debut that if she can handle the tall task of getting 1 mile in early August at 2 then she can contend for the top prize

4  Amy Jane


race 5    below average clarity

1  Lovely Instinct   Palma is poor with 1st timers and is very good with 2nd starters.......and the drills since her debut are improved and they are at Dmr......most likely plenty more from this filly today

3  Tribal Tattoo   flashed strong early speed in mc debut and then spit the bit......might need a loose lead to get brave and run......and she seems as likely as anyone to get the front end

5  Wickedly Sassy   trained decently prior to debut and was bet hard at the windows....tossed a clunker.......deserves another chance as she is after all only a baby

8  Pining Play


race 6    average clarity

9  Minds Eye   layoff last on the sod was very impressive.........1 for 1 on the Dmr AW.....big recent drill.........feeling really good......race seems to set for her closing style

6  Conkate   strong race 2 back turf to AW.......same scenario here......and plenty of pace in here can flatter her late kick

2  Ismene   might be speed of the speed is speed doing so far this afternoon?

3  Charm the Maker


race 7    average clarity

5  Stop Smiling   impressive debut MSW win......full of run.......hasn't missed a beat since.......feeling good.......Hollendorfer is hot

2  Concave   solid MSW debut 5F grass win by 3 1/2L......nice endurance building 6F work since for today's 6 1/2 furlong affair

4  She's A Tiger   can really fly early but so can the 1 horse.....needs to avoid a suicide speed duel one way or another


race 8    slightly below average clarity

2  Gypsy Friday   big move forward on the sod in last and it is hidden by a bad trip.......1st ever with a top echelon jock up.......solid here if displays same energy in her 1st endeavor on the Dmr AW

5  Lakeside Bride   better on the AW......and better with blinkers on......gets both in the a.m.

8  Suances Pride   blinkers on and the drills on the Dmr surface sure suggest she loves the surface/and/or the blinkers added

4  That's A Bingo

11  Warren's Dixie Bell

10  Sri's Red
