Del Mar for Wednesday 28 August 2013


Still 7 more big days left at Del Mar in what his been a very successful meet for them and for us. Average card at best today.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

2  Stormin Lute    done little wrong in 2 lifetime starts......claimed by Miller in latest and he must like what he sees as he steps his new runner up quite a bit and gets Gomez to ride.....and they sure have been getting the job done this meeting when they team up

7  Topper's Ghost   rank early a bit and ran a little wide and still managed to break maiden at 1st asking.....claimed by Sadler in the race and the trainer has been on a roll snatching up maiden claiming 1st timers that have ability.......somebody has a keen eye in the a.m. and/or maybe a spy or two

5  Advisory   nothing special about the winning final time for this Mullin's three-year-old who broke his maiden in his 2nd lifetime start but the pace sure is.......high likelihood this fellow is loose here and if he slows things down and/or moves forward he will be tough

3  Brannaman


race 2    average clarity

7  Kristo   scratched out of Sunday's MSW affair to run here........expensive yearling purchase is training extremely well and showed in her last drill an appreciation for the Dmr surface.....rather sure meant and ready to roll

5  Roundupthelute   Baffert 1st timer trained so so at Bhp......but......his 2 works at Dmr are quite good and being that this most likely is his only chance till 2014 to take advantage of it's surface my guess is Baffert wants a lot out of him in his MSW debut today

4  Melatonin   another 1st timer with works that suggest he is well prepared for his debut into the wonderful world of thoroughbred sire has plenty to prove (but likely will be a least a good sire of speed) but mom has tossed 2 winners from 2 starters both who won preciously at 2

1  Quick and Silver


race 3    slightly below average clarity

2  Bev N Bud    on the upswing and his best surface is Del Mar's Polytrack........trainer is firing on all cylinders

8  Marine Fog   last fits......race 2 back is even better and it was the only time this gelding has ever competed at today's 6 1/2 furlong distance

3  Peacenik    takes another alarming drop........good spot if he has another race or two left in him before heading to the farm as he looks as though he he has about a 75% shot of getting what he wants......a loose lead

7  Private Bounty


race 4    average clarity

2  Distinctive Cougar   so so effort in lone race run way back in prior to that debut were nothing to write home the works are impressive especially his last and it was produced on the Dmr surface.......believe this fellow returns as a vastly better horse

3  Glitter of Silver   very solid work regiment for this Richard Baltas 1ster who just worked a solid 6F and it was just 4 days ago......feeling good and draws Gomez

9  Dreamofatticus   done little wrong in 3 lifetime sprints and his last might have been his best and it was his 1st ever on the main track and it  was at Del reassuring 3F bullet work since

6  Accomplish


race 5    slightly below average clarity

3  Magic Beam    3 for 6 on the Dmr Poly which includes a solid win in last.........1 for 21 on other from 25K (following a solid win) to 20K makes sense as this most likely is his last opportunity to run on it's synthetic surface till 2014

11  Gutshot Straight    Hendricks has won 2 of his last 3 dropping 1st out after a claim which is today's senario........bad trip hides a decent effort in last and the works since Hendricks claimed are quite good

9  Tiz Point    very solid effort on the AW at Dmr in a race run at two......laid up 3 months but training up to snuff and finally after 2 years he gets another shot at the Dmr synthetic.....seems dangerous in for lowest level ever

5  Bluejack Attack  

Long-shot consideration:   6  Bergman    last is much better than appears in print.......caught wide with pace.......drills since the race are vastly improved......better trip and a small move forward and "bombs away"


race 6    average clarity

10  Keep Movin'   vastly improved stepping on the turf for the first time ever in last.......same or better this afternoon makes him the one to overcome........needs a clever trip from not the best of posts 

3  Sizzlin' Joe   on the improve and his last race is hidden by a wide trip on a inside day........switches back to the sod where is seems equally as efficient........and his lone lifetime win came in his only race at today's 1 1/16th distance and it was run at Del Mar

2  Heat Streaker   good post and tactical speed should help this GG invader save some ground at least on turn one and enhance his chances.........layoff last up North might have been his best ever......and........he has shown that he can run off of relatively short rest which is the case this afternoon   

8  Hotradamus


race 7    slightly above average clarity

2  Sunday Rules   significant final time and cut some sizzling fractions in MSW winning debut........and today's Stakes race lacks speed especially for a two-year-old Stakes race.......yikes

3  Whatsallthedrama    broke slowly........blocked on the turn.......and......still crushed her competition in an impressive MSW debut.......most likely needs to break cleanly today to win versus winners and if she does she might get a nice stalk position

4  Moving Desert   on the right end of the learning and needs the trend to continue this afternoon.......just fired best work showing to date (one week ago) so her learning progression seems as if it can continue


race 8    average clarity

12  J K's Mischief   take a look at the 2 lifetime sprint races run on main track surfaces without blinkers and you will see two races that fit solidly in this spot

1  Huera Bonita   very game late running sort should have some pop late if Kayla Stra takes advantage of her inside draw and saves as mush ground as she can

9  Magic Number   just fired best ever in her 1st ever on the main track in a race run 40 days ago.......and another 1st for today as this is her 1st sprint race might be a good fit as she made a strong early move in a mile affair in her our 2nd pick she ought to be closing well in the late stages
