Del Mar for Friday 30 August 2013


Five days left at beautiful Del Mar. I will be sad to see the meeting end and look forward to a double dose of Dmr in 2014.

We will cover 2 or 3 days of the Fairplex meeting and will let you know which days on Tuesday. 


race 1    slightly above average clarity

2  Splendirerous Moon   it took nine races to try something other than the turf and the the connections might have wished they tried it earlier on........strong 1st ever on the Dmr AW albeit at this fillies lowest level of racing ever........same jock.....same trainer........same distance

4  Lilly's Perfect   claimed for twice the price 2 1/2 months ago.......not a good claim it seems but this mare consistently runs well fresh and she is working as if ready to cut the losses this afternoon 

1  Ribot Belle    handles the GG AW well and with consistency.........and 2 of her best efforts ever were the only two times she ran at today's 1 mile distance......N Cal jock knows this filly well and has a good record riding her

3  Tornado Allie


race 2    average clarity

9  My Lucky Rose   vastly improved in 2nd lifetime start for this Baffert runner and now drops........owns decent early speed especially for today's lower level and it is somewhat hidden.......likely to be in the hunt from the get go

3  Grazenette   work tab for this Mitchell 1st timer hints that she is ready at 1st asking........and mom has tossed 2 winners from 2 starters

10  Mon Petite   rather sure this Barry Abrams 1st timer is ready in her maiden debut as she has hit the track every 6 days for over 6 weeks......wound up like a top........would have rated higher if it wasn't a tough post and a low % rider with youngsters

7  Another Victoria   


race 3    average clarity

9  Fantastic Mizz   consistent sort and enough early foot here to overcome her outside post.......does her best running stalking the lead and she has a decent chance to do that here 

7  Gulsary   Proctor Euro invader has a work regiment at AP that suggests he has this 4 year old quite ready for her 1st in the good old U S of A.......he could have raced versus easier at AP but didn't which says he is pretty high on his newcomer

5  Blues and Silvers    should be able to get the wood on turn 1 and might even get the lead with the 4 horses starting inside of her not having as much early speed.........very consistent when she gets the lead or sits close to it

10  Double Ante

Long-shot consideration:   Vionnet    obvious 5F prep in last following the extended hiatus from the track.........aggressive work tab since......full throttle go today at a route


race 4    slightly below average clarity

1  Quick Approval   Hendricks is quietly having a good Dmr meeting and sure appears to have this youngster well conditioned to be ready in his maiden debut......most impressive tightly spaced work series

2  Peggy Lynn    another trainer having a good meeting at Del Mar that has a dangerous looking work tab for his 1st timer.........been in training a long time and now and then has some fast drills

4  Mia's Storm   solid debut last so Mac seems fit to move this filly up a notch for her 2nd lifetime endeavor........fig/effort is par like for today's level and par is often good enough especially in the British Open

8  Gracie Ragazza


race 5    slightly below average clarity

6  Amp and Adrenalin   big hidden (broke slightly tardy....checked on the 2nd turn.....ran wide) move forward in last in his 1st ever on the Dmr synthetic.........and decent history running off of short rest like he is here

5  Afflication   very competitive in 3 of 4 lifetime races going a route of ground.......and he seems like a very manageable sort going a route and that is 1/2 the battle

1  Salah Champ   wide trip close to a strong pace on a inside day hides a much improved race.........1st at route but he handled 7F at 2 so I doubt a 1 mile route will be much of a problem

3  Seven Bridges


race 6    slightly above average clarity

4  Fury Kapcori   had his 6F prep.......all systems go for this Hollendorfer colt who ran an extremely powerful 2nd in Grade 1 at Hollywood last December......showed sizzling pace and held together well.......very few can

7  Tiz a Minister    consistent fast closing off pace route horse gets ample pace to enhance his chances today

6  Patsky Kid   Tom Proctor invader from the Midwest is 3 for 4 on the AW.......0 for 3 on conventional dirt and 0 for 7 on the turf.........all weather here at Del Mar

9  U'narack


race 7    slightly above average clarity

1  Trickle Again   chased a fast pace in last and tired a little bit in the late stages.......nice series of 4 works since.......good post.........rider upgrade.........and cut back of 1/16th sure seems like a positive

3  Tribal Valentine   nobody in S Cal is better getting a horse to fire on the grass in their maiden debut than Richard Mandella and the works hint this one is ready to roll

4  Warren's Dixie Bell   strong a.m. so in the p.m. so far.........might be a morning glory to some extent.......and many a morning glory often awaken on the turf.........and this filly has decent grass breeding........and the trainer historically is quite good 1st time on the sod (9 for his last 45)

8  St. Malo's Gate

5  Cee's Tizzy Belle

6  Van Diem Avenue
