Del Mar for Sunday 1 September 2013


OK race card this afternoon and Monday's appears to be quite good.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

6  Soi Phet   best of those who can sit off the pace and still run a good race as the race should have a lively pace

4  Huntsville   another late runner who should be on the move in the late stages with an anticipated fast set of fractions being set up front

1  American Art   seems to be in the best form of the 3 speed horses in the race....the 1........the 2......and the 3


race 2    average clarity

6  Excessive Tequila   big wake in last with the blinkers on and it is hidden by a bad trip........shuffled back early and then ran wide....strong adjusted for trouble fig

5  Perfect Magic Man   awfully good work tab for this Glatt 1st timer for a bottom level maiden claimer.......speed and endurance put into the gelding

7  Ice Cream Truck    blocked about 4 lengths in last or would have graduated.......same low % jock tries it again......sure is due to start riding better

11  Moonlit Meteor

Long-shot consideration   3  Puerto Williams


race 3    above average clarity

5  Beholder   lone speed and faces so much a public work-out......should win by 1/2 dozen or more unless something goes badly wrong

4  Miss Empire  Miller filly might be best on the AW and finally gets back to it

1  Sweet Tess   likes the GG AW and most that run well on it's synthetic seem to handle the Dmr AW just fine


race 4    slightly above average clarity

9  Lumberyard Jack   both lifetime Dmr grass races are solid and they are at today's seldom run 1 3/8th mile marathon suggest another strong effort at "his" distance should occur this afternoon

3  Sumerian   just fired best ever (at today's distance for the 1st time) and it is somewhat hidden that be was blocked on the turn and stretch

1  Ransom Canyon   bred and runs as if a turf marathon will be to his liking......and the late runner gets Gomez who is so very good with late running distance grass runners

2  Stoney Fleece


race 5    slightly below average clarity

5  Via Villaggio   solid awakening in Grade 1 last and the wake up is somewhat hidden by a bad trip......broke poorly and ran wide........faces softer today

4  Lady Aspen  nice 2nd on the grass in a good field at GG in last......bothers to ship on down and this mare might be better on the AW......and the Hollendorfer runner has a good history running turf to main track surfaces

7  Dancingtothestars   another who might be better on the grass than the main track and she just fired (arguably) her lifetime best on the ever might be possible today if she holds form

6  Charm The Maker


race 6    average clarity

2  Si Sage   consistent sort has plenty of turf experience and he just fired his best ever in last and it doesn't appear that hot on since suggest he has never felt much better......should be a price

4  Rising Legend   very much on the right end of the learning curve and the way she is training hints the best is yet to come and it might be this afternoon

10  Chief Havoc   very powerful competitor when he brings his a game and he usually does when Gomez is on his back.........should be in it from the get go

7  Gabriel Charles


race 7    average clarity

6  Tiz The Key   very solid sprint MSW debut and now she attempts a route race which she is very well bred to appreciate........and her trainer is one tough individual 1st time at a route with an expensive filly

7  Exotic Behavior   decent route grass race in last gives this filly a fitness advantage over most in here and her trainer is Bob Baffert....that'll do

1  Appearance   14 to 1 for a Baffert that's a tune-up.........much more today in 2nd lifetime start at a route which she is bred just fine to handle

3  Loan Savant


race 8    average clarity

4  Hail Mary   3 of last 4 races are strong both pace wise and final time wise......needs to avoid a speed duel with the 3 one way or another.....did win MSW off the pace some

2  Minds Eye   off pace runner likes the Dmr AW and finally got to work on it in the a.m. on the 25th of August (was training at Hollywood).....and what a nice bullet 5F drill she produced.....should be sitting on a big race

5  Heir Kitty   works hint she is ready for Peter Miller.....and she sure seems to run her best at today's 6 furlong distance turf or dirt.....dangerous fresh horse

8  Kinz Funky Monkey


race 9    average clarity

2  Play It Loud   nice Belmont turf Grade 3 effort 2 back.......Mullins takes over this N.Y. invader and he must have the trump card for this colt as he is working "lights out" on the turf at Dmr
9  Dice Flavor   in top form and retains Gomez.........should appreciate the extra 1/16th on the turf today and considering he won a Grade 2 at Dmr in his last that is a scary proposition

7  Dry Summer   shuffled back and ran somewhat wide and still came flying late in an impressive Grade 2 effort on the grass at is inconsistent but lookout if he brings his "a game" once again this afternoon
3  Infinite Music


race 10    average clarity

 5  Oh Daddy Oh    rather sure this well worked Miller 1ster is meant and ready to roll........Gomez/Miller have been one hot team

8  Missing Groom   4 straight gate drills with the last 2 at 6 furlongs hints that this Hollendorfer colt is quite ready for his MSW debut

7  California Jade   blinkers on and training like a vastly improved runner and the trainer is solid 1st time with blinkers on

2  Storm Reveler


race 11    slightly below average clarity

10  Dolphin Shorts   exits a fast maiden claimer that fits fine at this higher level if she manages to produce similar this afternoon

5  Flashy Dame  small awakening in last but much more importantly she is training as if she has improved a ton since her last

1  Diocesan policy    nowhere on the grass 1st ever in the USA in last......but her lone race in Ireland was a win on the AW.....back to it today

12  Smart N Dreamy

11  With a Miracle

3  Willetta
