Del Mar for Sunday 1 August 2021

Like today's card. 20 cent pick 6 carryover is getting sizable. 

Best of luck as always!


race 1    above average clarity

5  Big Sweep   very powerful sprint efforts/figs (not so hot in 2 lifetime route races) and the meets top gun Prat has been aboard for all of her career races........filly is versatile as she is capable of winning on or off of the pace.....hard not to like Prat up on a "versatile" sort

3  Forest Caraway   away since 18 Oct 20 but that might be a good thing for this Miller three year old filly as her best to date was run "fresh as it gets" as in her MSW debut......and usually 1st time Lasix a very good thing for Miller runners

4  Just Distorted


race 2    average clarity

6  Urban   nice work regiment for this MSW debut runner from the Callaghan barn.......filly (facing the boys) went for $375K at sale as a two year old so the connections got a good look at what they were getting........trainer is off to a very good start at the new meeting and year in and year out he does a nice job developing two year old runners.......turf pedigree for the youngster is good

2  Time to Party   another MSW debut runner who appears ready to roll and draws Prat who is winning everything in sight and many of his winners are riding for Mr Miller........and like our top choice his pedigree is good for the green carpet

7  Bombs At Cocal

3  No Limitation


race 3    average clarity

5  Enbarr  copious works for this Baffert two year old colt making his MSW debut.......and.......the last two gate works say that he is extremely sharp at the right time as in right before his hot combo in Baffert/and Cedillo winning 9 of their last 20 as a team

4  Penetrator   Prat riding for Hollendorfer seems for this two year (especially his lone work at Dmr a best of 90 bullet gate work) suggest he is well meant in his MSW......dangerous sort

7  Khantaro d'Oro

1  Pinehurst

2  Haskelled


race 4    average clarity

6  Leisurewear   the D'A has been incredibly good having his Euro invaders that he gets ready to roll 1st time running in the U S of A.........and he draws Prat to ride this one.......last race run overseas was her strongest to date and run off of 3 months rest......3 months rest again for today's race........such a deal

7  Zero Tolerance   very dangerous MSW 1st time starter from the Miller barn.......three year old filly she has been training well and  mom has tossed 3 grass winners from 3 starters.....trainer is red hot.......dangerous 2nd selection

2  New Drama

10  M Is for Magic

3  Brazilian Secret


race 5    average clarity

5  Reedley   Mullins drops this fellow 2 levels following a win but the purse is awfully nice for an 8K claimer so the move does not seem very speed in the field and a good tough to get by speed rider up in Maldonado

2  Rinse and Repeat   another who is dropping multiple levels who seems very well meant fact if it wasn't for his 14 2nd's and only 5 wins he would have been our top pick-a-rue

3  Next Flight

6  Stay Happy

9  Lucky Ryan Seven


race 6    average clarity  

(AE 11 Into Touring  has a shot if she draws into the field)

3  Burrow Down   sprint-sprint-route scenario for this invader who owns a decent pedigree (and the is rather subtle) for a route and the turf and who is training very well at one of my favorite training is good to see that filly raced inside in both of her races as saving ground thru at least turn one would enhance her chances of success

10  Very Scary   useful MSW dirt debut at Lrc and the a.m. work since hint she benefitted from the race.......and Prat is willing to ride which supports the notion this filly is sharp........decent grass and route pedigree.......tough post but the right jock aboard to handle it

9  Baby's Dream

6  Fliplit

5  Precious Insight


race 7    average clarity

5  Grandconcourse Guy   turf to dirt -  MSW to MC - vastly improved a.m. work - plenty of things point to this Glatt (who is off to a hot start at the Dmr meeting) youngster running a big race in his 2nd lifetime start

4  Frost Warning   23% (win) trainer in 2021 in Jonathan Wong but he is 27% win with his last 175 3rd following a layoff which is the case here for this gelding coming off his lifetime best.....and it is noteworthy the the race was his 1st on conventional dirt........three year old appears to have the best early speed in the race and draws a speed jock.......pedigree hints the 6 1/2 furlongs is a good thing

7  No Hnag Charlie

2  K P Silver Bullet

12  Kattah


race 8    average clarity 

(AE 13 Too Late  has a shot if he draws into the field)

5  In Vronsky Style   very strong grass sprint in latest which was run off of a 2 month months and 9 days off since the race should be a good thing as should the abbreviated sprint distance of 5F as his 5F split in a 6F race on 23 May is impressive

2  Fly the Sky   race is loaded with speedballs and this Miyadi four year old should save ground thru most of the turn sitting far off of the pace and come flying late

6  Catemaco

8  Thismustbetheplace

3  Star Racer


race 9    average clarity

6  Venetian Harbor   best filly by my book in this field if she brings her "A game"......and the way she ran turf to dirt (off of 6 1/2 weeks rest) in her 2nd lifetime start one would think today's scenario racing turf to dirt off of 8 weeks rest would be a good thing........stout a.m. work since her turf race/win is stellar

3  As Time Goes By   Baffert's fine filly is (4 3 1 0) in route races and draws Money Mike Smith again.......and you have to like that Smith has options as his filly has shown she can win on or off of the pace......not easy to split top three selections

7  Shedaresthedevil

1  Warren's Showtime


race 10    average clarity

(AE "s 12, 13 & 14 all have a shot if any of them draw into the field)

8  Shizaam   lone race in the USA was a big number and disguised by a very bad start in an extremely fast 5F turf heat for the F & M MSW level at Dmr........previous race was in Ireland (and at today's one mile turf distance) where she beat 14 of 17 foes and the 3 horses that beat her came back to win their next start.......not sure if she is ready fresh but if she is she should be a ton

5  Quinevere   sure like the cut back in distance of a full 1/4 mile for this Miller filly coming in from since arriving in S Cal are quite good......dangerous sort

1  Beirut Beauty

2  Mongolian Mission

6  The Ginger Girl

7  Bellize
