Del Mar for Thursday 5 August 2021

So so card to start the new week of racing at Del Mar.

Best of luck as always!


race 1    average clarity

4  Paige Runner   suspect multiple level drop but the last time (8 races back) the connections risked this mare for $8K she won by 7L in a race that was run at one on the dirt and at Del Mar

1  Secret Square   quite the trainer and rider upgrade for this four year old filly and two solid back to back works support the idea that her new conditioner has improved her......that and she is 1 for 2 on the Del Mar dirt and 0 for 15 racing elsewhere

2  Red Nova

8  Sherlinda

6  Mongolian Window


race 2    average clarity

1  Tom's Surprise   very strong 1st ever at a route at Lcr in his latest......and in his previous race he showed he can handle the sod in a better than it looks 5F turf race at mile of grass to cover has a big chance to bring out another strong race one that can win this affair

5  Mahi Mahi   N Cal trainer Tamayo has had his stock ready to roll at Del Mar and he sure has improved this gelding since he claimed him 3 races back.......1st ever on the turf but his pedigree to handle it is good......that and one stout rider trainer combo over the last 2 months as in 5 for 15 win and with 8 others in the money

4  Respect the Hustle

7  Mountain Spirit

3  Indy Jones


race 3    average clarity

6  Lisette   on the improve with each and every start and in her last race which was a 6F dirt sprint she ran 4th in a race where 2nd and 3rd came back to win........and........she seems better suited to a route.......good rider/trainer combo of late.......should be a price

4  Angel of Freedom   four year old filly needs ample time between starts and Shirreffs shows patience and gives it to her......filly has earned figs that hint she might dominate this race but she hasn't been the smoothest runners

5  Flipping Fast

2  Park Avenue


race 4    average clarity

6  House Limit   usually consistent trainer Bob Hess is ice cold and he might be a little frustrated (and of course his owners too) and so he drops this gelding 3 claiming levels off of a better than it appears in print 4th place finish at the $16K level in a race that was at today's one mile dirt distance

2  T Bones Trick   trainer Jonathan Wong is dynamite 2nd out following a claim and that is the case today........five year old is (4 1 3 0) on conventional dirt and (8 3 2 1) at today's one mile distance on main track surfaces......trainer has been cold to start the meeting or this gelding would have been made top pick-a-rue

8  Jan's Reserve   

1  Studley Perfection

7  Sayin Grace


race 5    average clarity

11 Bandeena     away since late February when this filly nearly upset the applecart at 23 to 1 losing by a nose in her 1st route race........a.m. work (and at Del Mar) for today's MC20K looks more like you would see from a good MSW filly

8  Consider Me Gone   three year old filly owns three races that fit solidly here and all three were when Jessica Pyfer has been up.........endurance might be better today coming off of her 1st route race where she ran 2nd at Lrc.......filly might live up to her name this afternoon

1  Bossy Soul

3  Mamma Rama

2  Moreavino


race 6    average clarity

5  Nina En Fuego   good start to the Dmr meet for trainer Tamayo and he puts up his go to guy in Frey who also is off to a good start at Del Mar........that and the jock is (6 4 1 1) riding this consistent filly and three of the races were in one mile turf routes

3  Nice Ice   six year old mare does well with ample time between starts and gets it today.......and I like these kind as you can count on them be fit and ready as it might be months before they can race again

11  Keep Dancing

2  Kleen Karma

9  Pawnee



race 7    average clarity

8  Ko Olina   on the right end of the learning curve and her last move forward is somewhat disguised in its strength........likely feeling good as this two year old filly was able two work twice since her 18 July win and the works were only 5 days apart......wound up and ready to unwind

9  Drizella   double barrel action from the Mendez barn as he also conditions our top choice......two year old filly has always trained well but it took her third start to figure things out in the afternoon as she won a fast MSW heat at Lrc to graduate.......and since the race she has worked two strong back to back works at Del Mar

4  Gianna's Wild Cat

5  Carmen Miranda

2  At the Spa


race 8    below average clarity

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

3  Algeria   very strong efforts in his last two races which were also run at the MC50K level and at today's one mile turf distance but at suggest he has held he handles the Dmr turf course as well as the SA turf course he should be one tough cookie with 1st time Prat

8  Can't Stop This Man   wide trip on a day the rail was golden combined with a fast heat hides an effort on the dirt that earned a par like Santucci fig.........1st on the grass and a route but this three year gelding from the D'Amato barn owns a good pedigree for both

6  Circumvent

4  Bender

1  My Indy

11  Borken
