Red Mile Race Reviews

Saturday, August 11th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                4-1-5

1

Sax Solo

Chi-town invader has been facing some tough company recently as well, and no question he has landed in a much more comfortable spot.  Should be close with his best effort. 

2

Lion of Judah

Sprinted by the field on opening night to pull off the 9-1 upset, but steps up to take on much tougher company in small field here.  Would need a LOT more. 

3

Diannas May Day

Mare shows a decent runner up finish 3 starts back in Indy, but has really been having some stamina issues in her last couple.  Easier spot tonight, but still going to have to find some late kick to get a piece. 

4

Deo Gloria

Canadian invader has hit the board in 8 of 11 on the year.  Oddly enough she Q’fed back in Canada just one day after her last race, and it appears to be a decent work.  Long ship back here, is she ready at first asking? 

5

Mrtnlufr Bluegrass

Raced evenly in KY Fair Final as well, finishing up less than a couple of lengths behind #1.  He is likely to be sitting last once again in a small field, can he sprint by them late?  Your call. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                3-5-8-6

1

Mor Storms Coming

Debuted locally with an even effort from post 9 on opening night, and moves to the pole tonight in what appears to be an easier crew.  Should be sitting MUCH closer.  WIDE open field.  Maybe.   

2

Blazing Tower

Was rolling pretty good on the end of it last time to finish up a nice 2nd.  Certainly fits with these, and looks to be one of many with a big shot.  Demand value with whomever you choose.  Bolon opted here over #4.    

3

Our Little Pilgrim

11yo campaigner has had plenty of success here in the past, and drops in for just a $2.5k tag after racing his last few in a bit tougher at Scioto.  Ready for the drop and pop tonight?  I think so. 

4

Jaxx

Wasn’t a big fan of his the other night, but I will have to say that he raced fairly decent after sitting close in a very quick opening half.  Still needs to find some stamina late.  Bolon opted off to drive #2 instead.    

5

Paul T

Shows beating some decent claimers down in Paducah, and makes his local debut for team Anthrop.  Don’t overlook him in here with the ‘slower’ race miles.  Should be a nice price, and has a BIG shot. 

6

Fox Valley Michael

I was all over him on opening night, and quite honestly he raced very flat in his local debut.  Drops in for a tag now, and he IS better than the last effort. 

7

Beach Bandit

The bandit was aggressive on opening night, and he ended up finishing an ‘ok’ 4th.  Should continue to improve with each start after the extended layoff missing last season, but not sure he’s ready just yet. 

8

All is Saidanddone

I was satisfied with his performance last Sunday, and I feel like he will continue to improve here in his 2nd local start.  Shehan going to have to find a way to work him into it from post 8.  Price should be right. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                6-7-5-4

1

Sister Gola

This mare absolutely LOVES this track and is coming off a blowout win at Bluegrass.  All that being said, this is an extremely tough crew.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

2

Felipe Makaay

Decent try last time, and keep in mind that was his first start back off an almost 5 month break.  He was over 20 lengths behind #6 in the Q’er though.  Only underneath. 

3

Frozen Assets

Has held his own down in South Fla, but taking a big step up against a couple of nice trotters tonight.  I’ll watch one over the red clay first. 

4

Miss DW Chip

You certainly can’t argue that this mare is RAZOR sharp right now, having won 3 of her last 4 at Bluegrass.  Facing a far tougher crew tonight, needs her very best to hit the ticket. 

5

Blueridge Legacy

Held his own against some talented older trotters at Balmoral, and this guy has won over this strip in the past.  Not quite sure he can go with the top two, but should be close with any luck at all. 

6

Don Giovanni

Wow!!!  I was here for the dazzling AM effort, and it was simply amazing given the fact that he has raced one time in essentially the last 3 years.  If he is anywhere close to that tonight, go ahead and put a circle around him. 

7

Prayer Session

Very talented 3yo is likely to be one of the favorites for the $250k KYSS here on September 9th, and he came up only a ½ length short back on 6-16 going for $343k in Canada.  All that said, I must admit I was a tad disappointed in his local appearance at the fair.  Needs a grade ‘A’ effort to go with #6. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                7-3-6-4

1

Whispers Art

Has proven to be very competitive against similar at Scioto, and lands on the pole in short field.  His best should put him right in the mix. 

2

Broadway Fame

Made it back to back wins with a going away score on opening night, but takes a step up to take on higher level claimers here.  Going to need even more to hang with these.  Your call. 

3

Idbegoodatthat

He was VERY good at what he does last Sunday, as he sat fairly close to a quick opening pace and sprinted by his rivals late to pull off the 13-1 stunner.  Any similar effort should make him handle the jump up in class. 

4

Skyway Scoot

Lone mare in the field finally appeared to show some signs of improvement in her last effort in Columbus.  Doesn’t have much early speed though, and will need to pick up live cover to have any shot.  KB opted to #3.    

5

Mor Than Enuf Russ

Russ has been really spreading out his starts this season, and I’m not sure why that is the case.  Was a winner in his most recent effort, but taking a big hike up tonight.  Pass.  Loney opted to #7 instead.      

6

Blue Star Majesty

Triple T will likely be blasting early with this guy.  Look at the back class here, 19 wins in 75 starts with over $432k made.  Impressive!  Price will be right.  I wouldn’t blame you for taking a shot! 

7

Paradise Ragtime

World renowned traveler here, shows being in Michigan, western KY, and California just over his last 4 starts!  Hung right with this class down in Paducah.  I’m on board.  Loney opted here over #5.    

 

Race 5                     Selections                                1-4-5-3

1

Doc’s Hope

For a moment, this was the fastest 2yr filly in the country last year after she went a dazzling 1:56.4 at Thunder Ridge in May.  She was shut down after that effort, but has come back with authority this season.  I know it is a 3yo racing older mares here, but they are going to have to prove to me that they can beat this one.  

2

Hoosier GB Diamond

Held her own at this level at Bluegrass, but faces some tough rivals here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

3

Tiaras Bluff

Mare has had some success here in the past, but I think she may be spotted a bit ambitiously.  She will likely be coming from off the pace.  Asking quite a bit against these. 

4

Dollys Joy

Continues to improve with each start back on the year, and should be ready to rock here in her 4th start back of the season.  A winner in 10 of 30 LT, and hit the board in 23 of 30.  Take a long look here. 

5

Kilowatts Fantasy

Shows some decent lines in OH & IN, but I have a hard time believing a mare that shows $6k claiming lines is going to beat #’s 1 & 4 in this spot.  Stranger things have happened I suppose. 

6

Premier Cami Cane

Shows a 53.3 mark earlier this year at Dover, but has ran into some stamina issues in her last couple at Bluegrass.  I’ll wait until we see her show some signs of improvement. 

7

Thatillbsweet

Back to back wins to closeout her Bluegrass Downs meet, as she nears in on $100k LT earnings.  Lands on the outside against a solid crew for her local debut.  Going to need even more to hang with the top ones here. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                                8-6-4-9                                    See Pick 4 ticket at the end

1

Sempre Ribera

Did he really get off at 285-1 last time??  Wow, talk about a big price!  Not quite sure he will be that big of a number here, but still going to be large.  Needs even more.   

2

Blueridge Hall

Raced evenly here in his debut, and truthfully he only finished a little over a length behind #4 who was a heavy favorite in that field.  I still wasn’t overly impressed, but he definitely fits with these. 

3

Brooklets Power Play

Making his 1st start after almost 4 months on the shelf.  May come up a bit ‘shorthanded’ off the break, I’ll wait until he gets a start or two under his belt. 

4

Jate O’del

Went off a heavy favorite just as he should in a weak spot here on opening night, and really never showed much interest in a disappointing 3rd place finish.  Changes barns tonight.. Will it wake him up?  Wish I knew.  

5

King’s Lightning

9yo has a little back class, but has been very lightly raced over the last couple of seasons.  Changed barns for his last start, and is fairly hard to gage off that try.  I’ll watch one before crowning him. 

6

Hillcrest Domingo

Gelding broke a piece of equipment in the Q’fer, so he followed up with a work by himself on Sunday and I will have to say he looked fairly impressive.  Can he go with the favs in here?  Good question. 

7

Mr Cool

Shows some decent efforts at Bluegrass, but hooks up with a lot tougher crew tonight.  I will pass for now. 

8

Thank You Mamma

Mamma got used hard in a sizzling opening quarter at Scioto in her last, but she does appear to be potentially rounding the corner since adding lasix two back.  Barn does well here. 

9

Ab’s Beach Boy

This guy has had some unbelievable miles here throughout his career, and he has made that nearly $300k the hard way taking on all comers in top overnights.  All that said, he has been on the shelf for 10 months and shows only one ‘ok’ Q’fer and gets slammed with post 9.  Not typically a recipe for success right off. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                8-1-3-5

1

Doc’s Coco

One of the FEW things I prognosticated correctly on opening night was this filly hitting the board at a BIG price.  No question that the lasix has helped her step her game up.  Not overly tough field, should be very close.   

2

GD Rosanne

11 LT starts and filly is yet to hit the board, however she moves into the hands of Team Neafus and probably lands in an easier spot than she’s ever faced.  Still going to have to prove it.  

3

Who’s West West

Made up a lot of ground in his local debut, and that was certainly a better start than it probably looks on paper.  A fairly comfortable spot, and any similar effort puts him right in the mix. 

4

Droppinthe Kurtin

I’ll have to admit that I was a bit disappointed in his last try, as he was simply outpaced down the lane.  Going to need to find more. 

5

Momspacific flight

Filly has been outpaced in her last several tries in Indy, and now drops in for her first local try and picks up the services of Kyle Bolon.  She may win, but I can’t accept a short price on her.  I’ll look elsewhere.    

6

Half Dozen Roses

2yo taking on older, and I’m not quite sure she is ready for this test.  Should continue to improve though. 

7

Alluring Art

Had every opportunity to win on Sunday, and came to a screeching halt after having an unpressured lead for the majority of the mile.  Must find more stamina to compete.  Barn is always a threat though.   

8

Show Me Some Skin

Very disappointed in her KY Fair Final, but she IS better than that.  She faces a fairly comfortable crew here, and anything close to her best puts her squarely to the top of the list. 

9

Goodtimin Cam

Hasn’t shown a lot of ability just yet, but I will say that he did pass a couple in the Q’fer when adding lasix and maybe that will be the magic key.  I’ll watch closely for any further improvement. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                8-6-3-5

1

Blueridge Straight

Shows some solid starts in OH, but this is no easy bunch he has landed in against.  Should sit close to the pace and will try and hang on for a piece.  

2

Father in Law

Got home by a nose last time, but another that could be in deep water against this crew.  Would need to pick it up quite a bit. 

3

Minks Request

Has closed very well in his last couple, and should improve while stretching out to the big track tonight.  Having said that, I’d love to see him in for a $5k tag rather than against these kind.  Nisonger opted here over #5.    

4

Bar B’s Apache Cam

Appears to be a VERY tough spot for him.  Not for me. 

5

Papaknowsbest

Held off #3 to win by a neck 2 starts back, and raced fairly well in his last start also.  Should be blasting early and sitting up close.  Maybe underneath.  Nisonger opted to #3 instead.    

6

Real or Magic

Has been hooking up with tough overnight company in Chicago recently, and he appears to fit well with these.  Likely to be the fav, and is certainly the one to beat. 

7

Arringarosa

Would like this guy a lot more if he wasn’t coming off a scratched sick line and hadn’t missed a month prior to tonight.  Likes this track, but I’m going to have to watch one first before endorsing. 

8

Jagger Blue Chip

Checked in with the fastest mile of the year at Thunder Ridge in winning the Open in 54.4.  Makes his 1st start for new barn tonight after a nice Q’fer.  The horse that finished 2nd in his Q’fer came out to win on opening night as well.  Should be all systems go. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                1-5-3-2

1

Bucky Can’t Caddy

Always been a fan of this guy, and he does show a win earlier this year at Hoosier in 54.4.  Anything close to that kind of mile puts him right in the mix, we could be looking at another live longshot! 

2

Title Shot

12yo suffered through  a very tough trip against similar company at Scioto, and still held on to pick up a 4th place bone.  Any smoother journey should allow him to be close. 

3

Irish Big Guy

Charged home well in his local debut to finish up right behind #5, and any similar effort would make him another with a big chance here in WIDE open finale. 

4

O’Rourke Three

NY invader has 250 LT starts and over $634k in career earnings.  He has always been a hard knocking horse, but he will likely take a lot of tote action here and I’m going to watch one first. 

5

Crime Scene Cruzer

Sprinted right by his rivals to cruise home for a win here on Sunday, and takes a slight jump up for his 2nd local start.  Couldn’t have looked any better the first time around, can he follow it up? 

6

Get Ready to Rumba

Lone mare in the field invades from Ocean Downs in Maryland, and she hasn’t been finishing her miles that well recently.  Would take a lot more to ‘rumba’ with these.   

7

Dugan Run Dream

This guy has been holding his own against lesser company at Raceway, but hooks a fairly contentious group in his first local start.  Not tonight. 

8

Sandbar Slugger

The slugger got good here around this time last year and he ships in after a couple of tough trips on the OH fair circuit.  I’ll watch one before hopping on board. 

9

Real Hanover

Shows one dull effort in between a couple of scratched injured lines…. Hmm…  If he was anywhere close to right, he could easily be the best in here.  Take a long look at him on the track.  Your call. 

10

Feys Blitzen Grey

The grey gladiator makes his 2012 debut over the red clay, and lands in post 10 after a decent layoff.  I suspect he will use this one as a tightner from way out here.  Should be flying late regardless.
