Red Mile Race Reviews

Saturday, August 18th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

Race 1                     Selections                                1-4-3-5

1

Scootin Around

Northfield invader looks to have landed in a very comfortable spot in the debut for our 2011 leading barn.  Not much on taking short priced favorites, but I can’t see any scenario where this one gets beat. 

2

Leadmeto thetruth

The truth is he only led for less than half a mile after blasting out in his first local start, and tired BADLY late.  Would take a complete turnaround here.  Loney opted here over #6.   

3

KB’s Brock

A couple of even efforts to kick off the meet, and now he lands in a smaller field and should be sitting much closer to the pace.  Stiltner always seems to be in the right place at the right time.  Maybe underneath. 

4

Sempre Ribera

An even 4th place finish against a solid crew last time, and is one of many in here with a shot at the minor awards.  Looks wide open behind the fav. 

5

Beach Bandit

Made a break before the start last time and was never in it.  Has some early speed if Shehan elects to step on the gas early, could be in line for a nice trip behind #1.  Your call. 

6

Mor Than Enuff Russ

Takes a substantial drop down to the $2.5k level after an even effort in for a $5k tag.  Should enjoy the class relief, again it’s wide open behind the fav.  Loney opted off in favor of #2. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-6-3-2

1

Dollys Joy

Got locked in a duel with #6 last time past the half and that took its toll as she tired late.  Should be in line for a nice trip from the pole tonight, and I think she could be ready for a big rebound.  I’ll take a shot.   

2

Yndra Hanover

Closed decently last time to pick up a nice 3rd, and takes a big jump up into Open company here.  However, it hasn’t come up overly tough for this class.  Needs her very best still. 

3

Kilowatts Fantasy

Was no match for the winner last week, but did rally by her other rivals late to finish in the runner up spot.  Any similar effort puts her close once again, but I’ll try and beat her at what is likely to be a short price. 

4

Dutzs Charm

Much better effort on Wednesday night at Indy, but still asking a lot for her to take on Open company here.   

5

Kay Low

Tired after being used hard early in her last at Scioto, but she has proven that she can hold her own against this type of company.  I could make a case for nearly any of these. 

6

Premier Cami Cane

The cami cane fired straight to the lead last time and got a bit stubborn when she faced an early challenge from #1.  Couldn’t hold off the eventual winner late, but still not a bad try to be 5th.  Fits with these. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                4-1-6-5

1

Swingin B

Just one win to show for 10 starts on the season, but this filly appears to have landed in a comfortable spot for her local debut.  Should sit close and be able to hang around for a piece late. 

2

Watcha talkinabout

Tough to gage the IL fair starts, but this guy was beaten by a 2yo filly in his only try down at Bluegrass Downs.  Would need a lot more to make any major noise against these. 

3

Muncie

Not a bad try last time, but keep in mind that was only a 4 horse field where he finished 4th.  The track was WAY off for that race, and he should continue to improve with each start. 

4

Dancing in Terror

2yo makes his career debut tonight, and looked fairly good in his local Q’fer.  Not sure what the scratch was all about last time, but this isn’t overly tough.  I’m on board. 

5

Smoke Rings

Shows winning in 3 of 4 starts this year, with the only loss coming after he was impeded at the start last time.  Not sure how tough the competition is at the fairs though.  Price should be right.  Your call. 

6

Papasgothe bestgo

Not a bad effort to be 4th behind a heavy fav last time, and this appears to be an even easier crew he has hooked tonight.  Will he have the best go?  Maybe. 

7

It’s True

2yo filly hooked an impossible spot last time for her first career start, and this should be much more to her liking.  Still going to have to pick it up quite a bit though. 

8

Veloce

Tried to go down the road last time at huge odds only to tire late.  Lands back on the outside, and no reason to think he won’t be blasting to the top once again.  Catch him if you can. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                8-9-3-2

1

Artmani

PA invader has had some stamina issues recently, and would have to find more in the tank late to hang with the top ones in here.  Hooks a pretty solid group tonight for this level.  Bolon opted to #9 instead.    

2

Lion of Judah

Put in another solid effort to finish up 3rd behind #’s 3 & 8 last time, and he has really picked up his game since arriving locally.  Not sure he is ready to beat them just yet, but maybe underneath.  

3

Sax Solo

Made an aggressive attempt as the fav in his first local try, and ended up being overpowered by #8 in deep stretch to settle for 2nd.  Draws inside of his main rivals tonight, and should be a major player once again. 

4

Annrenee

Another that is tough to gage off her IL fair efforts, but she does show winning a race at Hoosier in 56.4 earlier this year.  I’ll watch her go around the big track once before endorsing. 

5

Diannas May Day

She raced evenly against many of these same rivals last time, but she ended up finishing last in the small field.  Things aren’t going to get any easier here. 

6

Awinkand.

Packs plenty of early speed, but stamina has been the issue with him as of late as well.  Needs more. 

7

Kinda Flighty

Hasn’t had much to offer against far tougher company lately in Indy, but she should like the class relief in her local debut.  Trainer jumps in the bike here, your guess is as good as mine. 

8

Deo Gloria

Very impressed by the effort from this filly last time, as she made it 6 of 12 now for her career.  That was her first start since arriving from Canada, and she will likely be better in her 2nd try tonight.  BIG shot. 

9

Lotto Ticket

Took all the worst of it in his last start, yet still got the job done for at least his 5th in a row.  No question he is absolutely blasting early from post 9.  Barn been on a roll.  Can he take them all the way? 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                8-7-3-5

1

Say It’s True

He won that last race much easier than it looks on paper under very little encouragement whatsoever.  That much I can say is true.  Has he cured his breaking problems with the move to the big track?  Maybe true, maybe not.  

2

Spitfire Rose

Shows an even effort against overnight company last time at the Ocean, but is she really ready to step up and take on open company?  No. 

3

Miss DW Chip

Had been in fine form down in Paducah, but got sizzled last time when trying to keep up with the favs early.  Won’t be chasing that kind of early pace in here, should be able to carry the early speed much further. 

4

Long’s Sunshine

Didn’t have much luck against NW last time, and things aren’t going to get any easier against Open company tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Red Rocks

First local start for the barn with this trotter, and he typically packs a pretty good late punch and should be helped out with the stretch to the bigger oval.  I’ll use him underneath. 

6

Sister Gola

In over her head last time, but this mare typically gets pretty good during our meet here every year.  Still may be a notch too high against these.  I’ll pass for now. 

7

Farmer Jones

Classy veteran has over $363k in the bank lifetime and has been on quite a roll recently with only a DQ costing him a long win streak.  Always shows up with his best effort, is he good enough to beat the fav though? 

8

Blueridge Legacy

Picked up the pieces last time in finishing a game runner up to a very nice trotter.  Should be better with a local start under his belt, and has drawn in a much softer spot tonight.  All positive indicators.  BIG shot. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                1-7-4-6                    Start of the Pick 4                  See ticket at the end

1

Billtown Road

Didn’t get the best of trips in his first local try, and still rallied nicely to pick up 3rd in his first start back in a year.  Should be tightened up and ready to rock.  I’m on board.  Loney opted here over #6.    

2

Princess Warrior

Never finished 1-2 in 20 career tries, and she would need to find a lot more stamina to hang around for anything against these.  Not for me. 

3

B Good Lexi

Even effort at the fair last time, but hasn’t had much success in her pari-mutuel conquests thus far.  Would have to pick it up quite a bit.  I’ll pass. 

4

Looksgood onu

2yo filly faced far tougher company last time and raced evenly.  Takes on another older group here, but should be a much better spot for her than the last.  Should continue to improve in 3rd LT start.  KB opted to #7.   

5

Electrician

Hasn’t had much to offer recently, has to find a way to keep the lights on late.    

6

Doc’s Coco

Got pinned in last time behind a horse that went completely backwards.  You can toss out that effort, and she had been racing good prior.  Any smoother journey puts her right in the mix.  Loney opted to #1 instead.    

7

Momspacific flight

Appeared to be home free last time, but she really shortened up her strides and got collared late.  Should be blasting to the top once again.  Catch her if you can.  Bolon opted here over #4. 

8

Alluring Art

Followed the eventual winner up last time, and could only muster an even 5th place finish.  Not an overly tough group, but needs a better late kick. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                3-2-5-4

1

Jena Mac Love

Scioto invader takes a slight drop in class tonight but this may actually turn out to be a bit tougher group than she faced in her last.  Not in love with her here. 

2

Springhouse Rebel

Big effort to finish up a game 2nd last time, but couldn’t get by the pacesetter under heavy encouragement down the lane.  Any similar effort puts him right in the mix. 

3

Feys Blitzen Grey

Never in it in first local start, but drops into a more comfortable spot for his 2nd start over the track.  9yo has a LOT of big efforts over this surface in the past.  I’m willing to take a flier on KY’s ‘grey gladiator.’   

4

Blue Punch

I know he was 2nd in the last try, but I must admit that I was not overly impressed with that effort.  He passed a lot of tired horses late and never threatened for the win.  Will need more of a punch against these. 

5

Blueridge Straight

Was in an impossible spot last time, and was just outsprinted by his rivals late.  Should find the class relief to his liking.  No question he fits with these. 

6

O’Rourke Three

Classy veteran never fired in his first start over the oval, and I’ll wait until we see some signs of improvement before hopping on board. 

7

McDance Desire

3yo filly has her work cut out for her in against some older classy war horses in this spot.  Had a big win over the track last year as a 2yo though.  Your call. 

8

Addison

Stuck on the outside of a tough group for his local debut.  Not tonight.  Stiltner opted to #4 instead.    

 

Race 8                     Selections                                8-4-1-7

1

Hereiam Coolwater

Chi-town invader has been holding her own against similar company at Balmoral, and has had some success here in the past.  Competitive group here, but she should sit close. 

2

Money on Tap

A decent effort in his first spin around the track, and he should be poised and ready to roll here in his 2nd local try.  Appears to be a tougher group though.  Would need his very best. 

3

MajorWorries

Should have some major worries against these.  Not tonight. 

4

Doc’s Zippy

Big effort at Hazel last time, and shows a win in 55 out in California earlier this year.  Appears to be heading in the right direction.  Must respect. 

5

Crime Scene Cruzer

A sensational win in his first start here, but was quite honestly a bit of a disappointment as the fav in his last try.  Probably the toughest group he has faced yet tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

6

Hillcrest Domingo

Turned things around with a nice try last time, and was only beaten late by the pocket rocket.  Looks to have landed back in a solid crew tonight though.  Would have to pick it up even more. 

7

I Ota Win

He put the pressure to the fav last time, and battled him all the way to the finish to end up 2nd.  Draws back into quite a tough crew, but should be able to build on the last performance. 

8

Jordan Jeffrey

Well, by now if you have seen this barn race a few tonight already.  If they have been firing, than no reason not to think this guy won’t as well.  No question he is the one to beat on paper. 

Race 9                     Selections                                4-8-1-6

1

Radical Cam

Made his first start in over 2 years last time at OH fair, and it appears to be a solid effort on paper.  No question he has the talent to go with these, will he be ready to fire in his 2nd start off the shelf? 

2

Sweetlittleheart

Outpaced last time, and not sure she is ready to go with these just yet as well.  Pass. 

3

Mobil Big John

Big John packs plenty of early speed, and I would suspect he will be headed to the front in this spot.  I think he is better than those recent efforts indicate, but still asking a lot to go with this crew.  Loney opted to #7.   

4

Jate O’del

Changed barns prior to the last start and didn’t appear to have a lot of pop before he made the break in stride.  Disappointed twice now as an odds on fav.  I’m willing to give him one more shot before moving on. 

5

Rocknroll Herman

Never threatened in his last, and appears to be in tough here as well.  Pass. 

6

Dugan Run Dream

Saved all the ground last time to finish up a solid 4th, and any similar effort puts him right in the mix against these.  Price won’t be nearly as big this time though. 

7

Unreal Appeal

Missed a couple of weeks now after being sick, and it’s hard to find much appeal there.  I’ll watch one first.  Loney opted here over #3.    

8

Ab’s Beach Boy

Was in the middle of what appeared to be a big move last time, before hooking wheels with #4 when he made a break.  I saw enough in that one to know you better take a long look at this guy tonight. 

9

Artistic Dynasty

Couldn’t hang with similar company earlier this summer at Scioto.  Not tonight. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                5-8-1-2

1

Arringarosa

Didn’t particularly like this guy coming off the scratched sick last time, but I must admit that he raced fairly well.  Should sit much closer and be tightened up for this one.  Maybe. 

2

Minks Request

Came first over against #5 last time, and tired late after dueling for a decent way.  I can’t fault him for that effort, but hooks every one that beat him again here. 

3

Real Hanover

Got back on track with an off the pace rally last time, but taking a BIG step up to take on Open company here.  Not sure I’m convinced he is ready to go with these at this point. 

4

Bar B’s Apache Cam

No match for this group last week, and I don’t see anything changing here.  Pass. 

5

Jagger Blue Chip

Huge effort off the layoff last time, as he got stung early and still held on for a game 2nd behind #8 late.  Shouldn’t have to work as hard for the lead from inside position this time.  I’m on board. 

6

Papaknowsbest

Tired late to finish 4th against these last time, and he better be ready to go a big opening quarter if he is going to try and outfoot #5 off the gate this week.  Needs his very best to hit the ticket. 

7

Topville Diamond

Was a $3k claimer back in the middle of June, I think he may be a bit ambitiously spotted here. 

8

Real or Magic

Things set up perfectly for him last time, but I must say he won under absolutely no encouragement whatsoever.  Assigned the outside post for this, and figures to be a short price.  Must respect.    

 

Race 11                   Selections                                5-7-8-3

1

Skyway Scoot

Lone mare in the field raced evenly at this level last time, and may have landed in an even tougher group tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Bolon opted to #8 instead.   

2

SBD First Blood

MI invader has run into some stamina issues of late and takes on a solid group of claimers for his local debut.  I’ll watch one first.  Bolon opted to #8 instead.   

3

Irish Big Guy

A couple of solid efforts locally thus far, and now drops in for the $3.5k tag.  This should be about where he belongs, but this is not an easy group.  Bolon opted to #8 instead. 

4

Sometimes Eternal

Never looked comfortable during the mile last time, and couldn’t keep up with #5 late.  Has been lightly raced the last couple of years.  Not sure I can endorse him against these.  Bolon opted to #8 instead.    

5

Out of my Hands

Kravchak took no prisoners last time cutting out some wicked fractions, but the gelding showed some fight by fending off his rivals down the lane.  Hard to fault him off that effort.  Right down the road again here!

6

Paradise Ragtime

I must admit that I was all over this guy last time, and he never fired off an absolutely perfect trip.  He IS better than that, but it would take a complete turnaround to hang with the top ones in here. 

7

Last Second Shot

Got pinned in for a bit last time, and I’m not convinced that Stiltner ever really got him in his best gear.  Unfortunately he has drawn back in a tough group, but I’ll toss him on underneath to provide some value. 

8

Mainline Hall

Looked invincible with that last win at Northfield, but I’m not convinced that was an overly tough group he beat.  Likely to be a very short price.  I may take a shot against this one.  Bolon opted here over #’s 1,2,3,4 & 9. 

9

Father in Law

A small horse, but he obviously has a big heart with over $142k in the bank LT.  Drops down from the Open level, but is likely to have to do it from last here.  Not a good recipe for success.  Bolon opted to #8 instead.   

Pick 4 (Races 6 – 9)
