Red Mile Race Reviews

Saturday, October 6th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                2-6-5-1

1

Feys Blitzen Grey

Grey gelding apparently had some issues after disappearing since the beginning of the overnight meet, but put in a couple of solid AM tries to prove he’s back on track.  Absolutely wide open crew here.  Maybe. 

2

AB’s Beach Boy

Reunited with Mark Mac after those two teamed up for a dominant score here back on 9-1.  Anything even close to that effort should make him tough to beat here in short field. 

3

Do It Best

Took a bad shuffle last time, and has held his own locally against some fairly solid groups.  No doubt his best effort would put him squarely in the mix. 

4

He’s the Bomb

Has been MIA for over 45 days coming in, and is yet another that can certainly go with these on his best day.  Well beaten by #1 in the Q’fer though, might need a tightner. 

5

Last Second Shot

Really rounded into form in his last couple of overnight appearances here, and anything similar to those efforts put him in play once again.  D. Miller opted to #6 instead.    

6

Van Gundy Hanover

Interesting to see a 2yo taking on much older rivals here, but he did race evenly against stakes company here last week.  I’m just not sure I’m willing to accept a short price on him against these though.  DM chose over #5.      

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-5-3-7

1

Market Share

Honestly a bit disappointing to see the richest horse in the sport this year not take on top company in tomorrow’s KY Futurity, but at least we get to see him in action locally.  Appears tons the best in this spot. 

2

Power Play

Connections continue to tinker with this guy, as they have now removed hobbles and added lasix over the last several weeks.  Still may come up a bit shorthanded against this crew.  Tetrick opted to #1.    

3

Prayer Session

KYSS runner up rebounded with a dominant score in $125k Bucket on Jug Day, and will no doubt be blasting to the top once again in here.  Has always loved this track, yet to miss the board all season. 

4

Il Mago

Finally kept everything together last week to pull off a 15-1 upset in holding off the heavy fav down the lane in a LT best mile.  Can he keep his mind on business in an even tougher group today?  I’ll make him prove it. 

5

Lightning Storm

Showed a lot of improvement after adding lasix prior to the last start against stakes company, and should continue to improve here in his 2nd local start.  I can make a case. 

6

Natural Forces

MI champ trotted evenly in his first stretch out to the mile strip here last week, but would still need to find a lot more to contend for any of the major awards in here. 

7

From Above

Made an uncharacteristic break at the start to lose all chance last time, and may try a more conservative steer here after landing back in a tough spot from outside post.  Maybe underneath.  Tetrick opted to #1.    

8

We Belong Together

Hard to endorse after we’ve seen him make 3 consecutive breaks now, but I can tell you that this guy had some trot down the lane and was gaining prior to making the break.  Still can’t make myself play him in here though. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                1-5-4-2

1

Fresh N Fast

Lived precisely up to his name last week, after blasting right to the top and digging in gamely down the lane.  Appears to be really rounding the corner over the last month.  Should sit close once again from the pole. 

2

Mindset

($150k Lex yearling) Was moving up a bit last week but went into a break in stride after getting steppy around the far turn in his career debut.  Should save ground and sit close. 

3

Ring Leda

($65k HB yearling) Finally lands in with a decent starting post after getting stuck on the outside in his last couple.  Should sit much closer, maybe a shot at the minor awards.  Tetrick opted to #4 instead.   

4

Roar

($82k Lex yearling) Appeared to be under very careful handling last week, before being totally eliminated around the far turn when a breaker forced him very wide.  Hard to gage that effort.  Should be tightened up now. 

5

Only the Lonely

A solid effort in his local debut to blast from post 10 and carry his speed a long way.  Lands back in a perfect mid-pack post here, plenty of options for his pilot.  His best effort puts him in the mix. 

6

Bad Boy Doll

($6.5k Del yearling) Never in it from outside post last time, and still going to need a bit more speed to hang with the top ones in here.  Tetrick opted to #4 instead.    

7

Card Knock Life

($50k Lex yearling) A nice even effort last week to finish up 3rd, and lands back in what should be a similar crew here.  Possibly a shot at the minor awards once again. 

8

Dragon’s Rule

Never in it last time, and lands on the outside of another solid crew here.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                3-1-7-2

1

Big McDeal

Used hard to make the lead last week, which took its toll late as she tired down the lane.  Should be able to sit close after landing on the pole here, look to pounce late.  Maybe. 

2

Ramalama

Perfect trip following #3 up last week, and was able to pace home evenly to pick up 4th.  Not sure she can knock off the fav, but one of many with a shot at the minor awards once again. 

3

Romantic Moment

Tough trip last week, as she was forced to move first over just past the half after leaving hard off the gate as well.  Still fought willingly down the lane to hold 2nd.  Appears to have landed in a fairly comfortable spot here. 

4

Sarandon Blue Chip

Obviously still having some issues as she made a break around the far turn last time and scattered the cover flow.  Would need a big rebound here. 

5

Destiny’s Chance

Parlayed a perfect trip into a nice 2nd place finish behind the fav last time, but I’m not sure things will work out that perfectly again in here with all of the early speed inside of her.  Not today.  Gingras opted to #3 instead.    

6

Rockaround Sue

Saved ground behind #5 throughout the mile last time, and held 3rd down the lane after being unable to go by #5 for 2nd.  Not sure things will work out that perfectly for her in here either. 

7

Lightning Paige

Actually had been shuffled back quite a bit turning for home last time, and showed some pop on the end of it to sprint back by some rivals to pick up 3rd.  I would expect an off the pace try from out here.  Maybe. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                1-6-7-5

1

American Jewel

Couldn’t have possibly looked any better last week in her return to the red clay, and appeared to rebound off those 2 Delaware heats quite nicely.  May face a bit more pressure here, but she’s still the one to beat. 

2

Marty Party

Marty was scratched from the party last week, but has hit the board in 10 of 12 on the year against some of the nicest fillies around.  Will she be ready after a month on the shelf?  Good question.  Palone opted to #6 instead.    

3

Moonlit Dragon

A nice local Q’fer, but she is still going to have to prove to me that she can hang with this crew on a big track.  I’ll watch this one. 

4

Princess Cruiser

No match for many of these rivals last week, and retains longshot status here.  Pass.  Palone opted to #6 instead.    

5

Darena Hanover

Jugette Champ was used extremely hard last week, and the torrid early tempo took its toll late as she tired down the lane.  I would expect another aggressive steer here, but hopefully she can trip out behind the fav. 

6

Economy Terror

Lost all chance last week after being kneecapped around the far turn when SBC made a break in front of her.  I’m not sure she will be sitting off the pace in here, Palone likely on the gas early.  Gets another chance at #1. 

7

Shelliscape

Absolutely loved her last week and she got set up perfectly to sprint by her rivals to pull off the mild upset.  Outside post shouldn’t bother her, no question she will be flying late once again.  

 

Race 6                     Selections                                6-2-8                       $10,000 Guaranteed Pick 4 Starts Here                See Ticket at the end

1

Iyamwhat isham

Hard to knock this guy who has beaten everything that has been put in front of him recently with ease.  However, he steps up today for what is likely his toughest task to date.  D. Miller opted here over #’s 4, 5, & 6.   

2

Fudge

($35k Lex yearling) Another solid effort for the Campbell-Mcintosh team last week, as this guy was used very hard and still raced very well to be 2nd.  Lands back in post 2 here, no question a major player once again. 

3

Rocks N Bonds

($25k Lex yearling) Saved ground throughout to pick up 3rd last week, and that was off a brief layoff.  Should continue to improve tonight in only his 4th LT start.  Maybe. 

4

Electrify

($45k HB yearling) Never really looked comfortable after launching a first over attack last week before eventually going into a break around the far turn.  Made breaks in all 3 starts now, hard to hop on board.    

5

Itsahard rocklife

Never in it last week in his career debut, and not quite sure he is ready for this crew yet either.  Pass for now. 

6

Ultimate Beachboy

($57k HB yearling) Never in it last week from post 10 in big field, and he was forced wide around the far turn after #4 broke as well.  I do think there is some talent here though, I’m willing to give one more try. 

7

Yucatan

($100k Lex yearling) Another that was bothered around the far turn last week when #4 made the break.  Should be able to work out a smoother journey here in smaller field.  Your call. 

8

Spartacus PV

($52k HB yearling) Picture perfect trip last week following the eventual winner, and put him to the test down the lane before having to settle for 2nd.  Likely another aggressive steer coming here.  Big shot. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                1-2-3-5

1

Rockin Amadeus

Didn’t cross the line first, but was placed forward after the heavy fav was ruled guilty of an infraction last week in stakes action.  Dodges his main div rivals here, lands back on the pole.  Must respect. 

2

Fool Me Once

($70k HB yearling) Carved out some sizzling fractions on the front end last time, and still dug in gamely down the lane to fight off his rivals.  Very impressed with that try, any similar effort puts him close once again. 

3

Twilight Bonfire

Appeared to have no shot to reel in the leader at the head of the lane last time, but uncorked a wicked final panel to mow him down in deep stretch.  A big effort there, but likely a bit tougher crew here.  Needs his best.

4

Real Rocker

($75k Lex yearling) Race line doesn’t show it, but I believe he was determined to have been interfered with last week.  Either way, he had to check up after running up over #1.  Maybe a notch or two below the top colts in here still. 

5

Clint Westwood

($100k HB yearling) Towed into it perfectly with a 2nd over trip last time, but was unable to rally past #2 down the lane.  Still not a bad effort, and may end up with a similar journey from mid-pack post here. 

6

Thirty Two Red

($70k Lex yearling) Bothered a bit after the fav made a break in front of him down the backstretch going to the half last week.  Still paced home evenly to be 5th.  Will need to find even more here though. 

7

Modern Cruiser

($30k HB yearling) The breaker allowed him to open up to a nearly insurmountable lead at the head of the lane last week, but he was tracked down in the final strides by #3.  That was a big improvement regardless. 

8

Muscle Beachboy

($75k HB yearling) Wiped out after he was unable to avoid the trouble in front of him last week.  Lands on the outside of another tough crew, still not sure he is ready to hang with the top ones in here. 

Race 8                     Selections                                5-8-3-1

1

Modern Warfare

($20k HB yearling) Tired a bit late after launching a first over attack against the eventual winner last week, but lands on the pole once again here.  Likely to save ground, maybe underneath.  Tetrick opted to #8.    

2

Teresa’s Beach

Wiped out last week behind the confusion, but he is still yet to prove that he can go with the top level just yet.  Well beaten by #5 in his Metro Elim.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

3

Dress the Part

Really made a break for no reason last time as the field raced towards the half.  His prior efforts prove that he can hold his own with the top tier.  Possibly underneath if he minds his manners.  Campbell opted to #5.    

4

Our Dragon King

Tired out of it down the lane last week, as he could not keep up with the eventual winner late.  Things certainly aren’t going to get any easier here.  Would need a complete turnaround. 

5

Odds on Equuleus

Regardless of your thoughts on last week’s festivities, there is no debating that this guy was CLEARLY the best horse.  I fully expect him to prove that once again.  My regards to anyone that played him in there. 

6

Americas gottalent

No match for the top colts last week, and no match for #8 on the NYSS circuit prior.  I’ll wait until he lands in a better spot. 

7

Cowboy Terrier

Raced evenly against a solid crew last time, but lands in what appears to be another tough group here.  Not today. 

8

Doctor Butch

($55k HB yearling) The doctor was in all season on the tough NYSS circuit, and he’s yet to finish worse than 2nd in 11 career starts.  I’m not sure he can beat #5, but it should make for a good showdown.  Your call. 

9

Wake Up Peter

($20k Lex yearling) Maybe I am being too hard on him after that performance last week as the heavy fav, but I must admit I wasn’t overly impressed.  Did encounter trouble very briefly.  Has his work cut out from out here. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                3-11-1-10

1

Bettor’s Edge

Talk about fun?  We are tossing 12 of the best 3yo’s on the red clay for half a million dollars here… Most anticipated race of the meet in my opinion.  Things couldn’t have worked out any easier for this guy last time. 

2

Hillbilly Hanover

Not sure he is ready to hang with this crew here in full field.  Pass.  Gingras opted to #12 instead.   

3

Bolt the Duer

I have been on the bandwagon all season, but even I am scratching my head over last week’s effort.  Apparently had some sickness issues, he IS better than that.  The price should be right now as well.  I’m on board. 

4

Escape the News

May be able to escape the news, but I’m not sure he is going to be able to escape with any of the major awards here in an absolute shark tank.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Sweet Lou

A solid effort last time but he did have a perfect journey following the eventual winner (#10).  Lands in a perfect mid-pack post here in big bulky field.  Plenty of options for Palone, I think he has to step on the gas off the gate. 

6

Dapper Dude

Never really fired his best shot last time, but he has proven that he can go with the top level when things set up for him this season.  Likely to be chasing a major league pace here in big field.  Your call.  JC opted to #11.    

7

I Like Dreamin

Arrives locally in RAZOR sharp form, but it may be asking a bit much to go with the top ones in this crew.  Pass for now. 

8

Simply Business

Got caught in an impossible spot last time as they left him with absolutely no pace to chase on the front end, and he sprinted home evenly.  Likely to be coming from far back here, will need his very best punch. 

9

Damon Blue Chip

Note the barn change here, but he appears overmatched still against these.  Not today.  Tetrick opted to #10.   

10

Mel Mara

Wow!  Uncorked a vicious first over attack to throttle by #3 and power away from his rivals last week.  Certainly wasn’t done any favors with the post draw though, going to be tough from way out here. 

11

Thinking Out Loud

I gave him the slight edge as the ML fav, after pacing the fastest last quarter I have ever seen to roar by his rivals down the lane a week ago.  2nd tier shouldn’t bother him that much, flying late once again. 

12

A Rocknroll Dance

Debuted locally with a nice easy effort where he was really only asked to sprint in that final quarter.  YG may have to force his hand a bit sooner here.  Won’t be easy from post 12.  Needs his very best. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                1-2-5-6

1

Captain Treacherous

($250k Lex yearling) Just sat on the outside of his rivals last time, and sprinted by with ease when called on by Tetrick down the lane.  Appears to be in a league of his own. 

2

Good Day Mate

Got very rough gaited for a brief moment down the lane last week, before quickly catching back and sprinting home to a solid 2nd behind The Captain.  Should be in line for a nice trip, never worse than 2nd.    

3

Just Bettor

($50k HB yearling) Saved ground throughout to finish up an even 4th last week, but appears to have hooked what is an even tougher crew here.  I’ll pass against these. 

4

Visa Viper

($24k HB yearling) Bothered behind the confusion last week, but hasn’t proven that he can go with the best of the best just yet.  Pass. 

5

Dedi’s Dragon

($15k IN yearling) Another solid effort last time to finish up only a neck behind the fav in 2nd, for a colt that has really rounded into form over the last several weeks.  Any similar effort puts him close once again. 

6

Resistance Futile

($33k Lex yearling) Absolutely throttled by a lesser crew here on Sunday, in what was the first start where he put it all together.  I would expect another off the pace rally here, flying late once again.  

7

Hail the Taxi

($65k HB yearling) Finished well behind #1 in the runner up spot in the $309k Wilson, and ended up 3rd behind him last week as well.  Possibly a shot behind him once again today. 

8

Normandy Invasion

($40k Lex yearling) Raced evenly against tough company last week, but things aren’t going to get any easier here from the outside against this group.  Palone opted to #2 instead.    

 

 

 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                6-4-2-3-5                                                 10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE WAGERING

1

Artist Night

($45k Lex yearling) Has held his own on the NYSS circuit this season, but steps up to take on the best of the best here today.  Not sure I can endorse him in this crew. 

2

Apprentice Hanover

($90k Lex yearling) Never really appeared to be comfortable before going into the break last week around the far turn, but I’m assuming all systems are go with connections dropping him right back in to go. 

3

Urbanite Hanover

($11k HB yearling) Not sure what made him break last time, but he went into a wild gallop on the backstretch right after clearing to the lead.  Has proven that he can hold his own with top company prior.  Maybe. 

4

Sir Richard Z Tam

($35k HB yearling) Absolutely flying on the outside to nearly nail the fav last time, and I would expect another off the pace rally here from mid-pack post.  Must respect. 

5

My One Tru Desire

($13k HB yearling) Briefly took control down the lane in stakes action last week, but was unable to fend off his rivals in deep stretch.  Continues to improve since adding lasix, but still asking quite a bit against these. 

6

Johny Rock

($60k Lex yearling) Got caught first over against the heavy fav last week, and still dug in fairly well to hit the board down the lane.  Maybe a bit softer spot here, still needs his very best.  Finished 1-2 in 8 of 9 now. 

7

Beach Memories

($70k HB yearling)  Followed #6 up perfectly last week, but didn’t pack enough punch to hang with the top colts down the lane.  It doesn’t appear things will get any easier here. 

8

Jones Beach

($50k Lex yearling) Saved ground to finish up an even 5th last week, and still appears to be a notch or two below the favs in here as well.  I’ll wait for a better spot.
