Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, September 2nd

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                6-5-1-4

1

Hopenpromises

Appeared to have plenty of hope and promise when she began her career, but now arrives off a dull effort in $30k IL stake and a scratched ‘sick’ prior.  Lands in a comfortable spot though. 

2

Misspanderosa jones

Faded after getting away close last time, and I’ll wait until we see some improvement before hopping on board. 

3

O You Foxy Thing

Arrives in town after a so-so Q’fer in Indy, and it’s been over 2 months since she made her career debut.  Not sure what happened in between, but asking quite a bit to have her ready to roll off the break. 

4

It’s True

Raced evenly last time, but keep in mind that she had to leave the track for 5 mins before the race after she fell on the track and broke her harness.  Hard to expect her to fire after all that.  Looks wide open.  Maybe. 

5

Scootin Keefe

Posted back to back wins on the OH fair circuit, and doesn’t appear to have landed in an overly tough group here tonight.  I will take a shot with her underneath. 

6

Full Service

No luck at all on the off track last time in Chi-town, but flashed some talent in her prior efforts there.  If well bred filly fires anywhere close to her best shot, she should be able to handle these. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-6-5-2

1

Muncie

Fired with a nice front end effort last time, and this guy appears to be really rounding the corner and headed in the right direction.  That was an OH stakes colt that got by him that night as well.  Must respect.    

2

No Need for Brakes

Not sure what happened in the OH fair last time, but this guy was ok on our own fair circuit throughout the summer.  Not sure if he can go with the favs just yet, but should sit close from inside post.  TS opted to #1.    

3

Lifetime Mattjic

Has been average on the big tracks in Indy thus far, and would have to pick it up quite a bit to go with the top ones in here.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Smith opted to #1 instead.    

4

River Canyon

Endured a tough first over grind to finish 3rd here a few weeks ago on the off track, but keep in mind that was only a 4 horse field.  Not sure why he has gone missing since.  Not ready to hop on board just yet. 

5

Ballistic Tip

Held his own against some decent overnight company in Chicago, but will likely be a short price in his local debut.  No question he fits with these, but I will look for some value elsewhere. 

6

Argon Fire

Aggressively handled against similar company last time, and dug in for the neck victory late at odds of 11-1.  Continues to improve with each start, any similar effort puts him close once again. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                5-3-9-1

1

Alluring Art

Closed from the clouds last time to sprint away for her first career victory.  Lands on the pole tonight in a fairly wide open crew, but I’m not sure if things will set up that perfectly this time. 

2

Art’s Chance

Took plenty of tote action last time, but didn’t have anything to offer late after a picture perfect journey.  Not sure I can endorse him after seeing that one. 

3

Already Spent

This lass has been hopelessly pinned in now in 2 consecutive starts, and she flew home after finally shaking loose last time.  If she can get a smooth journey, I think she might have a big shot as an upsetter. 

4

Milburn

Really turned things around last time to finish up closely against a similar crew.  Any further improvement should put him close once again.  Your call.  Smith opted to #5 instead. 

5

Margarita Monday

Would you believe me if I told you she was a FULL sister to World Champ, Bolt The Duer?  Not on the same level as her brother obviously, but it’s now or never for this mare!  Smith opted here over #4.    

6

Request to Win

Has held her own on the OH fair circuit, but it doesn’t appear that she was facing very tough company there.  Request denied. 

7

Show Me Some Skin

Didn’t have to move until very late last time, and still couldn’t manage to hang in there for a piece of it late.  Things aren’t going to get any easier here, and I’m off the bandwagon until we see her show more than skin. 

8

Looksgood onu

Lone 2yo in the field taking on an older group tonight from post 8, not sure if I like that scenario. 

9

Goodtimin Cam

Continued to show even further improvement last time, sprinting home in 27 and change to finish up an even 4th.  He has some speed if Shehan elects to use it, and I suspect we will see him take a shot early.  Maybe. 

10

Mystic Rose

First time starter slammed with post 10 in what appears to be a tough spot for her debut.  I’ll watch one.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                1-9-6-8

1

Sterling Volo

Added lasix two back, and she is probably just a touch below some of the top fillies on the east coast.  Having said that, she finds major class relief here and looks primed for a huge wakeup call.  Must respect. 

2

Roscoes Rib Rack

Roscoe has been BBQ’d in 3 local starts against similar company, and I don’t see things getting any easier here.  I’ll wait until we see some signs of improvement.  Loney opted to #9 instead.    

3

Just Plain Jesse

We’ve seen some MI invaders have some success here already, and Jesse ships in to debut for a live barn as well.  May fly under the radar a bit, and could have a shot to hit the ticket at a price. 

4

Manaloha

Continues to improve with each local start, but lands in what will be toughest group he has faced to this point.  Would take a lot more to trot with these. 

5

Long’s Sunshine

Hasn’t had any luck since arriving locally, and this spot has come up extremely difficult for this level.  Not tonight. 

6

Allgrownup

Had a perfect ride behind the fav and eventual winner last time, and ended up holding on for a 3rd place finish.  Not a bad effort, but she hooks another solid filly here. 

7

Moreagio

Appears overmatched against these.  Pass. 

8

Floating Ivy

Has really rounded into form over the last few starts, and managed to hit the board in those last couple at Indy even after enduring some tough trips.  Any smooth journey should put him in play for the minor awards. 

9

Rock With It

Very impressed by this guy in his 2nd start with lasix off the break last time, as he ended up sprinting by #6 late to pick up the place spot.  Should continue to improve, Loney will have to work him in it from way out here. 

10

Massasauga

Looks like a tough spot for his 2012 debut.  Slammed with post 10 as well.  Not a good recipe. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                3-5-2-6

1

Blazing Tower

Hasn’t had a lot of stamina at this level recently, but should benefit from landing on the pole in the small field.  Still would have to find a lot more to hang with these. 

2

Blueridge Hall

Tried to go down the road here on Thursday, and nearly lasted before tiring to finish 3rd.  Appears to be a fairly wide open crew here in small field.  Must respect. 

3

Paul T

Hung in for along way in the mini-series final after coming first over Thursday, and appears to be rounding into form for team Anthrop.  I can make a case here. 

4

Broadway Fame

Had a nice start to the meet, but has had some stamina issues after getting caught up in some big miles in those last couple.  Lands in a WIDE open group here, but needs his very best.  Stiltner opted to #5 instead.     

5

Hezasonof eclipse

Finally turned things around last time to close well and finish up 2nd behind a heavy fav.  Should be sitting much closer tonight in small field, and appears to be heading in the right direction.  Stiltner opted here over #4.    

6

Mor Than Enuff Russ

Ended up 3rd right behind #5 last time, and has held his own at this level.  Absolutely wide open group he lands in tonight, demand value with whomever you choose. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                1-9-4                       $5,000 Guaranteed Pick 4 Starts Here  See ticket at the end

1

Supreme Day

The Queen of the KY Fairs this season in the trotting ranks, who suffered her only career defeat out here in the $10k final.  Wasn’t eligible for the KYSS.  Lands in a nice spot as she is looking for her 9th win on the year. 

2

Fort Riley

Hasn’t been able to keep up with similar.  Pass. 

3

Whats the Plot

OH fair invader shows several breaks and doesn’t appear to have been facing all that tough of company up there this season.  I’ll watch her go around the big track once first. 

4

Kentucky Freeze

Filly barely dug in as my lock of the night last time, but HL really never asked her at all until the final strides when he realized it was going to be close after all.  I would expect her to sit close to the lead once again. 

5

Iamalucky lucky Man

Another that is hard to gage off his IL fair starts, but I’ll have to watch him tour the oval once before endorsing regardless of how lucky he is. 

6

Ranggo Kid

Flashed a little late trot last time to finish up a close 4th behind #4, but he is still looking for his first on the board finish in his career.  Probably the easiest field he has seen thus far in his career tonight though.  

7

CG’s Rock Star

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these just yet.  Pass. 

8

JP That Big George

Hasn’t had much stamina to offer in the AM, and I’ll watch him go around in his career debut before hopping on board.  Loney opted to #1 instead.    

9

MJ’s Wings Away

Solid 2nd place finish behind a runaway winner and heavy fav last time, and I am sure TS will be looking to leave for position from post 9.  Should sit close once again. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                1-7-9-10

1

Theprincess deals

Sat far off the lead last time, and actually finished up with a little pace compared to her first local try.  Makes her 3rd start off the brief layoff here, and the princess sports a 10 for 24 record on the year.  Should improve. 

2

West Coast Arturo

Hasn’t had much luck at this level locally, and appears to have hooked another solid group here.  Not tonight. 

3

Willing Heart

Parked every step and never got worked into the min-series final last time, but was very sharp when she was put in play in the start prior.  Tyler Smith opted to #1 instead.   

4

Hoosier GB Diamond

Tried to go down the road last week, only to tire late and finish 6th.  Faces many of those same rivals again tonight, and doesn’t appear that things will be any easier for her.  Pass. 

5

Shesgot whteveritis

Chi-town invader is 0 for 23 on the season, but she may pick it up a bit with the move back to the big track.  Price should be right, and barn has had some success here.  All positive signs. 

6

Yank My Rope

Added lasix in the AM, and that could certainly help her moving forward.  She was just a touch below the top mares at this level in the first go around, so I’ll watch closely for any improvement.  Smith opted to #1 instead.    

7

JB’s Cutie

Appeared to be buried on the rail turning for home last week, but she exploded when she was finally able to shake loose to score a neck victory.  That’s 2 in a row where she didn’t get out until very late.  I would expect her to be out in the flow from post 7, and she may really rock if she gets clear sailing sooner.  Must respect. 

8

Baby Blue Pajamas

Parlayed a perfect trip into a 2nd place finish in conditioned company last time, and that was a solid improvement over what we had seen locally thus far.  One of several with a chance in big bulky field.  JN opted to #7 instead.   

9

My Surfer Girl

If #7 was buried last time, than this mare was double buried.  Looked like she was never going to have room but she found some and was FLYING up the inside.  No question she fits with these. 

10

Thank You Mamma

Slammed with post 10 in full field, but this mare got the job done against a solid field of males the last time we saw her in town.  No question Whisman will have to move forward off the gate, it won’t be easy though. 

11

Twinklefire two

Yet to fire in 2 local starts, and retains longshot status from the 2nd tier.  Pass. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                4-1-6-2

1

Wesley Gayle

Appears to have landed in a much softer spot than last time, and filly should continue to improve in her 5th career try.  No reason why she shouldn’t get away very close from inside post.  Must respect. 

2

Kacy’s Photo

Was hanging in there before making a break in her lasix debut last week, and it certainly appears that she may be improving.  However, still asking quite a bit for her to go with these at this point. 

3

JohnJohn Hilltopper

Came up empty in his first couple of local tries, would take a complete turnaround against these. 

4

Richesse Oblige

Made a break in the $190k stake last time in Indy, but she beat a decent crew of older horses in the local start prior.  Appears to be the one to beat if she minds her manners.  Smith opted here over #’s 2 & 10.   

5

Maxaman

No question this guy has the ability to go with these, but he likes to make breaks from time to time.  Not a bad try for what was essentially his first start on the year last time, should continue to improve if he trots. 

6

I Am the King

The King has hit the board in 8 of 11 on the IL fair circuit, and should continue to improve with the move to the big track.  Price should be right as well, I may take a shot with him underneath. 

7

Buy Me Emeralds

Doesn’t appear to be ready to go with these just yet.  Pass. 

8

Blueridge Elisa

Was well beaten by #4 2 starts back, and appears to be overmatched once again. 

9

Winky’s Truffle

Trotted evenly in her career debut, but lands in post 9 against another solid crew here and I would expect another off the pace try from far back.  Not yet. 

10

Double Dip

Finished far back in the only Q’fer she didn’t make a break, doesn’t appear ready for these.  Pass.

 

Race 9                     Selections                                8-4-9-6

1

Singlemalt whiskey

Outpaced against similar company last time.  Pass. 

2

Lighting Reno

Never in it in his last few tries, and looks to have landed in tough once again.  Not tonight.  Jerrell opted to #5 instead.    

3

Fox Valley Blitzen

Handled aggressively last time at this level, but ended up tiring badly late to finish far back.  No question he is better than that, but I’ll wait until we see some signs of life before hopping on board. 

4

Cruise to Fame

A perfect tightner off the nearly 3 month layoff last time, as he closed nicely on the end of it after sitting last early to finish 4th.  Barn has been on an absolute roll.  Can’t ignore. 

5

Sailors Sky

Showed a lot of improvement last time as well by closing from far back to finish 4th behind a heavy fav.  Lands in a perfect mid-pack post and should be able to work out a nice cover trip.  Maybe.  RJ opted here over #2.    

6

Hawaiian Alibi

Added lasix as soon as he arrived, and now removed it again in the AM.  Connections still obviously tinkering with him, and we’ll see if he fires with a better performance here. 

7

SBD First Blood

Aggressively driven from post 10 in his 2nd local try, but even though he improved tremendously off that first try he still didn’t have a lot to offer late after finding clearance.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit. 

8

Paradise Ragtime

Takes another drop in class tonight after nearly going down the road last time through some quick fractions.  Ended up finishing 4th behind a solid trio, and looks like a perfect spot for him to pop one off. 

9

Whersme luckycharms

A big improvement from his first local try last time, after he was aggressively handled from post 9.  Lands in an outside post once again, but any similar effort should put him squarely in the mix. 

10

Princess Wendy

Added the hobbles back after a couple of breaks, but she didn’t have much pace from the pole against a similar crew.  Now moves to the far outside.  Not a good scenario.

Race 10                   Selections                                8-2-4-7

1

Rodin

Was overmatched against some nice colts in $15k KYSS, and now drops into a spot that should be much better for him tonight.  Lands on the pole as well, and should sit close.  Maybe.  Bolon opted here over #4.    

2

Her Misconduct

Raced evenly at this level over her last several starts, and now dodges many of her main rivals tonight.  Appears to be well spotted and lands in a nice inside starting slot.  Must respect. 

3

Jazzie Music

Chased the blazing early pace last time, and managed to finish up a close 3rd with broken equipment.  Should continue to improve in her 3rd start with lasix tonight. 

4

Momspacific flight

Steps up a notch after racing well in her only 2 local appearances, but appears to have landed in against a bit tougher crew tonight.  I’m sure Bolon will have her close to the lead, but she will need even more. 

5

The Hit Lady

I believe she was going to be 3rd last week, but the 2 horses outside of her hooked wheels which made her win by default.  Steps up another level here, and not sure I can endorse her against these. 

6

Doc’s Coco

Flashed a ton of early speed in her last, only to be mowed down late and have to settle for 2nd.  A lot of early speed in this one, so not sure she will be able to get away with that here.  Needs her very best. 

7

Lady Cambest

Hasn’t had a lot of success taking on similar company here thus far, but she should continue to improve in what is her 4th start back off an extended layoff.  Your call. 

8

Jena Mac Love

Parlayed a couple of perfect trips into close finishes in her first 2 local starts, and probably lands in an even softer spot tonight.  No question she fits with these on her best night. 

9

Blue By U

Tired badly in her only local try, and lands back in post 9 once again.  Not for me. 

10

Sir Johnny Colt

Beat #5 off a perfect trip here 3 starts back, but Johnny has his work cut out from way out here.  I’ll pass. 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                1-2-5-7-10                               10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE

1

Diannas May Day

Takes a substantial plunge in class to our bottom condition for mares, after holding her own against much better thus far.  Lands on the pole as well.  Lots to like. 

2

Trishie Mae

No chance last time after getting parked every single step of the mile, but she could certainly go with these with a smooth journey on her best day.  Should sit close. 

3

Pocket Belle

13yo mare drops into our bottom condition after not having much success in the claiming ranks this year.  Not an overly tough crew here, but she would still need to pick it up quite a bit. 

4

GD Rosanne

Yet to hit the board in 13 tries, and doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these.  Pass. 

5

Georgian Jiffyjane

She will win the best dressed award with her pink equipment, and she finally showed a bit of life last time after finishing up an even 4th.  Any similar effort puts her in the mix once again. 

6

Shirleybaerg

Has had some severe stamina issues since arriving locally.  Pass. 

7

Scootin in Secret

Raced evenly in her first local try after facing decent company up in Toledo.  That was a solid effort, and any further improvement would give her a chance to hit the ticket. 

8

Scenic Bay

Raced much better last time, but still going to have to find a way to hang around late. 

9

Miss Kelley Lynne

Outsprinted in her first local try, and things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Has shown some ability in the past, but hard to endorse her after the last one. 

10

It’s Fun

Wore down the leaders with a game first over score here on Thursday, and draws back in against a similar crew but gets slammed with post 10.  Not sure things will set up well from way out here.
