Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, August 30th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                              1-2-3

1

Ohmybelle

Came first over and went by #2 fairly easily to win the opening leg, and is now 8 for 9 in her brief career.  Should be interesting to see how things set up here in leg 2.  No question she is the one to beat. 

2

Diligent Prospect

Got away without any pressure for the majority of the mile last time on the lead, but couldn’t fend off #1 late.  Not a bad try, and any similar effort puts her squarely in the mix once again. 

3

So Nice

A perfect scenario for her 1st LT start, she sat on #2’s back the entire way and sprinted home late to finish up a game 3rd.  She should continue to improve in only her 2nd career start.  More aggressive try tonight? 

4

KZ Beach Girl

Finished 4th as the odds on favorite last time, but I wouldn’t be too hard on her after sitting last through a pretty soft ¾’s of a mile.  Sprinted home right with the pack.  Maybe. 

5

Caribbean Treasure

Not sure she is on the same level as her rivals to the inside, but she finished up with a nice even effort last time as well to be 5th.  Things won’t get any easier here though. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                              8-5-1-2

1

Kijafa

Came first over against the eventual winner who is an extremely nice filly, and still managed to hang on for a nice 2nd.  Picks up the services of PW tonight as well, should continue to improve in her 3rd career try. 

2

Dana Boko

Couldn’t hold off the closers last time after an aggressive move to the top, but this filly has yet to miss the board in 3 LT tries including 2 against stakes company.  Maybe a touch easier spot tonight as well.  

3

Expressive Victor

Added hobbles for her last try and she managed to pick up a decent 3rd.  No question she should continue to improve, but I’m not sure she packs the speed to hang with the top ones in here just yet. 

4

Classact Volo

Made a break in her only local appearance after the filly inside of her made a break behind the gate as well.  I’ll have to watch her put in a clean effort before jumping on board. 

5

Dewey Lane

Made a break and lost a ton of ground, yet incredibly got back down to wind up only a couple of lengths off the lead around the far turn.  All that took it’s toll late for a distant 4th place finish.  Will she stay flat here? 

6

MarysMaster

Still doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top ones.  Pass. 

7

Reve Encore Dream

Made a break as a big longshot last time, and likely retains longshot status here.  Pass. 

8

Delmot

The pressure is on after making a break in the opening leg, she would need a nice finish here to ensure a spot in the final.  Appears to have landed in a soft enough crew, and lands Tetrick as well.  I’ll take a shot. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                              1-7-6-3

1

Caveat Emptor

Had the benefit of a lot of breakers in his local debut, but he couldn’t have looked anymore impressive in a dominating score under no encouragement.  Lands on the pole once again.  Lots to like. 

2

Sharpshot Hall

Made a break while on the lead last time, and lands in quite the shark tank here.  I’ll pass for now. 

3

Swiss Alps

A nice even effort in the 1st start of his career, but he hooks an overly tough group here in his 2nd KYSS try.  Would have to pick it up quite a bit to go with these. 

4

Alfredo Dream

Hooked a couple of very nice colts in that last one, and ended up with an even 4th place finish.  Unfortunately, he hooks another tough group here as well!  Continues to improve with each start, needs his very best. 

5

Howdy Dewey

I was on board last time, and he failed to fire off what ended up being a nice trip.  It still was the fastest he has trotted in his life, maybe I was expecting a little too much.  Things won’t get any easier here though. 

6

Mystical Dew

Wow!  Undefeated colt raced a bit green last time but powered by for an easy win in the opening leg.  Probably already locked up a spot in the $250k final, how aggressive will TS be with him here? 

7

Here’s Johnny

Broke right after the start in the opening leg, and now Johnny is forced to be 1-2 tonight or he will likely not be hereeeeeee for the $250k final.  I’m expecting an aggressive attempt.  Should be close if he minds his manners. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                              2-6-5-1

1

Blue Diamonds

Had the benefit of a couple of breakers in the opening leg, but at the end of the day ended up an even 4th behind a top filly.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit to go with the favs in here. 

2

MaChere Hall

Added hobbles in the opening leg, and absolutely exploded away from her rivals when she shook loose about midway down the lane.  That was impressive!  I’m on board once again tonight. 

3

Right Away

Tired after an aggressive attempt from post 9 last time, I’m not sure if she’s ready to go with the top ones in here right away. 

4

Redur beautiful

Trotted evenly against a tough group, but appears to have landed in against another solid crew tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Mergatroid

Never got through into very late last time, and it probably cost her 2nd behind the runaway winner.  No question still a very nice try in her 2nd career start.  Should continue to improve. 

6

Simone Hall

Absolutely went to the front and romped in her local debut.  Granted, it wasn’t an overly tough group she faced there but she couldn’t have possibly looked any better. 

7

Don’tcheat onafilly

Tough trip last time, but she ended up throwing in the towel very early.  Would take a complete turnaround to compete with these. 

8

Doc’s Crystal

A decent even effort last time to be 5th, but moves from the pole to the far outside.  Looks like a tough spot for her here. 

Race 5                     Selections                              7-2-3-6

1

Zoli

Finally minded his manners in the AM after several attempts with hobbles.  Not sure he is ready for these.  Pass. 

2

Dewycolor intheline

Lands back in against his main rival #7, who beat him in the opening leg.  I am sure Schnittker will be putting him in play early once again.  May end up sitting on #7’s back this time.  Can he turn the tables? 

3

Southwind Metallic

Impressive 3rd place finish last time, after being handled fairly conservatively handled after making breaks in his 2 prior starts.  Not sure he can beat the top two, but any similar effort should be good for a minor award. 

4

Blueridge Adiram

Overmatched against many of these same rivals last time, don’t see things getting any easier here. 

5

Glamrocker

Never in it after the early break last time, and doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these regardless. 

6

Alejandro Hall

Made a break early last time, but actually finished 5th after many of his rivals made breaks as well.  If he minds his manners, he could be a player for the minor awards in here as well. 

7

Banco Solo

I am well aware he had a nice trip behind #2 last time, but he glided by him with ease down the lane and I was over impressed.  I’m not sure we have seen anywhere near his best yet.  Banking on another big effort tonight. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                              3-6-2-5                    Pick 4 starts here                  See ticket at the end

1

Doriun

Raced evenly against similar company at Springfield, but was scratched sick from her last in Chi-town.  An absolutely WIDE open race to kick off tonight’s Pick 4!  Your call. 

2

Perfect Truth

Showed some sneaky late pace in the last one to finish up 5th and this filly continues to improve with each and every start.  Truthfully, she can go with anything in here.  Maybe. 

3

Real Impressive

Where did that last effort come from?  Filly is 0 for 20 in her career, but she came up only a neck short of pulling off a major 44-1 shocker last time!  Anything close to that puts her in the mix once again. 

4

Ellie’s Best Dream

Faded badly against some tough company in Indy last time, but her first start there wasn’t bad at all.  She lands in what appears to be a comfortable spot in only her 3rd career start.  Any improvement puts her in the game. 

5

Jack N Water

Launched a first over attack against the eventual winner last time, and ended up tiring a bit late to finish up a close 5th.  Another that could make some noise with any smoother journey. 

6

Real Party

Another that had some sneaky late pace last time, and I have no doubt that if she is worked into the race sooner that she could crash the party and win it.  Again, it’s WIDE open. 

7

Tundra

No threat in his only local try.  Retains longshot status.  Pass. 

8

Fudge Brownie

One of those sounds good about now… Lightly raced 7yo has held his own on IL fair circuit, but I’ll make him prove it here on the big track before hopping on board. 

9

Indy Shooter

A nice local Q’fer for top connections, but TS is going to have to find a way to work him into the race from way out here.  Won’t be easy, but he certainly fits with these. 

10

Billtown Road

Was offstride far behind the gate as the heavy fav last time, and now the question is how aggressive will Loney be after that from post 10?  My guess is….  Not very. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                              4-6-8-2

1

Loveswept

Added lasix for her stakes try, but appeared to be overmatched in that spot.  Still needs to find a way to find some more stamina before I’m falling in love.  Noble opted to #4 instead.    

2

Victoria Valley

Ended up with an absolute perfect trip following the eventual winner last time, and parlayed that into a decent 3rd place finish.  Should sit much closer from inside post.  Your call. 

3

Fort Riley

Hasn’t been able to hold the fort down locally.  Pass. 

4

B Q Bull

Liked the Bull last time and he made a break while moving.  Barn has been on quite a roll recently.  I suppose I will give him one more try here before looking elsewhere.  Price should be okay. 

5

Blueridge Classic

Hasn’t been anywhere close recently.  Pass. 

6

Duck Crossing

Saved ground en route to a 6th place finish last time, but that was a decent effort against a solid group of stakes fillies.  Lands in a much more comfortable spot here, but likely to be overbet off that. 

7

Tickle Me Grace

Fired out for an unpressured lead last time as the fav, but couldn’t get the job done and faded to 4th late.  I’m not convinced she does her best work on the lead.  I would expect an off the pace rally again here.  Maybe. 

8

Klassic Kanidate

Held 3rd after following a heavy fav last time, and I was fairly impressed with that try.  Yet to win this year, but she has hit the board in 9 of 11.  No question Kravchak should put her in play early once again. 

9

Marisela

Offstride far behind the gate in her last attempt, and I’m not sure what to think now.  She has the ability to go with these on her best day, but just doesn’t appear to be heading in the right direction. 

10

Southwind Tufts

Has endured some breaking problems throughout his brief career, and gets slammed with post 10 as well.  I’ll watch one first. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                              1-9-3-4

1

Blueridge Hall

Barn has been heating up recently, but this guy tired badly after making an aggressive first over move in his last.  Drops into our bottom condition once again and lands on the pole.  That could help him turn things around. 

2

Docdor Harvey

The docdor wasn’t prescribed a very good trip in his local debut, and we essentially learned absolutely nothing from that mile.  I’ll watch another one first. 

3

It’s Fun

Followed the eventual winner last week, and the mare that beat her came back to win again.  No question she fits with these, but with a short price looming I may look elsewhere. 

4

Boodro

Closed from last to finish 3rd last time, but was far behind #3 in that one.  Should be sitting much closer from mid-pack post tonight, and should continue to improve in his 4th start back on the year. 

5

Bad Girlfriend

Hasn’t had anything to offer late after getting caught up in a couple of big miles recently.  Should be better spotted here, but would still need to pick it up quite a bit. 

6

By the Sea Sally

No punch on the end of it last time, needs a lot more.  Pass. 

7

Scootnick Bodeen

An even effort to finish up 5th last time, but quite honestly I was expecting a bit more after he sat in the back and had a nice pace to close into.  Appears to be a softer crew tonight though.  Your call.  Stiltner opted to #9. 

8

Misconception

Never fired last time.  I’ll pass for now. 

9

Beach Bandit

Only beaten 4 lengths last time against a fairly solid group.  Keep in mind he had been on the shelf a long time prior to this year.  Might finally be getting back into shape.  I can make a case.  Stiltner opted here over #7.   

10

West Coast Arturo

Lands on the outside here, but is making her first appearance in our bottom condition.  She certainly has enough early speed to overcome the post if Jerrell elects to step on the gas.  Maybe. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                              7-5-2-8

1

RocknRoll Fever

Had a perfect trip after appearing to have the field over a barrel last time and never fired whatsoever.  Only 1 for 34 last 2 years.  I wasn’t impressed, and am certainly not coming back at another short price here. 

2

Defying Gravity

Dominated in a much softer spot last time in Cleveland, and may come back down to earth here against a solid group of overnight company.  Will need his very best.  Smith opted here over #5.   

3

Sempre Ribera

Hasn’t had a lot to offer after some ground saving journeys in his last several tries, and things aren’t going to get any easier against these.  Pass. 

4

Primrose Path

Wasn’t able to keep up with the top pack last time, and lands in a similar group here.  Not tonight. 

5

E R Prince Charmin

Appeared to be home free last time, only to get nailed in the last strides.  Still not a bad effort, and KB will have plenty of options from mid-pack post.  Maybe.  Smith opted to #2 instead.    

6

Mor Storms Coming

Hasn’t been able to hang with the $2.5k claimers, and hooks a solid crew in conditioned company tonight. 

7

Sexy Smile

Got caught in the back in the FFA only to be hopelessly pinned in down the lane, and lands in against mainly boys here in mid-level overnight company.  Has a ton of early speed if Kravchak elects to use it.  She fits with these, no reason she couldn’t win it.    

8

Blue Punch

Didn’t fire after getting parked every step last time, and takes a slight drop into what should be an easier crew here.  Still needs his very best punch.  Noble opted to #10 instead.   

9

King’s Lightning

Rallied from the back last time to finish 4th, and that appears to be how things will set up once again from post 9 here.  I’ll wait until he lands in a better spot. 

10

Dugan Run Dream

Raced evenly against similar company on Sunday, and now gets slammed with post 10 in a competitive crew.   Doesn’t appear to have a lot of early speed, and will likely have to do it from last.  Noble opted here over #8.   

 

Race 10                   Selections                              8-3-6-2

1

Homestake

Worked in a start at Balmoral in between legs where he raced evenly, but I must say I was disappointed with his local try when he didn’t fire as the fav off an absolutely perfect trip 2 back.  I can’t endorse after that. 

2

A List

Battled the eventual winner after being left first over last time, before fading and finishing 5th.  Nothing wrong with that mile, but hooks a tough group in full 11 horse field.  Needs his very best.  DN opted here over #5.   

3

Derby Dylan

Dylan just keeps getting better and better with each start.  He nearly pulled off the 68-1 upset last time, and he has a wicked late kick.  I’m still not sure we’ve seen his best yet.  I’m on board. 

4

Nutmegs Maya

Finished up a close 3rd in the opening leg, but I wasn’t overly impressed with the effort that night.  Things aren’t going to get any easier in full field here. 

5

Kenzie’s Beach Boy

Aggressively handled with an early challenge to the leader from the pocket, only to be outpaced down the lane in the opening leg.  Not sure he is on the same level as the favs in here.  Noble opted to #2 instead.   

6

Duel in the Sun

A solid local debut to finish up 2nd behind #8, and he is yet to miss the board in 5 LT starts.  I would expect PW to put him in play early once again.  Big shot.    

7

Jude Hall

Well timed move to the top for the lone Southwind Lynx colt in the group, as he was able to fend off his rivals late for the win.  Not sure things are going to work out that perfectly here, but he certainly fits. 

8

Blatantly Best

Absolutely blasted by #6 in deep stretch for an easy win, as he unleashed a sizzling final quarter to get the job done in hand.  Still undefeated in 3 career starts.  Must respect.  Miller opted here over #1.   

9

Talk It Up

Raced much better than I could’ve ever expected to finish up 3rd behind a couple of nice colts in opening leg.  Certainly has hit work cut out though after drawing post 9 in field of 11.  I’ll pass. 

10

Summons

Lands on the far outside of an overly tough crew.  Not tonight.  Tetrick opted to #3 instead.   

11

Soda Pop

Not sure what happened last time, but he couldn’t keep up with the top colts in there.  I do think he is better than that, but still a tough task to make any major noise against a solid crew tonight. 

 

 

Race 11                   Selections                              8-2-1-6   

1

Little Bitty Lies

Finished up a solid 2nd to #8 last time, but I’m not gonna lie… She’d still have to pick it up quite a bit to challenge for the win. 

2

Andie Sophia

Couldn’t have possibly looked any better in her career debut in the opening leg, as she sprinted away from her rivals under little asking.  A LOT of talent here, but is she seasoned enough to beat #8 right now?    

3

Caneel Hall

Saved ground to pick up 2nd last time as the fav, and appears to have landed in an even tougher group here.  I’ll try her underneath only against these. 

4

V Six

Ended up a distant 2nd in the opening leg, but would have to pick things up quite a bit to hang with this crew. 

5

Runway Beauty

Trotted evenly in her career debut, but doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top ones in this group just yet.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Wrenn opted to #2 instead.    

6

Fanfan Dream

Continues to improve with each start, and parlayed a perfect trip behind the eventual winner into a 3rd place finish last time.  The problem is she draws in against the 2 that beat her and some others here.  Needs even more. 

7

Paris Hall

Finished up far behind #2 last time, and hooks an even tougher group here.  Pass. 

8

True Day Dream

Simply strolled around the track to pick up her 4th consecutive victory, and there is no question O’Mara will be pointed to the lead once again.  She’s the one to beat again!   

9

Déjà Vu Too

Offstride far behind the gate in her local debut, for a filly that has suffered several breaking problems throughout her brief career.  Slammed with post 9 in a tough group as well.  Not a good recipe. 

 

Race 12                   Selections                              1-4-8-7

1

Voodoo Victor

Never fired in a very tough spot from post 9 last time, but lands on the pole in what appears to be a much more comfortable group here.  Picks up the services of Tetrick as well.  Barn been on a roll.  Live longshot?  Yes. 

2

Tornado

Didn’t race badly in his career debut, but keep in mind there were several breakers in the field which certainly aided his 3rd place finish.  Should continue to improve here in his 2nd LT try.  Maybe. 

3

Il Pizzaiolo

Regally bred colt finished up with an even 4th place finish in his local debut, and that certainly was a step in the right direction.  Not an overly tough group here, any further improvement puts him right in the mix. 

4

Penn

Finished up 3rd behind a couple of extremely nice colts last time, and hooks a much softer group tonight than he faced in that one.  Any similar effort puts him very close.  Christensen opted to #6 instead.       

5

Royaltyn Howe

Never in it after an early break last time, I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

6

Dewey Luvs Britt

Couldn’t keep up with the fav last time but still managed to hold 2nd.  There were several breakers in the field though which helped his cause.  He may be overbet after that as well.  I’ll look elsewhere.  BC chose over #4.    

7

Held in Balance

Came first over from way back in the opening leg, and he actually didn’t race badly at all given how tough the group was that he faced.  Any smoother journey could land him on the ticket at a nice price. 

8

Deweytrot andhowe

Really rounded the corner with a solid 2nd place finish behind the fav last time as a 40-1 outsider.  Won’t be anywhere near that price tonight, but a similar effort should put him close once again. 

 

Race 13                   Selections                              9-4-3-7

1

Moma Jean’s Crown

Added lasix last time but that didn’t appear to resolve the stamina issues.  I’ll pass for now. 

2

Holligram

Another that has had some severe stamina problems recently.  Not tonight. 

3

Perfect Beauty

Tired late in the $15k KYSS, but lands in a much more comfortable spot tonight.  Should sit close once again, and appears to have a big shot against these. 

4

Herculotte Hanover

Well bred 2yo took a Q’fer at Scioto last time on an off track, and this could be a prep for the Kindergarten Series that begins here in September.  Appears to have some talent if she minds her manners. 

5

Coyote’s Dream Queen

Tired late against similar company last time, would need a lot more here.  Pass. 

6

VR’s Space shuttle

Recent additions of hobbles and lasix appeared to help things out for a 2nd place finish at Duquoin, but she would still need to pick it up quite a bit to hang with the top ones in here. 

7

Lil Miss Brinley

I must admit that I dismissed this filly without giving her a 2nd look on Sunday, and she came charging on the end of it to finish up a very close 2nd.  Not sure where that came from, but I liked what I saw. 

8

Total Enjoyment

Q’fed evenly behind #9, but it’s asking a lot for the lightly raced filly to be able to go with these in her first start off the shelf and only her 2nd start of the season.  I’ll watch one first. 

9

Mrs Mrs Jones

Local Q’fer was solid, and anything similar to those east coast starts at The Big M would make her the best in here.  No question Tetrick will have to spring forward off the gate from post 9.  Must respect. 

10

Leanto Scarlet

Made a break in her latest attempt, and will likely be under conservative handling from post 10.  Not sure I like how things set up for her here against a decent group.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 14                   Selections                              7-5-4-1-10                               10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE

1

Keystone Nite Hawk

Debuts for the 3rd different barn for the 3rd straight start.  Looked super 2 starts back, but didn’t look to be the same horse last time.  Which Nite Hawk shows up here?  Good question.  Smith opted to #4 instead.    

2

Jaxx

Tired late to finish a distant 3rd after getting caught up in a quick early pace last time.  Probably the toughest crew he has faced since arriving locally though.  Needs his very best.  Smith opted to #4 instead.      

3

Blazing Tower

I gave him a try last time, and went down in blazes after he didn’t have much to offer against similar company.  I can’t endorse him back after that. 

4

Big City

Perfectly driven last time, and parlayed that into a nice win in a LT best.  Should sit close once again, but hooks a solid crew tonight in the final.  Your call.  Smith opted here over #’s 1 & 2.     

5

Little Water Tower

Rallied to finish up a nice 3rd behind #4 last time at a big number.  Not quite sure he will get that kind of pace to chase again in here, but it is certainly possible I suppose.  Barn has been on a roll! 

6

Paul T

Finally turned things around a bit with a solid 2nd behind #7 last time, but would have to pick it up even more to collect even a minor award in the ultra competitive group he’s landed in tonight. 

7

Fox Valley Michael

Absolutely dominated with a nearly 9 length romp against similar company in what was his first solid start since arriving locally.  If he is anywhere near that good again, it’s going to be a long night for the rest of these. 

8

All is Saidand done

Faded after a nice trip last time, and I’m not sure he is ready to hang with the top ones in here either.  Pass for now. 

9

Fortune Road

He is Un-fortunate in landing post 9, especially against this crew.  Not tonight. 

10

Heart’s Prince

Has really rounded into form since arriving locally, but has his work cut out for him in against a solid group from way out here.  He will be blasting early.  Catch him if you can.
