Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, August 9th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                3-6-4-5

1

River Canyon

A couple of even efforts on the OH fair circuit, but would really have to pick things up to be close here.  I’ll watch one first. 

2

Muncie

Showed some improvement with a nice runner up finish down in Paducah last time, but is another that would need to find a lot more speed to go with the top ones in here.  I’ll pass against these. 

3

Sadies Art

Has been consistent on the IL fair circuit with the exception of one break.  Shows a Q’fying win at Hoosier in 2:00.4 to begin his career.  Should pick up with the return to the big track.  I’ll take a shot. 

4

Big Man Clyde

Clyde was great in the AM to begin his career, but has stopped badly in both of his tries under the lights.  Appears to have found an easier spot, but still going to have to find some stamina

5

Mortal Combat

They obviously thought this guy had some talent if they dropped him in a $28k stake in Chi-town to begin his career.  Still has lots to prove, we haven’t seen his finisher yet. 

6

Dancing in Terror

Certainly improved in the local Q’fer, and appears to be all set for his first LT start tonight.  Probably going to have to do it from last though, I’ll take a shot to beat him at a short price. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                5-1-6-4

1

Rapids N Currents

You can see this guy went off at 5-2 going for $250k here last year, and ended up tiring to finish 4th.  Only his 3rd start back of the year, and should continue to improve.  Barn got beat on a couple of short prices here Sunday though, so I’ll take a shot to beat him here at short odds.    

2

Youknowwhat I like

Held his own against overnight company at Bluegrass, but faces a much tougher crew in his first local start.  I like the price, but not sure I can endorse him in this spot. 

3

Moreagio

Didn’t have anything to offer in his first local start.  Pass. 

4

Say It’s True

Came up large 2 starts back in Columbus to spring an 11-1 upset, but followed that up with another break.  No question he can go a little when he minds his manners, but appears to be his own worst enemy. 

5

Big Cookie

The cookie has been off a couple of months, but I was impressed by her morning try here last Tuesday.  She also had some success here last year.  Barn was hitting on all cylinders opening night.  Lots to like. 

6

Dew Drop Dolly

You don’t see many 7yo’s with only 6 LT starts, but that’s what we have here.  Ended up putting together a decent run at Bluegrass.  Big step up here.  Maybe underneath.  

 

Race 3                     Selections                                4-5-3-1

1

Sir Johnny Colt

5yo is 0 for 25 LT, but lands in a comfortable spot for his local debut.  Not sure I can use him in the top spot given that record, but definitely a shot to hit the ticket. 

2

Perfect Truth

The truth is she picked up a win in her final start down in western Ky, and she appears to be improving in her freshman season.  Going to need even more here though. 

3

Wheelie Fast

30 career starts, never been 1st or 2nd…    Never?  You would have thought somewhere along the line he would have found a good spot.  Makes his 2nd start for new barn tonight.  Short price looming.  Only underneath. 

4

Southern Strong

Typically don’t like 2yo fillies in against older, but this filly is making her first career start after a nice even effort in her local Q’fer.  She has hooked several camera shy horses as well.  I’m on board. 

5

The Hit Lady

Made a big move in her first start off a long layoff, and held in there late to finish a decent 5th.  Should be tightened up and ready to go here.  Maybe. 

6

Electrician

Added lasix in the AM at Indy, but still didn’t seem to take care of his stamina problem.  Going to have to find a way to keep the electric on late.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

7

Jack N Water

That doesn’t sound like a very good combination.  This guy has been ‘ok’ on the IL fairs, but things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Not tonight. 

8

Towne Believer

Filly has completely stopped in her last couple of appearances in Indy.  Prior starts would at least make her competitive against these.  Almost a month off as well.  I’m not a believer just yet. 

9

Rollin Terror

Doesn’t appear to be ready to go with these just yet, and slammed with post 9 as well.  Pass.

 

Race 4                     Selections                                1-7-8-6

1

Viking Mia

Mia was holding her own against 8k claimers in Indy, before a couple of disappointing efforts in Toledo.  Hit the board in 20 of 44 last season, and lands in a nice spot for her local 2012 debut.  I can make a case here. 

2

Lucky Hoos.

This hoosier hasn’t had a lot of pop in his last several tries.  Pass. 

3

ClassaComer

11yo has made breaks in 2 of his last 3.  Not an overly tough group here, but hard for me to endorse off that. 

4

Super Scot

Hit the board in 9 of 10 starts on the season, including a win at Bluegrass over #5.  Still needs to prove he packs enough speed to go with these. 

5

Fort Worth

Didn’t have the greatest of trips here on Sunday, but he really tired badly down the lane.  Would take a complete turnaround to be close with these.  Pass. 

6

Manaloha

Saved ground throughout in his local debut, and lands in what appears to be a much easier spot with this crew.  Still going to have to find more speed, but this should be more to his liking. 

7

Main Street Hall

Nice Q’fying effort at Lebanon, but his guy is making his first start back after a 13 month vacation.  The horse that was 3rd in that Q’fer came out to race very well on opening night.  Take a long look here. 

8

Roscoes Rib Rack

Roscoe got BBQ’d in that local Q’fer, but don’t be too hard on him because that was a very nice trotter he was in against.  Lands in a very comfortable spot tonight.  Big shot. 

Race 5                     Selections                                7-8-9-1

1

Yank My Rope

Picked up a win here last year in 57, but hasn’t been that sharp in her last several.  I’ll wait and see if she shows some improvement with the return to the red clay. 

2

West Coast Arturo

Passed some very tired horses the other night to finish a distant 4th, but this mare has gotten good here in the past.  Takes a drop in for the $2.5k tag here against only mares.  Still going to need more. 

3

Tammy’s Hot Spot

Yet to hit the board in 6 starts this season.  Hard to endorse her against these. 

4

Scenic Bay

Has had some major stamina issues in her last few down at Bluegrass, would take a LOT more to go with these. 

5

Rainy Day Q

Raced evenly against lesser company at Bluegrass, but another that would have to find a lot more in what appears to be a much tougher spot tonight. 

6

Twinklefiretwo

Held her own at the $2k level in Paducah, and now finds herself in for the $2.5k tag for her local debut.  Barn has had some upsetters in the past, but looks like a tough spot for her as well. 

7

Georgian Jiffyjane

This mare will win the best dressed award with her pink gear, and she was lethal at this level last season.  Drops in for the tag from the F&M open in Paducah, should be ready to roll.  Big shot. 

8

My Surfer Girl

Likely to be a heavy favorite taking the drop from $5k claimers at Scioto into $2.5k here.  Made a break in her last appearance…  the drop certainly raises some red flags.  Is she worth the risk? 

9

JB’s Cutie

Barn was firing on opening night with the Columbus invaders, and this mare has held her own against similar at Scioto.  Slammed with the outside post, but should be close. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                6-2-5-9                    Start of $10,000 Guaranteed Pick 4      Carryover - $2,663

1

Southwind Metallic

2yo closed well in his 1st LT start to be 3rd, but followed that up with a break last time out.  Lands on the pole, and barn has had plenty of success here in the past.  Your call. 

2

Mystical Dew

Dominated in the AM, and picked up a win in his only prior start at Hoosier as well.  Hasn’t made any mistakes thus far, and continues to improve with each start.  Taking on older here, but no question he is the one to beat. 

3

Ranggo Kid

Lightly raced 3yo is yet to have much success.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

4

Leanto Scarlet

Scarlet put together a very nice resume last year, but has had mixed results while racing in Indy this season.  Might be a touch easier here, but still going to have to pick it up a bit.  Maybe. 

5

Blue Diamonds

East coast Q’fers look good for this 1st time starting filly, in what is ultimately a prep for the Kentucky Sires Stakes that get underway Aug 19th.  Should continue to improve. 

6

Tickle Me Grace

Interesting proposition here, 4yo mare taking on some youngsters that have bigger and better things coming up, and she shows Open lines at the IL fairs and at Bluegrass.  Should really pick up on the bigger track.  Live longshot?  I think so.   

7

Rose Run Oriana

Filly has been ok on ‘B’ level Sires Stakes in Indy.  Lands in against a competitive crew tonight, and will need her very best to go with these. 

8

Kacy’s Photo

Didn’t fire on opening night, and I’ll wait until we see some signs of improvement. 

9

Joyeux Dream

Finished 3rd in the fair here behind a couple of very nice 3yo colts.  Continues to improve with each start, and is a year older than many of his main rivals in this spot.  Maybe. 

10

Delmary

Has had some success against similar in Columbus, but slammed with post 10 tonight in her local debut.  Competitive group, but we can’t use them all.  

 

Race 7                     Selections                                1-5-4-2

1

Noah C

Has been facing some very tough company in Indy, and is taking a substantial drop in class tonight.  Should find that to his liking.  Has won here several times in the past. 

2

Duck Hook

Another that has had some success over this strip in the past, and has been holding his own in the claiming ranks in Columbus.  Appears to have hooked a couple of tough rivals tonight, but maybe underneath. 

3

Primrose Path

Mare shows a decent Q’fer 3 back at Balmoral, and followed it up with a couple of even efforts at the IL fairs.  I’ll take a look at one before endorsing her just yet. 

4

Jo Jo’s Circus

The circus always flies home down our long stretch, and got good here last season.  Going to need her very best tonight. 

5

Noble Thought

Changed barns 3 starts back, and has been firing on all cylinders since.  That being said, this is a lot different than taking on small fields at the OH fairs.  Short price looming. 

6

Baby Blue Pajamas

Yet another Red Mile veteran in this group, and this mare always shows up with solid efforts here as well.  Hasn’t been as sharp this season as she was a year ago though.  Your call. 

7

Ginnysdoodledandy

Held his own against overnight company in Paducah, but takes a slight step up in class tonight and hooks a tough group for this level.  I’ll watch one first. 

8

Lavish Badlands

Another that was competitive against slightly lesser in western Ky, but would have to really step it up to hang with the top ones in here.  Should be blasting early. 

9

Do It Best

One of my favorite overnight horses, regardless of the trip this guy always gives you a Grade ‘A’ effort.  Pulled off a couple of upsets here last year, but he wasn’t done any favors with the post draw and this is not an easy crew.  Only his very best will do here.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                5-6-3-8

1

Princess Wendy

Wendy tried them free-legged last time, but didn’t seem to reverse her fortunes.  This field is an absolute crap shoot, but hard to endorse her off those recent tries. 

2

By the Sea Sally

Chi-town invader came up empty last time, but did have a decent AM work prior.  This is a field with plenty of question marks.  Can’t say anything would surprise me here. 

3

Bad Girlfriend

What’s worse, a bad girlfriend or none at all?  Hard to say, and hard to gage this mare off her Paducah efforts.  I’m having trouble coming up with anything solid in this crew. 

4

Shirleybaerg

Barn has had plenty of success here in the past, and this mare shows a couple of average efforts at Scioto.  Again, this is a field full of question marks.  Certainly have to take a look here. 

5

Sweetlittleheart

Held her own against similar company at Bluegrass.  One of many that I could make a case for in here with her best effort. 

6

Auroring Doll

At first glance, this mare appears to be the one to beat, but she is likely to be the fav and has had some severe stamina problems this season.  It’s a LONG way home if she’s on top at the head of the lane. 

7

Im Bashful in Away

Yet to hit the board in 11 tries, but this is probably the softest spot she has landed in thus far in her career.  Will she be able to step it up against these?  I wish I knew. 

8

Pocket Belle N

13yo mare blazed through some wicked fractions in her first local start on Sunday, and now she lands right back in the box.  No question, this is a much softer crew than she faced last time.  Stiltner is going to have to find a way to ration out the speed though. 

Race 9                     Selections                                8-6-7-2

1

Crazy Dan

Dan got claimed at the end of June, and we’ve only seen him make one AM start for his new connections.  It was a decent work, but he is stepping up quite a bit against a decent group of conditioned horses tonight. 

2

I Ota Win

Invades after a nice win off a tough trip at Raceway.  Taking a decent step up, but anything close to his best should put him right in the mix. 

3

Sassy Kathys Girl

PA shipper got cooked early in her last effort, but has been holding her own in the claiming ranks at The Meadows.  Not sure she is ready to go with the favs in here, but could have a shot at the minor awards. 

4

Take a Shot Scott

Shows some decent lines from both Bluegrass and Scioto, but may be spotted a little too tough against this crew.  I’m always willing to take a shot, but I’m going to wait for a better spot for Scott. 

5

E R Prince Charmin

Found himself in way too tough last time out at Scioto, but should find this spot to be much more to his liking.  Another with a solid chance. 

6

Catalina Kid

Drops into the conditioned ranks from claimers at Hoosier.  Has had almost a month off, and changes barns as well.  Looks to have landed in a nice spot for his local debut. 

7

Averylu

Has been facing some tough company at Scioto, and nearly got the job done on the class drop last time out.  Lands in what should be a similar spot tonight, but facing the boys as well.  Needs her very best. 

8

Last Second Shot

Was decent here last year, and he will certainly pick up on the move to the mile track.  Possibly ready for a buzzer beater at a big number?  I’ll take a flyer. 

9

Hezasonof eclipse

Speedball has hooked a tough crew in his first local try, and I’m going to wait until he lands in against softer company. 

10

Leadme tothetruth

Veteran campaigner making his 150th LT start tonight, but after some thorough investigating, I think it is asking too much from post 10 against these.  Pass. 

Race 10                   Selections                                2-5-3-8

1

Under Act

No luck against similar recently.  Won’t get any easier here.  Pass. 

2

Whersmelucky charms

Was in deep water at Scioto last time, and drops into our bottom level condition for his first local start.  Doesn’t appear to be an overly tough crew, looks like the one to beat. 

3

Boodro

Finished up a distant 2nd in his first start off the shelf in IL fair, and should continue to improve here in his 2nd start back of the season.  Not an overly tough group he lands in against. 

4

Megawatt

Yet another that is taking a substantial class plunge in his first local start, and could be in line for a major wakeup call.  Only 1 for 54 in his last couple of years though for the win. 

5

Lock Out

Q’fed decently, and drops in for his first start after a 3 month break.  Anything close to the AM effort, and he should lock up an on the board finish. 

6

Gran Hiratzka

Hasn’t had much success against similar in OH, and would need to pick it up to hang with the favs in here.  I’ll watch one first. 

7

Theshadow nose

Hooked a tough spot for this class in his first start here on Sunday, and lands in against an easier group tonight.  Still going to need to find a lot more. 

8

Sailors Sky

Raced evenly in his first local start, and is another that should find this to group to be more to his liking.  Will need his very best.  Jerrell opted here over #9.    

9

KB’s Brock

Raced evenly in for the tag Sunday, and now drops into the bottom condition.  Slammed with post 9, and still needs to find a bit more speed to hang with the top ones.  Jerrell opted to #8 instead.
