Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, September 13th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                8-7-5-4

1

Allgrownup

Trotted evenly in both local appearances, but appears to have hooked an even tougher crew tonight.  Should sit close and will try to hang around for a piece late.  Your call. 

2

Alejandro Hall

Lone 2yo in the field apparently just missed the $250k KYSS final here on Sunday, after turning in a solid 3rd place finish behind a couple of nice colts a couple of weeks back.  Barn on a roll, should continue to improve. 

3

Shawnee Wind

Tired late against similar company last time, and it doesn’t appear that things are going to get any easier here.  Pass. 

4

Say What

PA invader has been holding her own against mid-level stakes company on the east coast, but she is going to have to find even more stamina to hang with the top ones in here.  Miller opted to #8 instead.    

5

Touched By Lindy

Comes off what appears to be an interesting win against overnight company at Plainridge, and appears to pack some speed when he decides to mind his manners.  Maybe a shot at the minor awards. 

6

Moreagio

Would need a lot more-agio to hang with these. 

7

Miss Chip K

Appears to have really turned the corner recently while facing some top fillies on the east coast.  Should continue to improve with the stretch out to the mile strip.  Must respect. 

8

Holier Than Thou

No luck in the big money PASS finals in the last couple, but I will point out that this filly picked up a check in the $714k Hambo Oaks earlier in the summer and hung with Check Me Out in the elim.  Big shot. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                7-5-8-6

1

Thistle Dhu

Has had some breaking problems thus far in her brief career, and I’ll watch her go around once first. 

2

Ballet Slippers

Finally put in a clean line last time in local overnight, but would still have to find a lot more speed to go with the top ones in here. 

3

Cashcow Volo

Doesn’t appear to ready to go with the top ones in here just yet.  Pass. 

4

Right Away

A notch below the top fillies in KYSS action, and may find that to be the case here as well. 

5

Find the Magic

Held her own against some of the top fillies in the country in Jersey, and should find this spot to be more to her liking.  Anything close to her best effort puts her right in the mix. 

6

Rosie’s Warrior

Lightly raced filly may not be seasoned enough to hang with the top ones in here just yet.  I’ll watch for any further improvement.  Nisonger opted to #4 instead.    

7

Vintage Oaks

Rebounded with a dominant performance against overnight company at Vernon last time after making a break in the $150k NJSS final prior.  No question she has the ability if she minds her manners.  DM opted to #8 instead.

8

Little Bitty Lies

Made a break last time in $15k KYSS leg which caused her to miss the big money final.  Lands on the outside now, conservative steer coming?  I would assume so.  Miller opted here over #7.    

 

Race 3                     Selections                                3-5-9-6

1

Downpour

Appears to have been used hard early last time yet still was able to draw clear to an easy win in only the 2nd start of her career.  Hooks a couple of tough foes tonight, but any further improvement puts her close.  TT opted to #3.

2

Vallas Cowgirl

No luck in 2 overnight tries in PA, and hooks a solid group for her local debut.  Not tonight.  Tetrick opted to #3 instead.    

3

Miss Steele

Not sure what happened with the break over the half mile oval last time at Freehold, but she has proven that she can hang with some of the tops in the country thus far at The Big M.  Plenty of talent here. 

4

Lady Likes Muscles

Appears to have landed in quite the shark tank for her local debut, and barn typically brings them along slowly.  I’ll watch for any further improvement. 

5

Morningstar

Another that has held her own with top stakes company, and you can see that she actually hooked up with #3 back on 8-4 in the $354k Merrie Ann. at The Big M.  Looks to turn the tables here. 

6

Mistery Woman

1st time starter is a bit of a mystery here, and even though she is likely not ready to go with the favs she does appear to have a big shot at the minor awards with any further improvement.  Miller opted here over #9.     

7

Perfect Alliance

Recovered fairly well after an early break last time, but would have to find a lot more speed still to hang with the top ones in here. 

8

Richesse Oblige

2 for 2 over this track now, but she is yet to prove that she can go with a field like this.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit still. 

9

Southwind Sauna

Added hobbles for the runner-up finish at Freehold in $29k stake last week, finishing behind a VERY nice filly that we will see in the next race.  I’ll toss her on the ticket for some value underneath.  Miller opted to #6.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                1-5-9-7

1

Southwind Cocoa

The $150k NJSS Champ ships in riding a 2 race win streak, and lands on the pole here to try and make it 3 in a row.  No question she has plenty of talent, and a wicked late kick.  Tetrick opted here over #2.     

2

Omnipotent

Held her own against primarily overnight company at Pocono, but asking quite a bit to go with the top ones in here right now.  Tetrick opted to #1 instead.    

3

Karalta Bye Bye

1st time starter hooks a solid group for her debut, and as previously mentioned, this barn typically brings youngsters along slowly.  I’ll watch one first. 

4

Ivory Queen

Came up only a neck short of her first career victory last time at Pocono, and would have to pick it up even more to go with the top fillies in here. 

5

With Sugar

Has hooked up with #1 twice now, and came up on the short end both times.  No question she will be close once again with her best effort though. 

6

Silver Credit

Tired late after being used hard last time at Freehold, but appears to be one of many with a shot at the minor awards in here behind the favs.  Beaten less than 5 lengths by #1 back on 8-17 in $150k final. 

7

Herculotte Hanover

Handily defeated a field of older rivals in her local debut, and I will point out that the 2nd place finisher in there came back to win impressively last week.  One of several with a shot underneath. 

8

Déjà vu Too

No question this filly has some talent when she minds her manners, but she has now made breaks in 5 of 7 LT starts.  I’m not willing to take the risk, might be déjà vu all over again here.  Miller opted here over #6.    

9

Drink the Wine

Dominated with an easy win in the $66k Historic Stake last time at Vernon, and appears to have really rounded into form in the last couple of starts.  Has her work cut out from post 9, but she can go with these.  

 

Race 5                     Selections                                8-5-7-6

1

Il Pizzaiolo

Regally bred colt was a step behind his KYSS rivals, and would still need to improve a bit to hang with the top ones in here as well.  Nisonger opted here over #6.   

2

Fashion Glider

An even effort at Philly last time, but is another that is going to have to pick it up still to hang with the top ones in this crew.  Campbell opted to #5 instead.    

3

Text Winner

Picked up some decent checks against mid-level stakes company in PA, but facing what appears to be an even tougher group tonight.  Not sure if he can text in a win against these. 

4

Cantab Jones

Local Q’fer was decent, but we haven’t seen him prove he packs the speed to go with the top ones in here. 

5

Possessed Fashion

Finished 3rd last time as a big longshot in the $200k PA Final, and has proven he can hold his own against major league company.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post.  Must respect.  Campbell opted here over #2.   

6

Jacks To Open

NY invader appears to be a notch below the top ones, but has put together a decent resume against some tough colts thus far.  Potentially a shot at the minor awards.  Nisonger opted to #1 instead.    

7

Sailer Eddie

Talented youngster has hit the board in 6 of 8 thus far, including a close 2nd place finish in the $71k Historic last time at Vernon.  Not an easy crew he faces in his local debut, but he can go with these. 

8

Spider Blue Chip

Picked a bad time to make a break in the $200k PA Final last time, and hopefully that is not a sign of things to come.  Should be blasting early, and is likely the reason Dave Miller is in town. 

9

Up Front N Crazy

Doesn’t appear ready to go with the top ones in here just yet.  I’ll pass for now. 

10

Ghost

I can’t remember seeing too many grey Muscles Yankee colts, but that’s just what we have here.  Appeared on the right track before the break last time, but has his work cut out from way out here.  I’ll watch one. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                5-2-8-1                    Pick 4 Starts Here                  See Ticket at the end

1

Beach Bandit

Not sure what caused him to make the break last time, but he had been on the right track prior.  Should sit close from the inside post.  Your call.  Stiltner opted here over #10.    

2

Sandbar Slugger

Got caught up in a big mile last time, finishing a distant 4th behind the runaway winner.  Takes a substantial drop down into the bottom level here, but likely a short price looming.  Not sure I like that. 

3

Whersme luckycharms

Appears to have tailed off a bit in the last couple, after it appeared that he may finally be heading in the right direction a few starts back.  Could win it on his best day, but that’s hard to predict. 

4

Brooklets Kama

I’ll watch him go around once after being on the shelf 3 months prior to tonight. 

5

Jennas Sand Kicker

OH invader is taking a huge plunge in class for his local debut, and lands in a perfect mid pack post.  We’ve seen several Scioto shippers win at first asking already this season. 

6

Pocket Belle

13yo may be getting a little long in the tooth, as she is yet to have much success since arriving locally this season.  Hard to endorse her against these. 

7

Frontier Belle

Hasn’t had much pop since arriving locally, and would take a complete turnaround to make any major noise against these. 

8

Cruise to Fame

I was very impressed with his local debut 3 starts back, but he has yet to take the next step forward since that start.  Not an overly tough group here, but still needs his very best. 

9

Misconception

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these right now.  Pass.

10

Blazing Tower

Drops from the claiming ranks into our bottom condition, and I have a feeling that he will find this level more to his liking.  Certainly wasn’t done any favors with post 10 tonight though.  Stiltner opted to #1 instead.   

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                4-10-7-2

1

Fort Riley

Not ready for these. 

2

Kacy’s Photo

Right down the road for an easy win last time, but appears to have hooked a tougher crew for this level tonight.  Would need to improve even more. 

3

R Bashbul Bob

Drew into the field at the last minute after a late scratch, and appears to have hooked a solid crew for his local debut.  I’ll watch him go around once first. 

4

Perfect Beauty

Very impressive wire to wire win in her last try, as she held off #10 fairly easily in there.  No reason to think she can’t blast to the top and repeat that effort here. 

5

Glad Glidings

No match for #4 last time, having to settle for a distant 3rd place finish.  Hard to see her turning the tables here, but could pick up one of the minor awards once again. 

6

Victoria Valley

A decent runner-up finish behind #2 last time, but I must admit that she had every opportunity to go by her if she had been good enough.  Things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Stiltner opted here over #8.    

7

Delmot

Press time is before that Q’fer on 9-11, so take a good look at that line.  It would be the 2nd AM work with hobbles if it goes successfully.  Maybe that will cure the breaking issues, she appears to have some talent. 

8

Moma Jean’s Crown

Perfect trip behind #4 last time, but tired badly down the lane.  Would take a complete turnaround here.  Stiltner opted to #6 instead.    

9

Total Enjoyment

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to go with these.  Pass. 

10

Duck Crossing

Has been 1-2 in 10 of 12 starts on the year, and finished up a game 2nd behind #4 last time.  Likely will leave for better position once again, but still going to be a tough task to turn the tables. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                4-8-10-7

1

Scootin Keefe

Not munch punch in the small field last time on the messy track.  Hard to gage off that effort, but I’ll let her try to beat me against these.  Loney opted to #5 instead.    

2

HopeN promises

Finished up 3rd in her local debut 2 starts back, well ahead of #1 that night.  Not sure she can contend for the top spot, but could pick up one of the minor awards once again.  Tetrick opted to #3 instead.    

3

Tundra

Appears to be improving with each career start, but still not sure he is ready to hang with the top ones just yet. 

4

Southern Strong

Invaded the Meadows with an easy overnight score, and now she returns to her home track and appears to be primed and poised to make it back to back wins.  I’m on board. 

5

Veloce

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these.  Pass.  Loney opted here over #’s 1 & 6.   

6

It’s True

Cleared to the lead briefly last time around the far turn at 48-1!  Tired a bit late after the aggressive attempt, and she is still going to have to find some more stamina to hang around late.  Loney opted to #5 instead.    

7

Blueridge Casino

His local debut was fairly solid in from the OH fair circuit, as he raced evenly into a fairly quick back half to finish 3rd.  Any further improvement puts him in the mix once again. 

8

Muncie

Fought willingly down the lane on the off track to dig in for his first career victory, for a colt that really appears to be rounding the corner in his last couple.  Not an easy spot here, but he is headed in the right direction. 

9

Argon Fire

Finished up an even 4th behind #8 on the off track last time, and appears to have landed in an even tougher group and moves to post 9 tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

10

Forever Kissed

Made a break in $25k OHSS last time in Cleveland, but sprinted home to rally past #8 for the victory in his local debut 2 starts back.  Smith will have to find a way to work him into the race from way out here though. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                3-6-7-4

1

Ultimate Beachboy

Missed over a month now after having some sickness, but appeared to rebound with a decent AM try over the half mile oval at Freehold.  Hooks a solid crew though, I’ll watch one first. 

2

Twenty to Life

Some even efforts against overnight company in Philly to begin his career, and he appears to have hooked an overly tough group for this level in his local debut.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Miller opted to #3 instead.   

3

Ideal Ginny

Overcame a tough first over trip last time to pick up a nice 4th place check in the $150k NJSS final at The Big M.  Appears to pack wicked speed, and no question is the one to beat here.  Miller opted here over #2.   

4

Mattwestern

Unleashed a nice late rally to pick up the win at Philly last time, and has hit the board in 5 of 8 thus far in her brief career.  Any similar effort puts her in the mix once again. 

5

Caribbean Treasure

Picked up a decent 5th place check in the $250k KYSS final, but keep in mind the field was scratched down to just a field of 5 there.  Should find this level more to her liking, but has hooked a tough crew tonight. 

6

Think Pink

Plainridge invader ships in off back to back wins against overnight company, and should improve even more with the stretch out to the big track.  Might end up with a nice cover trip from post 6.  Maybe. 

7

Bach

Held his own against mid-level stakes company in Indy, but appears to have hooked a solid crew for his local debut.  Would need to improve even more to go with the fav in here. 

8

Dragon Tattoo

Very disappointing effort as the heavy fav here on Sunday, and it certainly won’t get any easier in much tougher group tonight.  Pass. 

9

Dancing in Terror

Romped at The Meadows after a couple of decent local starts to begin his career.  Lands on the outside of tough group here though, will need to improve even more. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                6-3-2-1

1

Bizzaro Lindy

Tired a bit late after a first over try in the $71k Historic at Vernon.  Out of the talented first crop of Crazed, this guy should continue to improve and lands on the pole tonight in full field.  Maybe. 

2

San Donato

Picked up some decent checks on the lucrative PASS circuit, and actually finished up behind #6 in the $50k Consolation at The Meadows last time.  His best effort puts him right in the mix against these. 

3

Super Classic

Narrowly defeated #1 in the same stakes division at Vernon last time, and held his own on the NJSS circuit prior at Club Med.  Packs plenty of early speed, and should sit close to the pace once again. 

4

Max Andover

Just like #2, this guy was narrowly defeated by #6 last time in the $50k Consolation.  Appears to be one of several with a big chance in here. 

5

Swift Warrior

Made a break in his career debut, and it would take a complete turnaround to hang with these.  Pass. 

6

Picture This

Left hard from post 8 in the $50k Consolation last time, and still had enough pop on the end of it to get up in time for the victory.  Needs his very best, but I can picture another good finish here. 

7

Lauderdale

Has had some breaking problems in the AM, but did wedge a blowout Q’fer in between the breaks.  Has some ability, but still not sure we can trust him to mind his manners just yet. 

8

Marvenue

Added hobbles in the last AM try at Pocono, but has yet to display the speed to hang with these. 

9

Sharpshot Hall

Made a couple of breaks in KYSS action locally, and things aren’t going to get any easier from post 9 against a solid crew here.  I’ll pass for now. 

10

Andy Revrac

Made a break last time, but picked up a win in the mid-level stake at Pocono prior.  Not sure we will get an ultra aggressive steer after the miscue though.  I’ll watch closely for any improvement. 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                8-9-2-4

1

Tactful Way

Well, how do I say this tactfully?  Colt has a TON of ability, but has made breaks in every single LT start thus far.  Do we assume he will be better with the stretch out to the big track or take a shot and throw him out at a short price?  I’m always looking to beat the fav.   

2

Bullish

Picked up some solid checks against tough company on the PASS circuit to begin his career.  Hasn’t offered to make a break to this point, and appears to always show up with a nice effort.  I can make a case. 

3

Icy Chisel

All kinds of breaking problems thus far, and I’m not sure he will be able to break the ice in this spot. 

4

Creatine

Not sure why he made the break last time, but was dominant against overnight company in his prior local start.  No question he is taking a step up here, but any further improvement should put him close to these. 

5

All Laid Out

Debuted with a nice 2nd place finish over an off track at Pocono, but he ends up in much tougher company tonight for his 2nd try.  Would have to pick it up quite a bit still. 

6

Amalfi Coast

Made a break as a big longshot in the $71k stake last time at Vernon, but had been competitive against solid company on the east coast prior.  Possibly a conservative steer here though coming off the break. 

7

Tuff Guy Lindy

Closed from far back to trim the margin to less than 3 lengths and pick up a 5th place check in stakes company in his last try at Vernon.  Any further improvement puts him squarely in the mix.  

8

Cashco

Appears to pack plenty enough early speed to overcome post 8, and he has hit the board in 5 o f 8 thus far in his brief career.  Should sit close, and will likely hang around for a nice piece late. 

9

Whole Lotta Nasty

Yet to miss the board in 7 career tries, and is another that appears to pack plenty enough early speed to overcome post 9.  Catch him if you can.  Tetrick opted here over #4.    

10

Apollo Hanover

Made breaks in 2 of his 3 LT starts, and now gets slammed with post 10 in an ultra competitive crew.  I’ll watch him go around once first. 

 

Race 12                   Selections                                4-11-6-8-10                             10 CENT HI FIVE WAGERING

1

Megawatt

Hasn’t had much success against claiming company since arriving locally, and appears to have landed in another solid crew in full 11 horse field.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

2

Tricky Grin

I’ll have to admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of his last time, but he was able to mow down #6 after sitting in mid-pack in the small 5 horse field for his 1st win of the year.  A major improvement, but won’t be that easy here. 

3

Jaxx

Completely pinned in with no place to race 2 starts back, so I was all over him last time and he never even made it to the gate before going offstride.  What should we expect here?  Your guess is as good as mine. 

4

Hezasonof eclipse

Battled for a long way after a tough first over trip last time, and there is no question this guy has really rounded into the best form of his season over the last few starts.  Any similar effort puts him close once again. 

5

Mor Than Enuf Russ

Held his own in the claiming ranks recently, and might be in line for a nice cover trip from perfect mid-pack post in full field.  Still going to need his very best.  Loney opted here over #10.    

6

Catalina Kid

Took a mysterious plunge in class last time, and couldn’t get the job done in small field as the 3-5 fav.  Things won’t get any easier in full field here.  Needs even more. 

7

Theshadow nose

Drops down into the $2.5k claiming ranks for the first time, but I’ll still let him prove that he can go with these.  Should find this level more to his liking though. 

8

Fox Valley Michael

Disappointed as the fav in his last couple of starts, as he hasn’t been able to duplicate the big win he had 3 starts back here.  Still fits with these, should be close with a smooth journey.  Tetrick opted here over #2.    

9

Fortune Road

Lands in post 9 after getting scratched lame in his last.  Not a great combo. 

10

SBD First Blood

Appears to have rounded the corner in his last couple of local starts, and may have finished up a little better last time if he had found clearance sooner.  Still not going to be easy from way out here though.  Loney opted to #5.    

11

Crazy Dan

No excuse to not fight off his longshot rival last time, but it still wasn’t a bad effort to be a close 2nd.  Things couldn’t have set up any better for him there, but now he does drop a level.  Likely to be a short price from the 2nd tier, I will try to find some value elsewhere for the win.
