Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, September 20th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                7-6-5-2

1

Misconception

Appears overmatched against these.  Pass. 

2

Mor Storms Coming

Turned things around with a solid 3rd place finish in claiming company last time, and lands in what appears to be a wide open crew in our bottom condition.  Still looking for his first win on the year though. 

3

Lightning Reno

Raced evenly to finish 5th last time, but would still need to pick things up quite a bit to make any major noise against these.  Stiltner opted to #7 instead.    

4

Bad Girlfriend

Finally showed a bit of late interest last time with a close 5th place finish, but would have to improve even more to go with the top ones in here.  Barn did have a $100 winner here on Sunday night!  Loney opted to #2 instead.    

5

Shesgotwht everitis

A solid 2nd last week behind a heavy fav, but taking into account the 0 for 27 record on the season I will only consider her for the minor awards again in here. 

6

Jennas Sand Kicker

No match for the runaway winner in his most recent start, but wasn’t bad for his local debut.  Won’t be facing anything that tough in here, should be able to blast right to the lead. 

7

Broadway Fame

Finally turned things around with a nice 2nd place finish Saturday, and he should be very close if he follows that up with a similar effort here.  Good enough to beat these on his best day.  Stiltner opted here over #3.    

 

Race 2                     Selections                                4-3-2-5   

1

Shawneewind

Should sit close from the pole, but appears to be a notch below the top ones in here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

2

Allgrownup

Trotted evenly behind a solid crew last time, and essentially finished right on the line with #3.  Appears to be one of many with a shot in a WIDE open crew.  Tetrick opted here over #5.    

3

Say What

Took all kinds of tote action last week, but could only manage a distant 3rd place finish behind two nice fillies.  Lands in what appears to be a softer spot tonight, her best effort puts her right in the mix. 

4

Touched By Lindy

Finished up just behind #’s 2 & 3 in his last start, and will obviously need to find a bit more pop on the end of it if he’s going to contend for top honors here.  Should offer good value though, I can make a case.   

5

Perfect Beauty

No question this filly is in career best form right now with back to back LT mark performances against lesser, and now she steps up to take on a fairly solid group.  She fits with these though.  Tetrick opted to #2 instead.    

6

Dandover

Has been taking on some tough company in six figure events in PA, but he’s had some major breaking issues recently.  No question he has the ability, but not sure I’m willing to take the risk at short odds. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                7-2-3-4

1

Looksgood onu

Lands in a very tough spot.  Not tonight. 

2

Ideal Ginny

No question this filly packs plenty of speed, but I wasn’t thrilled when I saw all the equipment she had on here last time and then went down as a heavy fav.  Still wasn’t a bad effort, should be close once again. 

3

Aunt Caroline

1st time starter put together a solid final ¾’s of a mile on idle in the AM here, and appears to be yet another talented filly from the first crop of Somebeachsomewhere.  Conservative steer coming here in her career debut?

4

Tundra

I’ll have to give this guy credit, he has really picked things up over his last couple of starts and had some sneaky late pace on the end of it last time to finish 3rd.  Should continue to improve. 

5

Southern Strong

Not sure what happened last time, I expected her to roll coming off the big win in PA, but she fired a blank after getting towed into it quite nicely.  Which SS shows up here?  Good question. 

6

Blueridge Casino

Nearly pulled off the 10-1 upset here last week, before settling for a solid 2nd.  Appears to have hooked an even tougher group here though, and would have to pick things up even more. 

7

Muscle Beachboy

Picked up 4th three starts back against the best of the best in the $309k Woodrow Wilson at the Big M.  Lands in a comfortable spot for his local debut, and I’ll give the edge to the colt over the filly in here. 

8

Muncie

Tough parked out trip after the break last time, but still showed some fight to hang in closely down the lane.  Unfortunately he lands on the outside of a good group here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                5-6-3-9

1

Double Dip

Appears to be a notch or two below the top ones in here at this point.  Pass.  

2

Wesley Gayle

Added lasix last time against similar company in Indy, but still didn’t appear to solve her stamina issues.  Needs more.  Nisonger opted to #10 instead.    

3

Duck Crossing

Got completely roughed up from post 9 last time, so I can excuse the break there.  Should be able to get away nice and close from post 3, and her prior efforts put her in the mix. 

4

Moma Jean’s Crown

Perfectly driven to save all the ground last time and pick up a 4th place check.  Lands in against another solid group here though, and will have to pick things up even more. 

5

Tornado

Thrown to the sharks in stakes company for his first 3 career tries, but he continues to improve with each start and even picked up $20k for finishing 4th in the $250k Final.  Appears to be the one to beat. 

6

R Bashbul Bob

Appeared that he was going to be a very close 2nd last time before making a speed break in deep stretch which caused him to be placed 3rd.  No question a big improvement, anything similar puts him close again. 

7

Total Enjoyment

I’m not sure she is going to enjoy this group.  Pass.  Tetrick opted to #6 instead.    

8

Fort Riley

Not sure she can hold down the fort against this crew.  Pass. 

9

Blue Diamonds

Not sure what caused her to make the break last time, but had picked up a couple of decent checks against stakes company here prior.  Has her work cut out with main rivals drawing inside tonight. 

10

I Look Foxy

Has been solid on the OH fair circuit this season, but gets slammed with post 10 against a tough crew for her local debut coming off a scratched sick line.  Not a great recipe.  Nisonger opted here over #2.    

 

Race 5                     Selections                                7-8-6-2

1

Whersmelucky charms

Has been in and out of form here all season, and it’s always hard to tell what kind of effort we are going to get.  This may be a bit tough for him regardless. 

2

Theshadow nose

Faded badly after a tough trip at this level last time, but should be in line for a smoother journey from post 2 tonight.  I may toss him on the super ticket to provide some value underneath. 

3

Hoosier GB Diamond

Popped the pocket before the half when following the fav last time, and that didn’t work out all that well for her late as she tired badly.  Should be blasting early once again, but will need more late. 

4

Yank My Rope

No luck at this level in her last couple, would take a complete turnaround.  Wrenn opted to #5 instead.   

5

Fortune Road

Had every opportunity to finish very close on Sunday, but hung on the far outside under heavy encouragement late.  Should be in line for a nice trip from perfect mid-pack post, but needs more late pop.  RW chose over #4.    

6

Crazy Dan

No luck from the 2nd tier in his first drop down to this level last time, and looks like a different horse from what we saw 3 starts back.  Likely to be a short price again, worth the risk? 

7

Keystone Nite Hawk

Showed some fight last time after getting used very hard through a first over journey into some quick fractions.  3rd start for new connections here, may be ready to pop at a decent price. 

8

Hezasonof eclipse

Expectedly tired late after getting used extremely hard last week in big field, but any smoother journey puts him in play against this crew.  Should offer some value as well. 

9

Mor Than Enuf Russ

Lacks early speed and lands in post 9 against a solid group.  Likely to be sitting far back early.  Not sure I can endorse him with that in mind. 

10

Pocket Belle

13yo mare has some early speed and she will likely use it after landing in post 10.  Would take a LOT more stamina to hang around late against these though. 

 

Race 6                       Selections                  3-9-4-5               Pick 4 Starts Here      $2,317 Carryover          $10,000 Guarantee      

1

Up Front N Crazy

No match for the top colts as a big longshot last week, and would have to find a lot more to hang with these as well. 

2

Tactful Way

Has to be frustrating for the connections, as this guy made yet another break last week just before the half after sitting 4th throughout.  Has a TON of speed, but has yet to stay flat in 5 career tries. 

3

San Donato

Aggressively handled last time and dug in down the lane to hold off the fav from off his back.  Any similar effort should make him the one to beat again to kick off the BIG Pick 4 pool! 

4

Deadliest Catch

Absolutely dominated in the AM here, and shows finishing up a game 2nd behind the eventual NJSS Champ in the only start he didn’t break.  Should offer some value, take a long look at him on the track. 

5

Text Winner

Texted in the big upset win last time, but I must mention that he benefitted after the 2 favs essentially knocked each other out at the head of the lane.  Still a nice effort, and he should continue to improve. 

6

Sailer Eddie

Eddie benefitted from the traffic trouble at the top of the lane last time as well, following #5 home to finish up a nice 2nd.  Has hit the board in 7 of 9 now, one of several with a big shot. 

7

Amalfi Coast

Hard to endorse after consecutive breaks now.  I’ll watch for a clean effort before hopping on board again.

8

Jacks To Open

Trotted evenly to finish up a well beaten 4th behind #5 last time, and it doesn’t appear that things will be any easier from post 8 tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

9

Whole Lotta Nasty

Couldn’t have asked for a better journey last time, but could only manage to be an even 5th behind the top group down the lane.  Reunited with Andy M., more aggressive steer coming tonight?  I think so.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                       Selections                  2-4-5-7                                                 

1

Marvenue

Showed some improvement after adding hobbles in his local debut last week, but would still need to pick things up quite a bit to hang with the top colts in here. 

2

Banco Solo

Ended up a bit unlucky in the $250k KYSS Final, as he was essentially pinned in down the lane and had to settle for 5th.  Very talented son of Master Glide, won 2 Kindergarten legs in Jersey before arriving locally. 

3

Lauderdale

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top ones in here just yet.  Pass. 

4

All Laid Out

Finally found room to thread through horses in deep stretch en route to his first career victory last week.  Should continue to improve in only his 3rd LT try, and we may get a more aggressive steer here. 

5

Creatine

Big effort last time to hold on for 2nd after getting nipped by #4 down the lane.  With the exception of the break 2 back, he continues to improve with each and every start.  A big threat once again. 

6

Crazy About Pat

NY invader should improve stretching back out to the mile strip tonight, but I’m not sure he is on the same level with his stablemate (#4) or the other top colts in here just yet. 

7

Possessed Fashion

Appeared to be en route to a nice finish last time before blowing the turn and causing interference to the fav, causing him to be placed 9th.  Should be a better price tonight, one of several with a shot in here. 

8

Bullish

Appeared poised to trot by his rivals at the head of the lane last week, but had to settle for a close 3rd after being outfinished by #’s 4 & 5 in here.  Any similar effort should put him close once again. 

9

Sharpshot Hall

Lands on the outside of what appears to be a very tough group.  Not tonight. 

 

Race 8                       Selections                  5-6-1-3                                         

1

Herculotte Hanover

Liked her to be on the ticket at a price last week, and she was able to pull down 2nd at big number.  Likely to be a square price once again, and should sit close from the pole and continue to improve.  Lachance opted to #3.   

2

Lady Likes Muscles

Doesn’t appear ready to go with these in just her 2nd LT start.  Pass. 

3

Downpour

An even 4th place finish in her first local try, and is likely to sit close in the big bulky field tonight.  Should be able to hang around for a piece late.  Lachance opted here over #1.    

4

Ivory Queen

Not a bad effort in her first local try, but will have to find even more speed if she is going to go with the top ones in this crew.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

5

Miss Steele

Nearly surged past her rivals on the far outside last time, but ended up settling for a close 3rd place finish.  Looks to have landed in a nice spot and in a perfect mid-pack post.  Lots to like. 

6

Drink the Wine

Has proven she can go with and even beat stakes company, but was offstride far behind the gate in her local debut.  I’ll give her one more try. 

7

Find the Magic

Another that has proven she can hold her own with stakes level company, but also made a break just before the start last time.  Take a good long look at her on the track. 

8

Parlia Hanover

Plenty of breaking issues thus far as well, I’ll watch one first.  

9

Sina

Held her own on the PASS circuit, but lands out in post 9 against a bulky 11 horse field.  Has her work cut out from way out here. 

10

Déjà vu Too

Trotted evenly against some top fillies last time, but is another that may have a tough time getting worked into the race from way out here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

11

Omnipotent

Showed a lot of improvement in finishing up just behind #1 in her local debut, and appears to be one of many with a shot at the minor awards in here. 

 

Race 9                       Selections                  7-3-8-2

1

Rosie’s Warrior

Skimmed the cones last time to pick off some tired ones late and finish up a distant 2nd behind #7.  Not a bad effort, but she did benefit from several breakers.  Would need even more improvement. 

2

Ma Chere Hall

Parlayed a nice ground saving trip into a close 4th place finish in the $250k KYSS Final in her last try.  Appears to have landed in the tougher of two filly divisions here though, needs her very best. 

3

Silver Credit

Made quick work of her rivals in her local debut, and anything similar to that effort has to put her close once again.  Won’t be anywhere near 14-1 in here though! 

4

Southwind Cocoa

She made a break FAR behind the gate last time and really never looked good scoring down prior to the race.  Take a long look at her on the track, but it’s hard for me to hop back on board after seeing that. 

5

Richesse Oblige

A nice even effort last time, and should be in line for a nice cover trip from mid-pack post tonight.  Any further improvement puts her in the mix here. 

6

Southwind Sauna

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top fillies in here just yet.  I’ll pass for now. 

7

Vintage Oaks

Benefitted after some short priced rivals broke stride last week, but she still ROMPED home to an easy victory in an impressive time.  Razor sharp right now. 

8

Morningstar

Regally bred daughter of World Champ Passionate Glide parlayed a perfect pocket ride into a 2nd place finish in her local debut.  Her mom had a lot of big wins over this track!  Her best puts her close once again. 

9

Vallas Cowgirl

Trotted evenly last time, but lands in post 9 in what appears to be the toughest of two divisions.  I’ll watch this one. 

10

Right Away

Slammed with post 10 against a tough crew.  Not in here. 

11

Karalta Bye Bye

Not a bad try for her career debut, but would have to pick it up quite a bit to contend for any of the major awards. 

 

 

 

Race 10                      Selections                  8-3-1-7

1

Max Andover

Sat just off the top pair throughout last time, and hung in with them late to finish 3rd.  Should sit close once again after landing on the pole.  Maybe. 

2

Andy Revrac

An even effort from post 10 in his first local try, but he will have to find even more speed to hang with the top colts in here. 

3

Picture This

Came up just short after a picture perfect trip in his local debut as the fav, and just wasn’t good enough to get by him down the lane.  Dodges that rival tonight though, and should be close once again. 

4

Icy Chisel

Doesn’t appear ready for these just yet.  Pass. 

5

Broadway Prince

Connections obviously think this guy has some talent if they shipped him all the way up north to go for big money in Mohawk stake.  Made a break there, possibly a conservative steer coming here?

6

Fashion Glider

Offstride early in his local debut, and hooks another solid crew tonight.  Not for me. 

7

Bizzaro Lindy

Another that made a break at the start last time, but I suppose I am willing to give this guy another try in here at the minor awards after showing a bit of talent in his prior efforts. 

8

Pine Credit

Arrives riding a 3 race win streak against stakes company in NY, and should pick up even more with the return to the big track.  I can make a big case here. 

9

Il Pizzaiolo

Regally bred colt faces a tough task from post 9 here.  I’ll wait for a better spot.
