Some Happy Returns

Email

Nice to see some solid stakes-quality performers successfully return from injury-induced layoffs. 

*TRICKMEISTER, plagued by cannon bone and tibia issues, emerged from a 15-month layoff to whip five foes in the Harlan's Holiday Stakes at Gulfstream.  Trickmeister has never been headed in five lifetime starts and seems on his way to the Grade 1 Donn Handicap for trainer Richard Dutrow Jr. 

*ADIOS CHARLIE, the Jerome winner in April at Aqueduct, came back from some hind leg issues to take an 'n2x' optional claimer in professional fashion.  The Sunshine Millions Classic may be next for the Stanley Hough-trained 3-year-old.

*RENEESGOTZIP made quite the impression in winning her career debut at Hollywood Park on December 18.  Trained by Peter Miller, the juvenile filly zipped right to the front under Corey Nakatani, carved out fractions of 22.22 and 45.34, and finished up her six furlongs in 1:09.05.  The daughter of City Zip earned a 98 Beyer Speed Figure.  Reneesgotzip only sold for $3,500 as a yearling, but was purchased for $45,000 earlier this year by the Lanni Family Trust after she worked an eighth of a mile in 10.1 seconds.  She is out of No Dress Code, a sprint-winning Distorted Humor mare that is a half-sister to multiple stakes-placed Emmaria (32-4-7-4, $62,774).  The second dam, Westfold Vale (by Flying Paster), was a stakes-winner at Albuquerque and is a half-sister to multiple Grade 2 sprint winner Big Jag, the third-place finisher in the 1999 Breeders Cup Sprint and winner of the 2000 Dubai Golden Shaheen.

*SPIRIT RULES, a juvenile gelding by Tribal Rule, was nosed out for the win in his career debut at Hollywood on November 19.  He improved 20 Beyer points (to a 93) for trainer Paul Aguirre second-out, winning a Cal-bred maiden special weight on December 16 by 8 1/4 lengths. An $8,500 short yearling buy, Spirit Rules was purchased for $20,000 at the Barretts auction in October, 2010 and is a half-brother to Watch Over Me, the runner-up in the 2003 California Breeders' Champion Stakes.

*RADIANT TALENT, a homebred trained by Steve Margolis, finished second in his first two starts at Churchill Downs, but finally reached the winner's circle with an 89 Beyer score at Fair Grounds on December 17.  The juvenile won by 4 3/4 lengths under Shaun Bridgmohan.  He is by Johannesburg out of Dignified Diva, a sprint-winning mare by Meadowlake.  Radiant Talent is a half-brother to A Little Gem, the winner of the Sorority Stakes at Monmouth in 2007.

*Guess who wound up on the worktab at Gulfstream the other day?  It was none other than the popular PRESIOUS PASSION, who breezed five furlongs on December 18 in 1:03.65.  Trained by Mary Hartmann, the soon-to-be 9-year-old gelding reportedly underwent throat surgery since his most recent start, a fifth-place finish in the Sunshine Millions Turf at Santa Anita way back on January 29.  He's been getting his head straight on the farm in recent months and it will be interesting to see where he resurfaces.

Other recent workers of note:

CAPT. CANDYMAN CAN - 5F - 1:01.45B - Palm Meadows
AWESOME MARIA - 4F - 50.55B - Palm Meadows
EBLOUISSANTE (Zenyatta's sister) - 3F - 37.40H - Hollywood (Cushion Track)
JAYCITO - 6F - 1:13.00H - Hollywood (Cushion Track)

*I did some digging concerning the recent inquiry regarding Godolphin's MASTERY.  After winning the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase to close out his 2010 campaign, Mastery returned to Europe, but some physical issues knocked him out of training for the first part of the year.  His connections were hoping that he would return for the second half, but it never happened.  According to a source at Darley, Mastery "retired from Racing at the end of September and was sold privately by us for Stud Duties."  Hopefully, an announcement will be made soon regarding where he'll stand and for what fee.

Dan
thank you for the answers you gave me. question: do you have people that help you reading all the questions or do you do it all yourself. just wondering because if you do it all your case load must be huge most days.
MH01

No interns for me.  It's my pleasure to read over all of the questions and I do my best to respond to each query.  Sometimes I may miss one or two due to the volume of posts (and I thank each and every FormBlogger for contributing so much to our community), but I think it's worked out pretty well thus far.

Hey Dan,
Why hasn't Vengeful Wildcat raced since Preakness day? When will he be returning to racing?
Jim

Haven't heard anything about VENGEFUL WILDCAT although I'd have to assume there was some sort of physical problem.  If I find out anything, I'll post it to the blog.

***

Annie, Thanks for my horse in the MKB drawing! I like him. I bet he does better than Key Lime Guy. Here is Dan's analysis from Spa babies. He finished 10th on Sept. 3, 2011 at the Spa. He must have just raced recently because Da Vinci is a new listed in Wynn's future derby odds. opened recently at 125-1 and is now 100-1. I am still looking for that race. WATCH OUT FOR MY SON OF A. P. INDY
Byanose

It wasn't exactly a masterpiece, but DA VINCI broke his maiden second-out in a maiden special weight on dirt at Calder on November 26.  Sent off at 5-2 odds for his first race on the main track, Da Vinci was away slowly, but rallied from stalking range to win by a half-length.  He completed a mile in 1:41 2/5 and received a 73 Beyer Speed Figure.

Dan,
HG262, oops!!HG261. oops!! HG262..Now, which one is it ? LoL......{Your heading & 1st sentence}.........You're excused pardner.......
Seriously, now I that I just witnessed R3 @the Gulf, I must say I just saw Entry 1 & 1A for the '12 Derby, barring injuries..Those Slewsters sure can run. Consortium just ran into a Pletcher buzzsaw, in Algorithms. Consortium knocked almost 2 full seconds off his 1st race. They smoked a 1:09 flat split. Finished up in 1:15.2..He got beat 1/2 length. I smell some Big Beyer Figs..He tried to get the jump down the lane. He didn't quit, he just got beat.
1}What were the Beyer Figs, please......I can't wait..
2}What's up w/last years best horse horse ?{'10}--Eskendereya....ThanX......
Slip-Sliding Slew ........
Curt V.

ALGORITHMS, a $170,000 son of Bernardini and a half-brother to graded winners Justin Phillip, Successful Mission and Keyed Entry, returned from a minor hock injury to make it two-for-two for Pletcher.  He received an 88 Beyer Speed Figure.  CONSORTIUM, a Bernardini homebred from the Darley outfit, is out of multiple Grade 3 winner Marietta.  Consortium received an 86.  Both look stakes-bound.
ESKENDEREYA stood his first stud season in 2011 at Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky.  His fee was $30,000 in 2011.  This coming year, his fee is $25,000 ($22,500 if booked by November 1).

Congrats to Adam Campobasso for finishing first in last week's HandiGambling exercise.  Let's go with for Friday's sixth at Gulfstream for this week's event.

PAST PERFORMANCES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS BLOG POST.
 
Remember that you have a mythical $100 with which to wager on the race, and the entrant with the highest money total will receive a "Monthly Enhanced 60-Card Past Performance Plan."
 
Anyone going over the $100 limit will be disqualified.
 
Please post your plays and analysis to the blog.
 
Please separate the play from the analysis and label the play "HG" with the program numbers (instead of the horse's name) for easier scoring.
 
In the event of a tie, the earliest post gets first preference. One entry per person please.
 
I reserve the right to approve or deny any entries.
 
I know that there is a time issue for some of you, but let's remember why we began the HandiGambling races in the first place. The goal was to share ideas on why we like these horses, and why we're betting them the way we are. I'm not asking for a novel, but if you could spare a sentence or two outlining your handicapping angles, and thought processes about wagering, it would be appreciated.

Best of luck to all.

KNM, (and SR Vegas) Same here! We are having a green and brown Christmas this year. There was a gorgeous pink sunset this morning, and the weather just keeps rolling along in the mid-30s to mid-40s. Only thing that worries me, is that it will catch up all at once some time this winter. Annie

MPM, LOL! HANDSOME MIKE has gone from being a reject to the most popular horse on the blog. I guess I have to make an executive decision here. Keith L gave up his rights to him, which follows that he also gave up IMS Syndicate's rights. SR Vegas already has two horses, the IMS Syndicate is loaded for bear, and you have none. And what would be more appropriate than having Mike go to Mike. :) Since he was obviously named for you, it only seems right. Therefore, it is decreed: HANDSOME MIKE will henceforth be owned by handsome MPM. :) I'm sure he will be very happy and run well for you. I'm sure you've seen his Bio. Annie
Keith L. More than 1 year ago
Annie and MPM 101: Well, SR Vegas will be heartbroken with that Executive decision as to the ownership of Handsome Mike. And to be fair, she only has accumulated 1&1/2 MKBs as she is sharing ownership of Out Entourage with Blackstone, who was too busy with work and life to do justice to his colt in the early goings. But I'm sure MPM101 will take good care of his Mike, and enjoy seeing him progress from a wantabe Classics Trail horse to a good Turfer on the West Coast in due time. Which brings us back to "my" request to fill out my 2 horse stable with the addition of that late developer A Boy Named Em, who looks to be a little turfy too, and maybe just a wet track runner, but I'm somewhat interested, and can give this to date truely unloved one a good home. Also Annie, my condolences on the tragic accident to Chocolate Candy...as you may remember, I backed him through his Triple Crown campaign too, and supported him several times after at age 4. Bred to some speed influence, his progeny might have had a chance to best their daddy's not unremarkable career, running on dirt, poly-cushion, and turf. While other Candy Ride sons surpassed what he could do (except in the KY Derby), he was the pioneer of that Champion's offspring at the routes. Keith L.

56. CHAAZZ, Your horse is EL PADRINO. He is a chestnut colt by Pulpit, a son of A.P. Indy, out of Enchanted Rock (Giant's Causeway). He was born on 1/22/09. He sold at the KEE Sept2010 Yearling Sales for 210K. Your trainer is Todd Pletcher. DP = 11-5-20-0-0 (36) DI = 2.60 CD = 0.75 He has earned $60,600 in 3 starts. 8/20 SAR 2nd MDSP at 7F 10/29 BEL Broke MD at 1 mile by 12-3/4L 11/26 AQU 3rd GR2 Remsen at 1-1/16 He is nominated to the Gulfstream Park Derby on Jan. 1st. He last worked at Palm Meadows in 1:01.31B. Well, we'll see how that Giant's Causeway does from the dam's side. Good luck with your horse! Annie

Bernard, Thank you for the kind words! And you have a very Merry Christmas too. I can give you a brief idea of what is considered fast for workouts over here. However, some tracks and especially training tracks are naturally slower than others, so what would be slow for say, Hollywood Park, would be fast for Palm Meadows. A general idea though: 4F - under 48 5F - under 1:00 6F - under 1:12 7F - under 1:25 Steve T - Correct me if I'm wrong. :) Good luck with your horse, Bernard. I hope he gives you some fun along the way. P.S. If you ever see a horse work a mile in 1:39 or less, hammer him.:) Annie

57. DAVE B, Your horse is MOTOR CITY. He is a bay gelding by Street Sense, a son of Street Cry(IRE), out of Shawgatny (Danzig Connection). He was born on 1/27/09. He was entered in the KEE Sept2010 Yearling Sales, but his reserve was not attained. (65K) Your trainer is Ian Wilkes. DP = 5-3-8-0-0 (16) DI = 3.00 CD = 0.81 In spite of not being especially desired at the auction, he has earned $99,183 in 5 starts. 7/30 ELP 2nd MDSP at 6F 8/14 ELP Broke MD at 5-1/2F 9/10 AP 3rd Arl-Wash Fut at 1 mile 10/8 KEE 8th GR1 Breeders' Fut at 1-1/16 10/30 CD Won Iroquois STKS at 1 mile Good luck with your horse!

If C drops in to say "Hi", he may not like seeing all those dosage profiles. Dosage makes him cranky. :) However, we are running our own little test this year, just to see who does what, and what the numbers did or did not tell us beforehand. Formbloggers are always up for a little scientific research. Right? LOL Annie

58. RICK'S NATURAL STAR, OK, I've never given a horse to a horse before, but I guess if a weasal can have one, so can a horse. I'm sure you will know exactly what he wants and needs. Your horse is BATTLE FORCE. He is a bay colt by Giant's Causeway, a son of Storm Cat, out of Leo's Pegasus (Fusaichi Pegasus). He was born on 1/27/09. He must have had a high reserve at the KEE Sept2010 Yearling Sale, because his bid did not attain it. (285K) Your trainer is John Shirreffs (maybe he should have been training you). DP = 8-3-27-0-0 (38) DI = 1.81 CD = 0.50 He has earned $48,000 in 3 starts. 10/1 SA 2nd MDSP at 1 mile on turf 11/4 SA Broke MD at 1 mile on turf 11/27 HOL 3rd GR3 Generous at 1 mile on turf Now all you have to do is teach him to run on dirt. That should be no problem for you. :) Good luck! Annie

59. JONAH, Your horse is CONSORTIUM. He is a bay colt by Bernardini, a son of A.P. Indy, out of Marietta (Machiavellian). He was born on 3/3/09. He is a homebred by Darley. Your trainer is Kiaran McLaughlin. DP = 7-6-11-0-0 (24) DI = 3.36 CD = 0.83 He has earned $39,350 in 2 starts. 11/12 AQU Broke MD in debut at 6-1/2F by 4-3/4L 12/16 GP 2nd Allow/OPTCL75K at 6-1/2F to Bernard's Algorithms Sure enough exacta there! :) Much luck with your horse! Annie

60. YOGI, Your horse is EMPIRE WAY. He is a dark bay or brown colt by Empire Maker, a son of Unbridled, out of Delta Princess (A.P. Indy). He is a full brother to Royal Delta ($1,694,600) and a recent 8 Million dollar sales purchase! He was born on 2/3/09. He sold at FTF FEB2011 2-year-olds in training sale for 250K. Your trainer is Mike Harrington. DP = 10-11-17-0-2 (40) DI = 2.81 CD = 0.68 Lotsa numbers there, Yogi. He has earned $72,000 in 3 starts. 11/13 HOL Broke MD in debut at 6-1/2F 11/24 HOL 6th GR3 Hol Prevue at 7F, but was forced out at the 3/8 12/17 HOL 5th GR1 CashCall Fut at 1-1/16, but was 6 wide into the stretch Hmm, I guess his dosage numbers would be identical to Royal Delta's, so perhaps he will do even better when he hits the dirt. Good luck with your horse! Annie

Annie , maybe this will draw the C-reature of the Brooklyn Badlands out ? :-) The avg. DI for derby winners between Unbridled and MTB was 2.91 . The median DI was 2.61 & CD 0.71 Super Saver was about 3.36.
