Closer Looks: Del Mar September 2, 2013


DRF Plus Preview

Race 1

Supersonic Heat
Eleventh time proved the charm for this last out graduate who tackles winners for the initial time in here; gelding prefers to make his run from well out of it and even the quick blowout here last weekend wasn't enough to improve his early interest; have to side against the repeat.
Passing Game
Blinkers helped put him on the lead against statebreds last time and he fought every step of the way to post the upset score; gelding returned to work sharply for the move back to open claimers but it looks as if he'll have to work much harder for the lead in this one; can't back him against this bunch.
Muchos Besos
Field's highest last out Beyer earner was given some time off the narrow score; barn does well with its returnees and though he will cut back to 3/4s for this he should get some pace to run at; with a fresh score on his page he looks to be a serious contender first time back.
Dashing Ash
Tries a notch better after a troubled trip in his first crack over the track; gelding has speed but there are others with lick in here and that won't make things easy on him from the bell; tough task ahead of him at this level.
Runner up in his last 2 has shown solid early interest in each of his starts at the local stand and he has won twice over the track; there's speed in here and he figures to be just off it from the outset; could offer a little bit of value here; one to consider.
Laugh At Life
Stretches out a panel on the surface switch after getting used in pace first off this outfit's claim; he's won from a tracking spot before but in his current form it looks as if he wants the lead and that's going to be a crowded spot today; keeps things honest up top but don't think he's around at the finish.
He's a Dance Star
He's been away from the races for 15 months and he'll make his synthetic debut in his return; barn boasts some recent luck with its comebackers and this guy has been working well at Golden Gate for this; fired a big one fresh on the lawn to begin last season and should be a presence from the bell today; Bejarano takes the call so he's likely ready to roll.
Won for this price 3 back on the Hollywood lawn and his last against better here was very good; like the tracking ability he showed from the outside slot last time and there should be some speed to track in here; can get there today.
Apollo Ten
Cuts back after coming up short late when in for a bigger price last time; gelding draws a good stalking post and there is speed in here, but if some of the others show up with their best he's running for a minor award.

Race 2

Big Macher
Good sign that we saw a Beyer speed figure improvement 1st time off the claim while cutting back a half furlong adds to the appeal; 11 draw in last where drifting out to the rail today which can be a tricky post position for any inexperienced runner; figures to stalk Spirited Touch then hopes to wear that one down in deep stretch.
Spirited Touch
Benefits being a frontrunner in a field lacking a lot of other defined pace; the 2-back runner-up finisher Beyered 73 in his next-out DMR-20K-maiden claiming win; best finish was when stretched out hanging on late; working well for this and seems the one to catch.
Fight the Power
1st race off the claim was a huge-Beyer deceline; has been away since defeating the 8th and 9th-place finishers from last who Beyered 100-75 in next-out OP-MSW and 40K-maiden claiming wins; posted mild-synthetic surface workouts for his 1st start on this type of oval.
Awesome Prospect
Sire is 2-for-16 with 1st-time starters; is out of an 0-for-7 dam (5K) who produced 1 winner from 2 other foals to race (stakes-placed 5-for-32 Lauren 185K); the 1-for-16 debut barn since 2012 does not add to the appeal.
Indygo Andy
Sire is 4-for-73 with 1st-time starters; is the 1st foal to race out of a 1-for-6 dam (14K); the barn knows how to get one ready to win 1st-time out (22% since 2012) and are an even better 35% winners 1st-time out in a maiden claimer; has been working well for this.
Ran to those 46-1 debut odds when outrun throughout; the race looks better now since the show runner Beyered 67 in his next-out DMR-20K-maiden claiming win; 1-for-19 second-start trainer without a significant workout improvement for this leads me to back others.
Just one other race during career on a synthetic surface is his career-best Beyer; was edged by the show runner from last who Beyered 64 in his next-out DMR-30K-maiden claiming win; rider of last pair sides with Wildcat Candy for this.
Wildcat Candy
Rider of all 3 starts seemingly had other options but remains here after favored and beating several of these when rallying from 11th; cutting back a half furlong does not add to the appeal; the 2-back winner repeated in a DMR-starter alw. with an 80 Beyer; the one they all have to hold off in deep stretch.
Money Machine
Improving-career Beyer pattern; rider of last pair lands on Dontextndrive noting Gomez wins 38% for the barn at DMR since 2012; the added distance for last produced a good speed figure but wasn't within range of the top 2; off the debut race looks like 6.5F might be a good distance; wish the worktab for this was more flattering.
Market Portfolio
Big-debut race when troubled at the gate break then rallied past every one but the winner; 33%-winning maiden claiming barn gets an extra half furlong to get up in time; wish the worktab spakled more for this but clearly lots of upside on this one off the 4-1 unveiling.
Major Affair
Blinkers on and 1st off the claim have been good-win angles for the barn since 2012; best Beyer and dirt and best finish on grass seems like a synthetic surface is his least preferred footing; drops 1st off the purchase following a career-low speed figure 1st time on DMR synthetic.
Perfect Jersey
One race going this far was a 10th-place finish; was eased in last when claimed off his 2nd straight career-low Beyer; August 18 DMR workout was a strong morning improvement but defeating 2 runners combined in 2 DMR races has me backing others.
The rail draw was not to his liking in the career debut; 62-1 odds for the 10th-place unveiling effort; adds 1F in distance noting some runners improve dramatically 2nd-time out and he has plenty of room to move forward for this; improved workout adds to the appeal.
Full's Kris S.
A major pace presence in a field lacking a lot of early zip; just did not appear like he was close to his best form in last noting the 2011 DMR-debut casreer-best Beyer; the show runner from last Beyered 67 in his next-out DMR-20K-maiden claiming win; worked well for this and would be a force up front.

Race 3

Akiss Forarose
The synthetic-to-turf move can prove to be a plus for this stakes placed filly and her best effort appears to be right in line with what it might take to win this; she won't have to worry about early ground loss after breaking from the rail and she's shown the ability to adapt to any early pace scenario.
Tiz a Kiss
Sire wins with approximately 12% of his turf starters and multiple stakes winning dam won 5 of 10 turf starts for 254k; she was much improved in her latest start and she might be looking forward to getting over turf; Bejarano has won with 19 of 61 (31%) mounts for this barn in 2013.
She's run well since breaking her maiden four starts ago at BHP, and she didn't finish all that far behind one of today's key rivals in Warren's Rosebud in her latest start; at the very least, she's worthy of consideration underneath in the exotics.
A little concerned with this being her first start beyond 6 1/2f but this really doesn't look like a bad time to find out if she can carry her early speed this far; there is some early speed lined up outside of her, but going to look for her to break running and take this field as far as she can; Gomez has won with 19 of 58 (33%) mounts for this barn in 2013.
Warren's Rosebud
Have to respect her chances against these based on what she's shown us since being placed over turf at second asking and she owns the tactical speed to help her manage a comfortable trip in behind the early leaders; she has the look of a top contender with the hot-riding Stevens aboard.
Joint Attempt
Dizney-homebred may very well still have more to show us with only three starts behind her and she didn't run poorly in her Southern California racing debut in her latest start when finishing behind a couple of today's rivals.
Heat Du Jour
Her most recent start was her sharpest performance to date and perhaps stretching out in distance again was the key, but she's going to need to top that effort while meeting up with winners for the first time if she's to prove to be the one.
Tangerine Tickle
This filly hasn't run a bad race to date and she probably deserves extra credit for her two most recent races when considering the long layoff she was overcoming; she's a little interesting as she gets ready to make her first start in a route.
She's another in here by top turf sire Unusual Heat and like to see what she's done since being stretched out in distance two starts ago; that said, she's facing winners for the first time and a forward move is needed to get over on the top contenders.
Only Josie Knows
Sire wins with approximately 9% of his turf starters and dam won 2 of 11 starts for 52k, including 0-for-1 over turf; she's taken her game to another level in her two most recent races, and if she can maintain that level of form in her turf debut, she can prove to be a player.
Our Heat
She needs to see a scratch from the main body of this race in order to draw in, but she's won three of her last four turf starts, and she's worth keeping an eye out for in the event that she gets to go in this spot.
Blazen All Star
Her two most recent races have been improved performances, including her turf debut in her latest outing, and she might be capable of better than what she showed us last time if she can keep herself more involved in the running early on.
Long Legged Lovely
This barn has been quiet at this meeting, but this mare ran well when finishing behind today's rival Blazen All Star in her latest outing, and she can get herself into the mix against these on her best day.
No Tricks for Jack
She seems to be at her best racing over dirt or synthetic surfaces and this can prove to be a tough step up in class for her after facing 16-14k claimers in her latest outing; she looks like more of an outsider.

Race 4

Here Comes Tribal
Encouraged by the latest improved workout; her sire won 2 of 4 starts and 77K (offspring of Tribal Rule have scored in 48 out of 342 debuts); the dam was without a victory in 6 attempts; there are no winning siblings to mention.
Mostro Bella
A respectable first outing was turned in a month ago; her sire won multiple G1s and 1.77 million while the dam never raced; winning siblings include 23K earner Ten Plush; should be within range once again.
Moving Seas
Newcomer hails from G2 victor Sea of Secrets who compiled 155K and whose progeny have won 32 out of 354 initial starts; the dam won 4 of 11 and 28K; there are no winning sibs to report.
Bold Decision
Sheds the blinkers after getting away slowly in her maiden voyage; her sire won 1.22 million including G1 success; the dam was without a tally in 4 tries; sib to 50K earner Cats on Tour; draws more favorably now and should upgrade.
Ruby Heat
Her sire won 6 of 16 and 142K (descendants of Unusual Heat have won 10 percent of their first races); the dam went zero for 5; among the winning siblings is 15K bankroller Fortyfivewithruby.
Amy Jane
Flashed brief speed against a repeat winner first time out; her sire won 1 of 2 and 33K; the dam won 3 of 16 and 148K; there are no winning siblings to highlight; blinker addition can help her focus.
Sushi Empire
Very fine gate drill the other morning; her sire won the Belmont Stakes and 1.98 million overall; the dam won 2 of 9; offspring of Empire Maker have won 37 out of 350 initial races; there are no winning sibs to mention.
Steady work tab for this new face, daughter of G2 winner Two Step Salsa; that runner earned a total of 1.1 million and his descendants have scored in 4 of 10 debuts; the dam lost all 11 starts; sib to 56K earner Inagotable.
Jojo Warrior
Sudden upgrade to the latest work at five-eighths; her sire won multiple G1s and 1.63 million in total; progeny of Pioneer of the Nile are 3 for 13 as far as winning their first test; the dam won 4 of 17 and 137K; sib to 342K earner J Z Warrior.
Bird In Love (GB)
Draws wide but work tab has shown progression; her sire won multiple G2s and 284K; descendants of Byron have won 1 of 3 debuts; the dam was without victory in 6 attempts; sib to 117K earner Birdlover.
Wired for Fun
Keeps earning checks but will have to overcome miserable post if in; unlucky lass must somehow find a clear, rallying path; she was also entered for Saturday's 7th race here; see result charts for update.

Race 5

Gangnam Guy
Adds the hood for the slight stretchout after a solid effort against some of these in his first with winners; he'll again draw the fence so maybe he's better able to handle it this time and a clean break should put him closer early given the new equipment; with some solid interim drills on his tab the field's highest last out Beyer earner looks to be a big threat today;
Solid Wager
Beaten chalk while trying statebreds for the initial time in the Graduation stretches back out to 6 panels today; wide run did hurt him some in that one and he returned to work well the other day for this; he'll get a switch to a top journeyman pilot and must be considered.
Saw his number put up when nosed in his debut run earlier in the meeting; gelding will step up to face stakes foes in this spot so it's no easy task, but he did offer an impressive run from off the pace and that's nice to see from an inexperienced juvenile; if he gets some pace help and moves forward with the initial effort behind him he can get in the mix for a share.
Better Bet
They changed tactics and sent him to the lead in the Graduation, but after being looked in the eye from the outset he had little left late; expect they'll have Stevens take a firmer hold of him early in this one as speed drawn to both the inside and out of him can provide the pace here.
Mondai Mondai
Drop to claimers and the addition of shades helped get him going in his local debut early last month; colt didn't earn much of a number in that slow heat and off that he looks to be overmatched in here; looms a long price.
Earned a nice Beyer at a slightly shorter trip in his local debut score last month; like the way he settled and tracked before making his run from an outside slot in that one and his number fits well with this stakes field; waters get deeper here but it certainly appears as if he'll appreciate the slight stretchout in this spot; giving him the repeat nod.
Jedi Mind Trick
He's the lone member of the field with 2 wins to his credit and he returned to work ok following the gritty local score over open company runners; he'll move off the fence for this but figures to offer early foot; added trip could be a concern if he gets hooked early with the rail runner with whom Bejarano does opt to side.
Easy Topper
Tries statebred stakes runners after improving to beat open claimers second time out from the fence; gelding draws a good stalking post and maybe that helps but he's going to need to step things up from a figure standpoint to go with some of these

Race 6

Clenor (IRE)
This filly ran to her backing with an impressive run in her first start in America in her latest outing and have to respect her as a top contender based on that performance; note that she's the only one in here with any experience racing over turf.
Sire wins with approximately 14% of his turf starters and G3 stakes placed dam won once from eight starts for 39k, including 1 of 6 turf starts for 33k; she's one of three maidens signed on in here.
E Equalsmcsquared
Limited available data on sire with regard to his turf starters but he was a multiple G1 winner while winning 11 of 30 starts for $2.9 million, including 7 of 18 turf starts for $1.4 million; dam won 5 of 21 starts for 114k, including 0-for-1 over turf.
Sire wins with approximately 10% of his turf starters and dam was unraced; this filly is a 1/2 to Regis (3-13, 46k, including 2 of 6 turf starts for 29k); runner up from latest won next out at Crc on 8/25 going 6f vs. 16k MCL's with a 65 Beyer.
Sire wins with approximately 14% of his turf starters and dam was unraced; turf and distance are concerns, and she's still a maiden, but have to respect the improvement she's shown through her first three starts.
Stunning Drama
Sire wins with approximately 9% of his turf starters and dam was unraced; this miss is a 1/2 to Edgerin J (10-51, 179k, including 8 of 32 turf starts for 146k); this appears to be a tough test for her first turf start.
One More Wild Ride
Sire wins with approximately 16% of his turf starters and dam won once from 21 starts for 14k, and she didn't make a turf start; she has a stakes placing to her credit and she brings a high degree of early speed with her.
Sensational Nikki
Limited available data on sire with regard ot his turf starters but he was a multiple G1 winner while winning 5 of 8 starts for 669k, and he didn't make a turf start; stakes winning dam won 7 of 40 starts for 258k, including 6 of 31 turf starts for 241k.
Pleasant Miss
Sire wins with approximately 13% of his turf starters and dam won 3 of 13 starts for 94k, including 0-for-2 over turf; can't ignore the presence of Bejarano aboard another in here, but this miss has shown ability while earning multiple stakes placings.
Tiz the Key
Sire wins with approximately 11% of his turf starters and multiple stakes placed dam won 3 of 12 starts for 63k, including 3 of 7 turf starts for 48k; 330k purchase enters this race off of an encouraging career debut.

Race 7

Anytime Magic
Rail should not bother him as he won the stakes from the fence last year; the rail at this distance this meet is 14 for 60 or 23%; runner has much more speed than he just showed and considering the layoff, he has a shot to run better here; don't ignore.
Star Rocker
Far from disgraced in the live debut here last year, colt has been very consistent in defeat and he is still going in the right direction; he showed a new wrinkle from just off the pace in last and got a boost when the show horse 8/9 beat state-bred $25K optional foes here 8/16 with an 86 Beyer; threepeat well within the scope.
Sacred Ovation
Since beating 6 vs. softer this winter, this form has been like a well-worn movie; runner will challenge and have aim at the top of the lane, just has not been able to close the deal; note he shipped back to Inglewood after the last race but kept legs moving with the spin here on the 26th; this rider up for the last race, due to punch it in.
Too Fast to Pass
Versatile and dangerous right back; he proved in Florida he can be with the pace and cash and the local debut was a lesson in gameness; he doesn't have to be 5th early on today and nothing wrong with the series of recent drills; respect.
Colt flashed speed and got out of his funk as soon as he got away from MSW foes; connections thought enough of him to try the stakes last time but he didn't want any part of the route or the company; show horse in the maiden breaker graduated for $12.5K, then ran out of the money; respect connections.
Life a Riley
Sadler thought enough of him to try the stakes and if you toss those races, his form brightens; hung wide from slot 11 last time but that was still his career Beyer; could see him getting a nice stalk and pounce trip; contention goes deep.
Scherer Magic
The other Sadler, this guy is trying to atone for flop as chalk; lack of speed is a concern and he did break poorly in last; note the drill last Wednesday was a full second faster than the prior spin; needs a rebound run.
Very Elusive (IRE)
Protected in last but at least he got a feel of the surface; he showed renewed energy in the drill on the 26th and was somewhat flattered when the winner of the stateside debut repeated in a $62.5K claimer, beat up foes in a $150K stateside stakes, then was 2nd beaten a half in the Grade 2 Del Mar Mile; gelding looks well intentioned.
Ankeny Hill
Was in the good hands at Emerald of Stenslie, who is currently tied for third in the Northwest standings; runner that was put up in last repeated in a $50K stakes, then was a decent third in the $65K Emerald Derby; like the series of local drills; the 6/2 winner ran second next out and then won a $40K optional 7/20 at EMD with an 81 Beyer; look out.
Real Heat
Responded the first time for sale but could not overcome the slow start; 6/15 show horse took a state-bred $25K optional next out with an 82 Beyer, lost next pair; another slice?
Lucky Cotton
He has been a bad actor at the gate in 3 of his 5 starts; show horse in last cashed next out in a state-bred $25K optional next out with an 89 Beyer; maybe connections had a spot like this all the time; Gomez enticed, can't be dismissed.

Race 8

Pretty Storm
Debut-upset victory but was later taken down from the win and disqualified from purse money; has been working forwardly for her 1st synthetic-surface start for a 38%-winning jockey-trainer combo; the barn does well (20% winners) with 2-year-olds.
Madame Heat
Sire is 15-for-161 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a 1-for-10 dam (24K) who produced 4 winners from 5 other foals to race including stakes winning-full Mr Chairman (5-for-15, 347K); mild worktab for a 1-for-25 debut trainer.
August 11 workout was right on the money for a 22%-winning 1ster barn; sire is 12-for-53 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of an 0-for-3 dam who produced 2 winners from 3 other foals to race including 4-for-25 West Citizen (40K).
Sire is 13-for-60 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a 6-for-15 Grade 3 dam (223K) who produced 4 winners from 4 other foals to race including 334K-earner Free Brave (8-for-60); unveils for a 1-for-46 debut trainer since 2012.
Belle of the Fleet
Off slowly but came flying to just miss in a promising unveiling over the track; catches a field without a lot of racing experience which should make her even tougher to deny here especially if she has learned to break better 2nd-time out.
La Casadora
Sire is 2-for-11 with 2-year-old debut runners; is the 1st foal out of an 0-for-5 dam; the 1-for-16 debut trainer and moderate worktab for this has me taking a wait and see approach.
Honey Ride
22%-winning 1ster trainer off the rock-solid worktab; sire is 23-for-171 with 2-year-old debut runners; is the 1st foal to race out of a 4-for-10 Grade 1 dam (439K); many positives to fire a good one 1st-time out.
Has been working like a runner; sire is 22-for-292 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a 1-for-7 dam (29K) who produced 3 winners from 5 other foals to race including 53K-earner Distant Strike (2-for-16).
Full Ransom
Sire is 9-for-144 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a 1-for-4 dam (17K) who produced 1 winner from 3 other foals to race (2-for-12 Seven Ten Split 72K); the 0-for-34 1ster barn since 2012 does not help the confidence level much.
Faith Hope Love
36%-win trainer with 1sters; sire is 29-for-243 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a 3-for-10 dam (20K) who produced 3 winners from 3 other foals to race including stakes winner Awesome Son (6-for-20, 201K).
As Rulers Go
Sire is 13-for-128 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a G3 dam (9-for-19, 399K) who produced 4 winners from 5 other foals to race including 1.4M-Grade1 Switch (6-for-24); the trainer is 1-for the last-24 with debut runners.
Sire is 27-for-174 with 2-year-old debut runners; is out of a 2-for-13 dam (87K) who's only other foal to race is Sweets Galore (5-for-21); the 8%-debut trainer does not help the cause at 1st asking.

Race 9

My Gi Gi
Respect the fact that she's a G2 winner racing over turf, but it just looks like she's going to have to hope that a number of these show up with less than their best to have a chance at seeing her number posted on top after this one is run.
Quiet Oasis (IRE)
A little concerned when seeing that her two most recent races haven't been anywhere near her best, but this multiple graded stakes winner is certainly capable of producing a competitive performance against these if she can find her way back to one for better efforts.
Closing Range
She's been a pretty consistent performer while winning five of 10 career starts, including four of nine over turf, but after surprising a field in her latest outing while equaling a career best Beyer Speed Figure, she's going to need a sharper performance to get the better of these.
In the Stars (BRZ)
Versatile mare has shown the ability to adapt to any early pace scenario and like to see that she ran well over this turf course and at today's distance when she made her USA racing debut; leaning toward others for the top spot but not going to count her out of the exotics mix.
Egg Drop
Little Red Feather-owned filly has to be regarded as a top contender in this race after running big against Schiaparelli in her latest start, and that one would merit plenty of consideration in this spot as well; maybe there's some reason for concern that she might get involved in an early pace dispute, but going to look for her to be tough to deal with.
Customer Base
She was a sharp winner going 1 1/4m just two starts ago and perhaps the demanding distance of that event helped lead to the sub par performance in her latest outing; feel that she's capable of putting in a legitimate stretch bid against competition of this caliber on her best day.
Halo Dolly
She's another in here with multiple graded stakes wins next to her name and she's following a similar pattern that led to a victory in this event in 2012; feel that she was much more impressive in her latest start than it look on paper as she looked like a winner every step of the way before getting clear late and cruising to victory.
A Jealous Woman
If anyone in here is going to lead this field every step of the way, this would be the one to do it, but she doesn't figure to be allowed to set a slow early pace and that would be a key for her to have a chance at holding off the top contenders through the stretch.
Royal Empress (IRE)
She's G3 stakes placed racing overseas, and maybe she's capable of better than what she showed us in her first start in America, but she needs to step up her game in a big way to prove to be the one in this spot.
Appealing (IRE)
Her form since arriving in America has been solid, but she's taking her first graded stakes test since August 2012, and she has been beaten by a few of today's rivals in her two most recent races; prefer to look toward others.

Race 10

Go First
Gets the free ride in the maiden ranks after seeing his number taken down while trying statebreds for the initial time; barn hasn't started many this year but they've fired with their limited runners here; maybe he gets a little speed in front of him but he'll need to be used a bit more early with the move down inside; contender.
Time to Go Robo
Failed to threaten first out going a bit shorter a couple of weeks back; gelding wasn't completely ignored on the tote in that one and his lone sib is SW juvenile and 111K earner Unhitchthetrailor so maybe he'll have more to offer with the initial experience behind him, but the barn's other runner in here did defeat him quite handily.
Even to the Moon
Ran big to get the place from an outside draw first time out here and now he'll tackle a little extra ground; interim drill was slow and he faces a foe who has already 'won' a race, but Bejarano sticks with a colt who should be able to make the lead in here and that would probably make him tough to beat.
Electric Eddie
Poor start did him in when only 4 lengths behind the guy drawn to his immediate inside here; barn boasts some recent luck second time out and this guy could get more involved from the outset given a clean start; worth a look.
Bold Fantasy
Failed to impact late in his first out run and the barn hits at a weak clip with its second out runners; colt boasts a couple of interim moves but there's not a lot to suggest he's going to take a big step forward here; just watching him.
Southern Digs
Took a big step forward second time out but his gate problems continued; interim drill was slow, but maybe the move off the fence helps some; will need to get off to a better beginning to prove a legitimate threat, however.
Pray Hard
Took all the money first out and got caught in a duel from an outside draw; gelding returned to work sharply for a barn that's doing exceptionally well here and with the initial experience behind him maybe he's able to settle a bit better from this draw; contender.
Now You're It
Tracked a good clip in his debut run but didn't have enough to go on in the lane; colt worked slowly in the interim and the barn hasn't done much with its limited starters this year; both sibs to race are winner, but this guy has some improving to do.
Slewpy Again
Field's most experienced runner didn't fire from the fence on the rise back to this level after a near miss against claimers in his first local spin; maybe the move outside allows him to settle some and his kick can make an impact at a price, but a minor award is his likely ceiling.
Sudden Rumor
Beaten first out chalk suffered through a rough trip when drawn inside for his debut run; gelding goes for an outfit that boasts sharp recent numbers with its second out runners and the move outside will likely benefit him; he's kin to SW and 163K earner Got Even; with a clean run and at an improved price he must be considered.

Race 11

Educated in ultra live debut, soph has improved since and ran super in the return effort; stakes winning 6 for 11 dam earned nearly $250K, won twice on grass; 2 of 7 siblings won; one took a couple of stakes and banked over $150K, the one that tried grass was third thrice in best turf results; love recent drills, primed.
Cast a Vision
Ran his eyeballs out in defeat three back but has gone the dreaded other way since; multiple beats for a tag and with his style, things have to unfold just about perfectly.
Layton Register
Over 4 clear and note show horse was clear in the CD finale; like the way he was getting to the winner late in last; trainer has spotted them just fine with limited starters; don't ignore.
Corinthian's Song
Race over the course was his best to date and that despite being forced to steady; 5/27 show horse graduated in a MSW, took a $40K optional, then was 3rd beaten a length and a half in a $62.5K optional; due to hit paydirt.
Power Ped
Even with the blinks off, would expect this guy to be on the muscle early on the stretch out; backers can point to the full sibling Power Foot, who took 2 of 11, banked over $100K, was turf route only; long gone?
Candy Ride about 9% with first-time turfers in a 212-runner sample; sire didn't race at 2, was unbeaten in 6 outs, took G1 Pacific Classic, banked $750K, won thrice on grass; dam's lone win was a dirt route; this is her first to race; don't be shocked if this Sadler is sent hard.
Artic North
Due for a trip after slow start before taking overland route; 4 for 17 dam earned over $100K, won twice on grass; both siblings won multiple times including SW, 13 for 32 turf racer and near $550K earner Major Marvel; note it did take him over a month to record a published drill after last race.
Pleasantly Perfect about 12% with first-time turfers in a 121-runner sample; sire didn't run at 2, lost twice on grass, took BC Classic on way to over $7.7 million career; dam was unraced; both sibs won including double grass winner and near $100K earner Major Marvel; nice to see world-class trainer Drysdale having big meet and this runner was flattered when the 2nd and 6th finishers in last graduated next out at this level; he did catch very fast splits; rates upset glance.
Boss of Me
Gelding has run some very similar races; both siblings won, one was a double winner on grass; cost 20 grand, may need maiden sellers to show top talent.
Point and Shoot
Winner of last has been chronicled as to his subsequent races while the 5th finisher in last took a maiden $20K claimer here next out; dam out of the money twice; full bro Point and Shoot took 2 of 5 on grass, banked $65K; finally off the rail, could shock here.
Apostle Paul
Soph may have hated the rail in last; he has the two races to draw from now but may want more real estate to shine.
Citron Kid
Wide in local start but not thrilled with the beat for a tag; he has had some hot splits to close into but just has not quickened in time; must hustle.
Navarre (GB)
Youngster burned some Benjamins in France; winner of the 5/26 race beat 6 next out in a $27.6K fray, then was third beaten over 3 in a Group 3; blood is quality as kin Byword was a Group 1 winner and millionaire and full sis Proviso won multiple Grade 1s on grass, banked over $1.7 million; may be compromised by the post.
Empty Headed
He had some eventful trips early in his career, maybe he just needed the last effort; backers can point to the fact that full bro Mensa Heat was G2 placed at 6 and banked over $500K; would think long and hard before taking too short a number.
