DMR Pick 3 (Races 5-7)

Race 5

Keys

Dancingtothestars, Charm the Maker

B’s

Maker Or Breaker, Lady Aspen

C’s

None

DANCINGTOTHESTARS comes here razor sharp, having looked super winning a strong turf race. If anything she may be better on this (synthetic) footing. CHARM THE MAKER finished strongly in a sprint here after almost 6 months off, can benefit from that outing and this longer trip. MAKER OR BREAKER fizzled on turf but moves to a better surface and may be the controlling speed.

Race 6

Keys

Gervinho, Gabriel Charles

B’s

Rising Legend, Chief Havoc

C’s

Pure Loyalty, Redwood Kitten

GERVINHO came home gamely to win a division of the Oceanside. He has tactical speed and can finish, a nice combination. GABRIEL CHARLES figures to be rolling late and is eligible to improve as his 2nd to RISING LEGEND in a division of the Oceanside here July 17 was his first start of the year. RISING LEGEND has been quite impressive in his only 2 U.S. starts and off a win here July 17 figures tough. CHIEF HAVOC is a G2 winner on synthetic but remember he handled turf very well in England last year.

Race 7

Keys

Tiz the Key

B’s

Exotic Behavior, Say’s Who, Appearance

C’s

Colonel Joan

TIZ THE KEY was a solid, even 4th in her sprint debut here July 28, chasing a promising Baffert filly (Secret Compass). She figures to benefit from that outing and surely from the move to this longer trip. EXOTIC BEHAVIOR got a feel for the distance on turf here Aug. 7 when 3rd. She handles this footing and has worked well since. SAY’S WHO likewise appears headed the right way as she ran on well in a sprint here Aug. 17 after a sluggish start.
