Red Mile Race Reviews

Saturday, August 25th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                4-5-2-3

1

Smokey Lonesome

Tried to cut out some quick fractions 2 starts back here on opening night, but ended tiring badly late.  No question he is better than that, but this is a pretty solid crew he’s landed in as well. 

2

Stinky Sham

Finished up a decent 2nd against similar company last time at Scioto, and barn typically has some success down here.  Fairly wide open behind the fav in my opinion. 

3

Whispers Art

Caught up in a big mile last time as well, and had to settle for a distant 4th.  One of many with a shot at the minor awards in here. 

4

Out of My Hands

Speedball nearly went wire to wire again last time through some wicked fractions, but got outkicked down the lane by a horse that had a perfect trip on his back.  I don’t see anyone that can keep up with him in here. 

5

Father in Law

Appears to have been in over his head in his first 2 local tries, but is another that should benefit from the smaller group tonight.  Hopefully he won’t get caught up in the early pace, might be better off from the back. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                3-6-7-2

1

Raven Victory

Well bred first time starter debuts after a couple of average Q’fers on the east coast.  No question he is bred to go, but I’m not convinced he is ready for these just yet. 

2

Follow My Dreams

Finally lands in an inside post after being stuck on the outside in her last two.  She continues to improve, and quite honestly this isn’t an overly tough spot.  Maybe. 

3

Blue Valley

The KY Fair Champ actually went off as the fav against a much tougher group last time, but really never got worked into the race.  She should be ready to handle these in my opinion. 

4

Caribbean Dream

Handily defeated by #3 three starts back, and off stride in KYSS last time.  Doesn’t appear to be heading in the right direction.  No question this is a much easier spot though. 

5

King Supreme

The king has had a long road to his career debut tonight, and doesn’t look ready for these. 

6

Sara the Spy

Not a bad Q’fer for Sara, and keep in mind the entire trio that beat her were all KYSS horses.  Lands in a comfortable spot tonight for her local debut.  I can make a case here. 

7

Francos Red Rocket

Couldn’t keep up with KYSS company, and now takes a substantial drop down to a more reasonable level.  Should continue to improve. 

8

Rose’s Cyclone

Was only about a length behind #7 in that last Q’fer, but would have to pick it up quite a bit if he’s going to keep up with this bunch.  I’ll watch one first. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                3-8-7-5

1

Lion of Judah

Raced well the first couple of times we saw him, but fired an absolute blank last time.  Which lion shows up tonight?  Lands in a WIDE open crew here.  Needs his very best though. 

2

Annrenee

Rode the rail to an even 4th place finish last time, but was never a threat to #5 after sitting on her back the entire way.  Stiltner gets the call for the first time tonight, still needs more. 

3

Sax Solo

Actually raced much better than the line appears last time, as he was shuffled back to last after electing not to move to the outside early.  I would expect a much more aggressive steer here.  He’s the one to beat.  

4

Mobil Big John

Parlayed a perfect pocket trip into the 31-1 upset last time, and that was after a 4 week break.  Should continue to get better in his 2nd local start, and is one of many with a chance in here.  Bolon opted to #7 instead.    

5

Diannas May Day

Followed the top 2 last time and never moved, which resulted in a decent 3rd place finish behind them.  Will likely look to leave and seek out another nice trip tonight.  She fits with these. 

6

Oat Matt Donald

Donald has shown the ability to beat these and has been facing far tougher company in Indy, but it’s tough to endorse him off those recent efforts.  Would take a complete turnaround.  Bolon opted to #7 instead.    

7

Copper Cat

Held his own recently against similar company in Indy, and looks to have landed in a fairly comfortable spot for his local debut.  0 for 22 on the year, but has hit the board 10 times.  Bolon opted here over #’s 4 & 6.   

8

Mrtnlufr Bluegrass

Actually held his own against some pretty tough company on the KY Fair Circuit this year, and I have no doubt that he can go with these.  Might be live at a nice price here.  I’ll take a shot. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                7-3-5-1

1

Viking Mia

Absolutely crushed in both of her local starts, but now she steps up to take on a solid field tonight in the Open.  Not quite sure she is ready to go with the favs in here, but should have a shot at the minor awards. 

2

Patty Says So

Patty has put in some nice efforts since arriving locally, but is another that may be a bit ambitiously spotted here against Open company. 

3

Frozen Assets

Saved all the ground and didn’t race badly at all in his local debut to finish up an even 4th behind a very solid group.  This isn’t as tough as the group he faced that night, and should be better in his 2nd local try.  Must respect. 

4

Sister Gola

Couldn’t go with a tough field in her only local start, and has a scratched ‘sick’ in between now as well.  Not positive indicators. 

5

Miss DW Chip

11yo mare put in a solid effort last time, and nearly held off #7 in there for 2nd.  No question she should be headed right back to the front end again tonight.  Catch her if you can. 

6

Altesse

Held her own against claiming company in Columbus, but this might be a bit tougher group than she has been facing up there.  Would need her very best. 

7

Blueridge Legacy

Well beaten as a heavy fav in his last start, but lands in against an even softer crew tonight at least on paper.  I can’t stand short prices, but looks tough getting around him in this spot. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                8-6-3-7

1

Major Worries

Appears to have some major worries once again.  Pass. 

2

Money on Tap

A solid effort to pick up 3rd against similar company last week, and lands in what appears to be a WIDE open crew tonight.  Any similar effort should put him right in the mix once again. 

3

Title Shot

I must admit that I was very impressed by his local debut, coming up only a neck short to RH who came back to finish 2nd in the Open last week.  Short price looming though, may try and beat him with that in mind. 

4

Shady Maple Bullet

Nice 2nd place finish at S’field last time, but this is a LOT tougher company than he faced there.  I’m not sure he’s ready for these just yet. 

5

O’Rourke Three

Rode the rail to take 2nd last week, in what was a much better effort than his first local try.  Plenty of back class here with over $635k in the bank.  No question he fits with these. 

6

Duck Hook

Dug in and fought for a dead game win here 2 starts back on an off track.  Never got worked into it last time at Scioto, but he can go with these on his best day.  Price should be right as well.    

7

Hillcrest Domingo

Closed very well to hit the board at a big number last time, and will likely try another off the pace rally with the speed inside of him tonight.  Continues to improve with each start.  Maybe. 

8

I Ota Win

May have been trying to set the track record last week as he went to the front and never once thought of looking back through a sizzling 54.2 half.  Still hung in there until very late.  Could win at a nice price. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                3-1-8-9                    Start of the Pick 4                  See ticket at the end

1

Jazzie Music

Added lasix and nearly pulled off the 38-1 shocker after facing pressure all the way in her local debut, and lands on the pole in what should be an even easier spot here.  All positive indicators. 

2

Dollar and a Dream

I’ve got plenty of dreams, now I just need some dollars to go with it.  Mare is 0 for 30 LT, and not sure I can dream up a scenario where she wins here. 

3

Billtown Road

5yo should continue to improve tonight in his 3rd start back on the year, and only the 4th start of his career.  Finished up a game 2nd last time, and tends to kick home well.  Lots to like.  Loney opted here over #10.    

4

GD Rosanne

Yet to hit the board in 12 LT starts, and would have to find a lot more to reverse that trend here. 

5

B Good Lexi

Finished up an even 4th last time, but was far behind #3 in there.  Probably about the best she could hope for again in here. 

6

Alluring Art

Barn has been rolling and won with some bombers already this meet, but this filly is yet to fire an above average effort.  Not an overly tough crew, but would have to find some more pop on the end of it. 

7

Looksgood Onu

Lone 2yo in the field should continue to improve here in her 4th LT start, but is still probably not ready to make any major noise against these. 

8

Already Spent

No question this is the easiest field this mare has seen since arriving locally.  This should be much more to her liking, and I could see her taking home a big piece. 

9

Doc’s Coco

Coco did exactly what was expected of her last time, and finished up with a nice 3rd place finish.  Certainly not done any favors with the post draw, but she should be close with a good clean run at them. 

10

Shirleybaerg

No luck in her first go around, and things aren’t going to get any easier from way out here.  Pass.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                8-6-9-2   

1

Beach Bandit

No question the easiest field the bandit has seen since arriving locally, and this appears to be an absolute crap shoot on paper.  He should be able to go with these.  Demand value with whomever you choose.  TS opted to #6. 

2

Loco for Cocoa

I’m certainly not loco over that last Q’fer at The Meadows or the 1 for 17 LT record, but this is an almost now or never scenario for this guy.  If he’s ever going to get another win, this is the spot. 

3

Addison

Far back against a much tougher group last time, and drops down to a level where he should be more competitive here.  Grey gelding is still going to have to find a little more pop on the end of it though. 

4

Miss Kelley Lynne

Tough to gage off the IL fairs, but I will point out that this mare does show a win earlier this year at Maywood in 57.3.  Is she ready to go with these?  Wish I knew.  I’ll watch one first. 

5

Artistic Dynasty

A nice even effort in her 1st local try, and lands in against an even softer crew here for round 2.  Yet another that has a big shot in here.  Your call. 

6

Mexicali Rose

How did this mare end up the ML fav you might ask?  Well someone had to be the fav and she does show taking on far tougher company in Chi-town.  A couple of solid efforts at OH fairs.  Should be a nice spot for her. 

7

Rainy Day Q

Takes a class drop into our bottom condition, but still going to have to find some stamina to hang around late. 

8

Lock Out

Looked to be home free last time, but a longshot snuck up the inside late to go by him.  Track was off a bit that night as well.  Price should be right, I’m willing to take a shot on him against these.   

9

Awink andagrin

Parked every step against much tougher company last time, and I firmly believe any smoother journey would put him right in the mix here.  This race is probably going to be won by who gets the best trip.  Again, WIDE open. 

10

Whersme luckycharms

NO question he has the talent to beat these, but this guy looked horrible in his local debut.  Not sure if they’ve got him lined out yet or not.  Take a long look at him on the track and watch the toteboard. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                1-6-2-3

1

Winchester

No match for some of the nicest colts in OH last time in $22k stake, but lands in against far softer company for his local debut.  Lands on the pole as well.  I’m on board. 

2

Dancing in Terror

2yo swung about 7-wide at the top of the lane and sprinted by most of his rivals to finish up a nice 2nd in his career debut.  Should continue to improve in his 2nd LT try tonight. 

3

Argon Fire

No match for a solid set of stakes colts in $15k KYSS Sunday, but drops down to a more comfortable level.  Should be much closer here. 

4

Real Impressive

Yet to hit the board in 10 seasonal starts, I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Wheelie Fast

Raced evenly to finish 5th last time, but this appears to be an even tougher group on paper.  Never been 1-2 in 32 career tries.  Don’t see him snapping that streak here. 

6

Big Man Clyde

I was very impressed by the AM work 2 back, but he completely came to a stop against stakes company last time.  Shouldn’t have to work nearly as hard here though.  Big shot. 

7

Perfect Truth

I was overly impressed with this filly continuing to fight all the way to the finish after getting parked every step of the mile last time.  Any smoother journey puts her in play here.  That’s the truth.   

8

Im Bashful in Away

Parked with cover the entire mile last time, after beating a pretty suspect crew in her local debut.  Not an easy field she faces here.  Needs more. 

9

Doc’s Mocha

We haven’t seen her in almost a month after finishing far back in the KY Fair.  I’ll watch one first.  

10

Swingin B

Not a bad effort last time but she had every opportunity in the world to go by her rivals after swinging out wide at the top of the lane.  Faces a solid crew here, and slammed with post 10.  Pass. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                6-10-8-5

1

Kinda Flighty

Yet another great betting race, and this mare lands on the pole in a spot that she should find a bit easier than her last.  Still would need her very best.  Your call.  Loney opted here over #’s 3 & 8.      

2

Skyway Scoot

Moves from mid-level claiming ranks to mid-level condition ranks, and actually appears to fit better with these than the claimers she faced in her last couple.  Another that will have to have her very best punch though. 

3

Averylu

Lone 3yo in the field came from way back last time to pick up the pieces and finish 3rd.  She certainly fits with this crew.  Should sit closer from post 3.  Loney opted to #1 instead.    

4

Sassy Kathys Girl

Came up short against similar last time, and I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

5

Last Scnd Shot

Picked off some tired ones late last time to finish 4th, but he hasn’t fired anywhere near where I expected him to at this point.  This is the easiest spot he has faced since arriving locally though.  Wakeup call coming? 

6

Do It Best

Was going to win last time in my opinion, but was hopelessly locked in on the rail and had to settle for 2nd.  I don’t think he will have that problem tonight.  Whisman should step right on the gas, catch him if you can. 

7

Take a Shot Scott

Has held his own against similar in recent times, and is another that has proven he can go with this kind.  I wouldn’t blame you for taking a shot, but we can’t use them all! 

8

Sandbar Slugger

Had a perfect trip behind the eventual runner up in his only local start 2 back, and quit badly late to finish up the track.  Rebounded with a big effort at OH fair in last.  Which slugger comes to town tonight?  CL opted to #1.   

9

Blue Punch

Likely to be coming from FAR back, but typically always offers a fairly nice late kick.  Just not sure things are going to set up well for him in competitive field from outside post. 

10

Doc’s Zilla

Barn won with a bomber here last week, and I have no doubt that Zilla has the ability to go with this crew.  Tough assignment from post 10, and Sturgeon will have to work him into the race.  Price is right though. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                8-6-5-4

1

Dutz’s Charm

Raced evenly against similar company last time, but keep in mind that was only a 5 horse field.  Picks up the services of Loney here, but still going to need her very best punch. 

2

Premier Cami Cane

Tired late after setting a quick early tempo in her first local try, and then came up sick last week.  I’ll watch one before endorsing her. 

3

Lima Daydream

No question that was an impressive 26.3 kicker to finish up a close 2nd in $16k stake last time, but 3yo steps up to take on a competitive group of older mares here.  Short price looming, I’ll look elsewhere. 

4

ThatillB Sweet

Used hard from post 10 last time to make the lead, and still dug in gamely late to hold 3rd in what ended up being a big mile.  Lands in a perfect mid-pack post tonight.  Stiltner has plenty of options.  Maybe. 

5

Hereiam Coolwater

Moved first over into a wicked pace and got by the tiring leaders only to be collared by the closers and finish 4th in her last attempt.  Any smoother journey should put her right in the mix. 

6

Kilowatts Fantasy

Unleashed a nice final quarter but still ended up a ½ length short after her rivals got the jump on her in small field.  Could be in line for a nice cover trip from post 6, and should have plenty more pace to chase.  Big shot.  

7

Sexy Smile

Appeared uncontrollable in parking out a couple of rivals through a blistering 54.2 half in her last, but she showed some heart to hang on for 4th in there.  Kravchak going to have to find a way to ration out the speed. 

8

Keene Supreme

Red Mile veteran has held her own against similar company in OH recently, and is another with a big chance in WIDE open crew.  Great betting race! 

9

Tiaras Bluff

Saved ground for a nice 3rd place finish in her prior local start, but has her work cut out for her in wide open field from post 9.  Needs her very best. 

10

Dollys Joy

It certainly speaks to the competitiveness of this race, when last weeks winner is 8-1 ML from post 10.  Looked great winning, but had a picture perfect journey and hard to see that happening from way out here. 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                6-7-5-4-1                 10-CENT SUPER HI FIVE

1

Papaknowsbest

Tired badly late after getting parked every step of the mile.  That won’t happen tonight from post 1, as he should be in line for a nice trip close to the pace.  Maybe.  Stiltner opted here over #2.   

2

Crime Scene Cruzer

Got set up perfectly last time, but still sprinted by his rivals late for an easy win.  Big step up to take on Open company though.  Not quite sure he is ready for these just yet.  Stiltner opted to #1 instead.    

3

Idbegoodatthat

Wow!  5yo blew by his rivals around the far turn and opened up for a dominant win in a new LT best time of 52.4.  Big step up to take on Open company from the claiming ranks, but he deserves the chance after that. 

4

Real or Magic

Things appeared to set up perfectly last week after he got a quick early pace to close into, but the heavy fav failed to fire and was a disappointing 3rd in my opinion.  He certainly fits with these though. 

5

Minks Request

Toss out that last effort, as he got his tire flattened just past the opening quarter.  With that in mind, he could potentially hit the board in here at a big number.  Underneath only. 

6

Jagger Blue Chip

Vicious on the front end last time, making quick work of his rivals to win by almost 3 lengths after facing pressure the entire way.  Nearing in on $300k for his career! 

7

Real Hanover

Dove down to the inside very late last time to snatch the place spot behind #6.  Continues to improve with each local try, but faces a tough group once again.  A classy veteran with over $461k in the bank.  Your call. 

8

Blueridge Straight

A nice well rated mile to score an easy win against weaker, but steps back up to take on some tough customers here.  Not sure I’m ready to jump back on board against these. 

9

Bar B’s Apache Cam

Looked for a moment like he was going to get a BIG piece last week at odds of 142-1!  Flattened out a bit in deep stretch, but still not a bad effort.  However, has his work cut out from post 9 tonight.  Pass.
