Red Mile Race Reviews

Saturday, September 1st

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                4-5-2-6

1

Richard Traci

Got caught up in a big mile in his first local start at this level, and should benefit from drawing the pole here in his second go around in small field.  Still going to have to pick it up a bit. 

2

Topville Diamond

Was in over his head last time, and drops to a level tonight where he should be able to have some success.  I would expect TS to put him in play early here in small field.  Maybe. 

3

Theshdw nse

Drops in for a claiming tag after coming up short late in his last couple.  I’ll wait for some improvement. 

4

Crazy Dan

Another that lands in for a tag after taking a win off against conditioned company, and barn has really heated up over the last couple of weeks.  That was a fairly solid field he beat two weeks ago. 

5

Thatillbsweet

May have been a little ambitiously spotted in the Open ranks, but she should fit well here against a small crew even though she is taking on the boys.  Has been holding her own against some tough fields.  Must respect. 

6

Don’t Fight the Law

Classy veteran makes his local debut for a barn we haven’t seen in quite some time.  Takes a significant plunge in class as well, and could be poised for a wakeup call.  Maybe. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                2-8-1-3

1

Georgie Mae

Made an early break in overnight company on Sunday, and unfortunately only looks to be a player for the minor awards after drawing back in against another heavy fav in #2. 

2

Raring to Go

With the exception of a break in her last start in the $190k Kentuckiana at Indy, this filly has held her own against some of the best in the country on the east coast.  Looks to be quite a bit further along than these. 

3

Blue Valley

Was offstride far behind the gate Saturday, and now the trainer returns to the bike.  Not sure if she is hard to handle or what the issue is, but I know she has some talent when she minds her manners.  Maybe underneath. 

4

Follow My Dreams

Perfectly driven behind the runaway winner last time, and fended off her rivals late to pick up an easy 2nd.  Appears to have hooked an even tougher group here though, would need to improve even more. 

5

I Know the Truth

First time starter doesn’t appear to pack the speed for these just yet.  True story. 

6

Caribbean Dream

Had a perfect trip following #4 last time before tiring badly late.  Would take a complete turnaround. 

7

Cowling Prk

Hard to gage his OH fair efforts, but this isn’t an easy group.  I’ll pass for now. 

8

Creatine

Beat older horses in the very last stride to win his career debut.  Lands on the outside of a solid group here, but I suspect he will continue to improve with each try. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                3-6-7-4

1

Scootie Best Lou

Turned things around a bit last time to pick up 5th against a solid group, but things aren’t going to get any easier here. 

2

LadyBuckeye

Outpaced down the lane in the opening leg, and not sure she’s on the same level as the top fillies in here. 

3

Doc’s Hope

Nailed in deep stretch last time by a tough rival, but she draws in the opposite division from that one this week.  Likely to be a short price once again, but any similar effort makes her the one to beat. 

4

Cindy’s Flower

We haven’t seen her in a few weeks, and she has a scratched ‘sick’ in between.  Not a great scenario, but she is forced to finish well here or she will miss the $250k final.  Your call. 

5

Park Lane Crystal

Kicked home well to pick up a 3rd place finish in the opening leg, but lands in what is an even tougher spot tonight.  Yet to miss the board in 7 tries this season, but needs her very best. 

6

Poker Place

She was drawing dead last week after she never found room to race down the stretch against a couple of nice fillies.  Was a nice start over the track, and she could improve even more in her 2nd local try. 

7

Keene Angelic

Came first over with authority to blow by her rivals as the heavy fav last time, but is facing what appears to be a tougher field tonight.  Any similar effort should put her right in the mix though. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                6-5-1-2

1

Kentucky All Star

Didn’t have a lot of room to race in that opening leg, but I’m not sure if it would have made a big difference.  Should sit close once again after drawing the pole.  Maybe underneath. 

2

Caribbean Girl

Unleashed a solid final panel to finish up an even 4th, only a half length behind #5.  It looks wide open for the minor awards, and she appears to be one of many with a chance. 

3

Miss Daphne

Held her own on the fair circuit earlier this summer, but we haven’t seen her in over a month now and the Q’fer wasn’t overly impressive.  I’ll watch this one. 

4

Sandra’s onthebeach

Like #1, this filly didn’t have a lot of room to race in her last start, but it is still asking quite a bit for her to take on a crew like this.  I’ll pass. 

5

T B Beach Girl

Got collared early by the eventual winner after having the lead at the head of the lane, but I will give her credit for digging in late and fending off her other rivals.  She is the defending KYSS champ.  Def fits. 

6

Shawnee Dancer

Note the barn change to team Burke off what appears to be a private purchase.  No question they had to come with a decent sum to buy this one, and I’d expect them to be ready to collect on their investment.   

7

Hot Beach Girl

Followed the eventual winner last time, and couldn’t keep up with her down the lane.  Not ready to hop back on board after that. 

8

Miss Lucy O

Had a perfect trip behind #6 last time, and parlayed that into an even 4th place finish.  One of many with a shot at the minor awards in here if things worked out well again. 

Race 5                     Selections                                8-5-6-3

1

Zot

No match for the top colts last time, and it doesn’t appear that things will be any easier here.  Pass. 

2

Rapids N Currents

Tired after a tough first over journey in his last, and hooks another solid group here in round 2.  Not sure he is ready for these. 

3

Say It’s True

Absolutely flying on the end of it last time to get up in the final strides at 17-1!  Steps up to take on some solid colts tonight, but he continues to get better and better with each start.  Maybe. 

4

Sweet Ben

Doesn’t look like a sweet spot for Ben in only his 3rd career try. 

5

Enrico As

Nearly lasted while on the lead last time, only to get mowed down by #3 in deep stretch.  Has hit the board in 10 of 11 this year, and I would expect him to sit close and get a nice trip.  Must respect. 

6

Quel Bourbon

I loved this guy to get a piece last time, and he came out to finish a solid 3rd behind #8.  That was by far the best start of his career, and he should continue to improve.  Anything close to that last effort puts him in the mix. 

7

Dusenberg

Never really had a chance last time after getting caught in the back, and he draws into what is probably the toughest division again tonight.  Should be looking to rally late once again.  Needs his very best. 

8

Prayer Session

I have seen him go some big miles in banking over $308k in the last couple years, but I’m not sure any have been better than the dazzling performance we saw from him last week.  Hard to go against after seeing that!

9

Fusion Man

Never really looked comfortable before making the break last time, and now he needs a solid finish to ensure he makes the final.  Has his work cut out from the far outside against this crew. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                1-7-2-5                    Pick 4 Starts Here                  See Ticket at the End

1

Jans Luck

Nearing in on a million in LT earnings, and has held her own against much tougher company recently in PA.  Appears well spotted in her local debut.  I’m on board. 

2

Kilowatts Fantasy

Used hard last time, and still hung in well to finish up a nice 3rd against similar company.  Should get away well from the inside, and be in line for a nice trip.  I’ll toss her back on the ticket.  Noble opted here over #8.   

3

Dollys Joy

Never really got worked into the race from post 10 last time, but she may be a notch below the top ones in here right now.  Does have over $375k in the bank though, a nice resume for a 4yo. 

4

Dutz’s Charm

Absolutely exploded by her rivals late after a perfect trip to pick up her first win of the season.  I’ll have to admit I didn’t quite see that one coming.  Can she follow it up with another big effort?  We’ll see. 

5

Deo Gloria

Asking a lot for a 3yo filly to step up and take on older mares here in a tough spot.  Certainly can’t dispute that she has been RAZOR sharp since arriving locally though.  Will have to step it up even more. 

6

Hereiam Coolwater

Not much punch against similar last time, and things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Pass. 

7

Keene Supreme

A game try on the front end last week to finish up a solid 2nd behind #4.  Tyler Smith gets the call tonight, and I would expect her to be setting sail to the top once again.  Maybe. 

8

Yndra Hanover

Jumps back up to take on Open company after a tough trip in overnight last time.  Lands on the far outside of a nice crew, not sure I can endorse her against these.  Noble opted off for #2 instead.    

 

Race 7                     Selections                                2-5-1-7

1

O’Rourke Three

Has held his own at this level since arriving locally, and should sit close after landing on the pole in full field.  Anything similar to those efforts put him in the mix once again. 

2

Doc’s Zilla

Absolutely annihilated a field after getting parked a long way from post 10 in what was a GIANT performance in his last.  Makes his 2nd local start tonight, no question he is the one to beat. 

3

Do It Best

Used hard last time, and still managed to hold a distant 3rd behind #2.  I’ve always liked this guy, but even I’m willing to admit this may be a tad tough for him.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Noble opted here over #5.    

4

Duck Hook

The Hook never really fired last time after racing extremely well in his first local start 3 back.  Lands in another tough group here, and will certainly need his very best. 

5

I Ota Win

Showed some sneaky late pace last time, and I think he may have been even better in there if he had gotten worked into it sooner.  Lands in a perfect mid-pack post and the price will be right.  Lots to like. 

6

Unreal Appeal

Mare kicked into gear in deep stretch and surged pass her rivals to pull off a 16-1 upset in her last.  A very nice mile there, but she is stepping up to take on even better here.  I’ll watch this one. 

7

Rocknroll Herman

Keep in mind he didn’t beat all that much last time in our bottom class, but he certainly looked good doing it.  Trainer back in the bike here, and I would expect another off the pace rally. 

8

Jen Finn

Looks to be a tough spot for OH invader, I’ll watch one first. 

9

Shady Maple Bullet

Tired late against similar last time, and things aren’t going to get any easier here from post 9.  I’ll pass. 

10

EJ’s Pocket Rocket

Got the pocket part down last time, but didn’t launch and finished a distant 6th as the fav.  He has had some success here in the past, but it won’t be easy from way out here. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                3-1-6-5

1

Awsome Valley

I actually expected him to race a little better last time, but he lands on the pole now in what appears to be the easier of the 2 divs.  Should sit close once again.  Maybe.    

2

Wah-Kon-De

Appears overmatched against these.  Pass. 

3

Charming Dream

Followed the heavy fav last time, and put in a solid effort to finish up a close 2nd.  I would expect Mark Mac to throttle out here, catch him if you can.  Macdonald opted here over #8. 

4

Horizon Ridge

No match for the top colts last time, and doesn’t appear to be on the same level as the top tier just yet. 

5

Master Host

Got away decently from outside post in the opening leg, but was outsprinted by his rivals down the lane.  Maybe a tad easier here but would still need to step it up quite a bit. 

6

Louie the Fourth

Absolutely perfect 2nd over journey last week, but could only manage a 4th place finish.  I can only endorse him for the minor awards after seeing that. 

7

Joyeux Dream

Held his own against some decent colts last time, and continues to improve with each LT start.  Still asking quite a bit to go with these at this point. 

8

Red Falkor

Followed the eventual winner last time and never fired.  Hard to jump on board after that.  Pass. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                7-6-9-4

1

Abby

Faded late after an aggressive move back to the top, and now faces the best of the best in full 12 horse field.  Should sit close, but would need a LOT more. 

2

Gotcha Girl

Couldn’t have possibly diagramed a better journey last time, and took advantage by finishing up 2nd after following the eventual winner in #7.  Not sure things will work out that perfectly here in full field, but she fits with these.  Shetler opted here over #6.   

3

Dazzling Valley

Followed #2 up in the flow last time, and showed some improvement with a solid 3rd place finish.  Another that would have to improve a lot taking on the best of the best tonight though.  Magee opted to #4 instead.    

4

Lindme yoruvictory

Picked off some tired ones late to finish 3rd behind the runaway duo, and I would expect a similar off the pace journey in full field tonight.  Looks wide open for the minor awards.  Magee opted here over #’s 3, 11, & 12.    

5

Glad Glidings

Didn’t have anything to offer late in the opening leg, and things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Pass. 

6

Gisela As

Changed things up with the early speed last time, but it worked out well as she reported home with a fairly easy win.  She was the runner up in last year’s $250k final to #7, could be déjà vu all over tonight. 

7

Northern Miss Hall

Coasted home to an EASY win last time under no encouragement from her pilot whatsoever.  I’m not sure there is anything that can go with her in here, but won’t be as easy in full field of 12. 

8

Northern Cindy

Doesn’t appear to be on the same level as her stablemate in #7.  Not tonight. 

9

Feel the Pressure

I don’t think there is any question that she will be blasting early from post 9, and we got to see her race from just off the pace in finishing 2nd in the opening leg.  One of many with a shot at the minor awards. 

10

American Saint

Very disappointed in her opening leg loss, as she was no match for the challenge of #7.  Will be interesting to see what she elects to do from post 10.  It won’t be easy. 

11

Serene Lady

Thought she had a big shot at the minor awards behind the fav last time, but she was offstride well before the start.  Not typically a fan of 2nd tier trotters, especially ones with breaking issues.  Magee opted to #4 instead.    

12

Delmary

Trotted evenly in the opening leg, but things are going to get even harder tonight in the full field from the 2nd tier.  Asking quite a bit to go with these.  Magee opted to #4 instead.    

 

Race 10                   Selections                                4-8-6-7

1

Dew Drop Dolly

Lightly raced 7yo hasn’t had a lot of luck since arriving locally, and lands in another tough group tonight.  I’ll pass.  Magee opted to #4 instead, I’ll do the same.    

2

Rome

Gelding has had some of his best efforts over this surface, but ships in tonight after a 75 day layoff and it would be asking quite a bit for him to go with these at first asking.  I’ll watch one first. 

3

Lockup Jazz

Parlayed a perfect pocket ride into a 2nd place finish last time, but steps up to take on an even tougher group tonight.  Not sure she is ready for these just yet. 

4

Like A Dream

Has been facing far tougher company in Indy, and classy veteran appears poised for a big wakeup call in his first local try.  I’m on board.  Magee opted here over #’s 1 & 8.   

5

Sand Allistar

Crushed a lesser crew, but is another that is taking a large step up to tango with some decent trotters here.  Needs even more.  Noble opted to #6 instead.    

6

Northern Photo

OH invader drops in locally after taking on some tough overnight company at Scioto recently.  Should improve with the stretch out to the big track.  I could make a case.  Noble opted here over #5.    

7

Felipe Makaay

Didn’t have much to offer in his last at Indy, but this guy has had some success over this track in the past as well.  He certainly fits with these, and any smooth journey should put him right in the mix. 

8

Paris Pike

Added lasix in the AM, and I will have to say that she looked VERY good in the blowout Q’fer.  Only 1 for 20 LT, but she could be rounding the corner now.  I’ll use her underneath.  Magee opted to #4 instead.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                6-9-10-8

1

Dragon Spike

Raced evenly in his first local start, but steps up to take on full 10 horse field tonight.  Should sit close from the pole, but will have to find a way to hang around late. 

2

Yakkity Yak Jack

Overmatched in his last start, and things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Pass. 

3

Doc’s Zippy

Finished up right where I had him pegged last time, and that wasn’t a bad effort for him at all.  Appears to be a notch below the top colts, but maybe a shot at the minor awards once again. 

4

Sgt Matt

Well beaten by #6 after a ground saving journey last time, and is another that appears just a notch below the top colts in here. 

5

Bugsy Malone

Perfect trip behind #6 last time, and he parlayed that into a distant 2nd place finish.  Not sure things will work out that perfectly here.  I’ll look elsewhere. 

6

Bolt the Duer

Absolutely wrapped up in blowout win in leg 1, and should have no trouble once again.  We’ll get to see the main event next week when he takes on Thinking Out Loud for $250k!  Put a circle around him for now. 

7

Jimmy Rip

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

8

Heavenly Beaches

Grinded up past his other rivals last week after coming first over to finish a distant 3rd.  That mile was much better than it appears on paper, but he hooks a couple of other rivals as well besides only #6 this week. 

9

Caviart Key

A solid runner up finish last week, and he appears to be clearly 2nd best on paper once again.  It won’t be easy from way out here, but I would expect TS to put him in play early once again. 

10

Partner

Aggressively handled in his local debut, and there is no question that he will have to be handled aggressively once again from post 10.  No match for #6, but a major player for the minor awards. 

 

Race 12                   Selections                                8-5-6-4

1

Sweet Valentine

Filly hasn’t been firing in OH recently, and I’ll have to see some improvement before jumping on board. 

2

Sandbar Slugger

Came to a quick halt last time after being pressed early, and this guy continues to puzzle me.  He has shown the ability to go with these, but hasn’t been any good in 2 local tries.  I’ll look elsewhere. 

3

KB’s Brock

Steps up to take on a decent crew here, and appears to be one of many with a chance in wide open field.  Continues to improve with each local start, but will need even more improvement against these. 

4

Mexicali Rose

Dominated a lesser crew in her first local try, and appears to fit with these even with the step up tonight.  I would expect Shehan to put her in play early once again. 

5

Ab’s Beach Boy

Appears to be turning the corner, and might be ready to pop here in his 4th start back on the season.  If he was anywhere close to 100%, it would be a long night for the rest of these. 

6

Presidential Sam

Raced evenly against claiming company in his first local try, and lands in a wide open group where he appears to fit well tonight.  Any smooth journey should put him right in the mix. 

7

Here Kitty Kitty

Tired badly on the lead in her last, and only has one 3rd to show for 18 trips to the gate this season.  I’ll wait until we see her show some signs of improvement. 

8

Ndana Favorite

10yo has made very few appearances over the last couple of seasons, but he has typically made the most of those few efforts.  Q’fer appears solid, and he is likely the biggest wildcard of the crew.  Price should be right. 

9

Blissful Knight

Not much luck against similar company in OH, and has his work cut out from post 9.  I’ll pass for now. 

 

Race 13                   Selections                                7-2-4-5

1

Miss DW Chip

Have to give credit where credit is due, and this mare cut a nice mile to win this class last week under pressure for a lot of the way.  Lands on the inside, but appears to be facing a much tougher crew tonight. 

2

Frozen Assets

Made a break and lost a LOT of ground last week, only to get back down and come absolutely flying on the outside to come up only a nose short.  Mile was even better than it looks on paper. 

3

Patty Says So

Trotted evenly to finish up 4th behind #1, but lands in quite the shark tank tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

4

Red Rocks

Absolutely dominated in his only local start 2 back, and I would expect O’Mara to blast early once again.  Should sit close, and certainly fits with these. 

5

Blueridge Legacy

Has been beaten as a short price in his last couple, and after seeing the 0 for 19 record on the season I’m beginning to think he always finds a way to lose.  Underneath only. 

6

Viking Mia

Not sure Mia is ready to go with these just yet.  Pass. 

7

D’orsay

Completely wrapped up in her local debut, in a field where she was much the best.  Typically a tough task for a 3yo filly to take on older males, but she packs plenty enough speed if she minds her manners. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 14                   Selections                                6-1-7-2

1

Real or Magic

Never wanted to get beat last week, coming up short only a nose to #7 after a tough first over trip for 5/8’s of a mile.  Should be in line for a nice journey tonight from the inside post. 

2

Real Hanover

Didn’t have a lot of pop on the end of it last time, but should be able to sit much closer tonight and could be able to pick up one of the minor awards late.  Your call. 

3

Crime Scene Cruzer

Perfect ground saving journey last time, but could only pick up 4th.  Things aren’t going to get any easier against these. 

4

Chuck Hull

OH invader lands in against a tough crew for his local debut.  I’ll watch one first.  Noble opted to #7 instead.    

5

Papaknowsbest

Perfect trip behind #7 last time, but ended up tiring late to finish 6th.  If he didn’t fire off that, I’m not sure he can go with these.  Noble opted to #7 instead.   

6

Mcstraight

Recently moved over $200k in earnings, and has been razor sharp against top overnight company in Columbus.  Not an easy group, but barn typically does well here. 

7

Jagger Blue Chip

Showed some heart to dig in and fend off #1 by the slimmest of margins in last week’s Open.  That’s 3 straight very tough miles on him though, and he is going to need his absolute best once again tonight. 

 

Race 15                   Selections                                5-6-7-9

1

Blueridge Tebow

Looks like a tough spot for Tebow, plus he has missed 45 days.  I’ll watch one first. 

2

Annrenee

Hung in there to only get beat a couple of lengths after a tough first over grind against similar company last time.  No question a tougher group here, but any smoother journey should put her in the mix. 

3

Silk Sneakers

Lands in a solid crew for her local debut.  I’ll watch her go around the track once first. 

4

Ashley Force

A nice job by Bolon to get her back on stride after a break in her last, which resulted in another win.  Takes a big step up tonight, but she should continue to improve. 

5

Country Strong

Absolutely RAZOR sharp since arriving in town, and sprinted away to another big win last time.  Steps up to take on straight NW with no tag here, but his best puts him in play.  Noble opted to #6 instead.    

6

Jate O’del

Kept grinding last time after it appeared he might be in trouble, and wore down the early leaders to score his first win for the new connections.  Appears to finally be on the right track.  Noble opted here over #’s 5 & 7.   

7

Radical Cam

Had absolutely nowhere to go last time or he would have won in my opinion.  He got beat by #9 in here that night, and #9 came right back to win again.  Always a good sign.  Should continue to improve in 3rd start in ’12. 

8

Springhouse Rebel

Typically closes well when he is chasing other horses, and he finished up a nice 2nd behind #6 last time.  Likely will be coming from far back here, but any smooth journey gives him a shot once again. 

9

Mobil Big John

In career best form after winning in lifetime best performances in his last couple of starts, but faces what appears to be an even tougher group tonight from post 9.  Your call. 

10

Kinda Flighty

Hasn’t had a lot of punch since arriving locally, and gets slammed with post 10 on top of it.  Pass.
