Red Mile Race Reviews

Saturday, September 8th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                6-7-4-2

1

Gray Single Falls

Yet to hit the board in 12 starts this year, things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Pass.

2

Copper Cat

Came up short as the heavy fav last time, and lands back in what appears to be a solid crew tonight.  I don’t think it’s time to let the cat out of the bag just yet. 

3

Smoke Rings

Got smoked at Balmoral last time, but did peel off a win here last month.  BIG step up here though.  Not tonight. 

4

Sax Solo

I was on board last time, and he got nailed in the final strides after an aggressive try.  Can’t fault him for that, but this is no easy spot tonight with a couple of solid rivals on the outside.  Maybe. 

5

Blueridge Tebow

Looks like Tebow is in over his head here.  Pass. 

6

Country Strong

Weakened down the lane last time after blazing through some quick fractions to finish 4th.  Has been solid here all season though, his best effort puts him right in the mix. 

7

Springhouse Rebel

Followed the eventual winner up last time to finish up a nice 2nd behind him.  He looks great on paper, but I’ve yet to see him show the killer instinct and go by his rivals down the lane.  I’ll try him for 2nd again. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                4-7-3-2

1

Rocknroll Herman

Didn’t have much to offer after getting caught up in a big mile last time, but annihilated a soft crew in the prior start.  Will Herman be ready to rock and roll tonight?  We’ll see. 

2

E R Prince Charmin

Used hard before tiring in the last, but has held his own against similar company here this season.  Any smoother journey should put him close. 

3

Noah C

Had a couple of decent efforts here earlier this season, and if Noah is at his best he can go with these.  Should be a nice price as well.  I’ll toss him on the ticket. 

4

Paddy Malone

A couple of very nice 3rd place finishes to kick off his local campaign, and he appears to have landed in an even more comfortable spot here.  Perfect mid-pack post.  I like him a lot in here! 

5

Lock Out

Takes a step up in class tonight after an even effort last time, and lands in what appears to be a fairly wide open crew.  Your call. 

6

Last Second Shot

I’ve tried him time and time again since the meet started only to be disappointed each time.  I DO think he has the ability, but the shot clock has expired for me….  

7

Hillcrest Domingo

Grey gelding has a big late kick if things set up for him, and he may be in line for a nice cover trip here from post 7.  Look for a white streak late. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                3-7-6-10

1

Sunset Magic

Has been facing some tough older rivals in PA overnights recently, but has yet to have much success here in her sophomore campaign.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement.  Loney opted to #7 instead.    

2

Shawnee wind

Overmatched in the $15k KYSS last time, and has hooked an extremely tough group for this level tonight.  Not sure I can endorse him against these. 

3

Quarantine

Romped against a lesser crew last time, but she may be under a bit more pressure to get the job done in here.  She’s been known to make a break or two….Might want to take a ticket or two with her out as well. 

4

VR’s Space shuttle

Followed the eventual winner last time, but was outsprinted down the lane.  Appears to be an even better group tonight.  I’ll pass for now. 

5

Sterling Volo

Scored an easy win over the track last Sunday, and keep in mind the track was extremely sloppy so pay no attention to the slower time.  She can go with anything in here on her best day. 

6

Patty Says So

Patty is taking a drop in class, but she has unfortunately hooked another tough group here.  She continues to improve, but will need her very best. 

7

Rock With It

Regressed into a break at the start last time, but I suppose we can give him an excuse given the fact the track was a mess.  Start prior was ultra impressive.  I could make a case here.  Loney opted here over #1.   

8

Creatine

Lone 2yo in the field is undefeated in 2 LT starts, but moves up to take on some tough older rivals here and lands in post 8 as well.  Might be asking a little much to go with these so soon. 

9

Rome

Has had a lot of success here in the past, but the last start here was horrendous.  Hard to endorse after that. 

10

Frozen Assets

Ended up surging by #6 down the lane last time to take 2nd, but he wasn’t as good that night as I expected.  Lands in post 10 tonight as well.  Will likely be sitting last early.  Not a great scenario. 

 

OVER $2 MILLION IN PURSES

TOMORROW NIGHT!

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                1-4-8-7

1

Whersme luckycharms

Drops in for a claiming tag for the first time in quite some time, and appears to have landed in a crew where he should have some success.  Moves to the pole after two 9 holes in a row.  All positive signs. 

2

Singlemalt whiskey

Finished far behind in his last couple.  Pass. 

3

Scenic Bay

Hasn’t had much success here yet, hard to see things changing in here. 

4

Our Little Pilgrim

Veteran campaigner has held his own at this level locally, and appears to have a big shot tonight as well.  Think you log a lot of miles?  This 11yo is making his 324th start tonight!!! 

5

Broadway Fame

Got off to a nice start earlier in the meet, but he hasn’t been anywhere close in his last few.  I’ll have to wait until I see some improvement. 

6

Miss Bikini Beach

OH invader has only a 57 LT mark, so it would take a LT best performance in all likelihood to win this.  Maybe a bit tough for her. 

7

Mor Storms Coming

Hasn’t had any luck here recently, but lands in what may end up being a bit of a softer crew than he has faced recently.  May be able to pick up some of the pieces late. 

8

Bobo Mcgee

Another OH invader here, and this guy is taking a fairly significant drop into a $2.5k claimer for one of our live barns.  Picks up the services of Bolon as well.  All positive indicators. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                4-5-7-6

1

Sand Allistar

Taking a BIG step up tonight and faces some tough rivals on the outside.  Not tonight. 

2

Sister Gola

Facing some tough company on the outside, I’ll wait for a better spot. 

3

Miss DW Chip

Used hard early last time, and that took its toll late.  Not sure she is ready to hang with the favs. 

4

Don Giovanni

Debuted here almost a month ago off an extended break and trotted to an impressive victory.  I don’t think there is any question that he is the one to beat. 

5

Red Rocks

Another that had a nice local debut, but regressed into a break last time when back in NY.  If he was as good as he was here a few weeks ago, he could make some noise in here. 

6

Blueridge Legacy

Yet to prove he can beat these types, but he always shows up with a good effort to hit the ticket.  I’ll use him underneath once again. 

7

D’orsay

3yo filly lands on the outside of some tough older rivals here, but she packs enough speed to go with these if she minds her manners.  Overcame an extremely tough trip last time.  Maybe a more conservative steer here?

 

Race 6                     Selections                                4-9-5-1                    Pick 4 Starts Here                  See Ticket at the End

1

Show Me Some Skin

Turned in a much better performance last time to finish 3rd on the off track, and appears to be one of many with a shot at the minor awards in here. 

2

B Good Lexi

Got set up  perfectly last time after sitting in the back through a quick opening half, but failed to close a ton of ground and ended up an ‘ok’ 5th.  Will have to pick it up a lot more to have a shot at the major awards. 

3

GD Rosanne

Rosanne has yet to hit the board in 14 tries.  Don’t see her reversing the curse just yet. 

4

Kentucky All Star

No match for stakes company in her last couple of starts, but takes an extreme plunge down to the conditioned claiming ranks tonight.  No better recipe for a wakeup call.  It’s now or never! 

5

Billtown Road

Got off to a great start here earlier this season, but has regressed into a couple of breaks since.  One of several that appear to have a shot behind the fav. 

6

It’s True

Lone 2yo doesn’t appear to pack the speed for these just yet.  I’ll pass for now.

7

Dollar and a Dream

Has had some severe stamina issues recently, I’ll watch for more. 

8

Jazzie Music

Got off to a nice start here this season, but fired a blank on the off track last Sunday.  Not quite sure what to expect here, but she has hit the board in half of her LT starts.  Your call. 

9

Goodtimin Cam

Raced evenly on the off track, but the 2 starts prior since adding lasix were both very good.  I think this guy may be rounding the corner and heading in the right direction.  Should provide value as well.

TOMORROW NIGHT!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                4-3-1-2

1

Tickle Me Grace

Has been decent at this level locally, and should sit very close to the lead from the pole.  One of several that should be in the mix. 

2

Maxaman

Finished up a fast closing 2nd behind a heavy fav on Sunday, and has put in a couple of clean starts recently and may have put his breaking problems behind him.  He can go with these on his best day.    

3

Economic Change

I must admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of hers at Buffalo this season, but a geographical change may be just what Economic Change needed.  Should improve with the stretch out to the big oval. 

4

Klassic Kanidate

Has held his own against some fairly good trotters here this season, hitting the board in 9 of 12.  If something happened to the fav (#9) this may be a perfect Kanidate for the win. 

5

Marisela

If she was as good as she was here earlier this season she could definitely go with these, but she has regressed into a couple of breaks recently.  Not quite sure what to expect here. 

6

Ranggo Kid

Has trotted evenly against similar company here this season, but has yet to show any kind of major speed.  Might pick off some of the tired ones late though. 

7

Whats the Plot

She wasn’t involved in the plot of that last event whatsoever, and don’t see her joining the party here as well. 

8

Cooperize

No luck recently in IL, and things aren’t going to get any easier here. 

9

Déjà Vu Too

Lone 2yo gets slammed with post 9.  No question she appears much faster than these, but she has made breaks in 4 of 6 LT starts and is likely to be a VERY short price.  Worth the risk?  Not for me. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                9-1-2-3

1

Blue Diamonds

Picked up a couple of checks against tough foes in $15k KYSS, and apparently may have just missed the cut into tomorrow night’s $250k final.  Not an easy crew here, but she can trot with these. 

2

Cowling Park

Benefitted from several breakers in that last start, but still trotted fairly well to a decent 4th place finish.  Should continue to improve in his 2nd local start, and should sit close from inside post. 

3

Georgie Mae

Tried to go down the road last time, before tiring late to ultimately finish 3rd just ahead of #2.  Should continue to improve, but still may be a notch below the favs right now. 

4

Expressive Victor

Finished the KYSS with a couple of checks and a similar resume as #1.  Lands in what should be more comfortable spot, but still going to have to pick things up a bit more. 

5

Stirling Bonzai

Didn’t have much to offer in her first try in mid-level stake in NY.  Not sure if she is ready to go with these just yet. 

6

Berto Lucky Star

Looks like a tough spot for her first career start tonight, I’ll watch this one.    

7

ABC Jet

Didn’t have much to offer here in his only local try, but has shown some improvement in the last couple in Indy.  Still asking a bit much to trot with these at this point in my opinion. 

8

Ballet Slippers

Made breaks in both of her LT starts, I’ll have to watch her go around once before hopping on board. 

9

Raven Victory

Debuted locally after a couple of very dull Q’fers on the east coast, but he turned the lights on all of a sudden and sprinted away from his rivals to an easy victory.  Should continue to improve. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                4-5-6-2

1

Kinda Flighty

Made a break at the start last time, and lands in what is probably the easiest field she has seen since arriving locally.  Should sit close from the pole.  Maybe. 

2

Blissfull Knight

Saved all the ground last time to finish 3rd at a BIG price.  Appears to be one of many with a shot in what appears to be a WIDE open crew. 

3

Ndana Favorite

I gave him a try last time, and he tired badly down the lane when he came under encouragement.  Not sure I am ready to jump back on board after seeing that, but he should continue to improve in his 3rd start back on the year.   

4

Presidential Sam

This guy was hopelessly pinned in and desperately looking for racing room in that last start.  It was MUCH better than it appears on paper.  Might be poised to pull off the upset with a smoother journey. 

5

Radical Cam

Another that was pinned in last time we saw him, but he does raise some concern with the scratched ‘sick’ in between.  Might be in line for a conservative steer, but no question he has the ability. 

6

Royal Meeting

Likely to be a short price tonight, but let me point out that he has missed over 2 months of action coming in and he didn’t fire that well in the 2 prior starts with his trainer in the bike at Hoosier.  I’ll look elsewhere for value. 

7

Trouble Lurking

12yo is 0 for 36 in the last couple of years, and hasn’t shown a lot of stamina in his last several tries.  I think this looks like trouble for him. 

8

Awink andagrin

Raced well after an aggressive steer last time to finish up a solid 2nd.  Takes a slight step up to tougher company here though, and would need to improve even more. 

9

King’s Lightning

Unleashed a dazzling performance in the AM here on Tuesday, and has proven that he can hold his own with some decent horses locally.  Has his work cut out here from post 9, but he fits with these. 

10

Here Kitty Kitty

Followed the eventual winner last time and was able to hold on for a distant 2nd.  Not sure things are going to work out that perfectly from way out here though.  I’ll pass.

TOMORROW NIGHT!

 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                5-2-3-1

1

Dutz’s Charm

Lone mare in the field takes on the boys tonight after sprinting by her mare rivals in the last couple.  This one appears WIDE open on paper.  If she gets set up with a nice trip again, it wouldn’t shock me. 

2

Arringarosa

Arrives locally once again to take on our top overnighters, and he has proven that he can go with anything in here.  Again, it’s WIDE open.  Demand value with whomever you choose. 

3

Real or Magic

Raced evenly behind the runaway duo last week, and has raced well in this class each week since arriving locally.  Likely a short price looming though, I’ll try and beat him with that in mind. 

4

Title Shot

Ironically, I think he is about the only one that doesn’t have a shot at the title in here.  Looks like a tough spot. 

5

Real Hanover

Narrowly defeated #3 for 3rd last time, and finally draws into a field where he appears to have a shot at the win.  Needs his absolute very best though.   

6

Jate O’del

Steps up to take on Open company tonight with his stablemate Jagger heading to Scioto tonight to take on a field for $30k.  Back to back LT mark wins, but is he ready for these?  Good question. 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                9-7-2-5-6                                 10-CENT SUPER HI FIVE

1

I Ota Win

Has raced evenly in his last couple at this level, and he appears to have hooked another solid group tonight.  Should sit close from the pole, but he is going to have to pick it up a bit to have any shot at the major awards. 

2

Minks Reiquest

Raced evenly against some tough company in our top class, and drops down to what should be a much more manageable spot here.  Should be very close with his best effort.  Nisonger opted here over #1.    

3

Don’t Fight the Law

Parlayed a perfect trip into a 2nd place finish in short field last time, and I’m not sure things will work out that perfectly in larger contentious group here. 

4

Money on Tap

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to go with the top ones in tough group here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

EJ’s Pocket Rocket

Raced evenly from way back last time, but has yet to show the late kick this year that he has shown in year’s past.  Not an easy spot here. 

6

Unreal Appeal

Hopefully you have been on the bandwagon here lately, because this mare has a win and a 2nd at BIG odds in her last couple.  Should offer value once again, any similar effort puts her in the mix again as well. 

7

Crime Scene Cruzer

Class dropper typically offers a nice late kick, and it appears that he will have plenty of pace to chase in here and may be in line for a nice cover trip from post 7.  Look for him on the scene late. 

8

Out of my Hands

Gelding has wicked early speed, but he is going to have to fend off a full field and some good closers in this crew.  It should certainly be in his hands at the top of the lane, catch him if you can. 

9

Ab’s Beach Boy

Finally looked like his old self last time, and it was good to see him continue his streak here as he seems to pick up at least one win each year.  No question he is facing tougher here, but if he’s good it won’t matter. 

10

Powerful Odds

I can’t argue with the fact you are likely to get some mighty powerful odds on this guy, but looks to have landed in a tough crew in his local debut and slammed with post 10 as well.  Not tonight.
