Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, August 12th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                2-5-3-4

1

Rose Run Monica

Monica hasn’t had much pop in her most recent efforts, but may improve stretching out to the bigger track tonight.  Still going to need to pick it up quite a bit to go with the top ones in here. 

2

Feel the Pressure

Added hobbles for the Q’fer and appeared to hang on fairly easily.  Has made breaks in both of her 3yo starts, hopefully those will help her mind her manners.  Should be close if she trots. 

3

Lindmeyour victory

A couple of wrapped up dominant wins to kick off the meet for this filly, and that should make her the one to beat.  A fairly competitive group here though, still needs her very best effort. 

4

Floating Ivy

Has held his own against similar company in Indy, and appears to fit well with these.  Might be worth a try here at what should be a decent price. 

5

Patty Says So

Very impressed by Patty’s first local try, coming up just ¾ length short of beating the fav that night.  Did finish behind #2 in the Q’fer back on 7-31.  Big shot.    

6

Moreagio

Would take a lot more-agio to go with these.  Pass. 

7

Long’s Sunshine

Mare has been facing Open company down at Bluegrass, and has been holding her own.  Takes a decent drop down here, but this didn’t come up easy by any means.  I’ll watch one over the big track first. 

8

S M’s Terminator

Took a lot of action at the windows on opening night and got pressed early which resulted in him tiring badly late.  Will probably get off at a big number after that, but we can’t use them all.    

9

Sand Allistar

The only trotter in the field for the money condition, which resulted in him drawing the outside post.  Tough task lying ahead from way out here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-3-9-2   

1

Park Lane Crystal

Very game effort to finish only a neck back in $8.5k KY Fair Final, and this filly appears to have really rounded the corner in her last couple.  Looks like a nice spot here, I like her a lot.  Loney opted here over #3.    

2

Charismatic Kelsey

Kelsey looked sharp earlier this summer at Hoosier, but made a couple of breaks and was dropped in for a tag in her last start where she finished last.  Not an overly tough group, but she doesn’t appear to be headed in the right direction. 

3

Billtown Road

Went missing for almost a year exactly and showed back up with a nice runner up finish to a decent mare in the morning work.  Probably will be handled a bit conservatively off the layoff, but should be close. 

4

Towne Believer

A decent effort here on Thursday, but this may be a better field than she faced there.  Going to have to find some late kick. 

5

Milburn

Has had some stamina issues down at Bluegrass, going to need a lot more to go with these. 

6

It’s True

Lone 2yo in the field shows a decent local Q’fer but she is probably not seasoned enough to take on a group like this just yet.  True story. 

7

Already Spent

Never had an ounce of pace on opening night against similar.  Would take a complete turnaround.  No thanks. 

8

Keene Destiny

Looked to have some potential when she began her career earlier this year, but has tailed off a bit in her most recent starts.  Q’fer was OK, I’ll watch her take a start over the track first. 

9

Sadies Scooter

Didn’t have much success in her most recent starts in Ohio or Indiana, but shows a nice win over a fair track off the nearly 6 week layoff last time.  Possibly rounding into form a bit?  I’ll toss her on the ticket. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                2-4-6-3

1

Cashmere Mist

Had a perfect trip on opening night, and could only muster a very distant 3rd place finish.  Should continue to improve with each start, but going to need a lot more to stay close here. 

2

Duolotta cheatin

Added hobbles last time at Big M, and has been in against one of the best 2yo’s in the country in both of her LT starts.  This is a much easier crew, and she should enjoy the class relief for her KYSS prep. 

3

Mergatroid

Shows a couple of nice AM efforts in Jersey, and now ships in for a start over the track before her stakes coming up next week.  Should be sitting close to the lead in her 1st start under the lights. 

4

Don’tcheat onafilly

Another well bred filly from the first crop of Dewey.  She was very good in her local Q’fer, and appeared to have plenty more left in the tank.  Another that should continue to improve. 

5

Caribbean Dream

Tired badly late in the KY Fair Final, and doesn’t appear to be ready to go with these just yet.  Pass. 

6

Doc’s Crystal

Filly was great on the KY Fair circuit all season long, and we have yet to be able to gage her since she has arrived in Lex.  Got pinned in 2 starts back to finish 3rd, and made a break last time.  Still think there is some talent here.  Take a long look.   Maybe. 

7

Delmot

Hasn’t shown enough speed in the AM to hang with the top ones in here, I’ll wait until we see more. 

8

Reve Encore Dream

Continues to improve with each LT start, and any further improvement should put her right in the mix against this bunch.  Your call. 

9

Follow My Dreams

Finished behind #1 on opening night, and now gets slammed with post 9 in a big field.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

10

Peaceful Spirit

Hard to gage this filly from the fair starts in Ohio, but she has her work cut out from way out here.  Pass. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                8-1-7-3

1

Sharpshot Hall

Raced good in his 1st career try, but he was outfought down the lane by #10.  Should continue to improve here in his 2nd career start though.    

2

Voodoo Victor

Far behind his rivals in his debut and would need a LOT more here.  Pass. 

3

Blueridge Adiram

Dominated in the $10k KY Fair Final on opening night, and really made quick work of his rivals at the fairs in his last several starts.  No question a tougher group here, but he hasn’t done anything wrong. 

4

Golden Prayer

No match for #3 in the KY Fair Final, and hooks a tough group tonight.  Not for me. 

5

Deweytrot and howe

Finished the last half of the mile with a flat tire last time, and still finished up a solid 2nd behind #3.  Appears to have gotten over his breaking problems since arriving locally.  Heading in the right direction. 

6

Golden Stroke

Barn was on fire with 2 wins Thursday night, but this guy appears to be in a bit over his head at this point. 

7

Dewey Luvs Britt

Continues to show improvement with each AM work, and any further improvement should put him right in the mix.  Barn has been rolling on the east coast. 

8

Howdy Dewey

Didn’t find clearance until VERY late last time, and threaded horses in time to get up for a neck victory.  I was very impressed by that effort, and is another that should continue to improve. 

9

Alfredo Dream

Was absolutely FLYING on the end of it last time to finish up a close 3rd behind #’s 1 & 10, and this guy continues to get better and better.  Has his work cut out from way out here, but should be rolling late again. 

10

Alejandro Hall

Parlayed a perfect trip on opening night to get up in the final stride to nail #1.  Not quite sure things are going to work out as well from post 10, but he should be leaving for early position.  Must respect. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                6-1-7-2

1

Derby Dylan

Made a bold move from way back into the fav on opening night, and expectedly tired a bit late to finish 4th.  Was a very nice effort for his first career try.  Lands on the pole, should sit close. 

2

Argon Fire

An even 4th place effort in the $9k KY Fair Final, and lands in what should be an easier spot here.  Still going to need his very best to hang with the top ones. 

3

Veloce

Has had some major stamina issues thus far in his brief career, and would really have to pick it up to be close with these.  I’ll pass. 

4

Fox Valley Vega

Hasn’t been within shouting distance in his first few LT starts, and things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Would take a complete turnaround. 

5

Papasgothe bestgo

Held his own on the Ky Fair circuit this year, but really never contended for top honors.  Should find this spot to be a bit easier, but still going to need a lot more speed. 

6

Phenomenon

PA invader has improved in each career start, and appears to have landed in a comfortable spot for his local debut.  This will be a prep for the KYSS that begin next week.  Certainly the one to beat. 

7

Storm Hawk

Another that has contended for the minor awards in the Ky Fairs, and actually ended up hitting the board in 7 of 8 thus far.  Should be able to go with these with his best effort. 

8

Tundra

Only shows one Q’fer, but would need a LOT more speed.  Pass. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                9-6-7-10                  Start of $5,000 Guaranteed Pick 4        See Ticket at the end

1

Victoria Valley

Trotted evenly in her first couple of local starts, but lands in another tough spot.  Needs more.  Loney opted off for #10 instead.    

2

Klassic Kanidate

Faded badly to finish 3rd behind the other two rivals in $7.5k Ky Fair Final, and is another that appears to be in a bit over his head.  Not a Kanidate for the major awards tonight. 

3

Diamond Deo

Added hobbles in the AM and appeared to put in a much better effort.   Trainer jumps in the bike tonight, and I’ll watch him go around the track once before hopping on board. 

4

Vesper As

Closed ground in her first two local starts to finish behind a filly we saw race earlier on tonight’s card.  Any similar effort should put her back in the mix against these. 

5

Maxaman

Actually put in a solid effort in the Q’fer to finish right on the line with #3.  That was a major improvement, but he is still going to have to prove he can do it under the lights. 

6

Blue Valley

Wow!  A big first over effort to track down an undefeated filly in the $10k Ky Fair Final.  I was very impressed by that effort, and she has won nearly every start she hasn’t broke.  Must use. 

7

Marisela

Made her first start off a long layoff on opening night and nearly went down the road to pull off a 32-1 upset, coming up only a length short to be 2nd.  Should improve in 2nd start back even more.  Your call. 

8

Cloverdale

0 for 23 LT for the win, but does have some on the board finishes to show for his latest OH efforts.  Still needs to find more speed to hang with the top ones in here. 

9

Glad Glidings

Absolutely loved this filly on opening night and she made a break in stride going up the backside.  Draws back into a fairly comfortable crew, and should be the one to beat with her best effort. 

10

Peaks and Valleys

Minded his manners and trotted home evenly in the local Q’fer, but actually finished far behind #9 in that work.  Slammed with post 10, and will need his very best in only his 2nd LT try.  Loney opted here over #1.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                7-6-4-3

1

Gettem Gator

Didn’t have a lot of punch last week, and ended up finishing last against similar company.  Only 1 for 41 LT, and would need a lot more speed to hang with the top ones. 

2

Lucky Deuce

Raced evenly to finish only a deuce back in 4th last week, but lands in what appears to be potentially a bit tougher group tonight.  Will have to pick it up even more. 

3

Become Legendary

Back to back wins on the IL fair circuit, and this guy actually shows some decent efforts back at Bluegrass Downs.  Should improve with the move to the big track.  Your call. 

4

Lady Cambest

Making her first start off a 7 month break tonight, but the local Q’fer was superb.  If she continues to improve off that performance, she could be a tough customer off the extended break.  T Smith opted to #6 instead.    

5

Looksgood Onu

Lone 2yo in the field didn’t have a lot of pop in her 1st career try, and I’m not sure she is seasoned enough to go with these just yet.  Pass. 

6

Julie Lou

3yo Ponder filly drops back into the conditioned claiming company after a couple of fair efforts in Columbus.  Barn typically has them ready to roll, needs her very best here.  T Smith opted here over #4.    

7

Country Strong

Came up with a stunning performance last time to win for the first time in his career, and pull off the upset of the meet to this point at 32-1!  I hate to miss the party, and potentially show up for the funeral, but anything close to that last effort should be plenty enough to handle these. 

8

Real Impressive

Put in an average morning effort, but will need to pick it up to make any noise in here.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

9

Lightning Reno

Tired late to finish 5th in his first local try, and things aren’t going to get any easier from way out here tonight.  Not sure things set up well in this spot.  Pass. 

10

Her Misconduct

Took a shot on her last time, and she raced fairly well to end up finishing 3rd.  Ends up in what appears to be a tougher crew here, and gets slammed with post 10 on top of it.  Has her work cut out for her. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                10-2-1-4

1

Kentucky Freeze

Filly continues to improve with each start, and ended up trotting evenly last time to finish 4th.  Lands in a fairly comfortable spot and starts from the pole.  Should be right in the mix. 

2

Quel Bourbon

Was solid in his first 2 starts back on the season, and has the luxury of drawing in a suspect crew for his local debut this year.  Has missed 3 weeks now, but anything close to his best puts him very close. 

3

NiceN Easy

Made an early break last time, and doesn’t appear to pack the speed just yet. I’ll pass for now. 

4

Moma Jeans Crn.

You can toss out that last start, as this filly was far off the gate at the start in the Ky Fair Final.  Prior efforts would make her competitive with these.  Maybe. 

5

Kacy’s Photo

Has had some stamina issues in her first couple of starts back.  Should continue to improve, but still appears to be a bit tough for her at this point.  Not tonight. 

6

Credit Memory

Hasn’t had any success against similar company at Scioto, and would need to find a lot more in the tank to hang with the top ones in here.  Can’t give her much credit in this spot. 

7

Fort Riley

Yet to take off a win in 27 LT starts and only one 2nd place finish.  Longshot status remains.  Pass. 

8

Blueridge Elisa

Yet to hit the board in 5 starts this season, and things aren’t going to get any easier in full field from post 8 here.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement.   

9

Coyotes Drmqueen

Was gapped off the gate in KY Fair Final as well, and never made up any ground in the effort.  Lands back in post 9, and appears to be overmatched as well. 

10

Richesse Oblige

Lone 2yo in the field was in against a top flight filly in her lone start at the Big M, and lands in what should be a much easier group although facing older.  No question she will have to move forward off the gate.  

 

Race 9                     Selections                                10-9-3-11

1

Do Ya Wanna Rumba

Made her first start off an almost 90 day break at OH fair last time, and ended up tiring badly late.  Lands on the pole in huge field, but will need more to ‘rumba’ with these. 

2

RainyDayQ

Raced evenly in first local start, but is going to have to find a lot more in the tank to go with the top ones. 

3

Georgian Jiffyjane

Came first over on Thursday and raced decently to finish up an even 3rd behind #10.  Should be tightened up and ready to go after that, but will need her very best punch to try and reverse the tables.  

4

Yank My Rope

Perfect drive resulted in an even 4th place finish last time, but it would take a lot more to make any major noise against these.  Maybe underneath only. 

5

Frontier Belle

Has been soundly defeated by her stablemate, #9, in their last several starts.  Hard for me to see her making any type of major impact in this crew. 

6

Pocket Belle

13yo mare definitely put in an even better effort on Thursday night, and it looked for a moment like she might go wire to wire as a big longshot.  Should be sitting on or close to the lead once again.  Must find more stamina. 

7

West Coast Arturo

Wasn’t overly impressed with the last try, and is another that would really have to pick it up to stay close with these.  I’ll pass for now.  Stiltner opted off for #6 instead.    

8

Mattie Maras

Q’fed evenly after several weeks off, but lands in against a couple of solid rivals in big field.  I’ll watch the first one off the layoff. 

9

Willing Heart

Absolutely dominated at this level at Bluegrass Downs, before being claimed 2 starts back and heading to the IL fair circuit.  Shows a big 56.2 win from earlier this year at Thunder Ridge.  Really like her to hit the board at a square number tonight.  Reunites with Loney. 

10

My Surfer Girl

Crushed a similar crew including many of these same rivals on Thursday night under absolutely no encouragement whatsoever from her pilot.  Unfortunately gets stuck on the outside in FULL field, but if she is anywhere near as good it won’t matter. 

11

Jo Jo’s Circus

Things really set up well for her last time, but she didn’t have her usual late punch on the end of it.  Drops back in for a tag here, and should find this to be more to her liking.  Must respect. 

Race 10                   Selections                                7-1-9-5

1

Out of my Hands

Blowout win in local Q’fer, and I would expect Kravchak to be on the gas early from the pole.  Anything close to that effort should put him right in the mix. 

2

Springhouse Rebel

Shows competing against Open company in Paducah, and he made a break and eliminated himself early in his only local try.  No question there is some talent here, but I’ll wait until we see signs of improvement. 

3

Realiscape

10yo hasn’t had much success facing similar rivals at Scioto in his first 3 starts back on the season, and will need to pick it up to be close against these.  Can’t endorse him just yet.  T Smith opted off for #7 instead.    

4

Sometimes Eternal

Returned to the races last week after a 14 month break, and had to settle for a distant 5th place finish.  I like the Northfield lines, but not sure he is ready after being off for such a long time.  I’ll watch one first. 

5

Sweetlittle heart

There are bad trips and there are BAD trips.  This filly got hopelessly shuffled back behind a staller last time, and finally shook loose late to finish a close 2nd.  All that said, she takes a bit of a jump up tonight and she appears to have hooked a far tougher group.  Needs her very best. 

6

Electrician

Taken out of it with an early break on Thursday, but doesn’t appear to pack the speed necessary to hang with these just yet.  Pass. 

7

Money on Tap

Was way up the track in his last effort, but lands in a far easier spot on the class drop in his first local try.  No question he fits with these, and could provide some value here.  I’m on board.  TS opted here over #’s 3 & 9.   

8

Rocknroll Herman

Herman completely faded last time, and it would take a complete turnaround to be anywhere close tonight.  I’ll pass. 

9

Yndra Hanover

Had an impossible trip from post 9 on opening night getting parked every single step of the mile, and expectedly tired late against a solid field.  She certainly belongs with these, but keep in mind she has been beaten at short odds here several times in the past.  Worth the risk as the favorite?  T Smith opted off for #7, I’ll do the same.      

 

Race 11                   Selections                                7-5-2-8

1

Fox Valley Blitzen

Blitzen has had some success here in the past, but has really ran into some stamina issues in his last several on the IL fair circuit.  I’ll have to watch him go around the big track before hopping on board. 

2

Trishie Mae

Lone mare in the group is yet to hit the board in 9 tries on the season, but she is facing a far easier crew than she has hooked up with all year.  Wakeup call coming?  Maybe. 

3

Fortune Road

Hasn’t been finishing off his miles recently, and lands in another competitive crew.   Would have to find a lot more and quickly.  Not tonight. 

4

Fox Valley Pablo

Didn’t have much luck against similar in Paducah, and things aren’t going to get any easier in this crew.  Not for me. 

5

Tricky Grin

Columbus invader finished a decent 4th last time, and should improve stretching out to the big track tonight.  The horse that was 3rd in his last effort came back to win easily here on Thursday.   Plenty of options from post 5. 

6

Charmed Beauty

Showed some problems in each of his 3 seasonal starts to this point, but I will say stretching out to the big track for the first time helps many horses.  I’m still going to have to see some signs of life first. 

7

Blue Punch

Followed the eventual winner last time and ended up finishing right behind him to be 2nd.  That was a big improvement from his prior efforts, and anything similar puts him right back in the mix tonight. 

8

Sailors Sky

A decent try on Thursday, and lands in against similar company here in the Sunday night finale.  Not sure he is ready to knock off the top ones, but fits with these. 

9

Under Act

Actually cleared past the favorite here on Thursday after a brief first over journey, but ended up tiring very badly late.  Gets slammed with post 9 now, and has his work cut out for him.  Not for me. 

10

Days Go By

Hasn’t had a lot to offer against overnight company in Columbus in his first two back on the year, and drops into our bottom condition for his first local start.  I’ll watch one from post 10.
