Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, August 26th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

Race 1                     Selections                                4-1-7-5

1

Allgrownup

Didn’t look comfortable early in that last start at Batavia and eventually made a break before absolutely charging home on the end of it to pick up 5th.  Should improve with the stretch out to the mile track. 

2

Youknow whatilike

Trotted evenly to finish up 5th behind a couple of KYSS horses last start, but has hooked a fairly tough crew again tonight.  Needs his very best even to pick up any of the minor awards. 

3

Dew Drop Dolly

Tired late after getting caught up in a fairly big mile the other night, but things aren’t going to get any easier tonight against a couple of very nice fillies.  Needs more. 

4

D’orsay

Talented 3yo may be just a cut below the top tier, but she still packs plenty of speed and appears to have landed in a very comfortable spot for her local debut.  Looks to have them over a barrel here. 

5

Diamonds R Us

Barn has been on a roll recently, and this filly makes her first start locally after shipping in from Saratoga.  Shows a couple of nice wins earlier in the year, needs her very best punch here. 

6

S M’s Terminator

Has had some stamina problems in his local tries, and would have to turn things around quite a bit to keep from getting terminated against these. 

7

Rock With It

6yo makes his 2nd start with lasix, but has been off for over 2 months coming in.  Q’fed very well against a couple of nice KYSS colts though.  Should have a big shot behind the fav. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                2-6-4-7

1

Fort Riley

Hasn’t been competitive here thus far.  Pass. 

2

Quarantine S

No question she packs the most speed in the race, but has had multiple breaking problems throughout the season.  Will she stay trotting?  Yes….No… Maybe.  Your guess is as good as mine.  Watch her on the track closely. 

3

Marisela

Tired after leaving quickly from post 10 last time, and shouldn’t have to work nearly as hard from post 3.  If the fav made a mistake, her best effort would put her right in the mix. 

4

Wesley Gayle

A nice even effort last time in only her 3rd career start, and she should continue to improve with each try.  Yet another that has a shot at the minor awards. 

5

Klassic Kanidate

I must admit, this guy trotted much better than I gave him credit for last time with a very solid 3rd place finish behind the favs in there.  Faces a big fav here as well, but any similar effort gives him a chance to be in it. 

6

Georgie Mae

Georgie faced a tough task in making her career debut against stakes company, but she managed to hold her own against a solid group.  Looks good to go in here other than #2. 

7

MJ’s Wings Away

Lightly raced 5yo invades from Columbus, and has held his own in some even efforts against similar company there.  Was beaten by a very nice filly last time in Supreme Day.  Certainly a shot underneath.  TS opted to #2.    

8

JohnJohn Hilltopper

Couldn’t keep up with a speedy group last time, and I am going to wait until we see some improvement before hopping on board. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                1-6-2-7

1

Ashley Force

Absolutely destroyed a fairly weak crew here Thursday, and since she entered on the morning before her win she gets back in the same class.  If she shows back up with a similar effort here, could be a long night for the rest of these.   

2

Georgian Jiffyjane

Didn’t get a chance to race until very late last time, and picked off some tired ones when she finally got through.  I know she is better than what we have seen here recently.  Wake up call coming? 

3

Move on B B

A decent effort over the track 2 starts back, but she has landed in a fairly tough group for this level on her return to the red clay.  Needs even more. 

4

Cherchez Bluegrass

Came up sick last time in what should have been her first start in a long while, and I’ll have to watch one first. 

5

Scenic Bay

Hasn’t had a lot of stamina recently.  Pass.  Whisman opted to #7 instead.    

6

Baby Blue Pajamas

Absolutely tortured from post 10 against a tough group of $2.5k claimers last time, and this Red Mile veteran should find this spot to be much more to her liking.  Any smoother journey puts her right in the mix. 

7

F K Beautiful

A nice even effort to be 4th against similar company last time, and I would expect another off the pace rally here.  Maybe.  Whisman opted here over #5.    

8

Scootin in Secret

You would have to think she has been facing some decent company in those classes at Raceway, but she doesn’t appear to have had a lot to offer on the end of it lately.  I’ll watch one first. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                7-6-3-4

1

Moreagio

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these. 

2

Rose Run Monica

Offstride far behind the gate in her local debut, but this mare has the speed to do well in this spot if she minds her manners.  Likely to be over bet though with the connections.  I’ll look elsewhere, not worth the risk. 

3

Manaloha

Tired late last time, but he does appear to be improving with each local start.  This is not an overly tough group here.  Your call. 

4

Lockup Jazz

Michigan invader has had some stamina issues recently, and the bigger track could potentially help.  We’ll see. 

5

Faster N Funk

Has shown some ability in the past, but now ships in off a 2 month break and was having some major breaking issues prior to the layoff.  Not good indicators. 

6

Roscoes Rib Rack

Appears to have landed in another soft group, and he did race much better last time than his first local try.  One of several that could win in here. 

7

Maid Great

A nice 3rd place finish against similar last time, getting by #6 in deep stretch.  Should continue to improve in her 2nd over the track.  I’ll take a shot. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                4-5-7-8

1

Blueridge Classic

Wasn’t close in his 1st start back on the season, and would have to pick it up quite a bit.  I’ll watch another. 

2

Kacy’s Photo

Added lasix in the AM, but still appeared to have trouble finishing her mile.  Would take a lot more stamina to hang with this crew. 

3

Maxaman

Made a break last time after making an easy lead from post 8.  Came back to Q’fy decent, and lands in a spot where he could have some luck if he stayed flat.  That’s a big IF. 

4

Kentucky Freeze

Looked home free last time before getting mowed down in the final stride by a nice 2yo.  Lands back in what appears to be a much easier group tonight.  Looks like a nice spot to break the ice. 

5

Rose Run Melanie

Rode the cones to a nice even effort against a tougher crew in her last, and any similar effort puts her right in the mix. 

6

Lil Miss Brinley

Had some severe stamina issues on the fair circuit, I’ll wait for some improvement. 

7

Winky’s Truffle

Lone 2yo in the group has some decent AM efforts, but nothing that really stands out at this point.  I would expect a conservative steer in her first career try.  May pick off some tired ones late. 

8

Ranggo Kid

Yet to hit the board in 3 LT tries, and shows back up after 2 months on the shelf tonight.  Not an overly tough group, but not sure I’ve seen enough to endorse the kid just yet. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                5-4-10-7                  Start of the Pick 4                  See ticket at the end

1

Princess Wendy

I had been waiting on this mare to put in a good effort, and she finally did show some improvement in the AM.  Still needs to prove she can stay flat under the lights, and this is a tough group regardless.  Not tonight. 

2

Kellytuck Yo

Has had some bad luck with the post draws in OH, and lands in our bottom condition for his first local start.  No question he fits in this spot.  Maybe. 

3

KB’s Brock

An even 3rd place finish last time, but he is subject to be overbet a bit back in this spot.  One of many that could win if things set up perfectly for him.  Stiltner opted here over #9.    

4

Fox Valley Blitzen

11yo yet to hit the board in 5 starts on the year, but I was a fan of the Q’fer and he has plenty of back class to work from.  Not an overly tough group.  Ready to pop in here?  Maybe. 

5

Rocknroll Herman

Tired a bit late after a tough first over journey in his last, and takes yet another drop into our bottom condition here.  Any smoother journey should put him very close. 

6

Singlemalt whiskey

Far behind #1 in the Q’fer, and not sure he is ready for these right now.  Pass. 

7

Realiscape

Far back in a quick mile last time, and is another that takes a plunge into our bottom level.  Should continue to improve in his 5th start back on the year.  Must respect. 

8

Lighting Reno

Yet to strike locally.  I’ll wait until we see some signs of life. 

9

In the Money

I gave him a try on Thursday, and he didn’t race all that great but keep in mind that was his first start back in almost 4 months.  Should continue to improve, but he doesn’t have a lot to show for 65 LT starts. 

10

SBD First Blood

Got caught up in a wicked early pace in the last, and takes a substantial drop into the bottom level as well.  Barn had another fresh MI winner on Thursday.  Live longshot?  Maybe.  WIDE open to kick off the Pick 4.    

 

Race 7                     Selections                                1-4-6-5

1

JB’s Cutie

Absolutely exploded by her rivals late last time to pull off the 45-1 shocker, after being pinned in for a moment around the far turn.  Lands in an absolute WIDE open mini-series final crap shoot here.  I like her right back. 

2

Yank My Rope

Picked up a couple of checks against these lately, but going to have to step it up a bit still if she is going to make any major noise.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

3

Pocket Belle

Hasn’t been able to hang with the top mares lately at this level, and I don’t see that changing in wide open field tonight.  Stiltner opted to #9 instead.    

4

Vivianne

Smith put her on the point last time through a quick early tempo, and the fractions took their toll late as she faded to finish 4th as the fav.  No question she fits with these.  Price should be even better.  I can make a case. 

5

My Surfer Girl

If you had told me she was going to be 8-1 in the mini-series final after her first local start, I would’ve told you that you were crazy.  Turns out, I’m crazy bc that’s just what she is.  One of many with a big shot. 

6

Jo Jo’s Circus

Appears to have finally rounded the corner in her last couple, coming up only a half length short to #10 last week.  Lands in a perfect mid-pack post.  No doubt the circus will be coming to town late.  JN opted to #1.   

7

Hoosier GB Diamond

A bit disappointed that she couldn’t go ahead and win off the picture perfect journey last time, as #1 came flying by in the final strides.  If she can’t win off that, I’m not sure she can beat these. 

8

Trishie Mae

Closed well after sitting in the back through a quick opening half to finish 3rd behind #10.  Not a bad effort, but she is likely going to be sitting far back once again.  Will they heat it up early for her?  Good question. 

9

West Coast Arturo

Raced better from the pole last time, but moves all the way out to post 9 now for the final.  Not sure I like that scenario.  Stiltner opted here over #3.    

10

Willing Heart

Dug in gamely down the lane to fight off #6 for a well deserved victory.  Her reward?  Drawing post 10 in the claiming final.  No question she has to go forward off the gate.  Asking quite a bit to win from out here. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                3-6-4-9

1

Blue Star Majesty

Takes a large drop from $5k down to $2.5k for the first time, and also changes barns.  Didn’t race all that badly first over last time.  Not sure I like the drop in class and switching trainers at the same time.  Hmmm…. 

2

All is Saidanddone

Had plenty of pace to chase here on Thursday, and couldn’t make a dent in the margin.  Appears to have landed in a bit of a softer group here, but would still need a lot more. 

3

Irish Big Guy

Hmmm… what to do, what to do?  He never looked comfortable before eventually going into a break last time and now he drops into our bottom claimer.  No question he is tons the best if he is anywhere close to right.  A lot of red flags go up, but I’m going to try him out unless I see something that I don’t like in the post parade. 

4

Megawatt

Ended up passing a few tired ones late in what was a big mile last time, and lands in yet another WIDE open field as part of our $5k Pick 4.  Should be charged up late once again. 

5

Mor Than Enuf Russ

Raced evenly behind a heavy fav in small field, and only finished a couple of lengths behind #9 for 2nd.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post here.  Maybe.  Loney opted to #9 instead.    

6

Presidential Sam

OH invader had been holding his own prior to the last start at Scioto, and I think he may have a shot in here at what should be a decent price. 

7

Hezasonof eclipse

Hasn’t had a lot of success since arriving locally, and he will need to find a lot more stamina to hang on for a piece late. 

8

Theprincess deals

Came up empty in her local debut, and even though there is no question that she has proven she can go with these in the past, it’s hard for me to jump back on board after witnessing that. 

9

Leadmeto thetruth

Followed the heavy fav last time, and was able to use the perfect trip to hold off his rivals and finish up a nice 2nd.  The price was good that night, but you won’t get anywhere near that in this spot.  True story. 

10

Sailors Sky

Flattened out after trying to make a big move Thursday, and wasn’t done any favors with the post draw for tonight.  I’ll wait until we see some signs of life. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                7-3-1-8

1

Springhouse Rebel

Another solid effort by the Rebel on Thursday, but he seems to hang instead of go on by horses in deep stretch.  Lands in another similar crew, and should be close once again. 

2

Paddy Malone

Nearly pulled off the 34-1 upset last time, coming up only a neck short to finish 3rd.  Should continue to improve in his 2nd start over the track.  Barn has been doing fairly well since arriving in town. 

3

Paradise Ragtime

Finally showed some spark last time after leaving hard, and racing evenly on the end to finish up 5th.  Appears to finally be heading in the right direction.  I can make a case here. 

4

Dugan Run Dream

Couldn’t get the job done off an absolutely picture perfect trip last week as the 4-5 fav, and it’s hard for me to play him on top after watching him let that one slip away.  Underneath only. 

5

Theshadow nose

Appears to be spotted in a tough crew.  Pass.  

6

Gran Hiratzka

Raced evenly here 2 starts back, but takes a step up into a bit tougher group tonight.  Not against these. 

7

Jate O’del

Barn starting to heat up recently, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Jate got his act together soon as well.  Needs his very best.  I’m on board. 

8

Ab’s Beach Boy

Worked hard to make the lead in only his 2nd start back on the season, and that took its toll late as he faded to finish 5th.  Another that will pop up with a BIG effort one of these nights.  Is that tonight?  He loves this track. 

9

Roll on Home

Yet to hit the board in 10 seasonal tries, but gelding drops into a spot where he should be competitive locally.  Certainly has his work cut out from post 9 though.  Your call. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                2-3-4-8   

1

Lucky Deuce

The deuce lands inside tonight, and should be able to sit close and save all the ground.  I’m still not even sure that could help him land a spot on the ticket though.  Solid crew. 

2

Jena-Mac Love

A nice 3rd place effort against an even tougher group last time, and now this mare drops into a class where her stablemate was victorious last week.  Any similar effort puts her right in the mix. 

3

Country Strong

Another solid performance last time, although he disappointed some of his backers in finishing 2nd as the heavy fav.  No shame in getting beat by that one though, and he should be close once again.  On a roll since arriving. 

4

Her Misconduct

Perfect trip right behind #3 last time, but held in very well to finish up a solid 3rd at a nice number.  Appears to be finally rounding back into form, has hit the board in 10 of 15 this year.  Must respect. 

5

Electrician

Had a power outage at the top of the stretch last week.  Needs more. 

6

Here Kitty Kitty

NY invader has raced evenly against similar company there, and she does have a win over this track last year as a 2yo in what I remember as an impressive performance.  Should improve in her return. 

7

Black Blitz

Lands in a much easier spot than the shark tank she landed in last time, but still going to have to prove she can go with the top ones in here as well. 

8

Lady Cambest

Should continue to improve in her 3rd start back off the extended layoff, and I would assume Smith will put her in play early once again.  Maybe. 

9

Jazzmarazz

Added lasix last time at Indy, but outsprinted in what turned out to be a quick mile.  Shouldn’t face anything that tough in here, but would still have to pick it up a bit.  I’ll watch one first. 

10

Become Legendary

Ended up 5th against many of these same rivals last time, and is another that has his work cut out for him from far outside without much early turn of foot.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

 

 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                2-7-8-4-5                                 10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE

1

Show Me Some Skin

Couldn’t keep up with stakes company on Thursday, but lands in a much more comfortable spot here in overnight action.  Should sit close from the pole.  Needs her very best still. 

2

Goodtimin Cam

Raced large in his first local start after making a break at the start, and he appears to have turned things around a bit since adding lasix.  I’m willing to take a shot here at what should be a nice price. 

3

Bazinga

Hard to gage off the lone start at OH fair, but he was a well beaten 3rd.  I’ll watch one over the big track first. 

4

Art’s Chance

Raced evenly on Thursday, and appears to be continuously improving in each start.  Not an overly tough group here, no question there is a chance. 

5

Muncie

Followed the eventual winner last start, and raced fair to end up finishing 5th.  Certainly a step in the right direction, and I’ll watch him closely once more before hopping on board. 

6

It’s True

Parked every single step of the mile last time, and expectedly tired late.  I would expect a much more conservative off the pace try here.  Maybe pick off some tired ones late. 

7

Forever Kissed

2yo has hit the board in 4 of 5, and has predominantly been facing stake company in OH to begin his career.  No question he is the one to beat, but I may take a shot to do just that with a short price looming. 

8

Papasgothe bestgo

Closed decently after fanning out wide last time to finish up a nice 3rd.  Has some early speed if Decker elects to step on the gas.  Not sure if he has the best go, but he’s definitely got enough go to hang with these.
