Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, October 7th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                4-1-2

1

Anndrovette

Richest mare in the field has put together a solid campaign against the very top older mares in North America.  Any of these could win on their best day.  Likely to be decided by how the race develops.  Your call. 

2

Swinging Beauty

Nearly pulled off a 72-1 shocker in the $395k Milton last time after getting a sizzling pace to chase from far back.  Should sit much closer here in short field.  Needs her very best punch. 

3

Ginger and Fred

Another that came absolutely flying on the end of that last mile from far back.  Continues to pile up earnings, and is another with a shot here in the wide open short field.  Maybe. 

4

Drop the Ball

Tired late after being used extremely hard last time in Canada, but has probably been the most consistent mare on the top level all season.  She has wicked speed when she is on top of her game. 

5

Rocklamation

Perfectly piloted to a win in the $395k Milton last time in a new LT best.  She can race from on or off the pace, plenty of options here for Morrill but I would expect an aggressive steer here in short field. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                6-4-3-2

1

Rome

Showed a bit of improvement last time, but still appears to be a notch or two below the favs in here.  Pass. 

2

Mikesbrother frank

A decent effort here last week against similar, but he was no match for #6 down the lane.  Would still need to pick things up quite a bit to make any major noise against these. 

3

Air Stewart

Towed into it perfectly as the fav last week, but was unable to rally past his rivals down the lane.  Not sure he is ready to go with the fav in here, but certainly a shot for the minor awards.  Campbell opted here over #1.    

4

Red Rocks

Showed plenty of heart last week to dig in down on the inside and outfight his rivals down the lane.  Hooks a tough rival here in #6, will have to improve even more. 

5

JJ’s Beat the Rap

Lost all chance after a break at the start last week, and I’m not sure he packs the speed to hang with the top ones in this crew. 

6

Mr Chicago

Ultra impressive effort last week to draw away to an easy win in a new LT best.  Lightly raced 3yo appears to have finally put it all together.  Hard to go against after seeing that.  Must respect. 

7

Countmy muscles

Tired badly down the lane after blasting early last week, and stamina appears to be the main concern.  Not today. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                7-6-1-3

1

On The Bright Side

Dug in gamely down the lane last week to fend off her rivals, but appears to have hooked a bit tougher crew here in opening heat of Filly Futurity.  Needs to step it up even more.  Gingras opted to #7 instead.    

2

Canadian Justice

Came first up fairly early last week against #1, and never really threatened for any of the major awards as she tired down the lane to finish behind the top trio.  Things aren’t going to get any easier here. 

3

Oasis Dream

Absolutely flying on the end of it after shaking loose late last time to finish up a close 3rd behind #6.  Appears to be heading in the right direction now, any smoother journey puts her close once again. 

4

Can’t Have My Moni

Daughter of the great Moni Maker, but she is yet to prove that she can hang with the best stakes fillies in the country.  Appears to be a tough spot for her, especially after consecutive breaks. 

5

Real Babe

Lost all chance with an untimely break at the start here last week, and is another that would really have to step things up to hang with the top ones today. 

6

Chilitoday hotamale

Roared by her rivals down the lane here last week after getting set up perfectly with plenty of pace to chase.  Not sure things will set up that perfectly here, but her best effort still puts her squarely in the mix. 

7

Superstar Hanover

Tired badly after getting caught up in the quick early pace last week, but she has proven that she can hold her own on the top level all season.  Needs a big rebound here.  Gingras opted here over #1, I’ll do the same.    

 

Race 4                     Selections                                5-1-4-3

1

Valdonna

Made a break when trying to keep up with the top fillies last week, and will likely be chasing a quick pace in here once again.  Should be able to pick off some of her rivals down the lane if she keeps her mind on business.

2

D’orsay

Perfect trip behind the eventual winner here last week, but lands in a much more difficult spot here.  Would have to find a lot more speed to hang with the top ones in here. 

3

Bluff`

Amazing recovery after losing at least 10 lengths at the start last week, and I don’t think there is any question she will be blasting to the top in here if she minds her manners.  May get a nice trip behind #6. 

4

Personal Style

Made a break while in the middle of a move on the far turn last week, and has been a fringe player on the national stakes scene all year.  I would expect an off the pace try again here, may pick up some of the pieces late. 

5

Check Me Out

Yet another World Record performance last week!  An Amazing Filly!  Connections say she will continue to race for years to come, we can only hope to be that lucky!  May get a big pace to chase here, can she break her own WR yet again? 

6

Win Missy B

Blazed through some quick fractions here last week, an expectedly tired a bit late.  Likely to blast once again here, plenty of early speed in here with #3 as well. 

7

Dream On Hanover

No match for the top pair last week, and benefitted from a lot of breakers to hold the show spot.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit to hang closer to this crew. 

 

 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                3-1-5-2

1

Little Brown Fox

Ultra consistent all season long in hitting the board in 12 of 13.  Nailed in the final stride last week by the colt that set on his back.  Lands on the pole, no question he is the one to beat. 

2

Another Amaretto

Almost lasted down the lane last week after an aggressive steer from his pilot, still a fantastic effort to finish up 2nd.  Appears to be rounding the corner at the right time.  Will need his very best once again. 

3

Gym Tan Laundry

Trainer Noel Daley said a tire was completely messed up early during the mile last week, so that explains the conservative steer and 4th place finish.  No question he can go with these on his best day, may offer value. 

4

Lindys Jersey Boy

Lost all chance with a break at the start last week, and hasn’t proven that he can go with the best of the best just yet.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Archangel

A victim of circumstances in the $225k NYSS Final, as he not only had to deal with post 8 but also a driving rain storm that had just started.  Needs a big rebound here, connections opt to go with Tetrick as well. 

6

Fogelberg

Arrives locally after consecutive breaks and lands in a shark tank.  Not today. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                7-2-6-1

1

Solvato

Ended up with a picture perfect journey behind #7 last week, and parlayed that into a nice runner up finish.  Should sit very close from the pole once again.  Maybe. 

2

Appomattox

Connections were high on this guy last week, and he responded with probably the biggest mile of his career.  Lands in an ultra competitive crew here, will have to improve even more. 

3

Magic Tonight

Has held his own against the top level all season, but is coming off a scratched sick and almost a month on the shelf prior to today.  Will we get his best effort?  Not sure. 

4

Money on my Mind

Perfectly piloted last time to nail the heavy fav in the final stride at 19-1!  AM will likely put him in play early, any further improvement puts him squarely in the mix once again. 

5

My MVP

Couldn’t go by for the win as a heavy fav in LC action last week, and now lands in against the best of the best here.  Did finish 3rd earlier this summer in $1.5 million Hambo, but if he couldn’t beat them last week…

6

Banker Volo

Unleashed a big rally down the lane last week to finish up a close 3rd behind #4.  Likely to be coming from off it once again, in a field packed with early speed.  Needs his very best punch here. 

7

Guccio

Appears to have really turned the corner since adding hobbles 3 starts back in Canada, he was wrapped up down the lane last week in sprinting away with a 26.1 kicker.  I’m on board once again.

Race 8                     Selections                                7-10-3-6

1

Arc De Triumph

Arrives locally after over a month on the shelf, not sure he packs the speed to hang with the favs in here. 

2

Defying Gravity

Sprinted home fairly well here last week against similar company, but he is going to have to improve even more to contend for any of the major awards. 

3

One Through Ten

Raced evenly in his last 2 starts since joining a new barn, and finally drops out of stakes company in what should be a much more manageable spot.  Not an easy crew though, still needs his very best.  D. Miller opted here over #5.   

4

Maytime Terror

Avoided the breaker (#10) in front of him for the most part last week, and finished up a solid 2nd after the nice journey.  Appears to be one of several with a big shot in here. 

5

Arringarosa

Rode the cones here last week en route to a close 3rd place finish.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post, but a solid group here in big bulky field.  D. Miller opted to #3 instead.   

6

Big Jer

MI champ was outpaced down the lane last week, but he does get a touch of post relief here in post 6 today.  Maybe a more aggressive steer here, doesn’t appear to be a ton of speed inside him.  Price should be right. 

7

Fiveknuckle shuffle

How did we let a horse that had never missed the board get off at 20-1 last week?  No seriously, how?  Dead game off the layoff last time, should continue to improve even more here. 

8

Intervention

Raced evenly from far back last week, and may get an even better pace to chase here in huge 11 horse field.  Still going to have to find a bit more.  A. Miller opted to #10 instead.     

9

Yakkity Yak Jack

Hug in there for a long way after coming first over last week, but ends up stuck way out in post 9 here against a similar crew.  Not sure I like how things set up for him here. 

10

Dutch Richman

Took a bad step and went into a break in the blink of an eye last week as a heavy fav.  No question he has the ability to go with this crew, only option is to blast from way out here.  Needs a big rebound.  AM chose over #8.   

11

Iron N Steel

OH invader appears overmatched against these.  Pass.

Race 11                   Selections                                7-3-2-5

1

Louie the Fourth

We haven’t seen him in almost 45 days now, and not sure he is ready to go with the top ones in this crew. 

2

Zot

Flying in the final sixteenth last week, only to come up a nose short.  Lands back in another similar crew here, should sit close once again from inside post.  Lachance opted to #7 instead.   

3

Say It’s True

Finished up a nice 2nd behind a solid 3yo last week, will likely be looking to pick up the pieces late again in here. 

4

Wheels

Closed well alongside #2 down the lane last week, finishing up less than a length behind the winner.  Still not sure he is ready to go with the top ones in here, needs to pick it up even more. 

5

The Lindy Reserve

Appeared en route to an easy win as he cleared past the half but was unable to go with the eventual winner down the lane as the heavy fav.  May look for a more conservative steer here, his best puts him in the mix. 

6

Bristol

Sprinted home on closing night of our overnight meet to finish up a close 2nd, but appears to have hooked a much tougher group today.  Not sure he is ready to go with the top ones in this crew. 

7

Modern Family

Finished behind a couple of nice colts in the Bluegrass last week after adding lasix prior.  Lands in what should be a much more comfortable spot here.  I’m on board.  Lachance opted here over #2.      

 

RACE 12 – RACE OFF, IF NECESSARY 3RD HEAT

 

Race 13                   Selections                                5-4-6-1

1

Arch Madness

$3.6 million earner was no match for #4 last week, but may get to race from behind his main rivals here.  Ultra consistent throughout his career, hitting the board in 12 of 13 on the season.  His best puts him close. 

2

Wishing Stone

The 2010 KY Futurity Champ is the wildcard of the crew, returning from overseas back into the barn of trainer Dewayne Minor.  He loves this track, beat a nice mare in the local Q’fer.  But is he ready for his very best? 

3

Haulin Laser

Looks to be overmatched against this crew.  Pass. 

4

Chapter Seven

Unleashed a big move when Tetrick called on him in a tune up last week, but lands back in a bit tougher spot here against both rivals that have beaten him (4 & 6) this season.  Has wicked speed when he’s on top of his game. 

5

Hot Shot Blue Chip

Has always been one of my favs, and he arrives locally riding a 3 race win streak.  Has beaten all of his main rivals in here in those starts.  Should provide plenty of value as well, I can make a case. 

6

Mister Herbie

Absolutely nowhere to go in the $200k Credit Winner last time.  Appeared overloaded with trot down the lane, and meets back up with all 3 that beat him there today.  Needs his very best, should be blasting early.   

 

Race 14                   Selections                                2-8-5-3                    Start of $10,000 Pick 4                          See Ticket at the end

1

Mystical Starlight

Has been holding her own against some tough overnight company in PA recently, but she will need to find some more pop down the lane if she is going to come home with this crew.  Would have to pick it up even more. 

2

Tamla Celeber

I’m sure many of you remember Giant Diablo who holds the track record here with Donato Hanover, and now we have another talented mare from the same connections.  Local TT was VERY impressive!  I’ll take a shot. 

3

Action Broadway

Never fired on the half mile oval on Jug Day, but had been holding her own quite well against the top level mares prior on the east coast.  Reunites with Sears today.   Maybe. 

4

Magic Wheel

No chance after getting parked every step last time at Saratoga, and made a break in the start prior on Jug Day.  Hasn’t proven she can beat this kind just yet, I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Cedar Dove

Added lasix in the local Q’fer when she finished up a nice 2nd behind Wishing Stone, and she LOVED this track last year in winning the KY Filly Futurity.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post. 

6

Pantholops

Saved all the ground last time at Delaware to finish up behind #8 at a big price.  Lands in another tough group here, will have to pick things up even more. 

7

Beatgoeson Hanover

Typically does her best work from off the pace, and I am assuming she will like the stretch back out to the big track today.  Should have plenty of pace to chase in power packed field. 

8

Frenchfrys Nvinegar

Has a wicked early turn of foot, and no doubt she will be blasting early for JJ from way out here.  Has proven that she can go with the top level, catch her if you can. 

9

Pembroke Heat Wave

In the midst of a career best season with almost $300k in the bank, picking up some major checks against this type of company all year long.  Certainly has her work cut out from way out here today though. 

 

Race 15                   Selections                                8-3-5-2

1

Sterling Volo

Picked up the pieces to finish a nice 2nd last week, and has been holding her own against similar company since arriving locally.  Should sit close form the pole.  Maybe. 

2

Southwind Moni

Never fired after sitting far back off the torrid early pace last week, and will need a big rebound after landing in a competitive crew once again.  Maybe underneath.  D. Miller opted here over #7.   

3

Tactical Caviar

No shot last time after getting caught up in the blazing fractions, yet still managed to hold 3rd down the lane.  Any smoother journey should put her squarely in the mix. 

4

Fancy

Trotted evenly against a solid crew last week, but would still need to pick things up a bit to contend for any of the major awards.  Not today. 

5

Holier Than Thou

Put in a fairly dull effort last time in the $45k Keystone Classic at The Meadows as the heavy fav, but was sharp after being aggressively handled in the local start prior.  Needs her very best punch here. 

6

Keeping Grace

Never in it last time, and appears overmatched once again.  Pass. 

7

Aldebaran Malibu

Held her own against similar company on the east coast, and will likely be blasting to the top once again.  Will have to carry her speed a long way to get the job done here.  D. Miller opted to #2 instead.   

8

Massive Drama

Actually wasn’t all that bad of a start last time, finishing up less than a length behind #3 to finish 4th.  Made an aggressive move at the early leader, she can go with these on her best day.  Live longshot?  Yes.    

 

Race 16                   Selections                                2-4-7-5

1

Allthatgltrs isgold

Held his own against many of these rivals all season long, but didn’t fire with anywhere near his best effort last time at Indy.  Will have to get better in a hurry to keep up with this crew. 

2

Foreclosure

Raced evenly behind #7 last time at Mohawk, and flashed some wicked front end speed in the start prior.  Appears to have changed barns prior to today, will we see any improvement?  Price should be right!   

3

We Will See

Had a big win here last year in this event, but hasn’t been on top of his game against many of these same rivals recently.  Coming off a scratched sick line as well.  I’ll watch this one. 

4

Golden Receiver

Packs a TON of early speed, and he is very hard to get by down the lane when he gets any kind of breather in the mile whatsoever.  Catch him if you can.  Tetrick opted here over #6.    

5

Bettor Sweet

Closed well to finish up behind #4 last time at Pocono, and finished up just behind #8 in the 2 starts prior.  Typically always very close, his best effort should produce the same result here. 

6

St Elmo Hero

Tracked #7 throughout last time in Canada, yet was no match for him down the lane.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit to contend for any of the major awards in here.  Not today.  Tetrick opted to #4 instead.      

7

Aracache Hanover

Arrives locally after back to back wins in his last couple in Canada, no doubt he is RAZOR sharp right now.  I would expect McNair to put him in play early.  Must respect. 

8

Foiled Again

Continues to produce unreal earnings season after season, now with over $4.4 million in the bank.  Will need his very best today from way out here, lands in another tough group. 

 

Race 17                   Selections                                9-8-2-5-11

1

Feel the Pressure

Packed it in early last week after being covered up nicely.  Things aren’t going to get any easier with #9 in the mix now.  Pass. 

2

Delicious

Has been facing some of the very best fillies in the country all season, and should find this to be a much more comfortable spot.  I’ll give her a shot underneath. 

3

Gotcha Girl

Didn’t have much to offer after the change of tactics last week, and would need a complete turnaround to hang with the top ones in here. 

4

Majestic Kash

Showed a bit of improvement last week, but would still need a lot more to hang with the favs in here. 

5

Voluptuous Ronda

A nice 2nd place effort last week after an aggressive move to the top down the backside.  Plenty of options once again from mid-pack post.  Maybe.  Gingras opted to #9 instead.   

6

Belle Nana

Unable to keep up with stakes company last time, and drops into what should be a much more manageable level here in LC action.  Not an easy crew though, would still have to pick things up quite a bit.  DM opted to #10.   

7

Knockout Doll

Actually appeared to have a bit of trot before the break down the lane last week, but hasn’t proven that she can go with this kind prior.  I’ll pass for now. 

8

Love N Lindy

Sprinted away to an absolute romp against similar last week in a new LT best.  Has been ultra consistent all year, hitting the board in 10 of 12.  Looks clearly 2nd best behind the fav. 

9

Maven

Beaten less than a length in a World Record mile last week, and lands in a very comfortable spot here after not being eligible to the Filly Futurity.  No doubt the one to beat.  Gingras opted here over #5.   

10

Rose Run Nellie

Ohio triple crown winner had a nice trip following up the eventual winner last time, but she didn’t have a lot to offer down the lane.  Lands in post 10 once again, won’t be easy from way out here.  DM opted here over #6.    

11

Northern Miss Hall

KY Sires Stakes Champ didn’t particularly fire her best effort when launching a first over attack last week, but still dug in down the lane to finish 3rd.  Not a huge fan of 2nd tier trotters, needs her very best.
