Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, September 16th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                5-3-1

1

Boodro

You would think this would serve as a drop in class for him on paper, but this has come up pretty tough for this level.  Should sit close in small field, appears wide open behind the fav.  Maybe. 

2

Alluring Art

How many times are we going to watch her win and pay $20?  3 consecutive victories, all at 9-1 or better!  Having said that, I can’t endorse her against these and she is likely to be a $20 horse once again. 

3

Kentucky All Star

Appeared beaten as a heavy fav last time down the lane, but she was able to dig back in and fight off her rival to get the job done.  Would take a LOT more to hang with the top ones in here though. 

4

Cumonman Bluegrass

Indy invader has only hit the board once in 25 LT starts, but lands in a small field for his local debut.  Appears to be wide open behind the fav.  Your call. 

5

Sgt Matt

No luck in the $250k KYSS final, but he is possibly taking the biggest class drop of all time from facing some of the top colts in the country to hooking up with this crew.  Report to the winner’s circle!

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-4-6-5

1

Main Street Hall

I loved this guy last time and he made an uncharacteristic break up the back side.  Not sure what caused that, but I think he could pick off this crew with his best effort.  Price will be better tonight as well.  Loney opted to #4.    

2

Moreagio

Appears overmatched once again. 

3

Massasuaga

Didn’t have anything to offer in his ’12 debut on the off track, and would take a complete turnaround here. 

4

Diamond Deo

Ended up sick last time in Indy, but marched to an impressive first over score the last time we saw him here at 9-1!  We won’t get that kind of price here, but any similar effort puts him right in the mix once again. 

5

Roscoes Rib Rack

I must admit that I wasn’t a big fan of his last time, and he nearly went right down the road before tiring down the lane to finish 2nd.  A much better effort than what we had seen prior.  May be on the right track finally.

6

Saskia Lavictoire

Not sure I can pronounce her name, but she has been facing much tougher company recently in Indy and appears to have landed in a fairly comfortable spot for her local debut.  Packs plenty of early speed. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                4-2-5-3

1

West Coast Arturo

Has been facing far tougher company recently, and should enjoy the drop to this level.  Not an overly tough group, but stamina continues to be the main question here.  Stiltner opted here over #6.   

2

Scootin in Secret

We haven’t seen her in nearly 3 weeks now, but she was an even 5th behind a far tougher crew in her only local start.  If she comes back with any similar effort tonight, she could be tough in here.  

3

Brooklets Kama

Not bad for her first start off over a 3 month break on Thursday, and appears to have landed in a very comfortable spot here for her 2nd off the layoff.  Should be tightened up and ready to roll. 

4

Miss Kelley Lynne

Another that we haven’t seen in quite some time, and she was no good here the first time we saw her.  I will point out that she does have a 57.2 mark from Maywood this year, and there isn’t much in this spot.  Hmm…

5

Georgian Jiffyjane

Doesn’t have a lot of early speed, but that shouldn’t make any difference here in the small field where she should stay within striking range.  No question the softest crew she has faced here all year. 

6

Bad Girlfriend

Her mom was involved in some classic battles on this track, but it’s been a while since we have seen her offer any pop.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement.  Stiltner opted to #1 instead.    

 

Race 4                     Selections                                5-4-3-6

1

Momspacific flight

Lands in an absolutely wide open crew here in small field, but she didn’t have much to offer last time in a race that set up perfectly for her.  Not sure I’m ready to hop back on board now. 

2

Lady Cambest

Hasn’t really fired like I thought she would here just yet, including a fairly dull 4th last week.  Not an overly tough group here, but she still needs to pick it up a bit. 

3

Buckeye Baddler

OH invader has been holding her own against some decent company up that way, and lands in a very comfortable spot for her local debut.  I would expect her to blast early. 

4

Here Kitty Kitty

A decent 2nd place finish the only time Tyler Smith was in the bike 2 starts back, and he gets the call once again here.  Again, it’s absolutely WIDE open.  Demand value with whomever you choose. 

5

Hoosier Rosie

Rosie has been facing far tougher company since arriving locally, and she should enjoy the class relief tonight.  Should sit much closer, and likely to be charging late. 

6

Black Blitz

Never really fired in 2 local starts, but she is another that was facing much tougher company than what she has landed in with tonight.  No question she can go with these on her best day. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                8-5-1-6

1

Full Service

Couldn’t fight off the pocket rocket on the off track last time, but still not a bad effort to finish up a close 2nd.  No question she will be close to the lead once again.  Big shot. 

2

Let Her Rock

1st time starter finished last in her only Q’fer at Pocono, but was likely facing some solid rivals there.  Should continue to improve here in her 2nd time behind the gate, but not quite sure she is ready for these. 

3

Mystic Rose

Hasn’t had anything to offer thus far, and facing a solid group here.  Pass. 

4

Jazzie Music

Appears to have tailed off a bit after beginning the meet with a couple of solid efforts.  Not quite sure what has caused that, but it would take a complete turnaround now to hang with the top ones in here. 

5

Bazinga

Absolutely had this guy on my bet back list after an amazing debut where he could have likely won if he had clearance.  Unfortunately he hooks a couple of tough rivals here, but I think he has some talent. 

6

Milburn

No match for a tough crew last time, but has proven he can hold his own at this level locally.  Not sure he is on the same level as the top ones, but appears to have a shot at the minor awards. 

7

It’s True

Hasn’t shown the stamina to hang around late with these just yet, I’ll pass for now. 

8

Baez

Well bred filly drops in for her career debut tonight for top connections.  Has a couple of nice preps under her belt on the east coast, and I don’t think there is any doubt that she will be blasting from post 8.  Must respect. 

9

Shop Talk

Makes his career debut after plenty of practice in the morning, but would have to find a lot more speed and quickly. 

 

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

1

Misconception

Not much success against similar company here.  Pass. 

2

Days Go By

Hasn’t hit the board in the last couple of years, but likely facing one of the weaker crews he has seen as well.  Still would need a lot more to solve the severe stamina issue. 

3

Get-er Done Cam

Shows back up after over 75 days on the shelf for his local debut, but I’ll have to watch one first after what appears to be a dull Q’fer. 

4

Money on Tap

Raced evenly last time to finish up only 3 lengths back in 6th, but he had plenty of clearance down the lane if he was good enough.  Taking a substantial plunge in class, should be in line for a nice cover trip as well. 

5

Fortune Road

Rallied to a decent 5th place finish from last the other night, and will likely end up with another off the pace effort here with the move to conditioned company.  Needs his absolute very best. 

6

Hoosier Frisco

No question this guy is facing the softest crew he has faced in no telling how long, but he is likely to be a VERY short price and I will point out he doesn’t like to win a lot.  Worth the risk?  Not for me. 

7

Blazing Tower

Appears to have really tailed off over the last several weeks.  Can’t endorse him just yet. 

8

Great Scot

Barn has had some success here with the OH invaders, and this guy is likely just getting back into shape here in his 3rd start off the extended layoff.  Not a lot of early speed though and lands in post 9. 

9

Cruise to Fame

Appears to pack enough early speed to overcome post 10 if Nisonger elects to put him in play early.  Not an easy group, but his best effort would put him in the mix. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                4-2-7-6

1

Victoria Valley

Has held her own at this level locally, but appears to have landed in a fairly tough crew tonight.  Lands on the pole though, and should sit close to the action. 

2

Winky’s Truffle

Showed plenty of improvement last week, digging in for a nice 2nd place finish in only the 2nd start of her career.  Should continue to build off that, and any further improvement puts her in the mix once again. 

3

Zoli

Still appears to have a lot of breaking problems, but there is no question he appears to have some talent as well if he can mind his manners.  I’m not sure that will be the case though. 

4

Swiss Alps

Thrown right to the sharks in making his first 3 career starts against stakes company, and he will be glad there is no Mystical Dew in here.  Should be ready to break through for his first career win off the drop. 

5

Tickle Me Grace

Has picked up some minor checks against similar company here this season, but yet to show any major league speed.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post, but still needs to pick it up a bit. 

6

Kacy’s Photo

Put in another solid effort Thursday to finish up closely behind a heavy fav.  Hooks a solid crew here, but her best should put her close once again. 

7

Kegler Hanover

Made breaks in both career starts thus far, but the Crazed first cropper has proven that he has some talent when he minds his manners.  Connections tried him against stakes company both tries.  Lands in a comfortable spot. 

8

Buy Me Emeralds

Not sure she is going to get any emeralds tonight. 

9

Berto Lucky Star

Would take a lot more than luck to hang with these.  Pass. 

10

Muscles R Us

Q’fers look ok, but facing a tough assignment to take on a solid group from post 10 tonight in only the 2nd start of her career.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                6-7-4-1

1

Trishie Mae

Nearly got by last time to spring the upset, and moves back in for the claiming tag here.  No question that was a step in the right direction, and any further improvement puts her in the mix against these. 

2

Pocket Belle

13yo hasn’t had much to offer recently, and has landed in against a solid crew tonight.  I’ll pass for now. 

3

Miss Bikini Beach

Ended up a distant 3rd as a big longshot last time, and likely retains longshot status tonight as it doesn’t appear things are going to get any easier. 

4

It’s Fun

Really rounded into form over the last few starts, including back to back wins.  Moves in for the claiming tag now, but appears to be the one to beat. 

5

Yank My Rope

Raced evenly against a tough crew last time, but will have to pick it up even more after landing in against many of those same rivals tonight. 

6

Willing Heart

Hung in well to be 3rd last week after coming first over to challenge the eventual runaway winner.  Should be tightened up and ready to roll now after being scratched sick prior.  I can make a case.  TT opted here over #1.    

7

Baby Blue Pajamas

Followed #6 up perfectly last time, and closed by her late to pick up 2nd behind the front end winner.  Might be in line for a similar journey tonight.  No question she fits with these. 

8

Hoosier GB Diamond

Followed the eventual winner throughout last week, but couldn’t keep up with her late.  Likely to be blasting to the top once again from post 8, but going to have to find some more stamina for the stretch drive. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                9-5-7-3-6                 10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE WAGERING

1

Blueridge Tebow

Showed some improvement with an even effort last time, but he would have to pick it up even more to go with the top ones in this crew. 

2

Silent Fool

Not sure what is going on with this guy but he has been spacing his starts out quite a bit, and hasn’t had a lot of pop on the end of his miles recently.  I’ll watch closely for any improvement.  Loney opted here over #’s 6 & 10. 

3

Last Second Shot

Raced a little better last time, but appears to have landed in an even tougher group tonight.  Would need his absolute very best against these. 

4

King’s Lightning

Picked up the pieces from last to pick up 2nd behind the runaway winner in his last try, and he appears to be rounding into form here at the end of the meet.  Should be closing late once again. 

5

Papaknows best

Tried to go down the road last time as the heavy fav, but ended up tiring a bit late and had to settle for 3rd.  Got caught up in a sizzling pace there, hopefully Nisonger can ration out the speed a bit tonight. 

6

I Ota Win

Drops down a notch after racing evenly against some tough company recently.  His best effort would put him close in here.  Maybe.  Loney opted off for #2 instead. 

7

Dugan Run Dream

Left hard from post 9 last time, and endured a tough first over trip as well before finishing 3rd.  Not a bad effort at all there, and anything similar puts him in play again tonight. 

8

Ndana Favorite

Hasn’t had much to offer locally, and has been lightly raced over the last couple of seasons.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit to make any major noise against these. 

9

EJ’s Pocket Rocket

Trust me when I tell you he had NOWHERE to go down the lane last week and appeared to be overloaded with pace.  Tyler back in town for the drive tonight, I’m ready to hop on board. 

10

SBD First Blood

Blasted from post 10 on Thursday, nearly pulling off the 15-1 upset before getting mowed down by another longshot in deep stretch.  A much improved effort, but lands in a tough spot here.  Your call.  Loney opted to #2.
