Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, September 30th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                3-1-2-6

1

Bluff

Regally bred filly turned in the most impressive start of her career with a wire to wire win on Jugette Day in $51k Buckette, holding off Maven.  No question Tetrick will be on the gas early, catch her if you can. 

2

Real Babe

Banked over $142k on the season without winning a race, picking up checks against some of the top fillies in the country all year.  Her best effort puts her right in the mix once again. 

3

On the Bright Side

Regally bred daughter of $2 million earner Passionate Glide, who has quietly put together a decent resume of her own this season.  Lands in what appears to be the softer of 3 divs today.  Big shot. 

4

D’orsay

Regressed into a couple of breaks recently after getting used very hard here in her last win.  Potentially a more conservative steer coming here.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

5

Belle Nana

Handily defeated by #6 last week in Delaware, and appears to be a notch below the favs in here.  Pass. 

6

Canadian Justice

Speaking of quietly putting together a nice season, this filly has won half of her starts including an easy romp in $51k Buckette last week in Delaware.  Stepping up to the major leagues here though, needs her very best. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-5-3-2

1

Guccio

I hammered down on this guy in the $1.5 million Hambletonian, and he came up just a neck short at odds of 11-1.  Almost lasted in the $1 million CTC last time, only to tire in the final strides.  Dodges many of his main rivals tonight, which should certainly aid his cause.    

2

Solvato

Trotted evenly against some top stakes company recently, and should be in line to follow the favs with a nice up close trip from post 2.  I’ll use him underneath. 

3

Modern Family

Added lasix here in the AM, and unleashed a big final kicker to sprint away from his rivals.  Has proven he can hang with the big boys, and any further improvement should put him very close.  Lachance opted here over #4.   

4

Muscolo

Parlayed a perfect trip into a win in the $80k stake at Freehold last time, but has been a notch or two below the top colts in the country all season.  Hard to endorse him in this spot.  Lachance opted to #3 instead.   

5

Magic Tonight

Has hit the board in 6 of 12 on the season and that is with taking on all comers.  Likely to be blasting early, appears to be the main threat to the fav. 

6

Scary Good

Stepping up to take on some top colts today, likely to have to do it from last.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                7-3-2-5

1

JJ’s Beat the Rap

Held his own against overnight company in Indy, but would still need to improve quite a bit more to hang with the top ones in here.  Not tonight. 

2

Zot

Just a cut below the top colts in KYSS action, but appears to be well spotted here in a drop down to LC action.  His very best puts him in the mix. 

3

Red Rocks

Don’t sleep on this guy, he had a big win against Open company here earlier this summer and appeared to really get over this track quite well.  Any similar effort puts him close once again.  Picks up Kramer.    

4

Rules Clear

KY sired gelding returns to the red clay tonight, but not sure what to expect after a nearly 8 month break.  Q’fed decently at Pocono, would need his very best against these though.  Your call. 

5

Air Stewart

OH invader has held his own against some fairly tough overnight company in Columbus, and appears to be one of many with a shot here in a fairly wide open crew. 

6

Countmy muscles

Appears overmatched against these.  Pass. 

7

One In A Million

This colt has a ton of talent when he decides to mind his manners, but that has been very hard to predict recently.  Moves to the big track for the first time since adding hobbles, I’m willing to try ONE more time.  Price is right.

8

Wheels

NY invader has trotted evenly recently at Yonkers, and should improve with the stretch out to the mile oval.  Doesn’t appear to pack a lot of early speed though, Schnittker will have to find a way to work him into the race. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                5-6-3-1

1

Uncommon Night

I’ll I can say is wow in regards to that last start.  Filly was 0 for life coming in with over $127k on her card, made a break at the start to lose nearly 20 lengths yet came back to win.  BIG step up here though. 

2

Quarantine

Has really taken off since arriving locally, but she has went off as a heavy fav in the weaker crews she faced during our overnight meet.  Would still need to find a lot more speed to hang with the top ones in here. 

3

Personal Style

I won’t ever forget her win in the $714k Hambo Oaks back on 8-4, as she took advantage of the breakers to win at odds of 57-1!  Typically has a big late kick if things set up for her, should be flying late once again. 

4

Chilitoday hotamale

Couldn’t fend off #3 down the lane in overnight last time at Pocono, and might be a notch or two below the favs in here as well.  One of several with a shot at the minor awards. 

5

Win Missy B

Made an untimely break at the start as a heavy fav in the $225k NYSS last time at Yonkers, but had been solid on the NY circuit prior.  Connections opted to switch pilots tonight as well.  Interesting…

6

Superstar Hanover

Finished up a game 3rd in the $200k PASS Final last time behind the two divisional standouts, and has proven that she can hang with the top tier all season.  Must respect. 

7

Oasis Dream

Added lasix prior to the last start where she tired late to finish 3rd as a heavy fav.  Not sure things are heading in the right direction here. 

 

 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                7-2-5-3

1

RockNJessie

Ohio SS Champ appears to have landed in a tough spot for his local debut.  I’ll pass for now. 

2

Gym Tan Laundry

I’ve always been a big fan of this colt, not sure what happened to cause him to break at the start going for $1 million in the CTC.  Appears to be the main threat to the fav, but looks to be 2nd best in this spot. 

3

Lindys Jersey Boy

Parlayed a perfect trip into a slim win over #6 last time in the $46k Keystone Classic in PA, but appears to be just a step or two below the top tier this season.  One of several with a shot behind the favs in here. 

4

Lightning Storm

Added lasix in the AM, and hopefully that will help his stamina issues.  Still not sure he is ready to go with this crew, I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Banker Volo

Really looked sharp when he burst onto the scene prior to the Hambo this year, and he has put together a fairly solid resume hitting the board in 9 of 11.  His best effort puts him in the mix once again. 

6

Money On My Mind

Couldn’t fend off #3 down the lane last time at The Meadows as a heavy fav, and has been a bit inconsistent recently when taking on the best of the best.  Not sure I’m ready to hop back on board just yet. 

7

Little Brown Fox

Nearly dug in for the win last time in the $1 million CTC, and has been on top of his game recently taking on the very best.  No question the one to beat in my mind.  Gingras opted here over #1.    

 

Race 6                     Selections                                1-7-4-2                    Start of $10,000 Guaranteed Pick 4      See Ticket at the end

1

The Lindy Reserve

Never worked into the race against some tough foes last time in Canada, and lands in what should be a much more comfortable spot tonight.  Should sit close from the pole. 

2

Mr Chicago

Lightly raced colt showed some improvement last time north of the border, and has flashed some glimpses of speed in a limited amount of starts.  Any further improvement should put him squarely in the mix. 

3

Rome

Hasn’t been on top of his game locally, can’t endorse him against these.  Pass. 

4

Its Bush Time

Nearly pulled off a BIG upset the last time we saw him at Pocono, getting nailed in deep stretch at 29-1!  Lands in a field full of question marks here, likely to be blasting early.  Maybe. 

5

Mikesbrother frank

Picked up a solid 3rd against a decent field here last week, and lands in what should be a fairly similar crew here.  Appears to have a shot at the minor awards once again. 

6

Buck I Time

OH invader doesn’t pack a lot of early speed, and I’m not sure if I like his chances of trotting by many of his rivals in here late.  I’ll watch this one. 

7

Say It’s True

Expectedly tired late after attacking the eventual winner first over at Delaware last time, but put in a few solid efforts prior in KYSS action locally.  He definitely fits with these. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                5-7-9-3

1

Defying Gravity

Has really taken off since joining new barn 3 starts back, but likely faces his toughest task yet to date today.  Would have to step things up even more here. 

2

Maytime Terror

Has raced well against similar company on the east coast, and should fit with these as well.  Should sit up close to the pace.  Andy Miller opted to #5 instead.    

3

Arringarosa

I always like to see our overnight horses try to step up to take on GC company, and there is no question this guy packs some wicked speed.  Picks up the services of DM tonight as well.  Your call. 

4

Yakkity Yak Jack

Jack sprinted by his rivals down the lane last time, and had to take on some of the top colts in the country in the KYSS prior.  Still would need to picks things up quite a bit to go with the top ones in here. 

5

Dutch Richman

Winless on the year thus far, but likely lands in the softest spot he has seen all season.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post.  No question the classiest of his rivals in here.  Andy M. opted here over #’s 2 & 7.    

6

QB Killa

Had won 2 in a row before the miscue last time, but appears to have landed in a much tougher group today.  I’ll pass against these. 

7

Intervention

Sprinted away to a new LT best last time in Philly, and is another that should fit with these if he fires his best effort.  Has hit the board in 11 of 14 on the year.  Andy Miller opted to #5 instead.    

8

Fiveknuckle shuffle

Gelding has NEVER missed the board in 13 career starts, which included 10 wins.  However, he has been missing for over 10 months now, and lands on the outside of a solid crew.  I’ll have to watch one first. 

9

Big Jer

MI invader has been RAZOR sharp recently, and actually hasn’t done much wrong up until this point of his career.  Packs wicked early speed, and will likely be blasting from outside post.  Price is right as well. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                3-4-9-5

1

Lindmeyour victory

Trotted evenly in KYSS action locally, and will likely be in line for another nice ground saving journey here.  Appears to be one of many with a shot at the minor awards.  Campbell opted to #3 instead.    

2

Sterling Volo

Very impressed with her last effort here where she sprinted by a solid group with ease.  Appears to have finally rounded the corner since arriving locally.  Any further improvement puts her close. 

3

Four Damsals

NY invader was beaten less than a length 2 starts back in the $191k Muscle Hill stake at Vernon, and lands in what should be a much more manageable spot here.  I can make a case.  Campbell opted here over #1.    

4

Tactical Caviar

Packs a ton of early speed, and is another that appears to be facing far lesser company tonight than what she has seen recently.  Anything close to her best effort should put her close. 

5

Massive Drama

Trotted evenly against a solid group last time in Philly overnight, and has proven that she can hold her own against similar company all season.  Doesn’t like to win a lot, but plenty of on the board finishes. 

6

SereneLady

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

7

HSCertified

Not ready to go with the top ones in here at this point.  Pass.  Pierce opted to #5 instead.   

8

Mystical Escapade

Was an absolute runaway on the front end at Delaware, getting down to the half in 55 and ¾’s in 24.3.  Expectedly tired badly late, but still bottomed out most of the field to finish 2nd.  Needs to ration out the speed.

9

Southwind Moni

Came up only a nose short behind a nice filly in stakes action last time at The Meadows, and held her own against similar company in the prior efforts.  Her best puts her in the mix today. 

10

KpngGrace

Regressed into a couple of breaks recently and slammed with post 10.  Not a good recipe. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                5-9-6-4

1

Voluptuous Ronda

Never looked comfortable before making the break last time in her local debut, and will need a big rebound here.  Lands on the pole, should sit close if she minds her manners.  Gingras opted here over #8.    

2

Fancy

Hasn’t shown a ton of late pop recently, and would have to find some zip on the end of it to hang around with the top ones in here late.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

3

Knockout Doll

Added lasix 2 back, but still appears to be a notch or two below the top ones in here.  Not today.  

4

Gotcha Girl

Sprinted home to be 2nd in an absolute monsoon in Indy last time, and trotted evenly to finish 5th behind #5 in the $250k KYSS Final in the start prior.  Does her best work from off the pace. 

5

Northern Miss Hall

The Queen of the KYSS, as she swept all 3 legs again this season to reign supreme.  If she is anywhere close to that good again today, it may be a long day for the rest of these.  Must respect. 

6

Feel the Pressure

Didn’t have a lot to offer late last time, but did thread horses late in the prior start to finish up a solid 2nd behind #5 in the KYSS Final.  No question she will likely be blasting early.  Maybe underneath. 

7

Perfect Beauty

Had been in career best form prior to the break last time, but still not sure she is on the same level as the top ones in this crew.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

8

Majestic Kash

Moved into the Burke barn for those last 2 Q’fers, but still is yet to flash the type of speed needed to go with the best in this group.  I’ll watch closely for any improvement.  Gingras opted to #1 instead.   

9

Love N Lindy

Trotted evenly to finish 3rd behind a solid duo in the $51k Buckette last time in Delaware, and has put together a nice campaign primarily in Canada hitting the board in 9 of 11.  Certainly fits with these. 

10

Rose Run Nellie

Ohio Sires Stakes Champ is riding a 5 race win streak coming into tonight, but lands on the outside of a solid group of fillies for her local debut.  No question the toughest group she has faced thus far. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                6-5-4-1

1

Ldees Credit report

Mare has been solid in the top level at Indy, but unfortunately lands in against a couple of the fastest trotters of all time today.  Appears to be one of many with a shot underneath of those two. 

2

Miss DW Chip

Has gone from winning the Open at Bluegrass Downs to facing Arch Madness & Chapter Seven here in the Grand Circuit.  This might be asking a bit much for her.  Tetrick opted to #6 instead.    

3

Waldorf Hall

Trotted evenly in the $205k Indy stake last time, and is another with a shot at the lesser awards behind the 2 favs. 

4

Haulin Laser

Held his own on the top levels at Indy, but a whole new ball game against the top duo in here.  Appears wide open for the minor awards. 

5

Arch Madness

Gelding continues to take on the best of the best here at age 8, with career earnings over $3.6 million.  Has been very good in his last couple, but has his work cut out against #6. 

6

Chapter Seven

I have a good feeling that’s what you may have to file if you bet your money against this guy today…  No trotter has ever gone a sub-50 mile on a mile track.  Could he become the first this afternoon? 

7

Blueridge Legacy

Finally pulled off his first win on the season last week as a heavy fav, but he’s not ready to hang with the top ones in here.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Tetrick opted to #6 instead.    

 

Race 11                   Selections                                4-5-7-1

1

Dream On Hanover

Unfortunately hooks both of the divisional leaders here tonight in Bluegrass action, but should sit close and save ground throughout.  Maybe underneath. 

2

Can’t Have My Moni

Can’t miss pedigree, out of the ’12 leading sire Cantab Hall and the $5.5 million mare, Moni Maker.  Has been a bit inconsistent recently though, and lands in quite the shark tank here. 

3

Anandamide

Held her own against some tough company on the NYSS circuit this season, hitting the board in 7 of 8.  That being said, she lands in an impossible spot here. 

4

Maven

Call me a glutton for punishment, but I have continuously tried her on top of #5 this year and it’s yet to work out that well thus far.  No question both fillies are in a league of their own.  Take your pick. 

5

Check Me Out

Rebounded after a break in the $714k Hambo Oaks with 4 consecutive victories, including a win 2 back against #4 in the $200k PASS Final.  It’s a pleasure to have them in the same division today, enjoy the show.

6

Sassy Syrinx

Lightly raced filly picked up some nice coin when she was placed 3rd in the Hambo Oaks earlier this summer, but still hasn’t proven she can hang with the top ones in this crew. 

7

Valdonna

Hard to fault this filly recently, as she has put in some vicious late rallies to finish up closely behind the 2 favs in stakes action.  Likely to be flying late once again. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 12                   Selections                                1-4-6-3

1

Fusion Man

Dominated in the $250k KYSS Final 2 starts back, but had the tables turned on him when his speedy rival made the front end at Delaware last time.  He loves this track though, anything close to his best should be good enough. 

2

Big Chocolate

Off to a slow start here in his sophomore campaign, but appears to have gotten things back on track by beating up on some overnight company in the midwest since adding lasix.  Still going to have to pick it up a bit more.

3

Appomattox

Never in the $1 million CTC after being slammed with post 10 last time out, but appears to have landed in the most comfortable Bluegrass div for his local debut.  His best should put him close. 

4

Beer Summit

Not sure what happened last time, but has proven he can hold his own with some of the top colts in the country this season.  Packs plenty of early speed if Pierce elects to step on the gas. 

5

From Above

Caught fire here last year, but has likely been a bit of a disappointment for his connections this season.  Not an overly tough group for this level though, his best effort puts him in the mix. 

6

Another Amaretto

Sprinted away from his rivals to win the $46k Keystone Classic in a LT best last time, and lands in what appears to be a fairly wide open crew of stakes colts here.  Any further improvement puts him in play. 

7

Go Tapaigh

Hasn’t proven he can go with the top colts thus far, and lands on the outside of an ultra competitive crew here.  Not sure I can endorse him against these. 

 

Race 13                   Selections                                4-10-5-3-8                                                               10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE WAGERING

1

Ballistic Tip

($1.3k Del yearling) Has been ok in local overnight company, but appears to be facing a much tougher group here.  Not sure he is ready to go with these just yet.  Tetrick opted to #9 instead.    

2

Native Blue

Just a short nose from being undefeated prior to tonight, but we haven’t seen him in nearly 2 months and he has changed barns as well.  Q’fer was not overly impressive in Indy.  I’ll watch one first.  Campbell opted to #8.   

3

Card Knock Life

($50k Lex yearling) Has been solid against some tough company on the east coast thus far, and any similar effort should put him in the mix here. 

4

Resistance Futile

($33k Lex yearling) No question he packs plenty of speed, but has had some breaking problems thus far in his brief career.  Connections tried him against stakes company so they are likely high on his ability. 

5

Mindset

($150k Lex yearling) High priced yearling makes his career debut after only one AM work, where he sprinted home and held his ground for the most part into a big 55.1 back half.  Should continue to improve. 

6

Kiss My Donkey

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top ones in here right now.  Pass. 

7

Dragon’s Rule

Raced evenly in his last couple against mid-level stakes company, and continues to improve with each start.  Not an easy group here, would have to improve even more to contend for the major awards. 

8

Fudge

($35k Lex yearling) Has been facing fairly tough overnight company in Canada thus far, but was a bit dull last time to finish a distant 3rd as the odds on fav.  Looks to have landed in a similar spot here, needs even more. 

9

Ring Leda

($65k HB yearling) Doesn’t appear to have much early speed, and not sure I like how things set up for him from way out here.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Tetrick opted here over #1.    

10

Only the Lonely

Regally bred colt out of stakes winning mare Lonesome Day, put in an impressive performance in his 2nd start for new connections last time after coming 1st over in the $106k Babic.  AM has to find a way to work him in it.
