Red Mile Race Reviews

Sunday, September 9th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                2-4-10-9

1

March Awareness

1st time starter tried to Q’fy on numerous occasions and finally went around the track without making a break last time.  Not ready to hop on board just yet. 

2

Lil Miss Brinley

Regressed into a break last time, but was on fire down the lane in the prior start to come up only a nose short in finishing 2nd.  Anything similar to that puts her close once again.   

3

JP That Big George

Scratched here last week when he was scheduled to make his career debut, Q’fers weren’t overly impressive prior.  I’ll pass for now.  Tetrick opted to #8 instead.    

4

Mikey’s Trottin toy

2yo has held his own against mid-level stakes company in Indy thus far, and lands in a fairly comfortable spot for his local debut.  His best effort puts him squarely in the mix. 

5

Winky’s Truffle

Didn’t have a lot to offer in her debut, and came up sick last time.  I’ll watch this one.  Tetrick opted to #8 instead.    

6

Big Short

Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to go with these just yet, and appears to have some breaking issues. 

7

Etienne

Another that doesn’t look to be ready to hang with the top ones in here just yet. 

8

Blue Martini As

Trotted evenly in the local Q’fer after making a break in her only actual start in Indy.  Probably in line for a conservative steer here.  I’ll pass for now.  Tetrick opted here over #’s 3 & 5.    

9

Rose Run Melanie

Had some late trot last time, coming up only a length and half short of gunning down #10.  Likely to be coming from off the pace once again and should pick up some of the pieces late. 

10

Kentucky Freeze

I’m willing to excuse that last start when the track was an absolute mess last Sunday, and this filly had been ultra consistent here prior.  Likely to be blasting early from way out here.  Maybe. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                5-2-3-6

1

Don’tcheat onafilly

Had a perfect trip behind #2 last time, but was no match for her late in finishing a distant 2nd.  Would need a LOT more to hang with some tough fillies here. 

2

Simone Hall

This filly has done absolutely nothing wrong in two blowout wins since arriving locally, but she has hooked the weaker divisions as well.  No question she has a lot of talent, but I will look for value elsewhere. 

3

Ma Chere Hall

Not sure what happened last time with the ‘sick’ scratch, but the opening leg was ultra impressive as she absolutely exploded by her rivals when she shook loose down the lane.  Anything similar puts her in play. 

4

V Six

Not sure she has the horsepower to stay close with these.  Pass. 

5

Andie Sophia

Unleashed a furious rally down the lane last time to come up only a neck short to #6.  The lone Like A Prayer in the $250k final, he has sired a ton of great trotters here over the years.  Lands in perfect mid-pack post. 

6

True Day Dream

She has been a true dream for the connections, riding a 5 race win streak and yet to miss the board in 7 tries.  No question she is headed for the top, but it’s her toughest task to date.  Catch her if you can. 

7

Caneel Hall

Trotted evenly in both preliminary legs, but things aren’t going to get any easier here.  Needs more. 

8

Dewey Lane

Absolutely dominated her rivals last time, after making a break in the opening leg.  She appeared to have plenty more in the tank but draws on the outside of her main rivals.  Won’t be easy. 

9

Kijafa

Maybe a notch below the top ones and likely to be sitting far back early.  Not tonight.  

10

Dana Boko

Continues to improve with each start, but slammed with post 10 in tough group. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                1-4-2-6

1

Ohmybelle

How can you fault this filly?  Never been worse than 2nd in 10 tries.  Used very hard early last time, and still dug deep to hold 2nd.  BIG money on the line here, she will likely go down swinging if anyone takes an early shot once again.    

2

Diligent Prospect

Finished up a game 2nd in her opening leg try, but never appeared comfortable before fading to a distant 4th place finish last time.  Which DP shows up here?  Good question. 

3

Caribbean Treasure

Typically not a great way to be heading into the final after getting rimmed every step the start prior and fading late to finish last.  She actually hung in there for a long way though.  Should be able to sit and pounce tonight. 

4

So Nice

Unleashed a furious rally to explode by her rivals last time in only her 3rd time ever behind a starting gate.  That’s a BIG mile for this early in her career.  If she can sustain it or keep improving it won’t be So Nice for the rest of these. 

5

Olive Oyle

Skipped the 2nd leg for overnight event in Philly, and she is yet to display much stamina thus far in her brief career.  Would have to pick it up quite a bit to hang with these.  Sears opted to #6 instead.     

6

KZ Beach Girl

Passed a couple of tired ones late last time to pick up 3rd, but she is yet to really improve off that win over #1 3 starts back in $8.5k KY Fair Final.  Her best effort puts her right in the mix though.  Sears chose over #5. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                3-5-8-2

1

Winchester

Couldn’t survive on the lead as the fav in similar company last time, and appears to have hooked an even tougher group tonight.  I would use him underneath only. 

2

Milburn

Right when I thought he was headed in the right direction he made a break at the start the other night, but I suppose we can excuse that given the track was a mess.  Could be a live longshot if he reverts back to the prior start.  Smith opted to #5 instead.   

3

Ellie’s Best Dream

Uncorked a wicked late rally last time to turn in a dominating win under wraps.  I was VERY impressed by that effort, and I’m willing to hop right back on board tonight. 

4

Big Man Clyde

Big Clyde continues to puzzle me, he has looked great in AM Q’fers but he continues to struggle putting it together under the lights.  I’ll wait until we see him show some signs of improvement.  TS opted to #5.    

5

Real Rocker

Appears to have been handled fairly conservatively in his 1st LT start in Indy, but he sprinted home late to pick up a close 3rd.  Should get a more aggressive steer in 2nd career try, looks like a nice youngster.  Tyler Smith opted here over #’s 2 & 4.    

6

Looksgood onu

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

7

Sweet Valentine

Lands in a much easier crew than she faced in her first local try, but she would still need her very best effort to make any kind of major noise against these. 

8

Margarita Monday

Her full brother (Bolt the Duer) is the fav in tonight’s 10th race, and one of the nicest colts in the country.  She’s obviously not like her brother, but she can hang with this crew on her best night. 

9

Doc’s Coco

Takes a fairly sizeable step up tonight from the condition claiming ranks, and appears to have her work cut for her from post 9. 

10

Mystic Rose

Has had all sorts of trouble recently and slammed with post 10.  Not tonight. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                4-1-5-6

1

Gisela As

Was dead game last time, and nearly fought off #4 down the lane.  Lands on the pole tonight, and may get the jump on her main rival once again.  She was the runner-up in last year’s $250k final. 

2

Abby

Tired badly in her last couple of stakes tries, and she is going to have to find a lot more stamina to hang with this crew. 

3

Feel the Pressure

Never looked comfortable last time before making the break at the top of the lane, but was a nice 2nd to #1 in the opening leg 2 starts back.  Would need a big rebound to pick up one of the minor awards here. 

4

Northern Miss Hall

Last year’s champ has proven to be the Queen once again with back to back wins in the opening legs prior to tonight’s $250k final.  Only real threat appears to be #1. 

5

Gotcha Girl

Not sure what made her jump offstride at the start last time, but the prior start she followed #4 up perfectly and parlayed that into a nice 2nd place finish.  Could be in line for a similar journey here from perfect mid-pack post. 

6

Lindmeyour victory

Another that typically likes to set up an off the pace rally, and has a couple of solid 3rd place finishes in the opening legs.  Should get towed into it nicely as well. 

7

Northern Cindy

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

8

Delmary

Didn’t have anything to offer from 2nd tier last time, and was an even 4th in the start prior.  Doesn’t appear to be on the same level as the favs in here.  Tetrick opted to #1 instead.    

9

Dazzling Valley

Likely to be sitting far back early from post 9.  Not sure I like that scenario in here.  Wrenn opted off for #3. 

10

American Saint

Tough call here, filly has some talent but didn’t race well on the lead in the opening leg and was even from post 10 last time.  Certainly has her work cut out for her from way out here with all the favs inside. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                7-1-8-2                    Start of the $5,000 Guaranteed Pick 4  See ticket at the end

1

Prayer Session

Defending Champ lands on the pole tonight and that should certainly aid his cause for a repeat.  Mowed down late last week by #7, likely to be on the lead once again with a short price looming. 

2

Awsome Valley

Made a bobble at the start last time only to get back down and march to a first over win in a new LT best!  Appears to be peaking at the right time, should be in line for a nice trip up close. 

3

Say It’s True

Never in it last time, but pulled off a big upset in the opening leg at 17-1!  They could heat it up early going for this kind of money, and if they do….     Here comes Say It’s True.  Tetrick opted off to #6.   

4

Red Falkor

Appears to be improving since joining Team Burke, but still appears to be a notch below the favs in here. 

5

Rapids N Currents

Trotted evenly last time against the top colts, but is still going to have to pick it up quite a bit to contend for any of the major awards.  Sears opted to #4 instead.    

6

Charming Dream

Couldn’t fend off #2 as the heavy fav after having things his way on the front end last time, and now is facing the best of the best in the final.  Going to have to pick it up even more.  Tetrick opted here over #3.    

7

Fusion Man

Never looked comfortable 2 starts back, but they got him figured out by the 2nd leg because he absolutely blew by #1 with relative ease.  Should be in line for another off the pace rally here.  I’ll hop on board. 

8

Quel Bourbon

Used very hard last time leaving, and then popped back out for an aggressive first over attack against #1.  After all that, he still managed to hang on for 4th.  Might be in line for a nice journey tonight behind #7.  Live longshot?

9

Zot

Likely to be sitting far back early, and appears overmatched against the top colts.  Pass. 

10

Enrico As

Ended up with a perfect trip behind #1 last time which resulted in a decent 3rd place finish.  Not sure things are going to work out that perfectly from way out here though. 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                1-7-5-8

1

Blatantly Best

Rallied from far back last time to what was probably going to be a very close 2nd place finish to #7 before the break in the stretch.  That was the first defeat of his career.  Land on the pole, should sit much closer. 

2

Nutmegs Maya

Tired late after being used hard early in his last start, but should benefit from sitting close to the pace in here.  Appears to be one of several with a shot at the minor awards. 

3

A List

Had a couple of tough first over journeys in the opening legs of KYSS action, and still going to have to prove that he can hang with the top ones in this group. 

4

Summons

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

5

Talk It Up

Unbelievable effort to get used early and still have plenty enough pace to finish up a game 2nd behind #7.  Continues to improve with each start, and I’ll use him underneath once again. 

6

Jude Hall

Raced evenly against tough crew last time, and lands in another solid group here from post 6.  Would take his absolute best to get a piece against these. 

7

Duel in the Sun

Surged by his rivals after a perfect trip last week to score the easy victory after #1 made a break down the lane.  No question he fits with these, and should be close once again. 

8

Derby Dylan

Note the barn change here into Team Alagna.  Dylan has been good here all season, and any smooth journey from out here should put him close once again. 

9

Homestake

Tired late after being used hard early in the 2nd leg, and doesn’t appear to pack the speed to go with these just yet.  I’ll pass for now. 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                5-6-8-2

1

Lightning Reno

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

2

Lady Cambest

Solid effort over the off track last Sunday to finish 3rd, and appears to have landed in a similar crew here.  She can hang with her best effort. 

3

Real Impressive

Tried going down the road here on Thursday, and tired late when put to the test.  She is now 0 for 22 LT, I could use her underneath only once again. 

4

The Hit Lady

Raced evenly against similar company in her last, but appears to have hooked an even tougher group in here.  Not sure she is ready to go with the top ones in here. 

5

Dragon Tattoo

Lone 2yo in the field has held his own at this level in Indy and PA, and appears to have hooked a fairly soft crew for his local debut.  Plenty of options from perfect mid-pack post.  Smith opted here over #7.    

6

Alluring Art

Looking for 3 in a row now after a powerful performance in overnight company last time.  No question this appears to be a bit tougher group, and she would need her very best once again.  JN opted here over #9.    

7

Blue By U

Hasn’t had much luck at this level, and I don’t see things changing here.  Pass.  Smith opted to #5 instead.    

8

Her Misconduct

Has proven that she can go with these here this year, and typically offers a nice late rally if things set up her way.  Should be flying late once again. 

9

Momspacific flight

Finished up a nice 2nd behind similar company last time, but appears to have her work cut out from post 9 in this spot.  Would have to find a way to get worked into it.  I’ll pass for now.  Nisonger opted to #6 instead.   

 

Race 9                     Selections                                4-5-2-7

1

Park Lane Crystal

Had a perfect trip last time in what essentially ended up as a 4 horse field after the breakers, but could only manage a distant 3rd place finish.  Things aren’t going to get any easier here. 

2

Hot Beach Girl

Very impressed by this filly last time, as she was left first over for a long way after #4 cleared to the lead and she battled for a long time and hung in well.  Just missed holding 2nd at big odds.  Live longshot?  I think so. 

3

T B Beach Girl

Last year’s champ is still looking for her first win on the season, and hasn’t been able to fend off the top ones in the preliminary legs.  Would have to pick things up quite a bit if she’s going to successfully defend the title. 

4

Shawnee Dancer

Changed barns prior to the last start after a private purchase, and she looked untouchable in peeling off her 3rd consecutive victory.  Completely wrapped up down the lane, no question she is the one to beat. 

5

Keene Angelic

Has been dominant in a pair of big wins in the opening legs of KYSS action, but she is yet to hook up with #4.  Certainly hasn’t done anything wrong, but would have to improve even more to go with the fav. 

6

Sandra’son thebeach

Hasn’t had anything to offer late in the opening legs, and appears to be a notch below the top ones.  Pass. 

7

Miss Lucy O

Lucy has had a couple of picture perfect 2nd over trips in the opening legs, and she has made the most of them by picking up a couple of nice checks.  Could be in line for another nice cover trip here, maybe underneath. 

8

Caribbean Girl

No threat last time and moves outside to post 8 tonight.  Not a good combination. 

9

Poker Place

Appeared to have plenty of pace when she was pinned in 2 starts back in finishing 3rd, and then made a break far behind the gate last time.  Take a long look at her on the track, she didn’t look great scoring down last time. 

10

Doc’s Hope

No question she has the talent to go with the top ones in here, but not sure what has happened in recently after being scratched ‘sick’ last time.  Slammed with post 10 on top of it.  She will need her very best. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                2-7-1-5

1

Caviart Key

Last year’s runner-up lands on the pole here after a couple of runner-up finishes in the opening legs to the 2 heavy favs in here.  Not sure he is on their level, but should sit close to the battle and end up with a nice piece. 

2

Bolt the Duer

The defending KYSS champ debuted with a couple of dominant performances in the opening legs, fresh off becoming the fastest horse ever on a 5/8 mile track with his 47.4 win at The Meadows in the $500k Adios.  This is going to be a heck of a heavyweight battle with #7, it’s the one we’ve been waiting for!  Get your popcorn ready. 

3

Sgt Matt

Picked up a couple of checks with distant finishes in the opening rounds, but would have to pick things up quite a bit.  Smith opted to #1 instead. 

4

Bugsy Malone

Followed #2 in both legs thus far, but hasn’t been able to keep up with him late.  Would take a LOT more tonight. 

5

Partner

Used hard early last time from post 10, and never really got clearance down the lane.  I think he is better than that, and is certainly a threat for the minor awards in here.  Noble opted here over #9.   

6

Yakkity Yak Jack

Appears overmatched against these.  Pass. 

7

Thinking Out Loud

Elected to stay at his home base in Canada last week after already Q’fying for the final down here the week prior with a win.  The $1.5 million NA Cup Champ has now earned over $900k, and a win tonight would make him a millionaire.  It won’t be easy to take from #2, should be an absolute slugfest and fun to watch. 

8

Jimmy Rip

Hasn’t been able to hang close in the opening legs, and would take a lot more to make any noise tonight. 

9

Dragon Spike

Tired badly after an aggressive front end try last time, and was far back the week prior as well.  Asking quite a bit for him to go with these.  Noble opted to #5 instead.    

10

Heavenly Beaches

Claimed for only $30k back at the end of July, this guy has picked up a couple of solid 3rd place checks in the opening legs.  Has a big shot to collect another one here, but will likely have to do it from last.  Your call. 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                4-6-3-8

1

Southwind Metallic

Finished up a close 4th last time after an eventful trip which included a break at the start and a 3-wide move around the far turn.  He has landed in quite the shark tank here though, would need even more. 

2

Dewey Luvs Britt

Appears to be a notch below the top ones in here.  Pass.  Christensen opted off to #9 instead.   

3

Mystical Dew

Undefeated 2yo looks the part, as he glides over the track with ease and unleashed a 27.4 final quarter last time to gun down #6 late.  Meets a solid crew, but hasn’t done a thing wrong.  Must respect. 

4

Banco Solo

One of only 2 Master Glide colts to make the final, as they run up against a field full of the first crop of superstar Deweycheatumnhowe.  Don’t discount this guy though.  He could not have looked any better in his opening round wins, and I’m convinced that he can go with anything in here on his best day. 

5

Swiss Alps

Continues to improve with each start, but may still be asking a bit much for him to go with the top ones in here in only the 3rd start of his career. 

6

Here’s Johnny

Displayed some major league talent in what was essentially the first start of his career last week, finishing up a game 2nd in a fast mile behind the fav.  Any further improvement puts him squarely in the mix. 

7

Tornado

A couple of even efforts in the opening legs, but maybe a notch below the top ones still.  Pass. 

8

Caveat Emptor

Made a break at the top of the lane last time when they began to apply pressure.  No question he has the talent to go with these, but will need a big rebound after that. 

9

Penn

The other son of Master Glide in the final, who powered away for an impressive score in the 2nd leg.  He takes on a far tougher group tonight though.  Needs even more.  Christensen opted here over #2.      

10

Deweytrot andhowe

After seeing this guy at the fairs all season long, it would be really nice to see him pick up a check here in the major leagues but he wasn’t done any favors with post 10.  Not sure he can overcome that. 

 

Race 12                   Selections                                4-8-7-9-3                                 10 CENT SUPER HI FIVE WAGERING

1

Yank My Rope

Finally got back on track here Thursday with an even 4th place finish, but lands in against a solid crew here and would have to pick things up even more.  I’ll watch another one first. 

2

West Coast Arturo

Has had some severe stamina issues here this season, and hard to see things changing in big field tonight.  Pass. 

3

Hoosier GB Diamond

A nice 2nd place finish when Mark Mac drove her 3 starts back, and I am sure he will be on the gas early to be sitting close to the lead once again.  Needs her absolute very best. 

4

Willing Heart

7yo mare went a lifetime best mile with Noble 2 starts back, and now picks up his services once again.  Anything similar to that effort puts her in the mix once again.  Noble opted here over #10.    

5

Baby Blue Pajamas

She has had some success here over the years, but appears to be a step or two behind her stablemate (#8) right now.  Lands in a perfect mid-pack post though, plenty of options for TS.  Your call. 

6

Shesgotwht everitis

Showed some signs of improvement with an even finish on Thursday, but is going to have to continue to improve in order to hang with the top ones in here. 

7

Ashley Force

Not sure what has got her into making breaks recently, but she wasn’t able to overcome that last one like she did 2 starts back.  She packs enough speed if she decides to mind her manners. 

8

JB’s Cutie

Closed from far off the pace to pick up a nice 2nd last time, and won the first mini-series final 2 starts back.  She will be flying late once again if she gets worked into it with any kind of smooth journey. 

9

Thank You Mamma

Tired late after an aggressive attempt last time, but I still think this mare has the ability to go with these on her best day.  Likely to get another large price from post 9, I’ll toss her on the ticket. 

10

Georgian Jiffyjane

Jiffy has raced evenly in her last few starts, but she doesn’t have a quick early turn of foot and there is no question she will have to do it from last tonight.  Not sure I like that scenario.  Noble opted to #4 instead.
