Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, August 23rd

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

Race 1                     Selections                                3-2-5-6

1

Show Me Some Skin

Had some mixed results on the KY Fair circuit, but appears to have landed in a tough spot here against stakes company.  Not tonight. 

2

Poker Place

Tough to gage off the results on the smaller ovals in Canada, and the move to the big track may help her with those breaking issues.  I’m sure they wouldn’t be shipping all the way here unless they thought she could go. 

3

Doc’s Hope

Wow!  This filly was ultra impressive in her Red Mile debut, drawing away down the lane after a tough first over grind against a solid field of aged mares.  No question she is the KYSS fav! 

4

Lady Buckeye

Saratoga invader parlayed a perfect trip into her first career victory last time, but she is going to need a lot more to keep up with the top fillies in this field. 

5

Shawnee Dancer

Pulled off the shocking upset at nearly 50-1 last time, beating a heavily favored KYSS 3yo colt down the lane.  She was set up for that off the quick fractions, but still showed a lot of guts to go by late.  

6

Scootie Best Lou

Absolutely tortured through a quick early tempo last time, and she expectedly tired late.  Any smoother journey should give her a shot at the minor awards. 

7

Miss Lucy O

Miss Lucy had a big win here in 54.4 as a 2yo, but doesn’t appear to have come back as well in her sophomore campaign.  Not sure she is ready for these just yet. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                4-3-2-5

1

Sgt Grit

Crushed overnight company last week, but lands in quite the shark tank here in stakes action.  Would take a big step up.   

2

Partner

Held his own against some solid company in Canada, and looks to be in a battle with #3 for the place spot behind the fav.  Will need his very best.  Noble opted here over #3.   

3

Caviart Key

Took on the best of the best last time at Flamboro going for $587k.  Actually was the KYSS runner up here last year.  Has his work cut out for him with #4, but should be able to lock up an on the board finish.  DN chose #2.   

4

Thinking Out Loud

Won the $1.5 million NA Cup at Mohawk earlier this summer, and is nearing in on $900k in earnings.  No question he is going to give this bunch something to think about.  Lands in opposite division of other standout, Bolt the Duer, but no worries we are going to see those two hook up eventually. 

5

Doc’s Zippy

Don’t be too hard on this guy, he fired out early through some quick opening fractions and actually got caught behind a dead horse down the lane.  I’ll try him underneath the favs in 4th

6

Jimmy Rip

Jimmy has rounded into form recently in Indy, but this is a BIG step up from NW’s events there.  Not tonight. 

7

Yakkity Yak Jack

Tons the best here on Sunday, after appearing to be hard to steer for his pilot.  Goes from taking on conditioned claiming company to one of the best in the country tonight.  Pass. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                6-5-3-7

1

Duck Crossing

A nice even effort against overnight company, but takes a step up to face some major league rivals tonight.  Not sure she is ready for these just yet. 

2

PerfectBeauty

Sharp Q’fer over sloppy track at Mohawk, but will need her very best to take on some nice 3yo fillies here. 

3

Serene Lady

Has developed a very nice late kick this season, and looks to have a big shot at the minor awards behind the fav.  

4

Delmary

Trotted evenly to finish 3rd in overnight last time, but asking quite a bit to hang with these. 

5

American Saint

The 3rd place finisher in last year’s $250k final has flashed some brilliant efforts sporadically throughout the year, but has had some breaking issues as well.  No question she has the talent, if she minds her manners. 

6

Northern Miss Hall

Still the queen until someone proves they can dethrone her.  The defending champ was undefeated in KYSS action last year, and appears to have landed in a comfortable spot to defend her title.  Must respect. 

7

Gotcha Girl

Finally appears to be back on track this season, but has hooked some tough rivals here in the opening leg.  Likely to have do it from last.  Maybe underneath.  Mark Mac opted  to #2 instead.   

8

Dazzling Valley

Has some early speed if Wrenn elects to use it, but stamina has been the major question.  It would take a lot more to hang around with these late. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                5-3-2-8

1

Ky All Star

Would take a lot of improvement to hang with these.  Not tonight. 

2

Cindy’s Flower

Went off as the odds on favorite in last year’s $250k KYSS final, only to make a break in stride behind the gate.  Finally appears to be heading in the right direction after the last two.  Packs plenty of speed.  ML chose over #3.    

3

T B Beach Girl

The defending KYSS champ had an absolutely brutal trip in her local debut from post 10, and somehow still managed to pick a check up.  Any smoother journey puts her right in the mix.  Lachance opted to #2 instead.    

4

Sandra’s onthebeach

Has been holding her own against overnight company in Columbus, but won’t be any day at the beach against this crew. 

5

Keene Angelic

Appears to be in fine form heading into KYSS action, and I must admit that the local AM effort was very impressive under no encouragement.  Lands in perfect mid-pack post.  Big shot. 

6

Hot Beach Girl

Never in it in an impossible spot last time at Big M, and although this shouldn’t be quite as tough as that crew, it may be a bit much still.  Pass. 

7

Caribbean Girl

The KY Fair Champ has hooked a tough group tonight, and she didn’t fire after sitting in the back off a quick opening half last time.  Needs more.  Smith opted to #5 instead.    

8

Park Lane Crystal

A runner up to #7 after a tough trip in KY Fair Final, but this filly fired back with an ultra impressive score against overnight company.  Granted it wasn’t an overly tough field, but she is heading in the right direction. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                6-4-7-1

1

Bugsy Malone

Nice AM effort over the track for a colt that appeared to be having some problems in NY.  Absolutely WIDE open behind the fav here.  Maybe. 

2

Sgt Matt

I must admit that I was a bit disappointed that he couldn’t hold off the filly last time in overnight company, after the race set up perfectly for him as the heavy fav.  She raced earlier, how did she do in opener?  Might be an indicator. 

3

Call Me Mr P

Mr P came from way downtown to finish up 3rd at Scioto last time, and his 4th place finish in last year’s final helped him pick up over $23k despite never hitting the board.  One of many with a shot underneath. 

4

Dragon Spike

Tried going down the road last time at The Meadows as the fav, but was collared late in the mile.  Not a bad effort, and I would expect Noble to put him in play early.  Might be in line for a nice trip behind the fav. 

5

Rodin

Doesn’t appear ready for these.  Pass. 

6

Bolt The Duer

Became the fastest horse EVER on a 5/8 track with his 47.4 win in the $500k Adios.  Lands in a soft spot for his local debut.  Put a circle around him. 

7

Heavenly Beaches

A winner in half of his seasonal starts, he was remarkably claimed 2 starts back for $30k.  New connections were happy enough to give him a try against stakes company.  Maybe underneath. 

8

He’s Shore Tan

Prior to the break last time, he had held his own against overnight company in PA.  Big step up here though.  

 

Race 6                     Selections                                2-4-3-9                    Start of the Pick 4                  See ticket at the end

1

Holligram

Has been having some major stamina issues recently against similar.  Would take a complete turnaround. 

2

B Q Bull

I must admit that I was fairly impressed with his 4th place finish last time, and note the barn change that took place prior.  Lands in potentially an easier spot here.  I’m on board. 

3

Cloverdale

Broke in the midst of what appeared to be a nice move last time, but I will point out that he is 0 for 25 LT.  I will try him underneath only. 

4

Tickle Me Grace

Tried this mare out for the win last time, and she put in a solid performance to finish 2nd at a big number.  Won’t get anywhere near that price tonight.  Trace gets the call for the first time as well.   

5

Diamond Deo

Q’fed against a couple of nice colts, but would still have to find a lot more speed to hang with the top ones. 

6

Fort Riley

Not much success since arriving locally.  Pass. 

7

Coyote’s Dream queen

Actually faired decent on the KY Fair circuit earlier this summer, but she hasn’t been able to find her rhythm since arriving locally.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement.  

8

Blueridge Elisa

Far back against similar company last time, and will likely be sitting far back from post 8 once again. 

9

Victoria Valley

Trotted evenly to finish 5th behind a nice colt last week, and should find this spot a bit more to her liking.  Still going to have to find some pop on the end of it. 

10

Moma Jean’s Crown

Added lasix in the AM, but has a tough assignment from way out here.  I’ll watch this one. 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                4-10-8-3

1

Miss panderosa Jones

Outsprinted late in a quick final quarter by her rivals in the Q’fer, but filly lands in a nice comfortable spot for her 2nd LT start tonight from the pole.  Should sit close.  Maybe. 

2

Jack N Water

An even effort in his first local try, but would have to pick it up quite a bit here. 

3

The Hit Lady

Has picked up some nice checks recently against similar, lands in another field where she should be close once again with her best effort. 

4

Southern Strong

Filly didn’t really have clearance down the lane in the last start, and raced very well to finish up a close 4th.  I think there is some talent here.  I’ll jump on board once again. 

5

Milburn

Hasn’t had much stamina in his recent efforts.  Would take a lot more to hang around late. 

6

Keene Destiny

Made two moves last start and was still hanging in there after a tough first over trip at the head of the lane, before tiring very badly late.  Hopefully she can end up with a smoother journey here.  Your call. 

7

Art’s Chance

Toured the oval from post 10 last time, and should continue to improve in his 3rd LT start tonight.  Not sure he is ready to take on the top ones just yet though. 

8

Real Party

South Fla invader has held her own against similar at Pompano, but has been off for nearly a month before tonight.  I’ll try and beat her at what is likely to be a short price. 

9

Tundra

Improved in the Q’fer after making a break, but lands in post 9 and is likely to be sitting far back.  I’ll watch another before endorsing. 

10

Blueridge Adalia

Absolutely sprinted away from her rivals in the AM here, and appeared to have plenty left in the tank.  I would expect Hagerman to be on the gas early from outside post.  Appears to have talent. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                5-9-8-1

1

Say It’s True

Got caught up in a big mile against Open company, and now lands on the pole in stakes company.  Appears to have solved breaking problems with the move to the red clay.  Shout sit close. 

2

Rapids N Currents

Solid effort to finish up 2nd in the $32k Review stake at Springfield, but I’m not convinced he is ready to hang with the top colts in here just yet. 

3

Red Falkor

Changed barns prior to the last two Q’fying efforts, but appears to still have a long way to go to hang with the favs in here. 

4

Sweet Ben

Doesn’t appear to be a sweet spot for Ben in only his 2nd LT start.  Pass. 

5

Enrico As

Managed to win on an off track from post 10 against solid overnight company north of the border last time, and appears to have really rounded into form recently.  No question he fits with these.  Must respect. 

6

Joyeux Dream

Yet to miss the board in 4 LT tries, but this is a giant step up to take on some very nice colts.  Would have to pick it up even more. 

7

Shawneewind

Has been okay since arriving locally, but not sure he can go with these just yet. 

8

Louie the Fourth

Has been facing some tough older rivals in overnight company at Indy, and appears to be a major player in here as well.  PW should be firing out for good early position.  Big shot. 

9

Awsome Valley

Razor sharp right now, and is in the midst of a nice campaign where he has been victorious in 4 of 6 starts.  Has nice tactical speed which should give TS plenty of options.  Should be close. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                6-7-1-2

1

Charming Dream

Lightly raced gelding is facing the toughest challenge of his brief career thus far, but he has been very impressive at Mohawk.  Lands in tougher of 2 divisions, needs his very best. 

2

Quel Bourbon

This guy quite honestly spotted the field 30 lengths in his last start, and went an absolutely unbelievable mile to end up 3rd.  I wish he had drawn in an easier spot, but he IS much better than he looks on paper.  Actually held off #6 in the AM Q’fer.    

3

Zot

Chi-town invader ships in for top connections, but lands in a very tough group.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

4

Victor Crum

Off to a nice start in his career, but this is asking a bit much for him to be ready to go with these in my opinion. 

5

Horizon Ridge

Completely wrapped up in his 1st LT win here last week, but is another that is taking a step up to the major leagues for the first time.  Would take a lot more. 

6

Fusion Man

Actually knocked off #7 here in the fair after a perfect pocket trip.  Never been worse than 2nd in 5 starts this season, and has certainly proven that he go with these.  Big shot. 

7

Prayer Session

Defending KYSS champ got roughed up against a nice older trotter in his last start, and tired a bit late to finish 3rd.  No question he is the one to beat, but I’ll take a shot against him with a short price looming for the win. 

8

Master Host

Crushed a weaker field in overnight, and has won 8 of 9 on the year.  A huge step up to take on stakes company, and lands in the tougher of 2 divisions.  Not sure I can endorse him against these. 

9

Dusenberg

Reeled off 4 in a row after finishing 3rd in his career debut.  He continues to improve with every start, and will have to improve even more to be close from outside post here.  No question he is razor sharp though. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                4-8-2-7

1

Northern Cindy

Tough trip in Scioto overnight last time, and doesn’t appear to pack the talent that her stablemate does in the other div.  Has to find some more stamina to hang around late.  Noble opted to #2 instead.   

2

Abby

A winner in 4 of 5 on the season, and I must admit that she sprinted by her rivals fairly easily in her only local start.  Big step up to take on stakes company, but she should be close with any similar effort.    

3

Glad Glidings

Glided by and held off #9 for a win last time, but is another that is taking a big step up against stakes company.  Should continue to improve.  Your call. 

4

Feel The Pressure

Looked good in local overnight after adding the hobbles back, and reunites with PW for her 4th start back on the year.  Should be on the right track now, and no question she will be on the lead.  Catch her if you can. 

5

Loveswept

Added lasix in the AM, and finished up a distant 2nd behind a nice colt.  I’ll watch for more improvement first. 

6

Spitfire Rose

Would have to find a lot more speed to hang with the top ones in here.  Pass.  Noble opted to #2 instead.    

7

Lindme yourvictory

Sat on #4’s back last time, and it was really hard to tell if she could’ve gone by had she gotten clearance.  Either way a nice 3rd place finish, and will likely leave in search of another good trip here.  Your call. 

8

Gisela As

Runner up in last year’s $250k final added hobbles for her last two, and she has had some late kick after getting away very sluggishly both times.  No question she is the one to beat.  Short price looming. 

9

Vesper As

Looks like a tough spot, and she has landed on the outside.  Not a good combo.  Pass. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 11                   Selections                                4-6-7-3

1

Hawaiian Alibi

Hasn’t really fired in his first two local tries, but appears to have landed in a wide open spot behind the fav.  Should sit close from the pole.  Noble opted here over #6.   

2

Tricky Grin

Couldn’t get by #7 in here last time after coming first over, and tired late to finish 5th.  Hopefully can work out a smoother journey from post 2, but still going to have to find some stamina late. 

3

Hezason ofeclipse

Takes a drop into the $2.5k claiming level for the first time, and will have to have a good finish here in leg 2 to make the mini-series final.  Wake up call coming with the class drop?  Maybe a live longshot. 

4

Keystone Nite Hawk

Absolutely sprinted away and dominated his rivals in the opening leg of the mini-series to equal his LT mark, but was claimed that night and debuts for new connections here.  Any similar effort should be good enough. 

5

Mor Storms Coming

Hasn’t had much to offer against similar thus far and retains longshot status tonight.  Pass. 

6

Big City

Never got worked into the race last time, and takes a significant drop to the $2.5k level here.  Appears to do his best work from close to the pace, should be blasting early.  No question he fits with these. 

7

Heart’s Prince

In a meet where we have seen some monumental upsets, this guy takes the cake!  Fought willingly to pull off the 77-1 shocker last time keying off a $24,000 trifecta.  I would hate to miss the party at that price, and show up for the funeral here at short odds, but any similar effort puts him squarely in the mix. 

8

Broadway Fame

Tried taking the step up, but is another dropper here and I think this level should be more to his liking.  Lands in a pretty solid crew for the class though, I may wait for an easier spot.  Stiltner opted here over #3.   

9

Little Water Tower

Hasn’t been finishing up his miles well recently, I’ll wait until we see some signs of life.   

10

Cruise to Fame

Barn has had a couple of bombers already this year, and this guy should be a pretty large number from outside post here.  Q’fed behind a nice 3yo colt.  Almost 3 months off though, I’ll watch one first. 

 

Race 12                   Selections                                1-2-5-8   

1

Blazing Tower

Probably the most WIDE open race on the card, and this guy has proven he can go with these since arriving locally.  Should be in line for a nice trip from the inside post.  I’ll take a flier. 

2

Blueridge Hall

Really liked this guy a lot last time, and I must admit that it was a rather dull effort after being set up perfectly with a quick opening half.  Not sure I can endorse him off that. 

3

Paul T

Needs to find a lot more pop in the last quarter to hang around late.  Pass on Paul. 

4

Under Act

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

5

Fox Valley Michael

Showed some improvement with a nice runner up finish last week, and lands in the softer of 2 divs in a perfect mid pack post.  Picks up the services of Noble as well.  All positive indicators. 

6

Our Little Pilgrim

Chased the heavy fav in the blowout mile last week, and was able to fend off his rivals late to hold 2nd.  Not a bad try, and there is no KNH in here.  Your call. 

7

Fortune Road

Followed #6 last time, and had to settle for 3rd after he was unable to pass him late.  Not sure things are going to get any easier here. 

8

Jaxx

12yo has been holding his own since arriving locally, and is another in here with a big shot.  Again, it’s absolutely wide open.  Demand value with whomever you choose. 

9

Ginnys doodle dandy

Tough task from post 9 against this crew, would have to pick it up quite a bit. 

10

All is Saidand Done

Perfect trip last time which resulted in an even 4th place finish.  Slammed with post 10, but he fits with these.  Price should be right.  Your call. 

 

Race 13                   Selections                                1-10-6-5

1

In The Money

Drops into our bottom condition for top barn, but has been on the shelf for over 3 months.  Decent Q’fer behind a very nice 3yo filly.  Barn has been on a roll with some nice priced winners.  Live longshot?  I think so. 

2

Bad Girlfriend

Got caught in an impossible spot last time, and was 3rd against similar company in the prior effort.  Needs her very best. 

3

Docdor Harvey

Toledo invader has had some stamina issues, and I will watch him go around the big track once before hopping on board. 

4

Mis conception

Has had some major stamina issues lately.  I’ll wait for some signs of life. 

5

Ashley Force

A decent even effort against similar company in her first local start, and appears to be facing a much weaker crew for this level tonight.  Maybe. 

6

It’s Fun

Tired after a tough trip at this level last week, and changes barns tonight.  Will we see any further improvement here?  Possibly. 

7

Sailors Sky

Lands in what appears to be the softest spot he has faced since arriving locally.  Should find this much more to his liking.

8

By The Sea Sally

Tired badly in her first local try, and it would take a complete turnaround here.  Not for me. 

9

Scootnick Bodeen

Q’fed nicely to finish 2nd behind a decent 3yo colt.  Has had some breaking problems in the past, but will likely be helped with the move to the big track.  Not an overly tough group.  Maybe. 

10

Boodro

Got completely wiped out behind a tiring horse in his first local try, and keep in mind this is only his 3rd start back on the season.  His best effort would put him close.  Price is right.  I’ll toss him on the ticket. 

 

Race 14                   Selections                                6-4-8-1-2                 SUPER HI-FIVE CARRYOVER $871

1

Paradise Ragtime

Disappointed in his first two local starts, but this guy IS much better than that.  Barn had a win the other night at a BIG price.  Would have to pick it up quite a bit though.  Your call. 

2

E R Prince Charmin

Arrived late on the scene and nearly pulled off a big upset, coming up only a neck short at odds of 21-1.  Lands back in a similar spot here.  Any similar effort puts him close once again. 

3

Sweetlittle heart

Appears to have landed in a fairly tough group, I’ll wait for a better spot. 

4

Unreal Appeal

Raced much better than I gave her credit for last time, coming up only ¾ of a length short against a solid field.  Appears to be heading in the right direction now.  No question the price will be appealing. 

5

Theshadow nose

Takes a step up tonight and appears to be in a bit tough.  Not tonight. 

6

Springhouse Rebel

Had a tough trip against a solid crew last time, and lands back in a much more comfortable spot here.  Only beaten a neck in the same level 2 back.  Big shot. 

7

Hoosier Rosie

Closed from nowheresville to be 2nd behind a heavy fav last week.  That was a big improvement, and she will need to follow it up with a similar effort to have a shot at the major awards against these. 

8

Yndra Hanover

Never really threatened for the win, but hung right with Open mares last time with a 27.3 kicker.  Reunites with Noble tonight, and is likely to be a short price.  She has disappointed here at short odds before. 

9

Primrose Path

Never in it in her first local start.  Q’fer was better, but needs even more. 

10

King’s Lightning

Made a break after running into traffic trouble last time, but gets slammed with post 10 in against a fairly solid group.  Tetrick will have to find a way to work him into the race.
