Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, September 27th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                2-1-5-7

1

Benearthe beach

($60k HB yearling) Appears to have really turned the corner in her last couple tries against mid-level PA stakes company.  No question she is heading in the right direction, and lands in a WIDE open field here. 

2

Diligent Prospect

($20k Lex yearling) A bit ironic that the only maiden in the field turns out to be the highest money earner thus far, as she has added to the bankroll with a couple of stakes runner up finishes.  Must respect. 

3

Hippie Chic

($8k Lex yearling) Hard to gage her Ontario tries on the smaller tracks, but she has certainly been holding her own against stakes company.  Should pick things up with the return to the big track, again its wide open.

4

All Perfect

Came up empty in the $114k PASS the last time we saw her, and has now disappeared for nearly two months.  No question a softer spot tonight, but is all perfect?  I’m not sure.  Campbell opted to #1 instead.   

5

Somewhere inheaven

($40k Lex yearling) Canadian invader has raced very well against similar company recently, which earned her the slight nod as the fav in here.  Her best effort puts her squarely in the mix once again. 

6

Iwannabe justlikeu

Sprinted home in a solid local Q’fer, and owns a couple of wins against mid-level PA stakes company prior.  I could make a case for anyone in the field here.  Your call.   

7

My Sweet Mandy

Sprinted home to finish up a sharp 2nd last time against #5 at Mohawk, and should continue to improve here in only her 4th LT start.  I would expect another off the pace rally.  Maybe. 

 

Race 2                     Selections                                1-4-10-8

1

Omnipotent

($30k HB yearling) Trotted evenly against a couple of solid fields locally in the Kindergarten, and now lands on the pole in what appears to be a much softer spot.  I’m ready to hop on board. 

2

Stirling Bonzai

($40k Lex yearling) Has had some severe stamina problems thus far in her brief career, and she would have to pick things up quite a bit to hang with the top ones in here. 

3

Stacelita Dream

Canadian invader has been ok against overnight company thus far, but not sure she is ready to hang with these just yet.  I’ll watch one first.  Christensen opted to #5 instead.    

4

Winky’s Truffle

Not sure why she made the break last time, but I can tell you that the prior start was very impressive.  Gets Lachance back tonight as well.  I think she could hit the ticket in here at a nice price.  ML opted here over #6.   

5

Mary’s Master

($2.2k Del yearling) Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to go with these just yet.  Pass.  Christensen opted here over #3.    

6

Ballet Slippers

($75k HB yearling) First local start wasn’t all that bad, but this filly wanted no part of the starting gate last time and had 2 chances after a recall initially.  Not sure I can hop on board after that.  Lachance opted to #4 instead.    

7

Rock on Mermaid

($8k Lex yearling) PA invader has been trotting evenly in her last several, but it appears she would have to pick things up a bit to hang with the top ones in here. 

8

Rosie’s Warrior

($42k HB yearling) Continues to improve with each start, finishing up a close 4th last time after saving ground throughout.  Not an overly tough crew here, any further improvement should put her close.  JC opted to #9.    

9

Matriarch Hanover

($115k HB yearling) Well bred filly appears to have a touch of early speed, and I would expect her to float off the gate to find good early position in a field with potential breakers.  Campbell opted here over #8.    

10

Sheena’s Shadow

($97k Lex yearling) Finished up a nice 3rd against stakes company in her career debut at Vernon, but regressed into a break last time in PA.  Not sure what to expect tonight, take a good long look at her on the track.  

 

Race 3                     Selections                                5-1-6-2

1

Royal Assets

($45k HB yearling) Very talented daughter of Donato has only missed the board once in 8 starts.  No question she has plenty of talent, but she has come up on the short end in her only two meetings with #5. 

2

Ma Chere Hall

($18k Lex yearling) Dewey first cropper parlayed a perfect trip into a very close 2nd place finish last week in the Kindergarten.  Might be just a notch below the favs in here at this point though. 

3

Coffeecake Hanover

($25k HB yearling) Couldn’t hang with #5 when they hooked up 2 starts back in the $200k PASS Final, but still held on for a decent 4th place finish.  Packs plenty of early speed, I would expect YG to have her in play. 

4

Feather Your Nest

Hasn’t been able to hang with #’s 1 or 5 on the PASS circuit thus far, and it doesn’t appear that things are going to get any easier in here. 

5

Frau Blucher

($21k HB yearling) Talk about a bargain, this filly has yet to miss the board in 9 tries and has already banked over $330k!  Very talented freshman just like her sire was.  Continues to get better and better! 

6

Miss Steele

($22k Lex yearling) Got knocked off as the heavy fav here last time, but don’t be too hard on her because she never really found clearance until too late.  That being said, I’m not sure she is ready to hang with the favs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                1-2-5-4

1

Upfrontlucky carol

($35k HB yearling) Has been holding her own against some very tough company on the PASS circuit, and finished right on the line with #5 in here 2 starts back in the $200k Final.  Should sit close from the pole. 

2

Morningstar

Regally bred filly out of the World Champ $2 million winner Passionate Glide (one of my all time favs), not to mention sired by Cantab Hall – the leading money winning sire in 2012 thus far.  She finished up a close 2nd behind #1 three starts back.  Pierce resumes the driving duties tonight.  Lots to like. 

3

Karalta Bye Bye

($20k HB yearling) Not sure she is ready to hang with this crew just yet.  Pass. 

4

Caneel Hall

($40k Lex yearling) Picked up the final check in big money KYSS Final, but appears to be a notch below these right now.  I’ll wait until we see some further improvement. 

5

Aspidistra Hanover

($50k HB yearling) Held off #1 in here for 2nd in the $200k PASS Final last time, and has been solid on that circuit all season.  Any similar effort puts her close once again. 

6

Sina

A distant 3rd behind #’s 1 & 2 two starts back at Pocono, but hasn’t really progressed any further to this point.  Would take a lot more here. 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                1-2-5-4

1

Shared Past

Trotted evenly against the best of the best in the $448k Peaceful Way stakes last time at Mohawk, and has proven that she can hold her own against some tough fillies.  Handily defeated #5 back on 8-10 in Jersey.  Maybe. 

2

Vintage Oaks

Made a break around the opening turn here last time, after it appeared that she had really rounded the corner in her last couple of tries.  No question she packs plenty of speed if she minds her manners.  Price should be right. 

3

Changed It All

Held her own against mid-level stakes company in PA all season, but faces a big step up to the major leagues tonight to take on a solid crew.  Not sure I can endorse her against these just yet. 

4

Alphadoodle

($85k Lex yearling) Tired late on the off track last time at Tioga, but had been rolling on the NYSS circuit prior.  Should really improve with the stretch out to the big track, I can make a case. 

5

Time To Kill

($25k Lex yearling) Dominated as the heavy fav last time in smaller Freehold stake, and came up only a nose short prior for $150k at The Big M.  Should be in line for a nice trip from mid-pack post.  JC opted here over #6. 

6

Parlia Hanover

($90k HB yearling) Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top ones in here just yet.  Pass.  Campbell opted to #5 instead.    

7

Antsy Dancey

($11k HB yearling) Finished up just behind #1 in both of her Mohawk starts most recently, but has proven that she can hold her own with some top fillies this season as well.  No question she fits with these. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                8-2-6-3                    Start of $10,000 Guaranteed Pick 4      See Ticket at the end

1

Ideal Portrait

($50k Lex yearling) Ended up a distant 4th behind some nice fillies last time at Vernon, and should find this spot much more to her liking.  Lands on the pole as well.  Your call.  Tetrick opted to #2 instead.   

2

Hobe Sound

($50k Lex yearling) A couple of ground saving journeys to begin her career at Philly, and she lands in an absolutely WIDE open field here to kick off the $10k Pick 4.  Tetrick opted here over #’s 1 & 8. 

3

Make Some Memories

Not sure why we didn’t see this filly locally in the KYSS, but she has held her own against similar company in Canada recently.  Again, it’s wide open!  Demand value with whomever you choose.  Campbell opted to #6.    

4

Stars N Bars

No luck against stakes company last time in Indy, and was even in prior starts against overnight company in Chicago.  Lands in a competitive crew here, not sure I’m ready to hop on board tonight. 

5

Kiss My Yankee

Never in it last time in Delaware stake, but keep in mind that was a very quick mile and she had an outside post.  Lands in perfect mid-pack post here, but would still have to pick it up a bit. 

6

Take Into Account

Another Canadian invader for Team McIntosh, and I decided to Take Into Account the fact that Campbell did opt here over her stablemate, #3. 

7

Naked at the Beach

OH invader would have to find a lot more pop late to get by her rivals in here.  I can’t endorse her against these. 

8

Think Pink

($75k HB yearling – highest YC sold in ’11) Had some sneaky late pace when she finally fanned wide down the lane last time to finish up 4th.  This is possibly an even easier spot here.  Tetrick opted to #2 instead. 

9

All On My Own

We don’t see too many Iowa invaders here at the GC, but that’s just what we have here.  Tough to gage her from those small tracks, but she was well beaten back on 9-3 at Running Aces.  Appears overmatched. 

10

Baez

Not quite sure what to expect here.  Filly has shown to have some speed and ability, but she never looked comfortable scoring down on the track last time before breaking behind the gate.  Hmmm…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 7                     Selections                                3-1-4-2

1

Lady Likes Muscles

Trotted evenly in both of her starts thus far, and now lands on the pole here in what appears to be a much softer crew.  Picks up Pierce as well.  All positive indicators. 

2

Vallas Cowgirl

($18k HB yearling) Another that has trotted evenly against tougher company locally thus far, and should be in line for a nice trip from inside post.  Maybe. 

3

Speed Dial

Came from far back on the off track last time in Canada to pick up 3rd, and was parked every step of the mile in the start prior.  Should improve with the move to the big track, and picks up JJ.  Live longshot?  Yes. 

4

Thistle Dhu

($60k Lex yearling) Appeared to solve the breaking problems with the addition of trotting hobbles last time, but she was uncontrollable on the front blazing to the half in 55.  Can YG ration out the speed?  Not sure. 

5

Windsun Mohavi

($27k HB yearling) First time starter trotted decently in her local AM work, and now lands in a fairly suspect crew for her career debut.  Any further improvement puts her right in the mix. 

6

Redur beautiful

Has been ok here this season, but would likely have to pick things up quite a bit still to contend for any of the major awards.  Your call. 

7

Double Dip

($50k HB yearling) Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with the top ones in here right now.  Pass. 

8

Blue Diamonds

($140k Lex yearling – Highest Dewey filly in ’11) Had been trotting evenly here against KYSS company this season, but has regressed into some bad habits recently.  She can go with these on her best day though. 

9

Muscles R Us

($5k Lex yearling) Doesn’t appear to pack a lot of early speed, and likely to be coming from far back here from post 9.  Not sure I like her with that in mind. 

10

Perfect Alliance

($75k Lex yearling) Made breaks in both career tries thus far, I’ll wait until we see some improvement.  Lachance opted to #8 instead.   

 

Race 8                     Selections                                1-9-8-5

1

Power Pack Hanover

($120k Lex yearling) It seems as if I see another talented son or daughter of Somebeachsomewhere pop up every day.  First time starter shows a good morning work at Pocono.  Not overly tough group here. 

2

Guarding the Gold

Scioto invader would have to pick things up quite a bit to hang with the top ones in here.  Pass. 

3

Royal Engagement

Has held her own on the smaller Canadian strips thus far, and should continue to improve with the stretch out to the mile track tonight.  Fairly wide open crew in here.  Maybe.  Campbell opted to her stablemate (#5) instead. 

4

Apple

($140k Lex yearling – highest AM filly sold in ’11) First time starter appears to be improving with each Q’fer, but I’ll watch her go around under the lights once before hopping on board.  Campbell opted to #5 instead.   

5

Shared Account

We haven’t seen her in action in almost a month, but she is probably facing a bit easier company here than in her most recent efforts at Mohawk.  Her best effort puts her in the mix.  Campbell opted here over #’s 3 & 4. 

6

Caviart Savannah

OH invader appears to pack some speed, but also has had some breaking problems thus far in her brief career.  No question she can go with these IF she minds her manners.  Your call. 

7

Let Her Rock

($30k HB yearling) I must admit that I wasn’t overly high on her last time, but she raced very well to finish up 2nd behind a 3yo.  Should continue to improve in only her 2nd LT try. 

8

Aunt Caroline

($82k HB yearling) Make no mistake, that was a solid duo that beat her out here last week.  Packs plenty of early speed if TT elects to blast.  Another that should continue to improve in 2nd LT start.  Tetrick opted here over #10.    

9

O Narutac Rockette

($11k HB yearling) Appeared headed for a nice payday in $68k Babic Final last time in Jersey, before making a costly break.  Should benefit with the move to the big track.  I can make a case here.  

10

Full Service

($15k Lex yearling) Hasn’t been able to seal the deal in 2 local starts thus far, and things certainly aren’t going to get any easier against tough crew from post 10.  Not tonight.  Tetrick opted to #8 instead.    

 

Race 9                     Selections                                1-7-2-5

1

Mistery Woman

($102k Lex yearling) After watching the first 2 starts of her career, I don’t think there is any question that she was worth every penny of that 6 figure price last fall.  A ton of talent, but taking on some TOP fillies here.  David Miller opted here over #7, I’m willing to do the same.    

2

Fashion Athena

Has been solid all season on the PASS circuit, but hooks a tough crew for her local GC debut.  Will have to improve even more to hang with the fav in here. 

3

Right Away

($22k Lex yearling) Appears overmatched against these right now.  Pass. 

4

Cupcake

($35k Lex yearling) Picked off a lesser crew here locally, but there aren’t any cupcakes in this field.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Lachance opted to #5 instead.    

5

Handover Belle

Closed from far back to finish up 3rd in the $448k Peaceful Way last time at Mohawk, far behind #7 in here.  Should sit much closer in short field tonight though.  Maybe underneath.  Lachance opted here over #4.    

6

UF Tadys Donato

($35k HB yearling) Parlayed a perfect trip into a 2nd place finish behind #1 last time at Delaware, but lands in quite the shark tank here for her local debut.  Not tonight.   

7

To Dream On

($200k HB yearling – highest CW sold in ’11) Came up a neck short in the $448k Peaceful Way in her only career defeat last time.  Looks to get back on track here, and is certainly the one to beat.  In a fairly shocking move, David Miller opted to #1 instead.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                9-2-5-8-10                                               10 CENT SUP ER HI FIVE WAGERING

1

Lipstick Rose

Canadian invader has been solid against overnight company on the small ovals, but would have to improve even more to hang with the top ones in big bulky field tonight.  Your call. 

2

Herculotte Hanover

($40k HB yearling) Not thrilled with the sick scratch last time, but I have been a big fan of hers after a couple of solid local performances.  Likely to sit close from inside post.  Must respect. 

3

Chakra Hanover

($7k HB yearling) Has been ok against overnight company in PA, but would have to pick things up quite a bit to hang with the top ones in here. 

4

Gliding to Glory

Trotted evenly in mid-level stake at The Meadows last time, and appears to be one of many with a shot here in the wide open finale.  Likely to get a nice trip from mid-pack post.  Tetrick opted to #9 instead.    

5

My America Bi

($30k Lex yearling) Got up by the slimmest of margins in the $38k stake last time in PA, and is yet another with a shot here in a fairly wide open 11 horse field.  Any further improvement puts her close once again. 

6

Southwind Sauna

($100k Lex yearling) Appeared to be on the right track after adding hobbles, but regressed back into some bad habits since arriving locally.  I’ll wait until we see some signs of improvement.  DM opted to #8 instead.    

7

Podagros

($25k HB yearling) Doesn’t appear to pack the speed to hang with these just yet, and has missed almost a month prior to tonight.  I’ll watch one first.  

8

Richesse Oblige

Absolutely perfect 2nd over steer last time to finish up a close 3rd.  Appears to be in a bit softer tonight than she has faced in those last couple.  Her best effort should put her very close once again.  DM opted here over #6.    

9

With Sugar

($160k HB yearling) Added hobbles here in the AM which appeared to solve the breaking problems for now.  She has a TON of speed if she minds her manners.  No question she is blasting from way out here. 

10

Déjà vu Too

($40k Lex yearling) Speaking of Deja Vu, this filly hasn’t started inside post 8 now for what is the 5th consecutive time!  YG will have to find a way to work her into the race. 

11

Fancy Fern Yankee

Not a big fan of 2nd tier trotters, particularly 2yo’s that have shown breaks in the past.  I’ll wait for a better spot.
