Red Mile Race Reviews

Thursday, September 6th

Track Handicapper – Gabe Prewitt

 

Race 1                     Selections                                2-4-3-5

1

Keystone Nite Hawk

Used hard in his first start for new connections in the mini-series final last time, and hasn’t been able to duplicate that first local start just yet.  Short field, but this isn’t an easy spot. 

2

Crazy Dan

Gapped for much of the mile last time, but really kicked into gear down the lane to sprint by his rivals en route to an easy score.  I think you’d be crazy to play against him after that.  Tetrick opted here over #5.   

3

Jenny the Genie

Lone mare in the field has been racing well against similar company in NY, but now she faces males as well.  Should pick up on the stretch to the bigger oval, but going to need her very best against these. 

4

Topville Diamond

Blazed through some quick fractions on the front end here on Saturday, and expectedly tired late and finished up far behind #2.  Certainly fits with these, hopefully Smith can find a way to ration out the speed. 

5

Richard Traci

Parlayed a perfect trip last time behind #4 into a solid 3rd place finish.  Certainly was an improved effort, and anything similar puts him in the mix once again.  Tetrick opted to #2 instead.    

6

Whispers Art

Has held his own at this level locally, but steps up to take on what appears to be a tough group for this class tonight.  I’ll wait for a better spot.  Nisonger opted to #3 instead.    

 

Race 2                     Selections                                6-7-5-3

1

Laffit

Makes his 2012 debut after an 11 month break, and I’ll have to watch him go around once first. 

2

Moreagio

Lands in what appears to be the easiest spot he has faced locally, but would still have to pick things up quite a bit. 

3

Jimmy Conway

Jimmy shows up after nearly an 8 month break, and I must admit that the AM work was pretty solid.  Has had some breaking problems in the past though, and his trainer elects to drive tonight as well.  Maybe. 

4

Roscoes Rib Rack

Roscoe has had some disappointing starts here, and many of those after getting off at short odds.  Picks up the services of Tetrick, but still needs his very best. 

5

Manaloha

Never in it on the sloppy track on Sunday night, but his prior starts here against similar company would put him squarely in the mix.  I can make a case. 

6

Main Street Hall

Continues to improve with each start back after almost a year on the shelf, and should be primed and ready to roll here in his 3rd start back on the year.  I’m on board. 

7

Parson Brown

Tough to gage the 12yo off his recent OH fair starts, but he does have a win at Scioto earlier this summer in 2:00.4, and the connections won a race here last week.  I’ll toss him on the ticket. 

 

Race 3                     Selections                                3-6-1-5

1

Indy Shooter

Looked to have things back on track after a sharp local Q’fer, but then ended up sick last Thursday night.  Not sure what to expect here, but I’ll try and beat him with a short price looming. 

2

Wheelie Fast

Has been racing evenly against similar company recently, but is going to have to find some pop on the end of it in order to contend for the major awards. 

3

Blueridge Casino

Probably hasn’t been facing much at the OH fairs, but ships in after winning 3 in a row.  Hard to fault him off those efforts, and he lands in a field with plenty of question marks.  I’m willing to roll the dice. 

4

Half Dozen Roses

Didn’t have anything to offer in her only local try, I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

5

Request to Win

Mare was actually racing at the fairs on the same days as #3 up in Ohio, and we really didn’t learn a lot from that race on Sunday night due to the extremely poor conditions.  Her best effort should put her close. 

6

Real Impressive

Hopelessly pinned in the other night behind a dead horse, and she was dead game in the prior start in finishing 2nd.  Any smoother journey makes her a major threat. 

7

Tundra

Raced evenly last week in finishing a distant 4th, and should continue to improve in his 4th LT start tonight.  Still not sure he is ready to go with the top ones just yet though. 

 

Race 4                     Selections                                1-5-6-2

1

Paul T

Cut out some quick fractions on Sunday on the sloppy surface, and expectedly tired a bit late.  Start prior was very good though, and I’m willing to jump on board once again.  Barn has been on a roll. 

2

Fortune Road

Closed well from last in the mini-series final to cut the margin to just over 2 lengths.  Should sit much closer from inside post against short field.  Underneath only. 

3

Tricky Grin

Has had some stamina issues since arriving locally, and would need a lot more to hang around late. 

4

KB’s Brock

Drops back in for a claiming tag after trying out conditioned company in his last couple, and hasn’t had a lot of success at this level prior.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

5

Catalina Kid

Talk about red flags, this guy just won for a $5k tag 2 starts back at Scioto, and went off as the heavy fav last time before finishing up the track.  Now he drops in for a $2.5k tag?  Something doesn’t seem right here…..   

6

Mor Than Enuf Russ

Closed well to finish 2nd here on Sunday on the off track, and was 3rd in a tough field the week prior.  Appears to be rounding into form at the right time.  I’ll use him underneath once again. 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 5                     Selections                                2-4-3-1

1

Cruise To Fame

I’m willing to give him an excuse in the last start over the bad track, and the start prior was very impressive off the layoff.  His best effort would put him right in the mix. 

2

Jaxx

Appeared to have LOT of pace on the end of it the other night but could not find any racing room and had to settle for 4th.  I’m willing to hop back on board after seeing that. 

3

Fox Valley Michael

A bit disappointed that he could not get by #5 last time as the heavy fav, but still not a bad effort to be 2nd.  He was incredible 2 starts back, but likely to be another short price here.  I’ll look elsewhere for value. 

4

Hezasonof eclipse

Sprinted away from his rivals on Sunday, and appears to have really rounded into form over the last couple of weeks.  Should be a major player once again. 

5

Heart’s Prince

Perfectly piloted the other night to pull off the 20-1 upset from post 10 in the mini series final.  Not sure things are going to work out that perfectly here though, and he is likely to be overbet after that. 

6

Blazing Tower

Lands in a tough group, and hasn’t had much to offer recently.   Pass. 

7

SBD First Blood

A big improvement last time, in blowing the board up to finish 2nd at 61-1 in our bottom condition.  Takes on claiming company once again here, and will have to pick it up even more. 

 

Race 6                     Selections                                2-7-3-4                    Pick 4 Starts Here                  See Ticket at the End

1

Hoosier Rosie

No luck at this level last time, and lands in what is probably an even tougher crew here.  Not tonight. 

2

Do It Best

Hung in there to finish up a close 4th in a big mile last time, and now takes a drop into what should be a more manageable level.  I’m willing to hop on board at what should be a nice price.  Wrenn opted here over #10.    

3

Sexy Smile

Never really got worked into the race last time before finishing a distant 4th, and was hopelessly pinned in the start prior.  I think she can hang with these, and I’ll try her underneath. 

4

Loco for Cocoa

Conservatively handled in his local debut off the brief layoff, before shaking loose late to finish up a decent 3rd in our bottom condition.  Takes a slight step up here, but any smoother journey could put him close. 

5

Hereiam Coolwater

Taking a substantial drop from the Open ranks into mid-level conditioned company, and she did have some success in an even finish 3 starts back against similar.  One of several with a shot. 

6

All Is Saidand done

Hasn’t had much luck against claiming company recently, and it doesn’t appear that things will get any easier here.  Pass. 

7

Papaknows best

Has been in against the sharks in Open company recently, and takes a substantial drop down to a much more comfortable level tonight.  No question the one to beat, but likely a very short price coming. 

8

Boodro

Continues to improve with each start this season, but steps up to take on the toughest group he has faced since arriving locally.  Certainly has his work cut out for him from way out here.  

9

Annrenee

Has raced evenly against solid company recently, but lands in a tough spot for this level tonight as well.  Won’t be easy from post 9. 

10

Shesgotwht everitis

Didn’t have anything to offer against claiming company on Sunday, and looks to have landed in a tough group here.  I’ll wait until we see some improvement.  Wrenn opted to #2 instead.   

 

Race 7                     Selections                                3-2-5-6

1

Holligram

Has disappeared late since arriving locally, and would take a complete turnaround here. 

2

Victoria Valley

Trotted evenly against similar here all season, and draws into what appears to be the softest field she has faced since arriving locally.  Must respect. 

3

I Look Foxy

Has been dominant on the OH fair circuit this summer, hitting the board in 10 of 14.  Lands in what appears to be a very comfortable spot for her local debut.  Lots to like. 

4

Quiet Charmer

Another fresh from the OH fairs, where she appears to have been holding her own recently.  Hard to gage off those efforts, but she should improve with the stretch to the big oval.  Your call.    

5

Wesley Gayle

A solid 3rd in the monsoon on Sunday, and is another facing what appears to be the softest spot she has landed in thus far in her brief career.  No question she fits with these. 

6

I am the King

The King was offstride early on Sunday, but I suppose we could probably excuse that given the off track.  Likely to fly under the radar a bit, and may be worth a long look at what should be a square price. 

7

Kacy’s Photo

Saved ground to an even 4th place finish on Sunday, and will have to pick it up even more to have any shot at the major awards. 

8

Buy Me Emeralds

Nothing to offer in her first local try, hard to endorse after that. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Race 8                     Selections                                5-8-6-3

1

Fort Riley

Hasn’t been anywhere close recently.  Pass. 

2

Iamalucky lucky man

Not bad for his local debut, but appears to have landed in an even tougher group tonight.  I’ll wait for a luckier draw. 

3

Moma Jean’s Crown

Appears to have really turned the corner since adding lasix 2 starts back, and was able to hang on for a solid 3rd after being aggressively handled last time.  Should continue to improve, but this isn’t an easy spot. 

4

B Q Bull

An even 2nd behind #8 last time, and may be a notch below the favs at this point. 

5

Perfect Beauty

Impressive rally off a perfect trip last time to finish up a game 2nd behind what appears to be a talented filly.  Anything similar to that effort should make her the one to beat. 

6

Glad Glidings

No luck in KYSS action, and now drops back into what should be a more manageable spot against overnight company.  Should be close with her best effort. 

7

Follow My Dreams

Lone 2yo appears to have landed in against some solid older rivals here.  I’ll wait for a better spot. 

8

Duck Crossing

Exploded away from her rivals last week en route to an easy victory as the heavy fav.  Appears to have landed in a bit tougher group tonight, but should be close once again. 

9

Leanto Scarlet

Trotted to an even 4th place finish last time, and now gets slammed with the outside post once again.  Appears to be a notch below the top ones in this crew. 

 

Race 9                     Selections                                6-3-1-5

1

Scootnick Bodeen

Continues to improve with each local start, and now lands on the pole after consecutive outside posts.  Appears to be one of many with a shot in a WIDE open field. 

2

Trishie Mae

Has tired badly in her last couple of local starts, and would have to completely turn things around to hang around late with this crew. 

3

Hawaiian Alibi

A decent effort here on the off track Sunday, grinding up late to finish 3rd.  He has certainly proven that he can go with this group in the past, and his best effort puts him right in the mix in wide open crew. 

4

Misconception

Hasn’t had anything to offer against similar in the last couple, I’ll wait until we see some improvement. 

5

Beach Bandit

Another that has improved in each of his local starts, and now lands in against what is probably the softest crew he has faced this season.  One of many with a big shot. 

6

Sailors Sky

Never in it on the off track Sunday, and I’m willing to throw that one out.  Start prior was very impressive, and I think he might be ready to pop in here at what should be a nice price.  Perfect mid-pack post. 

7

In the Money

Barn has been on a roll recently, but it would take this guy’s absolute very best to finish in the money here. 

8

Frontier Belle

Hasn’t had much stamina in her local starts, and would have to find a lot more to go with these. 

9

Yank My Rope

Not sure what has been going on here, she added lasix and didn’t race good at all on the off track on Sunday.  Her prior efforts would put her in the mix, but I’m not sure she is heading in the right direction. 

10

Twinkle firetwo

Slammed with post 10 in what appears to be a tough spot for her.  Pass. 

 

Race 10                   Selections                                2-7-4-1

1

Redur beautiful

Picked up a couple of checks against some tough stakes company in her last couple, and should find this spot to be much more to her liking.  Should sit close from the inside post as well.  Maybe. 

2

Heavenly Chocolate

Trotted evenly against some solid company thus far in her brief career, and is another that should find plenty of class relief in her first local try.  Barn has been on a roll here with talented youngsters. 

3

Double Dip

Well bred filly hasn’t shown a ton of ability just yet, I’ll wait for more. 

4

Perfect Alliance

First time starter Q’fed nicely, but hooks a competitive crew for her debut.  Any improvement from the morning work and she should be able to trot with these. 

5

King Jesse

Held his own against mid-level stakes company in Indy, but has developed some breaking problems along the way as well.  Likely to be in line for a conservative steer after the miscue in his last. 

6

Futuristic Bride

Added hobbles for those last couple against mid-level stakes company in PA, but hasn’t been able to find anymore stamina recently.  Would take a lot more. 

7

Alfredo Dream

Not sure why he made the break last time, but he finished up a nice 4th behind a very nice trio in the start prior in $15k KYSS.  There is plenty of talent here, any smooth journey should put him close. 

8

Caribbean Dream

Appears overmatched against these.  Pass.
