Jeff Siegel's Del Mar Analysis - Thursday, July 229, 2021

July 29, 2021

Specifically designed for the rolling exotic player, Jeff Siegel’s “Daily Analysis and Wagering Strategies” isolates those horses that should be included in daily doubles, pick-3s, pick-4s, pick-5s, and the pick-6.
*
The selections are posted at 6:00 a.m. and updated later in the morning to reflect late scratches and changes (approximately 10:30 a.m.). For additional commentary, follow us on twitter @jsiegelracing.
*
*
Grade Descriptions: Grade A=Highest degree of confidence; Grade B=Solid Play. Grade C=Least preferred or pass; Grade X=probable winner but likely at odds too short to play.


RACE 1: Post: 2:00 PT Grade: B-
Use: 1-Morning Addiction; 6-Flat Out Joy

Forecast: The opener is a restricted (nw-2) $25,000 claiming sprint for fillies and mares that offers little to work with. Flat Out Joy earned a speed figure two races back that would easily win this race, and with a warranted class drop to her cheapest level ever the R. Ellis-trained mare seems the logical top pick. She also makes a positive jockey switch to A. Cedillo and projects to be the controlling speed, so we like her on top despite coming from a barn that is just 1-for-38 this year. Morning Addiction is “raised” from $20,000 but is “dropping” from a non-winners of three, so theoretically this is an easier field than she faced when finishing third in her comeback last month at Santa Anita. The lightly-raced daughter of Carpe Diem earned a career top speed figure in that outing (better than par for this level) so if she can extract herself from the rail in this elongated sprint she should have every chance. We’ll have tickets using both in our rolling exotics with preference on top to Flat Out Joy.
*
*
RACE 2: Post: 2:30 PT Grade:
Single: 4-Scotish Star

Forecast: Scotish Star is an unbeaten import from Argentina, where she followed a seven-length debut maiden win over five furlongs with a victory in a Grade-1 main track miler for 3-year-old fillies by that same margin. The Grade One stakes designation notwithstanding, she really didn’t beat much in that race, so it’s difficult to accurately classify her abilities, but she has received a solid foundation to be fit and ready for her first race since October and the works indicate considerable quality. Listed at 9/5 on the morning line but likely to go lower in a field that appears below par for the level, the R. Mandella-trained filly can be used as a no-value rolling exotic single and in the win pool if she doesn’t get hammered too hard on the tote.
*
*
RACE 3: Post: 3:00 PT Grade: B+
Use: 3-Seven Sisters; 4-Babe’s Got Appeal; 10-So Very Smart

Forecast: So Very Smart projects to be perfectly situated outside the leaders in this abbreviated sprint for maiden $50,000 state-bred fillies and mares and should make the most of what has all the makings of a golden trip. The D. O’Neill-trained filly sports the route-to-sprint, turf-to-dirt, maiden to maiden claiming angles, so at 8-1 on the morning line we’ll expect her best effort in her second start following a claim. Babe’s Got Appeal displayed good speed in a solo gate work over the local main track earlier this month (5f, 1:00.4hg with blinkers) in a move that should make her the one to fear most. The barn has good stats with first-time starters, so at this abbreviated sprint trip the daughter of Kafwain is intriguing at 4-1 on the morning line. Seven Sisters, in the frame in her first two career starts when facing maiden special weight foes up north, adds blinkers after flashing speed but weakening late at even money at Pleasanton last month. Maybe she’ll improve at this level at this trip, though apparently, she’s not one to trust. You can toss her in as a back-up or a saver.
*
*
RACE 4: Post: 3:30 PT Grade: B-
Use: 5-Red Storm Risen; 6-First Premio

Forecast: Midwest invader First Premio is dropping in his first start off the claim by J. Mullins from $62,500 to $40,000 and that’s not normally a healthy sign but considering today’s purse ($72,000) and the available ship-and-win bonus money this might be a case of simply trying to steal a purse. The ex-classer is reunited with U. Rispoli, who won on him two races back at Churchill Downs, and in a race that seems likely to have a decent amount of speed signed on, the 7-year-old deep closer may be able produce the last run. Red Storm Risen is another seeking that bonus money after shipping in from Belmont Park. Freshened since May but looking sharp in the a.m. for P. D’Amato, the son of Stormy Atlantic isn’t as fast on numbers as First Premio but is relatively lightly raced (just 10 starts) and probably has room to improve for his new connections. He should enjoy a good second flight, stalking trip and then have every chance from the quarter pole home.
*
*

Del Mar Race 5: Post: 4:00 PT Grade: X
Single: 4-Madame Barbarian

Forecast: Old pro Madam Barbarian, a winner of 13 races from 79 starts to go along with 24 other placings, should be able to find a way to win this $10,000 claiming sprint for fillies and mares. Beaten at odds-on when third two races back but then performing much better in a highly rated race when third again at 17-1 in a turf sprint vs. tougher last month, the J. Mullins-trained mare shows a prior win over the Del Mar main track while hitting the board in her two other starts, so she looks to have found a proper spot to regain her winning form. However, at 9/5 on the morning line and likely to go a bit lower, she may not offer a whole lot of wagering value. You can use her in the rolling exotics and a possible single or simply sit out the race.
*
*
RACE 6: Post: 4:30 PT Grade: B
Use: 2-Chasingserendipity; 3-Cecile’s Chapter; 9-American Bourbon

Forecast: This $40,000 claiming turf miler restricted to 3-year-olds requires considerable coverage in rolling exotic play. Chasingserendipity, listed at 8-1 on the morning line, seeks her third straight win after a couple of sharp grass performances at Golden Gate fields, a maiden $20,000 score in early May followed by a nice starter’s allowance tally with a career top speed figure in early June. Originally claimed for $15,000 and remaining well-above that price today, the J. Wong-trained daughter of Vancouver employs an ideal second flight, stalking style, lands a good inside post, and seems spotted for another major effort. Wong’s other entrant, American Bourbon, is another Golden Gate shipper with excellent recent grass form and attracts F. Prat. She must leave from the far outside post but has good early speed and could easily get over and secure a comfortable pace stalking position before the field hits the first turn. A versatile type, she can be tough on the lead but has shown the ability to stalk and pounce as well. Cecile’s Chapter, runner-up in her last pair at Churchill Downs, fit well on speed figures on this circuit at this level for M. Maker, who has won with a couple of Midwest shippers during the early part of the season and has another live one here. The daughter of Cairo Prince will be doing her best work late.
*
*
RACE 7: Post: 5:00 PT Grade: B+
Use: 1-Lucky Peridot; 3-Lady Mystify

Forecast: Lady Mystify broke her maiden by 18 lengths at Santa Anita in February in her first try around two turns but then disappeared. Included in a recent installment of our Clocker’s “Primed and Ready” list, she returns on the one-level raise with a series of workouts that indicate she’s just as good now as before, perhaps even better, so let’s go with the lightly-raced, promising daughter of Bernardini on top in this main track miler for fillies and mares. Lucky Peridot also is coming off a win, hers coming less than a month ago at Los Alamitos in a performance that earned a better Beyer speed figure (78) than the one assigned to Lady Mystify’s winning race (69). Lucky Peridot, though, is a five-year-old mare with less potential than her 3-year-old rival but considering the speed figure discrepancy and her attractive morning line (4-1), she’s worth including on your ticket as well.
*
*
RACE 8: Post: 5:30 PT Grade: B-
Use: 6-Over Attracted; 8-Brilliant and Yoo

Forecast: Brilliant and You moves up a notch for new trainer R. Ellis following a third-place finish as the 6/5 favorite in a $25,000 claiming grass miler at Santa Anita last month, a race in which she really had no excuses. However, thanks to the always-popular blinkers off angle, the daughter of Include has a right to improve, and in a field lacking pace she might inherit the role as the controlling speed. U. Rispoli stays aboard and knows her well. Over Attracted drops into a seller for the first time and at this level the J. Sadler-trained filly may improve enough to pose a threat. Her grass record (winless in 10 starts) hardly inspires confidence, but she has numbers that make her dangerous and she projects to settle into a second flight early position and then have her chance to grind away.

Jeff Siegel's Saratoga Analysis - Thursday, July 29, 2021

July 29, 2021

Specifically designed for the rolling exotic player, Jeff Siegel’s “Daily Analysis and Wagering Strategies” isolates those horses that should be included in daily doubles, pick-3s, pick-4s, pick-5s, and the pick-6.na Summer

Forecast: A full field of restricted (nw-3) $35,000 older claimers makes this race extremely challenging.na Summer ran well when a close fourth in a tougher first -level allowance event last month and takes a realistic class drop for the money run.na; 9-Flipping Fun

Forecast: The Pick-6 begins with an ugly bottom-rung maiden claiming state-bred sprint for older horses.na shows up in a seller for the first time and returns to the main track, so if he can regain his best form from last spring the H. DePaz-trained colt can handle this field. Ravizzol, listed at 15-1 on the morning line, was beaten 18 lengths in his debut in a maiden $40,000 dash in May but was “only” 12-1 and did show a bit of early speed. He returns with a healthy series of workouts, picks up L. Saez, and may be better than his first race shows. Flipping Fun is an 18-race maiden and clearly not one to bank on, but he’s a first-time gelding and has finished in the frame in two of his last three starts with reasonable speed figures for this level. At this extended sprint distance, the son of Central Banker should make some noise late.
*
*
RACE 6: Post: 3:55 ET Grade: B
Use: 2-Halo of Fire, 4-Empress Tigress; 5-Her World; 7-Benbang

Forecast: Maiden juvenile fillies sprint five and one-half furlongs on grass in what appears to be a strong field matching several highly regarded first-time starters, including a pair of W. Ward-trained newcomers that have shown extremely well in the morning. Her World, from the first crop of the brilliant European sprinter Caravaggio, looked like a high quality, win-early type in a pair of recent grass breezes around the dogs over the Saratoga (“Oklahoma”) training track and may be be ready to win right now. The same can be said for Halo of Fire, a Munnings filly who has trained like she’s a lot quicker than her moderate times might indicate. Empress Tigress, a daughter of the freshman stallion Classic Empire, looked terrific when smoking a quarter mile in 20 2/5 seconds at the OBS April sale after which she brought $410,000 through the ring. She’s a lovely mover from a barn that excels with first-time starters. We’ll also toss in Benbang, highly impressive when breezing a furlong in 10 seconds flat in Ocala during the June sale, where the Shanghai Bobby filly was purchased for what might be bargain at $65,000. We’ll try to get by using just these four in our rolling exotics, leaving out other well regarded runners who hail from the barns of McGaughey, Brown, Clement, and Mott. It’s that kind of race.
*
*
RACE 7: Post: 4:29 ET Grade: B-
Use: 1-Abiding Star; 3-Hieroglyphics; 4-Attentive

Forecast: This $40,000 inner turf claimer for older horses is yet another on today’s highly challenging card that requires a significant spread in rolling exotic play. Hieroglyphics, a $25,000 claim by D. Schettino (from M. Maker), returns on the double jump despite being away since late May, a sign of confidence, and if he returns as well as he left the veteran gelding can score again despite the class hike. A three-time winner over the Saratoga turf course, the veteran son of Pioneerof the Nile switches to the barn’s “go to” rider L. Saez and should settle somewhere in the second flight and then have his chance to blast home when it counts. Attentive, now in the R. Diodoro barn after a $40,000 claim (also from M. Maker) last month, returns for the same price and should be tough once again after winning two of his last three starts with solid numbers for the level. The son of Power Broker can lay within range if the pace flow dictates but probably is most comfortable if allowed to lag early and take hold late. Abiding Star, the likely pacesetter and therefore drawn just where he wants to be on the rail, is a perfect one-for-one at Saratoga, having scored in sharp style last year at this level in gate-to-wire fashion. If allowed to be the controlling speed without pressure, the son of Uncle Mo could easily get brave and never look back.
*
*
RACE 8: Post: 5:05 ET Grade: B+
Use: 1-Secondary Market/1a-Motivated Sellerr; 7-Malibu Mischief

Forecast: Klaravich Stables and C. Brown are represented by a powerful coupled entry of Secondary Market and Motivated Seller in this second-level allowance main track sprint for fillies and mares and both are capable of winning if ready off long vacations. On pure form Motivated Seller is the better of the two. She hasn’t been seen since finishing unplaced in the La Brea S.-G1 at Santa Anita last December but was a highly impressive debut winner and also has won off nine month layoff, so we know she can fire fresh. Recent workouts appear good enough to have her fit and ready. Secondary Market, off the track since November, is another that has proven successful off a layoff and also shows a nice win over the Saratoga main track with a career top speed figure last year. Together they make a formidable team and are listed at 6/5 on the morning line. Malibu Mischief, an 11-time winner from 28 starts, appears to be the quickest in the field and will take them as far as she can. She returns to her favorite surface (dirt) and is a two time winner at the Spa, so while her recent form is below her best we’re expecting the R. Rodriguez-trained daughter of Goldencents to take this field a long way at 8-1 on the morning line.
*
*
RACE 9: Post: 5:39 ET Grade: B
Use: 3-My Boy Tate; 5-Wuddu U Think Now

Forecast: Wudda U Think Now returns to state-bred competition in this year’s edition of the John Morrissey H., and after chasing home Beau Liam here 12 days ago we suspect the son of Fast Anna will greatly appreciate the class relief. First or second in six of nine career outings and extremely fast on speed figures, the R. Rodriguez-trained gelding can take heat and dish it out, and with the switch to I. Ortiz, Jr. we’re expecting to see his best stuff today. My Boy Tate is co-high-weighted at 123 lbs. (equal with Our Last Buck) and is dangerous with anything close to his old form. Away since early May, the seven-year-old gelding was third in this race last year and is more than good enough to win off the bench if ready. The works look promising and the M. Nevin barn has strong stats with returnees, so this son of Boys of Tosconova is a serious player and a “must use.” There are a few others in the field that warrant consideration, at least as back-ups, but we’ll sink or swim using just the two listed above in our rolling exotics.
*
*
RACE 10: Post: 6:13 ET Grade: B-
Use: 4-Wicked Happy; 8-Gabby Squared

Forecast: Gabby Squared appears well-spotted to graduate in this maiden $40,000 middle distance turf affair for fillies and mares. The daughter of Jack Milton missed as the 6/5 favorite when third vs. similar at Belmont Park last month, but may have been given too much to do after lagging to the head of the lane. Today, with the switch to I. Ortiz, Jr., the C. Brown-trained filly may be able to settle a bit closer and then tag the speed late. Wicked Happy, second in the same race Gabby Squared exits, is a 16-race maiden and certainly not one to trust, but she’s hit the board in each of last four starts and today goes first-off-the-claim for a barn that has had plenty of success with this angle. She should draft into a pace-stalking trip and have every chance from there.

Brian W. Spencer's Daily Picks

Arlington - Race #4
Picks Notes
#2 Purr Sea In a 2yo maiden race without any Rivelli runners, trainer Michele Boyce might have this one locked down. Her pair draw near the inside and appear to have been working forwardly together.
#1 Journeyist Have to respect the local pedigree on the bottom side, and this filly just might get a tougher trip than her stablemate who draws off the fence.
#4 Iggy Bigs She gets Lasix for the first time here while bringing a significant experience edge on most of these. She probably doesn't have a ton of form upside after three mostly modest starts, but maybe the Lasix moves her up enough to play with these.
Race Summary Purr Sea and Journeyist both go first out for trainer Michele Boyce, and I'll be interested to see how this pair gets bet.

Arlington - Race #5
Picks Notes
#2 Future Perfect Debuter goes out of the Hugh Robertson barn, and they're always dangerous with turf sprint types. This guy is bred to love the footing and might be set for a mild upset first out.
#7 Zoffa He brings two-turn form that would make him tough with these, but his only sprint try wasn't much to write home about, and he's probably an underlay here in his ninth career start.
#5 Poquito Man He ran pretty well in his only spin over the local turf course, but he's probably not going offer a fair price in the win pool for a guy who still seems more likely underneath.
Race Summary Future Perfect goes first out in a spot where all of the logical players have question marks, including the two class-dropping ML favorites who bring much better route form than sprint form.

Arlington - Race #6
Picks Notes
#6 She's So Cali Nothing to really get excited about in this race, but this one ran okay in a tough KD maiden last year and has some room to improve in this second start off the layoff.
#1 Ready at Midnight Cutback player has run okay going short, but not much better than that. Guessing he's not about to offer a fair price with another underneath finish more likely. Still, he's in the mix in a bad race.
#7 Heavenly Scent She outran her 34-1 debut odds on the turf before that Polytrack clunker last time out, but she gets back to what is probably her best footing and has some tactical pace to find a good spot.
Race Summary She's So Cali will need to come forward in a big way off the dull return run, but she gets back to the grass and it's encouraging to see them protect her again to try the turf.

Frank Carulli's Daily Picks

Harrah's Philadelphia - Race #1
Picks Notes
#5 MR D'S DRAGON Couldn't keep pace with buzzsaw, 25th win within reach.na OF LINDY Tracked duel, appeared ready to make bid, only to go off stride on turn.
Race Summary Big Bad Swan piled up the checks out of town, took money in his local debut and broke before the start. He's worth a play at an inflated price in a wide open race. Play a 2-3-5 exacta box.

Hoosier Park - Race #2
Picks Notes
#4 ATOMIC BLONDE Chased the faves around the track in follow-up to winning debut.
#2 AMERICAN FASHION Tracked slow pace, got up late to win in career debut.
#1 CRESCENT BEAUTY Unbeatable at fairs, trotted evenly as beaten favorite at Hoosier.
Race Summary Atomic Blonde posted a front-end victory in a well-bet debut, then ran third behind the 2-to-5 winner in a faster follow-up try. She should live up to favoritism in this field. Play a 4-2-ALL trifecta.

Jerry Shottenkirk's Daily Picks

Del Mar - Race #2
Picks Notes
#4 Scotish Star Has only two starts, but they were absolute romps in her native Argentina; Mandella knows how to win with the South America imports and a good run is expected.
#3 First Star Made a mild run in her first one in nine months and can improve off that performance; has gone nearly two years without a win but has only eight starts to her credit. Ellis has given her several works since her latest and has her ready for a big effort.
#5 Road Rager Was a distance third last out but it was in the G2 Great Lady M at Los Al; fits well at this level and will be in the mix.
Race Summary Scotish Star was all alone at the wire in her two starts in Argentina and has worked well for her first for Mandella; lands in a good spot for her initial U.S. run.

Del Mar - Race #4
Picks Notes
#1 Blameless Was second in three of his last six, with a win, at Gulfstream, and makes his third off the claim for Maker, whose barn has won two of five thus far at Del Mar.
#6 First Premio Ran fourth at Churchill last out and was claimed by Mullins and has run well on turf in his career. Solid veteran campaigner.
#5 Red Storm Risen Was second at Belmont in his last start and makes his first start for D'Amato; has plenty of punch going long and figures well here.
Race Summary Blameless has been in good races, has been in the hunt in most of those, and should make an impact in his first California start.

Del Mar - Race #7
Picks Notes
#1 Lucky Peridot Was an easy winner from just off the pace last out, and that's her most effective running style; can carve out a good trip here.
#3 Lady Mystify Hard not to notice her 18-length maiden win last out, which came in her third start and first try around two turns; the company gets better but she could be up to the task.
#4 Did I Stutter Won five in a row until a fifth-place finish last out; her success came at Aqueduct and Parx and she makes her first for Mullins.
Race Summary Lucky Peridot has an adjustable running style and can benefit from the chasing some fast fillies in this one; in a perfect spot for the mile.
