Thursday's 3rd race (6:03pm ET) from Del Mar is a $60,000 Maiden Special Weight event for CA-bred fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course. #10 BATTLEGROUND STATE (6-1) broke from the difficult inside post vs. males in her downhill debut July 3 and that was a nice education run (...Read More
  • travel_vic · Maiden turfers are usually bad bets for so many reasons:1) you have NO idea how many of these will perform on the new surface (kind of like trying to evaluate new hockey players by seeing how they played basketball) 2) the traits that may make one a standout on dirt, does not mean that same one will be even competent on the grass 3) speed, the usual characteristic that differentiates the contenders on dirt, can give you a false sense of dominance in this new (to them) situation and 4) their breeding MIGHT say turf, but that is a very flimsy guarantee that aptitude will take place. In this field on this LIMITED information, these 4 stand out as contenders: 12 Speakers 6 Easy Song 9 Zillinda 5 Jabber Now 7, here, could take the lead for a bit, but has shown nothing late but could hang on for a board placing.11 Halo Ahead gets and honorable mention for a possible UNDER candidate. This is ALL before scratches so, if a dominant pace horse is declared, this projected pace scenario will be altered. · 9 hours ago
While just over 3 months away the Breeders Cup Distaff brings up this question. If Abel Tasman keeps winning, Unique Bella is back and ready to run, and Songbird is in top form, who does Mike Smith choose to ride. In my opinion last week was an indication that he will stay with Songbird. He could have ridden West Coast for Baffert in the Los Alamitos Derby but went to Delaware Park instead. As Hollendorfer trains both Songbird and Unique Bella I would think Smith would have his choice between them. One thing is certain. Whatever his decision, many jockey agents will be scrambling for the high class leftovers.
