Del Mar closes Nov. 26; Los Alamitos TB opens Nov. 31.

KEYSTONE FIELD: First time starter for trainer Richard Mandella was dead last in this full field of 11 runners going six furlongs. He split runners past mid-stretch and got home late, finishing fourth. He has the looks of a colt who really wants to go long. Grass could even be his game.

PAINTING CORNERS: May have been best in this five furlong turf sprint but lacked room when making her run and had to check off heels in mid-stretch. Got going again, just missing on the line when between runners late, surging to just miss the show by a nostril and the win by a long neck. $$$$$

FREDDIES DREAM: $8K runner may have seen better days but he ran an interesting race in this mile affair. We really like the fact his previous owner and trainer, Rockingham Ranch and Peter Miller, claimed him back. They must think there’s a quick return on the move up in class. We will be there at the window for his return. $$$

RED CARPET CAT: This was a tough beat at 14/1 as this guy really wanted to run on this day going a mile on the grass but got in tight early. Was pulling jockey Bejarano out of his saddle, really wanting to be let loose when four wide. Made one bid but could not get by the winner and then came on again late, just missing by a dwindling 3/4 of a length in a great effort. $$$

WAR HEROINE: Somehow this first time Peter Miller starter got off at 8/1 with Prat riding. She sprinted to the front and never looked back to win by a tuned down 6-3/4 lengths while under a long stranglehold late. She had the looks of a filly who could have gone around again and will love going long on the grass. We will be on her to repeat next out singling her in the picks. $$$$$

SHEER FLATTERY: Was best here except for the outside trip as he ran home big time late while under a patented four wide Mike Smith ride. Surged late to just miss by a nostril on the line. No mistakes next out with a better trip.
