Wednesday, August 13 results

At Del Mar in Race 1 we ran second and third, in Race 2 our key horse ran out and the others ran first second and third. In race three we looked like a cold winner but the No. 2, Tigley, broke down in deep stretch. Our horses ran out in Race 4. We got split in Race 5. We got nailed at the wire in Race 6 and that cost us the Pick Four and the Pick Three as we ran first and second in the last two races. At the Bay we got nailed on the line in our first leg of the late Pick Four, we had the winners in the last three legs.

Del Mar

Race 1

Both the No. 3, Sleepin In, and No. 5 Holladay Dixie have the speed to go all they way, the value may come from No. 4 Cool Haleigh who may be making a late run. 3-4-5

Key Play

$2 Exacta Box 3-4-5 for $12

$1 Tri 3 with 1-4-5 for $6

Race 2

This one looks like anyone of the three chalks, No. 1 Street Match, No. 2 Dona Amelia who both exit the same race and No. 5, Wickednwackyingrid, a speedster who is stretching out, she will try and take them wire to rope. 1-2-5

Key Play

$2 Exacta Box 1-2-5 for $12

$1 Tri-Box 1-2-5 for$6

Race 3

Five of the seven exit the same race with No. 5 Wild Fleece and No. 7 Shes a Real Keeper finishing the best of the five. No. 6 Powerofvoodoo is a 19 time loser but did finish second three of four times on this 1 1/16 turf course, she comes off a layoff and may be finally ready to get her diploma. Look for her to be motoring late and if there is a fast pace she could pop at a nice price. 5-6-7

Key Play

$2 Exacta Box 5-6-7 for $12

$1 Tri-Box 5-6-7

$2 Q 5 with 2-3-4-6-7 for $10

Race 4

3yo Fillies running for a claiming price of $12,500, so any thing can happen and it usually does. No. 2 Lunar Mystery has won 5 of 11 lifetime starts, No. 8 Concettina is a one-time winner but her trainer Jeff Mullins takes the blinkers off and double drops her in class, she will be coming from out of it today. No. 9 Almacita will get a great trip and exits a key race, she will be the price play in here. 2-8-9

Key Play

$2 Exacta Box 2-8-9 for $12

$10 Win and Place 9 for $20

Race 5

2yo Fillies going 5 furlongs for a 100K claiming tag and the only girl in here that appears worth 100K is No. 9 Truthy a Grand Slam that went for $220F. We will take a stab at this race and just play a dime Super Box and make a little play on Truthy as she is 8-1 in the morning line. 1-4-7-8-9

10 cent Super Box 1-4-7-8-9 for $12

$10 Win and Place 9 for $20

Race 6

No. 1 Top Leese has not been seen since running at Fairplex last year but looks live in this cheap spot. No. 2 Six Again was given a little rest off a hard fought win last time out and did run OK here last year. No. 5 Count Orange is a 7yo tough as nails gelding who has won 12 times from 64, yes 64 lifetime starts and now retains the services of jockey Bejarano, this one must be feeling his oats. No. 7 Winning Tactics lost by a head to Six Again in his last start and will try and turn the tables on that one as jockey Rosario takes over. 1-2-5-8

Key Play

$1 Tri-Box 1-2-5-8 for $24

$2 Q 5 with 1-2-8 for $6

Race 7

No. 5 Queen of the Catsle just did miss by a neck in her last start against No. 8 Whatsitgonnatake, these two could run one two once again. 5-8

Key Play

$1 Tri 5-8 with all with 5-8 for $14

Race 8

No. 7 Tahoe Kid showed high speed in his first start, he had a very good work here on July 25 and may hold on today. No. 12 Cach D Fish exits our HTW list, this 2yo colt had just a horrible trip in is first start on July 30, he worked a bullet here on August 6 and now gets the bug boy Martinez in the irons, all systems are go. 7-12

Bay Meadows

Race 5

We will take a shot with the last four races on the Bay Meadows card as we look for a nice payoff. No. 5 Awesome Jared was over his head in his last start at Del Mar and looks to have found a field he can handle, also he has two win, two seconds and a third from five starts on this layout. No. 6 Super Harmony is moved up in class following a second place finish in his last start at Santa Rosa, top trainer Miyadi must like the way he is doing. No. 7 Two Trials has won three of six here at the Bay on this turf course. 5-6-7

Race 6

Trainer Steve Sherman drops No. 2 Wax Figure from 25k to 8k. No. No. 5 Stow Lake looks on the improve. No. 7 The Legends Prize comes in from Del Mar, his trainer tries to get the purse and unload at the same time. No. 8 Arendt I Kool is 20/1 in he morning line but looks better. No. 9 Getawaii gets a huge rider upgrade. 2-5-7-8-9

Race 7

No. 4 Spanish Heat gets Baze up for Sherman, No. 6 Little Ava looks well spotted off the Maiden breaker, No. 8 Jennys Penny comes back fresh and ready, No. 9 Tango One is the other Sherman in here and is the one to beat. 4-6-8-9

Race 8

No. 7 Annual Statement was scratched on Wednesday for this much easier spot, she looks like a short price winner. No. 4 Smoking Hemet was also scratched on Wednesday for this spot. No. 8 Unusual Times is a first time Unusual Heat and we all know what they can do on the grass. 4-7-8
