2004 Del Mar Horses
Trained by Carla Gaines:
All Flags Flying (bay, 3, f, Flying Continental-Talk Faster, by Zanthe)-Won for Maiden 25,000 in her second start, but she was pretty nervous and agitated coming out of that race and we sent her home to get settled down some and pick up some weight. She is looking better now and in training at the farm and will ship directly into Del Mar and may be live first out.
Brite Sunny Day (bay, 5, f, High Brite-Sunny Sara, by Affirmed)-Has won about $200,000 and is stakes placed. She likes Del Mar and did well there last year. Brite hasn’t started for a while, but has been freshened up and is training well.
Court Seeker (bay, 2, f, Doneraille Court-Really Seeking, by Seeking the Gold)-A well bred 2 year old filly that is co-owned with Harris Farms by Mike Orlando and Gary Parker. May start toward the end of the meet. She worked well at the Barretts June sale.
Deputy Lee (ch, 4, c, French Deputy-Jumberca, by Carson City)-May start in the closing weekend at Hollywood Park for his first out. He is a well-bred colt, good looking colt named after the Harris Farms Homeland Security chief, Lee Nilmeier.
Lucky J.H. (bay, 2, c, Cee’s Tizzy-Lucky C.H., by A P Indy)-A well bred colt that we have high hopes for. My theory is that it is better to be lucky than smart. His works thus far are only ok, but I am thinking he’ll show more as time passes, maybe going 2 turns toward the end of the meet.
New Water (bay, 4, f, Lake George-Nu Liz, by Batonnier)-She likes the Del Mar turf course and we sent her back to freshen up a bit at the farm for this season, and she gained some weight and looks very good right now. Will ship south shortly. Still trying to go through her Cal bred allowance condition.
Rush Country (bay, 3, c, Wild Rush-Isleo Bebe, by Island Whirl)-A very consistent sort so far, but still a maiden although all of his last 3 have been decent efforts. Should be useful at Del Mar, dirt or turf.
Sunny Outcome (bay, 4, f, Cee’s Tizzy-Sunny Sara, by Affirmed)-Showed a lot of promise last year winning in her last late in 2003, then had some problems and we stopped on her for a while, but she is coming back well now. Should run early in the meet, maybe a 6 furlong Cal bred allowance on July 26th
Trained by Marty Jones:
Alphabet Kisses (gr, 3, f, Alphabet Soup-Kiss for Six, by Saratoga Six)-She has won her last 3 in a row at Hollywood Park, but we wanted to build her up a bit and thus backed off some and are now pointing for the Cal bred stakes on opening weekend, the Fleet Treat. This gray filly can run and is versatile.
Scratched Crowded Room (db, 4, f, Smokester-Work the Crowd, by Political Ambition)-She has been a pleasant surprise. She took a while to get to the races, but has won 2 at Hollywood Park and can run short or long, dirt or turf; just like her dam, Work the Crowd, who gave Ken Maddy and me a lot of thrills.
El Don (bay, 3, g, Cee’s Tizzy-Timed Perfectly, by Pretense)-This can be a really nice horse for Don Valpredo and me. He broke his maiden with a super Beyer rating late last year at Hollywood Park, then had to be stopped on with an ankle chip, but has bounced back well and his works look good, including 6 furlongs in 111 4/5 on July 8th. May run on July 24th in a Cal Bred allowance.
Things Happen (bay, 2, g, High Brite-Moscow Symphony, by Moscow Ballet)-The name says it all. He has some ability and should be contentious if we can find the right spots for him.
Uncle Jack (gr, 4, g, Cee’s Tizzy-Love Me Again, by Flying Victor)-This is a partnership horse of Don Valpredo, Terry Boylan, Rob Johnson and me. He showed good ability last year, regressed, then won for 12.5 and was claimed away from Don. Our group claimed him back for 20 and he ran badly that day. Time for a drop, but he can run some.
Watermelon Summer (bay, 2, g, Tinners Way-Watermelon Time, by Cutlass Reality)-He hasn’t started yet, but is working ok. Needs to show a little more to be a serious horse, but may be ok for maiden claiming.
Watermelon Wine (ch, 5, f, Moscow Ballet-Watermelon Time, by Cutlass Reality)-She has been a money maker, and looked like she could go through a Cal Bred allowance condition, but may need to find an easier spot. Pretty versatile, and maybe she’ll like Del Mar and easier company.
Yourway Highway (bay, 3, f, Tinners Way-Teach You, by Dimaggio)-Has taken a while to get to the races, but has a touch of ability. She may run closing weekend at Hollywood Park.
Trained by Howard Zucker:
Lakerette (bay, 4, f, Lake George-Vaderette, by Skywalker)
Has shown promise in her 2 Hollywood Park starts, and should be able to break her maiden at some level at Del Mar. Co-owned by Sheila Williams.
Lakeside Trail (ch, 5, g, Lake George-In True Form, by Imasmartee)-He tries hard every time and is pretty versatile. He won on the dirt last year at Del Mar, and I think he will also like the turf down there.
Oceans Reality (ch, 4, f, Cutlass Reality-Sea Tempest, by Storm Cat)-Has taken much time to get to her first start, but I have always liked her. She has a steady work pattern and should start before too long.
Sky Reality (bay, 4, f, Cutlass Reality-La Ciela, by Conquistador Cielo)-Ran a disappointing race in her last at Hollywood Park, but usually picks up a check and could come to life at Del Mar.
Skyway (bay, 3, g, Tinners Way-Vaderette, by Skywalker)-Co-owned by Sheila Williams and a ½ to multiple stakes winner, Super Tuesday, he worked well as a 2 year old, but was sidelined with an injury and worked well enough at the farm since coming back to warrant giving him a chance in Southern California.
Tin Princess (ch, 3, f, Tinners Way-Raise an Heiress, by Raise A Native)-Nice female family for this unstarted filly that is working ok for Howard.
Trained by Craig Lewis:
Cold Market (gr, 5, g, Cee’s Tizzy-Time to Plant, by Seattle Song)-He is sure not a Hot Market, but may be able to break his maiden at some level.
New Course (bay, 3, g, Corslew-Nu Liz, by Batonnier)-He has won a couple of races from limited starts, and should fit well with lower level 3 year olds going long.
Trimmer Springs (ch, 2, f, Moscow Ballet-Grana, by Miswaki)-May be one of our better 2 year old filly prospects. She just shipped down to Craig a few weeks ago, but if she progresses along ok, should start at Del Mar.
