Track: Golden Hour

Date: 10/18/2020

Race 1 (SA Race 9)

1 – Farmington Road

7-29-20202 1-3/16 T

Trip Note: WOW! This was either an incredibly lucky ride or a confident one. It was probably both. Reserved at the rear for most of the race. On hold right in behind the leaders with no where to go from the 3/8th pole until inside the 16th pole. Jock angled out to the 3-path and was given a push button response to get up in time! Impressive!

Race Note: Slow early race flow.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Push Button (+)

 

2 – Express Train

N/A: Never raced on turf

 

3 – Margot’s Boy

9-6-2020 1-1/8 T

Trip Note: Did everything but win this race. Applied moderate pace pressure to #5 Dominant Soul throughout. Pounced on that one inside the 1/8th pole to take the lead and was nailed on the wire.

Race Note: East coast invader rallied from 3rd to get up in the last jump.

Bias: N/A

 

4 – Kiss Today Goodbye

9-6-2020 1-1/8 T

Trip Note: Uncovered 3-4-5deep throughout. Put in a good rally despite being wide and having no pace to run into. Not disgraced in this effort at all.

Race Note: East coast invader rallied from 3rd to get up in the last jump.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Wide (+)

 

5 – Dominant Soul

9-6-2020 1-1/8 T

Trip Note: PPs tell the story. Raced comfortably upfront. Gave the field the momentary slip past the ¼ pole. Got tired the final 16th

Race Note: East coast invader rallied from 3rd to get up in the last jump.

Bias: N/A

 

6 – Smooth Like Strait

9-5-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: Draw a line thru this race. Had zero chance to win with this trip. Caught 3W and locked in a 3-horse eyeball duel. Won the battle but lost the war as he tired the final 1/8th. Expect an improved performance sitting just off the speed today!

Race Note: Top 2 finishes rallied from the rear.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Excused, Expect Improved Effort (+)

 

7 – Scarto

8-31-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: No doubt he is the up and coming player in the division. This was a razor sharp performance! Jock had a ton of horse underneath him throughout. Stuck on the rail while headstrong around the FT. Had to still wait for room past the 1/8th pole. Carefully guided around the tired pacesetter and was push button exploding away from the field. Rispoli opts to leave him today, which is the only negative.  

Race Note: Video feed was cut as there was a horse that fell on the FT.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Traffic (+), Push Button (+), More Here (+)

 

8 – K P All Systems Go

9-6-2020 1-1/8 T

Trip Note: Reserved at the rear. Inched his way through the field up the rail around the FT. In very tight and on hold while spying for a seam. Brushed with a rival as they turned for home. Not enough to warrant an excuse though. Did get a seam shortly thereafter, but never quickened enough to truly threaten in here.

Race Note: East coast invader rallied from 3rd to get up in the last jump.

Bias: N/A

 

9 – Field Pass

9-5-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: Received a perfect trip. Stalked the 3-horse duel up front while racing all on his own. Moved up willingly and took over the lead past the 1/8th pole, but was out-finished to the wire. No excuse not to finish the deal with the set-up he received.

Race Note: Top 2 finishes rallied from the rear.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Perfect Trip

 

Race 2 (GG Race 9)

1 – Mischievous Curlin

10-3-2020 5F T

Trip Note: Trailed for 95% of this race. Nibbled at past the ¼ pole and put in a noticeable good rally all on her own up the rail. Galloped out in front of this field! This was nothing more than a prep off the long layoff in order to set her up for her preferred surface today.

Race Note: Winner went W2W

Bias: N/A

Summary: Prep (+), Gallop (+)

 

2 – Woke Up to Aces

N/A: Never raced on AW

 

3 – Midnight Sunrise

9-25-2020 5.5F AW

Trip Note: Sat a clean pocket trip throughout. Advanced up a wide-open rail at the TOS. Punched through to take the lead, but was collared by the winner inside the 16th pole. 

Race Note: 9/1 upset winner rallied down the center of the track. 

Bias: N/A

 

4 – Malibu June

N/A: Never raced on AW

 

5 – Black Drop

9-25-2020 5.5F AW

Trip Note: While she did have her path taken shortly after the start and checked, the jock was already pulling her back in attempt to rate her. She was given no permission to run down the BS. We could tell that frustrated her by her body language. Commenced a rally past the ¼ pole and grinded away in the lane. Gets a rider upgrade today and if she learned what they re-taught her last time, she’s a major player today. 

Race Note: 9/1 upset winner rallied down the center of the track.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Learning Experience (+), Rider Upgrade (+), Horse Comfort (-), 

 

6 – Sadie Bluegrass

9-18-2020 6F AW

Trip Note: PPs tell the story. Made the front quite easily. Challenged by (2) rivals on the FT, but repelled them and kicked gamely for home. Safely held in the lane. 

Race Note: N/A

Bias: N/A

 

7 – Pearl Dragon

9-25-2020 5.5F AW

Trip Note: PPs tell the story. Tired final 1/8th of a mile. Connections remove the blinkers today which makes sense given how quickly he folded on this replay. 

Race Note: 9/1 upset winner rallied down the center of the track.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Trainer Intentions (+)

 

Race 3 (SA Race 10)

1 – Shvere Arbeter

8-15-2020 5.5F 

Trip Note: Raced 5W (6-deep) into the FT. Nibbled at and failed to respond. Tired and wrapped up. Jog jogged her in final 1/8th.

Race Note: Winner was FTS for Miller and stalked 3W and took over the lead inside the 16th pole

Bias: Middle of the track/Forwardly Placed

 

2 – Lady Mo

8-22-2020 5.5F

Trip Note: Bobbled at the start, but failed to do a lick of running after that.

Race Note: TNP’s 2021 KY Oaks winner,  Princess Noor went W2W.

Bias: Speed

 

3 – Tmorrowisalongtime

N/A: FTS

 

4 – Meet At Dudley’s

N/A: FTS

 

5 – Mama Superior

N/A: FTS

 

6 – Private Mission

N/A: FTS

 

7 – Frosteria

N/A: FTS

 

8 – Full of Laughs

N/A: FTS

 

9 – Hyland Haven

N/A: FTS

 

Race 4 (GG Race 10)

1 – Tyler’s Tek

9-17-2020 1-3/8 T

Trip Note: Overall this was a good trip. A bit headstrong through the stretch the first time. Jock was able to tuck him into a tracking covered up position shortly thereafter. Ground saving trip the rest of the way. Had a seam if good enough at the TOS and didn’t punch through! The place finisher did go through that seam and Tyler briefly checked as a result but it cost him nothing in our opinion. 

Race Note: Fast early flow set the race up for the winner to rally from the rear. 

Bias: N/A

 

2 – Arch Anthem

9-5-2020 1M T

Trip Note: This race was run a 1M in distance. We are going to guess he ran about an extra 1/8th of a mile with this wide trip. Jock never tried to save an inch of ground as he was caught uncovered 5-6 deep throughout. While it is hard to estimate how much the ground loss cost him, it’s safe to say he had no chance to win with this trip. 

Race Note: Winner was bet to favoritism from the 5/1 ML and went W2W.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Wide (++), Excused

 

3 – Mr. Magico

8-22-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: Bumped around shortly after the start. Successfully navigated that to track the early pace setter into the 1st turn. Traded punches with that one down the BS. Won the battle but ultimately lost the war in a 3-horse head-bob on the wire. Game run though. 

Race Note: Winner rallied from the rear to win a 3-horse photo finish.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Game

 

4 – Tough It Out

10-4-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: Raced very flat today. Sat at the rear until they approached the FT. Commenced a minor 3-4W rally and flattened out before they straightened out for home.

Race Note: 7/1 upset winner went W2W.

Bias: N/A

 

5 – Most Determined

N/A: No recent turf races

 

6 – Top of the Game

10-1-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: Jock did everything he could to try to get the lead, but the winner wouldn’t let him have it. Caught 3W on the 1st turn. Tracked the winner the entire BS run. Came under pressure and tired before the ¼ pole. We can excuse the performance as he is a need the lead type. Figures to make the front rather easily today and will be the one to run down. 

Race Note: Winner went W2W

Bias: N/A

Summary: Excused

 

7 – Ocean Fury

10-4-2020 1-1/16 T

Trip Note: Caught 3W (4-deep) around the 1st turn. Applied pace pressure down the BS. Challenged for the lead at the TOS and was repelled. Worn down for place money the final 150 yards.

Race Note: 7/1 upset winner went W2W.

Bias: N/A

 

8 – Praise Loudly

9-27-2020 1M T

Trip Note: Squeezed back at the start. Nothing wrong with this trip or ride. Uncovered 2W (3-deep) trip throughout. Advanced 3W around the FT before drifting out a bit wider in the lane. Grinded away, while never a threat to the winner. 

Race Note: 10/1 upset winner went W2W.

Bias: N/A

Summary: Start (-)
