Ok! Is this the week? I hope so.
DMR 1: Ginger Tap - Gets Talamo and more room to run. Hopefully, the rest of these are as weak down the stretch as they look because she's probably going to be 15 lengths back at the far turn.
DMR 2: Cal Gal - Beaten soundly last out by Moving Desert, who came back to run pretty well in a stakes race...that's probably the best angle I have in this race. Everyone else seems suspect.
DMR 3: Chestnut Moon - You should see my notes on this race! I have gone back and forth and back on a handful of them in here. I think this is a crapshoot. Since I'm a betting man, I'll take a little flier here (I think...) on Chestnut Moon, who's dropping down to a realistic level and showed something last out. I can't ignore Hard Buns, who actually looked pretty good last out, but beat up a soft bunch.
DMR 4: Can the Man - Let's talk crapshoots! 8 entrants, 7 first timers...trust in Baffert!
DMR 5: Kid Edward - Maybe I should just get to the track late and skip R3 and R4...this one should be a good race! Lots of heavy hitters here! I can make a case for a half dozen of these, but I'll go with the back class with Kid Edward, who ran decently against some nice ones! I loved Sidney's Candy, so maybe I'm biased...will defintely keep an eye on Bio Pro, who could be a big price here, but is super hot right now...
DMR 6: Hi Fashioned - Looks to be a lock here (he says while knocking on wood).
DMR 7: Germany Bay - Wow, what to do with Know More??? Is he finally at a level where he can win? Or is he still in free-fall down the ranks? I'm not inclined to catch that falling knife, so I'll go with Germany Bay who ran a great race last out and will be rolling here.
DMR 8: Emotional Kitten - Kittens everywhere this weekend! I have to like her here as she was super game against Summer of Fun two back and just missed last out. The only question I have is whether Discreet Marq will fold or not. She didn't the last two times, so she just might keep going here.
DMR 9: Heaven and Earth - Have to go with Hollendorfer here. No reason other than that.
DMR 10: Star Vesta - Pick of the day! Shortest price of the day, too! We'll see if her last out was an aberration or not...
SAR 9: Big Blue Kitten - Another Kitten! Great race last out. Boisterous will be tough, but will probably be a very short price.
SAR 10: Fiftyshadesofhay - Purely a play against Princess of Sylmar, who's going to be 1/5...
AP 1: Positively - I don't even know why I'm looking at Arlington races...I always get my butt kicked when I try to play the track...but here we go anyway...like I said...since I'm a betting man...
AP 6: My Option - No Kittens here! My Option looked fabulous last out, and I think she'll continue here.
AP 7: Dandino - Have to like the Euro here. On a side note, he just got beat by a horse named Thomas Chippendale!! What a great name!!! So proper, yet sounds like a porn star...
AP 8: Admiral Kitten - Will mow them down here. Do the Ramseys' just have a conveyor belt pumping out these Kittens????
AP 9: Marketing Mix - Cannot bet against her. Just can't.
AP 10: Grandeur - Hate the post, but he looked fabulous (dare I say Grand?) when last over here. Will definitely play Indy Point somewhere in the exotics though. He looked really good winning here at DMR.
Good luck all!
