Beckson: Beat a good group of $15,000 claimers in seasonal debut. Fresh horse can handle a modest
claiming price increase and win 2-3 more.
Bellamonte: After being off since April, he closed well in a race he obviously needed. May prefer more
distance than 6-F.
Distinctly Perfect: Favorite was repeatedly bumped by a horse who was DQ’d. The bumps cost him
his best chance to win.
Jazzin with Jazzy: Broke 5 lengths slow in a swiftly-run short sprint. Will use his conditions in his
Maid in Monroe: 3-year-old filly is now running to her route breeding. She is ready to handle n/w-3’s.
Ruby Slew: Ran insane fractions of 21 2/5, 44 4/5 & 56 4/5ths before tiring. Needs a rider who can
control her speed.
Sixbitfurcliff: At 16-1 odds, came close to beating a 3-5 horse at 6 1/2 furlongs. Horse is bred to
route; be ready when that day comes.
T’s So Shy: Most impressive juvenile I’ve seen so far this year. Broke his maiden by 5 easy lengths
and his time was 3/5ths of a second off the track record.
Venture Forever: Probably best in last when he received a very poor ride from a replacement jockey.
Way Ahead of You: 2-year-old broke 5 lengths slow as the 4-5 odds favorite. Ran very well late and
was positively claimed.
4STARSPECIAL: Dim Sum Gal: Debuting 2-year-old broke slow from PP-1, launched a terrific rail run
on the turn and would have won had she not been impeded by a tiring horse a furlong out.
LONGSHOT: Kid Stogie: Poor break cost this debuting 2-year-old a victory. Give him another
opportunity. Odds should be generous.
NO. CAL FAIRS
BAILEY’S YODELER: Has done little wrong in four career starts (three wins, one second). Breaks on top and
never looks back.
BEAUTIFUL LOVE: Two useful starts since returning from the vacation. Lightly raced five-year-old is ready to leave
the maiden ranks.
BILO: Didn’t step foot on the racetrack until he was four, but has been worth the wait. Bertrando gelding
gives his all.
BRAZEN N’ BOLD: Looked razor sharp in :35 1/5 bullet workout at Bay Meadows June 22. Clockers say go.
BRING HOME THE GOLD: Faced stakes company for quite some time before being dropped in class in May. Takes
one on memory.
DIFFERENT CLASS: Was up against better in most recent effort. Fast enough to wire $40,000 taggers; can also
rate if necessary.
DUDDLY DOO RUN: Turf Paradise invader hooked a tough field of $40,000 claimers off the brief freshening. Stands
a better chance at the $20k level.
SHAKA SWIFT: Showed improvement while second in his turf debut at 25-1, but was disqualified and placed eighth
for interference. Very playable in a similar spot.
SONG OF THE BULL: Chestnut gelding has only delivered one bad performance out of four starts on the grass. Might
get overlooked versus a starter allowance field.
SUMMER GUY: Returned from a two-year absence with a maiden win over the Bay Meadows turf June 20. Must tip
our cap to trainer Terry Knight for a remarkable training job.
TON A RUN: Made an instant impact in Northern California wiring a group of maiden claimers in her local debut. May
string together a couple for Doug O’Neill.
WE GOT MONEY: Made it three straight solid turf outings with a third-place showing June 20. Is ready to bust out
with a victory.
WIND WATER: Put forth some effort at 49-1 to finish third while making his career debut in the Malcom
Anderson S. Looking good off that effort.
4STARSPECIAL: REAL SPECIAL: Claimed back by John Martin out of recent fifth-place finish. Returns to winning ways
on a slight drop down.
LONGSHOT: DEPUTY DOO DAH: Expected a better effort from her shipping in from Hollywood, but might’ve needed
another one making her second start off the one-year layoff.
