Race 1

Encroachment (6)

Elevado (Outside) and Encroachment Worked 4 Furlongs at Del Mar on August 28th, 2021

Tried to get this guy in going 5 on the sod twice now but at least we got him in a maiden race at all.  Recent in company drill was impressive from a time stand point and visually looked good.  Best break we have seen from him and he clipped right along.  Firster versus a lot of horses with experience but at least several are off the bench.  There’s talent there.  Question is distance.

Race 3

Holden the Lute (6)

Holden the Lute Worked 5 Furlongs in 59.00 at Del Mar on August 27th, 2021

Couldn’t have looked much better than this snappy gate drill where he was fire right from the stalls.  Not asked along til towards the end and still finished with enthusiasm.  Mayhaps Knapp wants him a little sharper from the gate which would really change up the dynamic.


Apprehend (1)

Zuboshi (Outside) and Apprehend Worked 5 Furlongs at Del Mar on August 27th, 2021

Zuboshi was a nice maiden winner last out who is stakes bound but this little guy makes her look not as nice as she is.  In front early, he is held up but lays it down turning or home increasing his lead by every stride.  Liked the gallop out as well.  The negatives are there though.  If he was all out, it’s not good enough.  He draws the rail.  Sire Arrogate was a late bloomer and he hasn’t sired a winner yet.

Breakfast Ride (4)

Electric Ride (Outside) and Breakfast Ride Worked 5 Furlongs in 59.80 at Del Mar on August 22nd, 2021

Another logical is this firster who was professional in this recent gatge drill.  The workmate appears better but he doesn’t have to tangle with him here.  No works for Quality Wins but I see you there Mark Glatt!!!
