Solana Beach Stakes Recap (8-9-19) - Winner: Lynne’s Legacy ($10.00)

What is going on with the Friday night disqualifications? Last Friday, we had a pair of takedowns, and this week we had two more. In this flat mile turf affair for CA-bred fillies and mares, Mo See Cal and A Walk in the Park set legit fractions, and they set the table for late runners Lynne’s Legacy and post time favorite Pulpit Rider. The former got the right outside rallying trip and rumbled home to win by a neck. Pulpit Rider was stuck inside, angled out in the stretch, surged, and just missed. She was clearly best but the uncomfortable journey tripped her up. Rubbing salt in the wound, she was disqualified from 2nd and place 6th for interfering with Fiery Lady. This was a very questionable call. Fiery Lady was going nowhere and ended up missing 5th by a nose. The stewards said the interference probably cost her 5th place, so they made the change. The revised order of finish was Lynne’s Legacy (1st), Don’t Sell (2nd), Mo See Cal (3rd), A Walk in the Park (4th), Fiery Lady (5th), Pulpit Rider (6th), and Coco Kisses (7th). The only runner I want out of this race is Pulpit Rider.

Best Pal Stakes (G2) Recap (8-9-19) - Winner: Collusion Illusion ($17.40)

Morning line favorite Schrodinger scratched, and this race was thrown wide open. Fore Left ended up taking all of the money, and he stalked outside and finished 3rd. This race came down to Collusion Illusion and Wrecking Crew, and the former got the right trip and won by a length and a quarter. Wrecking Crew ran well from the rail. He broke slow and lost the race right there. He came running late and ended up a fine 2nd. Thanks Mr. Eidson dueled and finished 4th, and We’re Still Here and Raging Whiskey trailed.

Rancho Bernardo Handicap (G3) Recap (8-11-19) - Winner: Danuska’s My Girl ($14.20)

Anonymity was overbet in this spot. She was a solid contender but has been settling for runner-up honors too many times, and she just was not worth 60 cents on the dollar. Danuska’s My Girl was one of the more likely upsetters, and she was able to get out there and control the pace. Best of Me kept the front runner busy, and Anonymity was right behind those two. Danuska’s My Girl was able to get a bit of separation in the lane and was home free by a half-length. Anonymity bobbled at the start, tracked the pace, and could not catch the winner while clearly second best. I went with Lady Ninja as my value top choice, and she lost this race before it began. She figured to stalk the pace but made a mess of the break and spotted the early runners a few lengths. She ended up 3rd, and who knows what might have been with a better beginning. Best of Me was 4th, followed by Zusha, Yuvetsi, Kram, Exuberance, and Show It N Moe It.

 

August 11 Claims: Race 2 - Boyson ($32k, Steve Miyadi). Race 6 - Give Me the Lute ($80k, Andy Mathis).
