DEL MAR YOU’RE A GOAT

Trainer: Dan Blacker Last race: Oct. 26, 1st (Santa Anita) Fin­ish: 3rd by 2 1/4 Beyer: 72

This claim­ing-cal­iber turf filly is past due for a jockey change. Blocked in deep stretch, stead­ied, buried, fin­ished with run. She’s no champ but had no shot with this trip.

MID­NIGHT BISOU

Trainer: Bill Spawr Last race: Oct. 27, 6th (Santa Anita) Fin­ish: 2nd by nose Beyer: 76 A 2-year-old first-time starter, she weaved through traf­fic and nearly col­lared the per­fect-trip win­ner while fin­ish­ing seven clear of third. Mid­night Lute filly has bright fu­ture.

TOP OF THE GAME

Trainer: Vladimir Cerin Last race: Oct. 28, 5th (Santa Anita) Fin­ish: 1st by 4 1/4 Beyer: 104

This al­lowance-cal­iber geld­ing blew away his ri­vals in a mi­nor stakes race, his first start in eight months. Lightly raced (12 starts), he is a top prospect in the win­ter hand­i­cap di­vi­sion.

CHAN­NEL MAKER

Trainer: Bill Mott Last race: Oct. 28, 9th (Santa Anita) Fin­ish: 4th by 3 3/4 Beyer: 92 Tough to win a Grade 2 turf route with a four-wide trip, which is what this geld­ing faced in the Twi­light Derby for 3-year-olds. This was a bet­ter-than-it-looked ef­fort.

MEADOWSWEET

Trainer: Cliff Sise Last race: Oct. 29, 9th (Santa Anita) Fin­ish: 7th by 5 1/4 Beyer: 84 This Smart Strike filly out of a Grade 1 win­ner was stuck in­side, blocked in the lane, and stead­ied. She would not have de­feated im­pres­sive win­ner Lull but would have fin­ished closer.

IN­CENSED

Trainer: Peter Miller Last race: Nov. 1, 1st (Del Mar) Fin­ish: 2nd by 1/2 Beyer: 88 A turf sprinter, he was tons best in this first-level al­lowance. Blocked into the lane, nowhere to go, switched out­side, fin­ished with a rush. One to beat next time in a sim­i­lar N1X.

MONY DONT SPEN IT SELF

Trainer: Mark Glatt Last race: Nov. 1, 7th (Del Mar) Fin­ish: 5th by 4 1/2 Beyer: 83 First start in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, first on turf, this geld­ing had a tough trip into and through the lane. He gal­loped out su­per past the wire and fits in an­other turf route for 3-year-olds.
