Muth: May Be One to Beat In Best Pal Stakes At Del Mar

Two year old colt for Bob Baffert made his debut on Sunday in a maiden special weight event at 5/8 on the main track. Off at 1 to 5 in a field of six, he broke like a cannon shot from the six hole and had six on the field by the 3/8 pole. That lead was up to 8 turning for home and he won easily geared down and wrapped up by 7 at the wire. He cost a cool $2 million Ocala two year old sale in March and this son of the good win early sire Good Magic is a runner. He may be the one to beat in the Best Pal stakes at Del Mar on August 13.

Generally horses that are on the Horses To Watch list ran into unexpected trouble, bad luck, and/or didn’t run the race we believe Muth was cabable of.  We expected that if Muth gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Muth performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Muth last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Muth next start.  If Muth appears to have earned higher performance figures in the last race when running into trouble  as compared to the rest of the field’s expected perfomance in the upcoming race than there is a good chance that Muth will dominate the race.
