Yellow Brick: Strong Performance For Potential Stakes Horse For Strong Barn | Upcoming Race:Del Mar July 20, 2024

Four year old colt for Richard Mandella tried the first allowance condition on Saturday at a mile and a sixteenth on the main for older runners. Bet down to the 6/5 choice in a field of 9, he sat in fifth down the back side under Kimura and had a pretty good trip throughout. He was loaded entering the stretch and when the jock got him to the outside, he took dead aim at the leaders and looked like he was going to get the job done. But a Baffert runner ahead of him got 1st run and he was loaded as well, and though “Brick” put in a good run out in the middle of the track, he couldn’t catch him. He was beaten two at the wire and it was another six back to the third horse. It was a strong performance and this son the great Quality Road should have no trouble knocking out this condition and even looks like a stakes horse for this Hall of Fame barn. His next race will be his 3rd off a layoff of 7 months and he is set for a huge effort.

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 Yellow Brick was cabable of.  We expected that if Yellow Brick gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Yellow Brick performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Yellow Brick last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Yellow Brick next start.  If Yellow Brick 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 Yellow Brick will dominate the race.
