Barish’s Free Pick for Del Mar

Del Mar

Race 6

The Grade 3 Red Carpet Handicap to be run on turf. Top choice is No. 1 California Kook. Agree with my colleague Uncle Richie Saber, that things line up for the Peter Miller trainee today. A jockey upgrade to the nation’s best, a great workout, and much-needed class relief. No. 4 Orglandes has the look of the typical Chad brown Euro filly. Things usually work out well with this program. No. 8 Blame Debbie is riding a three-race winning streak for great turf trainer Graham Motion.
