DEL MAR

Race 1

We get started with yet another five horse field and it’s 2yo in a starter allowance race, the best look to be No. 1 Lime Rock Revenge and his stablemate No. 4 Success Again. 1-4

Race 2

In the second race of the day we get to chose from six before scratches and No. 3 Indian Ashton looks like the play off the layoff for trainer Wesley Ward. 3

Race 3

No. 1 Lost Prophet exits our HTW list and just may be the speed of the race, if she can clear early from her rail post she will be long gone. No. 4 Kaysa Deeya drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and looks like the main threat to the Lost Prophet. 1-4

Key Play

$10 Q 1-4 for $10

$10 win and place 1 for $20

Race 4

No. 1 Within Reason lands in a new barn and looks set for the win, No. 6 Full On gets Pat V riding for O’Neill. 1-6

Key Play

$5 double

3rd 1-4

4th 1-6 for $20

Race 5

No. 2 Melon Up has big early speed and Del Mar could be the answer for her to go all the way, No. 5 Warrens Moon will be making her usual late run. No. 8 was last seen running last here in ’09, she could be a much better filly as a 3yo. 2-5-8

Key Play

$2 exacta box 2-5-8 for $12

Race 6

No. 1 Super Harmony has the rail speed and Pat V riding, he will try and take her wire-to-wire. No. 3 Autocue exits our HTW list and this very tough 5yo gelding won his only start here at Del Mar and he has never been worse than second in five starts at the distance. No. 4 Roar OF Applause drops for trainer Mike Mitchell, and this is one of his best moves and a top jock will ride. 1-3-4

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-3-4 for $12

$6 Q 3 with 1-4 for $12

$2 double

5th 2-5-8

6th 1-3-4 for $18

Race 7

No. 1 Softly Singing won both of her starts here as a 2yo, No. 2 Fund Raiser has never been off the board in nine lifetime starts, No. 5 Via Veneto has a win here at Del Mar and is the stablemate of Fund Raiser. 1-2-5

Key Play

$2 exacta box 1-2-5 for $12

$2 double

6th 1-3-4

7th 1-2-5 for $18

Race 8

In this 40k maiden claimer for 2yo fillies going 5½ furlongs we will use three that are exiting the same race, the speedster No. 2 Leslie Rules, No. 5 Table For One and No. 10 Desperate Measures. 2-5-10
