Del Mar Race 2

It’s with a heavy heart that we welcome back Richie Saber from vacation. He was wrapping up a terrific two-week stint in San Diego and was joined by pal, and former GT columnist Bob Mann. They had a wonderful weekend, cashed some tickets, and had the usual laughs. He texted me to brag about how a tip, and eventual win for a horse paid for his entire weekend. I bragged back about my $21 winner and $140 exacta. Bob returned to Las Vegas on Sunday in great spirits and on Monday he was gone. He left the world on a high note. Rest peacefully Robert Mann!

When Bob was passionate about any topic, he’d certainly put up a fight, so in that vain our top choice is No. 3 Fracas. She had a really nice workout here on August 11. Also had a much-improved sheet figure in her last race when moving from Polytrack (Golden Gate) to the Los Al dirt. No. 4 Atina wheels back after 19 days for a new barn. Trainer Andy Mathis is having a solid meet. No. 5 Cimarron fits in with this group and trainer Bob Hess is always eager to get pictures taken near the beach.
