Del Mar Race 2
Twilight Friday card at that “happy place” for many people. Top choice is No. 3 Tiger Dad. He ran second here in similar conditions 3 weeks ago. And trainer Carla Gaines is traditionally solid with turf runners. No. 8 J.T.’s A.T.M. hasn’t been seen since January. The workout reports are quite complimentary. And he’s run well up north in turf sprints. I also like that the trainer is an owner of this horse. No. 4 Tristram Speaker has run twice. The first time was on poly track at Golden Gate. Synthetic surfaces are similar to grass and that performance was a blowout!
My Pick: Win 3 Exacta Box 3-4-8
