LOS ALAMITOS/DEL MAR

(opens Thursday, July 17)

BAD READ SANCHEZ

Trainer Doug O’Neill sent out this 2yo first time starter for his top owner Reddam. This 2yo colt just crushed them by 10 lengths while under a long hold. He will be running in stakes at Del Mar and we have put him on our Kentucky Derby watch list. Will be on a future bet. $$$$$

ARGYLE CUT

In from the Gate where he was running great on the grass. Broke slow in this mile turf race and  had to be steadied off heels in midstretch, which cost him the race as he surged home late to miss by 3/4 of a length. He fits with these on the grass.

PRESIDING JUSTICE

Swung out in the stretch for room but got in tight and had to take up off heels of a horse in front of him. He then split horses in midstretch, had to angle in and surged late while down on the inside. Just did get beat by a neck as the best in the race.

COUNTY LINEMAN

Will return to our HTW list after another solid effort despite trouble in a race that he looked best losing by a dwindling half length. This one puts out every time and will pop on the Del Mar grass. $$$

YES YES YEA

That is what we will be saying the next time this one runs. He was getting his first start off the layoff and really ran a good one going down the hill. He will love the six furlong Del Mar turf course. We will be taking a big shot. $$$

SENSO

Just looked great on the track in this $20k maiden claimer for fillies and mares in this her first start. She showed good early speed, battling head to head and nose to nose. Tired late and just missed the place money by a head. If able to clear early next time out she will be gone.

SPIRIT OF TEN

Was last seen running at the recently defunked Hollywood Park last November. She took some action in this spot but could not handle the odds-on winner. Did finish more than six lengths clear of the rest and will be a solid single next time out.
