DEL MAR

DERBY GLASS: Was one of four necks on the line in this mile dirt race over a fast oval, he was very unlucky to lose this race and will be hard to beat next out at a mile or longer.

UNCLE LINO: First time Uncle Mo 2yo colt ran lights out as he battled tooth and nail the entire trip only to get nailed late by a runner out of the hot Jeff Mullins barn. Uncle Lino lost by a neck but was more than five lengths clear of the odds on Baffert runner.

GABRIEL CHARLES: Talking about Jeff Mullins well he sent this 5yo out and he ran an eye-popping race in the Eddie Read, winning going away by almost four lengths and looking like he could go around again. Breeders’ Cup, here comes Gabriel!

CHIROPRACTOR: Was in from Delaware Park via Pimlico for trainer Tom Proctor who looked to have this first time gelding spotted for the win at a price going 1-1/16 on the grass, but the rare rains came pouring down and he was scratched when the race was moved to the main track. We will be looking for him next time out going long on the grass.

DREAMY ART: First time starter for trainer Adam Kitchingman, who usually does well here with his 2yo runners. Ran a very good second behind the even money highly regarded Pretty N Cool, who went wire to wire on this wet sloppy sealed track. Dreamy Art can flat out run and won’t be a maiden for long.

TURNOVER: Was steadied when in tight and between horses, then had to make a five wide run. By that time this race was over on this sloppy track. We will give this one a big shot next out.

SECOND SUMMER: Was our best bet at GamingToday.com but the race was taken off the grass. His trainer still let him run, and despite it all he was sent off as the 9/5 favorite. But he had no shot on this course and finished a distant fourth. We would love to see this one come back going long on the grass; if so we will be playing.
