DEL MAR

ESPOSITO/MIGHTY MOSES: There were three maiden 2yos exiting the same race, these two and Let’s Meet in Rio. Esposito won the race going away for trainer Tom Proctor who looks to have a solid runner here with a ton of up upside. Mighty Moses finished second at 7/1 more than four lengths clear of the rest of the field. Let’s Meet in Rio stumbled badly at the start and really could never get into the race after that.

WHAT A VIEW: Took the early lead, fought off a bid on the second turn and sped away again opening up a two length lead. Kent D thought he was home free and never saw the horse flying on the inside. Once he did it was too late and he lost the bob on the line. If you were sitting on a What a View single ticket you were an upset bettor.

LUCY DE: Was coming off the layoff for trainer Mike Puype and took plenty of action going off as the 2/1 favorite. She was steadied hard when crowded at the gap. Tyler Baze angled her but she was in tight, had to check between horses and that was that. We will give this filly a big shot at redemption next time out. $$$

NINETY ONE ASSAULT: First time starter for team Desormeaux ran too huge to lose. He came four wide into the stretch in this mile turf race and was flying late to just miss by a nostril to the odds-on winner. We think Keith Desormeaux has a top notch turf runner here. $$$$$

POWER JAM: Just another tough beat for those who like to single a runner that is odds-on and looks much the best. This Baffert runner was sent off at 60-cents-on-the-dollar. As luck would have it he just happen to bobble at the start and was away very awkwardly. He made a monster late surge just missing the bob and was most likely best on any other day. $$$$$
