DEL MAR

ANN ARBOR EDDIE, RITZY A.P: We had both of these runners in our “Get Rich With Saber” column in last week’s edition of GamingToday. As we stated, both were exiting the same race. We got the price on top in the exacta with EDDIE winning and paying $20 and RITZY finishing a half-length behind. The exacta paid $69.70 for $2. Keep an eye out for runners exiting the same race, especially at this meet. We hope to see both of these back before meet’s end.

DEL MAR MAY: Aptly named, 2yo first-time starter for this meet had the misfortune of facing the well regarded and hyped up first timer BRILL for Jerry Hollendorfer, who won this race at odds on by 1-1/4 with MAY finishing a very game second at 27/1, almost six lengths clear of the rest in this very tough 2yo filly maiden race. We won’t get 27/1 next time out but we will see her in the winner’s circle in the very near future. $$$$$

DESERT STONE: Looked to have a big shot in the Oceanside on opening day at Del Mar but he bobbled at the start to be far back. He made a huge late run to finish a much better-than-looked fourth, missing the show dough by a half-length. With a better trip should get there next time out.

KAZAN, SELLWOOD, ZIPMAN: Another incredible finish on opening day as these three runners again were exiting the same race. Again the longest shot of the three got the cash with KAZAN winning and paying $30.20. The trifecta paid $141.75 for 50 cents. These are “must plays” not only at Del Mar but also at Saratoga.

FELLOW CITIZEN: First timer was a hot runner in the last week of the Los Al TB meet as he was sent off at even money. He was a handful before the start and it could have taken some run out of him. Did look all the winner down the lane but got caught late. We will give him another shot next out at Del Mar.

ONCE ON WHISKEY: This is another angle to look for at Del Mar. Bob Baffert had two runners in the Los Alamitos Derby – ONCE ON WHISKEY and Ax Man, the latter sent off at 70 cents on the dollar. WHISKEY was let go at 7/1 and he got the money. It is wise to take the longer shot when a trainer sends out two in the same race.
