AUTOCUE: Threw the jock in the warm-up and got loose, he looked like a cinch to get scratched but the outride caught up with him and they brought him back and jockey Talamo got back on board. They broke last and stayed there until the top of the stretch and made a big four wide run and got up for the win.

GIRLWITHTHEGOLDENHOOF: Had big early speed while dueling down on the inside when the saddle slipped, she continued to fight it out with a very good ride by jockey Quinonez, she could not hold off the big drop down and the even money favorite but was second best while more than five lengths clear of the rest. She will be a great single next time out.

MALIBU PIER: First time starter out of the Carla Gaines barn was going 6 furlongs on the grass, she was between horses early and then was forced to go to the inside but got stuck with no place to go, she found a little opening and came through but had to be steadied hard and looked beat, but she got out and just stormed home to get the win. Gaines loves to win races at Del Mar and you can bet she will win a good one with this filly. $$$$$

SEVEN POINT ONE: Lost his chance when squeezed at the start but made a nice late run in a race that was better than looked. He was coming off a long layoff but this was a good prep and he will be ready to roll next time out.

GALLATINS RUN: Was last seen running 4th at Del Mar last July, he took a lot of action in this 6 furlong maiden turf sprint but just could not run down the lone speed, you will see him in the Del Mar winning circle next time out. $$$$$

MILES RULES/TEDDY’S PROMISE: These two first time starters were released here on our website in my daily horse selection column, they ran first and second with the $2 exacta paying $93.20, if you are going to play Del Mar and don’t have get it now.

GENTLE ROMEO: Looked home free with a two length lead coming down the lane but got run down late, he was claimed out of this race by Jeff Mullins who has been really beefing up his stable, this one may not stop next time out.

QUIETLY WAITING: Hopped at the start and was far back, he came out on the turn and put in a big time late run and was catching the front runner with every big stride but just did miss by a half length but just flew by him at the wire.

SMASH: 2yo Bob Baffert first time starter was a smash at .50 cents on the dollar winning as he pleased, you may want to make an early Kentucky Derby future wager on this guy at Wynn race book as this one is heading to the table for a piece of steak.

DOUGHBOY: Had the misfortune of running into Smash but ran a great second more than four lengths clear of the rest and looks like another good single next time out. $$$$$

DYNAMIC HOST: Was putting in a big run but had to wait for room on the second turn and into the stretch, once clear he stormed home to pick up the pace money some five lengths clear of rest of the field.

MEDITERRANO: Marty Jones first time starter showed good early speed when between horses, he then was taken back on the turn and re-rallied just missing the place money in what was a super effort. $$$$$

EX LOVER: First time starter going a flat mile on the grass came from last to first to win going away, this one looks to have a future on the green.
