Race 1 No. 7 TOPPER’S GHOST: When at Del Mar or at the books playing the ponies you must watch the betting in these maiden races. The betting tipped us on this first time starter as he was listed at 20-1 on the morning line but got hammered down to 2-1 and won like a 2-1 shot. Trainer John Sadler knew and he put up the 50k for the claim.
Race 6 No. 1 CHRISTOPHER STREET: Broke slow and was far back. Once he got into stride turning for home he came from last to sixth in one huge move. Was mowing them all down but his race was over in this his second start off the layoff. He will be very hard to beat next time out and the price will be right.
Race 7 No. 2 SUNDAY RULES: This first time starter for Mike Mitchell ruled a day early. She ran lights out going wire-to-wire by more than four lengths. Mitchell looks to have a real runner with this filly.
