ALERTS AT DEL MAR
RACE 1 NO 5 MAYAKOBA MESA: Was last seen running against some good ones last year in her 2yo season. She came back running, but had the misfortune of meeting up with the ultra tough Baffert first time starter Glamorista. This filly was a clear second and will be a good single in the picks next time out. Her trainer Bill Spawr usually has a good Del Mar meet.
RACE 3 NO 6 STARDUST DANCER: First time starter for trainer Doug O’Neill ran a winning race in this 30k maiden claimer but just had no shot at running down the lone speed in here. Ran a clear second, crushing the rest by almost five lengths. Won’t be a maiden for long.
RACE 4 NO 2 DYNAMO: This royally bred turf filly was making her second start on the grass. Broke slow and stumbled right out of the gate. Was far back in another galaxy and looked hopelessly beaten, but made an eye catching move from last at the top of the stretch in this eleven horse field. It was scary to say the least, but she somehow got up at the wire in what was a spectacular performance. $$$$$
and NO.8 EX LOVER: Trainer Jeff Mullins looked to have this filly ready to roll off the layoff, going a mile on the grass. She ran a bang up race finishing a close third. Will be hard to beat next time out going this distance on the grass.
