Horses to Watch Alert
at Del Mar
Race 5 No. 8 VIA VERDE: Is a very hard hitting turf sprinter who has been unlucky in his last two starts. Was a very troubled closing fourth in first start and a troubled second behind the tough Get Funky in the other. He now goes to trainer John Sadler who claimed him for 25k. Sadler will get a quick return on his investment. $$$
Race 6 No. 11 LA SOMBRE: Was last seen running second at Del Mar last Aug. 10. She came back running in this 6 furlong straight maiden race, but came up a half length short despite running a winning race. Expect her to break maiden next time out, maybe Aug. 10.
