FARQUHAR: Maiden just ran huge in a much better than looked fourth place finish in this mile turf race. He will love the Del Mar turf course and we will make a good wager on him next out, especially if we see a jockey switch as the bug boy Velez really butchered this last ride on him.
CLEM LABINE: Most likely named after the Brooklyn right hander, this Clem Labine just ran huge in this 6½-furlong optional claimer and should love the Los Alamitos course. We would love to see him show up there going a mile or seven furlongs. If so, we will be singling.
ROYAL INSIDER: Had good positing down on the inside in this mile turf race but got in tight and had to steady off heels leaving the second turn. He was then switched out and was coming back on down the lane in a sneaky effort to say the least. We could get a nice price on this one going long on the Del Mar grass next out.
TRUSTINI: Just had a horrible trip as she looked to be launching a winning move when coming out for room but had to be steadied off heels, she then was angled back to the inside but had to come back outside to make a run but had little left. Look for better next out at a big price, she can dirt if sent out next at Los Alamitos.
GOLDEN NECKLACE: This filly made a big four-wide run turning for home at a big price, she was a clear second, four lengths better than the rest in this mile turf race. She is on the improve and will be a very tough girl going long on the grass next out.
OIL CAN KNIGHT: Jockey Abel Cedillo, who was the leading rider at Golden Gate, has been starting to ride on this circuit, mostly for Doug O”Neill. He can flat out ride and will be our jockey to watch at Del Mar. As for Oil Can, we would love to see him sprinting five furlongs on the grass next out. If so, we will be in a singling mood.
