Saber’s Del Mar analysis for Sunday

Race 1 

$20K maiden fillies and mares go 6 1/2 furlongs. No. 5 Misty At the Top just may wake up first time off the Doug O’Neill claim. No. 6 Our Romance ran second in her last two races at this level. No. 7 Save the Story looks odds-on vs. this so-so group. No. 8 It’s a Riddle usually grabs a piece of the pie. 7**-5-6-8 

Race 2 

Maiden 2-year-olds go 6 1/2 furlongs. No. 2 Roman Centurian had a big last work for this his debut race. Jockey Mike Smith rides the Bob Baffert first time starter No. 4 Life is Good. He just worked a big bullet for this on Nov. 16 and the word is that Baffert is thinking Kentucky Derby. 4***-2

Race 4 

$8K fillies and mares travel a flat mile. No. 5 Boonesboro Beauty fits at this level off her good effort last out for a $10K tag. With the scratch of Soothing, Boonesboro Beauty is the one to beat. 5** 

Race 5 

California-bred maiden fillies and mares go five furlongs on the grass. No. 5 Master Ryan has run four times on this five-furlong grass course with 3 seconds and a third-place finish. Jockey Umberto Rispoli gets the ride today and we think he will get him home on top today and we will single. 5*** 

Race 6 

California-bred 2-year-old $50K maidens go six furlongs. No. 5 Shimmer Me Timbers just missed first out at this level and will be tough to beat today. No. 2 Careless Kitten drops and the blinkers go on. 5-2 

Race 7 

$80K optional 3-year-olds travel a flat mile on the grass. No. 2 Goalie finds a field loaded with early speed and will be flying late. No. 3 I’m Leaving You exits the same last race as Goalie and will get first jump. 3-2 

Race 8 

The $100K Cary Grant at seven furlongs for California-breds. No. 3 Take the One O One is a perfect 3 for 3 here at Del Mar. No. 5 Oliver has hit the board in all six of his races at Del Mar and was second in this race last year. No. 6 El Tigre Terrible won the Real Good Deal here in July at this distance. No. 8 Galilean loves to win races as he has won 6 of his 12 lifetime starts. No. 10 Rookie Mistake is a good fit in this wide-open race. 3-5-6-8-10 

Race 9 

$80K maiden 2-year-old fillies travel a flat mile on the grass. It’s usually a good sign when jockey Mike Smith sticks around to ride a 2-year-old maiden in the last race of the day. He has the leg up on first-time starter No. 5 Quick and Dirty for the hot Mike McCarthy barn. No. 2 Chicks Dig Munny drops and the blinkers go on. She ran good on the grass here back in August. 5-2
