Race 1

We start the Del Mar meet as we always do in front of the stands as the crowd stands and roars as the horses go by for the first time in this 1 1/16 route. No. 3 Miss California exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play. She had a ton of trouble in her last start and now will get stretched out. We would rather have seen her sprint. No. 2 Freckles Galore has had her chances but may appreciate the sea air and the same can be said about No. 4 Wildakceleration. No. 6 It’s Candy Time drops into a maiden claimer for the first time. 3**-2-4-6

Key Q 3 with 2-4-6

Race 2

We now go 5 furlongs on the grass. No. 7 Lakerville has done little wrong in his three lifetime starts, all sprinting on the grass with two wins and a close second. He will sit off all the speed and try and run them down at the wire.We will single in the picks. 7

Race 3

No. 2 Ziggy’s Stardust takes a little drop in class and gets blinkers on. Julien Leparoux will ride No. 5 Celestic Night for his future father in law Mike Mitchell and this colt won two of four starts here. This could be wake up time. 2-5

Race 4

Edwin Maldonado who had a great meet at Hollywood will try and start where he left off with No. 2 Imponente Purse for AC Avila who loves to win races here. No. 4 Te Rapa had his race and both of his wins came here at Del Mar. No. 1 Lamm gets his first start off the claim and Chantal will ride. 1-2-4

Exacta box 1-2-4 and win and place 2

Race 5

2yo take center stage now and to our surprise Bob Baffert has no one in here but John Sadler saddles No. 6 Life a Riley and No. 8 Ballard Ruler both first time starters who look live. No. 3 Money Makin Sam exits our HTW list and will be very hard to beat today. No. 7 Fighting Hussar ran 3rd right behind Sam in his first start and he had a tough race. 3-6-7-8

Key Q and tri using No. 3 first and second with 3-7-8

Race 6

This is the first leg of the split Oceanside going a mile on the grass. No. 1 Koast gets the patient Leparoux in the irons and this colt loves the grass and learned to rate a little last time out. Baffert sends out the War Chant colt No. 3 Midnight Crooner. No. 6 Boat Trip has found a home on the grass winning all three of his grass starts. No. 8 Blingo has faced tougher in his five race career. 1-3-6-8

Race 7

No. 5 Giant Steps is in top form and gets his first start off the Victor Garcia claim and he hits at around .30% first off the claim. No. 8 Valkyrie Missile has been one popular item at the claim box and has won three straight races. No. 12 Bet On Victor takes a huge drop in class. No. 11 Private Bounty will be making a late run. 5-8-11-12

Bet No. 5 win and place

Race 8

No. 2 Low Gear Power may get the right pace today and Martin Garcia who rode him for the win one race back is back on. No. 7 The Unusual One is back in just six days off a good win on the grass at Hollywood. He will need to sit today. 2-7

Race 9

This is the second half of the Oceanside. No. 7 Stoney Fleece and No. 9 Holy Candy who makes his first start on the grass look best. No. 2 Power Foot is the long shot special from off the pace. 2-7-9

Race 10

We will take our shot and single No. 1 Tiz a Daisy who drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and gets off the grass, with a clean trip she wins. 1

Pick four
