DEL MAR

Race 1

No. 4 Gold Journey ran an even race with straight maidens in her first start here on July 26th, she drops in with $30k maiden claimers, has a good work since and Bejarano gets the call as the blinkers go on. We will take out shot and single in the players pick five. 4

Win and place 4

Race 2

Tom Proctor has two entered in the mile turf race, the one we prefer is No. 3 Theatre Star with Van Dyke one of his go to riders. No. 4 Bunairgead is in from Ireland and Kent D gets the call. No. 1 Queen of The Sand was entered in a stakes race last weekend but scratched for this much easier spot, she will get the hot pace to make her late run. 1-3-4

Race 3

No. 7 Kate’s Event made a nice late run going 6-1/2 furlongs here and now he will go a mile. No. 8 Press Baron gets his first start off the claim and gets a top jock for this. 7-8

Race 4

$20k maiden claimers go 5 furlongs. No. 1 Boom Boys ran good in his one start at Santa Anita at this level when taking some action, he has speed, the rail and a hustling jock and a good last work here on the poly. 1

Race 5

Hess and Desormeaux hook up with dropper No. 5 Contessa B., who gets off the grass and won in her only start on the synthetic surface at Keeneland. No. 9 Tiz Zoe Cee also drops and she ran good on the synthetic surface in the past, her last works says she is ready to fire a big shot. 5-9

Exacta box 5-9 and win and place 9

Players pick five

1st 4

2nd 1-3-4

3rd 7-8

4th 1

5th 5-9

Race 6

Maiden fillies and mares go 1-1/16 on the grass. No. 2 Penny Sixpence showed some good early speed in her first start in the country and just may like it here. No. 6 Sweet as a Rose is unlucky to still be a maiden just missing in her last two starts going a mile on the grass. No. 7 Freethinker ran a solid third right Behind Rose last out. 2-6-7

Exacta box 2-6-7

Race 7

No. 5 Fable won going this mile distance on the grass in her last start here on July 24th, she will now try the poly and that last work says it will be ok. 5

Win and place 5

Race 8

If No. 1 Hope ’n Pray can take back of what is going to be a very fast early clip he can win first off the Mathis claim. No. 8 Cuneo gets his second start off the Pender claim, he goes from a route to a sprint and Kent D sticks around to ride the last race of the day. 1-8

CHECK FOR LATE SCRATCHES AND CHECK THAT THE SADDLE CLOTH NUMBERS MATCH OUR SELECTION NUMBERS
