DEL MAR

Race 1

Unless one of the first time starter is very fast No. 2 Navy Hymn who exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play wins this. He was sent off at 9/5 in his first start and finished a clear second, we will single in the pick five. 2

Race 2

No. 3 May B gets a drop in class, gets blinkers on and will show all of his early speed today. No. 7 Big Sugar Soda is one of those Peter Miller shippers from New Mexico and they are usually very live. 3-7

Race 3

No. 5 Jens de Ville gets a major drop in class and that alone gives him a big shot in this $20k maiden claimer. No. 9 Miltee also drops and he gets on dirt for the first time, he will be making a late run. No. 11 Proud Captive is another dropper who gets off the grass. 5-9-11

Race 4

In this 2yo maiden race going 5 furlongs we will use two that are exiting the same race No. 2 Getoffmyback who was well bet and finished a closing 4th despite breaking slow and was only a half length behind the second place finisher No. 7 Captain Akers who will be the likely chalk unless one of the first time starters is live, watch the betting in this one. 2-7

Race 5

Trainer Wesley Ward is the master when it comes to young fast runners. He sends out two runners in this 5 furlong turf sprint for a purse of $75k and both are eligible for that ship and win bonus money. No. 1 Asia who comes off of back-to-back 5 furlong turf wins at Gulfstream Park and the well traveled No. 4 Hooligan who has run four times and all four different tracks. 1-4

Race 6

No. 1 Scherzinger gets Mike Smith back in the irons and Mike has been on this mare for all four of her wins. No. 2 Wasted At Midnight finished in front of Scherzinger one race back and rarely runs a bad race and is a must use in the exotics. No. 6 Baruta is the stablemate of Wasted At Midnight and has that good 7 furlong work for this. 1-6

Race 7

No. 3 Conquest Curlgirl gets on the grass for the first time and just may like it. No. 7 Zipessa ships in from Arlington Park for the top trainer Michael Stidham. She won first out when sent off at 3/2 going 6 furlongs on the synthetic surface, her trainer must think she can handle the grass. No. 12 Tiz Ladys Legs broke her maiden here last year and now makes her 3yo debut, she will be a much faster filly as a 3yo. No. 5 Sweet comes off a nice maiden breaker going this mile turf distance at Santa Anita, she will be sitting off the hot early pace and pouncing late. 3-5-7-12

Race 8

No. 2 Urloveneverfails looks odds on with these and she exits our HTW list, we will single in the late pick four. 2

Pick four

5th 1-4

6th 1-6

7th 3-5-7-12

8th 2

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