No. 8 Becker’s Galaxy gets his first start off the Jack Carava claim and he loves this distance. 1-2-8

Race 5

No. 7 Dive Down comes off a long layoff but had some good early speed last year and gets a top jock. No. 8 Dr. Vincentstein gets his second off the layoff ad looks the speed of the speed with Bejarano getting the call.

Race 7

Maiden 2yo fillies go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 3 Plane Lucky ran big here fist out of the box for Peter Miller on July 16th. Trainer John Brocklebank is very good with these young horses and he sends out first time starter No. 5 Olotta Shaken. No. 9 Mc Hottie is a second time starter for good connections, she had a troubled trip in her first and will go much better today with the move outside. 3-5-9

Race 8

THE GRADE I DEL MAR OAKS GOING 1-1/8 ON THE GRASS

Jockey James Graham gets his big shot here on the West Coast on No. 4 Sharla Rae who has been facing some real good fillies, her last work here has her on go. No. 6 Prize Exhibit is in tip top form looking for her 3rd straight graded win and she has a nice last work. Wesley Ward sends out the speedy No. 8 Sunset Glow with Gary Stevens, she will try and take them wire-to-wire. 4-6-8

Race 9

The move back to the dirt makes No. 2 Rule He Will the main foe in here. No. 5 Allidoisdreamofyou is in from Churchill Downs and lands in the barn of Ron Ellis looking for some ship and win bucks. 2-5

Race 10

Maiden fillies and mares go one mile on the grass. There is a ton of early speed in here so we will look for a few closers. No. 2 Sweeter Thancandy really fits the bill and No. 9 Redheads Rule just may take to this mile trip and fall into the perfect stalking trip as could No. 10 Artisticdifference. 2-9-10
