DEL MAR

Race 1 

2yo fillies go a flat mile on the grass and the red hot Doug O’Neill has two going in this race. No. 4 Kellianne Can Can who gets her first taste of the grass and No. 7 Exactamente whose early speed will play well on this course. They thought enough of this filly to run her in the Juvenile Turf here back in September as a maiden. 4-7

Race 2

Maidens go a flat mile on the dirt, No. 2 Armored Car gets off the grass and Mandella puts the blinkers on and that last work says he is ready. No. 4 Dream Team has not been good to his backers as he has lost his first two starts at .60 cents on the dollar and .80 cents on the dollar, maybe a mile will be the answer. No. 6 Action Hero ran his best race here going 7 furlongs back in September. 2-4-6

Double

1st 4-7

2nd 2-4-6

Race 3

One of our two singles today in the players pick five will be on No. 3 Lost Bus who has good early speed and gets a little drop in class and this trainer does well with his second out route runners. 3

Race 4

There is a ton of early speed in this race and that leads us to our other single No. 7 Derby Glass who is a perfect fit in here, he will sit off the hot pace and run them down late. 7

Win and place 7

Race 5

$50k maidens go a mile on the grass. No. 1 Prince of Prague just missed taking them wire-to-wire here in his last start going a mile on this turf course battling tooth and nail the entire trip. No. 6 Blue Law drops in with maiden claimers for the first time and gets Bejarano up. No. 7 Alltheleavesrbrown exits our HTW list as a $$$$$ play off a horrible last trip, he ran good on the grass at Arlington Park. 1-6-7

Exacta box 1-6-7

Pick five

1st 4-7

2nd 2-4-6

3rd 3

4th 7

5th 1-6-7

Race 6

2yo maiden fillies go a flat mile on the dirt, No. 1 Well Acquainted is in from Keeneland for trainer Motion who has won with his only other runner at the meet. No. 2 Pageant Material exits out HTW list as a $$$ play, she will be hard to beat. 1-2

Exacta box 1-2 and win and place 2

Race 7

No. 2 Burnaroundtheedges is the question mark runner of the race coming off a long layoff for trainer Ken Black who hits at .40% with his 90 plus days off runners. No. 3 Global Magician and No. 8 Law Dog look the two to beat in this five furlong turf sprint. 2-3-8

Race 8

Trainer O’Neill sends out No. 6 Octofy who was over her head last out, she will sit off the hot pace today and make her run down the lane. No. 8 Be a Lady loses Gutierrez who opts for Octofy but gets Bejarano, he will need to sit right off the hot pace. 6-8

Pick four

5th 1-6-7

6th 1-2

7th 2-3-8

8th 6-8
