Race 1

We will use the speed and a closer in this race; the speed is No. 2 Greely’s Ghost who gets off the grass and back to the main and he won in his only attempt on this track at this distance, the closer is No. 5 Bustanai who looks spotted for action by Mike Mitchell and this 3yo colt won at this distance in his only try at Del Mar. 2-5

Race 2

No. 1 Queenie Marini has run the fastest of those that have run and really woke up when dropped to this 40k level in her last start, No. 5 Banana Cream Pie was well bet in her one and only and the extra furlong can only help her chances. 1-5

No. 1 Pacific Avenue has a good work and the cozy rail, No. 4 Rents Paid has a sharp 5 furlong work for Hollendorfer and No. 8 Daylight Storm is the one to beat as he has hit the board in all five of his starts here with three wins a second and a third. 1-4-5**

Race 5

There is just a ton of early speed in the Grade 2 Oak Tree Mile so we will go with No. 2 Victor’s Cry who will sit back off the hot pace and pounce down the lane, No. 5 Sidney’s Candy could be the speed of the speed and he absolutely freaked in his first turf race. 2**-5

Race 6

We have another race just loaded with early speed so we will use No. 6 Offlee Wild Boys and No. 10 Jailbird Jimmy, both will be making big late runs as the speed comes back to them. 6-10

Race 7

No. 3 Naughty Mariana looks to have a big shot at the upset as she has some dangerous early speed, No. 9 Vanishing Grey will be right on the heels of the Naughty Mariana. 3-9

Race 8

In the wide open Grade 1 Ancient Title Stakes we will take our shot and single No. 5 E Z’s Gentleman as trainer Bob Baffert seems to be winning every Stakes race he has a horse in and now E Z gets his main man Martin Garcia back in the irons and he won with this guy in the past and he is also on the win every other race pattern. 5

Race 9

We will go three deep in the last leg of the late pick four using No. 4 Rio De Vino with Russell Baze taking the mount for trainer O’Neill, No. 6 Kumiva has hit the board in both of his starts here on the grass and looks very live off the layoff and No. 7 Big Coz a lightly raced 4yo colt who looks to be sitting on the win 4-6-7
