Race 1

No. 1 Caribou Club exits a strong race at Del Mar, he went off the 2/1 favorite and the runner who won came back to score again next out, he will be flying late but early speed has been holding on this rock hard turf course. No. 2 Allaboutmike gets Paco who is in town and will be gunning from the bell, he is 2 for 2 on this course. No. 9 Burning Brightly is in for Ireland where he won his last two starts, he gets first-time Lasix and Prat riding for D’Amato. 2**-9-1

Race 2

2yo maidens go a 1-1/16. No. 1 Draft Pick just missed first out at Los Al back in September and has some good works for this. No. 2 Instilled Regard looks ready to stretchout in this his third start and Mike Smith sticks. O’Neill is starting to heat up and he sends out No. 3 Canadian Game who will handle the distance. 1-2-3

Race 3

Starter allowance fillies and mares go down the hill. No. 3 Red Livy is the speed of the speed and owns a win down the hill. No. 10 Velvet Jones gets her first try on the grass and will fall into a perfect stalking position behind Livy. 3**-10

Race 4

$20k fillies and mares go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 3 Dissension fits at this level and will find a good pace to set up his late run. No. 4 Plane Lucky has gone his best running here and is reunited with Bejarano. 3-4

Race 5

Optional $40k 2yo go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Texas Wedge broke his maiden first out at this distance and then was tossed to the wolves in the Grade 1 Front Runner. No. 2 Utah Ute comes off a nice win at this level when getting the best of No. 3 Neighborhood Bully who looks to turn the tables on him. No. 4 Get Em Up Scout exits the same race. 1-2-3-4

Race 6

Maidens go down the hill. No. 3 Oiseau de Guerro is in from New York and lands Gary Stevens riding for Mike McCarthy, his works have been sizzling. No. 8 Schooley comes off the layoff for Miller, he showed big early speed in his two starts as a 2yo and looks very sneaky. After those two this race is a toss up. 3**-8

Race 7

30k maiden fillies and mares go a flat mile. No. 2 Took the High Road was sent a mile on the grass in her first start with straight maidens and now drops and will go better on the dirt. No. 9 Lovely Linda also drops and will show all of her early speed on the stretchout. 2-9

Race 8

$12,500 claimers go 5-1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Cal Cal Li Gowchis is the speed on the rail. No. 6 Black Tie ‘n Tails is another Peter Miller runner off the layoff with big early speed and a good last work. No. 9 One I’m Running To is the speed on the outside and the big drop makes him the one to beat. 9***-1-6

Race 9


Why not No. 2 Miss Southern Miss winning the Autumn Miss, she won the Surfer girl at this mile turf distance. No. 4 Tapped exits our HTW list as a $$$ play and exits the same last race as Miss Southern Miss. No. 6 Storm the Hill won the Surfer Girl by a head over Tapped. No. 8 Spin Me a Kiss also exits the race and is the speed but will need to contend with No. 9 Meadowsweet who has big early speed and exits the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks. No. 10 Reverse could be overlooked in her as she is in from Woodbine and gets Van Dyke riding for Baltas. Clement sends out No. 11 Lull who is in from Keeneland and she has good early speed. We say look for a price but we will opt for our HTW runner No. 4 Tapped. 4

Race 10

Optional $40k fillies and mares go six furlongs. No. 4 Bowie was last seen winning first out at Saratoga last July as a 2yo, she comes here and lands in the barn of Mandella and Prat will ride. No. 10 Marley’s Freedom exits our HTW list off a rousing maiden score, her last work says she is on go. 10**-4

Race 11

The day and the meet ends with 2yo maiden fillies going down the hill, we love it when Kent D sticks around for the last race and he jumps on No. 9 X S Gold for James Cassidy, D’Amato sends out No. 10 Carrie’s Success and Talamo gets on today. 9-10
