Race 1

No. 4 Pierre Bear exits our HTW list, this 2yo colt gets a big time boost in class by Mike Mitchell first off the claim. 4

Key Play

$10 win and place 4 for $20

Race 2

No. 6 Teamwork is another who exits our HTW list, he was unlucky to lose last time out going six furlongs on the Hollywood turf course, with all the early speed in here he will get a good setup for his last run. It is ironic that No. 7 Bruce’s Dream was last seen in October of ‘08 beating Teamwork in his maiden debut and has not run since and he is running against that same rival after nine months on the shelf. 6-7

Key Play

$5 Q 6-7 for $5

$10 win and place 6 for $20

Race 3

No. 3 Repo is one of three 2yo fillies entered for Doug O’Neill in the 100k CTBA, this girl looks as solid as you can get against these. 3

Race 4

No. 3 Stunningly had a nice prep on the grass for this race, she loves Del Mar and looks set for a big effort. No. 4 North Rodeo is usually close and jockey Espinoza got to know her last time out. 3-4

Key Play

$2 pick four

1st 4

2nd 6-7

3rd 3

4th 3-4 for$8

Race 5

No. 6 Digestivo gets the bug boy Santiago riding for O’Neill, this will be her second start off the claim and O’Neill hits at around 23% second off the claim. No. 7 Dailies is back to the price of her last win and at this flat mile distance on the grass, look for an improved effort. No. 9 Kinesiology broke her maiden on this course last year at this distance, she looks like a very live comebacker for trainer Drysdale. 6-7-9

Key Play

$2 exacta box 6-7-9 for $12

$2 double

4th 3-4

5th 6-7-9 for $12

Race 6

No. 3 Adebayor exits our HTW list this 4yo colt drops for the first time out of the straight maiden ranks into this 50k maiden claimer and takes her blinkers off a mover that trainer Carla Gaines hits at around 40% winners when she takes the blinkers off. We will key on him and use No. 1 Hutch, No. 7 Launch The Bull and No. 8 Great Home in some Q’s and a tri. 3***-1-7-8

Key Play

$4 Q 3 with 1-7-8 for $12

$1 tri 3 with 1-7-8 with 1-7-8 for $6

$1 tri 1-7-8 with 3 with 1-7-8 for $6

Race 7

No. 2 Scofield Barracks is another who exits our HTW list and we will key on him using three others in the race and duplicate our play in race six. We will use No. 1 I Want My Money, No. 5 Hockeythehayman and No. 9 Shelter Island. 2***-1-5-9

Key Play

$4 Q 2 with 1-5-9 for $12

$1 tri 2 with 1-5-9 with 1-5-9 for $6

$1 tri 1-5-9 with 2 with 1-5-9 for $6

Race 8

No. 8 Gretsky was scratched on opening day when entered in the Oceanside Stakes and opted for this spot, he is the one to beat. No. 10 Cleisthenes was well bet in his first start in the states when beaten by Gretsky. 8-10

Key Play

$10 Q 8-10 for $10

Race 9

No. 4 Falkenberg could be live at first asking vs. a very soft group of 25k maiden fillies. No. 11 Lady Boudicca drops for her second start and gets blinkers on which is a good move for trainer Gallagher. 4-11

Key Play

$2 pick four

6th 3

7th 2
