DEL MAR

Race 2 -- #6 Gallant Gent - Was a sneaky first time starter out of the Janet Armstrong barn. She’s pulled this off in the past. Gent was bet early and late but it looked like the horse gods did him in. He got squeezed and steadied hard at the start putting him dead last and far back in this 5 ½ furlong race. I actually quit watching for him. Then out of no where he was coming but, as the horse gods would have it, he had to take up and check hard off heels. He then swung five wide and stormed home for the win in an amazing performance. He was claimed and it will be interesting to see how he runs next time out for his new connections.

Race 4 -- #2 Angel of Mystery - Looked good in this spot but got stuck down on the rail, had to wait off heels and never really got going. Toss this effort and give her another shot.

Race 7 -- #2 Big Bad Leroybrown - Loves this 7 furlong distance and will love Del Mar. Look for him to run another big race at the sea side oval. $$$$$
