DEL MAR

Race 1

No. 1 Mireya Diaz gets her eighth start as a 2yo, more starts than some horses run in a career nowadays. She has some speed and gets a big rider upgrade -- today just may be the day for her to graduate. No. 6 Shine’n Time drops for this her second start. No. 9 Deputy Judy R N has been well bet in both of her starts and is in a top barn. 1-6-9

Race 2

No. 2 Crystal Empire and No. 4 Beau Chant get musical jockeys as Rosario switches to Chant, he rode Empire last time and Santiago switches to Empire, he rode Chant in her last two starts. No. 3 Worth The Fight has dangerous speed and a hot jockey. 2-3-4

Key Play

$2 double

1st 1-6-9

2nd 2-3-4 for $18

Race 3

No. 5 Goldeneh Madina has a big closing kick and the extra half furlong can only help her cause. No. 7 Sheskey showed big improvement in her last and may be set, No. 10 Organic will be out winging and may get the jump on the others. 5-7-10

Race 4

No. 3 Chelcee’s Hope exits our HTW list, this 7yo mare ran big on this course on Aug. 14 and looks to be sitting on one more big effort. We will key her in the rolling double and play some Q’s and tri’s with No. 1 My Maloof Rocker, No. 4 Burna Dette and No. 5 Wickednwackyingrid who will have to be caught. 3 with 1-4-5

Key Play

$2 double

3rd 5-7-10

4th 3-5 for $12

$4 Q 3 with 1-4-5 for $12

$1 tri 3 with 1-4-5 with 1-4-5 for $6

$1 tri 1-4-5 with 3 with 1-4-5 for $6

Race 5

No. 2 Master Chef is by the sire Vronsky who hits at 33% with his first-time starters, No. 3 On Holy Ground’s trainer hits at 20% with second-time starters, No. 4 Pico Pico exits our HTW list and gets another confident boast in class. No. 9 Saarface has been facing much tougher and know gets the services of the hot Joe Talamo. 2-3-4-9

Key Play

$1 tri box 2-3-4-9 for $24

Race 6

No. 1 Jazzandthemagician ships in from Kentucky for trainer Mike Mitchell and owner Zayat Stables. He exits a key race and at one time was well thought of as he faced the likes of Giant Oak and Captain Candymancan. No. 2 Clue Me In is another who was well regarded as a 2yo facing the likes of Chocolate Candy and Massone. 1-2

Key Play

$2 double

5th 2-3-4-9

6th 1-2 for $16

Race 7

No. 4 Queen Ofthe Catsle loves this course and is the one to beat in what appears to be a very competitive race. 4

Key Play

$10 win and place 4 for $20

Race 8

No. 3 Truly A Delight ran well at this distance on Aug. 5 and has a shot at giving David Bernstein a rare win. No. 4 Panda is trained by Hall of Fame trainer Jack Van Berg who at one time won races in the hundreds but almost never gets a win in the drug infested times we live in but has stated he will never go that route and he deserves a lot of respect. Panda for some reason gets the services of Bejarano and that may be a good sign for Jack. No. 7 Forza Del Destino ran behind Panda in his last start and now gets a big break in the weights with Santiago taking over the mount. No. 11 Marcade is always bet but just can’t get the job done but looks like part of the tri. 3-4-7-11

Key Play

$2 double

7th 4

8th 3-4-7-11 for $8

$1 exacta box 3-4-7-11 for $12
