Horse Racing: Today at Del Mar, July 23


Post Time 2 p.m.

Race 1 - 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $47,000, Maiden claiming $80,000, Fillies, 2-year-olds

7 Hennythelovepenny - Bullet workouts at San Luis Rey Downs for Peter Miller; Elvis Trujillo is getting a shot in big barns.

2 Shez a Masterpiece - FTS from Craig Dollase barn; worked a bullet at Santa Anita that may have tipped her hand.

Long Shot - 5 Nicole Michelle

Race 2 - 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 6 feet), Purse $75,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Susan B Good - Could be one of the shorter priced favorites today; of course, being a chalk in week one was the kiss of death.

1 Euroclydon - Like the rail post on this turf course; can save all the ground and find room to rally turning for home.

Long Shot - 7 Three Blondes

Race 3 - 1 mile, Purse $24,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Winninginfashion - Woke up with a career best effort in last; leap of faith that there is one more step of improvement left in her.

3 Warren’s Lil Margie - Fourth start off the claim by Jeff Mullins; subtle class drop and Tyler Baze remains loyal to the cause.

Long Shot - 7 Gia Is a Bella

Race 4 - 6 furlongs, Purse $28,000, Claiming $12,500, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

9 Mizzilli - This ship and win invader looks to have a puncher’s chance to upset; strong synthetic resume at Turfway and PID.

4 Woebegon - Is 0-for-3 lifetime at Del Mar, but has a solid synthetic resume; hopefully the drop in class will help.

Long Shot - 1 Fanny Brice -

7 Mal Verde - Has run two big turf sprints under his best; speed to lead but suspect can rate if asked by Drayden Van Dyke.

2 Gangnam Guy - Class relief from the Echo Eddie stakes for this; Mike Smith has been selective with mount, and winning a lot.

Long Shot - 3 Public Policy

Race 6 - 1 mile, Purse $38,000, Claiming $20,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

2 Dublin Dancer - Has a sterling synthetic resume from Golden Gate Fields; like the key vote coming from Rafael Bejarano.

Long Shot - 6 Swissarella

Race 7 - 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $77,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Raised a Secret - A tip from opening week was to look for horses who have won at Del Mar; this guy has a shot at a square price.

11 Quality Plan - Broke his MSW last year at Del Mar and did not start again; Bob Baffert brings him back off a one year layoff.

Long Shot - 8 Kate’s Event

Race 8 - 1 mile (turf, rail at 6 feet), $90,000 Wickerr, 3-year-olds and up

5 No Jet Lag - Talented enough to run in the BC Mile behind Wise Dan; this is a softer spot for return, but he has bigger fish to fry.
