HORSE RACING: Del Mar, 9/7/11

Today at Del Mar

Post Time 2 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

4 Tuesdays With P – Clever win and capable of running much faster; Mike Mitchell unleashes an arsenal today.

2 Michailasheartlite – Huge class drop and switch to Joel Rosario mean business; for the maestro Jerry Hollendorfer.

Long Shot – 3 Safe Word

Race 2 – 6 furlongs, Purse $63,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

3 Surplus – John Sadler is also emptying all barrels to vie with Mike Mitchell; should be fun watching the competition.

5 Lord Vronsky – Like the turn back in distance where he should be flying late; big rider switch to Joe Talamo.

Long Shot – 4 Sun’s Out

Race 3 – 6 furlongs, $85,000 CERF, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Givine – Tries synthetics for the first time; has proven class on grass, may fit well as a late closing sprinter.

2 Rumor – Richard Mandella has high hopes for this filly; first stakes may set her up for a fruitful 4-YO campaign.

Long Shot – 7 Evita’s Sister

Race 4 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $37,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

9 Times Gone By – Mike Mitchell may have overreached in the Cougar II off the claim; these are his friends today.

10 Red Alert Day – Huge class drop shows Doug O’Neill not afraid of losing him; lots of back class to move forward.

Long Shot – 8 Porfido

Race 5 – 1 mile, Purse $37,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds

8 Go Richie Go – He ran for cheaper than this at Gulfstream; good spot to recoup the claiming price.

5 Full Deputy – Tepid chalk in a wide open affair; kicks off a very contentious final pick 6 of the meet.

Long Shot – 4 Rhythm in May

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, $85,000 Pirates Bounty, 3-year-olds and up

7 Kinsale King – Should beat these if he has anything left in the tank; his Bing Crosby was better than looked.

4 Carbonite – His race two back, if repeated, would smoke these; if a high flying 6-of-9 wins over synthetics.

Long Shot – 8 Ain’t No Other

Race 7 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $65,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Hard to Resist – Gets class relief from two graded stakes for this; meant to be a confidence builder moving forward.

7 Ela Gorrie Mou – Tough trip in last suggests results in here with a clean trip; turf racing is often times the trip.

Long Shot – 5 Glowing Spirit

Race 8 – 7 furlongs, $250,000 Del Mar Futurity, 2-year-olds

8 Creative Cause – He won the Best Pal with something left; like the parking lot post to stalk the early pacesetters.

4 Majestic City – Unbeaten favorite should excel in these one-turn stakes; by City Zip, 2-turns becomes a question mark.

Long Shot – 2 Gun Boat

Race 9 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $65,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

5 Courtside – Smoking win last time improved his Del Mar and synthetic resume even higher; clearly the one to beat.

9 Galleta Monstruo – Claimed by Mike Mitchell off a sharp win in last; has the back class to handle tougher foes.

Long Shot – 10 Master Chef

Race 10 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $63,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 California Heat – Last favorite in the last race of the meet; would be appropriate if gutsy Barry Abrams takes the cake.

5 Swiss Charm – Ran well in her turf debut up at Santa Rosa; key for me is vote of Garrett Gomez riding for Eoin Harty.

Long Shot – 7 Evasine Charmer

Best Bet – 8 Creative Cause (race 8)

Del Mar Monday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 19/5/$43.40; Long Shots, 9/2/$21.60; Best Bet, 1/1/$3.20

Del Mar Totals – 599/136/$961.40; Long Shots, 292/45/$535.80; Best Bets, 34/14/$72.40

SIMULCAST PLAY OF THE DAY – #1 Sophia (5/1) in race 7 at Presque Isle Downs. For scoring purposes, we’ll make a hypothetical $2 win, place and show bet, $6 total. On Monday, Candyman E won at Parx Racing paying $2.60 to win, $2.40 to place and $2.10 to show. Stats – 150/97/$780.10
