Horse Racing, Del Mar, Aug. 25

Today at Del Mar

Post Time 2:05 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $20,000, Claiming $8,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Yer Woman – An angle to follow today, Rafael Bejarano off; he’s at Saratoga so his horses at Del Mar should offer more value.

9 Indy Beauty – Has run 3 strong races in a row since being claimed by Jack Carava; he has kept this mare happy and she’s showing it.

Long Shot – 7 Vikkilee

Race 2 – 1 mile, Purse $28,000, Maiden claiming $30,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Coranto – Beaten favorite was claimed by Dan Hendricks; Garrett Gomez riding for that man Rafael Bejarano.

8 Street Rocket – Jeff Mullins barn has been heating up the past few weeks; Joe Talamo takes over for Alonso Quinonez.

Long Shot – 3 Surely Swift

Race 3 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $71,000, Optional claiming $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Perfecta – Like the pace scenario for this closer type; notice the MSW win came as soon as she went 2-turns for the first time.

2 Highly Rated – May have the wrong favorite as the Richard Mandella grad looks strong; may have to duel early with Glowing Spirit.

Long Shot – 4 Glowing Spirit

Race 4 – 1 mile, Purse $24,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Smil’n From Above – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low level; tactical speed to sit a decent trip.

8 Vaadka Logic – Tough parking lot post with a short run to the first turn; has good early speed to try to find a spot.

Long Shot – 5 Technicality

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $50,000, Claiming $40,000, Fillies, 3-year-olds

9 Mia Isabel – Could be a big day for Garrett Gomez; last time she ran for $40K, she was a winner under Eswan Flores.

2 Candy Trophy – Taking a huge class drop racing first time for a price tag; class relief and tactical speed to carve out a trip.

Long Shot – 5 Tornado Allie

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

5 Ondine – Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry so keep an eye on Book Club; lean to this one by Medaglia d’Oro, a $100K stallion.

8 Lady Katfish – Was well bet in debut and was well meant too; tight third finish in debut, the key is which way she goes, up or down.

Long Shot – 2 Revive Me

Race 7 – 6 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds

5 Explain – Like this ship and win horse coming from Churchill Downs; Kentucky and Florida stock has run much better than the Texas horses.

12 Fast N Furius Cat – Tough parking post but has a rider, Garrett Gomez, who can carve out a trip; early speed to spare.

Long Shot – 8 Charlie Company

Race 8 – 1 3/8th miles (turf), $200,000 Del Mar Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

7 Dhaamer – Last time won as easily as a horse can possible win a race; this is a tougher group, but he is in dead stroke right now.

1 Casino Host – Sat far back last time behind a dawdling early pace; closed well but never had a chance after the first half mile.

Long Shot – 4 Interaction

Race 9 – 6 furlongs, Purse $32,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

1 Roman Charity – Has won two in a row, got claimed by Julio Canani; subtle class rise but she is in top form right now.

9 Princess Suances – Taking a huge class drop to face much easier; been away 10-weeks, returns in a red flag spot.

Long Shot – 2 Appealing Resume

Race 10 – 6 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

2 Dr. Nip – Looks like one of the strongest favorites on the card; Leandro Mora is listed for the suspended trainer Doug O’Neill.

11 Midnight Raven – Tepid chalk off a strong second last time; second start off a 10-month hiatus, key will be if he bounces.

Long Shot – 12 Chicago Hero

Best Bet – 5 Explain (race 7)

Del Mar Sunday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 17/4/$24.40; Long Shots, 8/1/$6.60; Best Bet, 1/0/$0

Del Mar Totals – 407/104/$668.40; Long Shots, 207/26/$248.80; Best Bets, 23/12/$48.20
