Horse Racing: Today at Del Mar: August 21, 2014

Post Time 2 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 furlongs, Purse $33,000, Claiming $16,000, 3-year-olds

6 Pillar of Strength – Ship and win candidate goes for Bob Hess and Kent Desormeaux; they have been terrific in tandem.

3 Sudden Rumor – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low level; his races over Santa Anita dirt were better.

Long Shot – 4 Newport Red

Race 2 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $28,000, Claiming $12,500, 3-year-olds and up

5 Newfound Gold – Claimed by Kristin Mulhall off a win in debut over Del Mar synthetics; repeat effort would beat these too.

2 Gal Has to Like It – Claimed by Ted West off a decent third; barn has won 3-of-6 starts at the meet, flying under the radar though.

Long Shot – 4 Senator Bob

Race 3 – 5 furlongs, Purse $38,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

7 Haaay Sexy Lady – Taking the biggest class drop in racing from MSW to maiden claiming; expect a pure speed effort.

8 Moonie – FTS has been working well for the small Eddie Freeman barn; watch the tote board for additional clues.

Long Shot – 11 Brazilian Barbeque

Race 4 – 1 mile, Purse $31,000, Claiming $25,000, 3-year-olds and up

8 Kochees – Taking a solid class drop in search of victory; switching from turf to synthetics and stretching out in distance again.

5 Counting Days – Did everything but win last time and is now aggressively raised in class; tactical speed to sit a nice trip.

Long Shot – 1 Run Hide

Race 5 – 6 furlongs, Purse $75,000, Maiden special weights, Cal-breds, Fillies, 2-year-olds

9 Stormy Adieu – Ship and win candidate ran well in career debut over Arlington Polytrack; rare Cal-bred racing in Illinois.

5 Ashley’s Sassy – Typical green debut, slow early, fast late; figures to improve a step in second career start.

Long Shot – 10 Appealing Lady

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $43,000, Starter allowance $40,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

10 Bunuska – Facing winners for the first time after an impressive debut win; $40K price tag made her eligible for this.

5 Pearl de Vere – Peter Eurton barn has some live runners today; has run second in six synthetic starts, so she can handle the stuff.

Long Shot – 8 Fly to Freedom

Race 7 – 1 3/8th miles (turf, rail at 30 feet), Purse $77,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

6 Christopher Street – He ran the 1 3/8th distance last time out; marathon distance is truly a gallopers race.

10 Skip Tony – Figures to draw in off the also eligible list; won sharp in first race off the claim by Jerry Hollendorfer.

Long Shot – 1 Brother Pete

Race 8 – 6 1/2 furlongs, Purse $25,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

11 Gospel Music – Really underachieved in last; the key for me is if he runs the speed figure he did two races ago, chance to upset.

6 Salt Power – Exits a bullet workout; Rafael Bejarano for the suspended William Antongeorgi, who got a raw deal last week.

Long Shot – 8 Golden Chalice

Best Bet – 5 Newfound Gold (race 2)

Del Mar Wednesday – Picks/Winners/Mutuels, 16/5/$35.60; Long Shots, 8/0/$0; Best Bet, 1/0/$0
