1 Cayambe – Claimed by Jeff Mullins and spotted nicely to win; has a ton of back class to run an advanced speed figure.

Race 2 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

3 Imwiththeblonde – Ran a winning race in debut defeat; what that means is she ran faster than par time for a MSW baby race.

Long Shot – 9 Fiftyshadesofhay

Race 3 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $40,000, Claiming $25,000, 4-year-olds and up

5 Lime Rickey – Dallas Keen is on an 0-for-29 goose; he drops this horse down in class and keeps Rafael Bejarano, now or never.

6 Citizenship – FTS from Bob Baffert has been working bullets, what else is new; watch the tote board for additional clues.

Long Shot – 7 Exchange Student

Race 6 – 6 furlongs, Purse $36,000, Claiming $20,000, 3-year-olds and up

3 Blue Jay Attack – Subtle class drop and Rafael Bejarano remains loyal; first start ever at Del Mar, been pointed for this.

Long Shot – 0 Self Preservation

Race 9 – 7 furlongs, $300,000 Del Mar Debutante, Fillies, 2-year-olds

8 Executiveprivilege – She won the Sorrento in last despite an even effort; if she moves forward today, she could crush these.
