TODAY AT DEL MAR by Richard Eng

Post Time 2 p.m.

Race 1 – 6 furlongs, Purse $75,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

6 Vegas Strip – Another chance for this Bob Baffert colt; poor effort in synthetic debut, but his race two back is fast enough to win.

2 He’s a Bling – Was a ship and win horse in last and lost less than a length when fifth; suspect can sit off horses if asked.

Long Shot – 1 Cognoscente

Race 2 – 1 1/8th miles (turf), Purse $77,000. Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

6 Sistas Stroll – Ship and win horse from the Tom Proctor barn; like when they show ability at Churchill Downs, good tactical speed.

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

1 Presiding Justice – Has been a stride late 3 races in a row since graduating; can save all the ground under Drayden Van Dyke.

Long Shot – 4 Magna Warrior

Race 4 – 1 mile, Purse $43,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

7 Tres Borrachos – Sliding down the claiming ladder to this career low class; has tons of back speed figures to crush this field.

5 Thirtyfirststreet – This is a race full of horses on the down elevator; all depends on who has something left in the gas tank.

Long Shot – 1 Greeley Awesome

Race 5 – 1 mile (turf), Purse $77,000, Allowance, 3-year-olds and up

11 Snaps – The way the turf played on Friday, the lead is an good place to be; suspect Mike Smith will be pro-active tonight.

Long Shot – 2 Zimmer

Race 6 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $75,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

8 Kantune – Was well bet and ran well in career debut; Joe Talamo for Stewart Elliott who is on a suspension.

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles, Purse $77,000, Optional claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

6 Big Tire – Ran OK for third considering it was his synthetic track debut; they set an extreme wicked fast pace last out too.

Race 8 – 1 18th miles (turf), $300,000 Del Mar Oaks, Fillies, 3-year-olds

Race 9 – 6 furlongs, Purse $24,000, Claiming $16,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

5 Coconut Cream Pie – Has proven once again she is not a turf filly; looking for a much improved effort on the main synthetic track.

Race 10 – 1 mile, Purse $33,000, Maiden claiming $40,000, 3-year-olds and up
