HORSE RACING

TODAY AT DEL MAR

By Richard Eng

Post Time 2 p.m.

Race 1 – 7 furlongs, Purse $16,000, Claiming $10,000, 4-year-olds and up

Doriprize – Don’t mind a parking lot post in an elongated sprint; Alonso Quinonez can clock the speed late.

Frankelstein – Tepid chalk in a wide open race; like the turn back in distance, don’t like the rail from the chute.

Long Shot – Twin Turbo

Race 2 – 1 mile, $85,000 Windy Sands Handicap, 3-year-olds and up

Limestone Edge – Shipped west because he’s better over synthetic surfaces; won last out at Churchill, fresh and fit.

Dakota Phone – Class relief from two grade 1 stakes for this; classifies as a confidence booster for him.

Long Shot – Monzante

Race 3 – 7 furlongs, Purse $19,000, Maiden claiming $25,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Sindyfromsantacruz – Sliding down the claiming ladder to a career low class; speed to play catch me if you can.

Ten’s Salty Sally – Solid second in career debut for Mike Pupye; if she improves one step, she’ll be right there.

Long Shot – Goal Girl Michelle

Race 4 – 1 mile, $100,000 El Cajon, 3-year-olds

Lt. Hopeful – Speed and the rail, he will set a fast pace; sprinter stretching out plays catch me if you can.

Grazen – Perfect post for Garrett Gomez to stalk Lt. Hopeful; he’ll sit on his flank and try to pass in the lane.

Long Shot – Fu Peg He Rat

Race 5 – 7 furlongs, Purse $30,000, Starter allowance $40,000, 3-year-olds and up

Black Kettle – Been training all summer at Del Mar for this; parking lot post is OK, tactical speed to sit a trip.

Wicked Mischief – Impressive debut win rallying from last to first; 5-YO started slowly spotting the field many lengths.

Long Shot – Charlie and Chris

Race 6 – 1 mile, Purse $53,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

Take a Hard Look – FTS from the Bob Baffert barn; his babies for Hal Earnhardt are particularly quick from the gate.

Pulsion – Did everything but win last time in a fast effort; repeat race surely puts him into the number.

Long Shot – Came Aboard

Race 7 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $60,000, Allowance, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

Good Time Sally – Good second in last after a better debut win two back; she has room to improve in a tough heat.

Mohaka – Excellent return second off a 9-month hiatus; question will be if she bounces, repeats, or moves forward.

Long Shot – Emmy Darling

Race 8 – 7 furlongs, $300,000 Del Mar Debutante, Fillies, 2-year-olds and up

Mi Sueno – Exits one impressive win in the Sorrento; she looked like a filly who was just getting warmed up.

Champagne d’Oro – Eric Guillot has an uncoupled entry; this is the longer price, showed a lot of moxie in MSW win.

Long Shot – Necessary Evil

Race 9 – 5 1/2 furlongs, Purse $51,000, Maiden special weights, Fillies, 2-year-olds

Crisis of Spirit – Rumor has it Bob Baffert is loaded with fast babies; watch the tote board for clues on this.

Stockings – If Champagne d’Oro wins race 8, upgrade this one; more than liable to improve for trainer John Sadler.

Long Shot – Candy’s Pleasure

Race 10 – 1 1/16th miles (turf), Purse $39,000, Claiming $32,000, 4-year-olds and up

Yes It’s a Cat – Solid return off a 2-month mini vacation; he can turf, save ground for uncoupled Jeff Mullins entry.

Epic Power – Ran sluggishly in last, he’s better than that; like that Garrett Gomez stays loyal to the cause.

Long Shot – Smooth and Savvy

Best Bet – Mi Sueno (race 8)
