DEL MAR Race #1
Friday 08/15 04:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #3 (KINGS ADVENTURE) (5-2) - Lightly-raced and speedy, colt tired late here to finish a close up fourth when facing special weights July 19th. He's worked since and trainer Jeff Mullins will drop him into a claimer for the first time.
2nd pick: #4 (Silver Torch) (2-1) - Gelding finished fourth of nine, beaten just over two lengths racing here for a $62.5K tag July 31st. It was his first since early October and the hot barn of Bob Hess Jr. brings him back quickly and drops him down to a new low. Strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Enlisted Man) (7-2) - Claimed at Churchill Downs on June 20th for $30K trainer Mike Puype has rested him up since and will move him up a bit in price and switch him from dirt to "poly."
4th pick: #1 (Coolington) (6-1) - Speedy grey gelding is working fast for his first since late Nov. Working very fast at Los Alamitos, he has the rail and will take them as far as he can.
