DEL MAR Race #1
Wednesday 08/06 02:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (SMALL MOVES) (5-2) - Grey filly takes a sizable class drop in her second back off a series of layoffs. Speed/stalker tired in her return race at Pleasanton and has been working well locally. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #4 (Miss American Pie) (6-1) - Price play is lightly raced and comes off a "game' wire-to-wire win over weaker on the Los Al dirt July 10. She has some back class and earned her highest figure ever when winning her only previous start on a synthetic surface. Her early speed makes her dangerous.
3rd pick: #2 (Sydney's Darling) (8-1) - She has some early speed and is taking a big class drop in her second of a 9-month layoff. Mare by "Macho Uno" is in a crafty barn (Art Sherman) and can factor at a big price.
4th pick: #1 (J and S Express) (2-1) - Veteran mare drops in class and goes turf to "poly" in her first since April 10. Stalker has won here in the past and is a threat if in shape off the almost four month vacation.
