DEL MAR Race #1
Friday 07/18 04:00 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (MOTOR 'N MONA) (4-1) - Heavily bet when debuting on June 26th at Pleasanton, she chased a very fast pace and tired down the stretch while not under any pressure. She's worked fast since, drops in class, and trainer Jeff Bonde wins at a 26% rate second time out.
2nd pick: #3 (Champion Risk) (3-1) - One of the few juveniles from the barn of Doug O'Neill that under-performed in their debuts at Santa Anita. She's worked well since, has blinkers added, and Elvis Trujillo stays aboard.
3rd pick: #1 (Suite One) (6-1) - Also from the O'Neill stable, she's working nicely and will break from the rail. Filly by "Circular Quay" has noted front-end specialist Marty Pedroza aboard and he's won with 13 of 45 when teamed up with O'Neill over the past 19 1/2 months.
4th pick: #2 (Yes She's a Dancer) (5-1) - The field's most experienced filly, she has some speed and may hold on for a minor award if the debuting runners aren't much.
