DEL MAR Race #2
Friday 08/15 04:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (THEATRICAL CAST) (3-1) - She chased while very wide after breaking from an outside post (11th of 11) and held gamely to finish a distant second racing here at this tag and trip July 31st. It was her first in two months and trainer Jeff Mullins brings her back quickly for this attempt.
2nd pick: #9 (Miss Kit Kat) (8-1) - Price play tired to finish last when debuting here for a $50K tag July 27th. She showed some speed while racing between horses and the effort was a useful one. Trainer John Sadler brings her back quickly with a sizable drop in price.
3rd pick: #10 (L X Sunrise) (7-2) - Filly has finished second in six straight races all on the Santa Anita dirt at various distances. One-run type is working steadily for her first in two months and first on a synthetic surface.
4th pick: #1 (Todai Sing) (8-1) - Lightly-raced filly has some early speed, breaks from the rail, and is making back-to-back starts for the first time. Home bred by "Purim" can factor at a square price.
5th pick: #4 (Ava's Ballet) (15-1) - She exits the same last race as "Theatrical Cast" and tired badly after racing wide. Only her debut so this filly is eligible for improvement at long odds.
