DEL MAR Race #2

Friday 08/08 04:30 PM Eastern

Top pick: #5 (LOOKIN FOR MONEY) (9-2) - One of two entered by trainer Doug O'Neill and they give him strong hand in this maiden contest. This filly ran both wide and evenly when debuting on May 8th at Santa Anita. Working well for her return, she drops a bit in class, and runs without blinkers. She gets a slight edge.

2nd pick: #8 (Suite One) (7-2) - The second of the O'Neill fillies she rallied to finish second here at this level going 5-furlongs July 18th. Fla.-bred travels an extra furlong this afternoon and that should be in her favor.

3rd pick: #3 (Nicole Michelle) (3-1) - Grey filly has finished close up in both starts facing tougher. One run type finished fourth here on July 23rd and improved her figure by 10-points that afternoon. Daughter of "Zensational" must be left in the win mix.

4th pick: #2 (Racing for Chasen) (5-1) - She showed nothing when debuting against males in late June on the Santa Anita turf, but rallied to finish second here facing a bit weaker on July 24th. Abrams home-bred can factor, but needs to improve some more for a shot at the top prize.
