DEL MAR Race #2
Saturday 08/09 02:35 PM Eastern
Top pick: #7 (SNUGGLEY BEAR) (3-1) - He returns to the west coast after racing evenly at Delaware Park in a sprint stakes on the dirt July 5th. It was his first start in three months and he's been training fast locally for this grass attempt. He's been sharp in all his turf races 3-0-2-1 and his spped/stalking style fits perfectly with this field.
2nd pick: #5 (Badasmywifeletsmeb) (10-1) - Price play returns to the grass after two starts off of it, one each on dirt and "poly." His two best have come on the turf and he has the best early speed of this field. Win threat at a square price.
3rd pick: #1 (Spring Action) (5-2) - Blinkers go on $80K gelding by "Spring at Last." Lightly-raced, improving, and he's the probable favorite. Obvious win candidate, but at a short price.
4th pick: #8 (Wicked Finance) (6-1) - No-speed type has made up ground in five straight at this level with four of those coming on the grass. Working fast and a fast and/or contested pace would help his prospects out.
