July 18, 2014
DEL MAR Race #2
Friday 07/18 04:30 PM Eastern
Top pick: #6 (GOSPEL MUSIC) (9-5) - The morning line favorite, he just missed racing at this tag on the Santa Anita dirt for this $20K tag on June 29th. It earned him a career best figure and it came in his first off a Pete Miller claim. Four-year-old has run well on synthetic surfaces in the past and is the horse to beat.
2nd pick: #4 (Forest Romance) (2-1) - Heavily bet in his debut on May 26th at Santa Anita, colt had all sorts of problems at the start and managed to finish an even third of six. Claimed that day by John Sadler (23% off the claim) he has this colt working fast and brings him back eight weeks later at the purchase price.
3rd pick: #1 (Macho Sox) (4-1) - Debuting gelding by "Macho Uno" has the rail and some sharp looking works on the Santa Anita dirt. Barn (Vlad Cerin) is capable of having one ready and this 4-year-old must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #2 (Concert Man) (20-1) - Longshot has some physical problems and is returning from the second of two very long layoffs in his career. He has early speed and finished second 12 1/2 months ago in his only previous try at this price tag.
