DEL MAR Race #3

Thursday 08/28 03:05 PM Eastern

Top pick: #6 (NOBLE BIRD) (5-2) - He missed by a "head" here at this level and distance Aug. 3. A career best overall and I believe that the field that day was much better than this. Working fast since and the horse to beat.

2nd pick: #5 (Silver Torch) (6-1) - Gelding stretches back out and moves up in class after finishing second here going 6-furlongs for a $40K tag on Aug. 15. It was his second back from almost a 10-month layoff and it was by far a career best.

3rd pick: #4 (Nowalking) (8-1) - Longshot has been freshened up for the past month and he has a new trainer for this attempt (Phil A'Amato). Home bred by "Hard Spun" is working fast and is racing on a synthetic surface for the first time.

4th pick: #3 (Constantine) (5-1) - $200K son of "Roma Ruler" is stretching out after a good effort in a local sprint on Aug. 2. It was his first off a four month break and a career best. Working fast since and you'll get trainer Bob Baffert at a square price.
