DEL MAR Race #4
Sunday 08/04 03:40 PM Eastern
Top pick: #5 (TOOMANYTOMATOES) (3-1) - Hard-hitting filly rallied to finish second here to today's rival "Meltarib" racing for a $40K tag on July 19th. Claimed that day by Mike Mitchell (225 off the claim), he's worked her since, and has her spotted where he can't lose her.
2nd pick: #4 (The Only Key) (2-2) - Veteran mare has gone 22-5-2-5 on the grass, and English-bred import has been freshened up since she was claimed by Jerry Hollendorfer for $40K on June 6th. Speed/stalker fits nicely, and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #7 (Meltarib) (7-2) - As mentioned in the write-up for "Tomatoes," she defeated that rival by a length here on July 19th, and is the only one entered win a previous victory on this course. Lightly raced 6yo mare has back class, and is a threat right back.
4th pick: #1 (Burns Turn) (6-1) - Lightly raced daughter of "Henny Hughes" stretches out in distance and goes "poly" to grass following her maiden win at Hollywood on July 7th. Has the rail, room for upside, and Bejarano stays put.
