DEL MAR Race #4

Thursday 07/31 03:35 PM Eastern

Top pick: #9 (HASHTAG STORMY) (5-1) - Daughter of "Stormy Atlantic" cost $135K this past April and she raced evenly when sprinting on a similar surface at Arlington Park on July 3rd. Bet heavily that day, she's working fast since coming to Del Mar and is bred for the grass and longer distances.

2nd pick: #3 (Awesome Diamond) (8-1) - Debuting Irish import is by international sire "Galileo" and cost $625,000 this past March. Bred on both sides to love the turf, her works are steady and several indicate that she has plenty of talent. Win candidate.

3rd pick: #2 (C'Mon Sister) (7-2) - One of five with racing experience, filly rallied to finish a distant second to a "much the best" winner at this level and distance facing males at Santa Anita June 27th. Well bred, she's back in with her own sex and must be left in the mix.

4th pick: #7 (Ultimate Holiday) (5-2) - Bred for the grass, she rallied while wide to finish third when debuting in a dirt sprint at this level at Los Alamitos July 4th. Trainer Rick Baltas moves her to the infield and stretches her out to a mile.
