DEL MAR Race #5
Wednesday 08/06 04:05 PM Eastern
Top pick: #9 (MISSING GROOM) (3-1) - Speed/stalker tired badly last out racing very wide on the local turf. He had finished 2nd in his previous pair on the dirt and is working fast for his return to a synthetic surface. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #3 (Prospector Alley) (7-2) - Freshened up since June 12th, he's training very fast locally for what will be his first ever on a "poly" track. He's been bet in many of his races and if he runs to her wotks, the rest are in trouble.
3rd pick: #7 (Beach Fever) (6-1) - Lightly raced and improving, he's in a good barn (MarkGlatt) and 3yo is training fast here for his first on a synthetic surface.
4th pick: #6 (Golden Guy) (9-2) - He's finished 2nd in all three starts and has performed "gamely" in each. Home bred should be involved from start-to-finish.
5th pick: #10 (Tuff Storm) (10-1) - Improving gelding runs off a 7-week freshening and will be going turf to "poly". His post is of no help and it may limit him to a minor award.
