Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar selections for Friday, Aug. 1 (updated)

FIRST RACE: 1. Bow Tie Belle (best bet), 2. Exclusive Girl, 3. Flyin for a Livin. LONG SHOT: Spectactular Proof.

BOW TIE BELLE (3-1), a 3-year-old filly, gets an absolute trainer and jockey upgrade to Jerry Hollendorfer and Drayden Van Dyke, respectively. Hollendorfer is 30% first time with new horses.


SECOND RACE: 1. Tempest Rising, 2. Volkonsky, 3. Wonderful Union. LONG SHOT: Go Black Tie.


THIRD RACE: 1. Superboot, 2. Forest Romance, 3. Tribal Mystery Man. LONG SHOT: Storm the Heavens.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Guy Code, 2. Los Gatos, 3. Pulmarack. LONG SHOT: Spring for It.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Glorious Rebecca, 2. Chippette, 3. West Ruler. LONG SHOT: Pursuitofparadise.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Winninginfashion (SCRATCHED), 2. Jade With Envy, 3. Market Quote. LONG SHOT: Jennyway U Want It. NEW PICKS: 1. Jade With Envy, 2. Market Quote, 3. Jennyway U Want It. LONG SHOT: Highly Rated. 

This race is off the turf after another injury at Del Mar. The track won’t resume grass racing until Wednesday at the earliest.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Red Outlaw, 2. Alert Bay, 3. Grazen’s Hope. LONG SHOT: True Ten.

Trainer Peter Miller usually comes to Del Mar loaded and this season has been no exception. RED OUTLAW (5-1), a 3-year-old gelding, has been away since February but he is a perfect 3-for-3. Two of those wins were in open company and he drops back in with Cal breds today in this minor stake.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Jimmy’s Date, 2. Salt Power, 3. Justa Splash. LONG SHOT: Berlusconi.
