Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar selections for Sunday, Aug. 10

FIRST RACE: 1. Princess Bertrando, 2. Haaay Sexy Lady, 3. Tatum’s Gold. LONG SHOT: Cleverly Tuned.


SECOND RACE: 1. Taelyns Prince, 2. I’vegotafeeling, 3. Home School. LONG SHOT: Toowindytohaulrox.


THIRD RACE: 1. Harlan’s Vitesse, 2. Close to the Edge, 3. When We Met. LONG SHOT: Fly Blue.


FOURTH RACE: 1. Demonic, 2. Conquest Two Step, 3. Hadfunlastnight. LONG SHOT: My Samurai Warrior.


FIFTH RACE: 1. He’s On His Toes, 2. Shaniel, 3. Criminal Element. LONG SHOT: Deputy Heat.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Motown Men (best bet), 2. Gladding, 3. Ezio. LONG SHOT: Wildcat Moon.

Trainer Phil D’Amato took over the stable for Mike Mitchell and hasn’t missed a beat. D’Amato is 23% first time with a horse and 40% with horses off a layoff of more than 180 days. MOTOWN MEN, a 5-year-old, has a win at Del Mar on the Polytrack and a good work coming in.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Mucho Blessings, 2. Windy Forecast, 3. Diva Express. LONG SHOT: Maybellene.

Make no mistake about it: this is a loaded 2-year-old filly maiden special race so why not go with a price. MUCHO BLESSINGS (12-1), a daughter of Macho Uno, will appreciate the extra distance and trainer Peter Eurton is better with second-time starters.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Miss Serendipity, 2. Wishing Gate, 3. Moulin de Mougin. LONG SHOT: Cozze Up Lady.


NINTH RACE: 1. Juliet’s Tizzy, 2. Victory Parade, 3. Broadcaster. LONG SHOT: Hidden Zensation.
