Del Mar selections for Wednesday, Aug. 25 (updated)

FIRST RACE: 1. Speckles, 2. When I’m calling U, 3. First Flower. LONG SHOT: Whodoo Pirate.


SECOND RACE: 1. Silk in Silver, 2. Cayanna, 3. Acute. LONG SHOT: My B F F.


THIRD RACE: 1. Temeeku (best bet), 2. Best Efforts, 3. Doodetta. LONG SHOT: Star Act.

The 3-year-old TEMEEKU (4-1) was off slow in her debut, but made up ground in the stretch. She now gets two turns, which she was bred for. Trainer Peter Eurton is better second time out and jockey Joe Talamo is one of his main men.

FIFTH RACE: 1. West Riding, 2. Zanbo, 3. Tiz a Kiss. LONG SHOT: Passionate Diva.


Race 6: #5 Racing for Chasen, 2. Wedding Blush, 3. Rosie Brown. LONG SHOT: Urgraceisenough.

RACING FOR CHASEN (5-1), a 2-year-old filly, has improved each time out and jockey Stewart Elliott, who is returning from an injury, seems to have the right idea what to do with her. She likes the Polytrack and could improve some more in her first try against winners.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Hidden Zensation, 2. In Excessiveness, 3. Sir Macho. LONG SHOT: Romar Success.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Grand Yodeler, 2. Long Hot Summer, 3. Lost Bus. LONG SHOT: Do the Danse (SCRATCHED) NEW PICK: My Fiona.
