Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar selections for Thursday, Aug. 28

FIRST RACE: Prettyhotprincess, 2. Hit Girl, 3. Popalicious. LONG SHOT: On Golden Pawn


SECOND RACE: 1. A Red Tie Day, 2. Big Cazanova, 3. Patrioticandproud. LONG SHOT: Stoney Fleece.


THIRD RACE: 1. Noble Birl, 2. Clickjab, 3. Constantine. LONG SHOT: Silver Touch.


FOURTH RACE: 1. I’msoulflattering, 2. Sheza Eyeopener, 3. Always an Angel. LONG SHOT: Woodys Wharf.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Znelle, 2. Small Town Cop, 3. Rare Punch. LONG SHOT: Changing Game.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Carrick Bay (best bet), 2. Enduring Eric, 3. Asparagus. LONG SHOT: Chilada.

CARRICK BAY (8-1), a 3-year-old filly, will be running for the “Ship ‘N’ Win” program after running at Arlington Park. Trainer Vann Belvoir takes over the training and he is 24% first off the claim. On top of that, he lures red-hot Mike Smith to ride.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Seeking Shamrocks, 2. Air of Royalty, 3. Only Josie Knows. LONG SHOT: Glamsquad.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Inspired Wisdom, 2. Next Book, 3. It Is Living Water. LONG SHOT: Smokey’s Legacy.

Looks like jockey Mike Smith is going after the meet title as he rides this maiden claimer and sticks around for the last race. This gelding INSPIRED WISDOM (8-1) pressed the pace early in his debut and faded. Look for him to be tighter here for trainer Marty Jones.
