Trainer John Sadler gets jockey Corey Nakatani to ride DADDY D T (8-1), a son of Scat Daddy, in his first try on the grass. Offspring of Scat Daddy do well on the grass and going two turns. On top of that Sadler and Nakatani are a 46% combination the last two years at Del Mar.

This colt comes out of a loss to the undefeated Wake Up Nick. He has been working steadily during the meet and has a bullet in his last effort. He also comes out of a key race.
