FIRST RACE: 1. Bunuska, 2. New Nature, 3. Full of Spice. LONG SHOT: Shared Image.
SECOND RACE: 1. Distinctiv Passion, 2. Sweet Swap, 3. Ankeny Hill. LONG SHOT: Bahamian Squall.
The 4-year-old DISTINCTIV PASSION (5-2) won twice on the old Del Mar grass course, although was DQ’d from one win. Despite the fact, this is the first race on the new course he is fast and been training very fast in the mornings for due of trainer Jeff Bonde and jockey Edwin Maldonado. SWEET SWAP finished fifth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, a length behind winner Bobbys Kitten.
THIRD RACE: 1. Victoria Falls, 2. Aguacita, 3. Come Again Please. LONG SHOT: Counting Queens.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Let’s get Crackin, 2. Zip Cat, 3. Courtisde. LONG SHOT: Dare Me Devil.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Conquest Dreamin (best bet), 2. Temple Keys, 3. Air Nashoba. LONG SHOT: Spring for It.
CONQUEST DREAMIN (6-1), a 2-year-old son of Artie Schiller, hits the turf for the first time after showing speed going shorter. He should enjoy going two turns as trainer Mark Casse is 23% with second time starters plus great turf jockey Corey Nakatani stays aboard.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Silver Torch, 2. Shackleford Banks, 3. Hidden Zensation. LONG SHOT: Rainbow North.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Gabby’s Purim, 2. Warren’s Tricia R., 3. Kukaluka. LONG SHOT: Practising.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Dance Dee a Door O, 2. Dr. Vincentstin, 3. Speedy Tornado. LONG SHOT: Justonemorething.
