It appears Del Mar will be on the turf today, but @Jonlindodrf reported this morning workouts on the main track were on the slow side but the sun is out.
FIRST RACE: 1. Keezheekoni, 2. Gucci Brown, 3. Little Emma. LONG SHOT: Sweet Profit.
Golden Gate horses have done well at the meet so far and this one broke its maiden at first asking on the turf so there’s no telling how good she is. Good turf jockey Corey Nakatani takes the mount for trainer Bill Morey, who is 24% with horses hat won their last race.
Jockey James Graham is trying his hand at Del Mar this summer after riding in the Midwest. He’s good on the turf and jumps on this North California shipper for trainer Ed Moger Jr. This son of Tribal Rule likes to be forwardly place so should be in from the bell.
This 3-year-old filly was chasing Lady Eli, the undefeated turfer, two races in a row and then lost to Celestine in her last race, which has proven to be a key race. Trainer Wesley Ward ships West and jockey Gary Stevens is more than happy to take the ride on the speedster.
