Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar selections for Thursday, August 13

FIRST RACE: 1. Triple Vanilla, 2. Canadian Exchange, 3. Alyeska. LONG SHOT: Twosome.

SECOND RACE: 1. Chia Love, 2. Luvuryan, 3. Little Emma. LONG SHOT: Summer Veil.
THIRD RACE: 1. Sheeza Milky Way, 2. Joan of Arch, 3. Imflatoutsweet. LONG SHOT: Straight N Strong.
FOURTH RACE: 1. #2 No Ez Money (8-1), 2. Mighty Brown, 3. Alpine Luck. LONG SHOT: Johns Journey.

This gelding is making his second start off a long layoff and trainer Andy Mathis is an expert at that with a 33% (15-for-45) mark in this situation. The 6-year-old showed speed in his first try over the track and should be fitter here for jockey Santiago Gonzalez.


FIFTH RACE: 1. Intoxicating Move, 2. Soresca, 3. Zanbo. LONG SHOT: Agustina de Aragon.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Tumbleweekprincess, 2. Sooner Time, 3. Swiss Affair. LONG SHOT: Gypsy’s Rule.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. #2 TIZ FUTURITY (5-1) best bet, 2. Unusually Green, 3. Rainbow North. LONG SHOT: Temple Keys.

Trainer Mike Pender is still looking for his first win of the meet but he has done well on the turf in allowance races in the past at Del Mar. We would like to see new jockey Kent Desormeaux show more speed with this 5-year-old because there doesn’t appear to me much gas in this race and inside speed does well when the rails are at 24 feet.


EIGHT RACE: 1. Royal Gambler, 2. Relative Time, 3. Swiss Cheese. LONG SHOT: Brownhawk.
