FIRST RACE: 1. NEWFOUND GOLD (BEST BET), 2. Half Dome Dude, 3. Sunrise Legacy. LONG SHOT: Time to Go Robo.
Was beaten as the favorite, claimed by trainer Bob Hess Jr. and now moved up a class level. She should fit right in here with these and leading rider Rafael Bejarano takes the mount.
The for sale sign is out on this 6-year-old making his second start off a year layoff. He ran OK in his return, passing some tired horses in the stretch at this level. Today, jockey Flavien Prat, who has had a good summer, decides not to ride the inside two horses for this gelding, now trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, who is 3-for-10 at Del Mar with Prat.
Trainer AC Avila claimed this 3-year-old filly out of a winning effort at Golden Gate and move her up in class. Avila is 36% first off the claim and 38% off a layoff of 61-180 days. He has been training this 3-year-old for this 7-furlong distance and he is 2-for-3 with jockey Fernando Perez. Upset special.
10TH RACE: 1. Redressthebalance, 2. With a Twist, 3. Zuzu’s Petals. LONG SHOT: Toomanytomatoes.
