Del Mar selections for Thursday, Aug. 27

FIRST RACE: 1. Ike Walker, 2. Doyouknowsomething, 3. Jens de Ville. LONG SHOT: Papa Kade.

SECOND RACE: 1. Treasuring, 2. Jade Princess, 3. Shakti. LONG SHOT: Wake the Dawn.
THIRD RACE: 1. Sinfully, 2. Antinanco, 3. City State. LONG SHOT: Okaad.
FOURTH RACE: 1. #5 Bosserette (10-1), 2. Pearl de Vere, 3. Sweet Profit. LONG SHOT: Mark of a Gem.

Trainer Howard Zucker drops this 4-year-old filly into a claimer for the first time. She ran credible in her first race in a year last time and should be tighter this time. Jockey Joe Talamo takes over. Zucker is 17% on the turf.


FIFTH RACE: 1. HANK THE TANK (5-2) best bet, 2. I’m Not Bullish, 3. Jimmy the Juice. LONG SHOT: Big Finish.

This son of In Summation is bred to sprint and he makes his career debut for trainer Peter Miller, who is seeking the Del Mar training title. There are some quick works at San Luis Rey Downs and Miller is 27% with first-timers. Miller is also 29% with jockey Martin Garcia the last 60 days.


SIXTH RACE: 1. Take Back Spring (8-1), 2. Kyankes, 3. Housemaker. LONG SHOT: Showcase Winner.

Trainer Kristin Mulhall is pulling out all of the stops here as she adds blinkers (27%) to this daughter of Spring at Last. It may look like the filly is moving up in class but she’s going from facing older fillies and mares to only facing 3-year-olds here.

SEVENTH RACE: 1. All Run, 2. Gravity Force, 3. Swiss Cheese. LONG SHOT: Overcomer.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Tribal Zen, 2. Bussjaeger, 3. Midnight Edition. LONG SHOT: Rickles.
