Del Mar selections for Friday, Aug. 28

Race 2: #2 Midnight Belle (3-1)

Trainer Mark Glatt got the comeback race out of the way for this daughter of Bernardini and now he sends her two turns for the first time, something she is bred to do. The 3-year-old has a couple of good works since opening week and she’s out of a Bertrando mare and I loved Bertrandos stretching out plus jockey Rafael Bejarano stays aboard.


Race 5: #2 Blind Dreams (6-1)

Seems to be improving but she needs to show she wants to win. Jockey Gonzalo Nicholas had a big win on the turf last week and seems to understand this 4-year-old filly. Trainer Mike Pender has had a tough meet and due for some good luck. Inside and speed work well on this turf course when the rails are at 30 feet.
