Preview: Trainer Peter Miller has been on fire since the meet opened going 9-for-30. He will cool down and when he does he’s a bet against as he can be very streaky. Doug O’Neill is second in the standings with a 5-for-45 mar. Seven trainers are tied with three winners each. On the other end, Jim Cassidy has slowed down since Del Mar with a 1-for-14 mark followed by Keith Desormeaux 1-13, Richard Mandella 1-12 and Steve Miyadi 0-8..
Race 1: #3 Dust It (5-2)
This filly drops into a maiden claimer for the first time for trainer Richard Baltas, who is 38% with this move. He is also 28% second time with a horse as this one shipped in from Florida to run at Del Mar. Jockey Rafael Bejarano takes over and he’s 28% with Baltas.
Race 4: #7 Recrown (4-1)
Trainer Matthew Chew almost scored the other day with a firster like this daughter of Recap, which gets 13% first time winners. Chew is 33% with debuting maiden claimers.
Race 8: #7 Miss Bliss (7-2)
This filly has early speed, which always seems to do well here, and she has a 7-2-3-0 record over this track. She just missed at this level in July and now Flavien Prat takes over and he’s 22% with trainer Mark Glatt.
