Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar opinions for Thursday, Aug. 3

FIRST RACE: 1. Mr. Hale, 2. Bullet Express, 3. Looks Good N a Tux. LONG SHOT: Pumpkin Star.

SECOND RACE: 1. SLIM FIT (best bet), 2. Just Mine, 3. Chocolate Coated. LONG SHOT: Unlucky Hillary.
I could not find any speed in this race so I’m going with the filly going two turns for the first time from Glen Hill Farm. Slim Fit is bred to go long and trainer Tommy Proctor can get them ready with the best of them.

THIRD RACE: 1. West Coast Bias, 2. Mag the Mighty, 3. Boldest Vow. LONG SHOT: Snowdust.
Here’s another Glen Hill filly, but this time on the turf. Looks like she wants the lead and with the rails out to 30 feet on the turf course that’s a good thing. Drayden Van Dyke rides both Glen Hill runners.

FOURTH RACE: 1. Special Story, 2. Braddock, 3. Burn Me Twice. LONG SHOT: Liberation.

FIFTH RACE: 1. Unobtainable, 2. Summer’s Burst, 3. Bold Determination. LONG SHOT: Optic.

SIXTH RACE: 1. Merrily Merrily, 2. La Premiere Etoile, 3. Ready to Hula Lula. LONG SHOT: Secret Thorn.

SEVENTH RACE: 1. Jonny’s Choice, 2. Kristi’s Copilot, 3. Ike Walker. LONG SHOT: Pioneerof the West.
Pretty simple here. I’m going with the horse-for-the-course in Jonny’s Choice. He’s a perfect 3-for-3 on the Del Mar dirt. Nuff said.

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Spiritual Warrior, 2. Thermopolis, 3. Insubordination. LONG SHOT: Spend It.

Good luck.
