Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar opinions for Thursday, Aug. 10

Preview: The Del Mar main seems awfully slow. There is some grumbling around on both sides. Check out the workout times and the times of the races. There have only been two horse deaths this season (one on the main track and one on the grass). It will be interesting to see how this track is come Breeders’ Cup time. I think SoCal horses will have a big advantage and that’s why I’m surprised more Eastern-based horsemen haven’t tried to run over this track this summer.

FIRST RACE: 1. African Fighter, 2. Alex Rossi, 3. Oh Newman. LONG SHOT: Accelerant.
SECOND RACE: 1. Brookes All Mine, 2. Warm Endowment, 3. Comet Sixty Two. LONG SHOT: Top Tizzy.
THIRD RACE: 1. Vigorously Juan, 2. Sooner Boomer, 3. Clifton Beach. LONG SHOT: Flash Henry.
FOURTH RACE: 1. COOL MUNNINGS (best bet), 2. Schwary’s Girl, 3. Ib Prospecting. LONG SHOT: Sunday Prophet.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Forthenineteen, 2. Blooming Hannah, 3. Forbidden Command. LONG SHOT: Scathing.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Miss Pretty, 2. Dream Proof, 3. Hold That Smile. LONG SHOT: Myrcella.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Coils Gold, 2. Touching Rainbows, 3. The Street Fighter. LONG SHOT: Miracle March.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Zillinda, 2. Speakers, 3. Battleground State. LONG SHOT: Quality Girl.

Good luck.
