SECOND RACE: 1. Exotic Ghost, 2. Rprettyboyfloyd, 3. Banza No Oeste. LONG SHOT: Sense of Glory.

THIRD RACE: 1. Samdar, 2. Dr. Troutman, 3. Original Intent. LONG SHOT: John and Montan.

FOURTH RACE: 1. Treasure Hunter, 2. Midnight Soot, 3. Neighborhood Bully. LONG SHOT: Fender Bender.

EIGHTH RACE: 1. Eighty Proof (BEST BET), 2. No New Friends, 3. R U Serious. LONG SHOT: Red Clem.
Strictly a pedigree play in today’s eighth race. Trainer Mick Ruis bred, owns and trains No. 8 Eighty Proof (12-1). The gelding appears to be a speedy sort with his father, Coil, out of an Idiot Proof mare, which is all speed. Ruis is 43% the last couple of years at Del Mar with 2-year-olds (remember Bolt d’Oro) so he can get a first-timer ready.


Top choice winners: 1 (Duranga $7.40, first race)

Second choice winners: 3 (Tidal Effect $10, second; Stormy Liberal $4, fourth; Hoss Cartwright $5, fifth)

Third choice winners: 1 (Beach View $20, seventh)

Long shot winners: 1 (Amazon Cry $12.40, sixth)

Good luck.
