Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar opinions for Sunday, Aug. 4 (updated)

NOTE: I didn’t have all my tools that I usually have when I make picks yesterday so I’m going to suggest you add some horses — if you want — in some races and if and when Del Mar puts out scratches I might put out some different selections

FIRST RACE: 1. Bunny Yogurt, 2. Sheza Factor, 3. And Counting. LONG SHOT: A Lonna At The Top.
SECOND RACE: 1. Toothless Wonder, 2. Unbridled’s Skye, 3. Juggles. LONG SHOT: Verynsky.
THIRD RACE: 1. Dr Wysong, 2. Papaclem’smidnight, 3. Wishful. LONG SHOT: Quit Kvetching.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Offshore, 2. Bam Bam Bryan, 3. Gabo’s Macondo. LONG SHOT: Bird Is the Word.

Must also look at Fabozzi and Offshore.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Phast Pharoah, 2. Eight Rings, 3. Shooters Shoot. LONG SHOT: Express Train.

Tough race for -year-olds and the Baffert mystique was blown up yesterday. Also look at Flash of Promise and Can’tbetemall, but neither trainer had good numbers with first-time starters.
SIXTH RACE: 1. DISTINCTIVE B (best bet), 2. Rafal, 3. Jack Van Berg. LONG SHOT: Grinning Tiger.

Morgan S., Landeskog, and Shane Zain must be looked at.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Gregorian Chant, 2. Jasikan, 3. Stubbins. LONG SHOT: Kingly.

Obviously Neptune’s Storm must be looked at considering jock and trainer but also look at Rijeka from the same trainer although I don’t like jockey Ruben Fuentes on the turf.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Passing, 2. Wilt, 3. Mr. Class. LONG SHOT: Vermeer.

Wide open event so also throw in Imagineiamfastest and Go Sammy Go.

Good luck.
