Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar opinions for Sunday, Aug. 11

FIRST RACE: 1. Kiana’s Love, 2. Cavernndchipmunks, 3. Anonymously. LONG SHOT: Tip Top Gal.
SECOND RACE: 1. Drink, 2. Boyson, 3. Mongolian Legend. LONG SHOT: Lostinthemoment.
THIRD RACE: 1. Shining Through, 2. Klondike Creek, 3. Overdue. LONG SHOT: Battle of Memphis.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Inspiresse, 2. I’m the Hero, 3. Bast. LONG SHOT: K P Dreamin.
No matter what happens in this race keep track of the fillies returning down the line because this is one loaded 2-year-old filly maiden event.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Testimony, 2. Indy Jones, 3. Midnight Bandit. LONG SHOT: Blue Skye Jade.
SIXTH RACE: 1. NOLO CONTESTO (best bet), 2. Give Me the Lute, 3. City Rage. LONG SHOT: Carnivorous.
NOLO CONTESTO is making his debut on the turf and if he takes to it, watch out. Listen to the names of the horses that won races he has competed in so far in his young career: Kingly, Roadster (twice) and Mr. Money. I’d say he has been facing some tough hombres.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Anonymity, 2. Lady Ninja, 3. Yuvetsi. LONG SHOT: Best of Me.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Paige Anne, 2. Tacocat, 3. Awesome Drive. LONG SHOT: Text Dont Call.
The following horses are “stuck” in this race and expected to be scratched this morning: Overjoyed, Augure, and Circleofcolor.

Good luck.
