Del Mar opinions for Saturday, Aug. 17 (Pacific Classic Day) UPDATED

FIRST RACE: 1. Fawree, 2. Route Six Six, 3. Paladar. LONG SHOT: California Journey.
==
SECOND RACE: 1. ORQUIDIAS BIZ (best bet), 2. Paid Informant, 3. Samurai Charm. LONG SHOT: Lucia’s Design.
==
THIRD RACE: 1. Stormy Liberal, 2. Eddie Haskell, 3. Undrafted. LONG SHOT: Calexman.
It was all I could do not to pick UNDRAFTED. There is so much speed in this race and he is the only closer, but STORMY LIBERAL AND EDDIE HASKELL love this turf course so much, I just couldn’t do it.

10TH RACE (Grade I Pacific Classic): 1. Tenfold, 2. Seeking the Soul, 3. Quip. LONG SHOT: For the Top.
Once again I will take this platform to say upon deaf ears to the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club: YOU SHOULDN’T BE RUNNING YOUR PREMIER RACE AT 6:30 P.M.!!! Those who haven’t been there on Pacific Classic Day, people start leaving after the fifth or sixth race and there is a steady stream afterwards. This year’s race is one of the best betting affairs in the history of the event but it shouldn’t have a post time of 9:30 p.m. on the East Coast. The race should be earlier on the card and there really wasn’t anything wrong with starting the first race at 1 p.m. for all those years. But hey what do I know? I know Del Mar is leaving a lot of wagering dollars on the table by running this race so late.

11th RACE: 1. Betty F, 2. Salsa Bella, 3. Woodfin. LONG SHOT: Desert Oasis (SCRATCHED) New long shot: An Eddie Surprise..

Good luck.
