Just a not here: Lottie drew post No. 14 for this race (moving in to No. 13 following a scratch on Wednesday), but trainer Graham Motion was so unhappy with the draw, he entered her against the boys on Friday. I think he will run her Friday, but if he stays in this spot give her a strong look despite the post.

Del Mar opinions for Sunday, Nov. 12

FIRST RACE: 1. It’s a New Year, 2. Flip the Coin Jan, 3. Arno’s Mane Man. LONG SHOT: Croatian.
==
SECOND RACE: 1. Arch Prince, 2. Allaboutmike, 3. Full Access. LONG SHOT: Moonlight Blue.
==
THIRD RACE: 1. Airfoil, 2. Pray Hard, 3. Madelyn’s Wild Max. LONG SHOT: Prohibition.
==

==
FIFTH RACE: 1. It’s Just a Bob, 2. Reign On, 3. Secreto Primero. LONG SHOT: Magic Taste.
==
SIXTH RACE: 1. Senator Bob, 2. Got Even, 3. Just Kidding. LONG SHOT: Incredible Luck.
I originally had Ike Walker in the No. 2 slot, but he will be scratched this morning and run back later this week.
==
SEVENTH RACE: 1. ICY STREET (best bet), 2. High Promise, 3. Cascade Rock. LONG SHOT: Shaky Alibi.
Icy Street returns to the turf course of his best effort when he finished second on Aug. 19 at Del Mar. That race was an ultra-key event with at least five next out winners. Icy Street wasn’t one of them as he finished fourth at Santa Anita, running an extra furlong. He cuts back to a mile here with Drayden Van Dyke and I’m hoping for a return to form. This is a tough maiden race, but I’m looking for a return to that effort.
==
EIGHTH RACE: 1. How About Zero, 2. Majestic Heat, 3. Bad Ju Ju. LONG SHOT: Cuddle Alert.
==
NINTH RACE: 1. Silent Movies, 2. Conquest Sabre Cat, 3. Taima the Hawk. LONG SHOT: Special Season.

Good Luck.

Del Mar selections for Saturday, Nov. 11

FIRST RACE: 1. Rolling Shadow, 2. Lostintranzltion, 3. Gee Street. LONG SHOT: Quality Girl.
==
SECOND RACE: 1. Norwegian Spy, 2.Dangerously Close, 3. Sally Simpson. LONG SHOT: Pattin for a Dance.
==
THIRD RACE: 1. Ready Eddie, 2. Violent Ridge, 3. Ishi. LONG SHOT: Yes I’m Ready.
==
FOURTH RACE: 1. RED KING (best bet), 2. Run Like Rhett, 3. Waldorf. LONG SHOT: Supreme Venture.
This colt finished third last time and Flavien Prat stays aboard. The 3-year-old shortens up in distance so Prat will have to go to his closing kick sooner.
==
FIFTH RACE: 1. Run Away, 2. Beautiful Shot, 3. Mourinho. LONG SHOT: Italiano.
==
SIXTH RACE: 1. Excessive Kid, 2. Play Hard to Get, 3. Crown the Kitten. LONG SHOT: Lord of Chaos.
==
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Totally Boss, 2. Destiny Awaits, 3. Cool Bobby. LONG SHOT: Kanthaka.
Trainer Brian Lynch doesn’t have a string on the West Coast but that’s where owners Jim and Susan Hill live In Calgary and obviously they wanted the 2-year-old Totally Boss to begin his career at Del Mar. The $180,000 yearling purchase is by the sire Street Boss, who gets 17 percent winners first-time out and on the other side he’s out of an Elusive Quality (15 percent) mare. Lynch wins 15 percent first time out and there are a couple of good works showing.
==
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Tizanillusion, 2. Painting Corners, 3. Vai. LONG SHOT: Powder.
==
NINTH RACE: 1. Freddies Dream, 2. Jonny’s Choice, 3. Tisdale. LONG SHOT: South Texas Lingo.

Good luck
