Post Time 2 p.m. PT

Race 1– 6 ½ furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, 3-year-olds and up

1 Who’s the Star – Exited a very sharp performance in debut, if he improves just a step he’ll be difficult to handle

6 Bobby Bo – Trainer Bob Baffert has an uncoupled entry so caveat emptor, the other Baffert is #4 Risk and Reward

Long Shot– 3 Affable

Race 2– 5 ½ furlongs, Purse $70,000, Maiden special weights, 2-year-olds

2 Drink The Wind – Peter Miller has been really busy this meet so far, he points his summer stable to win at Del Mar

6 Murray – Bob Baffert has a 3 prong uncoupled entry so caveat emptor, this one has Flavien Prat up so that’s a message

Long Shot–  7 Barossa

Race 3– 5 furlongs (turf, rail at 12 feet), Purse $55,000, Claiming $50,000, 3-year-olds

10 Hot Box – Speedball must overcome a parking lot post in this abbreviated sprint, turf has played well to early speed

2 Gates of Heaven – This guy was claimed by Peter Miller last time out off a pretty decent effort, Flavien Prat takes over

Long Shot–  7 Gator Shining

Race 4– 6 furlongs, Purse $45,000, Claiming $32,000, 3-year-olds and up

5 Alexandros – With the generous perks for Ship and Win candidates you need to study each one even more carefully

3 Major Cabbie – Tepid chalk in a pretty wide open affair, main vote comes from Flavien Prat who has his pick of the litter

Long Shot–  2 Bibleman

Race 5– 1 mile (turf, rail at 12 feet), Purse $38,000, Starter allowance $50,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

7 Viazar – Last seen during the Del Mar fall meet but clearly was pointed for this, like that Mike Smith keeps the call

3 Suki – Sure to be hammered in the wagering and why not, classy Churchill invader has the Ship and Win going for her

Long Shot–  6 Deise Delight

Race 6– 5 ½ furlongs, Purse $36,000, Maiden claiming $50,000, Cal-breds, 2-year-olds

7 Thirsty Chapo – A green yet solid career debut, broke a step slow but then when he found a rhythm rallied nicely late

4 I’m Winning – Takes a brave man to bet a horse that ran a 0 Beyer speed figure last time out, not much to beat

Long Shot–  3 Medina Man

Race 7– 5 furlongs (turf, rail at 12 feet), $80,000 Daisycutter Handicap, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

2 Querelle – In a race loaded w early speed types let’s try this Peter Miller dead late closer, will see all the pace she needs

5 Superstition – There is so much early speed signed on I think Flavien Prat may opt to try and take back to save some horse

Long Shot– 4 Constantia

Race 8– 6 ½ furlongs, Purse $74,000, Optional claiming $62,500, 3-year-olds and up

6 Parsimony – This horse has ability but has been weirdly managed, at 8/1 odds I consider him a must use option

7 Colt Fiction – He has had a very productive season so far but note how well he has performed in the past at Del Mar

Long Shot–  1 Canadian Pride

Race 9– 1 1/16th miles (turf, rail at 12 feet), $150,000 California Dreamin’, Cal-breds, 3-year-olds and up

10 North County Guy – Oddly enough he has run turf races longer and shorter than this distance but never this distance

6 Ward ‘n Jerry – You can get 8/1 odds on him because Flavien Prat took off, but Trevor McCarthy is more than capable

Long Shot– 5 Indian Peak

Race 10– 6 ½ furlongs, Purse $25,000, Maiden claiming $20,000, Fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up

8 Rowangoeshollywood – Claim was voided last time out and now Alfredo Marquez gets a free roll w first time Lasix

12 Kind But She Lies – Dropping down in class she must overcome a difficult parking lot post, Kent Desormeaux is riding hot

Long Shot–   9 Siena Silk –

Best Bet – 8 Rowangoeshollywood (race 10)
