DEL MAR

POST-SCRATCHES

6th: MSW, 2yo, 6f (Must Pay $2 P6, P3, DD)

Like the SAR 7th, this is going to be a very productive group. There are highly anticipated firsters here like Honor A.P. (Honor Code/Hollywood Story), but they may need experience and added distance. Ginobili disappointed in debut for Slam Dunk, but recall that Baltas expected big things and it appears he’s benefitted from the outing. This is the opportunity to take the 12-1..

Exotics Use: #14 Hidden Message 8-1 2nd

10th: Pacific Classic (G1), 3+, 10f (X-C P5/Leg E, DD)

The more I looked at this race, the less I liked the obvious players with the 10f weighing heavily on my thoughts. Pavel? 8/0-1-2 at 10f.. War Story? 5/0-0-0 at the trip.. Quip? Distorted Humor out of an Indian Charlie mare and nowhere at the 9.5f in the Preakness.. Seeking the Soul has only tried the classic distance in the Dubai World Cup (8th), but he’s at least bred for the journey. I’m reaching for John Sadler who has been drilling his runners (Higher Power & Campaign) like Baffert with 1m gallop outs. Higher Power (Md’O out of Seattle Slew mare Alternate making him half to PIM Special winner Alternation) has been improving with age and may want every bit of a classic mile and a quarter. Campaign is by Curlin out of the Dynaformer mare (and Arch sister) Arania and has already won multiple times at 12f on turf and dirt. Tenfold misfired in the Travers, but proved out at the voyage winning the PIM Special 90 days ago and running a bang up 3rd in the Preakness last year..

8th: ALW/N1X, 3+, 6f (P5, G/S, P3, DD)

Harrowing start to the P5 with seemingly 7 of the 9 eligible for laurels. Pace looks moderate at first pass, but with Morning Breez & Dark N Cloudy adding goggles, it might get hot. Tough call..
