Del Mar // Race 7 // 8:00 PM ET // Grade 2 Del Mar Mile // 1 mile (turf)

#2 Hit the Road (5-2 ML)

Should sit right behind the speed of Neptune's Storm and Smooth Like Strait, and make one run, hopefully to the front in time. Win bet.


Del Mar // Race 10 // 9:30 PM ET // Grade 1 Pacific Classic // 1-1/14 miles

#4 Royal Ship (7-2 ML)

He wants the 10-furlong distance, something not all horses can handle. There's not a lot of speed in this race, so his ability to be tactical will come in handy. Win bet.
