The train will take another trip out to Del Mar tomorrow. He needs to tan his pasty body. Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 5 ½ Furlongs. MC 20000
#3 Follow the Lute (4/1) – This 1st time starter is working well and the ones with experience in here are nothing special. When Van Dyke takes the mount for Yakteen, they’re usually live.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 40000n1x
#6 Hermaphrodite (5/2) – She’s working like she’s ready and she’ll be facing much weaker today than she did across the pond.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. G3 Bob Hope Stakes
*#4 Coastal Kid (15/1) – He won easy in his debut then made an early move into a hot pace last time while the jock lost the irons. He’s adding blinkers today and looks to get a good trip sitting just behind a hot pace. The Conductor will try to get him in the exacta at a monster price in a small field.
Race 9: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 57k
#2 Velvet (7/2) – This daughter of American Pharoah is working well for a strong work tab. Prat also takes the mount.
