Thursday (8-19-10) Del Mar Recap
Horses within striking range (2 wire jobs) held the advantage on both surfaces.
Rafael Bejarano and Martin Garcia both booted home a pair.
Tough day to come up with winners as the pick six paid for four. On the ticket front I tabbed a pair of Primary (Alley Hondro, Emmy Darling) winners.

Del Mar Pick 6 – Aug 20
Friday’s pick six from Del Mar includes a carryover of more than $117,000. The feature race is the Sandy Blue Handicap for 3-year-old fillies traveling a flat mile on the turf. Morning line favorite Fortunia had everything go wrong versus local Graded turf rivals last time. She was competitive against the likes of Wasted Tears at Lone Star in May and could rebound in this softer spot.
Degree of Difficulty: Moderate. On a scale of 1 to 10, the Friday pick six from Del Mar rates a 6.5.
Possible Singles: Good Friday Gal (4th race)
