Sunday (8-8-10) Del Mar Recap
Polytrack seemed to play fair. A wire job and a stalker made up the two turf route winners (rail at 14 feet).
Hat trick for Rafael Bejarano. Patrick Valenzuela booted home a pair.
A key scratch (River Chapel) changed the pace complexion in the Grade 2 Best Pal and PVal aboard J P’s Gusto took full advantage in a wire job tally from the inside post. Sway Away rallied to finish a clear second and should continue to progress. Western Mood was forced to chase the pace and held the show. He seems best as a late-runner.
On the pick six ticket front, I could only muster one Primary (Valley Cat) and one Secondary (J P’s Gusto) winner on Sunday…boo!
