Sunday (8-15-10) Del Mar Recap
Both surfaces seemed to play fair.
Hat trick for Joel Rosario. Doug O’Neill and Jenine Sahadi both saddled two winners on the day.
Wasted Tears (8th race) controlled the pace and just held off a game Lilly Fa Pootz in the Grade 2 John C Mabee for filly and mare turf routers. The consistent Gotta Have Her was another 1/2 length back in 3rd.
On the ticket front I ended up with three Primary (Galleta Monstruo, Spaniard, Wasted Tears) and one Secondary (Genio) winner on Sunday. For the record, I landed the place with a pair of Primary contenders in the other two legs. The dreaded 4 of 6 with a pair of 2nds – yuck!
