Wednesday (8-18-10) Del Mar Recap
Horses within striking range fared best on both surfaces.
Joel Rosario and Mike Smith both booted home a pair.
California Flag won the Green Flash Handicap but did not go to the front as expected. He stalked, pounced, and won by a hard fought nose over Quick Enough and My Summer Slew.
I nailed the first five but could not seal the pick six deal on Wednesday. For the record, I tabbed four Primary (Full On, Cee’s Pryme, California Flag, Fund Raiser) and one Secondary (Winning Desire) winner.
