Del Mar Pick 6 – August 8
- Updated: August 7, 2010
Saturday (8-7-10) Del Mar Recap
A pair of 5.5 furlong Polytrack sprint wire jobs but it was hardly a speed brigade on Saturday. Patient runners best on turf (rail at 14 feet).
Mike Smith and Patrick Valenzuela both booted home a pair. Mike Mitchell saddled two winners on the day.
Win machine Zenyatta did her thing again in the Grade 1 Clement L Hirsch. I wonder where she goes for her final BC Classic prep?
On the pick six ticket front, I got home a pair of Primary (Where’s The Remote, Zenyatta) and two Secondary (Miss Peanut, Low Gear Power) winners on Saturday.

Del Mar Pick 6 (8-8-10)
Sunday’s pick six from Del Mar includes the Grade 2 Best Pal Stakes for 2-year-olds traveling six one one-half furlongs on Polytrack. J P’s Gusto is the 2-1 morning line favorite but is stuck down on the rail and will not offer much value. Western Mood could be sitting on ready in his 3rd career start and Sway Away looked good in his NoCal debut. The weather forecast calls for sunny skies with a high temperature of 66.
Degree of Difficulty: Moderate. On a scale of 1 to 10, the Sunday pick six from Del Mar rates a 5.
Possible Singles: Western Mood (8th race), Joe Carl (9th race)
