Thursday Del Mar Recap – August 2
Early-pressing types (Polytrack) performed better as the day wore on. The lone turf race carded (one mile) was nabbed in wire job fashion (rail at 7 feet).
Five wins for jockey Joe Talamo. Trainer Mike Puype saddled two winners on the afternoon.
On the ticket front I tabbed four Primary (Bella Viaggia, Monument, Obviously, Northern Iowa).
