Friday Del Mar Recap – July 29
Edge to early-pressing types on Polytrack. A pair of flat mile turf wire jobs.
Hat trick for Martin Pedroza. Garrett Gomez and Joe Talamo both booted home a pair.
On the ticket front I tabbed one Primary (Gunshot Straight) winner and two Secondary (Jet Set Girl. Bourbon Bay) winners.
