Friday Del Mar Recap – July 20
A pair of Polytrack sprint wire jobs to end the program. Stalkers and closers best on turf.
Garrett Gomez and Corey Nakatani (turf) both booted home a pair. Trainer Doug O’Neill saddled three synthetic sprint winners on the card.
On the ticket front I tabbed one Primary (Blushing Martha) winner and three Secondary (Zanbo, Smart Ellis, Tilde) winners.
