Wednesday Del Mar Pick 6 – August 17 (Day 21)
- Updated: August 17, 2011
Sunday Del Mar Recap – Aug 14 (day 20)
Polytrack played fair. Patient runners continue to enjoy success on turf.
Hat trick for Garrett Gomez included G2 John C. Mabee aboard Cozi Rosie. Mike Mitchell won three races and Joe Talamo rode two. Tom Proctor saddled two turf winners for Glen Hill Farm but lost Extensive via $80k claim to Vlad Cerin. Finally, John Sadler saddled a pair of winners on Sunday and Gomez rode both. Busy day for the jockey-trainer stats!
On the ticket front I tabbed two Primary (Gab Power, Cozi Rosie) winners and three Secondary (Quantity, Evita’s Sister, Half Dome Dude) winners.
