Del Mar Friday: Mike Dennis has two picks, likes sweet old-timer in the 4th and Jessica Pyfer in the 9th
Two Play Mike - August 6, 2021
Del Mar Racing
Play 1 - Studly Perfection scratched.
Play 2 - Irish Wahine went off 25-1 and ran 4th after slowly breaking out of the gate. After playing catch up and closing to finish 4th the gallop out looked average. With a clean break though maybe a top 3 showing, I will consider for a playback.
Play 1 - Del Mar Race 4
F - CLM25000 - TURF - ONE MILE - 3 YO ^
#8 Sugary (6-1)
Overall closers have been having a good time going one mile on the Turf at Del Mar. In a race where there seems to be a few closing types my plan is to price shop.
The 8yo mare likes Del Mar, has had success at the distance and will sit a nice trip giving her first shot at finishing strong.
Play 2 - Del Mar Race 9
F - CLM16000 N2L - ONE MILE - 3 YO ^
#9 Katla (4-1)
Jessica Pyfer has shown she can ride with the CA colony and seems to do really well on the lead. Back to the dirt for Katla and a favorable pace set up going one mile. Unless pressured or an unexpected contentious front develops, the 4yo may be able to get a comfy lead.
