Friday’s Del Mar Recap – July 18 (Day 3)
Edge to early-pressing types (4 sprint wire jobs) on Polytrack. Tactical types captured all three turf races carded.
Hat tricks for leading rider Rafael Bejarano and Martin Garcia. Bob Baffert saddled three winners and Garcia rode two (Bejarano rode the other).
On the ticket front I tabbed three Primary (Hard Buns, Surfcup, Sprouts) winners and one Secondary (My Slew) winner. I’ve been alive for five going into the final race each day (got 5 on Thursday).
