Ten Set for Pat O'Brien

Del Mar logo

Trainer Jeff Bonde is hoping his ultra-speedy Smiling Tiger can parlay a solid victory in Del Mar's Grade I Bing Crosby Stakes at 6 furlongs into another Grade I win Saturday, this time in the Pat O'Brien Stakes at 7 furlongs on the main track.

 

Ten will go to the post.

 

Smiling Tiger made the most of a poor start by Cost of Freedom to make the lead in the Crosby and go gate to wire in the sprint. Also coming out of that race is E Z's Gentleman, who finished third and by virtue of a win in Hollywood Park's Grade I Triple Bend Stakes will pack high weight of 123 pounds.

 

Also carrying 123 pounds will be New Bay, who finished fifth in the Triple Bend and was claimed in his last race by A.C. Avila.

 

Here's the field, from the rail, with weights and riders: Sangaree, 119, Martin Pedroza; E Z's Gentleman, 123, Martin Garcia; Tropic Storm, 119, David Flores; Kanan Dume, 119, Kerwin John; Leaving New York, 116, Patrick Valenzuela; Crown of Thorns, 119, Rafael Bejarano; Hard Bill, 119, Garrett Gomez; Smiling Tiger, 120, Victor Espinoza; New Bay, 123, Brice Blanc, and El Brujo, 119, Joel Rosario.
