Wednesday's 8th race (5:35pm PT) from Del Mar is the $90,000 Wickerr
Stakes for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf course (rail at 6 feet).
#3 Te Rapa (5-1)
likes the local green (7-4-0-2) and exits a rallying show finish off a 4+ month vacation. Mike Smith sticks and he gets pace to chase in the paper race.

#4 Bright Thought (3-1)
is fresh, training well, and reunites with his favorite pilot Bejarano. He drops out of the graded ranks and should make his presence felt throughout.
#5 No Jet Lag
(7-2) runs well off the bench and scored in his U.S. debut at this course-distance last year under today's pilot Nakatani.
#6 Safety Belt (5-1) beat my top choice at Santa Anita June 21 and Talamo has options with the versatile sort.
$12 to win #3
$12 Quinella 3-4
$1 Trifecta key 3 over 4, 5, 6 ($6)
