Thursday's 8th race (5:37pm PT) from Del Mar is an Optional Claiming affair for 3-year-olds and up traveling eleven furlongs on the turf course (rail at 6 feet).
#8 Street Maven (5-1)
has improved on turf since moving to the Doug O'Neill barn in March (3-2-1-0). He was clearly second best at 10f when last seen June 14 and the winner of that heat (Big Kick) returned to win the G2 San Juan Capistrano.
