Wednesday's 7th race (5:05pm PT) from Del Mar is the $90,000 Green Flash for 3-year-olds and up dashing five furlongs on Polytrack.

#4 Wine Police (7-2) did not care for turf here July 18. He raced twice on Polytrack here last summer, an Optional Claiming win at 6f and a rallying 4th in the G2 Pat O'Brien at 7f. Trujillo and Miller click together and he can bounce back on the surface switch.

#2 Merit Man (3-1) desperately needed his last (even 4th) in the same turf sprint my top exits, and the place finisher from that heat came back to score here. He graduated in his 2012 Polytrack bow here at 5.5f. 

#5 Caracortado (2-1) has been plagued by foot problems and will wear bar shoes for this. The lightly raced 7yo gelding is 4-for-6 on all-weather footing and can inhale these on his best day. Bejarano rides him well.

The Plays:

$18 to win #4

$8 Quinella 2-4

$4 Quinella 4-5

Reality not emotion and added the experience of over 4 years has suggested that bar shoes and healthy feet do not go together. Simple as that, no hate no like no emotion.
Bar shoes. Every once in a while you get a Kinsale King or somebody that can win stakes with crappy feet, but having their feet held together with metal across the bottom would be no one's idea of ideal. plus, anyway, old, coming back from a very long time away, first race on the surface. The hill awaits the old guy.
Wine Police us looking a tad better,but not as pretty as he can be.
Ah, almost guys. Ran outta screams. Used up some on race 5 :)
I NEVER heard that before. Bar Shoe Hater? I might need an explanation..
* About Wine Police, and this may sound like "pretty-pony, girl talk", if his coat is gorgeously bright today, which it has not been for at least three races, he is worth a look. But, I had to say no, preliminarily. Went with speedies and that very good turf miler.
Field, ranked in order of early speed. 7)Oligarch 2 3)Mr. Sexy 3 2)Merit Man 4 7)Oligarch 5 4)Wine Police 7 2)Merit Man 8 2)Merit Man 9 6)No Jet Lag 4)Wine Police the one comes in at 11th
Before scratchs: #4, 1, 2, 5. Prefer speed at a price, #1 Remind mee (8/1). Good luck!!!
So YOUR probability of Wine Police winning is almost 50/50, he's 7/2 on the morning line, and you consider that a "waste of time"... that's stupifying.
probability=odds
"seeing as how Wine is almost even money NOW" >> what's this gibberish???
NEVER, I mean NEVER, bet a bar shod horse. Never did I say that enough?
Form wise, Wine Police has steadily retreated over its last 5 starts: NOT a good sign
contenders: seeing as how Wine is almost even money NOW, that bet should be a waste of time. BUT those having a shot here are 5 Caracortado 6 No Jet Lag 4 Wine Police 2 Merit Man 1 and 2 go out and then 5 6 come later 7 might take this field a long way as that one is quick from the gate...overall it looks a weak field to wager on.
1 Remind Mee, 2 Merit Man, 3 Mr Sexy, 6 No Jet Lag.
