Thursday's 4th race (3:40pm PT) from Del Mar is a $16,000 claiming affair for fillies and mares which have never won two races. They will be dashing six furlongs on Polytrack.
#8 Vindicated Ruler (7-2) ran well in all four Maiden NoCal sprints and graduated when dropped in for a tag off a layoff at Santa Rosa Aug. 4. Morey excels first off the claim and leading rider Bejarano is 2-for-7 with this outfit recently.

#7 Disco Lemonade (5-1) graduated in a BHP synthetic sprint for O'Neill July 5 and was claimed out of that heat by profitable, high % trainer Bonde. She owns early-pressing versatility.
#9 Serious (4-1) won her local Polytrack sprint bow last summer and has not raced on synthetic since. She is back in for a tag and will probably flash speed.
#3 Twirlybird (10-1) was nabbed out of her last by Baltas (2 wins Wed.) and aggressive pilot Maldonado hops abaord. She removes the hood and figures in the hunt throughout.
