I really like this colt. I first noticed him before he even started, stalking the 2 yr old works. Glad his strong works are translating to strong races.
Beholder is likely the one to beat, I'll try to have so fun and play against her though. Head and paper say she wins, heart wants Imperative to win. It's fun to see the lower claimers win big.
There are thousands upon thousands of horses bred for the distance, and bred to 'get better' that doesn't mean they will.
I will happily take Lovely Maria to win here, with Betty to finish somewhere in the money.
Good luck with that. I wouldn't put Curalina in the top 4.
I honestly don't see anyone but Lovely Maria winning this.
I don't know what happened with her after the oaks, but she obviously had a hiccup. Her work out say she is back to form though, I think she will run away with this race. I think she is very much the best 3 year old dirt filly.
Feathered while one of my favorites is obviously a turf filly, why she is entered his is slightly baffling.
I'll take change is interesting- but this is a BIG step up in class.
While Positively Royal positively did not lift a hoof, Banree &
Off The Tracks decided to show up for me. Both were impressive, glad to see Banree progress - I think she may be my early favorite.

This is a very interesting race. Positively Royal will probably remain the deserving favorite, but I am going to go with a long shot here. Banree really was impressive in her first race, and though she proved less than ready for her stakes debut, I think Ward has her ready now , and I am willing to give her another shot here. 1- Banree 2/3 (n/o) Positively Royal & Off The Tracks
This colt makes his debut at Del Mar on Saturday. He is one I am very interested in watching. Works are solid, breeding is good. Trying to pick 2 yr old maiden winners is a fools errand- but that's part of the fun.
I like what I have seen here so far, hope he does well..
I thought he might get the win. Glad to see him make a good comeback though.
