Friday’s 7th race from Del Mar is the $75,000 Kathryn Crosby Stakes for fillies and mares traveling one mile on the turf course (Post Time - 6:34 p.m. ET).

#3 POSTER GIRL (3-1) exits a sharp optional claiming turf route victory at Santa Anita, and Bill Spawr claimed her for $62.5k. I like the confident placement, and she projects a stalking trip under her winning rider Tiago Pereira.

#9 Excellent Sunset (5-2) could not go a mile and a quarter vs. grade one foes Sept. 28. This is a much better spot, she likes this distance, and Flavien Prat takes the call. She crossed the line first in this event last year but was placed 2nd through disqualification.

#7 Super Patriot (3-1) was an okay turf performer for Bob Baffert, and she has elevated her game since Richard Baltas claimed her for $35k June 8. She won her last three local turf routes and might be able to tag these under Geovanni Franco.

#1 La Sardane (6-1) is not in great form, but I can see her moving forward in her second start after a layoff. She was pretty good winning three races from May 3 through June 30, 2018. She has not done much in five starts since. Flavien Prat was her winning rider last year but he shows up on the morning line favorite in this spot.
