Superfecta Sunday along the Pacific

Our horse racing weekend comes to a close as we gaze out towards the Pacific Ocean and enjoy one of the great races of the summer.

Del Mar Race 9 {Pacific Classic~G1~1 1/4 mile~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A smashing field of twelve will go to the gate in this annual summer grade one.  There is speed. Most of it coming from the outside posts which might set this one up for a horse coming from off the pace should it get out of control.  A great group of horses will battle gallantly.  Let's try to sew together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#10 Delegation (Contreras / Casse) comes in from Woodbine with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three sensational workouts.  He should be forwardly placed ready to rumble with three other speedy types.  He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#11 Game On Dude (M. Garcia / Baffert) should be the favorite with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and five superlative workouts.  This guy holds the highest speed number at the distance.  He should be in the forwardly placed group battling for advantage.

#9 Dullahan (Bejarano / Romans) will be taking advantage of any fast pace with a couple of o.k. last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and three superb workouts.  He enjoys the synthetic surface and holds the fourth highest speed number at the distance.  This guy should be closing swiftly.

#4 Farraaj [IRE] (Gomez / Varian) could be the big surprise coming off some very nice efforts across the pond in Great Britain.  He is two for two at this distance and should relish the polytrack surface.  Expect him to have a nice tracking run.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#10 Delegation  +  #11 Game On Dude  +  #9 Dullahan  +  #4 Farraaj [IRE].
