Superfecta Sunday in the Sunshine

We go out West to where the sunshine glistens off the Pacific Coast.

Del Mar Race 10 {Pacific Classic~G1~1 1/4 mile~3 year old Up~Graded Stakes}
A top-notch crew of eleven will take to the poly in this great race.  There is enough speed and forwardly placed types in the race to keep the pace on track. There are a half dozen standouts and the balance continue to improve.  Our task is to sew together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#5 Game On Dude (M. Garcia / Baffert) is the proverbial horse to beat.  He holds the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number and has put in four sensational peaking workouts. This dude also holds the highest speed fig at the distance. He should be sitting on or near the lead.

#11 Shared Belief (Smith / Hollendorfer) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb peaking workouts. This guy is undefeated in five starts. He should be forwardly placed as he stretches out for this one.

#8 Toast of New York (Espinoza / Osborne) will be making his second North American start. He is a synthetic specialist with a 100% in the money record from four starts over it.  This lad has also notched a win at this distance in the UAE Derby earlier this year. He should be close to the pace ready to rumble. Our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#9 Clubhouse Ride (Talamo / Lewis) should also contend with the third highest last out speed number and three endurance producing workouts. This guy also holds the third highest speed number at the distance. With a solid pace, he should be closing hard.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)

#5 Game On Dude  +  #11 Shared Belief  +  #8 Toast of New York  +  #9 Clubhouse Ride.
