A Pleasant Superfecta Sunday

On to the West coast for a competitive Turf mile in pleasant Southern California.

Del Mar Race 8 {Matriarch~G1~1 mile~TURF~3 year old~fillies/mares~Graded Stakes}
A high quality field of seven ladies will take to the grass in this annual contest. There is parity among them. Any one of these grand dames could take this race. There is enough speed to keep a spritely pace. The speed numbers are very close to one another. Our task is to weave together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta ticket.

#5 Discreet Marq (I. Ortiz / Clement) might have the edge with the highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and two strong workouts. She has scored a victory over this course and enjoys this distance. This gal should get first jump on the leader going into the stretch. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#3 La Tia (Rosario / De la Cerda) could capture this race on the front end with her speedy running style. She holds the third highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and four stellar workouts. She comes in from the East coast to challenge these West coast gals.

#2 Strathnaver [GB] (Bejarano / Motion) is a reliable one that will be closing late. She has the second highest last out speed number and a two race progression. She was last seen at Santa Anita were she ran well and should be well acclimated to the Southern California racing scene. This gal holds the highest speed number at the distance.

#1 Queen of the Sand [IRE] (Smith / Gallagher) should contend with a couple of good last out speed numbers and one solid workout. She holds a 100% in the money record at this distance from five starts. This gal will be closing swiftly.

The Rest of the Field

#8 Sheza Smoke Show (M. Garcia / Eurton) should be in the mix with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and three robust workouts. She could be forwardly placed for a maximum effort.  #7 Gender Agenda [GB] (Talamo / Gaines) will be in the hunt with a couple of good last out efforts and two hearty peaking workouts. She should be tracking the pace ready to pounce.  #4 Kadaya [IRE] has had almost a two year layoff and looks ready to get back at it with four endurance producing workouts. She is another closer that will be moving quickly in the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta ($3.20)
We will use all of these wagering interests on our 10 CENT Superfecta ticket.

#5 Discreet Marq, #3 La Tia  /  #5, #3, #2 Strathnaver [GB]  /  #5, #3, #2, #1 Queen of the Sand [IRE]  /  #5, #3, #2, #1, #8 Sheza Smoke Show, #7 Gender Agenda [GB], #4 Kadaya [IRE].
