Superfecta Sunday in Southern Cal

It is already Superfecta Sunday. Today we take a look at a nice claiming race on the TURF where it meets the surf.

Del Mar Race 4 {1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~Claiming}

An interesting field of eight will swagger to the gate. There is enough speed in her to maintain an honest pace. Speed figures nearly resemble one another. It is any horse's race. Our task is to string a group of four together for our 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#4 Sizzlin Joe (Bejarano /Hollendorfer) might get the pace he needs to run into. He will take up a tracking positon and shoot through the stretch. He holds the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three sensational peaking workouts. This guy is in fine form and should get the job done.

#7 Atomic Rule (Pereira / McCana) is coming down from Northern Cal to take on these fellow turfers. He holds the second highest last out speed number and has put in four strengthening workouts. This lad will be firing fresh from a brief layoff after a couple of last out wins. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Beast of Bourbon (Espinoza / Mclean) should take another step forward with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and two stamina producing workouts. He holds the highest speed number at this distance. This lad has the tactical speed to adapt to any pace scenario.

#6 Image of Joplin (Flores / Chew) could surprise with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and four superb, peaking workouts. He is making a double drop (stakes / distance) for this event after a modest layoff. Expect him to forwardly placed seeking to draw off from the leaders.
