Superfecta Sunday along the Pacific

On this Superfecta Sunday we go to where "The Turf Meets the Surf" in Southern California to look in on the youngsters competing to break their maiden.

Del Mar Race 4 {1 mile~2 year-old~Maiden Special Weight}

A nicely bred group of nine will hit the dirt in this featured Maiden race. Most are just learning the game an have yet to establish a clear-cut running style. There doesn't appear to be any speed, though a couple could be sent as a result. Only two have raced more than once and the field includes one first time starter. It should be a great race to watch and wager. Our task is to kneed together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#7 Urlacher (Graham / Harty) could come off as the odds on favorite with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three robust workouts. He could show a little speed as he tackles this group. In his three starts he has hit the board every time. As a son of Discreet Cat he could bear down on this group midway through the stretch. He is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#6 Uninvited (Espinoza / Baffert) will pose a mighty challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three strong peaking workouts. This lad has already covered this distance with an in the money performance. It is likely he will take up a tracking position close to the pace and launch into the stretch crashing the lead party.

#9 Sorryaboutnothing (Nakatani / O'Neill) should contend with the third highest last out speed number and two hearty workouts. He too could be tracking the pace ready to speed into the stretch without apologies.

#5 Police Escort (M. Garcia / Baffert) Set the doughnut aside this guy looks capable of joining this group in a tracking position. He holds a good last out speed number and has put in three arresting workouts. He should be a trooper among this rambunctious crew.
