Superfecta Sunday Near the Surf

On this Superfecta Sunday we peer in on the West Coast for a dazzling graded stakes race where the Turf meets the Surf.

Del Mar Thoroughbred Club Race 9 {Eddie Read~G2~1 1/8 mile~TURF~3 year-old Up~Graded Stakes}

A lively group of nine will hit the Turf in this annual affair. There is enough speed to keep an honest pace. Speed numbers are fairly close making it a competitive event. Any one of them could pull off the victory. Our task is to string together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket. Today we will scale up to level four for our Bronze Horseshoe selection.

#1 Ashelyluvssugar (Stevens / Eurton) should sweeten the deal with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three stout workouts. He should track the pace closely seeking to strike in the stretch. This guy is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$4 SHOW.

#2 Flamboyant [FR] (Prat / Gallagher) is coming off a modest layoff after traveling to Dubai, [UAE] to capture a bit of coin finishing fifth in the Dubai Turf. He holds the highest speed number at this distance and has put in four superb peaking workouts. He should track and close efficiently.

#6 Finnegans Wake (T. Baze / Miller) should contend with a suitable pace. He holds a couple of nice last out performances, a three race progression, and three strong peaking workouts. This veteran millionaire should be closing gallantly in the stretch.

#8 Patentar [FR] (A. Quinonez / Callaghan) could surprise with a couple of good last out speed numbers, a three race progression, and three hearty workouts. He should be part of the tracking crew that loves this distance.

10 CENT Superfecta Box ($2.40)
