Del Mar ToteboardToday could be a nice day for the left coast. I took a look at some races, and found some runners that need a look by you before going to the windows. Be sure to run them against the tier levels, and take it all into consideration.

Del Mar – Sunday

Race #1 – #6 ┬áStar Presence (4-1)

Martin Garcia in the irons for Baffert, and gets blinkers on today. Add in three solid works, and you may have an answer to put to work. A $450,000 sales purchase at Keeneland, and goes from 5 1/2 to a mile. Six wide last out, and if there is any better trip this time, I think we will see a good payoff.

Race #3 – #8 Channel Surf (7-2)

Corey Nakatani up for Eoin Harty. Faced better maidens last out, and this son of Fu Peg can get it done. Last race was a five wide effort, and if he cleans up the trip, I would not be surprised to see him get his picture taken.

Race #5 – #1 Kid Edward (2-1)

David Flores in the irons for James Cassidy (22%). 2/2 ITM at Del Mar, and comes off a three off the shelf action. I like the rail draw, and if you look at his last race, he faced the likes of Sidney’s Candy in the La Jolla. 1 1/16 to a 1 1/8 can help, and a runner finds the wire.

Race #7 – #3 Position A (5-1)

Mike Smith in the saddle for Bill Spawr. He is fresh off a claim, and that gets the barn a 20% win clip. 3/4 at the distance, and the new surroundings may help the cause. Smith should get his best, and may score at a price.

Good luck!
