Yesterday all eyes were on Saratoga, and Will Take Charge got up in the shadow of the wire to win the Travers Stakes. Today is all about the “left-coast” and Del Mar holds center stage with some incredible racing. Here is a little taste of what the E-Z Win Forms have in store, and you will want to follow up with the entire card. So grab them up, and lets get ready for a big Sunday of Thoroughbred action!


Del Mar

The weather forecast calls for a high of 75 degrees and a 30% chance of rain.


Race #2 – O.C. $62,500 – 1 mile – 4:37 p.m. ET

#6 Magic Union (3-1) = Rafael Bejarano in the irons for John Sadler. This daughter of Dixie Union owns the “Dropping in Class and Layoff of 45 Days” icons. Her first effort on the polytrack, and she has been working well. It was 66 days ago for her last race at Churchill Downs, and she sports a Last Race Rating of 53, and a Composite Rating of 52. Three races back she dominated the O.C. company at CD, and looks to get back on target in here.

Race #5 – The Del Mar Mile Handicap – 1 mile on the turf – 6:11 p.m. ET

#4 – Obviously (3-5) = Joe Talamo gets the call for Mike Mitchell. In the last year they are winning 24% together. He owns the ” Monster Workout, Dropping in Class, and Layoff of 45 Days” icons. He sports a Last Race Rating of 63, and a Composite Rating 65. He is 12/13 ITM lifetime on the weeds, and is going for three-in-a-row


Race #11 – Mdn Sp Wt – 1 1/16 on the turf – 9:18 p.m. ET

#5 – Volkonsky (5-2) = Joe Talamo is the pilot, and this runner has been 3/3 ITM on the turf. His Last Race Racing is a 54+, and a Composite Rating of 52. The Turf Rating is a crisp 14.2, and sports the “Should Improve” icon. Talamo draws the rail, and his chances look pretty good to get the job done.


The weather calls for a 30% chance of rain, and you can always change your conditions by a “click” of the change of track condition tab. Be sure to check all of the tier levels, as the golden nuggets listed can light up the tote board. Grab up your E-Z Win Forms, and get ready. This day is stock loaded, and there may be some big price winners waiting for you in the E-Z Win Forms. Best of luck from Winning Ponies!
