Del Mar - Race 4:  Post: 2:03 PT

2-Essential Wager (8/5)

Talented 2-year-old colt was unlucky in his recent debut at Santa Anita, winding up an admirable second with a strong speed figure after stumbling at the start, rushing up inside to make the pace and then understandably weakening late. The B. Baffert barn hits with a powerful 26% with second time starters, so with two very sharp drills since raced the son of Honor Code looks ready to graduate. 

Del Mar - Race 6:  Post: 3:03 PT

11-Chollima (5/2)

Claimed in five of her last six starts and back in the barn of trainer S. Knapp, who won with her at Del Mar during the summer meeting, the daughter of Paddy O’Prado has the route-to-sprint angle that we like while being reunited with “win rider” A. Cedillo. First or second in nine of 13 career starts and a two-time winner over the local main track, she’s well-spotted to return to winning form at a reasonable 5/2 on the morning line.
