Del Mar Race 1: Post: 12:30 PT
1-Whooping Jay (7/2)
Never worse than second in four career starts over the Del Mar grass course, classy gelding stretches out after a series of strong sprint tries and always has been just as effective rouing as he is sprinting. Drawn perfectly inside, the M. Glatt-trained speedster seems certain to inherit the role as the controlling speed and given that type of trip the son of Square Eddie should be hard to run down. Two bullet workouts since raced indicate he’s a sharp as ever.

2-Midnight Special (4-1)
A clever winner last month on turf at this five furlong trip at Golden Gate fields, the son of Vronsky moves up from $20,000 to $40,000 following a R. Hess, Jr., claim, switches to the barn’s “go to” rider K. Desormeaux and catches a field that surprisingly doesn’t have a whole lot of early speed signed on. Quick enough to be on or near the lead from the get-go, this hard-knocking gelding should have every chance to pay a quick dividend for his new connections while offering wagering value at or near his morning line of 4-1.
