Del Mar – Race 1 Post:  2 p.m. PT

1-Beautiful Temple (7/2)

Has the classic two-sprints-and-a-stretch-pattern and a pedigree that suggests she’ll improve significantly in this stretch out to a mile on turf for older maiden fillies and mares.  The daughter of Temple City has the benefit of the inside draw that she can utilize to gain a front-running trip, and with rising speed figures in a field without much pace the S. Ruis-trained sophomore represents offers value at or near her morning line of 7/2. 

Del Mar - Race 5:  Post: 4 p.m. PT

10-Lena’s Big Day (7/2)

Was given an educational run last month at Santa Anita in her sprint debut when never really being asked until the final furlong and then responding late to wind up a willing fourth, beaten less than three lengths.  The daughter of Mr. Big seems certain to step forward with that tightener behind her coupled with today’s stretch out to a mile. Her poor outside draw notwithstanding, she offers good gambling value at 7/2 on the morning line in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
