July 17th, 2014

by Mel Daniels

Del Mar race 8 | 8:41 pm ET Oceanside for 3yo going 1 mi. (T)

13-Sammy Mandeville This 3yo colt will be making only his 4th career start today. In his maiden breaking race, he led early and chased bit off of the rail. He took the lead by the 1/8th pole and held on to the wire. Look for Doug O'Neill to have this boy ready to run a good race. He gets Rafael Bajarano back.

10-Texas Ryano This colt by Curlin has 2 wins in his 3 career starts. In his last start on June 13th, he was squeezed at the start and settled inside mid pack. He swung 3 wide into the lane and rallied for the win.

9-Enterprising He has had 7 career starts and has placed in 6 of those while winning 3. This Thomas Proctor trained colt has been very consistent and he has raced in tougher company then he will face today. In his last start, he went 3 wide into the 2nd turn and held on for 3rd. Adds jockey Mike Smith who will be riding in place of the injured Gary Stevens.

Long shot play: 4-Love Rules All

Picks: 9 - 10 - 13
