Wednesday’s Del Mar Late Pick 4 Tickets (7-22-15)

Sunday Del Mar Recap: July 19 (Winning Early Pick 3 Ticket)

Conditions started out good and firm but the weather deteriorated quickly. Sloppy (sealed) main track beginning with race 3 and the G2 San Clemente remained on turf (condition: good, won by late runner Prize Exhibit). Race 2 was a 5f turf sprint and was captured by a patient runner. All other turf races switched to the wet main track, which seemed to play fair.

Four wins for jockey Santiago Gonzalez. Flavien Prat booted home a pair. James Cassidy and  John Sadler both saddled two winners and Gonzalez was the pilot of choice for both trainers.

Sunday’s suggested Early Pick 3 tickets from Del Mar yielded two Primary winners (Sweet Profit, Codacious) and one Secondary winner (Toomanytomatoes). The winning 8-1-5 combination returned $121.80.
