A new week of racing begins today at Del Mar with a pick six carryover of $195k and the running of the G2 $200,000 Sorrento Stakes for 2-year-old fillies. The pick six looks competitive and I would not be surprised if we have another carryover.

Best Bet
Race 3
#4 Champion Risk: showed an improved effort in her second start when breaking her maiden over this track. She was claimed by new connections and shows a bullet 3-furlong workout since that last start. She showed good speed and I expect her to be in front again. She returns in a spot where she is not entered to be claimed and her competition doesn't seem to be too tough. I do expect #3, #5, and #10 to get bet so hopefully we can get the morning line odds of 2-1 on Champion Risk.

Price Play
Race 5
#10 Tuff Storm: will be making his poly track debut after racing three times on the turf. His last effort was a good one when he finished third beaten less than three lengths at today's distance. Turf runners seem to really take a liking to the main track and I think he will do just fine. He's coming off a small break since June and shows to maintenance workouts over this surface. I think he can get a good middle-pack trip in this group. He's 10-1 on the morning line.

G2 $200,000 Sorrento Stakes
Race 7
#2 Sunset Glow: no surprises here. She's the morning line favorite and i expect her to be heavily bet. No value in this race but this might be a "free square" in those pick six and pick four bets. She finished a good second at Royal Ascot in the Albany Stakes against a field of 20 runners. I think her experience will be key against this bunch.
I watch horses run around.
