We are heading into the homestretch on the Del Mar meeting as the Kentucky Derby gets ready for its Labor Day weekend race. So, a little change in the newsletter. Next week, we will have one every day, even with no Del Mar racing for a couple of days, just to keep you up on the Derby. They will probably be much shorter, which may be a relief for you and certainly make my terrific editors ecstatic.
I will not be in Louisville this year for the first time in a few years. The reasons are obvious, but the biggest one is that firsthand access to trainers, jockeys and owners is almost nonexistent and most original reporting would be done by phone. I can do that from home. For the record, I think that is the smart move by the track. This is a year unlike any other in our lifetimes, so, in my mind, I would shy away from making things as normal as possible.
OK, with that said, here is some of the information that Churchill Downs and Del Mar publicity brought to everyone’s attention.
It’s looks as if there will be no more than 18 starters in this year’s Derby. Here’s the list: Tiz the Law (jockey Manny Franco); Authentic (John Velazquez); Art Collector (Brian Hernandez Jr.); Honor A. P. (Mike Smith); Ny Traffic (Paco Lopez); King Guillermo (Samy Camacho); Thousand Words (Florent Geroux); Max Player (Ricardo Santana Jr.); Enforceable (Adam Beschizza); Major Fed (James Graham); Storm the Court (Julien Leparoux); Attachment Rate (Joe Talamo); Sole Volante (Luca Panici); Finnick the Fierce (Martin Garcia); Winning Impression (Joe Rocco Jr.); Necker Island (Miguel Mena); Money Moves (Javier Castellano).
Possible: Rushie (TBA).
Here are some tidbits from Saturday.
— Tiz the Law, the presumptive favorite, had a five-furlong work at Saratoga on Saturday in :59.21. “Everything went fine,” trainer Barclay Tagg said. “He came back well. It may have been a little faster than he needed to go but the track was very fast, too. It went perfect, he’s a pleasure to train.”
— Honor A.P. did his final prep at Del Mar and went seven furlongs in 1:27.20 with a one-mile gallop out at 1:40.60. “I just wanted an easy seven eighths,” trainer John Shirreffs said. “He got it. We’re good to go. Now we just need a bit of luck. You need some of that in that race.”
— In other Del Mar works, Storm the Court went six furlongs in 1:12.80 and Thousand Words went five furlongs in :59.80. “He’s one of these horses that is just steady,” said Bob Baffert, Thousand Words’ trainer. “He’s just a steady kind of horse. I think he’ll be a threat. Both of them, Authentic and him, they’re threats. When you see a horse like Tiz the Law, he looks like right now he’ll be so tough to beat, but I’m happy right now the way they’re coming in. They’re coming in the right way and that’s all you can ask for right now.”
— Shirl’s Speight is skipping the Derby because of a cough. “He’s coughing and full of mucus so we’ve had to put him on antibiotics,” said trainer Roger Attfield. “I’ve had four or five of them [get sick] these last couple weeks actually. It’s nothing majorly serious but it’s bad timing. We were looking forward to seeing if we could do something fancy but there will be another day. Just normal stuff we have to go through quite often.”

Del Mar review
Saturday’s feature was the Grade 2 $150,000 Pat O’Brien Stakes for horses going seven furlongs. It was also a “Win and You’re In” race for the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile. New morning-line maker John Lies had C Z Rocket at 4-1 but the betting public saw him better, sending him off at near even-money.
The 6-year-old gelding settled nicely off Law Abidin Citizen then cruised into action in the stretch to win by half a length. C Z Rocket paid $4.20, $2.60 and 2.20. Flagstaff was second, followed by Law Abidin Citizen, Blameitonthelaw, Giant Expectations, Manhattan Up and P R Radio Star.
Here’s what the winning connections had to say.
Peter Miller (winning trainer): “He broke well and usually he doesn’t. The pace was slow and [jockey] Flavien [Prat] had him in the perfect spot. [Owner] Tom Kagele actually called me [about claiming the horse] and I said, ‘His form is bad right now, but he’s a runner.’ You could see he had run some really fast races. I like old class horses that have shown talent. If you can get them going in the right direction they can run back to past form. Tom claimed him and the rest is history.”
Flavien Prat (winning jockey): “We saw that he’d been breaking slow in his races, so we were prepared for that. But he broke well [Saturday] and we were right in the race. Then the pace wasn’t that fast, so we were right there. When I asked him, he was good. He’s a willing horse.”
Del Mar preview
Remember, Sunday’s card is not the last of the racing week. There is a COVID makeup card on Monday. But as for Sunday’s 11-race card starting at 2 p.m., it’s pretty average. Del Mar Sunday cards are not horrible, while Sunday cards at Santa Anita can be pretty bad. But they do race what seems to be 100 weeks a year. (Yes, I know that’s not possible.) In case you care, last race is at 7:08 p.m. with a 7:16 p.m. sunset.
There is a Cal-bred stakes as the feature, the $100,000 Generous Portion Stakes for 2-year-old fillies. I’m So Anna is the 5-2 favorite for trainer Steve Sherman and jockey Ricardo Gonzalez. She is coming off a four-length win in her last start on July 2 at Los Alamitos. In her first race, she finished third at 4 ½ furlongs at Golden Gate.
Second favorite in the seven-horse race, at 3-1, is Governor Goteven for Lisa Bernard and Tiago Pereira. She has won her two starts, neck win on May 29 at Santa Anita and by 3 ½ lengths on Aug. 1 at Del Mar. Post is around 6:38 p.m.
Here are the field sizes, in order: 7, 7, 7, 8, 10, 8, 8, 11, 9, 7, 11.
Bob Ike’s Dmr pick of the day
ELEVENTH RACE: No. 8 Disappearing Act (8-1)
Newcomer from the Richard Baltas stable sprinted twice at Woodbine as a 2-year-old and now makes her SoCal debut going in this 1 1/16 maiden event on turf. The work tab at San Luis Rey Downs looks solid, she lands Abel Cedillo and may have tactical speed in a race that doesn’t have much. Looks like a shot at a price in a wide-open heat.
Saturday’s result: Avenue de France (16-1) went off as the longest shot in the race, lagged early and trailed into stretch, lugged in for a step at 1/8th, then finished solidly before missing second by about a 1/2 length.

Ciaran Thornton’s Dmr pick of the day
FIFTH RACE: No. 3 Jungle Roar (5-1)
Jungle Roar ran fifth last out, the first time Umberto Rispoli rode. That race was five furlongs and saw the horse get steadied a little on the inside heading into the turn. Despite finishing off the board, Roar made a solid late move and was impressive on the gallop out, suggesting Sunday’s distance may be ideal. The horse drops in class, puts in a sharp work and Umberto stays. When I see races like we did prior from this jockey with late moves the next out ride is usually the money ride. A 5-1 price is a nice value.
Saturday’s result: Second off the layoff at 7-1 was just what the doctor ordered as Gregorian Chant under an excellent ride by Juan Hernandez surged late to win. ‘Chant paid $17.40 for the win.

Chris Wade’s LA pick of the day
FIRST RACE: No. 1 Thick Smoke (4-1)
She ships in for night racing after earning a strong figure on my charts in three of her four career starts and is easily the best in this mishmashed affair. The filly had her best figure over this racing surface on the daytime one-mile oval here on June 28. With my top numbers in her holster along with the move drop in class for a barn that’s a solid 26% with entrants of this ilk, this filly could and should be a contender for all the board placings at a medium mutual.
