Gear up for closing weekend at Del Mar with some help from Gino Buccola with some value picks on Friday:
2nd #5 Lady Lithesome (8-1) ML, $3,000 StableDuel
The first time starter has a dam that won twice on the turf. This barn has had good recent
success with their first time starters and this filly looks very live in this spot at a nice price.
5th Race #6 Hot Thirst Trap (12-1) ML, $750 StableDuel
In her debut she didn’t have the best of starts in gaka behind a gate to wire winner. Now she’ll
stretch out for a barn who’s much better with horses making their second start 21%. Her dam
was a multiple stakes winner going long on the turf so this should be where she’s best.
8th Race #8 Madiha (8-1) ML, $3,000 StableDuel
She tried longer on the turf in a stakes race last time out and she ran really well behind tough
company. Now she gets some class relief and she cuts back here, should be able to sit off
nicely and have some late punch.
