race 7   25 September 2020   7-1 exacta paid $14.80

1  Wildman Jack   two giant efforts in his last race and his race 3 back......he broke the track record in his race three back which was at today's 5 1/2 furlongs on the grass at SA......and in his latest race he ran out of his mind to finish a 1 1/2L beaten 4th in a Grade 1 on the dirt at Dmr.......he raced 4 wide on the turn pressing a brutal pace especially considering his wide position........solid a.m. preparation for one of the better individuals in the O'Neill barn

7  Big Runnuer   a perfect 3 for 3 racing on firm turf at SA at today's 5 1/2 furlong distance.......and this afternoon he gets a more accomplished rider on the grass than he had in his aforementioned 3 wins......should be a major player

6  El Tigre Terrible   extremely game in the late stages of a race and his lifetime best was run the only time he has competed at today's 5 1/2 furlong distance........away since the last day of July but he has put in a strong looking series of 5 works

3  Mr Vargas

 

race 2 7 Sept 2020: box of top 4 picks (4th, top, 2nd, 3rd pick) paid a superfecta of $1,591.80

4  Mickelson   lone race was way back in June of 2019 and it was a decent MSW race and for a trainer in Desormeaux that usually doesn't have them fully cranked for their debut........returns in the Baffert barn and so he is likely fully cranked this time around........so Mickelson will likely be firing below par today

9  Defense Wins   another laid up individual (returns as a 1st time gelding) who looks ready to roll fresh off of the bench just as he was in his MSW debut........all three lifetime races at Del Mar fit well vs today's foes.......mostly placed as 2nd choice as O'Neill's go to guy is not exactly Cedillo (1 for 23 over the last 2 months)

1  Keystone Field   another 1st time gelding and yet another racing off of a layoff.........in fact this Mandella gelding raced once in 2017 and once in 2019......so.......one would surmise that he will be fully fit and ready as it might be a very long time before he can race again

2  Cem Sultan

3  Malibu Dreamin
