Aqueduct Sixth Race – Post Time: 2:15 ET
5-Palamos-GB (9/2)

Was given an educational run in her debut at Keeneland last month and did well to finish third after breaking slowly and then being allowed to finish on her own courage in a fast, highly-rated race for maiden fillies. The 3-year-old daughter of Blame should be much more serious today with that bit of experience behind her, so at 3-1 on the morning line the G. Motion-trained sophomore offers excellent wagering value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.

Del Mar Eighth Race – Post Time: 4:00 PT
5-Theluteismine (2-1)

Barn excels with second-time starters (30% with a massive flat-bet profit) so we’re expecting this P. Miller-trained gelding to produce a significant forward move in this five furlong grass sprint for 2-year-olds. Didn’t get the best of runs when finishing a respectable fifth over a mile at Santa Anita in September but has trained well since, switches to F. Prat, and can be along in time with good racing luck.
