Results, Del Mar Thursday Race 8 — won $180

1980detrDespite traffic problems in the lane, #10 Purse Luva easily ran by leader #11 Cardiff Giant to win impressively.

Jockey Victor Espinoza broke Purse Luva toward the rear of this 12-horse field, as #3 Action Call, #4 Gilligan and #6 Catch My Tale all dueled for the lead. Coming into the race, trainer Caesar Dominguez dropped Purse Luva in class from maiden $50,000 claimer for his second lifetime start and added blinkers.

As the field toiled in deep stretch, the inflection in race caller Trevor Denman’s seemed to indicate he believed first-time starter #11 Cardiff Giant’s two-length lead would hold. But Purse Luva found running room and came off the rail, which opened Denman’s eyes. He called out: “Now, out of nowhere, Purse Luva. And Purse Luva looking like he just jumped in at the eighth pole. Just goes right on by.”

Cardiff Giant, from the hot Peter Miller barn, was bet to 7-to-2 and ran well but his wide trip likely compromised his finish.

I bet $150 on three horses #10 Purse Luva, at 3/1; #3 Action Call, a 9/1 shot; and debuter #5 Haimish Hy, at 13/1. I collected $630, but only profited $180 after subtracting out the $450 in bets.

Thursday, Del Mar Race 8 — 5:30 pm post time

Maiden King conquers So. Cal. maiden races

Maiden King conquers So. Cal. maiden races

Maiden claiming $32,000, 5-1/2 furlongs, 2 yo fillies

Possible overlays                         Morning line

#2 Happy Hands                                 20/1
#3 Action Call                                      6/1
#5 Halmish Hy                                      8/1
#7 Zagora’s Pride                                 15/1
#10 Purse Luva                                    6/1
#11 Cardiff Giant                                  9/2

The gate appears full for this one with 14 fillies scheduled to made the 5-1/2 furlong trip.

The fastest demonstrated speed out of the gate goes to #3 Action Call, but she is trying maidens for the seventh time. Another contender is the Caesar Dominquez-trained #10 Purse Luva, who is dropping and adding blinkers for her second start and that’s a powerful one-two punch.

I won’t hesitate to bet many of the debuters in here if their prices are right. For various reasons, I like #2 Happy Hands, #5 Halmish Hy, #7 Zagora’s Pride and #11 Cardiff Giant.

I will bet $150 to win on #3 Action Call at 4/1 or more and $150 to win on #10 Purse Luva at 3/1 or better.

Also, I will place $150 wagers on any of these fillies at 10/1 to 19/1 only: #2 Happy Hands, #5 Halmish Hy, #7 Zagora’s Pride and #11 Cardiff Giant.
