Del Mar 8 | 8:40 pm ET G2 Best Pal for 2yo going 6-1/2 furlongs

STORY TO TELL is the morning line favorite for the Grade 2 Best Pal on Sunday at Del Mar, but the pick is going to be CONQUEST BIGLUCK E for trainer Mark Casse. CONQUEST BIGLUCK E won his debut by a half length in a very good performance after he spotted the field five lengths early then came running strong late. His sire, Lookin At Lucky, absolutely loved the Del Mar surface when he was a two-year-old winning the Best Pal and Grade 1 Futurity. Casse is due to have some luck this meet after five seconds and one third with 11 starters. STORY TO TELL has won two of three races to begin his career and with more ground in the Santa Anita Juvenile would be three-for-three. He drew the rail and that was a pretty good place to be on Saturday. The race should be pretty quick early and we will see which of the runners will want to go this far. BAD READ SANCHEZ, ROWDY DYLAN and SKYWAY all make for pace place. HENRY'S HOLIDAY is the upsetter as this distance looks to be most ideal for the son of Harlan's Holiday. He is 10-1 on the morning line and a must use in any trifecta or superfecta wager.
