We came so close with the Pick 6 carryover yesterday... let's see if we can't take down the late Pick 4 today!

$.50 minimum Pick 4 starts with race 8 at 8:37 pm ET

Race 8 | OC 62k / N2X for 3&up going 6f (A) 2-Caminetto: training well for Baffert off the extended layoff 3-Guns Loaded: Autrey usually brings 'em in live & he did break his maiden here last year 5-Holy Lute: 2-for-2 on this synthetic 9-Diamond Bachelor: they scratched out of the Oceanside for this

Race 9 | G2 San Clemente for 3yo F going 1 mi. (T) 4-Diversy Harbor: yet to run a bad race 7-Sandiva: she's run behind some decent fillies in Europe 9-Morning Fix: been a totally different animal since they put her on the grass 3-back 10-Sheza Smoke Show: versatile speed doesn't need the lead & Talamo's riding great 12-My Conquestadory: a) I think she needed the race off the layoff last out; b) the rule may be Never Play Outside Speed on the Del Mar Turf, but if anyone can overcome it, it's this filly ~ she's got so much heart

I'm honest when I don't know what to do with a horse... 8-Istanford is that here: she's speed and the ability's there, but is she good enough to beat these? Also 2-Tepin will get back to the winner's circle one of these days ~ I just don't know if it's today.

Race 10 | Claiming (20-18) for 3&up going 1 mi. (A) 3-Dress Code: training lights out for Diodoro off the claim-back 5-Usbeck Thunder: Avila came to play this meet 9-Mind the Master: slight class relief

Race 11 | MSW for 3&up F&M going 1 mi. (T) 1-Freethinker: last time the Oliver family shipped west, they won/ran 2nd with everything at boxcar prices 3-Burning Arch: overmatched last out 5-Garnished Wages: training lights out for Kruljac 9-Sweet as a Rose: always around at the wire 12-Star Act: too beautifully bred to not be a multiple winner already

That makes the big ticket... 2,3,5,9 / 4,7,9,10,12 / 3,5,9 / 1,3,5,9,12 ... $150 total

If you're playing on more of a budget, let's try... 2,5,9 / 4,9,10,12 / 3,5,9 / 5,9 ... $36 total
