Del Mar

DMR 8 (CTBA, CA-bred, 5.5f)
Primary – #1 BIG ANDY, #7 I’m So Anna
Secondary – #4 Righteously, #3 Reign of Fire
Wagers: #1 to win, Quinella 1-7, Trifecta 1-7/1-3-4-7/1-3-4-7

Comments: #1 Big Andy (5-1) gets the services of Prat and the maiden seems to fit with these. She crossed the line first and was taken down in her SA bow, and finished a good 2nd at DMR July 10. She earned an improved number last time. #7 I’m So Anna (8-5) followed up a troubled show finish in her GG bow with a sharp maiden win at LRC July 2. She is a strong repeat threat if she runs back to her last or improves a bit. #4 Righteously (6-1) showed marked improvement when she defeated Big Andy July 10. #3 Reign of Fire (6-1) was placed first through disqualification June 13. Mendez is a decent juvenile trainer and he might prefer this one because he scratched his other entrant #6 Love Wins.
