Where the Turf Meets the Surf

Today I point my gaze westward to beautiful Del Mar, as they take things to the turf this weekend. Exciting editions of the La Jolla today and the John C. Mabee tomorrow, make the track where the turf meets the surf, the place to be the next few days. The two graded stakes offer different handicapping challenges, as the La Jolla will have a clear favorite, while the Mabee should offer a more wide open affair on the oddsboard.

Sidney's Candy was Candy to our eyes yesterday. What a Powerhouse performance. The way he outdueled Macias reminded me of Secretariat a bit.

In the Mabee I'm rooting for Gozzip Girl. She's had some luck recently and I'm hoping she'll turn it all around.

Thank you websterhm!

How good did Sidney's Candy look in his first try on turf? Makes you wonder if the BC Mile is in his future.
