Beholder tries males, installed as 5-2 Pacific Classic

Beholder (Henny Hughes), an impressive seven-length winner of the Clement L.
Hirsch (G1) on August 1, will make first attempt against males in Saturday’s $1

Pacific Classic (G1)
at Del Mar. The Richard Mandella-trained dual champion
will meet nine rivals and stretch out to 1 1/4 miles with regular rider Gary
Stevens. The outstanding five-year-old mare was made the 5-2 morning line

Her main rivals include stablemate Catch a Flight (Giant’s Causeway), who
recorded his third graded win in the last four starts when taking the July 25
San Diego (G2) earlier in the meet. The five-year-old loses Stevens and picks up
Flavien Prat. Bob Baffert has a pair of Grade 1 winners, Bayern (Offlee Wild)
and Hoppertunity (Any Given Saturday), and both are attempting to snap losing
streaks. Bayern has lost all three outings since leading wire to wire in the
Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) and Hoppertunity has dropped four straight.

Hard Aces (Hard Spun), who recorded his first graded tally with a 7-1 upset
in the Gold Cup at Santa Anita (G1), is also entered and Red Vine (Candy Ride)
invades from the East Coast off a runner-up in the Salvator Mile (G3).

Beholder has drawn post 9 and James Scully explains why he believes the
outside post is an advantage in a TwinSpires blog post.

  1. Why can’t anyone get ahold of you on the phone and why can you not buy any of the products for instance the scratch sheet we tried to purchase it for $1 and it won’t let us fix the problem please

  2. I must find a way to get the spreadsheets for the tracks you cover The weekly sheets are very good can I buy them or are they just gone ??

  3. It is clear to me you are not putting up the comments that are being submitted are you serious about this new site or is it just cost cutting ??

    • Hi, Robert,
      No cost cutting here. The new website was/is a significant investment, so we want it to be the best experience for our customers as well as give them the best chance to win at the races!
