I'm going to bet the longer-priced Baffert. Best I can do with this interesting bunch. :)

Some combination of Soul Streit & Tatters to Riches... otherwise, no idea. :mrgreen:

ETA: oh wait, I'll throw in Bolt d'Oro too.

Soul Streit is the most impressive 2yo I have seen this season. I think he wins it over Zatter in a Baffert 1-2

dia de pago would be a 2x winner if they hadn't had him so far back both times. i think he needs mid pack or so. hell of a turn of foot.

It was nice to see both Bolt and the Hopeful winner with very nice distance pedigrees. Both of these 2 yos should be in the classics picture come next year provided they stay sound/healthy. And the Hopeful winner, Sporting Chance, has that 80+ year old trainer who looked as though he'd just won his first big, graded stakes after today's victory.

Bolt d'Oro Wears Down Zatter to Win Del Mar Futurity

In its two years of operation, Ruis Racing has done its best work during the summer at Del Mar.

In 2016 Union Strike took the Del Mar Debutante (G1) in her second start, and in 2017 Bolt d'Oro provided owner/trainer Mick Ruis another top-level juvenile win in the $300,000 Del Mar Futurity (G1) Sept. 4.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I thought the name Ruis sounded familiar, didn't know he was training now. They've certainly had some good luck at Del Mar!

He was originally a trainer which is why he was supportive of his daughter but then they split from what I recall.

It may be worth noting that Zatter came back on 15 days' rest (and St Patrick's Day on 13!) which isn't ideal these days, but Baffert presumably had the Frontrunner in mind for both and had to go for it. Bolt d'Oro had 4 weeks and a day IIRC. As soon as I took a good look at Run Away in the paddock and saw that chunky engine, I thought "sprinter!" I wouldn't count on him going on--not that every horse has to be a classicist.

Ah... didn't know he trained before. I just thought he was a very very very supportive non-horsey dad who helped get Shelbe's business off the ground. The whole split between them was bizarre/unfortunate.

I think he was the trainer all along, it was just her name in the program.

you could be right, I remember being under the impression that the reasons for the split were "professional differences" i.e. Shelbe wanting to do her own thing, while her father kept trying to control everything.
