O for Del Mar

I remember a college hoop practice or two that my caring teammates would kid me that I was "Ohhh for Monday" or whatever day of the week it was on the rare occasion that I was having an off day shooting the rock. Well, 2007 Eclipse Award winning jock Garret Gomez is Oh for Del Mar through the opening weekend after 17 mounts. After deciding to stay out west for the Del Mar meet after spending his last two summers at the Spa, he is having a rough go of it on the quickened polytrack. Did I really just say "quickened polytrack?"

G-squared (17 0-4-3, 0%) is struggling big time after two tough stakes rides yesterday afternoon where he was on the favorite in the Fleet Treat S. on Spring Awakening,where he finished a disappointing fourth and on 4-1 Spring House in the Eddie Read Hcp (G1), where again he finished fourth. It's probably just a run of bad luck for the top jockey....he is up on two morning line favorites out of his three mounts today to try and break the jinx (Rapid Goose in the 3rd and Lady Schnapps in the 5th). His other mount, Mix in the 1st is a 5-1 ML entry. (Update: GoGo broke the string after finishing fifth with Mix and second with the Goose, finally following them up with a win by even money fav Lady Schnapps to get off the schneid!!)
