2016 Bob Hope Stakes Entries at Del Mar Race Track

Mastery 4-5 - highly regarded colt has just one career start for trainer Bob Baffert and it was an impressive one - an overwhelming 4 1/4 length maiden score in a six furlong race at Santa Anita October 22. He steps up looking to make it two-for-two to start his career - from post 3 with Mike Smith aboard the intriguing morning line favorite.

California Diamond 8-5 - impressive Peter Miller trained colt has placed in all seven career starts - five wins and two runner-up finishes. He makes his graded stakes debut on a mice three race win streak - the minor Golden Gate Juvenile last time out at Santa Anita November 5, the minor Speakeasy Stakes on that track October 16 and the minor Barretts Juvenile at Los Alamitos in September. He also won the minor Santa Anita Juvenile in July. California Diamond is by far the most accomplished entry in the field and steps up in terrific form. Norberto Arroyo will be in the irons of the second betting choice from the outside post 5.
