Del Mar: Scratches for opening day


Opening day has arrived, though the sunshine seems to be late. As of 11:30 a.m., conditions are cool with temperatures in the 60s and overcast skies.

There are three scratches for Wednesday's program, which begins at 2 p.m. In the fifth race, an optional claimer over 1 1-16 miles, the 2-1 morning-line favorite, In the Paint, is out.

In the ninth race, a $25,000 claimer, Spectacular Slew, will not start, leaving a field of eight.

In the 10th race, a maiden claimer over 5 1-2 furlongs Tiger Trysts is scratched.
