DEL MAR, Calif. – Secret Thorn showed an ability to run well fresh when she captured her debut last summer at Del Mar, so trainer Dan Blacker is hoping she can do the same this summer at Del Mar when she returns from a long layoff on Thursday in race 6, an optional claimer for California-bred females going five furlongs on turf.
