Del Mar Pick 4

Check out our Daily Free Pick 4 for the Del Mar Fall Meet Every Day Here!



The Friday card showed some of the chaos we expect from Del Mar with the Pick 5 paying $27k for the 50c bet as longshots galore romped home. There was also a single Pick 6 jackpot winner of $240k only three days in! Reddam Racing is off to a blistering start at Del Mar winning with 4 of 6 horses which is why we see trainer O’Neill at the top of the rankings and Gutierrez leading all jockeys. Trainer Hollendorfer is in 2nd. What is noteworthy is both these trainers were ice cold over the last few seasons here and now once red hot trainer Miller is on the icy end. As I have said before Del Mar is a streaky track – ride the streaks! One other trainer to watch is Brinkerhoof who is 2 of 3. My free Pick 4 costs $12 today but I have a longshot loaded Pick 4 bet for $72 on the website. The big scratch of Accelerate is going to juice the payouts today!


Each and every day I will have my FREE Late Pick 4 ticket posted on the Del Mar handicapping page. For my Pick 5, longshots and best bets as well as a more in-dept Pick 4 ticket click below to buy today’s full card!

Pick 4 I need a single in race 7, Accelerate. Has the highest speed in this race and has won 3 of the last 4. 1st start since May but has a series of sharp works so you cannot be faulted for singling here. Won this race last year but then lost the next two races at Del Mar. If he wins then the Pick4 ticket will be on the lower end (maybe unless some of our solid longshots win!) In my more in-dept ticket I am looking to beat this guy however! UPDATE – Accelerate scratched making our other plays in this race look even better!



Longshots of the Day:

Race 7: Catalina Cruiser is the “other” Sadler/Hronis horse who comes in undefeated and rises in class to this stakes race. Sadler/Hronis also race Curlin Rules in here so are they going to set the race up for Accelerate or is Catalina the real deal. She cost $370k and I am thinking they feel strongly enough that she can win


Today’s Pick 4 will cost $12 with horses listed in preference.







Horses listed in brackets are for added coverage if wanted and for exotics.

For races where I only have one or two selections I usually like to KEY the top choice  with the second choice and an outside for trifectas.


When I have three horses selected in a Pick 4 or Pick 5 consider them for Trifecta boxes and for superfecta boxes use the 3 selections with the highest priced horse with good form or top tier jockeys riding, especially if they give a price. Rolling Pick 3 and doubles using selections.
