Happy Independence Day to everyone!

If you are going to Del Mar this summer be sure to stop by and say Hi. I will be hosting the Newcomers Seminar every Friday and Sunday inside the main gate.

My Del Mar Season Pass is on sale now for only $150 a 40% discount!

Pick 5 I need a single is in race 2 Young Hendrick from D’Amato with Garcia riding and they are 29%. Trainer is 28% beaten favorite, 20% 2nd off the layoff. Drops in class today.

Pick 4 I need a single is in race – none today

Longshots of the Day:

Race 4: Flying Flirt is a workout play. Check the 59 second 4 furlong work June 22 followed by another sharp work last week. Wide open race so I am swinging for a price

Race 8: Saints Paynter is another horse from trainer Andrew Lerner that races protected today. We have done very well with his protected allowance race horses in the last few weeks. Moves from turf to dirt for the second career race and Lerner is winning 33% doing this with a flat bet profit.  Dropping in class and racing protected today we also have a sharp work. These are the works I look for as the horse is not risked so the work is legit. 8-1 morning line is a fantastic value and with two Baffert horses racing we could get an even better price.

Today’s Race 6 Late Pick 4 will cost $32 singling with horses listed in preference.


3,2 (1)


5,2 (8)

Today’s Race 1 Early Pick 5 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference


3 (2)




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. 

Irish horse racing saying –

“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”

“The grace of God is found between the saddle and the ground.”
