07-24-2022 Del Mar Full Card

My Pick 5 is rather large today but it’s a very tough card that when the value plays hit it will pay big! If you are on track today I will be the guest on the “Sunday Handicapping Seminar” with Frank Scatoni at 1pm at the Seaside Terrace so stop by and say hi!

Value Plays of the Day:

Race 2: Cribbage Board – 2nd time Lasix with speed this horse should be the favorite not 10-1!Peligroso is the 9-2 fav – that is how crazy this race is! Ships in for the bonus money.

Race 3: Bottle of Smoke won 2 of the last 3 and JJ hops on at 8-1

Race 4: Top Gun Classic– nothing on paper but has experience and a NAME for Del Mar at a crazy price.

Race 6: Gold Phoenix  – I own a piece of Gold.Training FANTASTIC – this is the prep race for the Grade 2 Del Mar Handicap on Pacific Classic day. We want to sit back 2-3 horses back and pounce into the turn using that tactical speed for the win.

Race 8: Dean Martini is my price play cutting back today after running 4th going a mile ¾. Should be super fit and I like this switch to Edwin.

Race 10: Me And Mr. C – well the name at 12-1 I HAVE to use! Ships in from Gulfstream this closer is going to have pace to run at today.

Race 11: Annies Song gets in 7 pounds lite and at THIS distance that could be key.This horse should be closer to 4-1/ the favorite! Has sharp early speed AND a closing kick.

Typos happen and I do my best not to make them. Always read through my writeups to make sure the posted numbers are correct. I list Pick 4, Pick 5 selections and also a listing of all plays for each race. If there are any differences, please let me know.

*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.”
