07-26-2019 Del Mar Full Card Friday

Will be posted by 10am

Friday 4 o’ clock racing again and if you are onsite at Del Mar stop by the Newcomers Seminar 1 hour before the 1st post!

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.

UNION TRIBUNE VALUE PLAY OF THE DAY:

Seventh race. No. 11. Smokey Image (15-1)

Smokey Image is 15-1 morning line and Flavian Prat is riding in this stakes race where he had many options. Automatically I am intrigued. Prat rode this horse last month in a stakes race on dirt, the 1st start in a year in what looks to have been a prep race for here. They move back to turf today and given Prat has chosen to ride again tells me this could be a very live horse at a big price. Trainer Carla Gaines adds blinkers today but the interesting stat for me is that she is winning 21% 2nd start off the layoff like we see today on this horse. This is where she excels this year. The seventh race is the most wide open race on today’s card so we are shopping for value. My full card is free to all Union Tribune readers today. Just head over to my website and click on Del Mar.

Pick 4/5 I need a single is race 6 Hypersonic who is risked for a claim today for $20k shipping in for the ship and win bonus money.  There is no speed in here and they put go fast early jockey Maldonado on board. Gate to wire at a fantastic 7/2 price.

Longshots of the Day:

Race 7: Smokey Image is 15-1 morning line and Flavian Prat is riding. Automatically I am intrigued. Prat rode this horse last month in a stakes race on dirt, the 1st start in a year in what looks to have been a prep race for here. They move back to turf today and given Prat has chosen to ride again tells me this could be a very live horse at a big price. Trainer Carla Gaines adds blinkers today but the interesting stat for me is that she is winning 21% 2nd start off the layoff like we see today on this horse.

Race 8: Victory Ice ships in from Arizona Downs for “ship n win” money and looks VERY live at a price. Ran 2nd last out going 6 furlongs closing late and the added distance looks ideal today. We get a best of day workout, obvious claim bait but with the extra bonus money you know they placed for it. Trainer is 32% when her horse is a beaten favorite. The price and works are too good to ignore at this big price

*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.”
