We have 11 races again today but we have some big scratches with Uncle Chuck in race 2 and Mckenzie in race 10

LA Time Value Play:

Race 3: General Mathis won 1st time turf off a 3 month break at Gulfstream last month and was claimed by Kristin Mulhall and shipped out to Del Mar.  Today they add blinkers  and move the horse up in class. The key here is ‘Mathis is racing protected and racing for the ship and win bonus money so this horse, to me, appears very live at a great 8-1 value price. This trainer already has a win and a second from three starts at the meet and wins 21% shipping for a flat bet profit.

Value Plays for Today:

Race 1: Victors’s Show won last out under this jockey 1st start in a year on dirt. Today they jump in class

Race 3: Wyfire damn has 5 winner from 5, bullet work this week a nice backup value to the Baffert favorite

Race 5: Polar Wind has won 2 in a row under Roman for a trainer who is 5 of 15 this year and 2 of 3 at Del Mar 

Race 11: Nina En Fuego  – trainer is 4 of 7 debuting on turf and Rispoli switches here for a trainer he is winning 33% and who is 29% at the meet

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.”
