08-11-2017 Del Mar Friday

The rails are at 24 feet on turf today again favoring front runners. Racing also begins at 4pm today. It has been an extremely tough card so far in the meet for small ticket players including some crazy results! We have a good mix of favorites along with a stand in race 3 today to give us a great chance at putting some coin in the bank!



Today’s Full Card is only $8. Buy Sunday get Wednesday FREE!







Pick 4 I need a single: None today


Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: Psycho Dar, Roman rides for Miyadi on a 12-1 debut horse and they win 33%, 67% in the money. We hit on a number of this tandem’s longshots at Santa Anita

Race 4: Lord of Chaos, won both starts last summer at Del Mar, dropping in class 2nd start off the layoff for a 24% trainer we get 12-1 for a potent Del Mar tandem last year

Race 6: Phantom Proton, Prat rides for Drysdale we get 6-1 or more and this tandem wins when they aren’t supposed to and in this race there is a Smith/Baffert likely odds on fav (and they have done poorly thus far), adds Lasix off the bench after 10 months


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.








Today’s Pick 5 will cost $24 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.
