08-12-2017 Del Mar Full Card

UPDATE: Using 3,2,5 in race 7

2,7,4, in race 10


A great start to the Pick 5 yesterday with our Miyadi longshot winning at 9-1 but as has been the case the entire meet so far our odds on single ran second and that’s all she wrote. In the late Pick 4 I was right in not singling the Baffert odds on horse who ran 4th but even having 3 in the race including the “other” Baffert again resulted in no dice. We have that same situation again in the Late Pick 4 today. Let’s see if I can get some Birthday luck like we did last year at Del Mar this weekend! I am doing my normal Pick 4 and Pick 5 bets today!



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





Race 2 is won by the favorite 55% of the time and a horse prices under 5-1 has won 85% of races from a large sample


Pick 4 I need a single: None today


Longshots of the Day:

Race 8: Ready To Roc, the other 1st time Irish horse, 1st start since last September, adds Lasix, gelded, raced in graded races in Ireland against some biggies and you all know my biased opinion on how much better Euro turfers are! I use them at any price, bigger the better!

Race 9: Dia de Pago, betting says a 2 horse race but these types of races have brought carnage this season, Nakatani rides a horse that won his debut back East, adds Lasix, sharp work and jockey is 26% and Cerin is the trainer for the Wilsons who were on fire opening week


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40.50 with horses listed in preference.

3,8,5 (2,9)

1,7,10 (3)





Today’s Pick 5 will cost $54 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.
