Pick 4 I need a single: None today


Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: Topgaliant, Talamo rides this 8-1 horse instead of the Daddy-in-law horse he rode in the last two races. That horse picks up Bejarano and is the 7/2 second fav. Talamo rode that race great and the added distance looks perfect but why the switch?  I don’t bet Ellis horses if Talamo is not on. Drops in class today, nothing on paper but this angle. Also the #1 has no listed works in a month

Race 3: Unreal Deal, ships in from Texas with winning jockey for ship n win money, is 2-2-1 from 4 at distance, trainer is 26% beaten fav and in last race he stumbled at the start at this distance and still flew in the lane, also this horse has some serious speed! Has been training at Del Mar since opening week

Race 4: Eskimo Roses, Ruis is 33% 1st time starters, 33% debut maiden special weight and both those are with monster ROI’s so he hits with prices like this! Some nice works for this debut in a wide open race

Race 7: November Tale, Paddy is 32% 2nd off a layoff with a positive ROI, 19% 2nd time Lasix, 2nd start in the US and we get 20-1 in a wide open race. The 2nd fav in this race is another 2nd start Irish horse at 7/2, I’m using as well but all over this 20-1 similar horse!

Race 8: Beantown Boys, Hess/Desormeaux horse 1st race since winning in December here at Del Mar for 20% trainer, racing protected with some sharp works in recent weeks and 15-1


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 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.


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.”
