08-16-2017 Del Mar Full Card

Trainer Mark Glatt is one to keep on eye on in the coming days winning 21% and 53% in the money but 2 for 2 when he owns the horse. Desormeaux is a jockey to keep an eye on as well as he is starting to heat up here.


Today’s Full Card is only $8.




In race 2 Wild Versa from Miller picks up Prat and they are risking $7,500 in claiming money to pick up the extra 3 pounds in this claimer race today, dropping in class for trainer 29% on this, sharp workout, rail post is winning 18% if you need a single these connections are doing everything here to get the win


Pick 4 I need a single: None today


Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: Passionate Emotion, Glatt trainer trying turf for the 1st time and 1st race since November and they are risking for the claim today so they are in it to win and pay the bills, we also get a sharp work and Roman jumps on and he is 30% for Glatt and this race is won by horses 5-1 to 10-1 a nice 40%

Race 5: Seeking the West, Talamo rides for Ellis 1st off the bench since a race here in September 2015 with a sharp workout. Ellis also races another in here but Talamo rides here at 10-1, dropping in class and being risked for claiming they want the win money

Race 6: Coronado Cool, Roman chose this over the Miyadi horse he rode the last 2 times, moving up in class off a win with a sharp workout and stretching out

Race 7: You’re A Goat, raced like she needed that race in June off the bench after 9 months, 2nd start US for a trainer 18% off the bench, prior to last race had won 3 in a row overseas and you all know my bias towards Euro turfers

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.
