08-24-2017 Del Mar Full Card

This is a tough card awaiting us today so I am keeping the tickets on the low end and hoping for the best because I don’t think throwing money at these sequences today will help. We will hit or not with the small tickets! The 50c Pick 5 paid $14k yesterday!


Today’s Full Card is only $8.





Pick 4 I need a single: None today


Longshots of the Day:

Race 1: My Farmer, won at this distance under this jockey 2 back

Race 7: Lookinforadanger, rails at 30 feet and jockey upgrade as they try to steal this race on the front end gate to wire baby like one race ago, 2nd start off the bench

Race 8: Roman Tizzy – Desormeaux sticks around for a $10k claimer last race of the day for Cerin makes you go hmmmm especially at 12-1!


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 with horses listed in preference.







Today’s Pick 5 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.
