09-09-2022 Del Mar Full Card

The final weekend of racing and alas we have to deal with rain and factor that into handicapping. I am handicapping as normal but expecting turf races to be off. There will probably be lots of scratches today.

Value Plays of the Day:

Race 2: Dream a Dream 2nd time Lasix, bullet work, great price.

Race 3: Smokem For You – bad race but the bullets this horse in the mornings if it translates to the afternoon at this price could be nice. Inside post a big negative.

Race 5: Big Threat – 2nd time Lasix, another bullet work.

Race 7: Moon Ice – 6-1 with Prat riding a debut horse for Sadler.

Race 8: Coast Of Roan – Prat will be the key here today

Typos happen and I do my best not to make them. Always read through my writeups to make sure the posted numbers are correct. I list Pick 4, Pick 5 selections and also a listing of all plays for each race. If there are any differences, please let me know.

*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 outsider 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.”
