11-09-2019 Del Mar Full Card

Only 1 day in and the longshots are dominating at Del Mar. We have an 9 race card for today.

Pick 5 I need a single is in race 3 Papa Turf who won by 12 lengths last out under Cedillo who is still suspended. Velez gets the mount. Top last race speed, best speed in the race, best speed at the distance. We see a sharp work and the horse races protected today. Morning line is 2-1 but will be lower. Single!

Pick 4 I need a single is in race  – none

Value Plays of the Day:

Race 1: Mongolian Hero moves back to dirt after a failed attempt on turf last out. We get a sharp work for today and a great 15-1 price. This is the best betting race on the card. Jefe won last out for Desormeax under Maldonado who is 29% and they move up in class today. This is a race to hammer the exotic bets in.

Race 5: Moon Mischief at 5-1 is a value back-up to the Baffert odds on horse today. 3rd start and back to dirt where the horse ran second in the debut. Baze rides for Sadler who is 20% blinkers off, 24% turf to dirt.

Race 8: Golden Birthday is a Dp Racing play and they win with many longshots at Del mar. Won here in July going gate to wire at this distance. Top speed in the race and a hot jockey in the last week. 8-1 is great value.

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 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.”
