11-15-2018 Del Mar Full Card

When I see a card like today where I find it hard to dig up longshots it usually means a price horse I will never land on could win and as such I am going to keep the tickets super low today. Depending how the early races shape up I may look to spend more cash on rolling doubles and trifecta boxes.


Pick 4 I need a single is race – none today longshot shopping


Pick 5 I need a single is in race 3 Mo See Cal who was a longshot play for me this past weekend in a stakes race but scratched out for this spot instead. Any other jockey riding this would be a major single for me but win rider Van Dyke is replaced with Mike “always second” Smith. Van Dyke rides Whirling. I’m using both but…




Longshots of the Day:

Race  – None, say what!


Today’s Race 5 Late Pick 4 will cost $12 depending on singles with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Early Pick 5 will cost $36 with singles 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.

“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”

“The grace of God is found between the saddle and the ground.”
