11-24-2019 Del Mar Full Card

We hit our 17-1 longshot Miss Flawless in race 5 yesterday that should have given us a massive Pick 5 win but alas a lazy ride in race 3 did us in. In the Pick 4 we ran 3 of 4 beating Roadster in the main race but running second in the last. We continue to be right there ready to collect that big win. The last race today is the best betting race on the card and should give excellent value. I have a nice early double value play as well today.

Pick 4/5 I need a single is in race  – none today I am hunting value$$$

Value Plays of the Day:

Race 1: Edna tries turf for the 1st time off a win up north in October for Miyadi. The horse won at Del Mar last summer and hit the bench for a year. Edna is undefeated in 3 starts and moves up in class today. Cagey trainer this 15-1 morning line price is very juicy and sneaky in here. Maldonado rides but this post position is ideal to have the horse sit 3rd/4th and blast home down the stretch. 

Race 2: Darkhawk is a 20-1 morning line horse but this race is won by longshots 39%. As good a class as the favorite this is a small stable and the horse is owner trained. A sharp 59 second 5 furlong work Nov 5th and another last week at 4 furlongs. Last out saw the horse surge late under the lights after running 4th and quickly pass the winner on the gallop add. Distance and price look ideal. Drops in class today as well. Double with our race 1 longshot.

Race 6: High Five at 12-1 has MUCH going for him. His owners the Wilsons are 3 for 3 at Del Mar. Trainer Cerin is 4 of 5 with a 2nd for an 80% win rate. New big boy Lopez hops on. Races protected today as well. (SCRATCHED) After You with Diaz has a big weight break today and from this inside post will have one option – go gate to wire. They do take the blinkers off and add Lasix. They horse keeps hitting the bench off races, last racing at Saratoga in July. The horse races protected today and these are the kinds of horse Drysdale wins on

Race 9: Coast of Roan was a 23-1 winner for us last out going gate to wire for Roman/O’Neill who are winning 29%. Moving up in class today 8-1 is great value. Horses over 5-1 win this race 30% of the time. Jamming Eddie gets Cedillo today who is 28% for Miller and we get a bullet workout last week of 59 seconds. The horse loves Del Mar with 2 wins this summer (DQ’d once). Racing protected 10-1 is great value. Best betting race of the day.

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.
