It was 3 of 4 yesterday in the Pick 4 with our longshot winning and our top choice in the last race coming in at a great price but it was the featured race that did us in annoyingly. I said to expect chaos and chaos we got but unfortunately I landed on the wrong outsider. Still, our ‘capping is right there this week so lets get to work and take down some nice payouts today!
Many will consider today’s Pick 4 sequence a late double with two free Baffert squares in the first two legs. I agree on the first leg but like I said yesterday the stakes races in So Cal have been chaotic this year and there is a really interesting price play in race 8 for us. The last two legs are spread races too so even if there are two free spots the Pick 4 will pay nicely. The Pick 5 sequence today looks like it could be another big, big payout!
Del Mar is where the big prices usually hit and where our biggest wins have come!
Pick 4 “I need a Single” in race 7 Big Gray Rocket from Baffert with Bejarano riding, I don’t like singling Bob’s horses but off these works if this horse don’t blow the rest away its an all race. Baffert has been doing very well at Del Mar and he and Bejarano are 45%
longshot shopping again!
I have a lot of potential longshots today so my plan is an eye on trifecta and superfecta boxes using our plays plus post time favs we don’t have or top jockeys on prices
Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Race 6: Night Badger, off slow last out with 2 sharp works before and has put in another sharp workout ahead of this race at 30-1 off workouts has a chance
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-6 selections and also for Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes
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.
