We ran 4 of 5 in the Pick 5 yesterday and then 3 of 4 in the Pick 4 and we ran second in both loses. A Baffert as usual let us down in the 1st leg of the Pick 4 falling asleep in the gate and flying to run second. The Pick 3 paid $271 and the late double $261 as 2 of our longshots came home. Our ‘capping is right there!
The Pick 5 sequence today has giant payout written all over it. Large, wide open fields and with the rails at 12 feet again early pace will still be the key on turf! The Pick 4 has even larger fields so it is a day where spreading is going to be key!
Del Mar is where the big prices usually hit and where our biggest wins have come!

longshot shopping again but in this early Pick 5 XXXXXX
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
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $27 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-5 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.
