Thursday was another great day that was almost a fantastic day when we got tagged on the line in race 5 for a $4,000 Pick 5 win! Our longshots did great yesterday and the rolling doubles and pick 3’s into the 5th race paid fantastic! $253 doubles, $143-200 pick 3’s it was a very nice day all around that was almost a monster day! Let’s see what we can do today. Del Mar has been fantastic and should continue its tendency for longshots wins. The Pick4 ends today with an $8k claimer, the most unreliable there is but that means the payouts should be very, very nice again today! This inside posts were on fire yesterday but this season at Del Mar what’s working one day does not the next as they will be grooming the dirt track again! The rails are at 30 feet into the weekend so early speed has to be factored into picks, especially at prices!
I will have a special card for the Pacific Classic tomorrow as well as a bonus Stakes Pick 4 with Del Mar and Saratoga.
Del Mar is where the big prices usually hit and where our biggest wins have come!
Today’s Card is $8 or
Pick 4 “I need a Single” in race 5 Nat’s Nation with Talamo riding, he has been off this meet but I am looking for a forward runner with the rails at 30 feet and this horse led gate to wire last out in May, off the shelf running Friday night at Del Mar should be fully cranked for owners to get their picture taken
The Pick 5 for us today XXXXXXX
Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40.50 horses listed in preference.
Pick 5 will cost $54
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.
