Del Mar 08-31-2016 Free Plays

We swept the Sunday card taking down a $232 Pick 5 and then a $643 Pick 4! All for small bets and not counting doubles and Pick 3’s! When the big favorite Enola Gray scratched the horse we added won gate to wire at a price! Very, very nice. We enter the last 6 racing days of the summer meet at Del Mar. We are going to be seeing a lot of 2 year olds in the coming days as well as horses getting ready for the Santa Anita meet in October (racing goes to Los Alamitos for 3 weeks). This should mean good payouts if we land on some outsiders along with those second coming horses! Let’s end the Del Mar meet like we started with some big wins! Prat is 7 up on Bejarano but don’t count Bejarano out! Could be a wild finish to the jockey title in the coming days! Today’s Pick 4 ends with an $8k claimer just to make things interesting.


Del Mar is where the big prices usually hit and where our biggest wins have come!

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.



3,6,8 (3 single if you want coverage elsewhere)




Races 1-6 selections and also for $24 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.


Irish horse racing saying –

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

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