Del Mar 09-02-2016 Free Plays

What a horrible day on Thursday, not even sniffs as even money favorites struggled to finish races. Betting on Prat and Bejarano saw squat as both were blanked and Gonzalez and Baze won a chunk of races. Let’s shrug it off and move on to today’s card.

 

The last few days should be like the first few with bombs mixed in with favorites. We are going to see a lot of 2 year olds in the coming days plus horses who need to get some work on turf before the Santa Anita meeting. That could mean nice prices are in store. Are the turf horses that go favorite out for exercise or are they legit? Are the price turf horses the legit ones? It’s going to be a nice end to a fantastic summer meet no matter how the chips fall! The Friday card looks like it could pay very, very well especially if we connect on some of the many longshots we have today. I am still keeping the tickets on the low to moderate end today, we are either going to hit with what we are using or not and spending extra is unlikely to help! I do have a lot of options for today’s Pick 5 as it could pay nicely.

 

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

 

 

Pick 4 “I need a Single” in race 8 Vending Machine who bobbled in the debut race and a couple of horses behind have won since, O’Neill is the frozen tundra at Del Mar though!

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.

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

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