Del Mar 09-03-2016 Free Plays

The racing these past couple of days has not played out in our favor with some very strange results! When the early Pick 5 pays $13k you know there has been some serious chaos. The jockey battle into the weekend between Prat and Bejarano has not materialized and betting on their horses has been mute with Gonzalez picking up multiple winners. He started hot so looks like he wants to end hot. Today’s card is a HARD one but that also means big payouts are coming too! To make today’s hard card even harder Baffert sends out two in a few races and Bejarano, his new main guy races on the higher priced choices and Prat on the favorites. What shell game is that! All eyes will be on American Cleopatra in the 9th race today. There are absolutely no gimme’s in today’s card, big prices are assured! I saw this as one of the most difficult cards of the meet but then I looked at tomorrow’s card! I am taking some shots today and plan to keep the tickets small for the likely chaos but if we connect!

 

I will be covering the short 3 week Los Alamitos meet that begins next week.

 

 

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

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.”
