Del Mar 11-20-2016 Free Plays

A nice day of racing today awaits us with some possible singles in the sequences that if they falter should lead to generous payouts again. Don’t forget racing heads back early on Thanksgiving day with a 1st post at 11am.




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



Pick 4 “I need a Single” is in race 8 Gold Rush Dancer, overmatched in two Grade 2’s back to stakes races where he has dominated winning 3 in a row including one here at Del Mar in July, Prat riding, 2nd start off a layoff


In the Pick 5 today in race 4 if #10 draws in the Pick 5 ticket becomes $72. For smaller ticket players the choice is to use #10 or look to single in race 2 or the Baffert in race 3


Best Bets: no clear standouts but the race 2 and 3 double looks among the better double set-ups we have seen thus far at the meet.


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

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






Races 1-5 selections and also for $54 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.
