Del Mar Full Card 08-23-2017

Update – Race 2 I am going to single 6

Race 5 I am using 7,6



It has been tough sledding at this meet so far with enough 3 of 4’s in the Pick 4 to drive a handicapper bonkers! We have 11 racing days left to take home the price. Our longshots are starting to come on nicely with another big one on Sunday at 301!


Today’s Full Card is only $8.



Pick 4 I need a single: None today


Longshots of the Day:

Race 4: Out Ofthe Ordinary, Theriot/Koriner/E-Racing do well here, 23% 2nd off the layoff, 2 wins from 5 at Del Mar, sharp work and 6-1 price

Race 7: Win the Space, 1st start since November for this Grade 1 racer, this race is won by horses over 10-1 a nice 20% and these stakes races tend to cause chaos especially when there is an odds on Baffert in it. I also love Soi Phet in here who has won 4 of 6 at Del Mar

Race 8: Fregosi, trainer is 2 of 4 lately and is moving up in class off a closing 3rd going shorter last out in May.  They appear to want to get paid if the horse is claimed and I view that as a positive. 46% of the winners of this race have been over 10-1 (6 of 13)


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







Today’s Pick 5 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference


6,1 (2)

10,8,3 (9)

10,2,7 (8)





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.
