Del Mar Sunday September 10th 2023

Closing Day of what I can say for me as a punter was an extremely frustrating and tough meet, probably the toughest in my many years of gambling here at the beach. Thank you for stopping by and reading my views on races each day this Summer. We have a 2 week break before racing resumes at Santa Anita.

Reminder for college basketball fans. Closing Day Sunday is Aztec Day. Coaches and players from this year’s SDSU championship game will be on track at Del Mar.

My longshot/value plays are horses I believe will out run their longshot odds and even potentially win at nice prices. This can be very useful for those doing exotic bets such as trifectas, exactas and Pick 4/5/6’s.

Longshot/Value Plays of the Day: 

Race 8: Charles ChromeGulfstream invader Edwin a great gate jockey rides. Has top early speed –  BULLET WORK! WIRE job strategy! Risked for the claim for the ship and win bonus. This is the top play of the weekend for me.

Today’s Race 8 $0.50 Late Pick 4 will cost $60 with horses listed in preference

Race 8:  7,5,2,4

Race 9: 6,4,1

Race 10: 1,5

Race 11: 3,10,8,6,9

Typos happen and I do my best not to make them. Always read through my writeups to make sure the posted numbers are correct. I list Pick 4, Pick 5 selections and also a listing of all plays for each race. If there are any differences, please let me know.

*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 outsider 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.”
