2nd Place Del Mar Handicapping Tournament  $54,912 winnings July 31st 2022

Del Mar Sunday December 3rd 2023

Closing Day Del Mar is always a bittersweet day especially after some good success the day before with a nice $999 Pick 4! We have a card with lots of price potential today. My tickets are higher than I would like but it’s a gamble-on day again! Thank you for stopping by and reading my race analysis during the Fall Meet. See you at Santa Anita!

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 7: Gracelund Gray – Smith rides for Eurton and they are 2 of 4. Bullet work, huge price, if Smith can ration that early speed and not get in a speed duel, instead sitting 2-3 back there is a longshots chance! Ruby Nell will try to wire them a tactic that has worked.

Today’s Race 6 $0.50 Late Pick 4 will cost $100 with horses listed in preference    

Race 6:  3,6,9,8

Race 7:  4,5,7,3,10

Race 8:  4,2

Race 9:  6,1,3,2,10 (43% of winners are over 5-1) 

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.
