No more turf races till Del Mar and with many trainers and owners waiting for the Del Mar meet or prepping their horses prior, its going to likely mean nice prices or chalks are in store in the next couple of weeks. For me that means keep those tickets on the low end! Today we start with an $8k claimer and a $10k claimer – yikes!


You can see my best bets, longshots and the Pick 5 selections over on my website for free


Best Bets:

Race 8: Patience Lady


Longshots of the Day:

Race 5: Betty’s Joy



Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $12 with horses listed in preference.







Races 1-5 selections and also for 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.


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.”
