Jeff Nahill’s Del Mar opinions for Friday, July 16 (Opening day) UPDATED

FIRST RACE: 1-7-2-4

SECOND RACE: 10-1-4-5

Everyone knows trainer Bob Baffert is deadly with 2-year-old firsters but did you know he’s 0-for-10 with debuting maiden claimers like #4 Midnight Mammouth? Now many people don’t consider this a claimer since it has a $150,000 price tag on every horse but the purse is only $50,000 and I think Del Mar MSW will be more than $70k this meet so it’s a step below. Midnight has good works, but I’ll pass on win end.

THIRD RACE: 3-8-6-7

FOURTH RACE: 1-7-10-4

Keep this in mind for the meet; trainer Peter Miller started a number of 2-year-olds at Gulfstream Park this spring and has shipped them to Del Mar for the Ship ‘N Win program #1 Don’t Ju Forget fits the mold. These horses have a race under their belt which can’t hurt in juvenile races. 

FIFTH RACE: 8-6-12-2

SIXTH RACE: 10-12-4-8

SEVENTH RACE: 5-2-9-6

No. 5 Eddie Haskell has scratched so new order is: 2-9-7-6

EIGHTH RACE: 3-1-4-10

No. 1 and No. 4 are scratched. New order: 3-5-2-10

NINTH RACE: 3-13-6-8 (best bet)

10TH RACE: 7-2-8-6

Good luck. Stay safe.

Jeff Nahill’s Woodbine opinions for Pick 5 carryover on Thursday, July 1 (Races 2-6)

I will be posting picks for Thursday’s Pick 5 carryover.

Also on Sunday, I will do Pimlico’s force out of the Rainbow 6 or whatever they call it.

RACE 2: 5-8-4-2

RACE 3: 7-2-6-4

RACE 4: 12-7-8-11-5.

Ok No. 12 Asha Ironborn is on the also-eligible list. If she gets in, I love here. Been facing better and coming out of a race that has produced two next out winners already. Finished second at this distance back in November and has a race under her belt.

RACE 5: 8-3-4-6

RACE 6: 11-9-7-1

Good luck. Stay safe.
