Preview: This was a tough card to handicap because rain is forecast overnight at Del Mar so whether the turf races remain on the grass is up in the air. The only race I think will stay on unless there is a monsoon is the Grade III Red Carpet so check the track conditions Thursday morning.
Let me address another issue. I’ve gotten one NASTY and one sort of nasty comment on the selections here not having program numbers. No. 1, unless you pay for the website or pay me to give you selections, don’t tell me what what to do, especially your tone of voice. I pay for the website and don’t get a dollar back from it. If you don’t like what you see, don’t come here. This is FREE. I have a life and job and health issues and I will do things the way I want. Period. Like I said, if you don’t like it, take a hike. PERIOD. Sorry to everyone else but I had to get that off my chest.
