Jeff Nahill’s Del Mar results

Note: I guess I should have just skipped Sunday all together but at least I gave out a cold exacta in the last. Going to take a couple weeks off before Santa Anita, but you never know, I might get bored and handicap Tampa Bay or Gulfstream Park now and then. Stay safe.

Jeff Nahill’s Del Mar opinions for Thursday, Nov. 26 (Thanksgiving, first post 11 am.)

Notable: Well that was a nice little streak last weekend as one of my top three horses won 19 straight races and then the bombs started coming in. I say if trainers Knapp and Gomez win races, I’m going to lose. Good for you if you had those guys.Couple of interesting stats I came across, trainer Richard Mandella is having a fabulous meet. He is 15-7-2-4 overall and on the turf he is 8-4-2-2. He hasn’t been out of the money on the grass.Speaking of grass, leading jockey Abel Cedillo is 36-7-5-2 but a lot of those wins came when Flavien Prat and Umberto Rispoli were at the Breeders’ Cup. Since coming back from Kentucky, Prat (24-7-5-3) and Rispoli (32-6-8-4) are a combined 56-13-13-7 on the turf. You want to avoid Tiago Pereira (30-1-2-3), Alexis Centeno (18-0-1-1) and Victor Espinsoza (9-0-0-1) on the green stuff.On the dirt, Cedillo leads the way with a 41-11-5-5 mark. Try to avoid Drayden Van Dyke (15-1-4-2), Mario Gutierrez (1 for 20) and Jose Valdivia Jr. (0 for 10) on the main track.


FIRST RACE: 1. Papale, 2. Today Matters, 3. Red Hot Ct. LONG SHOT: Saguaro.

SECOND: 1. Squared Straight (best bet), 2. Mamba Cool, 3. Burnin Turf. LONG SHOT: Secret Club.

THIRD: 1. Julius, 2. Lionite, 3. Horse Greedy. LONG SHOT: Secret Courier.

FOURTH: 1. Beguiled, 2. Over Attracted, 3. Applecross. LONG SHOT: Awesome Drive.

FIFTH: 1. Street Behavior, 2. Most Sandisfactory, 3. Western Smoke. LONG SHOT: Malibu Prince.

SIXTH: 1. Colonial Creed, 2. Quick, 3. California Kook. LONG SHOT: Going to Vegas.

SEVENTH: 1. Dorita’s Lemon, 2. Octopus, 3. Smileforme. LONG SHOT: Street Image.

EIGHTH: 1. Gregdar, 2. Armour Plate, 3. Bench Judge. LONG SHOT: Palace Prince.

Good luck. Stay safe.
