Del Mar, Horse racing

Del Mar fall meet opinions for Thursday, Nov. 29 (UPDATED)

Preview: I will tell you this was a tough card to handicap due to the weather forecast. It was well known last weekend that it was going to rain on Thursday (up to an inch along the coast), but Del Mar stuck to its original plan with four of the eight races on the grass. I will be surprised if that happens. I definitely think the two turf sprints at 5 furlongs won’t be on the grass and the other two, we’ll see. I encourage you to check back Thursday morning after 10:30 a.m. after the Del Mar changes are announced. I hope I’m wrong, but don’t think so.

TOLD YOU SO!!

FIRST RACE: 1. S Y SKY (best bet), 2. Moon Kitty, 3. Nine Point Nine. LONG SHOT: Ippodaamia’s Girl.
I really like this filly, rain or shine. She won in her only turf try at Santa Anita and she has a second over an off track, also in Arcadia. She drops out of the Betty Grable and I think she will stay in the race no matter what.

Del Mar fall meet opinions for Friday, Nov. 23

Preview: Thanks for all the support and then I throw out a zero on top choice winners. Of course, my top picks in the first two races scratched but on the other hand I had four horses I picked second win. Hopefully, someone caught that trend. That’s the one good thing about horse racing, there are more races to handicap.

Del Mar fall meet opinions for Thursday, Nov. 22 (Thanksgiving Day)

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.

FIRST RACE: 1. Shane Zain, 2. Very Very Stella, 3. El Huerfano. LONG SHOT: Kristi’s Copilot.
==
SECOND RACE: 1. Ria Munk, 2. Strengthinnumbers, 3. Storming Lady. LONG SHOT: Magical Gray.
==
THIRD RACE: 1. R B Eye, 2. Lagoon Macaroon, 3. Nations Hope. LONG SHOT: Irish Polo.
==
FOURTH RACE: 1. MAJESTIC EAGLE (best bet), 2. Morse Code, 3. High Promise. LONG SHOT: Arms Runner.
==
FIFTH RACE: 1. Topgallant, 2. Secret Touch, 3. Rhettbutler. LONG SHOT: Jersey’s Heat.
==
SIXTH RACE: 1. Pantsonfire, 2. Vexatious, 3. Escape Clause. LONG SHOT: The Tulip.
==
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Oozie, 2. Sheza Chattykat, 3. Amuse. LONG SHOT: Lady Ninja.
==
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Tyfosha, 2. A Little Bit Me, 3. Amandine. LONG SHOT: Tell Me More.
