Del Mar fall meet review

Note: Well that was a heck of a final day with five winners. Too bad I was at work and couldn’t bet. I hope someone hit that late Pick 4 since I had three top choice winners and the other horse was my long shot. Remember I won’t be doing Los Alamitos unless I get totally bored. Have a happy holiday season and thanks for reading.

SUNDAY’S RESULTS

Top choice winners: 5 (One Upper $7.40, first race; Go Ghetto $4.40, fourth; Kate’s Princess $13, sixth; Uni $13.20, seventh; Loomis $17.20, ninth)

Second choice winners: 1 (Shaky Alibi $5.80, third)

Third choice winners: 0

Long shot winners: 1 (Calexman $19.40, eighth)

Good luck.

Del Mar fall meet opinions for Friday, Nov. 30

PREVIEW: I knew Thursday would be off the turf and I feel the same way about today’s card. With closing weekend’s big turf races, I don’t see any way Del Mar runs on the grass today.
That being said, there is one horse I like if it is run on the turf or the main track: No. 5 Rapid Red (3-1) in the eighth race. This gelding was claimed last time out by Jerry Hollendorfer. The 6-year-old has an 11-2-3-3 on the dirt and 11-4-1-3 on the grass. If the track is still wet, he is 7-2-1-1. Hollendorfer is 17 percent first off the claim.
Check back in the morning if Del Mar changes its mind or if there are a lot of scratches, again.

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.
