Horse Racing Betting Tips by Richard Saber |

Friday, August 15 results

At Del Mar we had a good start in the early double as Rosario won the first race again and paid $22.40 but our single in race two ran a lack luster fourth. We lost race three but had a small winner in race four hitting a little exacta and the Q. We hit a small Q in race six but lost money. We did hit a little double for race five to race six as our key horse in race six won. We had the winner in race seven but could not get the second horse and our late pick three went down when we got beat a nose on the wire, I still think our horse won. Our Bay Meadows play went down the tubes just like Bay Meadows will in two days.

Del Mar

Race 1

No. 3, Warrens Highroller, exits our HTW list and looks like a main contender, her main foes will come from No. 1, Paloma’s Flight, and No. 6 Bran Jammas. 1-3-6

Race 2

No. 4, Intermission, is a very live first time starter out of the Carla Gaines barn and Rosario rides. No. 6, Kaptain Kordough, ran big in his one and only here on Aug 3, if he don’t bounce he will be very tough in here. 4-6

No. 8, World War, gets a great post for is first of the Avila claim, he looks the one to beat in here. No. 8

Race 4

No1 Friendly Silk comes back in a good spot for trainer Lobo and the price is right. No. 4 Birdie Birdie had trouble in her first start and now is stretched out. No. 9 Cherryblossommiss will be hard to down if she can handle the grass. 1-4-9

Race 6

This one needs the all button to be pushed, but we will take a shot with No. 2 G’s Heavenly Union and No. 3 Watsnewpussykat who is owned by Burt Bacharach and is a first time starter trained by Mike Mitchell.
