This past Saturday and Sunday were a debacle, as was the Del Mar meet in general with just two days left; todays card is enough to make a grown horseplayer cry uncle.

Del Mar

There is no value in the first two races, and in race three we just get more of the same, 2yo maiden filly action but we will give out our leans.

Race 1

Key the 3 with 1-6

Race 2: 5-6

Race 3: 3-5-10-13

Race 4

In here the No. 3, Dezba, was last seen running at Turfway Park last year for trainer Patrick Biacone and now shows up here for trainer John Shirreffs, she is 15-1 in the morning line and may be worth a small play. No. 6, Gloria Goodbody, had a ton of trouble in her last and could rebound with the switch back to the Poly. No. 7, Fools Paradise, has won both her starts on this track, one from off the pace and the other in wire to wire fashion.

Race 5

The 19th Running of the Im Smokin and we have a very evenly matched bunch of statebred 2yo going 6 furlongs. 1-2-8-10-11

Race 6

This one is for maiden fillies routing on the grass? Trainer Bobby Frankel has been blanked this meet, he must have lost his juice when shipping in. He could stop the bleeding here as he sends out No. 2 Solo Piano a second time starter that he is stretching out on the grass. No. 10 Saugatuck River exits the same race and has ran ok sprinting on the grass. 2-10

Key Play

$10 Q 2-10 for $10

$20 win 10 for $20

Race 7

The 9th Running of The Windy Sands and this one looks well worth a nice bet but we have been there before at this meet. In here we will key on No. 8 Dilemma who loves this course and won in fine style here on August 8, he looks good in this spot. No. 10 Mr. Napper Tandy has some class and exits the same race a second place finish to Dilemma. 8-10

Key Play

$10 Q 8-10 for $10

$20 win 8 for $20

$10 double

6th 2

7th 8 for $10

Race 8

No. 8, Saint Spot, looks great here on the drop along with No. 3, Enactment. 3-8

Key Play

$10 Q 3-8 for $10

$20 win 8 for $20

$2 pick three

6th 2-10

7th 8-10

8th 3-8 for $16

Race 9

The 58th Running of the Del Mar Debutante and we have at least half the field with a shot, we will play doubles from race eight keying on the 3-8 from race eight to 2-3-4-5-8-9-11-12

Key Play

$2 double

8th 3-8

9th 2-3-4-5-8-9-11-12 for $32

Race 10

Bob Baffert who has been heating up a little has two in here, No. 2 Star Time and the unlucky No. 7 Guns On the Table, after that it could be 4 No. 4 Ksar Ghilane, No. 8 Belgrave Square, No. 9 Game A.P., No. 10 Hingham Square or No. 12 Fortified.

Key Play

$2 Q 7 with 2-4-8-9-10-12 for $12
