Horse Racing Betting Tips by Richard Saber |

HOLLYWOOD PARK/DEL MAR

ADAM SUANCES: Was last seen running at Golden Gate last May but came back running in a 40k maiden claimer just crushing this field. He may be able to move up and repeat.

BEST OF INTENTIONS: Looked best in his last race but just couldn’t handle the live comebacker Adam Suances. Was the best of the rest though and looks set to break his maiden next time out.

CACTUS FLYER: First time starter was bet down to the 8/5 chalk in 25k maiden claimer. She dueled for the lead while inside horses, then drifted out and battled wide midway on the turn. She fell back and looked done but was coming on late and just did miss the place while six lengths better than the rest. This girl was claimed by top trainer John Sadler for his best clients Gary and Cecil Barber and he just may be pointing her to the Del Mar meet as the brothers Barber like to vacation there. $$$$$

FU PEG HE RAT: I’ve been following this guy for a while now and he just can’t get a break. He once again ran a better than looked race at 9/1 but got into his best stride late. He was just flying at the wire. Maybe at Del Mar.

SODA POP KID: Is one tough nut gelding who always puts in a good effort. He ran another good race in winning a 50k claimer and was claimed by Bill Spawr for some of his best clients. There have been claims galore lately as they gear up for the Del Mar meet. This looks to be a very good one. $$$

ALFARABI: First time starter was sent off as the second choice against the up and coming ZipQuik, who was just too quick for Rabi. But, he did run a super race finishing second two lengths better than the third place finisher. This guy looks like a good single next time out for trainer Harty.

BAD BOY: Won his last by ¾ of a length, but if you watched the race he just exploded by them in one huge move. This guy will move up and repeat. $$$$$

VERANDA CAF…: Just loved this gal in most recent race and singled her in the early pick four. She got a lousy trip and should redeem herself next time.

ANNIES LOADED: First time starter hopped in a slow start and was far back. Her race was over as Espinoza just let her run around the course. There’s more here than meets the eye. This girl could pop at a big price.

HAJJIS HONOR: I was watching this race at home on TVG and wondered what jockey Talamo was doing with this guy. He had him in the hunt then dropped him back and then came four wide. After the race trainer Brian Koriner said, what were you doing out there toe head? He didn’t like the ride either.

QUALITY PLUS: Just put in a super effort from post #13 in a full field of 32k maiden claimers. Battled tooth and nail the entire six furlongs just losing the place by a head. This guy has some speed, If able to clear early next time out he will be gone.

RON BOB AND DAVE: Turf sprinter was coming off a year on the shelf and needed this race. He will be set for a winning run next time out.
