One day does not make a meeting and a few days do not make a season but online horseracing players can get a pretty good clue already on how Del Mar is trending so far.
On opening day 8 of the 9 races were won from off the pace and this included races on the Polytrack and on the grass.
It was evident early that speed was dead on the lead. You just have to read the comments of the winners from the day to note that the place to be and the style that was live was to settle and make the one run.

The comments of the first 8 winners read like an automatic instant replay. This is what they said in part: ‘came three deep into the stretch and three wide in midstretch’; ‘to get up three deep on the line’; ‘came 5 wide into the stretch’; ‘went 4 wide on the bend and 5 wide into the stretch’.

Pete Eurton won with a debuter. John Sadler and Vann Belvoir had Golden Gate shippers get home and the only wire-to-wire winner came in the ninth when Mike Mitchell saddled a sizzling $16,000 claimer for his fourth straight win validating his clear back class.

When the smoke cleared, sports betting fans saw a record opening day crowd of 46,588 had watched the drama and 6 lucky handicappers walked away with nearly $65,000 by winning the Pick Six.
Speed played much better the second day of the meet but it was back to Day One after 72 hours. Comments of some of the winners on the third day read: ‘advanced three wide’; ‘4 wide into the stretch’; and ‘5 wide into the stretch’.

On the first Saturday of the stand, positional speed was again a huge asset. There were a few runners that went all the way on the lead and not one horse all day came from left field.

The clue that bettors can try to learn from is that the way Del Mar played Saturday will likely be the way that will dominate throughout the stand.

Since the turf course has very tight turns, to come from the clouds a horse generally has to be much the best. The preferred style year in and year out is to maintain contact with the leaders at all times, attempt to save as much ground as one can, then be able to quicken on cue to get the first run on the deep closers.

As far as the human element so far, players betting horses can expect horses from different states to thrive this meet.

This stand has been kind through the years to South Americans, and now because of the current economic climate, the powers that be at Del Mar have taken a pro-active stance.

Del Mar Racing Secretary Tom Robbins introduced a cash carrot to stimulate entries. If a horse ran its last race out-of-state, and has not run in California in six months, its owner can collect a $1,000 bonus and a 20 percent purse bonus on overnight (non-stakes) races by running at Del Mar.

That is real money and it turns a winning portion of an open Maiden Special Weight purse goes from a $37,800 payday for an owner to a $46,360 bonanza.
This kind of bonus can change the books in a hurry.

Remember, if you’re online horse betting, look for tactical speed runners and live shippers to cash big tickets this meet.
