Being ship shape at Del Mar this season can bring a whole different meaning as again the legendary seaside track has installed a ‘ship and win’ policy and online sports betting site players should give extra attention to interlopers.

If a trainer starts a horse this summer at Del Mar that last ran out of state and the horse wins, Del Mar will pony up an extra 33% to the purse and also give those owners an extra $1,000 for just starting.

Obviously, this is a ploy to get fresh stock to the track and it makes tremendous sense as with Del Mar occurring later in the season, a lot of the usual suspect racing in Southern California are tired and sometimes worse for wear.

Both the $1,000 and the 33% boost will apply just to the runner’s first local start. And obviously, first-time starters don’t qualify.

What this means to Maiden Special Weight runners can be significant. If the current purse of a MSW is $75,000, the purse will be boosted to $100,000 for a shipper.

A $20,000 claimer that runs normally for $38,000, will be raised to $50,000 if a shipper succeeds.

That is not chump change.

As far as the bettors are concerned, this just gives connections of shippers added incentive to fire first crack at the beach.

It has been working and it took no time.

In the very first race of the meeting Sun Ray shipper Casa de Cambio came from fifth to win a $12,500 claimer and instead of getting the major portion of a $28,000 purse, the purse was raised to $37,000.

That’s a lot of money for a cheap claimer.

To wrap up the opening day festivities, Oaklawn Park invader Spring Up succeeded in a $20,000 claimer for cagey young trainer Cody Autrey and this is was just the beginning.

Logically, the more important the race, the bigger the boost and trainer Phil Oliver took advantage of the invading rule when his talented runner Closing Range got a perfectly-timed ride from Corey Nakatani to win the Osunitas Stakes on July 20.

Interestingly, runners shipping in from the Southwest have shown keen speed at Del Mar this meet and Wiredfortwotwenty proved he belongs in the big leagues after shipping from Ruidoso.

The invader enticed strong rider Rafael Bejarano for his Western debut and he took his field wire-to-wire winning a $40,000 claimer. What would have been a $53,000 purse for a locally based runner became a $70,000 pot.

If that is not incentive to watch shippers, it’s hard to come to any other conclusion.

In the very next race after the Ruidoso runner cashed, cagey Tom Proctor brought Arlington shipper Wishing Gate to the beach and won the Grade 2 $150,000 San Clemente Stakes and with the bonus almost took home the better part of $200,000.

As the meeting has gone on, another Sun Ray invader won and a Chicago shipper just missed cashing for Proctor.

It goes without saying, watch shippers and watch for runners that project to take to the Del Mar surface and rewards will be available.
