Tips For Betting On Bing Crosby Handicap – Amazombie, The Factor Set To Duel

Posted by Marco Sussman on 7/24/2012 6:28:26 PM

Online betting players in the know about horse racing are aware that the Bing Crosby Handicap is one of the most prestigious races in the United States, and the Grade-1 event at Del Mar in California is named after the legendary entertainer who was a founder of the track in 1946 and was an avid horse breeder. There are only five horses in the field thus far, so keep an eye on the news, but the top two horses should put on a show, and they could be joined by a third.

Amazombie has raced in nine graded-stakes races and has never finished lower than third, winning four of them, including last year’s Breeders Cup Sprint, which he’ll try and defend in November. Amazombie is coming off a second-place run in the Grade 2-Churchill Down Stakes, where he came in behind 2011 Preakness Stakes winner Shackleford, and he is perfect for the shorter races. At six furlongs, Amazombie is definitely a threat.

But The Factor beat Amazombie at the Grade 2-San Carlos at Santa Anita in February and after a disappointing sixth-place run in Dubai, he rebounded for a second-place run in the Grade 1-Triple Bend at Hollywood Park. Rafael Bejarano returned to the saddle two races ago after turning it over to Mike Smith, but he and The Factor are getting back on the same page.

Comma To The Top never really panned out for horse betting players after a dominant two-year-old campaign which he closed out with three straight wins, but he is coming off a third-place run in the Kerlan Memorial Handicap and he may be finding his place in the handicap-racing scene. The potential is there for Comma To The Top and he may need some breaks to beat the top two, but he could be worth a darkhorse bet.

Capital Account is making his first run in a graded-stakes race after a maiden and four allowance races, so this is obviously a big step up in competition for the five-year-old, and his lack of experience may hurt him. However, he has a solid jockey on his back in Martin Garcia, and that could make a world of difference for Capital Account.

Don Tito has run three handicap races, finishing no better than third, and he hasn’t run a graded-stakes race in 2012, so a quick start for him is imperative. The last race Don Tito ran was his first with Garrett Gomez, so there shouldn’t be a large expectation for this horse.
The top two will probably distance themselves from the pack and the edge goes to Amazombie unless Garcia goes back to The Factor. There is something to be said about the relationship between a horse and its jockey, and Mike Smith has been in the saddle for 19 of 26 races. Take Amazombie in your sports betting picks.
