Surf and Turf

Posted by on 7/9/2014 10:43:35 PM

Let’s go over what one should avoid and embrace during the Del Mar meeting that opens on July 17 and rolls to September 3. Online sports betting site enthusiasts may also be able to get inkling this summer of what the first fall Del Mar stand will be all about.

That meeting goes from November 7 to November 30.

First off, be careful about betting just off the Santa Anita form. The dirt track in Arcadia and the Polytrack are a totally different animals and it may take the runners time to acclimate. And with Del Mar’s proximity to the ocean, the tides can play havoc on the racing surface.

Also try to use the horse for course angle and key on runners that have done well at Del Mar or at other synthetic venues.

The most astute players year in and year out pay strict attention to where the winners are coming from on a daily basis. Even on the synthetic track, winning styles can change rapidly and if a horse seems to handle a horse in a morning workout is no guarantee that runner will excel in the afternoon when the money is down.

Be honest when looking at all types of styles, as you can’t get caught up with speed and only the speed. Many fans have a myopic view of the game and have not yet adapted to the synthetic, so take advantage.

And the human element is always huge. Owners that make the trek down for the meet want action and you cannot keep a decent claiming horse in your stable unless you padlocked him to the stall. Pay attention to upper echelon sophomores that have been freshened for this meet. The fact that they have not been through a hard grind all year gives them an opportunity to put 2 or 3 super races together against a tired crew.

Avoid getting caught up in the chalk fiesta and jump on all the short prices you’ll see. Younger fans that are in mass at this meet just want to cash tickets and some don’t care if the price is 3-5 or 3-2. They just get a thrill of cashing. That’s why short prices abound.

Don’t be scared to take a shot with Northern California shippers. Steve Miyadi, a high percentage guy, only figures to bring live horses to this meeting. He was 4 for 26 last year and 9 others ran in the money.

And if history is to repeat itself, bet every chance you can on horses trained by Leonard Powell. He saddled 13 runners last year and 5 won for a lead leading 38%.

Embrace the turf racing. Last year, favorites were prominent on grass but with the new 7-furlong inner course, all bettors will be looking at something new. Attempt to find agile, shifty runners than can quicken in a hurry.

Taking a shot at foreigners or runners that are coming off layoffs and using them in the exotics is a good way to turn a short price winner into huge dividends. And remember, South American-bred racers for some reason seem to thrive at this meet.

Don’t lose focus. One day does not make a difference. Keep an even keel and take care of the bankroll.

In one is lucky enough to be in attendance at the track, do not dare leave the track without trying a margarita. There is no better way to soothe a tough beat or celebrate a juicy trifecta hit.

And lingering around just after the racing action is a prime position to take in the crowd and what it crowd it will be.
