Del Mar Sunday: Mike Dennis picks the 7th and 9th races, with horses to consider in the 10th and 11th
Del Mar - July 18
Hello again and welcome to a new week on the calendar or known as bail out day among horse players. Overall this weekend has been a mess due to a Reds game and a Milwaukie Bucks miraculous comeback. On the horse front yours truly has been with family and friends in Ohio so I have not paid as much attention as I would have liked at Del Mar so far. With that being said here are a few winners for the readers of Bettors Insider today, best of luck if you are playing along at home.
Race 7 - (8) Next Shares 5-1
It may come off as a pick from the heart with the 8yo gelding but when looking at the paper the numbers are there to compete, pace set up seems logical enough and I am hoping the outside draw may lead to a clean trip or give options to Franco on approach with a good amount of speed coming from Prat. The team @drfinsidepost had a solid grade on the gelding as well with an eye-catching note.
Race 9 - (10) Anna Fantastic 6-1
In 5 furlong races things have to go right – clean break, no traffic and so forth. The key to me is getting value and with that being said 6-1, Umberto Rispoli and coming off a mini vacation lead to Anna Fantastic claiming my top pick in race 9. We will see if the recent, eye-catching work at 46.2 translates to anything.
Two other horses to check out, Lady Emily in race 11 and Contagion in Race 10.
Until next time.
