Del Mar Friday: After a win Thursday, Mike Dennis picks Race 6, the Rancho Bernardo Handicap
One Play Mike
Thursday Recap: Del Mar Race 7 - Rijeka (IRE)
Joe Bravo took Rijeka (IRE) from 2nd to last to the winners circle at 3-1. The pace was set up by a valiant effort from Margot's Boy, who took lots of action being bet down to 5-1, from a 15-1 morning line. The Del Mar turf ate up another front runner and at this point I may pick up a few mounts today for extra coin.
Rijeka paid $8 to win (ML 5-1) and is trained by Phil D'Amato.
Race 6 - The Rancho Bernardo Handicap - Grade 3 - Fillies and Mares 3yo+ - 6 1/2 F
Field Size: 5
ML Fav: 4-Edgeway (8-5)
Mike's Pick: 3-Stellar Sound (2-1)
The attractiveness of betting a 2-1 horse in a five horse field is comparable to how I look physically lately, very sexy.
Most bettors seem to pick on short fields, this particular G3 race of 5 though is stacked with competitiveness.
1-Scotish Star ( ARG ) (9-5)
Always play the horse, but ya it is Prat & and the #1 OG, Mr. Mandella.
Note who won Scotish Star's last race.
King Umberto aboard, interesting. Is Sadler finally winning again? I may put eyes on his entries rest of meet.
3-Stellar Sound (2-1)
My pick. Simple, popping a 92 # off bench, follow it up with a .47 and my respect for connections = $$$. + finish for 1/2 panel
4- Edgeway (8-5)
Will take additional $$$ because of the winner race last out.
5-Proud Emma (8-1)
Has banged up and won against these before. Pace there to run at? 1/2 panels tend to crush dreams.
Thank you for reading and best of luck with all of your bets today!
