8/22/12: Del Mar Wednesday Pick 5

Feeling a little lucky today.
I like a mid-priced horse today in the pick 5 at DelMar that I will single in my ticket. I like playing pick 4 & pick 5 tickets when singling a good priced horse that way i can take my chances at being in position for big scores.  You can find my top three picks for every race at DelMar on theracingedition.com Also check back here on Friday for my free Los Alamitos selections.

The good thing about the Pk5 at DelMar is the low take out, big pools and the fifty cent minimum bet allows for good coverage.

Race 1: 5,6
Race 2: 5,6,7
Race 3: 1,4,5,6,7,8
Race 4: 3,4
Race 5: 5

Ticket Total : $36

Key Single: #5 Jules Journey in race 5. This Runner was fractious at the gate last time and was hounded on the lead by a baffert runner (the brain, who was favored) through fast fraction when going long. This gelding fought off that foe (the brain faded) but the fast fractions took a toll on him and the horses that sat behind that duel ended up finishing 1st & 2nd, he held third. Jules Journey came back to work smartly and I like that he gets off the rail and does not have to be used early to establish position. The other speed (Regulus) removes the blinkers and I don't think he will show enough speed to duel. I think Jules with Martin Garcia will take control and improve greatly this second time routing at DelMar.

Good Luck!

I watch horses run around.
