“Catch” A Winner At Del Mar (8/22/15)

Aug 22nd, 2015 | By | Category: Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Saturday card and Pacific Classic Day — a tough card to handicap, so let’s see how I do today.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Pacific Classic, Catch a Flight (#7) will be 5 lengths off a fast pace and should make first run on the closers — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 9and 4.

In race 10, Roy H (#8) had huge excuse in last and takes these all the way with an alert getaway — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 5.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 6, 3 and 4

Race 2: 5 with 9 and 7

Race 3: 5, 3 and 2

Race 4: 2, 5 and 3

Race 5: 4 with 7 and 2

Race 6: 6 with 10 and 3

Race 9: 7 (Best Bet) with 9 and 4

Race 10: 8 (Best Bet) with 2 and 5

Race 11: 7 with 10 and 3

In race 4, Charis (#4) should love the turf and gets one of the best turf riders in the country to ride — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 8 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
