Del Mar Opening Day Late Pick 4 Analysis

Large Ticket

Race 7: 3,5,6,8,11,12

Race 8: 2,4,5

Race 9: 1,9

Race 10: 2,3,4,6,7,10,11,13

Total Cost: $144

Analysis: Del Mar opens off with an interesting late Pick 4.  In my opinion the middle two legs are pretty straight forward, and the outside two legs are tough.  The seventh is a low claimer with a full field, and one you better go deep in.  I could see a lot of tickets blow up right off that bat.  Race 8 and 9 should be races you can get through going fairly light, but the 10th is WIDE OPEN.  Hitting the ALL button might be the best plan in this one.

Small Ticket

Race 7: 6,8

Race 8: 4,5

Race 9: 1,9

Race 10: 2,3,4,6,7,10,11,13

Total Cost: $32

Analysis: This ticket is very similar to my large ticket.  The only big difference is I took a risk in the seventh and only went two deep.  I just eliminated one horse in the eighth off my large ticket, and kept the ninth and tenth the same.  The tenth is just not a race you want to cut corners with.  Good luck to all playing, and if you are attending Del Mar today I hope you have a great time!
