Somo Bombs: Del Mar and Saratoga Picks for August 8, 2019

Somo Bombs: Del Mar and Saratoga Picks for August 8, 2019

Ah, so close yesterday! We nailed the early Pick 5 at Saratoga for $400 on a $96 ticket, but were live to $7,500 into that race. A tight photo in the prior race hurt that payout with a 2-1 favorite nosing out a 10-1 with both on the ticket. At Del Mar, we lost a photo that cost us the Late Pick 5, but the Late Pick 4 cashed so it was still a decent day.

Today Del Mar is tough with a lower class of horses so I’m pulling back the amount I am betting, but taking stands in 4 of the 7 races including one stone cold single.

At Saratoga, you’ve got another competitive card with the chance for some prices. It could be a day filled with 3-1 to 5-1 winners so if we can string a couple of them together we could get a decent Pick 5 payout!

Good Luck!

This is an add-on product

Racing Dudes does an amazing job covering every track every day. That’s simply not possible for me. It was one of the biggest roadblocks to making this possible. I generally only play Gulfstream Park’s Championship Meet, Del Mar, Saratoga, Keeneland, Santa Anita, Churchill downs, and carryover pools. For me to be happy with the product, I was not willing to expand on what I do best. For that reason, this is an add-on to the Racing Dudes Premium Pick products. If you are playing a track I covered that day and want my multi-race plays and advice, it’s now exclusively offered here on Racing Dudes!

My style is extremely volatile

While I have won 21 of the last 26 months playing Pick 3’s, Pick 4’s and Pick 5’s, I have had many losing days. What I try to do day in and day out is focus on specific tracks that I know I can do well at and look for opportunities to cash five figure ($10,000+) tickets. One ticket can make a meet, just look at my $35,000 score at Del Mar last year from $148. I’m stressing this because buying one day does not mean you will win, but it will tap into the mind of someone who has had long term, documented success.

Two tiers – Grid and Grid + Tickets

I bet more than most, normally around $400-600/card depending on how confident I am. For that reason, we’ve created two product tiers. The first is simply my grid where you will get the horses that are must use, use on middle tickets, and use on deeper tickets. That will not include my exact plays and will be at a lower price point. The second option will include the grid as well as my tickets I am planning on playing that day. Both will be available either the night before or morning of the races and will be updated due to scratches. Make sure to play tickets with-in your budget.  The idea is to look at monthly results.  If I am playing a $5 ticket, you can always play it for $0.50 or $2 to limit exposure.

This is multi-race focused

I’m ALL about the big score so I’m mainly playing Pick 4’s and Pick 5’s. You can use the selections for single races bets and I will call some out in my bets section, but my goal is to hit big-time multi-race scores.
