Somo Bombs: Del Mar and Whitney Day Picks at Saratoga for August 3, 2019

Somo Bombs: Del Mar and Whitney Day Picks at Saratoga for August 3, 2019

Happy Whitney Day! Both Del Mar and Saratoga are absolutely LOADED with tough races and superstars. I’ll be firing pretty hard today as you can see by the tickets.

At Saratoga, I love the late sequence with strong opinions in 3 of the last 4 races even with Thunder Snow coming out of the Whitney. The early part of the card is wide open, especially with the scratch of World of Trouble. This entire card is high risk and high reward.

At Del Mar, we’ve got 10 races so the two Pick 5’s don’t have any overlapping races! There aren’t any clear heavy favorites outside of the first today so if we can string some 4-1 to 10-1’s together then we will see a NICE payout, especially in the late Pick 5.

Yesterday was a day of close calls, 4/5 in both DMR Pick 5’s 3/4 in the DMR Pick 4 and, if the stewards take the 7 down in the last, we cash about $800 off a $5 Pick 4 ticket late at Saratoga. Hopefully the racing luck is with us today!

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.
