Del Mar “Bing Saturday” Picks – 11/12/16


HRS Del Mar LogoOne of my favorite time’s of year is Opening Day at Del Mar. Even better, when I can celebrate Opening Day twice a year!  With the “Bing Meeting” happening every fall since the closure of Hollywood Park, Del Mar has been running great race meeting down where the surf meets the turf.  We get to hear the great Trevor Denman once again and see some great racing on one of the best turf courses in the nation.  So each weekend this “Bing Meeting,” I will have selections for the Saturday card, much like I did for all of the summer meeting.  So check out  my full card selections, including my best bet and live longshot of the day, and enjoy the racing from one of America’s best race courses!

Race: Selections:
1 1) Klondike Creek 2) Dark Energy 3) Bedeviled
2 1) Call to Congrats 2) C.C. Zipp 3) That’s a Lady
3 1) Princess Julia 2) Sabi Sands 3) Go On Mary
4 1) Curlin Rules 2) Little Scotty 3) Mittersill

Best Bet of the Day: Klondike Creek (Race 1) Live Longshot of the Day: Exemplar (Race 7)
One of my favorite angles at Del Mar is lone speed on turf.  It isn’t the easiest thing to do at Del Mar, but he is lightly raced and showed up last time out in his first try on turf.  He has the ability to move up and has a better resume than most of the field, even with only two starts.  If he gets loose on the lead, this son of Gio Ponti will be tough to catch. Exemplar is not one to be ignored and has shown the ability to run very well against these types at Del Mar.  He was able to get a win last time out at Santa Anita in what is becoming a very live race.  He needs to pick up some pace up front to have a good chance to close, but looks like a horse that can close to the front and pay very well.
