All Dressed Up for Del Mar Opener


A huge field for the traditional Del Mar lid-lifter, the one-mile, grassy Oceanside for 3-year-olds, but a group loaded with potential.

Right now, the best of this division is in New York but SoCal can begin catching up right here. Having written that, we're going to try to keep things simple in the 14-horse herd.

We've landed on Dressed in Hermes, a course lover (2) 1-0-1 and distance specialist (5) 3-0-1. In fact, all his career wins have come at this trip.

Suited by dynamics and drawn outside with Mike Smith, he should be able to work out the trip he will need to score. He ran his fastest race on the Thoro-Graph scale here last season, and he's dropping out of the very live G3 Pennine Ridge at Belmont Park six weeks ago.

Taking Dressed in Hermes to win, no price restrictions, and boxing an exacta with potential price shot Ebadan.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2074

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 622-405

Amount Wagered: $4,148.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,235.50

Seeking Value in Today’s Belmont Feature


There is little question that if Dad's Caps (4-5) runs back to his last effort, he will win this. But his form overall is one of an in-and-outer, and at early line odds, we're out.

What Danny's Deceiver (6-1) lacks in 6-furlong form he makes up for in his affinity for Big Sandy. He owns a big late engine and with the promise of a contested pace and hot-riding Joel Rosario in the boot, value is in the offing in today's Belmont Pak feature.

Taking Danny's Deceiver to win at 7-2 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite.

Pressure on Irad to Make the Right Call in Belmont Feature


Today's featured 4th at Belmont is a pretty trappy affair; six horses and only a guess from what direction the early pace in coming from.

Clearly, Edgar Prado will try to break Tejana (2-1) sharpy from the gate, given her pole position.

With the sharp Doinwhatshelikes (10-1), owning a modicum of speed and with a position directly to the favorite's outside.

The hope here is that Irad Ortiz can sense that he needs to be within range with Literata (4-1)--enough position to make best use of his filly's late kick without leaving her too much to do.

Taking Literata to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with promising stretchout Tejana.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2072

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 622-403

Amount Wagered: $4,144.00 [$2 to win only]
