Racing! TVG has a real good Sunday, especially betting Del Mar

Hello, my name is John Cherwa and welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as TVG’s prognosticators start to turn it around.

Some of you have thought I’ve been a hater when it comes to TVG. Well, that’s just not the case. In fact, on Sunday, I praised their coverage of Del Mar’s dead-heat debacle. (If I have my way, you’ll be reading more about that in the future.)

Last week, the best backup in the world, Eric (Manny) Sondheimer, gave them a week off, but I’m back to chronicle their picks.

And it was a good day for the folks at TVG.

Let’s start with Simon Bray, who hit the late pick four at Del Mar, and if not for an errant pick five, would have done even better. He had a profit of $62.65, all on the strength of the sixth through ninth races.

And Dave Weaver also hit the late pick four after going four for five in the pick five, losing the last race with a single, who finished second. Now that’s impressive. Take away his seed money and he won $50.65.

Finally, Rich Perloff, the guy who I want to have the nuclear launch codes because of his even, steady, professional manner, won $39.87 on a pick four at Aqueduct after his investment.

I do need to say, Matt Carothers, who sounds like the smartest guy in the room, had a terrible day, losing $160. However, I blame his bosses who make him do $2 pick sixes and other unwinnable bets.

OK, the countdown.

Simon Bray, betting Del Mar, won $62.65.

Dave Weaver, betting Del Mar, won $50.65.

Rich Perloff, betting Aqueduct, won $39.87.

Jeff Bratt, betting Woodbine, lost $12.

Dawn Lupul, betting Woodbine, lost $16.

Personable Matt Dinerman, betting Golden Gate, lost $20. (OK, why the personable? Earlier this year when I went up to GG to do a story on Frank Mirahmadi, Matt was one of the most likable people I’ve ever met. The Queen installs a Sir, I install a personable. Notice the lower case, don’t want to get carried away.)

Nick Hines, betting an impossible trifecta of Churchill Downs, Golden Gate and Turf Paradise, lost $20.

Matt Carothers, betting Aqueduct and Gulfstream, lost $160.

Del Mar review

Who says there’s a horse for the course, especially when the horse hasn’t run the course? Well, that’s what happened Sunday in the $100,000 Betty Grable Stakes at seven furlongs for fillies and mares 3 and up.

Majestic Heat, who had never before sullied her hooves in battle in the dirt in 14 tries, showed she could handle the softness of the turf by winning the race in a blow-out 3 1/4 lengths.

“I’ve always been interested to run her on the dirt, she’s always worked well on it,” trainer Richard Mandella said. “The last race [Goldikova Stakes] she kind of ran flat and looked like she mailed it in. She came out of it and looked so good, I thought I’d always wanted to try her on the dirt and this was a good distance for her. She [raced] on it pretty good.”

Majestic Heat paid $9.20, $4.40 and $3.20. Barbara Beatrice returned $6.60 and $4.20, while Late ‘N Left paid $4.00 for third. Flavien Prat was the winning jockey.

Trainers Doug O’Neill and Peter Miller each won three races on Sunday.

FLIP THE COIN JAN dueled three deep, kicked clear off the rail on the second turn and drew off under a moderate hand ride and a long hold late while drifting in. CROATIAN vied for command between horses, angled to the rail nearing the stretch and was clearly second best. SHACKALOV stalked outside a rival, split horses on the second turn, angled to the inside for the stretch and held third. IT'S A NEW YEAR dwelt at the break to be away well behind the field, saved ground on the first turn, came out on the backstretch, went three deep on the second turn and four wide into the stretch and bested the others. CHARLIE COWDEN broke a bit slowly, chased outside a rival, continued outside on the second turn and three wide into the stretch and weakened. ALPHADAR settled inside then a bit off the rail, was in a bit tight leaving the second turn then angled to the inside and did not rally. ARNO'S MANE MAN saved ground stalking the pace, dropped back on the second turn, came out some in the stretch and gave way. BIG AND LOUD had speed between horses then dueled a bit off the rail, fell back while lugging out leaving the second turn, drifted out in the stretch, gave way and was eased in the final furlong. The stewards conducted an inquiry into the start before ruling IT'S A NEW YEAR was the cause of his own trouble.
