Hello, my name is John Cherwa, welcome back to our horse racing newsletter as we welcome Bob Ike to your inbox.
Well, that didn’t take long. First, thanks to all of you volunteered or offered up suggestions as to who could/should do our daily thoroughbred spot play. Lots of great suggestions but we are delighted that veteran Southern California handicapper Bob Ike has agreed to fill that void.
Again, thanks to Jeff Nahill of the San Diego Union-Tribune for helping us as we got this off the ground.
Bob has been my go-to source when it comes to betting and how it all works. Here’s a story I wrote explaining the new IRS signer regulations leading with how Bob and Kurt Hoover of TVG, had the only winning ticket in the pick six on closing day at Santa Anita last year. (click here.) Or another one I wrote about show betting and Bob’s delight in beating the bridge jumpers. (click here.)
I’m confident he knows his stuff because his seat is next to The Times in the Santa Anita press box. Once the races start, he’s a whirlwind of activity creating his own trip notes and I love to watch him replay a race over and over on what might be the only VCR with a TV and picture tube connected to it left in California.
And best of all, over the past two-plus years, he’s answered every one of my dumb questions without making me feel stupid.
He’s a busy guy in that he also is a vice-president and partner in horsebills.com, a one-stop financial resource that allows you to manage your bills in an efficient paperless way. It’s targeted to trainers, consignors and farms, not bettors. It’s free to owners. He also has his own picks site BobIkePicks.com, where you can get his selections for Santa Anita and Del Mar. Los Alamitos, not so much, that’s when rests up for the other meets.
So, welcome aboard.

Del Mar preview
The nine-race card is highlighted by the $100,000 Bob Hope Stakes. It will be the fifth race at 2:30 p.m. and is for 2 year olds. There are four turf races on the card, the first, fourth, sixth and eighth.
The 7-furlong Hope is likely a three-horse race, which makes it competitive as that’s half the field. Run Away is the 8-5 favorite having won four of his five starts. Trainer
The almost co-favorite is Mourinho at 9-5. He runs for
Beautiful Shot is at 5-2, being undefeated in two starts. He is trained by Keith Desormeaux and ridden by Keith’s brother and Hall of Fame jockey Kent. Not sure f this horse has the Exaggerator magic of two years ago but the Desormeaux combination is extremely strong.

Bob Ike’s DM pick of the day
SEVENTH RACE: Ex Box No. 8 Cool Bobby (5-2) with No- #11 All Out Blitz (8-1). Press Exacta 8/11
Cool Bobby tipped his hand first time out with a strong runner-up effort behind a talented Baffert-trained first-time starter. He should fall into a great trip and is strictly the horse to beat. All Out Blitz dueled from the rail in the same race before tiring in mid-stretch but now moves outside, switches to Mike Smith and should improve with a race under his belt.
Bob Ike is a Partner/VP of Horsebills.com and the proprietor of BobIkePicks.com (full-card picks, 3 Best Plays and betting strategy).
Ed Burgart’s LA pick of the day
FOURTH RACE: No. 4 We Have A Favorite (2-1)
The 2-year-old filly was a much-troubled fifth in debut when loaded with run late after veering in to get bumped hard from both sides early. She broke super in prior 12.2 gate drill and has the most upside while only making second career start.
