Bet On Horse Racing - Hot Properties

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 7/30/2012 6:03:26 PM

There are two things that are hard to hold onto at Del Mar this meeting, hundred-dollar bills, and claiming horses in any given barn and online sports betting players should be aware of which horses have been the most coveted.

Through the first 6 days of racing at the famous beach venue, 52 horses were claimed for a total of $1,294,500 and some of those hot properties had a ton of suitors.

First consider Mr. Candy Bar. He was entered opening day of the meet and had not raced since May at Golden Gate where he finished a close sixth. Despite the fact that this runner only cost 2 grand as a yearling, 8 trainers put in claims for him and the winner of the shake was Mike Machowsky.

When multiple trainers try to claim a horse, the process is settled by putting pills, or numbers in a bottle and which ever trainer has the corresponding winning number, gets the horse.

Claims must be signed, sealed and delivered in the racing office 15 minutes before post time.

Candy Bar excels on grass but needs distance to thrive. If he can find a 9-furlong grass run, he could pop at a price next out.

In the seventh race the same day, Private Bounty did you one better as 9 trainers had claims in the office for this runner.

He had been claimed twice since April and one of the reasons is that he brings back checks. Bill Spawr lost him and Vann Belvoir won the claim. The gelding has run well in defeat at Del Mar in the past and he has a nice turn of late foot. A $20,000 claimer going 7 furlongs would suit him to a T.

On July 20, Your Special Day had just that as 6 conditioners tried to claim her. James Cassidy lost her and Rafael Becerra won the shake. Becerra doesn’t saddle a lot of horses these days but he learned under one of the best California trainers of all time, Gary Jones and this runner will fit on any surface but will need help up front.

She was only a nose out of sportsbook earning black type in a stakes last year and the feeling is her best days are ahead of her.

When a sharp trainer claims a horse from another sharp trainer there is upside all the way around. That is the case with Itssultryinthecape. Pete Eurton lost her on the 20th and Justin Evans led her back to his own shedrow.

Eurton has popped at 24% this year alone and this gelding had been in the money in 4 of 5 starts this year. Proven against $25,000 claimers, this pro has natural speed but doesn’t need the lead to win.

Eurton lost him for $8,000 so don’t be shocked if Evans runs him up the claiming ladder, maybe even entering him for $20,000.

Evans has not trained for a long time but he knows what he is doing. He has only saddled a little over 4,000 horses but has won 20% of his starts and 51% have been in the money. As a new face in Southern California, Itssultryinthecape has live longshot ridden all over him the next time he shows in the entries.

Online betting players should follow the claim roster on the Del Mar site and try to smoke out some winners.

Good luck.
