Amount Cashed:


Thursday's 4th race (3:40pm PT) from Del Mar is a $16,000 claiming affair for fillies and mares which have never won two races. They will be dashing six furlongs on Polytrack. 

#8 Vindicated Ruler (7-2) ran well in all four Maiden NoCal sprints and graduated when dropped in for a tag off a layoff at Santa Rosa Aug. 4. Morey excels first off the claim and leading rider Bejarano is 2-for-7 with this outfit recently.  

Play Thursday’s Del Mar games at DerbyWars.com.  

#7 Disco Lemonade (5-1) graduated in a BHP synthetic sprint for O'Neill July 5 and was claimed out of that heat by profitable, high % trainer Bonde. She owns early-pressing versatility. 

#9 Serious (4-1) won her local Polytrack sprint bow last summer and has not raced on synthetic since. She is back in for a tag and will probably flash speed.

#3 Twirlybird (10-1) was nabbed out of her last by Baltas (2 wins Wed.) and aggressive pilot Maldonado hops abaord. She removes the hood and figures in the hunt throughout.

The Plays:

$18 to win #8

$1 Trifecta Key 8/3-7-9 ($6)

$1 Trifecta 3-7-9/8/3-7-9 ($6)

Wow it is called Thinking Fast, Thinking Slow by Kahneman..Get it always confused with another text.
MOST decisions are made with LESS informaton than more they show in a variety of situations
Thank you!
Go out and purchase the book BLINK by Malcolm Gladwell and then follow it up with Learning Fast Learning Slow by Nobel prize winning economist Khaneman to understand how flawed out thinking can be if we not aware of the noise in the machine.."Don't think BLINK" is a great mantra.
yes disregard over 90% of it since it is to the degree of watchfulness of the chartman and many are superficial at best
Maybe L.C or F.R. or M.W. would know what to do with trip data.
Trouble answering?
me and my shadow, walking down the avenue...:Little slow around the house this evenig?
No set measure, that makes sense, but is it even measured and entered into your equations? Another race line ignored? Many must be 4yos before enough data exists.
Often that troubled line, being tainted, is not specifically utilized in the overall evaluation unless it was run agasint a tough 4f pace
One acesses trouble individually...If it occurs later in the race, it is far less relevant...Stadied means nothing usually. Not set measure for any specific trouble
A truism, but trip is quantified how?>> TEN episodes excluding the false paced races as you've noted before? Little late to the game, eh?
Pace is a challenge that takes place from flag fall to the wire
THe animal gives us TEN episodes to see hat they did anaginst varied pace pressure....I look at the stiff challenges and how they did with them.
So how do YOU quantify it for your purposes?
peopl OVERDO the effect of the trip.
Do you really disregard *trip* as *noise* when making your pace% #s for a horse's performance?
All good factors to be interpreted >> too bad ALL punters are interchangeable journeymen {kinda like jockeys?} incapable of doing so.
Also TWO chart callers can differentiate the trouble from steadied, to checked, to taken up, completely differently.
Trouble is NEVER equivalent: two horses break tardily but one is in a field without a true pace setter and the other has a monster on the front end..NOT equivalent in the least
