Breeders’ Cup 2017 might be in the books, but the fall racing action continues at Del Mar, and there are plenty of money-making opportunities on the horizon. Here are three live longshots to consider for Sunday's card. 
Del Mar Race 3 - Claiming $8,000 - 6f - Post Time 4:33 p.m. ET
Live Longshot: #4 Lambo Luxx (8-1) struggled at the $12,500 level in three of his last five starts. If you remove those races you are left with back-to-back $8,000 victories on July 2 and July 26. He switches from 5-pound apprentice rider Roman to 7-pound apprentice Fuentes and should offer value.  
Top Win Contenders: #9 Pray Hard#3 Airfoil (5-2), #8 Madelyn’s Wild Max (6-1). 
Wagering Strategy #1 ($20) $4 to win, $6 to place, $10 to show #4 
Wagering Strategy #2 ($30) $12 to win #4, $6 Quinella 9/3-4-8 ($18)
Wagering Strategy #3 ($40) $10 to win #4, 
$6 Quinella 9/3-4-8 ($18). 50 cent Trifecta 3-8-9/ALL/4 ($12)  
Del Mar Race 5 - Claiming $40,000, 5T - Post Time 5:34pm ET
Live Longshot: #8 Bourque (8-1) owns running style versatility and was competitive in both $40,000 sprints. He gets pace to chase in the paper race and can land a share at the very least.  
Top Win Contenders: #2 Aotearoa (4-1), #3 General Ike (5-2), #1 Secreto Primero (3-1), #10 Zuri Chop (2-1). 
Wagering Strategy #1 ($20) $4 to win, $6 to place, $10 to show #8
Wagering Strategy #2 ($30) $12 to win #8, 50 cent Trifecta 2-3-10/1-8/1-2-3-8-10 ($9), 50 cent Trifecta 2-3-10/1-2-3-8-10/1-8 ($9)
Wagering Strategy #3 ($40) $8 to win #8, $4 Quinella 2/1-3-8-10 ($16), 50 cent Trifecta 1-2-3-10/ALL/8 ($16)
Del Mar Race 8 - Betty Grable Stakes - Post Time 7:02pm ET
Live Longshot: #5 Cuddle Alert (5-1) typically offers value and frequently outruns her odds. The 2-time local winner might be competitive in this spot. 
Top Win Contenders: #3 Bad Ju Ju (4-1), #4 How About Zero (3-1), #2 Late 'n Left (8-1), #7 Majestic Heat (7-2).
Wagering Strategy #1 ($20) $4 to win, $6 to place, $10 to show #5
Wagering Strategy #2 ($30) $10 to win #5, $5 Quinella 3/2-4-5-7 ($20)
Wagering Strategy #3 (40) $12 to win #5, $4 Quinella 3/2-4-5-7 ($16), 50 cent Trifecta 2-3-4-7/ALL/5 ($12)
