DEL MAR'S BETTING MENU




Del Mar’s betting menu, which last year offered 14 different wagers for seaside investors, will grow by three new bets this summer when the 36-day session gets off and running on Wednesday, July 18.

The track’s bet roster, which starts with the traditional win, place and show wagers and expands out to several five- and six-horse combinations, now will tack on the following trio of offerings during the shore oval’s seven-week stand:

An early Pick Four starting on Race 2 daily that will be a .50¢ minimum wager.
A late Pick Five offered on the last five races daily. It, too, will be a .50¢ minimum bet.
A Win, Place, Show Parlay available for a minimum of two races and a maximum of six. It is a $2 bet.
In addition to its new Early Pick Four, the track will continue to offer its usual Pick Four on the last four races on the day’s card, a bet that has proven to be one of the most popular in the country and regularly registers $1-million-plus pools on weekends. The late Pick Five also will be similar to the track’s early Pick Five held on the day’s initial five events. And the Win, Place, Show Parlay will be presented using the standard single-bet W-P-S takeout of 15.43% instead of a multi-bet takeout that goes above 20%.

Del Mar will continue with its $2 Pick Six on all racing days, along with the “Single Ticket Jackpot” addition to it that the track introduced during its 2016 fall season. Under the “Jackpot” rules, a separate pool accumulates alongside the regular one if nobody hits the bet as a lone ticket holder. This allows for a large separate pool to grow even in the case of a “hit’ on the Pick Six by two or more players. The “Jackpot” pool often reaches six figures in fairly rapid order and can be expected to do so throughout the stand.

And, as it did last summer, Del Mar will schedule two “mandatory payouts” on the “Jackpot” pool:  first on TVG Pacific Classic Day (Saturday, August 18), then on Closing Day, Monday, September 3. That means that a Pick Six winner on either of those dates would share not only in the regular pool, but the full “Jackpot” pool besides. Further, consolation winners on those days also would share in the “Jackpot” payout.

“We’ve got something for everyone this year,” said Del Mar’s Director of Mutuels, Bill Navarro. “And with the updated tax wagering rules (installed at the end of 2017) that have significantly reduced IRS reporting and withholding now firmly in place and expediting betting on all fronts, we’re expecting a fine summer at the pari-mutuel windows all around.”

The full array of Del Mar bets is as follows:  $2 win, place and show (all races); $1 Exacta (all); $2 Quinella (all); .50¢ Trifecta (all); $2 Rolling Doubles (all except last); $1 Rolling Pick 3 (all except last two); $1 Superfecta (.10¢ minimum – all); $1 Place Pick All (starts w/Race 1 or 2); $1 Super High 5 (last); $2 Pick Six (last six); .50¢ Players’ Pick 5 (first five and last five); .50¢ Pick 4 (Races 2 thru 5 and last four), and $2 Win-Place-Show Parlay (all races but last).

Racing will be conducted on a Wednesday through Sunday basis throughout the stand with the lone exception of the Labor Day Monday closer. First post daily will be 2 p.m., with the exceptions of Fridays when starting times shift to 4 p.m. (with the exceptions of the final two Fridays – 8/24 and 8/31) – when first post will be 3:30 p.m.). Friday’s races run until sunset and are followed by the hugely popular Del Mar Concert Series.

MARLEY'S FREEDOM A BLAME FILLY








But in the $200,000 Great Lady M Stakes (G2), a race she won last year, the First Dude  mare was ahead early in the long Los Alamitos Race Course stretch. A budding star in the female sprint division just happened to be looming on the outside.

After she took up the rear of the five-horse field early in the 6 1/2-furlong sprint, Marley's Freedom was loaded for the stretch under jockey Drayden Van Dyke. Cicero Farms' Blame  filly rallied four wide and gradually pushed past her rival to win by 1 1/2 lengths.

"I ride her with a lot of confidence," Van Dyke said. "The plan was to take her back and make a run, and she gave me a real nice turn of foot. Skye Diamonds fought gamely, but I knew we had her measured."

Marley's Freedom finished the distance in 1:15.00 to win her third straight race and second graded event, following her 7 1/4-length victory in her first start for trainer Bob Baffert, the May 27 Desert Stormer Stakes (G3) at Santa Anita Park.

Skye Diamonds was on the front under jockey Tiago Pereira just after the start as well, but Phantom Proton, who finished second to Marley's Freedom in an optional-claiming allowance April 20, rushed up on the inside to set a pace of :22.09 and :45.42 through a half-mile. Phantom Proton finished third, three lengths behind Skye Diamonds.

Marley's Freedom was 2 1/4 lengths off the lead early and was confidently handled by Van Dyke throughout.

"Drayden knows her," said Mike Marlow, Baffert's assistant for his Los Alamitos string. "We just wanted her to break and then let her relax. I didn't anticipate her being that far back, but that is kind of where she wants to be. He kept her in the clear and rode her like he was on the best horse. She could be a lot of fun the rest of the year. We're off to a good start."

Kentucky Downs
Best of Me came in three-quarters of a length behind Phantom Proton and was followed by Turkish Tabby to complete the order of finish.

Bred in Kentucky by Jack Swain III, out of the Formal Gold mare Relaxing Green, Marley's Freedom has a 5-2-0 record from 11 starts and $353,435 in earnings. She was a $35,000 purchase by Cicero Farms out of the 2015 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Prior to the Desert Stormer, she was trained by Bob Hess Jr.
