DEL MAR OPENS   WEDNESDAY

(Where the Turf Meets the Surf)

ARROGATE RUNNING IN SAN DIEGO HANDICAP ON SATURDAY

DEL  MAR.jpg

This is prime time for simulcast horse racing. Del Mar opens its 78th Summer Meet tomorrow (Wednesday, July 19) and Saratoga opens this Friday, July 21.

Del Mar is running 5 days per week (dark on Monday and Tuesday except Closing Day on Monday, September 4).  Post times are 4:00PM daily except Friday. Post time on Friday is 6:00PM, but for Friday, August 25 and Friday September 1 it is 5:30PM.

There is a $300,000 Guaranteed Late 50 Cent Pick 4 every weekday. On Friday and Saturday, the guarantee is $600,000.

The feature races this weekend at Del Mar are the $250,000 Eddie Read Stakes (G2) and the $200,000 San Diego Handicap (G2) on Saturday and the $200,000 San Clemente (G2) on Sunday.

With Arrogate in the field, most of the attention will be focused on the San Diego Handicap. Arrogate, after losing his debut, has won 6 straight races. In his last 4 races, he has “managed” to win the Travers Stakes, the Breeders’ Cup Classic, the Pegasus World Cup and the Dubai World Cup.
