Skunked like Pepe' le Pew, we were, yesterday. Our closest coronary was when we had the lead in the 6th race with our 31-1 top choice just strides before the wire, and got nabbed. Dems da breaks, and we look to close out the week on a winning note today.…
Well, while we didn't "shock the world" yesterday, we did show some solid signs of turning the corner with a 10: 2-4-1 record on the day. ( One of those 2nds was the olllll' "Led before the wire/2nd at the wire/led after the wire" tricks. )  Favorites continue to come…
Uh ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......we're officially in a slump. Just one winner in the last two days. But like I've said before, you have to go with the ebbs and tides of this game. For example : We're still hiiting at a 22.9% rate. about a point and a half ahead of our…

I had said at the onset, that I thought Keeneland would have it playing a bit slow, benefitting closers, as they…
Great day of racing yesterday ( just not for us ! ). We started out by winning the opener on an amended selection ( $12 ), and caught the cold exacta ( $24 ) as well, but that was pretty much it for the day. Our bad beat was when…
Boy, are we happy to be back. Been going out of my mind for the last month, and anyone that knows me, knows I don't sit still very well. Thanks to all for the Facebook and Twitter messages and by all means, keep them coming, as well as the commentary…
Well folks, the big days just don't come like this too often. Yesterday was a PERFECT example of how taking a break as a gambler ( or in anything else for that matter ) can clear the head and lead to good decisions. After a month sabbatical, we came back…

Kevin Cox's Del Mar Selections & Analysis - 9/3

Well, another sign that summer is escaping us...the leaves are falling down on a soon to be winterized Saratoga Race Track ( squirrels are foraging like crazy up here, so we may be in store for another brutal winter ), and now Del Mar is wrapping things up as well. After…
Boy, this is a thoroughly inconsistent meeting @ Del Mar, after a nice day on Friday, we were blanked yesterday, and about the only constant there, is that more horses continue to be eased--2 yesterday, and one Friday. Gotta be near the 40 mark, I presume. Had a nice end…
Decent day for us at Del Mar yesterday, as we had a $35 winner, a $7 winner, a nice 10-1 second, and a couple of decent "unders" as well. Also, BOTH of our "Beatable Favorites" lost, so ONCE AGAIN, we are ahead of the game in a cool category. Been…
