The “New” Top Ten Turf Begins this Friday

A  change in format will begin this Friday, August 22nd. 

The Top Ten list of horses will be published at 9:00 pm the night before the day’s races. 

Then there will be an update on the actual race day at 11:00 am that will list the top three plays for the day.

This update will be sent by e-mail only. E-mail signup will be easily available.

Please note that the update on Friday’s races at Del Mar will be at 1:00 pm to reflect the 4:00 pm post time.

I am certain that you will find some valuable betting information for the Del Mar Races.

See you at 9:00 pm tomorrow night!
