Del Mar Top Play: 12-1 Garnisheed Wages in the finale, with emphasis on the secondary slots in exotic bets


>Del Mar / August 31 / Race 11  / 7:05 PDT

At morning line odds of 12-1, Garnisheed Wages looks like a filly who will offer good value come post time.

Garnisheed Wages has made four starts in her career. Her speed figures, beginning with her debut, are 71 72 79 79. These are competitive numbers in this field. Moreover, in her previous starts, Garnisheed Wages has gotten some trips that were far from ideal. In her last start, for example, she was herded outward at the break, and jockey Martin Pedroza immediately took a strong hold and angled her to the rail, where she was left to languish in last place for the bulk of the race.

Two starts back, she found herself in a tough spot around the far turn, but when finally straightened away in the stretch, she displayed a nice turn of foot in the middle of the racetrack.

Our hope today is that Pedroza will take advantage of this perfect post position to save ground around the first turn and then get Garnisheed Wages involved in the race a little bit. After all, in her debut and in her race down the hill, she showed that she is not a one-dimensional deep closer.

Realistically, however, typecasting being what it is, there is a good chance that Garnisheed Wages will be ridden in the same manner today that she was in her last two starts. Therefore, we will use Garnisheed Wages heavily underneath.
