Horse betting at Del Mar is always exciting and one of the better races of the meet is the Bing Crosby Handicap.
This year’s race will be on August 8th with a number of horses having a chance to win in horse betting. Horse racing action should be great on the Bing Crosby Handicap at online sports betting sites.
Horse betting odds should include Delta Storm who won his 2009 debut in the Robert Kerlan Memorial Handicap over six furlongs at Hollywood Park.
There are only two Grade 1 Stakes for sprinters at Del Mar and one of those is the Bing Crosby. Delta Storm has won his last two starts and trainer Mike Mitchell says the horse is ready for the Grade 1 horse betting race. "I thought if there was a time to run in the Bing Crosby now would be the time to do it," he said, "He was a good horse last year. I called Mike [House] and said, ‘We’ll run him for $100,000. If we don’t lose him, we’ll kick him out.’ He was just tired. He showed it." Delta Storm won 4 of 8 starts in horse racing since that race. Mitchell has the big picture in mind for Delta Storm in horse racing. With the Breeders’ Cup coming up later this year at Santa Anita, Mitchell is getting his horse ready for a possible run in one of those races.
Another major contender in horse betting for the Bing Crosby Handicap will be In Summation who won his season debut in the $60,000 John McSorley Stakes on the turf at Monmouth Park. Sports betting info tells us that he was ridden by Joe Bravo and got a nice win in horse betting for trainer Christophe Clement. In Summation ran last in the Sunshine Millions Sprint horse racing event at Santa Anita in January. In Summation won the 2007 Crosby and finished second in the race last year in horse betting.
