Bernier: How I'd play Del Mar for Sunday, July 17


Opening weekend at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club is a horseplayer’s signal that summer has officially begun (regardless of the June 20 “official” start to the summer season). Sunday represents day three of the summer meeting at Del Mar, and it’s highlighted by the Grade 2 Eddie Read – a nine furlong turf event that features one of the saltiest fields Southern California has seen this year. I’ll look to play the late double on Saturday, linking the Eddie Read with the finale, a $16,000 claiming event for non-winners of two races lifetime.
