Looking at the Saturday Del Mar charts this was one of the worst dead rail days we have seen for awhile. I didn't get there until the third so I missed the solid Baltas runner in the opener getting clear moving to rail then finishing last. Gamine, Jackie's Warrior were both beaten before they turned in. I was all set to make the (valid) point that in the old days of TG handicapping, a horse off a pair of negative numbers and a ship like Jackie Warrior would have been a must bet against.. Add in end of the long year. I scoped that part out pre-race but now I don't know if it was just the dead rail as opposed to the pair of crushingly fast tops. We, who are passionate about this game, deserve better than dead rails on Championship days.
