Surf’s up for the biggest day of the 2021 summer race meet at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, Calif., with the Grade 1, $1 million TVG Pacific Classic headlining Saturday’s 11-race program that includes five graded stakes and a mandatory payout in the 20-cent Rainbow Pick 6 where the Jackpot has grown to nearly $1.9 million. The Pick 6 begins at approximately 7:34 p.m. ET with the sixth race.
The Pacific Classic, the 10th race on the card with a 9:33 p.m. ET post time, is also Saturday’s Beat Ray Everyday Beach Boss contest race, and we’ve got the host of the insightful The Matt Bernier Show, from the In the Money Media Network, to analyze this year’s field. Bernier, who you also may know from NBC Sports racing telecasts, joins host and racing analyst Michelle Yu to try and “Beat Ray” as the weekly Beach Boss guest handicapper. Matt and I land on different horses in the Pacific Classic, while the normally contrarian Michelle likes both of our horses’ chances.
Beat Ray Beach Boss Contest is a free-to-enter competition where players wager a mythical $100 each day during the summer meet. When the season ends on Labor Day, the player with the biggest bankroll wins two VIP tickets to the Breeders’ Cup. Details and registration can be found here. It’s not too late to sign up.
Watch their analysis and see who they put their mythical $100 on in the Pacific Classic.
