Horses with Best Chance to Win

With a competitive field, anything can happen. Below are some options to consider for winners, exactas, or trifectas in the Runhappy Del Mar Futurity.

Raging Torrent 5-1

Raging Torrent is coming off of a third place result at the Best Pal Stakes, which is not too bad considering the horse that won the race is the heavy favorite here. He is a solid choice if you are considering either a trifecta or exacta pick, but might not have enough to win.

Rothschild 5-1

Rothschild is faster than he appears, especially with his recent fifth place result at the DMR MSW back in July of this year. While that is not the best momentum, he has had plenty of time to train and should do well here.

Mary’s Boy Bolt 15-1

Mary’s Boy Bolt might be coming off of a victory at the end of August in the DMR MSW, but this might not be enough momentum to land a win here. This would be a great long shot pick to win, which would be perfect for his career.
