Going Global will try to go a perfect 5-for-5 since coming to the United States when she leaves the starting gate in the 2021 San Clemente Stakes on Saturday at Del Mar in Del Mar, Calif. The Phil D'Amato trainee is the 4-5 morning-line favorite in the San Clemente Stakes odds. Post time is 9:36 p.m. ET.
Before you make any San Clemente Stakes picks, you NEED to see what racing insider Bob Weir has to say.
Based in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Weir has been handicapping and following horse racing since reading Andy Beyer's landmark handicapping book "Picking Winners" in the late 1980s. Weir is highly invested in the Beyer Speed Figure, a number assigned to every race run by a horse that measures how fast the horse ran. He uses the figure as the backbone of his handicapping. In fact, thanks to his proficiency with speed figures and top-tier handicapping, he landed one of just eight spots on Beyer's figure-making team in 2017, a position he holds to this day.
Weir's methodology has produced multiple five-figure days. In 2014, he hit a $60,000 Pick 6 at Del Mar. The following year, he nailed a $31,000 Pick 6 at Gulfstream Park. In 2016 and 2017, Weir qualified for the prestigious National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas!
Last year, his first for SportsLine, Weir was on fire. In June, Weir hit a $2 superfecta in the Ogden Phipps Stakes that paid a whopping $1,039. He crushed the exacta and trifecta in the Forego Stakes in August for $1,134.50. He hit the late Pick 4 at Belmont Park on June 18, June 19, June 25, July 2 and July 5, with the June 25 score returning a whopping $2,159.50.
This year, he has hit the exacta in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, Tampa Bay Derby and Peter Pan Stakes, the trifecta in the Risen Star Stakes and Blue Grass Stakes and the superfecta in the Belmont Stakes, with the Tampa Bay Derby score returning $1,414! Those are just some of his scores in 2021.
Now, he has handicapped the San Clemente Stakes field, made his picks and constructed his bets.
One shocker: Weir is high on Tetragonal, the fourth choice on the morning line at 8-1. "Tetragonal returned to her 2-year-old form in her last race, a win stalking a slow pace," Weir tells SportsLine. Weir has Tetragonal ranked second in the race and will be using the horse on top of some superfecta tickets.
However, Weir's top pick is a horse who "continues to improve." He also is high on a double-digit long shot who has a "chance for a piece at a good price." Weir is including these horses in his 2021 San Clemente Stakes bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
