Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for Sunday 8/28

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Sunday.

Del Mar Race No. 3 (6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT)

#10 Grazen Touch (7-2 ML)

Jockey Edwin Maldonado has been exceptional in turf sprints at this Del Mar meeting, and he'll look to get Grazen Touch over the hump after a good, second-place finish last time. Outside post positions (8-10) have won 5 of the 9 maiden turf sprints at the meet so far, so don't be afraid of the draw. Win bet.

Del Mar No. Race 7 (8:03 p.m. ET/5:03 p.m. PT)

#7 Opening Buzz (4-1 ML)

Disastrous start last time put this one in make-up mode. Look for a bounce-back as trainer Jonathan Wong has been Del Mar's hottest barn since Aug. 10 with 7 winners at a 26% strike rate. Turf workout indicates some ability on the surface after racing on dirt and synthetic tracks prior. Win bet.
