This Saturday, Del Mar Racetrack in California will play host to the 2022 Pacific Classic. There’s a lot on the line for the 6 horses competing with the Pacific Classic being a G1 race with a million dollar prize pool and a ‘win and you’re in’ spot in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
Flightline is a huge favorite with odds of 1-5, but there are other quality horses with plenty of wins under their belt this season in the race that will be looking to earn the upset victory.
In this article I will provide the morning line odds for the 2022 Pacific Classic and also give you my winner pick for the race. At the bottom of the page you will also find a simple 3 step guide to getting your bets placed on the Pacific Classic this Saturday if you live in the USA.
2022 Pacific Classic Odds
Here are the morning line odds (and post positions) for this years Pacific Classic. The odds will change throughout race day depending on the amount of money that comes in on each horse.
- Extra Hope 30-1
- Country Grammer 4-1
- Royal Ship 8-1
- Express Train 12-1
- Flightline 1-5
- Stilleto Boy 20-1
I think the four horses with 12-1 and shorter odds are legitimate contenders to win the Pacific Classic. This should be an exciting race with several contenders with the ability to get the win even with Flightline as a huge favorite.
I’m taking Express Train at odds of 12-1. He was the favorite heading into last years Pacific Classic, but had a disappointing race finishing 6th. He then finished 3rd at the Awesome Again Stakes before winning three straight races include the Santa Anita Handicap at the same 1 1/4 mile distance that will be run at the Pacific Classic.
I believe Express Train is a legitimate contender to get the win on Saturday, so at these odds I’m willing to take him to win.
Play: Express Train 12-1
Here’s a look at Express Train winning the Santa Anita Handicap last March.
