Del Mar’s Bing Crosby Season continues on Thanksgiving Thursday and I have included 2023 Red Carpet Stakes picks below. The Grade 3 event for fillies and mares has a purse of $100,000 and the eight entrants will be traveling 1 3/8 miles on the turf course. It is the 6th race on Nov. 23.
Red Carpet Stakes Picks & Final Time Ratings
Oakhurst is one of three entrants for trainer Phil D’Amato. She won a turf route at Del Mar on July 23 and owns competitive Today’s Racing Digest Final Time Ratings. She reconnects with Hector Berrios and he is a quality turf pilot.
Linda’s Gift might be the controlling speed and she must be considered based on that fact alone. I don’t know if she wants to go this far or if she is this good, but this pace puzzler is full of closers and Tiago Pereira almost has to put her on the lead.
