Track announcer Larry Collmus makes a brief stopover in Del Mar, where he called both the summer and fall meets last year in the absence of Trevor Denman and will return Nov. 5-6 to call this year’s Breeders’ Cup world championships for NBC Sports.
Collmus didn’t come from his New Jersey home to the seaside town just for its world famous fish tacos or Del Mar-garitas. He’s doing some work for TVG and was wrangled into being guest handicapper in the latest edition of the Beat Ray Beach Boss Contest, a free-to-enter competition where players wager a mythical $100 each day during the summer meet. When the season ends on Labor Day, the player with the biggest bankroll wins two VIP tickets to the Breeders’ Cup. Details and registration can be found here.
Collmus joined TV host and racing analyst Michelle Yu and Paulick in a live stream on Youtube on Friday to analyze Saturday’s contest race, the 1 3/8-mile CTT and TOC Stakes on the turf. We won’t say who Collmus picked to win this week’s race, but suffice to say he’s loyal to a Jersey compatriot in the jockeys room.
Watch their analysis and find out who they like in the CTT and TOC Stakes.
