Beat Ray: There Is No ‘I’ In Team Rotondo

It’s been a fun couple of months but all good things must end.

This weekend marks the final edition of the Beach Boss competition as the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club meet concludes on the traditional Labor Day finale on Monday.

Today’s Beat Ray challenger is Peter Rotondo, the vice president of media and entertainment for the Breeders’ Cup, which will be returning to the seaside track for the two-day championships in 2021. More importantly, he’s a member of Team Rotondo, whose exploits at the betting windows at various racetracks were chronicled in the cable television reality series “Horseplayers” a few years ago.

I imagine Peter is calling in all favors from his teammates, including his father, Peter Rotondo Sr., the senior member of the team, to sift through Sunday’s contest race, the Grade 2 Del Mar Derby, in hopes of finding the winning play. He’s not too proud to ask for help, since there is no “I” in Team Rotondo.

Peter will join fellow handicapper Michelle Yu and me on Sunday at 11 a.m. PT on Del Mar’s social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube) to handicap this challenging mile and one-eighth turf race that drew a dozen entries (though No. 7, Warren’s Showtime, one of three fillies entered against males, has been scratched). Tune in to hear our handicapping strategies and bets for the contest.

Beat Ray Everyday is an online contest offered every racing day of the Del Mar summer meet. It’s free to play and you can sign up here. Bet a mythical $100 each day on the selected contest race in win, place or show bets on any horse or horses.  At the end of the meet, the player with the highest bankroll from those wagers becomes the “Beach Boss” and wins two VIP tickets to the 2021 Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar. Other prizes are available to top finishers and anyone who finishes ahead of me is entered in a drawing for even more prizes.
