The Grade 2 Del Mar Mile helps anchor Saturday's big Pacific Classic day card at Del Mar. The field has drawn a highly competitive bunch of older turf milers.

We turned to the Betmix Angler online handicapping database for guidance and discovered that 20% of the past 56 8-furlong graded turf stakes at the Pacific shore oval fell to the horse ranking first in the Avg. of Last 3 Turn Time handicapping factor.

The 12 winners in the sample have generated a positive $5.00 Win Return and nearly 50% of the contenders have factored in the trifecta with the Show Return ($16.00) actually exceeding the Win Return.
