We were looking great going into the last leg of the Pick 4 yesterday with a couple of outsiders and the favorite Scandal. Surely, I thought, this time Scandal won’t get disqualified or come from far behind to finish second. Alas, it was the same old, same old as Scandal raced to finish second by a nose yet again. It’s one thing to get 3 out of 4 but its another when you miss the payoff when the best horse in the race is hampered. A pick 6 carryover today should ensure another healthy Pick 4 Pool. Today’s sequence is not an easy one either with no sure singles with 3 of the 4 legs having the favorite be 7/2 or higher!

When I have three horses selected in a Pick 4 or Pick 5 consider them for Trifecta boxes and for superfecta boxes use the 3 selections with the highest priced horse with good form or top tier jockeys riding, especially if they give a price. Rolling Pick 3 and doubles using selections.
