As usual we are met with another difficult Pick 4 sequence today but one that is doable and if the stars align could pay off nicely for us. I am going with my normal 3X3X3X3 strategy today.

 

In the 1st leg today race 5 #5 I’m Not Bullish is an apt name for the stock market these days. He failed as the favorite last out for ice cold trainer Jacobson but O’Neill claimed. Blinkers off worth another chance. Prat rides #4 Mr. Congrats a firster with slow workouts but Prat rides for a trainer also racing another in her who I don’t think will appreciate the extra distance despite Gonzalez riding. The jockey/trainer are 5/14 so if you have the coin feel free to add. A price horse that jumps out is #8 Sanitation for a trainer/jockey winning 29% and a fast workout last week adds to the appeal. The favorite wins this race 44% of the time but price horses over 10-1 have won 12%.

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.
