We start today’s sequence on the Hillside course and despite the fact the favorite is only 3-1 I am only going to go two deep and I am not using said favorite! Instead I am using the #8 Mysterious Miracle with Prat riding and #4  Boat Drinks. Miracle is a horse that is a temping single and for those looking for a cheap ticket this is the one. Her debut saw her stuck on the rail with only one option, gun it. She did and she tired in the stretch. She now moves out to a perfect post position on the Hill with speed and should own the race. The second choice in here, Boat Drinks, has experience on the Hill and that always counts, especially for horses like this who have come so close so often here. From 4 Hill starts she has three seconds and a third. The favorite here is #1 Dial a Date and the rail on the Hill and the 4 month layoff means I’ll watch one.

 

 

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $12 with horses listed in preference.

8,4

8,9

4,7

9,10,6 (add 12 from AE)

 

 

 

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.
