Its Big Cap Day and that a $1 million Guaranteed Pick 4 awaits us! My Pick 4 sequence today is essentially the 1st and second favorites with price horse added in. Big race days have a tendency to not be form-full so the price horses should cover us if some carnage occurs!

 

In the Big Cap in race 10 the obvious 1st and 2nd choices are #5 Effinex and #8 Imperative. The big price horse here that looks like a great gamble at 20-1 morning line is #2 Melatonin. I actually think some money will come in on him and we will end up around 10-1 or less. This is a handicapped race so the favorite is carrying a top weight of 123 pounds while Talamo gets to ride Melatonin at 114. He jumping big time in class off a dominating win last out. Melatonin is the kind of horse in a Pick 4 sequence that if the stars align a huge payday awaits!

 

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40.50 with horses listed in preference.

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.
