Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Maybe some of that good ole Irish Luck will rub off on this Irishman and his readers on this fine day of racing at the Great Race Place!

 

In the 1st leg Bejarano rides for Baltas on #2 Take It Easyplease, a trainer who wins 34% when a beaten favorite. 1st or 2nd in his last 7 starts she is an absolute must use. Bejarano is winning 33% for Baltas too. A case of secondictis is okay because the 2 wins from the last 7 came going 7 furlongs so today’s distance looks perfect for this horse than can go gate to wire or from the back and also runs protected today off the claim. If you need a single here it is! #1 Just Got Lucky ran a stinker last out off two wins and picks up Prat today at 8-1. #7 Cheekaboo tries dirt again (her only win was dirt) and ran 3rd in a stakes race Jan 30. I’m going to stick to these 3 but if you have extra coin throw in #6 Almost Reality.

 

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $24 with horses listed in preference.

Pick 5 will cost $36

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.

 

Irish horse racing saying –

“Bíonn grásta Dé idir an dialait agus an talamh.”

“The grace of God is found between the saddle and the ground.”
