We got knocked out of the Pick 4 yesterday in the second leg but we knew it was a tough sequence and we kept the bet small. As a consolation though we nailed the Pick 5 for a very nice $553 when one of my long shots of the day Dalmore came home nicely at 6-1. It paid going against the over-rated Ziconic especially with Smith in the irons! We are getting some nice payouts since I switched to the new format so lets keep it up!
Race 1: Edzactly
Race 3: Revenue Virginius
Longshots of the Day:
Race 5: Nashoba’s Gold is unbeaten at this distance and at 10-1 with the top choices running what looks to be slightly longer than they like this price is perfect.
Race 10: Valentine Boy is dropping and shortening today. He has 3 wins 5 thirds from 14 at Santa Anita and is the kind of horse that can win these $8k wide open claimers like this race today.
Race 11: Vagabond Princess – Desormeaux sealed our nice Pick 5 win yesterday. This horse did little last our on dirt and was a surprise favorite so someone saw something. 20-1 today back on turf and blinkers off.
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40.50 with horses listed in preference.
Pick 5 sections and also for exacta and trifecta boxes
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.
