Keep those tickets small! We saw a horse considered the second coming run second under the ride of Smith yesterday in what was likely a prep for Del Mar. Bombs or chalks await us into the weekend!
Race 1: Aidan’s Hope
Race 4: Biltmore Boogie
Race 6: Mai Tai
Longshots of the Day:
Race 2: Pretentious
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-5 selections and also for Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes
All or 5,1,2
Horses listed in brackets are for added coverage if wanted and for exotics.
For races where I only have one or two selections I usually like to KEY the top choice with the second choice and an outside for trifectas.
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.”
