Yesterday was just ugly, there is no other word. As has been the case in this short Los Al meet whenever you make a stand the opposite happens. O’Neill has been ice cold all summer so you discount his droppers and they win easy. Baffert/Elliot are red hot so you single and they finish nowhere! Even if we were alive to the last race in the Pick 4 yesterday a jockey’s objection took the favorite down even though no real interference was seen in my book and objections winning in California are rare. Two more days till some real racing!
Pick 4 “I need a Single” in race 6 Bernie Sensation from the Baffert/Elliot tandem, lost by a nose last out at this distance, sharp work. I am also
In the Pick 5
Best Bets: Accelerate won both starts at this distance…..
Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $16 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-5 selections and also for $24 Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes
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.
