Short fields to end the week

LA Times Value Play:

Race 2: Barsabas – these 2 year old races have been pretty formful at the meet but today perhaps it’s time for a value winner. Juan Hernandez rides for trainer Ryan Hanson and they are 2 of 2 at the meet with a fat ROI.

Race 8: B’esame Me Mucho – the other Ron Ellis horse and Umberto Rispoli bothers to ride. This is the only horse entered for the $50k claiming tag for a trainer who does well on this move.

Typos happen and I do my best not to make them. Always read through my writeups to make sure the posted numbers are correct. I list Pick 4, Pick 5 selections and also a listing of all plays for each race. If there are any differences, please let me know.

*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.”
