LA Times Value Play:

Race 1: Starship Endeavor is ridden by Jessica Pyfer for trainer Bob Hess Jr. Jessica has won many a value play for us this year with her weight break. Starship flashed sharp early speed last out before getting caught. We all know today’s tactic – pop the gate from the 10 post, take the lead and win gate-to-wire for us at 15-1. A couple of sharp works since the last race add to the appeal. 

Value Plays for Today:.

Race 4: Irondale – the top choices seem to find trouble and if they do…

Race 5: Liam’s Love – Prat at 10-1. Offlee Naughty is Rispoli at 12-1, on turf!

Race 7: Southern Horse is an Argentenian horse that raced in Grade 3 races at the Curragh then shipped out to the States earlier this year. Sharp works Rsipoli is enticed at 15-1 and their route for the 1st time. Fantastic price!

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.”
