Another full 10 race card today for the 3 day weekend of racing awaits us. This is not a particularly easy card today but I have put together a couple of nice tickets that wont break the bank but gives a good chance of collecting!


Get Today’s Full Card for $8





In race 2 Ellis sends out Mystery Train off a year layoff with Steven’s riding and the horse comes in with fast works and cannot be claimed here, all very positive things. However, Ellis trains and Talamo does not ride and that always makes me wary, use but very beatable on that



Possible singles today:

No standouts today


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 8: XX

Race 9: XX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $27 with horses listed in preference.







Today’s Pick 5 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.







Race 6:

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.”
