Our 1st Thursday card in months and now we know why – 7 races. I am spending more on my Pick 5 today because I am doing ALL in race 3 and 4 looking for some prices!

Pick 5/4 single is in race 5 Cezanne with Prat riding for Baffert and Prat makes a rare appearance here (and the next 2 races) so you know this horse is special. $3.6m horse 1st time routing.

L.A. Times Value Play of the Day

Race 3: Show Business won last out under Flavian Prat on June 14th and today moves up in class and is racing protected off the claim for trainer Steve Knapp. This trainer is 21% 1st off the layoff, 19% 1st off the claim and red hot jockey Juan Hernandez who is winning 29% at the meet and 31% for the year takes the ride. This 8-1 morning line value looks too good to be true!I am using ALL in this race for my Pick 5 ticket.

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.”
