4 o clock Friday and as always the track tends to play a little different.

Value Play of the Day:

Race 2: Takethediamondlane comes off a year break and races protected today with a series of bullet works including a best of 115 work last week. This horse won its debut at the beach in 2019. 12-1 is GREAT value for a horse locked and loaded to pay those bills and not risked for a claim today

Value Plays for Today:

Race 1: Kazuhiko debuts from Australia for Mnadella and Pyfer jumps on. A series of bullet works since arriving in the States this horse debted in a G3 race down under. Rare to see Aussies horses here 

Race 4: Lady Robin looks very interesting here for this small stable that also owns this horse. Always at the line this tandem won last out at this distance on dirt. From 7 turf races the record is 1-2-2. Horses over 5-1 have won 6 of 12 times. Robin has almost as much speed, back speed and closing kick as others in here except we get 12-1.

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.”
