We missed the Pick 4 in the 1st leg yesterday but then it was bomb central as we rattled off our three longshots in a row including the big race and capped by 16-1 in the final race for a huge $1,723 Pick 3 and rolling doubles of $269 and $379. In ran 10 we ran 1-2-3 and that trifecta paid a big $237. If you are going to get knocked out of a Pick 4 the first leg is the place as it allows you to then go for Pick 3’s and doubles. Anyone who spread in the first leg when one of our choices scratched saw a $7,693 Pick 4 payoff! Great job! After snoozing the last few days Bejarano busted out with three wins while Prat blanked yet again. I told you it would come down to the final days, never count Bejarano out.


Did we ever nail the longshot winners last three yesterday especially the winner of the big race Here is what clients got yesterday!

Race 9: there is a price in here that looks very, very interesting. Union Strike was ridden by Mike ‘Always Second” Smith last out and was actually favored over American Cleopatra. Broke slow as is usually the case with Smith on debut horses and ran on too late to run second. Sharp work for a trainer who sends out few with Garcia in the mount to upset his old boss on his big day expectations? Worth a stab for sure!

Race 10: Barhanpour, another of our longshots with Brice Blanc riding, he rides a horse from his homeland France here, winner last out, ok works on the turf here

Race 11: Cause I’m Bad, same jockey/trainer tandem as our longshot in race 6, ran third last out after having to steady, clean ride today very,very dangerous at a price



We have some great longshot angles today including a scenario similar to yesterday!



I will be covering the short 3 week Los Alamitos meet that begins next week.



Del Mar is where the big prices usually hit and where our biggest wins have come!



Pick 4 “I need a Single” in race 9 Papa Papa Papa has dominated winning three in a row, 2 at Del Mar, sharp work, Prat and this gate to wire horse shortens up too

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 or $42 with horses listed in preference.







Races 1-6 selections and also for $54 Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes









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.”
