A small field card awaits us today but it is not as chalky as it first appears. We do have a couple of really interesting price plays that could shake up what looks to be a very predictable and low Pick 4 pay. The Pick 4 ticket is small enough to hit the repeat button a couple of times as well! The Pick 4 and Pick 5’s so far at Los Al are averaging $200-300 excluding day 1’s big Pick 5. A lot of 3rd/4th choice morning line horses are being bet at race time and winning which puts you at a slight disadvantage with advance wagering. Strategy for Los Al remains the same – keep those Pick 5 and Pick 4 bets under $50!
Pick 4 “I need a Single” in race 8 is Enola Gay who is undefeated after 3 races, sharp workout will be low, low odds and a free square on what will likely be a very small pick 4 payout! However, given the ticket is so cheap today xxxxxx

Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $12 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-5 selections and also for $48 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.
