A 65-1 bomb in the first leg is all I need to say as we rolled to 3 out of 4 on the Pick 4 again! The big race was a thrilling affair that saw Shared Belief prove, in my eyes, that he should have been Horse of The Year. We have another $500k Guarantee Pick 4 today so let’s get crackin’!
In race #6 we have #2 Casual Attire who has not raced since September of 2013 but he comes with the potent tandem of Miller and Trujillo who are 43% so far. The tepid morning line favorite is #8 Night Badger who always gets a piece of the action but never makes it to the winners circle. Perhaps today. When 7/2 is the shortest price in a race it usually means its really anyone’s race. Unfortunately today is not a day where there is a clear single allowing extra picks in a race. I could do a couple of others in here like #& Raspberry Ala Mode or #10 Public Policy but IM so-so on them so will stick with two.
#8 Frensham could be a possible single for some handicappers today. He’s moving way, way down in class today after running 5th in the Grade 1 in December. Midnight Hawk who won on Friday finished ninth in that race perhaps indicating this is indeed the winning level for Frensham. It could also mean Frenshams best days have passed so for that reason I’ll also use some others here. #6 Rolo Tamaci races for the 50% Baltas/Bejarano tandem. #10 Sir Barclay I’ll use from the Hess/Desormeaux winning tandem. He’s also looking for his 3rd straight win.
There are two clear front runners in the downhill race today in race 8th and I will use them both: #5 Franticola and #9 Birdlover. Fanticola won gate to wire in her last. Birdlover has not raced since Feb of 2014 but has been working well. If you want better coverage in this race also consider #3 Sky Treasure who is dropping for a jockey/trainer winning 26% of the time. This is the closer of the field could that could steal it on the wire.
The favorite in the last race is #4 This Time I Win who did win big in her last race despite a slow start which makes it all the more impressive. #1 Molton Image has not raced in 2 years but the horse comes in protected and has been working well at Los Al.
Today’s bet will cost $18
Good luck today!
