And we did it again to make it two in a row! The payoff covered the matrix bet and our cheap $24 ticket returned $94. A simple tweak to how we were doing things has us off to a nice start to the holiday weekend. We will need that today however in what looks to be an extremely tough sequence again. I did my best to keep today’s matrix under the $100 mark with an overemphasis on “A” selections and light on “C”‘s.


ShowVivor Pick –  Gramsson Race 1

@DRFFormulator has some really interesting stats on trainer D’Amato and the Hillside course – he is 6 of 8 at the meet including 5 straight. In race 2 today he races a 12-1 short Clear the Way #12. Gonzales takes the mount for a horse trying turf for the 1st time but has a G3 winner in her blood line. A double with #4 in the 1st race and a win/show bet as well.


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $48 with horses listed in preference.






Alternative Pick 4 using the DRF matrix is $99

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.”
