Today’s Pick 4 sequence is another tough one with a 5 1/2 f maiden claiming in the 1st and last legs and a Hillside race in between. The matrix today is $81 but it has a couple of higher priced bombs in it you can pull off to reduce. My standard $40.50 has a mix of favorites and some prices.


In the first leg today I was going to only go two deep but instead chose to add in a price horse as well. The price horse is #1 Dancing Sunset who ran rather well at this distance a couple of races ago and has speed. The drop today adds to the appeal if my top two choices don’t fire. Those tops plays are #2 Amazing Lady and #2 Redeeming Quality.  #2 is a speedster who flew last out going 6 f before tiring so the cut back today should be ideal. #3 is a first time starter for the lethal combo of Myadi/Gonzalez and Tommy Town. Myadia and Gonzalez are hitting a 36% win rate at the meet.

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.
