As of the writing of this a decision on the turf races has not been made yet but given the amount of rain we saw into Monday there is a chance the turf races will be on dirt. I have a different approach to the card today with an emphasis on a couple of races with what should be stand out singles and using those singles to leverage some nice rolling doubles, Pick 3’s and trifecta keys. The Pick 4 has two possible


Possible singles today:

In race 1 Marchtothemusic from Hollendorfer plunges down the class ladder and Jerry is 31% on this move, sharp work last week, early speed so cutback looks perfect

In race 6 Justonetimebaby 1st off the bench in 10 months shortening to what looks to be an ideal distance, Talamo rides, sharp work

In race 7 Calculator for Miller/Arroyo winning 43% looks a standout of the race stays on the Hill, sharp works low odds


Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these

Race 5: XX

Race 8: XX


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $16 with horses listed in preference.







Today’s Pick 5 will cost $16 with horses listed in preference.








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.
