Another tough day again as we ended up 3/4 for the umpteenth time despite only going 2 deep in the 1st leg on the downhill course and getting a price. We did keep the ticket small and got a nice run for our money. The rails are at 30 feet again today on the turf so that means early speed gets the leg up (as if it needed it in this meet!) Today’s ticket I am doing something different. I am going ALL in the second leg and 2 horses in the other legs!


The 5/2 favorite in the 1st leg today, #2 Pepnic, ran 4th last out on the hill coming from behind and even though he missed by only 2 lengths this race is on turf and this race bias does not favor come from the clouds. However he is the favorite and if I don’t use him my dad will not talk to me! The race set up today does favor #7 Dive Down who has won two straight from the leading pack but makes the big jump up to this class level. Trainer Chew is 33% claim repeat and he does however get a weight break plus Lopez.



Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.


ALL (if you want to spread in other legs 2,1,8,5)






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.”
