We have a Hillside race in race 2 followed by a $6k claimer and the Pick 5 ends in the same race the Pick 4 begins with another Hillside race! Tough card today and I struggled trying to keep the ticket on the low end while still giving us a fighting chance with some bombs and favs’.


Possible singles today:

In race 1 Jill Madden picks up Prat again after running second in the last two (once with Prat). We get sharp works into this race yet again and the stretch out to the mile should get a picture taken!

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.
