We missed out on the LOWWWW Pick 4 payout but did rather well throughout the rest of the card with rolling doubles, triples and our best bet and “longshot” winning. I think yesterday’s Pick 4 was the lowest I have ever seen here! It looks like another chalky day today so I will be keeping the ticket on the low side again. Rain is expected today and we have one leg on the sequence on turf. My selections for that race assume it runs on dirt.


Best Bets:

Race 1: Flexible Ethics

Race 5: Makena



Longshots of the Day:

Race 2: Dragon Eyes

Race 4: Misty’sviewthegold


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $8 with horses listed in preference.

4 (use 1,2 if you want more coverage)


6,4,1,9 (use 1 if race is on dirt only)



Pick 5 sections and also for exacta and trifecta boxes

7 (5,1)



3,4 (2)

4 (1,2)


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.
