The Pick 4 today begins in race 7 and includes an $8k claimer and ends on the Hillside course with the lowest price being 7/2! Small fields in the Pick 5 sequence and with “take a stand races” it means rolling/doubles and pick 3’s will probably yield better waging value especially if they chalk out.


Possible singles today:

In race 4 Lord Simba from Baffert/Garcia takes the jump up to a G3 after an impressive win last out. This is a rather wide open race with all the horses around the same price so its a race I will take a stand in

Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $18 with horses listed in preference.






Today’s Pick 5 will cost $6 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.
