Back to the Great Race Place we go and what a sequence we start the meet with! The 1st leg is on da Hill and the last race is a Grade 2 where all of the 14 runners have a legit shot given the lowest morning line price is 5-1! I do not want to spend a lot of money on the sequence but I am going heavy in 2 of the 4 legs which means I need a horse to single in on. Unfortunately that single is a Baffert who was ice cold at Los Al and burned up a number of our Pick 4 bets. Hopefully, that has changed.


Best Bets:

Race 3: Materialistic

Race 6: Emmzy



Longshots of the Day:

Race 7: Nusret

Race 8: La Berma



Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $20 with horses listed in preference.







Races 1-5 sections and also for Pick 5, exacta and trifecta boxes








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.


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.”
