Don’t forget we get an extra day of racing tomorrow!


You can see my best bets, longshots and the Pick 5 selections over on my website for free


Best Bets:

Race 4: Tuscany Beauty

Race 5: Mr. Opportunistic


Longshots of the Day:

Race 8: Irish – big price and red hot Prat has hopped on


Race 10: #3 Sheer Pleasure is a dirt racer and lost on turf to #8 Singing Kitty who I am

also using. I like this horse and I like the price we are getting today.  #5 Lily Kai gives us a great 8-1 price today and her races have been much better than they look with lots of trouble. Jumping big time in class today but I think she belongs. #6 Bert’s Melody looks very strong in here on the drop and cut back in distance and second off a long layoff.


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $32 with horses listed in preference.






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




5 (4,6)

2 (1,3)


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.”
