Bet against Baffert worked again yesterday and we scored nice prices in the 1st two legs but that was it as our single ran 3rd in the final leg. 2 of 3 best bets won, granted one of those was a no-brainer Beholder! Today’s Pick 4 begins and ends on the Hill and the second leg is an $8k claimer going 7 furlongs so its going be another tough slog today. I am keeping the tickets small today.

The early sequence today, however, looks very nice for rolling doubles and Pick 3’s!


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



Best Bets:

Race 1: Hunt

Race 3: Little Mustard


Longshots of the Day:

Race 2: Bedeviled

Race 7: He’s A Real Keeper



Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $24 with horses listed in preference.







Races 1-5 selections 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.”
