We kept the streak alive yesterday with our meager $18 Pick 5 returning a very nice $358! Our Best Bet won easy and my sole longshot looked good up to the wire! Unfortunately in the Pick 4 in the second leg where we had half the field a 30-1 horse beat us on the line! Today’s sequence is another toughie but we scored a Pick6 win Sunday, Pick 5 yesterday so perhaps today is Pick 4 day?



Best Bets:

Race 1: Tryst


Longshots of the Day:

Race 3: Frenzified


Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference.







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


6 or ALL






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.”
