Let’s start off with California Chrome who without a doubt is the best race horse in the world right now. Visually impressive at half speed yesterday. I just don’t see anyone coming close in the Breeder’s Cup. As for Beholder, well it was fun while it lasted but that is the last time she blows up one of our Pick 4 tickets. She looked like she was breezing but for some reason Stevens did not urge her on into the stretch and chose to pull the whip out after she fell behind. Bad ride or horse that is on the downswing? Sucks because yet again we connected on great prices in the other legs of the Pick 4 for what would have been a very nice payout!
Despite the small fields today I have a lot of very live longshots at very big prices that could make for big pays in the Pick 4 and Pick 5 as well as in rolling doubles and Pick 3’s
Pick 4 “I need a Single” is going to be in race 6 Ashleyluvssugar who will again try to take them gate to wire, won the G2 going longer last out at Del Mar however read about my longshot in here below..
Best Bets: In the Pick 5 I am singling in race 1 Kenji’s Storm, Chantal has been on fire over the last 3 weeks winning 50% of her mounts, Baltas is 22% 3rd off a layoff, won last race
Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Race 7: Marley’s Freedom, the Baffert and Dorf horses will get all the tote action but Arroyo wins 29% for Baltas, daddy wins 16% 1st out and mommy has 5 winners from 5 starters including stakes and we get 15-1 or more
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $40.50 with horses listed in preference.
Races 1-5 selections and also for $18 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.
