We had 4 of 5 in the Pick 5 and 3 of 4 in the Pick 4 and we ran 2nd third in those loses to our nemesis Smith yet again! That is the 4th ticket he has blown up in the last week! Wins when he shouldn’t, second when he should win! We hit on another couple of longshots that got bet down at race time so our handicapping is right there! A smidge more racing luck and the big pays will follow! We saw a similar thing happen at Del Mar before those big scores hit! Today’s Pick 4 is capped off by an $8k claimer so the pays should be nice.
Pick 4 “I need a Single” is going to be in race 7 Barleysugar
Best Bets: In the Pick 5 I am singling in race 1 again today, this time on Vai who should dominate this race. Won her debut at Del Mar, sharp work last week, take the 4/5 free spot and spread in the following legs!
Longshots of the Day: Win/place bets on these
Race 5: Fooled Again, looking for 3rd win in a row at this distance, moving up in class so we get 15-1 or better but we get Perez who is off to a good start and this front runner from the 3 spot will have to go and has proven he can gate to wire
Race 7: Del Mar Ann, off the shelf after a year, 2 wins from 4 starts and jockey/trainer are also 2 of 4 for a big ROI from longshot wins, sharp works fantastic for 50% winner, this jockey also hoped off Barbara Beatrice who he rode almost every race on and who is 8-1
Race 8: Skookum Spirit, the morning line must be wrong at 10-1 here on a horse that is looking for the 3rd win in a row at this distance, trainer reclaimed after losing last out
Today’s Late Pick 4 will cost $36 with horses listed in preference
Races 1-5 selections and also for $36 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.
