Last night saw us hit three of four and it ended up being a miserly pay off anyway. Tonight is the $25,000 Guaranteed Pick 4 and going to offer two tickets. Using the selections offered below will cost you $36 and if you hit the “all” button on Race 9 the entire ticket would run you $120. I’m going with the $120 ticket tonight, but will offer three selections for Race 9 if you wish to hold to a tight budget.
Race 7 #2 LoverBoyLou ML 6/1 #5 NJ’s Fast Fletch 7/2 #9 Nash Gram ML 5/1
This is a tough race and if money was no object would take them all here too. We are not even mentioning American Solo or KB’s Robby who both could take this race. I like Nash Gram in this one. A nice paring of 79’s, likes to get out front but has never been on the outside, so that should make it interesting. He picks up Marcus Miller for the first time and Willis has done well with Marcus, .349. Otherwise, NJ’s Fast Fletch would be the one to tag.
Race 8 #1 Dial A Dragon ML 3/1
The Wilfong’s have this 3YO gelding clipping right along. Granted he hasn’t found the winners circle often but seems like he is growing into a fine pacer. He is back to the inside and should find himself in familiar position to pounce on the leaders.
Race 9 #2 Lady Lakers ML 4/1 #8 Cam Town Carrie ML 6/1 #9 Runaway Desirae ML 3/1
If you don’t hit the “all” button, then the one here is the #9. This lightly raced 3YO filly has won her two races and is now moving up in class. I lean to this types and would do the same here tonight. Kristopher Reynolds has a nice record with class movers, .409 and with Roberts they score 42% of the time. There’s plenty of good pacers here including the tough, Lady Lakers.
Race 10 #3 Challenge My Heart ML 4/1 #5 Forcryingoutloud ML 3/1 #8 Accountable Lady ML 5/1 #10 Pickaplacetopark ML 10/1
Anyone of these ladies could win this pace. For my money I’m going to stay with Pickaplacetopark. We had her last time and was set up perfectly to win then had a costly break. She does get the outside post which could be her undoing, but if Todd Warren can straighten her out she will hit a nice payoff. The other I like here is Forcryingoutloud. If you want to add one more horse take a look at the #1 Itzalassi. She is hasn’t been herself of late and is dropping in class and has shown she can run with this group
