Monmouth: Pick 5 Coming Up


The upcoming 6th race marks the start of the Pick 5, another skullbuster. The first leg is the seemingly obligatory maiden turf route, and you'll probably need to go a little deep, but the 2nd leg seems manageable -- my keys are Goombada Guska and Dead Money. Scratches helped make the 8th, the third leg, into a more affordable race, as it's wide-open, and late defections also help Maram in the final leg. She's now breaking from post nine, after originally drawing widest in a 14-horse field, thanks to five scratches.
