Meadowlands Friday Pick 5 Carryover at $12,709


The Meadowlands has a $12,709 carryover into Friday’s Pick 5 pool which begins on the first race (post time 7pm). Typically the Pick 5 pool will attract about $20k, so you can expect a total pool in the $40,000 to $50,000 range, at least.

Let’s take a look at my .50-cent play.

Race 1 – 1, 2, 5
These are my top three picks in my analysis. I could see throwing in #9 Swan Image if you want to spread. He has been racing reasonably well of late.

Race 2 – 1,9,10
Again, my top three picks. #7 Cam B Zipper is an interesting addition for those with a few extra bucks burning a hole in their pockets. This guy really perked up when he changed barns and could continue that trend despite another barn change.

Race 3 – 1, 6
I’m only going with two in here. These look like the most obvious players. I’d either use these two or think about using 6 or 7 horses.

Race 4 – 4
My key came up huge in victory last week. For those that want a cheaper ticket, this is your single. If you like to spread, I would consider adding #1 & #2. Either of those could step up at a price.

Race 5 – 2, 4, 5, 9
This race appears to be a wide open affair. I’ll spread with four and hope to be alive for some decent payoffs.

Total Cost: $36
