Race 4 - $50,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Best Bet: GRACEFUL MELODY (5th)

Spot Play: SHHH IT’S A SECRET (8th)

 

Race 1

(1) OLIVER SILK draws inside and was a game third last week in this class. He was only defeated by a length and comes from the Baillargeon barn. (3) AMERICAN SUPERMAN overcame post 10 last week to finish fourth and gets major class relief in here. (6) SORRENTO HALL moves into the Zeron barn after finishing third last start in a stakes final at The Red Mile. He may offer a nice price and is worth a look.

Race 2

(4) STUBBORN BELLE won the Peaceful Way in her latest and is the filly to beat in here. (5) AMOUREUSE HANOVER has been a player all season in the Gold Series and finished fourth in the Peaceful Way final. She's an obvious choice for the exactor. (3) GEE OKEEFFE draws inside and has only missed the board once from seven starts this season.

Race 3

(8) ACAPULCO HALL receives class relief in here, is versatile and is due for a big effort. (5) LMC MARSHMELLOW has hit the board in two of her three career starts, begins from a good post and drops in class. (3) CHARLESTON SPRINGS draws inside, comes from the Henriksen barn and should offer a nice price. He's versatile and shows flashes of quick speed.

Race 4

(7) LIGHT OF AVELINE was a game third in her career debut last week and can only improve off that effort. (9) MACH SOME NOISE has pedigree and top connections in her corner. She may offer a nice price from an outside post. (3) PLAY GROUND draws inside and has scored back-to-back wins coming into this contest.

Race 5

(2) GRACEFUL MELODY has a one-for-14 record this season, but has been much better in her last two. I believe she's sitting on a big effort and offers terrific gate speed. (6) SAM enjoys racing off a helmet and should offer a nice price in this field. (8) SEAWIND GINGER comes from the Corey Johnson barn, drops in class and gets Jamieson in the bike.

Race 6

(1) CLIMB HIGHER draws the rail, gets Jamieson in the bike and is very likeable in this class. (4) CAREFULWHATYOUWISH has hit the board in five of eight starts this season along with three wins. (2) MAXIMUS DEO draws inside, comes from the O'Sullivan barn and will make his third career start. He continues to drop time and improve in each outing.

Race 7

(6) ELECTRIFY was too far back last start for trainer Fine and should receive a better trip in here. He drops in class and gets MacDonald back aboard. (7) VITAL SIGN has been very consistent in recent weeks along with a pair of wins in his last three. (8) P L GYRO doesn't like to win, but can't be overlooked with his on-the-board efforts this season. He's been very consistent over the past number of weeks.

Race 8

(1) SHHH IT'S A SECRET draws the rail, has a terrific record this season and will debut for high percentage trainer Nixon. (7) EMBRY SEELSTER was a closing second last week in this class, draws well and has been consistent in this class. (4) NINE LIVES HANOVER was a winner two back before self destructing last week. If she's on her game, she's a player in this contest.

Race 9

(3) DANIELLE HALL went a tough trip in her latest in the Peaceful Way final, but has five wins this season to her credit. She's hard to overlook in this dash with her quick speed and connections. (1) JUANITAS FURY has hit the board in seven of eight starts this season, comes from the Bax barn and finished second in the Peaceful Way final. (5) MUSCLE BABY DOLL comes from the O'Sullivan barn, is fresh off a win and has an excellent record this season.

Race 10

(8) RIVETING tends to offer quick speed, but doesn't have the best winning record this season. She's at a level where she's very capable of winning. (2) DAZZLE N DELIGHT draws inside and has hit the board in each of her last two starts. (3) MISS DOLLAR MAM has seven wins this season, comes from the Auciello barn and has been much better in her last two.

Race 11

(10) FOREGO THE CIGAR is fresh off a win, moves back into the Jarvis barn and looks like the horse to beat despite a post 10 start. (3) DIANES SHARK was a winner last week in this class, draws inside and comes from the Fine barn. (6) LITTLE QUICK has a patented late kick and draws well. He shouldn't be positioned too far back turning for home and is a logical threat for the triactor.
