Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

ALL / 7 / 1,3,5,6 / 1 = $32

 

Best Bet: KIASMA (11th)

Spot Play: BOURBON ST HANOVER (10th)

Race 1

In a wide open race  (9) SMOOTH POWER never had a chance last out off a slow middle half with dull cover.  The trotter is one of few that has been competitive at this level but will have to work out a trip.  (2) NORDIC VENTURE was the top driver's choice and will be firing early.  (6) CHIP'S DREAMER bumps up in class off a nice victory in the slop.

Race 2

(7) JOJO IN THE SKY drops in class and went a good effort last out first over.   (6) RAISE THE GIN couldn't win off a perfect trip last start but is a threat at this level.  (8) RIGHT ON TIME needs to find a way into the race with the top driver.

Race 3

(6) LADY REV will offer a big price coming off a miscue.  Trotting mare is really fast but needs a good drive from a low percentage pilot.  (9) PATHIAN well bred mare has really blossomed into a nice race horse this year and just needs to work out a trouble-free trip for a shot late.  (1) CALLING A VICTORY looks like the horse to beat on paper dropping in class, however the trotter could be over bet and has just been racing evenly; use caution.

Race 4

(3) K C COLT gelding has excuses in his last few, should offer a nice price, and has wins at this level on the year.  (5) TEST OF WILL comes into the race on a big time roll; threat. (6) BASILIO BLUE CHIP could hit the board with an early lead but is probably best used underneath.

Race 5

(4) WIND SURFER will look to drop and pop with an aggressive drive.  (6) HUSTLINHANNAH comes into the race sharp and didn't miss by much last out.  (7) ACTION SJ gets sent out for a top trainer but was empty last start; command a price.

Race 6

(7) ALITTLEAINTENOUGH was overmatched last out but has made the most money on the year.  (9) SANTA'S SPECIAL pacer has won two straight since the layoff but does bump up in class for the second straight start; top driver's choice.  (1) HERSMAN gets sent out for an inconsistent trainer but a good effort puts him in the mix.

Race 7

(3) SASSY OSBORNE will be very tough to beat with a similar effort to his last start.  (5) TRUE TO MACH drops down in class coming off a scratch and some dull looking lines.  The pacer is more than capable with a good effort.  (1) HALLIN gets a significant driver change but will also have to be better than his last few starts.

Race 8

(6) TOP OF THE MARK was a game winner at this level last out and also got a good draw.   (5) ROCKIN FINISH gets a big post edge on his main rivals.  The pacer will offer good value with the driver and just needs to be given a chance.  (1) MYBROTHERGEORGE has made a complete turnaround after racing poorly for awhile; threat.

Race 9

(7) MYTHICAL HALL went a big effort in the slop last out just getting picked off late; fires early.  (1) MISCHIEVOUS JESSE could be the only threat to the top choice with a pocket trip.  (8) KIRTY DREAM comes off a victory but had some racing luck and will need more of it from the worst post.

Race 10

(3) BOURBON ST HANOVER picks up the top driver, has been facing slightly better, and should be in a good position turning for home.  (5) ALLAMERICAN PEWTER takes a big jump in class coming off a big mile in the slop.  (6) BAKKEN paced a big mile off a layoff last out and should be better second start back.

Race 11

(1) KIASMA was an easy winner last out and will jog with a similar effort.   (6) POWER ROCK nice-looking pacer comes into the race on a roll and has some upside.  (7) YA GOTTA GO will be looking to make it four wins in as many starts but needs more from a tough post; use underneath.

Race 12

(6) NO SHENANIGANS was an easy winner off a layoff and looks to have more to offer at the same level.  (1) THE MACHSTER has the best post and owns a win at this level two starts ago.  (3) FREDSABULLDOG is very consistent on the year hitting the board in more than half his starts but is best used underneath.

Race 13

In a tough race to gauge (2) BETTOR WIN ships in from out east for connections that can get results.  (3) OSBORNE'S YANKEE was a romping winner the start prior.  A repeat of that effort puts him in the mix.  (1) FOX RIVER MARK bumps up in class but benefits from the rail and a big driver change.

Race 14

(8) TUNEARIFFIC was a game winner off a long layoff and could have more to offer second start back against a suspect bunch.  (9) LEAP OF FAITH has been pacing faster than most of the field but has a very poor record on the year; command a price.  (1) GLASS PACK gets sent out for capable connections that could fire at any moment.

Race 15

(5) LOST JEWELS is due for a good effort down in class; versatile.  (6) ASTOUNDING HANOVER makes his first start in a new barn and faces easier competition.  (1) BURSTING BLAZE was an easy winner at this level last out but does get sent out for provisional driver combined with an inconsistent trainer.
