Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Ticket: 2,3,4 / 4,5 / 2 / 3,4,6,8 = $24


Best Bet: STORMY GHOST (13th)


Race 1

In a very weak and inconsistent field of trotters (1) MOMA JEAN'S CROWN should be in line for a forwardly placed trip; vulnerable late.  (9) MISS EVA CASH could be a play against if he doesn't get a bad spot out of the gate; command a price.  (8) SHE'S A JAILBIRD gets a huge driver change and could pick up the pieces in the right scenario.

Race 2

(2) FORTUNE SAILOR made a miscue last out but had been racing gamely prior.  (5) S M'S TERMINATOR needs to stay trotting but does have some ability.  (3) NORMA JEAN HALL is inconsistent but can go a good three quarters of a mile at times.

Race 3

In a tough race to handicap (2) JAY JAY REDSKY drops in class and gets a good post in a wide open field.  (1) WILD RIDE was parked the mile in his first start back off a long layoff but now draws the rail and should be sharper second start back.  (3) ROSE RUN NEMO gelding rarely wins but could hit the board with a trip.

Race 4

(2) SHOCKBYELECTRIC went way too fast to the half last out before fading badly.  The veteran pacer should be up for a better effort especially if he gets a softer half.  (8) DIAMONDS REVENGE owns a touch of back class, will offer a huge price, and should improve some.  (1) INDEPENDENT SPIRIT takes a significant drop in class but has just been racing evenly and could offer low value.

Race 5

(1) LOW AND RIGHT draws the best post and is facing an easier bunch than his last few.  (2) EXPRESSO FORTE looked to be an easy winner last out before being picked off late.  (9) CIEN made the most money in the field last year and might save some ground before shaking loose late; use underneath.

Race 6

In a field with few contenders (4) HIGH STAKES BANKER is probably the horse to beat in the race but is risky picking on top with the slow starts.  (2) LONG STEM ROSE finds a bad field and gets a post edge over her main rivals.  (7) COLBY D is definitely a contender if he can find a way to get involved in the race.

Race 7

(9) POLO JOHNNY could get the trip in the pocket or up close.  (1) STERLING CHRIS turned it around in a big way last out and will probably take significant action; use caution.  (2) JOJO IN THE SKY gets post relief and the trainer pops big prices from time to time.

Race 8

(2) WHITEWATER DELIGHT was used hard into a fast half last out and could use a smooth trip.  (3) JAYNE ROCKS well bred mare has raced much better in three of her last four starts and might be starting to turn a corner.  (4) CULLENATOR had every chance to get the win last out but does find another suspect field.

Race 9

(4) ROSE RUN LEAH just missed last out and raced really well; fires early.  (5) CJ'S SUPER SECRET always seems to offer low value but raced huge last start drawing off nicely.  (2) GIRLS WILLB GIRLS races better on the lead and might just be able to get there with the good post.

Race 10

(2) SWEETHOMEALABAMA A has a good winning percentage and is due for some racing luck.  (1) STETTIN HANOVER gelding doesn't look the best on paper but can pop some big miles from time to time.  (6) GENUINE STAR N keep an eye on this guy because he has the ability to beat this field with a good effort.

Race 11

(6) LITTLE BIT SIDEWAYS came up empty last out but finds a really weak field and will probably offer a better price than the other contenders.  (3) MAJOR MIKE raced gamely from a tough post last start and will probably hit the board with a repeat of that effort.  (4) MAGIC CASINO has shown good closing ability in his last few starts and finds a suspect field.

Race 12

(1) ROMPAWAY ELVIS most likely needed his last start coming off the scratch and has the most upside in the field.  (2) PORSCHE GIBSON closed a lot of ground from a tough spot but will need more.  (3) ELVIS RETURNS should be closer turning for home and is a good candidate to hit the bottom of the ticket.

Race 13

(9) STORMY GHOST put in a big effort from the worst starting post and just might offer a fair price.  (7) SUNNY NEW DAY was an impressive winner last out and might have more to offer; threat.  (2) WESTERN MARK gets a good starting post and also raced gamely last out.

Race 14

(3) MARTINA'S QUEEN went a huge effort out of the blue but was hammered down at the windows.  If the well bred mare races like that again its lights out.  (1) OXFORD HORNET just missed last out tiring late and looks to be in line for another trip up close to the pace.   (2) BRISTOL bumps up in class and might be overlooked a bunch with the top choices big effort last start.

Race 15

(1) EAGLE FLIGHT stallion has a bunch of positives going for him.  The pacer drops in class, draws the best post and looks to be tough in a suspect field.  (3) NIGHT CALL gets some post relief in a wide open race.  (9) TAKE A WALK watch the tote board early on because the pacer is by far the fastest in field if he's right; adds first time lasix.
