Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

2,3 with 2 with 3,4,5,7,9 with 3,4,5 = $30

Race 1

(5) FAUST has taken money in two straight off the long layoff.  Seven-year-old gelding should be ready for an improved effort third start back.   (3) ROCKIN H CHEERY O has been competitive against better on the year but rarely wins; use caution.  (4) MOTOR CITY STEEL takes a significant drop in class. 

Race 2  

(7) IMAHAWKCHICK will need to find a way into the race but faces a very weak field full of question marks.  (1) MOLLY VANCE is one of few threats in the race.  (2) BAD ABOUT TOHAPPEN has yet to hit the board in 23 career starts; use underneath. 

Race 3 

(6) MAJOR COUNT is very talented and faces slightly weaker this time out.  (2) PHOTO MASS looks to be in line for a great trip up close.  (1) ALVEREZ appears to be rounding into form. 

Race 4  

In a wide open and evenly matched race, (9) BERGERAC raced well last week just missing against similar.  (8) MR THREE QUARTERS picks up a huge driver change but needs a good setup.  (1) PACIFIC PERCH gets the best post with the top driver. 

Race 5  

(1) PUERTO RICO is an impeccably bred 4-year-old that looks to be improving.  (5) FLY’N ELLIE might be worth a claim having flashed a decent burst of speed.  (3) BELLA RITA will offer a big price; use underneath. 

Race 6  

(8) IMPRESSIVE CHIEF has been facing tougher but will need to find a way into the race from the far outside.  (3) NOWUCIT NOWUDONT raced well last week and needed the start.  (5) ZOLENA should be a little closer turning for home this week but is probably best used underneath. 

Race 7  

(2) THRU N THRU takes a big drop down in class while getting a huge driver change.  (4) UBETTERUBETTERUBET has been knocking on the door at this level; threat.  (5) SANTA’S SPECIAL had some sneaky late pace last week against slightly better. 

Race 8  

(2) ROCKIN FINISH owns all the back class when right.  (3) JUST CROWNED has really had a hard time finding the winner’s circle no matter the level; command a price.  (1) LUCKY REI gets the best post and owns some gate speed. 

Race 9  

(2) WILD WHISKEY has been sharp in two straight.  (6) HOMEMADE will look to make it three straight wins to start the year.  (8) ANDOVERTHEHILL went wire to wire against similar last out. 

Race 10 

In a tough race to gauge, (4) ROCKIN INDY gets sent out for a hot barn against an inconsistent field.  (5) MOMMA’S JOLT just missed up in class last start.  (3) TASSIES LITTLE ART had no excuse last week against softer; use underneath. 

Race 11 

(4) UNTOLD LEGEND is starting to show signs of a turnaround.  (5) TITLE TOWN can beat this bunch with a similar effort to his most recent start.  (3) GRANTLAND gets sent out second start off the claim for capable connections. 

Race 12 

(6) DANISH DESIGN has been superb in two straight.  (3) HOWDEY DEWEY bumps up in class off a nice win from off the pace.  (2) SAKE looks to be a step slower than some in the field; use underneath. 

Race 13  

(2) WESTERN CAPTIVE takes a significant drop down in class but has just been racing evenly.  (3) T RED is probably the biggest threat to the top choice.  (1) READYSETLETSROLL gets the best post dropping down a notch. 

Race 14  

(5) LADY JJ flashed some promise as a 2-year-old.  The now 4-year-old mare looks healthy and has lots of room to improve in her second start back off the long layoff.  (4) TIPONTAB shows competitive efforts against better but has question marks coming off two straight scratches.  (1) GONNAKISSMEORNOT gets some class relief with the best starting post. 

Race 15  

(2) IWANASHOWUSOMETHIN has hit the board in two straight at this level.  (1) RICK’S SIGN has just been racing evenly; command a price.  (3) ENJOY THE SCENERY has room to improve second start back off the short layoff.
