Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

3,5 / 2 / 1,2,4,5,6,9 / 6 = $12

Best Bet: BIG BAD PUDDYCAT (4th)

Spot Play: ARRINGAROSA (12th)

Race 1

(4) WALLSTREET BAILOUT is probably the sharpest horse in the race but gets sent out for a low percentage pilot.  (5) ECHO'S PEARL was very close to similar last week.  (9) FOUL BALL a good effort puts the mare in the mix but the 6-year-old also needs some racing luck.

Race 2

In a weak field full of question marks, (5) MARKET TIMER looks terrible on paper but does take a slight drop down and will offer a monster price.  (3) NATURAL POWER makes his first start in six weeks but has trotted decent miles in the past.  (4) MATTER OF PRIDE well bred gelding is just now back in racing shape and could be ready for an improved effort.

Race 3

(3) FIERCE DESIRE keeps the top driver against an even weaker field than his last.  (4) SIR BARTON picks up a positive driver change; threat.  (1) WOW POWER has not won a race in well over a year; use underneath.

Race 4

(5) BIG BAD PUDDYCAT filly has tons of upside making her second lifetime start.  (6) GOOD ROBERTA raced much better on the lead last out just tiring late.  (2) FLUKY'S GIRL mare can beat this bunch if she rations out her speed; fires early.

Race 5

(3) CHRISTINA VICTORY was one step away from scoring at a nice price last week.  The veteran trotter is a huge threat down at this level.  (4) TRENTS RINGER has been competitive against better but rarely wins.  (6) HELLO CARLO took heavy tote action last week in this class before making a miscue late.

Race 6

(2) SOMEKINDAPARTY was knocked out of the race last week.  The pacer raced gamely at this level the start prior.  (4) STRONSKI owns a decent burst of speed; threat.  (7) SALESMAN looks to be headed in the right direction but needs a good setup.

Race 7

(1) MR APOLLO takes a significant drop in class with a huge driver change.  (9) BALLYKEEL MIKE has put in two improved efforts in a row and will offer a big price.  (3) CAROLINA JACOB has hit the board in four of his last five starts; use underneath.

Race 8

(5) HEZA STAR CRUISER was an easy winner last time down in class against this type of competition.  (3) ROSSRIDGE HANDSOME just missed at this level two back; driver's choice.   (1) AUDITORIAL bumps up a notch off a victory but will need more to hit the top spot.

Race 9

(2) CHEYENE MOISHE will be tough to beat picking up a top driver; fires early.  (4) BAD BUG gets sent out for a capable barn; threat.  (5) COACH KEN couldn't seal the deal down in class last week; use underneath.

Race 10

(2) D J SUPREME picks up a slight upgrade in the bike and has been knocking on the door.  (1) DRIVEN TO SUCCEED gets the best post in a field full of question marks.  (6) WOUNDED WARRIOR has been competitive against better in the past but is tough to endorse at short price.

Race 11

(6) HANGIN JUDGE equaled his lifetime best last week drawing away impressively.  The trotter is right back in at the same level and will be tough to beat with a similar effort.  (5) HARMONY LEGACY might be one of few threats to the top choice if the 5-year-old can mind his manners.  (1) MR FIX IT ELWOOD owns some gate speed with the best post.

Race 12

In a tough race to gauge, (4) ARRINGAROSA has been facing much tougher and should get a good piece with a smooth trip.  (2) UP ALL NIGHT paced a decent mile last week; threat.  (5) UNADORNED HANOVER will offer nice value and could benefit from an early fast pace.

Race 13

(5) REAL SAMART made the most money in the field last year and probably needed his last start coming off a scratch.  (3) MONEY GUNS LAWYERS takes a big dropdown to the bottom level; threat.  (9) REAL FUTURE looks to be in line for a ground saving trip up close.

Race 14

(1) BLAZE LEADER pacer makes his second start in a new barn with the best post.  (4) PRINCE BEACON gets a much better post than the main threats.  (7) FRONTIER JACK picks up a huge driver change but needs to find a way into the race.

Race 15

In one of the toughest races to handicap on the card, (7) NATHAN showed a decent late close last out and should offer a huge price.  (9) RAMEMBER has just been racing evenly; command a price.  (6) RAY'S WESTERN is capable of hitting the ticket with a good setup.
