Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

2,3,4,6 / 2,4 / 2,5 / 3 = $16


Best Bet: HARD COLD CASH (11th)

Spot Play: DUSTY DUNES (4th)

Race 1

(4) ZORGWIJK MERCEDES the trotting mare got stung early last week but should be ready for a better effort with a smooth trip.  (7) TA'S AVANCE showed a nice burst of speed last week before tiring late.  (3) SURE THING couldn't win at a lower level but does keep the top driver with a decent post.

Race 2

(3) WOLF CREEK PEGASUS will look to make it two in a row against a suspect bunch.  (2) FLUKY'S GIRL has been close against similar and usually offers a nice price.  (9) TAWA ROAD has been off four months and is probably best used underneath.  The pacer did put in a decent qualifier.

Race 3

(6) FORT COMMANDER will be very tough to beat with a trouble-free trip.  (9) NEELY SPRING has been competitive against better but will need to navigate the second tier.  (5) SCREAMIN DREAMIN takes a significant drop in class; threat.

Race 4

(9) DUSTY DUNES raced very well last week from a tough post.  (5) MAJOR SPEED will likely be closer turning for home this week and can threaten with a good setup.  (2) DANNYS MAN rarely wins but might be in line for a ground saving trip up close.

Race 5

(9) FOUL BALL six-year-old just missed when last seen at this level a few starts ago. (5) ECHO'S PEARL is also dropping down a notch but looks to offer low value.  (4) IM is capable of trotting a good mile but gets sent out for a low percentage pilot.

Race 6

(9) ONEMORELASTCHANCE picks up a huge driver change down in class.  (1) JET SET STYLE gets the best post in a weak and inconsistent field.  (8) REAL SAMART has some question marks coming off a scratch, however the pacer does own a class edge when right.

Race 7

(1) HANGIN JUDGE is one of few in the race who owns a decent burst of speed.  (5) VALENEOUS filly faces older but looks to be primed for a better effort.  (4) BUCKWILD is just now back in racing shape and has shown good closing ability.

Race 8

In a wide open and tough race to gauge, (6) MANTACULATER will offer a monster price and could pick up the pieces in the right scenario.  (4) MIDNIGHT DRAGON bumps up in class off an easy win.  The 7-year-old needs to avoid an early speed duel for his best chance.  (3) UNADORNED HANOVER went coast to coast last week against weaker; fires early.

Race 9

(2) CHAMBORO AS came up empty last week but had been racing gamely prior.  If the gelding trotter gives a good effort he's a big threat.  (4) GREEN ACRELOLLYPOP has shown the ability to compete but its been almost two years since he got his picture taken; use caution.  (9) MR FIX IT ELWOOD could be the sleeper in the race with a good setup.

Race 10

(5) CAMCRUISER HANOVER has some red flags that stick out in the program but the pacer makes his third start in the top barn adding first time lasix.  (2) RUST BELT is capable of pacing a good mile but races inconsistently from week to week.  (1) SANTA'S SPECIAL doesn't look the best on paper but will offer a big price with the best post.

Race 11

(3) HARD COLD CASH has been real good in two straight and faces similar.  (4) NO WAY BLUE CHIP well bred pacer is one of few in the race with upside and has plenty of room to improve.  (2) BEAUTIFUL RED  has hit the board in six straight, however the pacer lacks a big burst of speed; use underneath.

Race 12

(6) HELLO CARLO has a good history at this track facing this type of competition.  (4) MISS RILEY has been knocking on the door; versatile.  (1) DARTMOUTH HALL is the horse to beat with the best post adding second-time lasix.

Race 13

(3) BLACKBIRD SINGING veteran stallion might have more to offer making his third start back off a long layoff.  (6) SJ'S BLISSFUL GUY bumps up in class off a game victory; threat.  (1) WINTER CRUISE gets the best post in a field full of question marks.

Race 14

(6) THE PRICE YOU PAY hit the board at a big price two back.  The pacer needs a lot of racing luck but finds a really weak field.  (4) BURSTING BLAZE needed his last start and can beat this field if ready.  (3) RAY'S WESTERN closed ground from a tough post last week.  The 10-year-old should be closer turning for home.

Race 15

(7) LIMA RITCH pacer gets a negative driver change but can blow up the tote board if they go fast early.  (4) TREV ADAMS ATTACK is the horse to beat making his third start back off a layoff.  (6) FIERCE DESIRE has just been racing evenly; use underneath.
