Race 8 - $10,000 Guaranteed Pick Four Pool

Jeremey’s $1 Pick Four Play:

1,4 / 1,4,7 / 1,2,3 / 6 = $18


Best Bet: BLACK DENIM N LACE (7th)

Spot Play: JIN MCRHODY (9th)

Race 1

(3) FRASER RIDGE looks to be getting better with every start; short price.  (4) TADY‘S COUNT has a very nice pedigree and can improve.  (5) BETTER BELIEVE gets sent out for top connections; needs more. 

Race 2  

(3) BARNABAS looks to bounce back after he had his winning streak snapped in his last start.  (4) MAJOR NEMESIS has some gait issues but if the freshman minds his manners he can upset.  (5) GOTTA GO B B comes from a proven family and has flashed ability. 

Race 3  

(5) MAGIC VACATION might be the only threat to the favorite in the race.  If the 2-year-old somehow manages to get an early lead, he can score.  (1) BUCKEYE BOSS will look to stay undefeated for white hot connections; short price.  (7) ROSE RUN SPANKY gets saddled with a very tough starting post.  The trotter might be able to get up for a nice piece late. 

Race 4 

(4) SCOTCH MCEWAN has now paced two really big miles in a row.  If the pacer can duplicate those efforts he will be tough to beat.  (3) MCGOLD came a nice back half last start from a tough position.  (5) INDIGO ART made a miscue last week but looks to have some ability.

Race 5  

(6) ALWAYS A GOOD TIME got lucky drawing into the weakest division.  The freshman colt‘s sire has been on fire and dominant so far in the stake races.  (4) HOPE IMA VICTORY should be sharper this time out after needing his last start.   (3) JAILHOUSE SAM put in a decent effort last week over the off track; threat. 

Race 6  

(3) SAND STINGER has been much better for new connections.  The pacer will look to make it two in a row against similar.  (5) MYSTICAL HEART closed up good late ground last start and should offer a decent price.  (6) POR QUE NO comes into the race off an easy victory.   The 3-year-old looks to have a much tougher trip to navigate this week. 

Race 7  

(6) BLACK DENIM N LACE swooped the field last week impressively.  The trotting mare might have gained some confidence from that victory.  (4) HEZA MERLIN is a lightly race trotter that has room to improve against a suspect bunch.  (8) WHITE EARNIE needs to find a way into the race but could threaten with some racing luck. 

Race 8  

(1) ELOCUTIONIST gets the best post and is capable of jumping up with a big effort.  (4) MODERN WARFARE is one of a few in the race that has been competitive at this level.  (5) UNADORNED HANOVER always seems to come up empty late.  The pacer could use a smooth trip.

Race 9  

(4) JIN MCRHODY gets sent out for a low percentage pilot, however the 2-year-old will be very dangerous with an easy early lead.  (7) DRUNK ON YOUR LOVE is 3 for 3 but freshman colt gets his biggest test yet with the far outside starting post.  (1) MCTHRILLER is a major player from the rail getting sent out for top connections. 

Race 10  

(2) MCLUCKY has yet to finish worst than second in five career efforts.  (1) CORNER CON ARTIST had no chance last week but will be much closer turning for home.  (3) PACE CAR has been very consistent for the top barn in the country; threat. 

Race 11  

(6) OFFICIALLY CREEK has been sharp in his last two.  The pacing gelding will have his sights set on the front early.  (3) OGRADYS FIRST MAN faces a much softer bunch this week and will offer a nice price.  (4) OHIO LARRY has been racing better than what the pacer shows on paper. 

Race 12 

(3) FLY PAST HANOVER has yet to win on the year but takes a significant drop in class.  (2) CHAD has just been racing evenly but also faces easier.  (1) BOSCO’S ANGEL gets the best post in a weak and inconsistent field. 

Race 13 

(2) SAND ROCKER dominated similar last week and is right back in the same class; short price.  (4) FLYIN ORION has shown good improvement in three straight and could be one of a few threats to the top choice in this race.  (1) ADIOS AMIGOS just missed at this level two back and gets sent out for a low percentage pilot. 

Race 14 

In a weak field full of question marks, (9) YOUHADMEFROMHELLO should be closer turning for home and will offer a big price.  (7) RADIO LOVER would be considered the horse to beat had the filly drew inside.  (1) HEART OF GLASS is a well bred pacer that keeps a top driver and has the best starting post. 

Race 15 

(6) NOBLE TRICK needed his last start on the fair circuit and has lots of room to improve in his second start back off the layoff.  (4) AWESTREOS has been very competitive at this level on the year.  (5) FOX VALLEY ARMOR might need a start but is one of the faster pacers in the race.
