Horse Racing Picks

Most Likely Winner: (Race 8: Pops Legacy #4, 9/5):

Keith Charles trains, and also owns, Pops Legacy #4. This is a hard-knocking claimer with all sorts of Delta experience under his belt. At times he will be a bit of a miss, but I think in this “cheapo” race he should be in fine shape. His fitness at this stage of the Meet is more than adequate to score against these types.

Wager: $100 Win, #4

 

Favorite I Am Against: (Race 1: Redoux #6, 6/5):

It looks like Joel Berndt has a runaway victor here in this MC event, but I am not so sure. Even though he gives the leg up to Tim Thornton in here, Redoux #6 might not have the gas when he needs it most. The past 2 trips look like misses, when he should have probably won. Instead, I want to go with once again a Mineshaft colt named Waypoint #7. Last time, he failed in an MC contest where there were only 4 entries. He is a much better horse than that 3rd place finish. If I can get 9/2 or higher, I think this is the one to play. Will not be easy to best this presumptive favorite, but I never back down from a fight!

Wager: Bankroll: $100, Graduated Wager, WPS #7 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)

 

Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 3: Brooklyn’s Grip #3, 8/1):

Patti Turner is bringing Brooklyn’s Grip #3 off the bench after last year’s campaign that included a spell at LA Downs. Now, the LA Bred is going to take on the boys in this MC spot. I always like this angle, and it should be an interesting race to watch and wager on. If the mare is sharp, like I think she will be, then I see no reason why she cannot win. Her price could go over 11/1 or 12/1, very easily.

Wager: $2 Exacta Wheel, 3 w 1/2/4/5/6/7/8/9/10

 

Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 4: Dirt, 1 Mile, ALLW38k, F&M 4+):

This field is a nice mid-size, and if you can find the right seam, it might end up being a great betting opportunity. My sense is that Brett Brinkman has the winner in Duepeg #5. Since last summer, this mare has been pretty professional when it comes to the company she keeps. No hanging around with wastrel claimers anymore! Here is a runner with ability. At this point, looking over the form and watching some of the playbacks, I don’t see much difference between her and the M/L favorite, Wildabout Audrey #2. Is there really that much of a difference between the 2 of them? I think Brinkman’s will end up a much better price. Easy decision…

Wager: $100, Win #5
