Opening Night! 2011-2012 season Early Pick 4

It is Friday december 30th and it is opening night of the new racing season at Los Alamitos Race Course. The best bet in night racing is definitely the pick 4's here at los alamitos with both the early and late pick 4's averaging some great pool sizes. What I love most is that you don't need much more than a couple beaten favorites and that is enough to trigger some juicy payoffs. Without further delay let's get to my pick 4 play for tonight's card. Its a small, affordable ticket only $24.

Race 1: I am gonna go two deep to start off the 1st leg. Using #3 which is only making his second start and takes a class drop for past season leading trainer Paul Jones. In addition were going to throw in #6 which is getting a barn change and switching to a 21% percent trainer last season and is also dropping in class and his race two back fits very well. (3,6)

Race 2: This 4 1/2 furlong event does not have some defined speed but I will go 3 deep here. Will use #1 which seems to be with the best speed of the bunch and also has the rail draw which should allow him to out break the field and establish control of the rail. Also using #2 which seems to have enough position speed to stalk the pace and grind late. Finally were gonna use # 3 which showed a closing kick last time out and now gets the services of hot-riding Cheryl Charlton. She has been riding lights out for trainer Keith Craigmyle. (1,2,3)

Race 3: Were going two deep in this race. #5 is coming off a freshning and comes into the race dropping in class from a futurity trial. Great connections, freshening, class drop, all systems go. Also throwing into our ticket #7 which showed great improvement last time out with a good break and his number makes him dangerous right back with his ouside post. (5,7)

Race 4: To close out our pick 4 we are going two deep. #4 is coming fresh from a break into this race from a very powerfull barn. He is dropping in class and shows a bullet workout last time out which indicates he's ready to fire a good one. Closing out our ticket will be #8 which is only making his second start and gets a good outside post. He got bet down first time out and should improve tonight. (4,8)

Ticket recap ($24): 3,6/1,2,3/5,7/4,8

Good luck!.
