Back Class to Cash

Buenas Tardes Amigos!

It is a gloomy afternoon here in orange county as we approach tonight's racing card from los alamitos.
Nice program on tap with an early pick 4 sequence that features compact but competitive fields. Two thoroughbred races and two quarter horse races complete the early pk4 races 1 thru 4. Tonight, my play will rely on some back class to key my singles for my ticket. Lets's get to it:

Race 1: In this first thoroughbred event i am going to single #3 Highly Unusual. This gelding once upon a time was running 43 and change fractions for the half mile and finishing strong. Obviously he is no the same horse he used to be but he is dropping to the lowest level after two races off a long layoff. He finds a field lacking speed and it is now or never for him to take control out the gate and go as far as he can. I like the switch to jockey Chris Russell and should be aggressive out the gate. Single.

Race 2:  Four deep in this race to cover our ticket. Using #1 Ditched This Corona (dropping), #2 Making Nice(comes off a win), #4 Lousiana Flush(First off a claim and a win), and #6 Cryin The Blues (Is coming off a win).

Race 3: Also Four deep in this thoroughbred event. Using #1 Breezy Johnny which has showed speed before and gets the rail and switching to more aggressive rider. Top pick will be #2 Run Over You which exits a fast run race and should be stalking the pace and be within striking distance. Also using # 6 Warren's hot Stuff which is a claim-back for hot trainer and jockey combo. Finally closing it out with #7 Something Sonic which is also being claimed back for a leading barn is a very speedy gelding that could take them gate to wire with a controlled pace.

Race 4: To close it out we are going to single #4 Grey Diego which comes off a sharp win last time out in a fast time for the level while under a hand ride. This gelding has much past class and the slight bump up in class level should be within reach for this guy. Single to score.

Ticket ($16): 3/1,2,4,6/1,2,6,7/4
