Maiden Stakes Night

Hola Amigos,
Beautiful weather in OC tonight makes a pefect evening to spend it at the track of sunsets and stars, Los Alamitos. Tonight's card is highlighted by the running of the Maiden Stakes with a purse of $151,750 that has a wide open field just begging to be won by a price horse. The early and late pick four's have some good betting choices in the sequence which make for some challenging handicapping. Let's get to it.

Race 1: Two deep in this event with #2 Cowgrlsdontcry who just got nipped at wire last time out for the win when having the lead every step of the way. She now shorten 30 yards and is the one to beat. Top pick will be #3 Red Hot Runaway who is making his first start since december and drops in class. This gelding has showed some numbers that put him in the hunt.

Race 2: Three deep in this race that has some solid runners. Starting off with #2 Sasha Corona who gets the services of leading rider for a barn that he usually does not ride much. Her race three back should put her in the race. Top pick will be #6 Check Over Hope who lugged in last time and was not fully asked to run. Let's see if new rider can get her straight. Closing out with #7 Gc Blondie who has consistent efforts that make her the favorite with an outside post.

Race 3: This seemed like the hardest race for me to figure out given the good level of competition. Four deep with #1 Whittier Girl who is my top pick as she drops for the first time into claiming ranks. Also using #2 Watch This Secret, #4 Dream The Day Away, and #6 Trying.

Race 4: I am going to Single #1 Rare Bac. This gelding comes off a winning effort at this same level last time out. All of his three wins have come with this rider above and he had been facing much classier opponents before. Not to mention that Trainer Paul Jones has been firing with all his runners lately.

$24 Play: 2,3/2,6,7/1,2,4,6/1

Good Luck!

Keep it locked on twitter tonight for a late pk4 play and some paddock picks!
