Short But Competitive Friday

Hola amigos,

Es Viernes! (It's Friday). The week of racing at Los Alamitos starts tonight with a first post of 7pm pacific. Although the early pick four only has six runners in each race, there seems to be at least four contenders to win in each race. Small but competitive fields are on tap and the pick four pools are bigger than ever here at the orange county oval. Let's get to it.

Race 1: In the opening race I am going two deep. #2 Whizer is rounding into form and last time out got second against a solid horse that was dropping from Golden Gate fields. Has enough speed to stay close withing striking distance. Top pick will be #3 I told You Twice. This gelding goes second off the claim for a trainer that wins his fair share of thoroughbred races. This field is lacking speed and this horse can show much better speed with a 10lb apprentice on board.

Race 2: Three deep in this event with #1 Spot of salt who already has 2 wins from 3 starts at los alamitos and goes first off the claim for trainer Charles Treece who is winning at 37% with that move. Top pick is #2 Wakan Tanka who comes off two back to back second place finishes in fast races. Also using #4 Ritzville who is slightly dropping in class to a level he ran second to races ago to a sharp winner who returned to win.

Race 3: I am going two deep in this race with the closer #2 seafire and the speed #6 Bev's Ex who is also dropping in class.

Race 4: Two deep to close out my pick four with top pick being #1 Just Charmed who should get a nice stalking trip behind the speed. The sharp horse is #3 You Bettor Beware who is coming into this race with three consecutive wins in strong efforts.

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

Good Luck!
