Upsets from Around the world

Hola Amigos,

With the Dubai World Cup and the Santa Anita Oaks in the books, both won in upset fashion, the start of the card at Los Alamitos awaits us. As always we have some great pools in the pick fours and we have a good nine race betting card on tap. First post has been pushed back slightly today to accommodate the pick four to start after Santa Anita has concluded their card. Can the upsets and great payoffs continue at los al? Les get to it.

Race 1: Two deep in this race with #1 Dave Dave dropping in class of two strong efforts. Either one of his last two efforts would make him tough to beat in this spot. Top pick however will be #4 Jess Good To Be Me. This runner has been given a small break since January and comes in fresh while taking a drop in class into maiden claiming for the first time. In his last start he stumbled badly and lost all chance.

Race 2: Obvious favorite and dropper from Golden Gate will be #4 Black Wildcat for the Paul Jones barn. Also going to use #5 Sommstar who is a first time starter with some decent drills for trainer Charles Treece with good apprentice Juan Sanchez riding.

Race 3: This thoroughbred event seems the most wide open race in the sequence with many runners with good form and good numbers. Going four deep with #1 Smoking Motion (second off layoff, dropping in class, good speed), #2 Fast Tracking (first off claim, hot connections, good win two back), #4 El Valentin (good effort last out at same level), and #6 C'Mon Marquis (first off claim, with a a third and a win in two starts at los alamitos).

Race 4: Two deep to close out the pick four play with #1 Painted Ocean who is intriguing considering he is coming first off the claim for trainer Paul Jones (rarely dabbled into claiming stock, only top quality runners) and win two back fits at this level. Top pick will be #2 Louisiana Flush who just keeps giving consistent efforts with that big closing kick.

$32 Pick Four Play: 1,4/4,5/1,2,4,6/1,2

Good Luck!

I watch horses run around.
