Double The Fun For Friday

Hola Amigos,

Welcome to another Friday night of racing at Los Alamitos. Tonight also marks the first Friday of night racing across town at Betfair Hollywood Park and with both tracks running close to each other I expect a big early pick four pool here at Los Alamitos. The early pick four tonight looks very competitve and wide open for me which is great because I believe it is going to yield a big payout. I decided to take a stand in two races and spread in the other two. If my singles come through, I could be in good place to score a nice hit. Let's get to it.

Race 1: The card starts off with this field of bottom level thoroughbred maidens going four and one half furlongs. To give you an idea of what kind of difficult field this is, this field is composed of a 10 time maiden, a dropper from across town, one first time starter, three horses making their second start and one runner that has broken slow in two of her three starts. Between all of them the best finish has been a third placing across the wire. In this kind of field you either spread or single. I will single #2 Kellis Place. This filly was bet down to 5-1 in her debut where she ducked in and hit the rail while facing the boys in a troubled debut to ignore. That was at the begining of march and now comes with almost a two month break and a good maintenance drill. She is now facing the fillies and has some speed in her pedigree. This trainer-jockey combo does good and they finished a good fourth with a runner yesterday at hollywood park.

Race 2: This second race is another bottom level race for maidens going 300 yards. Spread or single. I will single with #3 Ride Torin Ride. I like that this filly has been facing much better while showing some ability and now drops in class and changes to a new trainer that has been doing good lately. She also comes into this race from a freshening since January and had a good tune up drill two weeks ago. Ready.

Race 3: Okay so now that I have my two singles out the way I will spread in the remaining two legs and catch some prices. If both singles hit, we should be looking good from here on out. I will go four deep in this race with #2 Win to Win (dropping and switching from synthetic to dirt where he has 5 wins), #3 Whya Da Whya (deserving favorite, lures Ramon Guce), #4 Ol'dogtown (dropping from Arizona, high percentage connections), and #7 Jans Antor (good effort two races back and lures good rider in Dionicio Navarro).

Race 4: I like many runners in here and can make a case for all of them so I will press the ALL button. Top picks however are #3 RGR Famous Six and #7 Mayla Bonita.

$32 Early Pick Four: 2/3/2,3,4,7/ALL

Good Luck!
