Giuseppe let me introduce you to Guce

Hola Amigos,

Welcome to Sunday racing at Los Alamitos with a first post set for 5:35 pm that concludes the racing week. Los amigos across town at Betfair Hollywood Park are wrapping up their opening weekend of racing and the racing world gets anxious for the running of the Kentucky Derby this coming Saturday. A great solid field is linning up at Churchill Downs in what looks to be one of the best group of talented runners ever assembled (at least in my era, I'm in my mid twenties). It should be a great week of racing coming up this week with many tracks having some great cards and then on Sunday May 6  Los Alamitos will have the trials for the Grade 3 Kindergarden Futurity showcasing some very talented two-year olds. Great time of year to be a horse racing fan and more importantly, perfect timing for us to take new people out to the track and introduce them to this sport. Let's promote and have some fun. Let's get to tonight's early pick four.

Race 1: This race seems pretty straight forward to me and I do not see anybody other than the three top choices winning this race. I will single #5 Giuseppe G who is making his third start locally and has run a 4th and a 3rd place finish in his two tries here. There is not much speed lined up and I think the change to jockey Ramon Guce will make the difference to get this gelding to the winners circle.

Race 2: Two deep for me in this race with #1 Warrens Hot Stuff who just ran too good to lose last time when beaten a nose while running a game effort. I like him back in this spot because of his rail position and he should break in top and control the pace. My top pick however will be #4 Thunder One. This gelding is a professional with 31 in the money finishes of 51 lifetime starts with over $100,000 in earnings. His race two back will allow him to stay close and be in good position to strike.

Race 3: This is a pretty difficult race to figure out but I landed on the #7 El40. This colt has shown somewhat of good efforts in races past and now gets a top rider in Rodrigo Aceves, a small freshening and a good post to minimize trouble. Single.

Race 4: This race is by far the most competitive of the first four legs of the pick four. I will go Five deep to cover a nice but economic pick four play using #1 Gran Special SA, #2 Tough To Tell, #3 Separate Hawk, #4 Tripps C and #5 Dash Dinastia.

$10 Early Pick Four Play: 5/1,4/7/1,2,3,4,5

Good Luck!
