Friday Night of Racing At Los Alamitos & BetFair Hollywood Park

Hola Amigos,

It is the starting night of the racing week here at Los Alamitos with a great nine-race card with a first post set for 7:05pm and do not forget that we should have BIG pick four pools with Hollywood Park also racing at night with a post of 7pm. Check TheRacingEdition.com for my top three picks in each race of the Hollywood Park card. I love the card at Los Alamitos with a focus on the early pick four. Let's get to it.

Race 1: The early pick four starts with a thoroughbred event for $3,200 claimers. I see this race as a three-horse race between #1,#2 and #7. I do not see much difference in the odds on these three runners at post time so i will take a stand and single in this leg instead of tripling the value of the ticket right away. I will single #1 Blue Marrow. This filly had rattled off three consecutive wins before her last start where she finished third. The wins were also visually impressive because of her fast early speed and the will to finish even though she had some wide trips around the turn in those efforts. She comes first off the claim for trainer Charles Treece who is winning at 34% with that move and also 35% when he team up with Ramon Guce. This filly has shown terrific sub-21 second speed and is dropping from the claimed level ($5,000 OPEN condition, much tougher) into this conditional $3,200 level. All systems go from the rail. Single.

Race 2: If we get our single in the first leg, we should have a good looking ticket from here on out to score. I will use three horses in this maiden field going 300 yards. Have to use the well-bred #2 Native Tea Rose who has turned in some good works in preparation for her debut here. Will also use #4 Joy Roses Eagle Sa who is the only runner with experience and had some good works prior to her debut last time when she broke bad. Cannot leave out the Corona Cartel filly #5 La Deja Blue who comes from a good barn and shows a recent good drill of 12.1. Dangerous.

Race 3: I Will use two runners in here with my top pick being #4 Clever Me, he is by one of my favorite sires TR Dasher, who has two good looking works leading up to this race and comes from a trainer that does good with his quarter horses and can win at a price. The Red-Hot barn of Juan Aleman sends out the buzz horse #7 Bon Accord. This gelding has posted two sparkling workouts that jump off the page and with the was this trainer has been going lately, do not be surprised if we see a monster performance.

Race 4: This Allowance race is in my opinion the most wide open race in the early pick four sequence. I will go five deep to close out my play. #2 Warm and Cozy (great works, first start of 3yo season, upset special), #3 One Famous Ferragamo (Class of the field, good numbers, deserving favorite), #4 Red Dasher (Talented Gelding that always is close at the end), #5 Oceanik (first-time gelding, freshened since march) and #8 Fdd Elvis (First-time Gelding and Freshened since march and notice that he was a debut winner).

$30 Early Pick Four: 1/2,4,5/4,7/2,3,4,5,8

Good Luck! Let's Get Some Winners!
