$10,688 Pick Six Carryover up for Grabs

Hola amigos,

I am back after a brief break from blogging for another week of racing at Los Alamitos Race Course with a nine-race card on this Friday evening. The card features five races around the turn for the Thoroughbreds and four races down the stretch for the Quarter Horses which should make for a good competitive card. The featured event is a $20,000 Claimer for Quarter Horses going 330-yards which will go as race 8 on the night. From the betting perspective, the pick-4 pools continue to remain strong and there is also a nice $10,688 pick-6 carryover to tackle tonight so do not get shut out. I do not see any big upsets in the pick-4s so i will play economic tickets and press the repeat button and hope to hit those plays multiple times. The pick-6 looks more difficult but will also tackle it with an economic $32 ticket with two singles. Let's get to the selections and plays.

Race 1:  5-4-9
#5 Front Page Dancer- claimed by Treece, agressive Guce up, blinkers on, expect big effort.
#4 Johan - Biancone ships from across town, bullet 3f drill at SA, blinkers on, bug rider up.
#9 Ride Captain- was my pick last two outs but tired in the late, good speed though.

Race 2:  4-2-5
#4 Big Swiss - effort two & three back wins here, drops class, back to winning rider Navarro.
#2 Hammurabi - 2-for-4 locally, drops in class, has enough speed to stalk leaders.
#5 Get Off The Sugar - troubled trip last out, switches to hot-riding Guce, likes Los Al.

Race 3:  5-1-6
#5 Shady Votes - Dueled from inside post, can steal the race in field with no strong speed.
#1 Three Pointer - Unlucky to lose last out after bad break off of 18-month layoff. Ready.
#6  Boston Baked Bean - decent 3rd last out off of 10-month layoff. Guce gets the call.

Race 4:  3-6-1
#3 Remarkable Cartel - has been facing much tougher, drops class, this is his field to win.
#6 Czech This Dream - good efforts in 3 starts, first time lasix, first time under the lights.
#1 Better Later - has gotten close to breaking maiden, new trainer, has gate speed.

Race 5:  5-4-6
#5 Princess Annabella - dueled open $4k claimers in Fno, Guce takes the call. Interesting.
#4 Looking Out - is 4-for-6 locally, tired at 5f at TuP, had 3-race winning streak at LosAl.
#6 Breathless - good win on Fpx dirt, but stopped badly at GG, good connections.

Race 6:  2-5-4
#2 Loon Lost - consistent, earned career-best beyer last win, Hanson 29% first off claim.
#5 Cruz'n Kitty - Martin ships, mare is 5-for-7 locally, Guce knows her, horse for course.
#4 Lorenbray - dueled and held 4th, is 2-for-3 locally, Craigmyle 31% first off claim.

Race 7:  3-6-2
#3 Levi James - a win & a 2nd at this level, has good gate speed and is still improving.
#6 Boot Up Your Assets - good maiden win, only fourth lifetime start, good post.
#2 More Outs - ignore last race (reared at start), good win at this level two starts ago.

Race 8:  6-3-4
#6 Frequentflyer - stong win at this distance, gets outside post again, best speed number.
#3 Steely - faced starter allowance foes last two starts, filly has talent to win here.
#4 Texas Time Bandit - two strong wins since joining Jones barn, has good late kick.

Race 9:  7-1-4
#7 Dip Dash - good 2nd in debut, leading rider Mendez up, goes from rail to outside.
#1 Stranger Ways - makes 2nd start off layoff, we have not seen best of this gelding yet.
#4 JvBlacky - takes biggest drop out of the field, figures to show run against this group.

My Plays:

Race 1:  $1 Early Pick Four ($9):  5 / 2,4,5 / 1,5,6 / 3

Race 4:  $2 Pick Six ($32):  3 / 4,5 / 2,5 / 3,6 / 3,6 / 7

Race 6:  $1 Late Pick Four ($8):  2,5 / 3,6 / 3,6 / 7

Good Luck with your plays!

I watch horses run around.
