Late Pick Four, Saturday, August 25

Have been hitting the Pick 4 regularly. I'm putting in the following Pick 4 ending with the Travers:

9th: 2,4
10th: 2,3,5,7,8
11th: 3
12th: 5,6,10

$1 Pick 4: $30

Travers, Saturday, August 25

I think that 10 Nonios looks to be in a good spot with Johnny V. He'll have to work out a trip from the 10 hole, and in truth, he may not want the 10f. On the other hand, he is improving and he has the best final time from the 9f Haskell behind Paynter. Remember that the Haskell was his first race on dirt, so maybe he has more room for improvement.

The horses to beat are 6 Alpha and 5 Street Life. Alpha had everything his own way in the Jim Dandy on a wet track. I don't see him getting the lead today, but he will stalk. Chad Brown has tried everything to get Street Life into the race earlier. He wants to win here at the Spa. Maybe his win in the Curlin Stakes here hints at an improving horse who will want the 10f distance.

Win: 10
Exacta box: 5-6-10
Exacta box: 10/5-6

Good luck!

Doghouse Posted for Sunday, August 19, 2012

I have posted another abbreviated Doghouse with the Pick 4's.

Go to Meet Mr. X and click on the red Doghouse Confidential button.

Too many turf and too many maiden races. Later races are best.

Good luck!

Abbreviated Doghouse Confidential Posted, Friday, August 17, 2012

I have posted an abbreviated Doghouse listing the horses in my preference order, but no betting strategies. Double A means most preferred.

Go to the Meet Mr. X page and click on the red Doghouse Confidential button.

All races are handicapped for fast and firm so if it rains later in the day and we get a monsoon, you should forget the sheet.

Have been hitting the Pick 4's very well for the now $0.50 bet. That bet has been very profitable. Only down $300 and moving to the positive side.

Good luck.
