Big-Purse Prizes On The LineIt’s a weekend of high stakes, to say the least, for a few divisions and across the continent. Let’s get right to the action, looking for the possible upsets, the overlooked contenders, the horses that make our purses larger.
‘Jersey’ Boys And Girls
Big Northern Stakes
Saturday night, May 28, it’s time to aim again for a big payout in the no-takeout Pick 4 at Cal Expo from Race 11 through Race 14. Our first leg is a trot, the others are paces.
(1) Foxy Lady De Vie just missed as the choice last out. This group of trotters compete often, so going deeper than usual here makes sense. (4) Franks Best closed well to win and is smoothly gaited to do it again. (7) Giles LS Hanover won last out and did it taking on the outer flow first over; impressive.
(1) Jeano tossed in a real bad race and may be overlooked because of it. Either way, it is tough to leave ‘em out of this uneven bunch. (4) Gorgeous Forever also fell to sleep as the choice last time and must be given another shot, hopefully at a price.
(5) Cinnamon was parked for two calls last out and should get a better go of it here. (7) Tutiming Gal got second after struggling on the outside in a charge that got started too late.
(5) Jill’s Sooter would be a strange single on any occasion but here is a field with poor recent credentials. “Sooter” left strongly last out and an early duel cost ‘em the race. So a good race could be a winning race and nail a decent payoff for the exotic.
If you want to use all of these, the 147/14/57/5 ticket cost $12 ($1 ticket).
