Meadowlands Back; Blogs Hot On The ‘Trail’ Of Grand Circuit Action
Around The Ovals
North of the border Woodbine continues to introduce the new herd of sophomore pacers, launching the Diplomat Series for the colts and the Princess Stakes for fillies.
Saturday night, May 7, we endeavor with another ticket for the no-takeout Pick 4 from Race 11 through Race 14.
(5) Mighty Fine Hi Ho had only one move but it was a strong venture that far exceeded his 13-1 send off. (6) Arch Nemesis found a way to be third at 9-1 and looks to improve, perhaps at odds like that or better. These two are good prospects considering the crowd will probably hail the horses coming out of posts 2 and 3.
(8) Lucky Peterson was third at 6-1, not firing entirely. This could be a more aggressive trip, especially from the outside. As well, (9) Itza Free For All is a beaten favorite that can rebound from last week’s loss and do the job at good odds considering his post.
(2) Linnea Blue Chip is a fine single here. Last week’s journey proved futile to a horse that got away from the pack and drew off by 8 lengths. Best of the rest, “Linnea” was sturdy and towered over the others, deserving great expectations for this week against some dull participants.
(1) One Hot Tamale tries again as a part of our combo and we have to use him, since that trip was tough enough to excuse. It was amazing he was 4-1 there, where he should have been the dead-on choice. (5) Beach Beach Beach can string together wins and seems to be on another campaign to streak. He won at 3-1 going first over gallantly and drawing off to win.
If you want to use all of these, the 56/89/2/15 ticket cost $8 ($1 ticket).
