3-Time To Roll
5-Thinking Out Loud
7-A Rocknroll Dance
In the scenario where Sweet Lou doesn’t fire on all cylanders, beware of the prices for A Rocknroll Dance, who should clearly race better than his elim; and Pet Rock, who, all things being equal, should get the best trip. These upset scenarios are the best we feel can happen.
Race 9 through Race 12 make up June 15’s no-takeout Pick 4. Let’s look at some of our contenders for a small ticket that could present a big return.
(8) Total Up won so big last week that it is hard to believe he could bounce, even from the 8 hole.
(7) Jess Or No had a tough start dueling and still went on to take the race into his win column. (9) Cherry Tree Nicole stormed from the 10 hole and went very wide to make a go at the leader but took only the fifth spot. She is a good overlay for this ticket.
(1) Barona Destiny was gaining with a strong outside move but could not sustain the pace and deserves a shot here. (7) Vantage stunk up the track as the choice; we’ll ignore that and go with ‘er again.
(5) Blissfull Winds was third, backed well, and could fire better in this one. (8) Heartland Express won with a strong brush and may need it again from post 8.
