Meadowlands Racetrack Pick 4, Races 6-9, Saturday, March 31, 2012
Last night, we did awful. Love You Always went first over and finished sixth, Bookem broke, Southwest and Glam Cam were in the super and Tiger’s Too Good was too far back. Hopefully lady luck won’t abandon us at the No-luck-for-you orphanage. Tonight’s ticket looks good. Good luck!
$2 Play: 2,6/2,4/9/3 = $8
Race 6- (2) Four Starz Trace tried to prove his talent in a way higher company than this. Since he lost, he will have to start lower and this class may be perfect for him to upset. You may think I’m crazy for picking a 20-1 morning line (also the longest shot on the morning line) but the (6) Southern Sport looks good coming in. A couple of years ago, this horse was in the top company at the Meadowlands, including part of last year. It seems that Mark Ford thought he could go against the big guys in the Four Leaf Clover, but he was unable to do well. At the beginning of the year, he won in non-winners of $10,000 and this is non-winners of $12,750. He makes a slight step up into a bad field and should be the pick of the night.
Race 7- (2) Master Stroke was competitive last week. Closing from way out of it, he only lost by 1 length. In that race, he came from post 5 and he comes to post 2 today. He may be over looked. (4) Excel Nine paced a tough first over last week. As long as he gets a better trip, he should finish in the top three.
Race 8- (9) Picture Me is stepping down into a better company for him. His best race this year was in his last start, where he was a game first over, but faltered. He comes in today with post 9 and may be a price because of his post.
Race 9- (3) Noble Falcon was a beaten favorite in his last two starts. His last start, he went first over and faded. He will either burn money or be ignored tonight.
