Quickie Fair Grounds Pick Four

Not much time to write so let me make it quick:

Race 7 Crescent City for Louisiana Breds
  • With the scratch of Tensas Cat, Redsugar looks like an on-the-loose single.
Race 8 New Orleans
  • With Stonehouse, Battle Plan and General Quarters all on or near the pace from the far outside, there is a potential for a traffic jam from the start and the possibility of a closer to come late. Let's take two out of the three from the outside: Battle Plan and General Quarters and throw in horse-for-the-course Star Guitar.
Race 9 Mervyn Muniz Jr.
  • A turf event, so I might as well spread with Jet Propulsion - possible coast-to-coast candidate, El Caballo to rate just off his flank, Pick Six to pick up the pieces if the pace collapses, Blues Street for getting so good at six.
Race 10 Louisiana Derby
  • There's plenty of pace in here, so we'll find out who can take the pressure and who will fold. Let's take take one up front and one from way back - Discreetly Mine to repeat his Risen Star feat and Stay Put to out kick Ron the Greek to the front, if too many want the lead.
The play for 50-cent: 3/7-9-10/2-4-5-8/7-9 for $12. Good luck with your plays...


  1. Another tough Pick 4 to tackle Tony ($414). I liked STAY PUT to win, but he went wide around both turns - maybe he's just not be good enough. Thought DROSSELMEYER got a better trip and really had no excuse.

  2. At least I redeemed myself by playing a $1 exacta of El Caballo and Blues Street over El Caballo and Pick Six for a $97 on a $3 bet.

    You know Drosselmeyer did break from way out on the right and then was bottled up a bit on the rail turning for home. Once there was room, he had to re-rally along the rail, which isn't easy to do. I think he's good enough for the Derby, but is well behind on graded earnings...
