A promsing late Pick 4 yesterday at Saratoga turned on its eaar and demolished when 36-1 shot Freedom and Whisky made a late move in the stretch, split horses and got the win. That's horse racing and always a possibility in maiden claiming events. I thought my coverage was solid, I was five "deep" in the race but ran second, third and fourth. 

On the day I gave you 17 horses in the four race sequence that I thought had a chance of "hitting the board". Out of those, I had three winners, three seconds and three thirds. That's a 53% "in the money" percentage and I cover nine of the 12 "payout" slots for a 75% success rate.

In Race 8, the hot hand of Irad Ortiz, Jr continued when Domestic Spending held off hard-charging Gufo at the wire to get the win and pay $16.40.

How about Swiss Skydiver in the Alabama Stakes in Race 9 !! She proved she can be a viable foe in the upcoming Kentucky Oaks against Gamine and ...maybe...Speech with her five-length (or better) win. She simply said "Bye Bye" to the field in the sttretch and paid $4.30 to win as the even money favorite. 

Race 10 was a battle that New York's Finest eventually won in knocking off favorite Shiraz and Maxwell Esquire. That turned out to be a nice exacta and trifecta for you if you went those routes and the winner returned $15.20 

Then...the final. Credit to the winner Freedom and Whisky for finding that hole to get through in the stretch and nose past Mommie's Jewel and Bricco. I thought I had the Pick 4 until the final furlong.

The Pick 4 paid a whopping $3185.25 on the .50 cent ticket with numbers 4-5-5-10

We'll try again next week.
