Meadowlands Pick-4, Races 7-10, Friday, Jan. 10, 2014
Last night I played a $12 ticket and wasn't close. Winter Meet totals: seven plays, -$242
$1 play: 89/235/4/2358 = $24
Race 7: I'm going to use two here. My top pick (9) Marty Party is a classy mare but I'll also use (8) Cheyenne Miriam, a mare that is racing in good form over the track.
Race 8: This is a competitive B-2 trot so I'm going three deep. (2) Here Comes Numbers was parked the mile in last and now drops. (3) Mc Tiny's Hope steps up off a sharp win. (5) Viper Blue Chip chased the sharp Sweet Justice in last.
Race 9: (4) Love You Always showed improvement in second start off a layoff in last and now takes a key drop. This is a single for me.
Race 10: This is a good trot and wide open. (2) Riverfest didn't have a good trip in last and now drops to level where she has raced well. (3) Tiger's Too Good takes a key drop. (5) Majestic Stone is 15-1 on the morning line but he needed last and he gets a key driver change here. (8) Frisky Strike raced well in first start for Burke barn.
